Sherlock’s Mystery


Sherlock’s Mystery takes us on an adventure during the Victorian era, in a game with 5 reels and 20 lines that was created by the guys from Playtech. Since it’s designed to look like something out of the 19th century, you will find that everything looks a little bit retro inside. The streets of London are visible at the top, with buildings placed on both sides. The game will give you features like the wild, scatter symbols, free games and multipliers.


Graphics & Theme

The theme of the slot is easy to figure out, as anyone can recognize the Sherlock Holmes look of the main character. The game looks modern enough, though I’m not a fan of the drawing style that is used whenever humans are involved. It’s quite different with the various objects that are used as symbols though. Sherlock is accompanied on the reels by the Dr. Watson symbol, along with the hidden face of Professor Moriarty. Various other symbols in the game will give you images of magnifier glasses, letter openers, revolvers, the 221b Baker St. address sign and the playing cards from 9 to A.

Special Effects

Professor Moriarty is the one that has the honor of awarding the slot’s biggest prize. In this case, the payout goes up to 10,000 coins, quite impressive when you consider the total payout. At the same time, this symbol is used in the role of a wild.


The Sherlock and the Watson symbols have some very good prizes of their own to offer, but they also have a sidekick feature that gets activated whenever Watson is on the immediate right of a Sherlock symbol. If that happens, a small payout worth 3x the bet is given to the player.

As any good mystery game will do for you, there is a bonus game here as well, taking you to a crime scene and giving you a chance to make some cash. The Bonus magnifier glass needs to appear on the reels 1, 3 and 5 for this to happen.

The Baker St. address sign will point you in the direction of a round of 10 free games, plus extra wilds and random multipliers. You need the usual minimum of three symbols to get the free spins, but they should be worth it when they are awarded. The player receives a cash prize as well, on top of whatever he makes during the spins.


The game is a must for anyone that loves Sherlock Holmes and wants to experience a little bit of his story in a game. The payouts are also very good, on top of which you will find a good range of features.
