Crafted by Tom Horn Gaming software, The Sherlock. A Scandal in Bohemia Slot has five reels and twenty-five paylines reuniting the famous Sherlock Holmes and his faithful partner Dr Watson to engage in a battle once again.
Players need to get hold of a compromising photograph that once belonged to the King of Bohemia, and if they choose to help him, players will be handsomely rewarded.
How to play The Sherlock. A Scandal in Bohemia
Before players can help locate the photograph, they will need to adjust their game settings:
Coin denominations can be changed by clicking on the +/- Bet Value section. This will form players total bet per spin.
Players can play the game to its maximum potential if they press the Bet Max section.
Pressing spin will begin to set the reels in motion.
Should players get tired of spinning the reels manually, they can use the games autoplay feature that turns the reels for a select number of times.
Bonus features of The Sherlock. A Scandal in Bohemia
As players help Holmes chase Irene Adler, they will enjoy plenty of highlights along the adventure including two secondary bonus games, high paying icons and free spins as they advance through this reimagining take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic story of detective fiction.
The Paparazzi Bonus Game
Players can activate the trigger the Paparazzi Bonus Game if they land three, four or five Paparazzi Bonus icons anywhere on the reels. Players do not need to land the symbols on an active pay line to activate the feature.
Then it is a Pick a Win round to maximise players winning potential with winning four varying levels. Each level players advance to will have a various number of options for them to pick from in descending order from four to one. In every level, players will have one attempt to choose, and they win when players don't meet a Paparazzi. Whenever players find a Paparazzi, the bonus game comes to an end.
The Newspaper Bonus Game
The Newspaper Bonus Game is activated when players land three, four or five Newspaper Bonus icons anywhere on the reels (not needed to be on an active pay line).
This round has only one level but with six various alternatives to decide from. The players aim is to let the photo remain hidden in this game to keep winning. When the compromising photo appears the bonus game will suddenly end.
To trigger the games free spins players will need to land three, four or five scatter icons on the reels that will trigger ten, fifteen or twenty free spins respectively. Sadly, the free spins cannot be re-activated once initiated. The scatter symbols can land anywhere on the reels and once again will not need to be on a pay line to trigger the feature.
The Sherlock. A Scandal in Bohemia has some tidy bonus games to keep players entertained and some frequent wins.
It's a shame the free spins can't be re-activated mainly since it'll be pretty hard to trigger the game's maximum twenty free spins on the five scatter symbols but again even at ten free spins the game hands out some potential wins.
