Players who like crime, detective work-inspired games will definitely like what Rabcat did with its latest slot game, the Sherlock of London slot. The game is inspired by the most beloved, fictional detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes is known for his extraordinary skills in forensic science, observation, and logical reasoning.
The character first appeared in A Study in Scarlet released in 1887. His character rapidly gained in popularity in 1891 after The Strand Magazine introduced the very first series of Sherlock Holmes short stories beginning with one of the most popular stories to this day, A Scandal in Bohemia.
Considering the popularity of the character in media, there is no wonder why Rabcat introduced its Sherlock Holmes-inspired game. The Sherlock of London slot features 5 reels and 25 paylines with bets starting from only 0.25 credits up to 50 credits per spin. Besides this extraordinary game, Rabcat has also developed a number of other impeccable games such as The Legend of Olympus, Dragon’s Myth, River of Riches, Castle Builder, Frozen Diamonds, Forsaken Kingdom, and Classic 243.
Besides being packed with a number of bonuses and features, the game also impresses with its first-class graphics and visuals. As players join Watson and Sherlock on their adventure in the Sherlock of London slot, they will wander around the streets of gloomy Victorian London depicted in the distance. The game’s symbols are also terrifically well-crafted including royal cards which appear alongside Irene Adler, Dr Watson, Moriarty, Inspector Lestrade and of course, Sherlock Holmes himself.
The most rewarding standard symbol featured in the Sherlock of London slot is the popular 221B Baker Street sign which offers payouts of 40x players’ stake for five matching symbols on a payline. This payout can also be expected from lending Sherlock Holmes symbols which also act as the game’s wild symbols. Besides replacing regular symbols, the game’s wilds also trigger three bonus features including the Connecting Wilds feature, Double Win feature and Bonus Spins feature.
The Connecting Wilds bonus mode forms a trail with all of the included symbols in the trail becoming wilds. With the Double Win feature, players scoop awesome doubled winnings while the Bonus Spins feature brings bonus spins during which wild symbols remain locked in their place. Apart from these generous bonuses, the Sherlock of London slot also features a Free Spins bonus.
This bonus mode is activated by landing three or more of the Holmes and Watson scattered symbols. It should be noted that during this mode, the Bonus Spins feature is not active, but loads of single wilds symbols which expand come into the game. What is even more, during the Free Spins bonus, the Watson symbols act as the game’s second wild symbol.
The Sherlock of London is a medium variance game offering extremely generous winnings of up to 2,000x players’ stake.
