Sherlock and Moriarty WowPot Slot Review

Step on into apartment 221B on Baker Street and share your problem with Sherlock Holmes, the best detective to ever walk the streets of London. Spin to find out more about him!

Our story takes place right outside a small shop with the name of “J&K Wills”, presumably some type of store that could be found in London around that time. At the left of the screen, you will notice more buildings as well as a “wanted” poster mentioning an award that the police give out to whoever catches the criminal. The reel set is located at the center of the interface. Around it, you’re going to find some jackpot indicators, information on how to trigger special features, and the logo of the game.

As for the gameplay, things are fairly conventional with the reels starting to spin altogether coming to rest individually in consecutive order. However, the seemingly dull gameplay is enhanced by the addition of mystery symbols!

This isn’t the first time a piece of literature has made its way into the online slot industry. There are multiple games based on fictitious characters but we are going to recommend a couple of titles that feature Sherlock. These would be Sherlock a Scandal in Bohemia by Tom Horn Gaming and Sherlock of London by Rabcat. Now, let’s get back to the game in question.

How to Play Sherlock and Moriarty WowPot

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines. Like other Just For The Win titles, the controls can be found at the right side of the screen allowing players to spin, change the bet size, enable the autoplay function or enter the in-game menu for further information and gameplay customization.

As for the stakes, bets start at $0.10 and go up to $100 per spin. Sherlock and Moriarty WowPot is a title of medium variance so you can expect to get small and big wins on an average frequency. The game’s maximum exposure is 200x but the progressive jackpot can reach more than 2 million dollars. The return to the player is extremely low at 92.1%.

Sherlock and Moriarty WowPot features 4 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. These come in the form of card values J-A followed by detective inspector Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, Watson, and Sherlock.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The wild substitutes for all other symbols except for scatters, mystery symbols, progressive tokens, and feature symbols.
  • Scatter – Represented by Moriarty, getting 3 or more of these symbols will trigger the free spins feature.
  • Progressive token/Mystery/Feature – Special symbols that each have a different role.

Game Rules

Sherlock and Moriarty WowPot Features

The game might appear very simple at first but a lot is going on under the hood. Let’s check out all the special features this Just For The Win title has to offer!

Jackpot Wheel

The progressive token symbol might appear on top of high paying symbols landing on reels 1, 3, and 5. There is a chance that you will trigger a spin at the Jackpot Wheel of prizes when this happens. Your chances of triggering it scale with the current stake level. The progressive tokens won’t appear during the mystery respins or free spins. Spinning the wheel, you can win:

  • Mini – Starts at 10 credits;
  • Minor – Starts at 100 credits;

  • Major – Starts at 50,000 credits;
  • WowPot! – Starts at 2,000,000 credits.

Jackpot Wheel
Mystery Respins

Getting 4 or fewer mystery symbols will cause them to transform into the same random base game symbol. Landing 5 or more will trigger the associated feature. During the mystery respins, all mystery and wild symbols will be held in place and the reels will spin again.

Landing additional mystery or wild symbols will award an additional respin. All mystery and wild symbols are sticky. A final respin is awarded when no new mystery or wild symbols appear. Wins are only awarded on the triggering spin and the final respin.

Free Spins

Getting 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 scatters will trigger the feature awarding 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 free spins respectively. During the feature, each feature symbol that lands will reveal one of the following:

  • Sticky Wild – The symbol position with the sticky wild will remain in place for the remainder of the free spins;
  • Spins – Awards 1-3 additional free spins;
  • Multiplier – Increases the current win multiplier by 1x.

In case feature symbols land on the last free spin then the first one is guaranteed to reveal additional free spins.
