Microgaming takes you to the smog filled streets of London with their latest slot release Sherlock of London, where you can Join Sherlock Holmes and his trusted assistant Dr Watson to hunt down the criminals. This slot was created in collaboration with Rabcat.

About the slot

Sherlock of London is a video slot offering you 5 reels with 25 paylines and it can be played on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. Wagering starts from 25p per spin to £50 per spin.

Lower value symbols are the 10 to Ace royals, then we have the characters of Irene Adler, Inspector Lestrade, Dr Watson and  Moriarty. The wild symbol is Sherlock Holmes himself and this will substitute all of the other symbols. The highest value symbol is the 221B Baker Street sign, landing 5 on a payline will pay out x40 of your wager.

Gameplay

The Connecting Wild Features is triggered when you land more than 1 wild symbol on the same spin, this will create a trail between the wilds and turn all connecting symbols into wilds.

You will trigger the Double Win Feature which will give you a multiplier worth x2, if you land a wild symbol next to another wild symbol in adjacent columns.

Landing a wild symbol on the 1st and 2nd reels will trigger the Bonus Spins Feature and you will be awarded with 1-2 bonus spins. Any wilds that land will become locked wilds and you can also trigger the Connecting Wilds and the Double Win Features during the bonus spins.

The Free Spins Feature comes into play when you land 3 or more scatter symbols (Holmes and Watson) on the reels, this will give you 10 free spins, and any wild symbol that lands on the reels will become an expanding wild. Connecting Wilds and the Double Win features will also come in to play.

To make it more interesting, Dr Watson will also become an extra wild during the free spins, but he will just be a standard wild.

This slot has been very well designed and the extra features on offer will appeal to lots of players. You have the potential to pocket up to x2,000 of your wager on any spin and the slot has a pretty decent RTP of 96.03%
