Sherlock’s reel mystery is an online video slot developed by OpenBet software. This action packed game is based on the famous baker street detective, Sherlock Holmes and it has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines.
The sounds effects are similar to many other slots from this software provider and are quite basic but can easily be turned down, but the accompanying audio isn’t too bad as the reels spin.
The symbols on the reels consist of a female character, the baker street sign, a policeman, k’s, q’s and a’s, a male character, a dog and an evil character. This game also has magnifying glass jackpot symbols. Players will be instantly awarded the mini, midi or maxi jackpot prize when 3, 4 or 5 of the jackpot symbols appear across the reels from just one spin.
The wild symbols are the gun symbols and substitute all other regular symbols on the reels. They will not substitute the scatter symbols, the special feature symbols or the safe bonus game symbols.
The feature symbols are the Sherlock symbols and when three or more of these appear across the reels, this bonus feature is automatically triggered. Players basically have the chance of being able to win between an x5 to x500 stake multiplier from this game.
The scatter symbols are the violins. When three or more of these appear from just one spin in any order across the reels, players will be awarded anywhere between 10 and 60 free spins.
Another entertaining feature on this slot is the safe bonus game. When three or more golden safe symbols appear across the reels, you will have the chance to win anywhere between an x4 to an x20 stake multiplier.
You can place a bet on this slot from as little as 0.40 coins up to a maximum of 500.00 coins (based on betting the maximum number of lines), making this ideal for low rollers and high rollers.
Players can also launch this slot in the free play demo mode where no download is required. Just make sure that you have the latest version flash player already installed onto your system.
Like most OpenBet slots, this game has an autoplay feature that works in a different way than usual. This can be switched on or off at any time and you are not actually given a set number of auto spins to choose from.
This is a great release from OpenBet and is well worth playing, but it’s still not yet widely available.
