How to Play pokie

The Sherlock of London online video slot has five reels and twenty five active lines for combinations. The screen fits fifteen symbols at once.

The range of bets per line varies from one cent to two euro (from twenty five cents to fifty euro per round).

Selection of gaming options includes basic icons, Wilds, Scatters, respins, free spins, advanced features of special symbols, extra multipliers and other opportunities.

Winning combinations can be formed of the same elements, situated next to each other from left to right at one of twenty five active lines. Multiple chains are possible in the result of one round, but only at different lines.

Amounts of payoffs depend on two parameters: the bet per line and special indexes from x3 to x1000, provided by the rules for each of the possible combinations.

A gambling feature is not suggested. Please read about types of symbols and bonus options of the Sherlock of London by Rabcat below in the review.

The game was designed in Victorian style. The reels are spinning in front of dark streets of old London. Stunning icons and unusual animation kinda impress. The sound creates a vibrant mood.

Symbols, Wild, Scatter

The gaming symbols, imaged at the reels of this game, are the main heroes of the novels, as well as other characters: a white-haired man, a fat man in a bowler hat, a one-eyed mustache man and a lady with a grim expression. You will also see the famous house plate, where the detective was living, and playing cards from ten to ace.

Special symbols are the following:

  1. Wild (Sherlock Holmes) replaces ordinary icons in combinations and activates prize features.
  2. Scatter (Holmes and Watson) triggers free spins. You need at least three such symbols anywhere at the screen to roll the prize rounds.
  3. Extra Wild (Watson) – is another Wild symbol, available during free spins.

Amounts of potential wins by the current bet can be found in the paytable of the Sherlock of London.

Bonus games

Let's discuss the bonus features of this game:

  • Connecting Wilds – if at least tho Wild symbols appear at the screen, they bind. All cells between them get loaded by Wild symbols too. After that, you will be paid for all the formed combinations.
  • Double Win – if two Wilds show up next to each other at the neighbor reels, they merge. Wins by combinations they help to make are doubled.
  • Bonus Spin – if you have the only one Wild symbol at the screen, and it is imaged at the first or second reel, one or two bonus spins begin. Wild remains where it was. If another Wild appears, it triggers the Connecting Wilds or the Double Win feature.
  • Free Spins – three and more Scatters trigger ten free spins with an extra Wild. All bonuses are active, but you get an Expanding Wilds Feature instead of the Bonus Spins.
  • Expanding Wilds – one Wild symbol expands and loads the entire reel.

Free spins roll on the casino's expense by the bet of the previous round. You can't change the staked amount.

All the prize features play automatically and do not require any particular knowledge or skills.
