- but why not try one of these?
The famous resident of 221b Baker Street has been the inspiration for more than a few online slots we’ve reviewed over the years but we’re always happy to see Sherlock Holmes pop up in another game. This one’s called The Sherlock Files, it’s developed by Red Rake Gaming and it comes with an enhanced free spins feature.
The Sherlock Files is a five reel slot with three rows and up to thirty paylines; the best way to play this game is to expand your browser window to full screen and then you’ll see the background to the reels is Sherlock’s office, full of everything an experienced detective needs. The reels themselves spin on a wooden and metal frame and there’s some dramatic, contemporary music to accompany your gameplay.
There are lots of theme-related symbols including the maid, the gardener, the butler, the meat cleaver, the spade, the pistol, the hairdryer and a bottle of poison.
The wild symbol is of course the magnifying glass and it will substitute for all others except the bonus symbol – that’s represented by the pipe-smoking Sherlock and it’s the key to the main feature.
This round is triggered by landing three or more of the Sherlock bonus symbols anywhere on the reels; you will now receive 7 free spins but first you can pick one of three bonuses which will be active during those spins:
- Gardener Retrigger – when he lands you will receive an extra free spins
- Butler Multiplier – a multiplier of up to 6x will be applied to each spin
- Wild Maid – all maid symbols become wilds during the free spins
The Sherlock Files is definitely a worthy addition to the ranks of Sherlock-themed online slots already out there; the graphics and animations are of a high quality and the free spins round offers a but more variety than the standard offerings.
