Microgaming, an award-winning slot gaming provider, has announced a new title featuring the legendary sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock of London brings adventure to the reels in a 5×3 grid with 25 paylines. Players will walk among the streets of old London, taking along with Sherlock and his trusty sidekick on the search for big wins.
Features of the Game:
Holmes and Watson take to the city streets in the new game, offering players access to connecting wilds, bonus spins and double wins. Holmes is the wild symbol during the base game, providing several ways in which rewards can be earned.
When players earn more than one wild on the reels of the online slot game, it connects all the wilds together. Other symbols are transformed into connecting wilds. If two appear adjacently, they will merge, and the double win is activated. All line wins from the spin will be doubled.
Bonus spins can also be triggered in the game by earning one wild on the first or second reels. With this special feature, players will find the triggering wild will stay while other symbols will spin again.
Director of Global Operations, James Buchanan, commented on the new game release by stating: “Sherlock of London™ provides a slot experience with wild features that heighten the action in both the base game and free spins. The mysterious atmosphere and thrilling adventures are well represented here, with excellent artwork and an evocative soundtrack.”
The online slot also includes extra wilds and expanding wilds during the extra spins bonus round. Players are given 10 extra spins when three or more scatters are seen on the reels during the base game. This round can be retriggered if three more scatters are found on the reels during the round which triggers ten more spins!
