Get Ready for an Epic Adventure

Microgaming’s latest addition to its offering has been developed exclusively for the renowned developer by Rabcat, an independent game studio behind such popular titles as Castle Builder II and Crystal Rift.

Sherlock of London features a standard five-reel three-row layout with a total of 25 pay-is lines, taking players to the 19th century London where they’ll join Sherlock and his trusty companion Dr. Watson as they fight crime and search for some big wins.

The daring duo will chase London’s most wanted villains across the Victorian metropolis, while at the same time looking to make the most out of the wide offer of potentially lucrative features such as connecting Wilds, double win and bonus spins.

Sherlock Holmes himself appears on the reels during the Main Game, as the game’s Wild symbol, offering plenty of ways to handsomely award lucky punters.

Be on the Lookout for Wilds

Getting more than one Wild symbols anywhere on the reels will connect all Wilds together, turning all other symbols on their path into connecting Wilds.

If two Wild symbols appear adjacently, they will merge into one, triggering the double win feature in the process. This will cause all line wins from that spin to be doubled. But there’s more as one or two bonus symbols can be activated by simply landing one Wild on reel 1 or 2. While this feature is active, the Wild symbol that triggered it will stay locked in position while all other icons spin again.

Holmes and Watson make their appearance in the Free Spin bonus round as expanding Wilds and extra Wilds. Landing a minimum of three Scatters in the Main Game will award 10 free spins, which may not seem that much, but punters can add another 10 spins to the count by landing addition three Scatters.

Commenting on the launch of the game, James Buchanan Director of Global Operations at Microgaming said Sherlock of London provided a slot experience with Wild features that heightened the action in both the base game and free spins. He added the mysterious atmosphere and thrilling adventures were well represented in the game, with excellent artwork and an evocative soundtrack.

Thomas Schleischitz, Chief Executive Officer at Rabcat stated his company was delighted to bring Sherlock of London to Microgaming’s award-winning portfolio.

Schleischitz pointed out the team working on this game had had a brilliant time pulling together the murky, fog-filled world of criminal rogues and sleuthing geniuses, and added the company was confident that players would have as much fun exploring the game as they had.

Sherlock of London can be played at any online casino powered by Microgaming.

The launch of this game comes shortly after the renowned developer released the new video slot based on the popular American band Village People.
