Where to play?
Sherlock of London is a new Rabcat slot for 2019 inspired by the hugely popular fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Set in Victorian-era London, this slot invites you to put your sleuthing skills to the test as you spin the reels and hope to land some big wins. Played on a standard three-row, five-reel grid, the slot has 25 paylines you can win on, all of which run from left to right only. The slot’s variance is medium and its RTP is a decent 96.03%. Well themed with top-quality graphics and sound effects, the slot does a brilliant job of immersing you in the crime-ridden world of the detective. It’s not just all style and no substance, though, as the slot has its fair share of bonus features to keep you spinning the reels again and again.
Symbols and Payouts
When playing Sherlock of London, there are 10 standard symbols that can appear on the reels. There are five themed card ranks (A, K, Q, J and 10), as well as four character symbols and a gold plaque with Sherlock’s home address, 221B Baker Street, on it. Other symbols include the wild, which depicts Sherlock looking into a magnifying glass, and the scatter, which depicts Sherlock and his close friend and sidekick Dr. Watson.
The gold plaque symbol is the slot’s most valuable one. Land five of these on an active payline and you’ll receive a payout worth 40x your bet. During the slot’s free spins feature, the Dr. Watson symbol also offers 40x payouts for five on a payline. During the base game, however, the Dr. Watson symbol’s payout for five on a payline is 5x.
If two or more wilds appear on the same spin, the Connecting Wilds feature will trigger. A path will form between the two wilds and all symbols on that path will turn into wilds, giving you more chances to win. If two wilds appear next to each other on the same row on adjacent reels, the Double Win feature will trigger. For this, any wins you get on this spin are doubled. There’s also the Bonus Spins feature, which you get to play whenever you land one wild on reel 1 or 2. You’ll get one respin with the wild locked in place. If this spin produces an extra wild, the Connecting Wilds trigger or Double Win feature will trigger. If there’s no new wild, you’ll get a second respin, then the feature will end.
If you land three or more scatter symbols on the same spin, you’ll receive 10 free spins. While free spins are in play, both the Connecting Wilds and the Double Win features can be triggered. However, the Bonus Spins feature can’t. Instead, if just one wild lands on the reels, that wild expands to fill the entire reel. Also during free spins, the Dr. Watson symbol acts as a wild and also offers the same payouts as the gold plaque symbol. This extra wild, however, can’t trigger any of the slot’s bonus features.
Sherlock of London is an impressive new slot by Rabcat that does an excellent job of paying tribute to the famous fictional detective. The slot not only looks great, it’s also good fun to play thanks to its many bonus features that focus on wilds. If you’re a fan of Sherlock and his mystery-solving skills, have a spin of this well designed slot and accompany the detective as he solves yet another case. Along the way, you may encounter exciting features such as respins, free spins, connecting wilds and expanding wilds to help you bring in some wins.
