A mystery theme
As any Sherlock fan will know, the fictional character's home is Baker Street in England's capital. The London street sign unveils itself as the wild - a highly valuable icon on the reels. Close behind is Sherlock himself, followed by the violin, the cap and then a mysterious character dressed in blue. Other symbols have been influenced by the mystery series and include a fingerprint, newspaper, pocket notebook and microscope.
The reels, which offer 30 paylines, are set in the detective's retro flat, with a leather armchair to one side and a pile of open reference books to the other. The protagonist is also illustrated true to form wearing his dark tweed overcoat and characteristic scarf. Big Ben, Jewel Jackpot and Crime Scene Bonus icons also appear on the reels to offer even more thrilling prizes.
They are not straightforward, as you would expect from a mystery pokie, and players have to help solve the case before they are treated to any compensation. The background music is orchestral and creates a dramatic atmosphere, reminding us of the urgent task at hand, and the graphics and animations are excellent.
The objective of Sherlock is to land specific combinations on active paylines to win prizes. If you spin three or more of the Big Ben symbols at one time, the free spins round will be triggered (three = 12 free spins, four = 25 free spins and five = 50 free spins).
By getting a combination of the cap on the first reel, Sherlock on the middle reel and the violin on the fifth, you are met with a re-spin round during which the wild stays in the central spot and players must select either of the other two symbols to see how many re-spins they have been awarded.
If this is not enough, the Crime Scene Bonus appears if three or more of the symbols crop up, leading to more rewards. Finally, the progressive Jewel Jackpot can strike at any time and features a wheel to spin to find out what has been won.
