Players will have to use their best sleuthing skills if they want to help solve the mystery in Play’n GO‘s latest release, Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches.
Based on the exploits of the world’s best known fictional private detective, Sherlock Holmes, the medium volatility game is a modern-day version of the classic fruit slot merged with “board-game style mechanics,” and is described as an “interactive experience that puts players right at the heart of the mystery.”
“This game makes the players the central part of the story.”
It serves up 3×3 reel action with wins up to 5,000 times the stake. Players up to the task, take on the seedy criminal underworld of 19th Century London, challenging criminals in a clue-laden bonus game.
Cast of characters:
The mystery-themed game uses 9 fixed paylines and features eight pay symbols divided into low pay weapon symbols, including a noose, a wrench, a dagger, and a pistol, and are worth 0.4 to 1x the stake…
…while in addition to Holmes and his assistant Dr Watson, the cast of characters includes a purple-clad Irene Adler, a veiled Eugenia Ronder, the glasses-wearing “king of the blackmailers,” Charles Augustus Milverton, and a top-hatted and cane-wielding, Professor Moriarty, comprise the higher paying suspects, with values ranging from 2 to 12x the stake.
For added excitement, this unique slot adventure has three Wilds. There is a standard wild and x2 and x3 multiplier versions, each of which can substitute for any regular pay symbol. When more than one multiplier is in action, their values combine up to x27, while x3 wilds on a line pay 324 times the stake.
“Case of Riches,” taken from the title, is the main feature, during which players are tasked with assisting Sherlock in solving a mystery. They do so by rolling the dice and moving around the board while collecting clues and completing challenges to advance.
A magnifying glass with a question mark -?- on a card is the Scatter and it can unlock a host of game features! Landing three awards the Case of Riches Bonus Feature.
Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches builds on the Växjö-headquartered slot provider’s cache of inventive titles, once again linking design, features, and gameplay close to the framework of the story creating an enhanced gaming experience, something that Chief Product Officer for Play’n GO, Martin Zettergren, pointed out in a company press release…
“This game makes the players the central part of the story. Sherlock isn’t solving the mysteries; he’s just assisting them in reaching their final goal.
We’ve created a whole world for players to be part of and with the game’s unique features, there are so many possibilities that they’ll want to play again and again. That’s where the value comes from for them, providing a game that will keep people entertained and keep them guessing!”
Staying true to its busy release schedule for 2020, Play’n GO fans can expect the Swedish developer’s next title, Saxon, to drop on or about August 13. The 5-reel, 3-row, high volatility game pays homage to the English heavy metal band formed in 1977. Along with plenty of Heavy Metal action, the game has the potential for wins of up to 10,000x the bet and expands the supplier’s branded rock range of slots.
