Are you a super sleuth who’s always on the hunt for clues to a fortune? Then lose yourself in the ‘pea-soup’ fog of Victorian London and find amazing jackpots to be won as you follow in the footsteps of the greatest detective ever, Mr Sherlock Holmes. Yggdrasil’s Holmes and the Stolen Stones casino slot is inspired by the fantastic adventures and brilliant mind of the fictional private eye, but the winnings to be made in this slot are far from tall tales - it’s a true adventure.
As you might have guessed, being a detective yourself, the object of the game is for Holmes to track down priceless stolen stones. There are five varieties of stones to find and each is linked to a jackpot prize that will heighten the sense of adventure. These jackpots are to be found in the free spins or bonus game. Even if you don’t quite hit them, you're still likely to pocket a tidy amount of loot for your efforts.
The regular icons are the standard card suits: Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs, and Spades. Images of Holmes and Watson are also featured, along with a magnifying glass (of course!) and a notebook. Holmes, with his trademark deerstalker hat, is the highest paying symbol of the game but the right combination of the other symbols across the twenty paylines will surely boost your bankroll. Holmes and the Stolen Stones boasts a whopping 96.2% Return to Player ratio and with its easy-to-grasp format, the standard five reels and three rows, you can be playing and winning within minutes.
If there are mysteries to be solved and cash to be won in the regular game, just wait until your investigation leads you to the excellent bonus feature. You may notice occasional keyhole symbols showing up on the reels and there’s a rusty one that holds greater glory. Line up three or more of these aged keyholes on the reels and the bonus game is activated. Along with that activation you’ll scoop a tidy prize of up to ten thousand coins. You will find yourself now in a warehouse that is stacked with crates. What’s inside? You’ll have to open them to find out. It could be a precious stone that you’ve been seeking, or it could be another welcome cash prize to add to your stash. Watch out though, as it could also be a smoke bomb, one of these will end the bonus game immediately and bring you back to the main game.
The free spins feature of this game is activated by the other type of keyhole symbol - the golden one. Line up three or more and you’re in free spin heaven. Not only will you pocket another awesome payday of up to 10,000 coins, but this is where you can really chase those jackpots. Keep collecting the stones and once you gather five of one colour (red, blue, yellow, green, or purple) you will win the assigned jackpot for that stone.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones is not only fun, exciting, and beautifully designed, it’s also got so many ways to win that you’ll keep coming back for more. It’s elementary, my dear Watson!
