Sherlock’s features and bonuses
Through the sinister smog of old London, a legendary sleuth and his trusty companion, Dr Watson are hot on the trail of big wins. Pursuing the city’s most wanted across the visually-rich metropolis, the daring duo are ably assisted in the base game by a line-up of connecting wilds, double wins and bonus spins.
Landing more than one wild symbol on the reels will connectall wild symbols together and transform all other symbols on the path into connecting wilds. Should two wilds appear adjacently, they will merge to activate the double win feature, causing all line wins from thatspin to be doubled. What’s more, one or two bonus spins can be triggered by landing one wild symbol on either the first or second reels. During this feature, the triggering wild remains fixed on the reels while other symbols spin again.
Holmes and Watson truly up the ante in the game’s free spins bonus round, appearing as expanding wilds and extrawilds. An initial 10 free spins are awarded by landing three or more scatter symbols in the base game. This exciting bonus round can also be retriggered, with a further three scatters adding another 10 free spins to the counter.
