Pokie Review


There’s a real air of mystery and suspense in IGT’s Sherlock Holmes online pokie. It’s one of the many great free online pokies we have here at Online Pokies 4U, and it’s got so much going for it: great graphics, exciting gameplay, a riveting storyline and some cool bonus features. Oh, and it’s got Robert Downey Junior and Jude Law in their roles as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. What more could you ask?

An Atmospheric Thriller

The game is set in the darkness of Victorian London, and the actual background to the basic game is the front window of Holmes and Watson’s famous lodgings, in 221B Baker Street. There’s a lot to get on with in this game, as the detectives hunt for the clues to solve the crimes.

The game is a five reel, thirty payline pokie, so there are a lot of ways to win even in the basic game. Objects from Sherlock’s lodgings make up the lowest paying symbols - there’s a pipe, a pocket watch, a magnifying glass, a violin and a dog. The symbols will multiply your winnings by five if three of them appear on a payline, but ten if four of them appear, and by thirty if you get five identical symbols on one payline.

The Stars of the Show

Then come the characters: Holmes himself, his trusty sidekick Doctor Watson, Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, and Sherlock’s love interest, the mysterious Irene Adler. They bring with them some generous payouts. Inspector Lestrade and Irene Adler are worth ten times your initial bet if they show up three times, twenty five times the initial bet if you have four of the same character on a payline and seventy five times your initial bet if you get five.

Holmes and Watson, as befits the heroes of the piece, bring even better prizes with them: twenty, fifty or one hundred times your initial bet. Also, there’s a chance for the TeamWork Bonus - the symbols showing the individual characters change to show both Holmes and Watson, and the bonus increases dramatically.

The base game also includes the Sherlock Homes symbol which will pay out up to five hundred times your initial bet, and mystery multiplier which, when it appears, multiplies your winnings still further.

The Plot Thickens

In addition to the base game, you’ll get to play some great Bonus Rounds. There’s a Picker Game, where you choose objects from Sherlock’s rooms to reveal a range of prizes, including cash prizes and also Free Spins for the next bonus feature.

There is the Hunt Bonus game, where you chase the Master Criminal Backwood across the Map Reels and both Holmes and Watson can become Locked Wilds, staying in the same place and also substituting for the other symbols.

Finally there’s the Backwood Wheel, a roulette style wheel where Sherlock must chase down his arch enemy.

This game is exciting, it’s generous and it's great to look at. With so many special features and bonus rounds, the one thing you can’t call it is “elementary”!
