Get ready to walk the dark allies of London, because the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his faithful sidekick, Doctor Watson, are looking for a partner. Help them catch the criminals and you can pocket up to 25,000 coins and learn a bit of something about being a detective from Sherlock’s Casebook, a 5-reel, 3-row video slot that offers 25 fixed paylines.
Playable from $0.20 per spin, the 2019 release is set on the dark streets of medieval London, so be careful when you walk around and make sure you have learned all the rules before you start chasing criminals. The 1x2 Gaming title features a standard 5x3 reel grid and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 25 coins per spin, but the coin value can be altered and the biggest bet players can wager per spin is set at $100. The Autoplay option is just next to the Spin button and once you click on it, a total of 10 automatic spins will be activated, but you can stop them at any time.
When talking about the symbols populating the reels, you will recognize the best detective duo in history. Sherlock Holmes is Expanding Wild that can appear on all reels and will cover the entire reel and substitute for all regular symbols. Dr Watson is also Wild, and he can also be a replacement for all regular symbols, but he only appears during the Free Spins feature as Sticky Wild. High-value symbols include Holmes’ address, the famous 221B Baker Street, his Magnifying Glass, Pistol, Violin, Pipe, Hat and playing cards that act as low-paying symbols. The Young Lady carrying a lot of jewels is Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
Land three, four or five Scatters on the reels to trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Once the feature starts, Doctor Watson will start appearing as Sticky Wild. He will lock on his position for the following free spins and after that he will go away. Remember that Expanding Wild cannot land on the reel that contains Sticky Wild. Use as many Wilds as you can, Sticky or Expanding, to land as many wins as possible. Fill all the cells with Holmes’ address and you will walk away with 25,000 coins.
First of all, we have to say that we simply love the theme of the 2019 release, because we are big fans of Sherlock Holmes. The 1x2 Gaming title boasts very good graphics and a fitting soundtrack that will get you in the right mood as soon as you start spinning the reels. Players can benefit from one additional feature, in the form of free spins and up to 20 freebies can be triggered at once, with all Sticky Wilds and Expanding Wilds you manage to land. We believe that an additional special feature, a certain bonus game could have spiced things up a bit, because everybody expects action and excitement when Sherlock Holmes arrives.
