Those of you who are eager to start playing should focus on the size of their total bet first. Twelve different bets are available to players in this title. The lowest amount that you can use per spin is €0.20. The Sherlock Bones slot lets players bet with up to €100 per spin. Take your time, choose the right bet and click on the button with a blue pointer to move those five reels. There are three rows per reel here.
On the right side of the screen, you can spot three other buttons. First of all, we have the speaker button. As expected, every player can regulate the music in this game at any point. Next, there is a regular Play button that will lead you to different auto-spin options. You can play up to 100 auto-play spins and set different limits. Lastly, you can use the gear button to get all the information about the game rules and symbols.
On the paytable of the Sherlock Bones slot, you will notice seven regular symbols. It all starts with the King playing card icon in green color. Three, four, or five of them on adjacent positions on the reels will provide 0.2, 0.5, or 1 time your total bet. You can expect similar prizes from the brown Ace – 0.4, 0.6, or 1 time your bet. Then there’s the smoking pipe. 0.6, 0.8, or 1.5 times the total bet are given to players that have three, four, or five smoking pipes on adjacent positions.
The magnifying glass is the first among these symbols that can double your bet. Namely, five of these icons on adjacent positions will multiply the bet by two. Three, four, or five dog paws will provide 2, 3, or 4 times the total bet. The funny dachshund with mustaches (Mr. Watson) provides prizes worth 3, 4, or 6 times the bet. We also have a cat with a monocle (Professor Moriarty) that can multiply your bet by 4, 6, or 10 times if you have three, four, or five of them on adjacent positions. Despite the presence of a wild icon, you can’t expect a special paying symbol in this game.
Sherlock Holmes, the well-known fictional detective, looks like a hound in this game. He is actually the wild icon. It can land on all reels except the first one. It substitutes for missing regular symbols to help players finish winning combinations. The wild will also activate a bonus reel spin.
The best (and only) Sherlock Bones bonus feature is linked to this bonus reel located under the regular reels. It’s horizontal, and it can display a bone symbol. A symbol like this situated right under the wild icon will activate the Rolling Re-spins feature. There is no classic Sherlock Bones free spins round, but this one is equally good.
Before you get the free re-spin, the wild icon that has activated the feature will expand downwards and move to the left. You will get at least one win in this way. The wild icon will keep moving to the left and add one more tow for each new re-spin. The highest number of rows you can add in this way is four. As a result, the number of win ways will grow too (up to 16,807 ways to win). If a new wild icon appears during this mode and there’s a bone underneath, it will act in the same way.
In theory, the Sherlock Bones RTP is 96.21%. That’s a Return to Player percentage that goes above the standard level. The volatility of this game, on the other hand, is at a medium level.
