After a massive rib feast, I decided I needed to get in shape. And what better way to work up a sweat than to chase some baddies? Let’s slip on our deerstalker hats shall we, and get on board the Sherlock’s Casebook slot express. Other than that fella in the Agent Destiny slot, Sherlock is our top rated detective in the casino.
Master games maker 1×2 Gaming has set the bar high with this Victorian-era crime fest. Join the world’s most famous detective on London’s crime strewn streets and try and make a mint while you keep the marauding Dr Moriarty and his gang of n’er do wells at bay. I’m up for this one Wombat fans!
Look and Feel
London’s streets have been bought to life with colour and first-class animation on this 5 reel 25 pay-line slot. Good job 1X2.
The whole scene is Victorian England of course, so you’ll see muted colours and a grimy atmosphere filled with crooks creeping around corners. It’s not called the Big Smoke for nothing!
Behind the reels are the filthy cobbles of London with Big Ben and St Paul’s Cathedral in the background. All we need now is a few pearly kings and queens mooching around with Dick van Dyke accents…..
A swanky gold frame holds all the reel action. Let’s hope those London streets are paved with gold.
Sherlock’s Casebook Slot Game Play
First of all, the highest value standard icon is the legendary 221B Baker Street sign. That is the pad of Sherlock Holmes himself, of course: the address is nearly as famous as Wombat Towers! 3 of these icons on a pay-line generate a 50 coin prize.
Next up is a magnifying glass – the key to cracking those famous cases. Then there’s a pistol, just in case, and Sherlock’s violin. Also, there’s Sherlock’s smoking pipe, a famed item to help the brainwaves to fire up so that Sherlock can berate Watson and solve the case. When I have to concentrate really hard I love sucking a Mintie for the same reason.
Lastly, there’s the famed deerstalker hat: the famous detective’s iconic head gear that keeps his nut warm in the wet damp London winters.
And you can’t miss the Ace through 10 of the card deck displayed in smart Victorian era lettering. These symbols make the lower value icons on the reels.
As soon as you spot Sherlock on the reels then you’ve lucked in. This character is the Wild with a touch of extra zing. At random, Sherlock becomes a special Expanding Wild taking up a whole reel. This Holmes is something of a dandy with a feather in his hat and a long coat. And, Sherlock subs for all standard icons.
There’s also a second Wild, which is activated in the free spins game. Who’s missing from the gang? Of course, it’s Holmes’ sidekick, Dr Watson. He is the equivalent of my own Auntie Winona Wombat. I have no idea what she is muttering to me half the time, but every now and then she gives me a flash of inspiration!
The eye-catching Scatter is a London lady who was a society darling and Sherlock’s sometimes love interest, Irene Adler. She’s hard to miss with red hair and wearing a whole heap of jewels. And she’s only available in the base game, so don’t wait around for her in the free spins.
Get crime-fighting and winning underway by landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters. You’ll get your paws on 10, 15 or 20 free games respectively. Not bad, slot lovers, try and unleash some big wins with some of those puppies.
And better still, during the free spins any standard Wild that lands become a sticky Wild. That’s Watson for you: he sticks around through thick and thin.
This legend of a detective has plenty of action: Sherlock’s Casebook slot is a highly respectable addition to the crime fighting slot genre.
There’s also Rabcat’s Sherlock of London slot if you love chasing the bad guys, that’s also worth a try.
With slick styling, expanding Wilds, Frozen Wilds and generous bonus games, you’ll be on the trail of the master criminals and cracking cases before you can say, “The game is afoot.”
