Sherlock - Murdered To Death from mFortune: Slot Review - a crime worth solving!
This game revolves around the eponymous detective Sherlock Holmes as he tries to solve a complicated case. So get ready to take a trip to Murder Moors and you will need all your wits about you to help Sherlock solve the crime and win a nice payout in the process! A good thing to know is that you are not alone as help is at hand as Watson, Lestrade, Irene Adler, and Mrs Hudson are all here to aid you in cracking the case wide open.
It is a 5 reel slot game with 15 paylines and comes with features such as free spins, a gamble mode, two mini-games and a progressive jackpot.
The first thing I encountered while playing this game is the Wild symbol and this is depicted by an image of Mrs Hudson. It substitutes for all symbols except the other bonus symbols and it is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 Wild symbols then you will be treated to a whopping 2,000X your line bet!
The next feature that I came across was the Free Spins mode. To activate this feature, you need to land 3 Newspaper symbols anywhere across the reels. It is possible to win up to 9 Free Spins if you manage to land 5 Newspaper symbols along the reels. It is also nice to know that Free Spins can be retriggered in this feature.
This slot also features two very interesting mini-games. The first one is called the Clueless Mini Game and it appears separately in a 3x3 grid above the main game. You need to land 2 or more Moriarty symbols to trigger this game. The main objective here is to match the criminal, weapon and murder victims on the reels. Land them correctly and you will be line for a huge multiplier bonus. The more Moriarty symbols you land then the higher the multipliers in this mini-game so try to land as many as you can!
The Find the Lady mini-game is activated when you land two or more of the Green Question mark symbols anywhere across the reels. In this feature, there are 6 clues that consist of multipliers and a special gold coin and you have to click on the clues to see what they are hiding. If you correctly pick the gold coin then you will get to flip it, if it lands with the woman facing up then you will be awarded a huge multiplier. However, if it lands with Hound facing up then you will lose all of your accumulated multipliers. Avoid the Hound at all costs!
The last thing to mention is the Gamble Feature. It lets you set the amount of winnings you want to gamble. It is a pocket watch with multipliers and you can select multipliers ranging from 2X all the way to 15X. It is even possible to set this button to gamble all wins. For this feature, all you have to do is spin the hand of the watch and see what multiplier it will land on. Hopefully, it is worth the risk and you get a nice payout!
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The game is a lovely homage to the Sherlock Holmes of Victorian times. A dusty bookshelf adorns the background of the slot and the symbols run nice and smoothly along the reels. Symbols are wonderfully detailed and consist of many of the characters of Sherlock’s world. The animations are quite good, I especially liked how Mrs Hudson would display Sherlock’s underpants whenever her symbol was part of a win!
The music is atmospheric but a bit loud, I had to lower it sometimes but it does suit the style of this game and it definitely adds suspense as you spin the reels.
