Sherlock of London Slot Review

Walk on the stone-paved streets of Victorian London and gather clues to deduct your final verdict. Let Dr. Watson help you with his witty insights so you can find who did the crime and put them in jail to win the prizes. Spin the reels to solve the case!

Just like other Rabcat Gambling slots, a lot of time has been invested in the visual part of the game. Starting with the background, you can see a suspicious alley on the left and a static image of London on the right with Big Ben in the distance dominating the landscape. The only animated part is the light coming out of a house’s windows now and then.

Moving on to the mechanics, the reels spin altogether and stop individually in consecutive order. The classic gameplay is interrupted by double wins and bonus respins that may activate based on the spin’s conditions.

Multiple other slots feature the legendary detective but one of the best has to be Novomatic’s “Holmes and Watson” so if you like this game make sure to check that slot out as well. For now, let’s get back to the subject in question.

How to Play Sherlock of London

The game has 3 rows and 5 reels with 25 fixed paylines. The controls are found below the reels providing the player the ability to change the bet size or activating the autoplay function among other options. An in-game menu offering further customization is available as well. Bets start at $0.25 and go as high as $50.

Sherlock of London is a medium volatility game making it a great choice for any type of player regardless of his available bankroll. You can expect winning spins regularly as the game has a hit rate of around 30%. The maximum payout is 1,000x the bet amount which can be up to $50,000.

Moving on, the game consists of 5 low paying and 5 high paying symbols. The first are represented by card values 10-A while the latter come in the form of 3 criminals, an address sign, and Dr. Watson.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild symbol is none other than Sherlock Holmes himself. It replaces all other symbols excluding the scatter to complete winning combinations.
  • Extra Wild – An extra wild symbol which only appears during the free spins.
  • Scatter – The slot’s scatter symbol is an image of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Getting 3 scatters will activate the free spins feature.

Game Rules

Sherlock of London Features

The game has its fair share of extra features which can affect the base mode as well as the free games mode spins. Let’s check them out.

Connecting Wild

If more than 1 wild symbols appear in a spin, they will be connected. All symbols located in the line that connects the wild symbols will turn into wilds as well.

Connecting Wild
Double Wins

If 2 wild symbols appear in adjacent reels on the same rows, they will merge and activate the Double Wins feature doubling all line winnings of that spin.

Double Wins
Bonus Spins

This feature will activate only if there is exactly one wild symbol located either in the first or second reel. 1 or 2 bonus spins are awarded during which the wild symbol remains fixed on the reels while all other symbols spin again.

If another wild appears then either the Connecting Wilds or the Double Wins feature is activated and the second bonus spin isn’t triggered. 

Bonus Spins
Free Spins

Getting 3 scatter symbols will trigger the feature awarding the player 10 free spins. During these spins, both the Connecting Wilds and Double Wins features can be triggered.

However, the Bonus Spins feature is replaced by the Expanding Wild feature. This activates when there is exactly one wild on the reels. It expands to fill the entire reel resulting in the whole reel turning into an enlarged wild symbol.

Any Dr. Watson symbol that appears during the free spins will transform into an extra wild symbol. It works in the same way as the Sherlock Holmes wild symbol meaning it can replace all other symbols to complete a winning combination. It cannot trigger any of the bonus features though.
