Although we doubt you are unaware of who Sherlock Homes is, if you haven’t he is a fictional detective, who thanks to the author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, has become something of a legend thanks to his powers of intuition and his ability to solve even the most complicated crimes! His books spawned many television shows and even several films and also a museum exhibition in London.

This Sherlock Mystery slot is a great slot to play if you enjoy playing bonus game awarding slots for when you are playing it you can trigger a potentially high paying pick to win bonus feature round and can also be awarded with a set of free spins.

This bonus payout is worth three times your staked amount and will be awarded to you each time the Sherlock symbol spins in and on the reel position directly to the right of that symbol the Dr Watson symbol spins in.

For reference the Sherlock symbol will pay a payout worth 2000 coins when you get all five of those symbols on an activated payline and five of the Dr Watson reel symbols forming on any payline you have chosen to put into play will award a 1500 coin jackpot.

Free Spins with Extra Wild Symbols
