5-Reel 20-Line Slots
The objective of Sherlock Mystery™ is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.
TO PLAY THE GAME
Only active paylines can register line wins.
Total bet per game round = line bet × active paylines.
Choose your line bet by clicking '–' or '+'.
Choose your paylines on the panel by clicking '–' or '+'.
Click the TURBO MODE button to switch Turbo Mode on or off. When turned on, some win animations and sounds are skipped and the reels spin faster.
Clicking SPIN spins the reels with the currently selected lines and line bet. During the reel spin the SPIN button changes into STOP. Clicking STOP ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
Pressing the Spacebar key spins the reels with the currently selected total bet.
The reels can also be spun using the Auto Play function. Mouse over the AUTO PLAY button to display the list of options.
Select the number of spins to be played automatically or choose the UNTIL FEATURE to spin until the Free Games or Bonus round is triggered.
Click on an option to start the Autoplay function. During Autoplay mode the AUTO PLAY button changes into a smaller STOP AUTOPLAY button for stopping Autoplay mode. The number of auto spins left is displayed above the smaller STOP AUTOPLAY button, unless you've chosen the UNTIL FEATURE option.
To enter the triggered Free Games or Bonus feature, click the CLICK TO START button. After the end of the free games, clicking CONTINUE on the winnings summary board takes you back to the main game or resumes Autoplay mode (if there are any auto spins left to play).
The paytable can be accessed via the INFO button or the Menu in the top casino toolbar.
Wins are calculated according to the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Menu.
Line win = line bet × corresponding multiplier according to the paytable.
SCATTER win = total bet × corresponding multiplier according to the paytable.
If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up. If 2 winning combinations occur on the same line, you will be paid the value of the higher winning combination. Winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, and the symbols have to be consecutive along a payline. The SCATTER symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the SCATTER symbol can be found below.
The accumulating winnings and all payline wins are shown for each winning spin. In the case of large wins, a win pop-up opens displaying the total spin revenue.
The WILD symbol can stand for any other symbol (except the SCATTER and the BONUS symbol) to make the best possible winning combination.
There is also a separate payout for 2 or more WILD symbols on an active payline. This is paid out instead of the regular symbol win if the win amount from WILD symbols is larger than the win from the regular symbols (by WILD standing in).
The SCATTER symbols do not have to occur on any particular payline. If there are 3 or more SCATTER symbols in any position in the spin results, the payout earned is multiplied by the total bet and added to any payline winnings.
In addition, 3 or more SCATTER symbols in any position on the reels trigger 10 Free Games with EXTRA WILD and a random multiplier.
The BONUS symbol appears on reels #1, #3 and #5. Whenever BONUS symbols appear anywhere on these reels simultaneously, the Crime Scene Bonus round is triggered.
SHERLOCK MEETS WATSON FEATURE
This feature is available in both main game and Free Games.
Whenever the WATSON symbol appears to the immediate right of the SHERLOCK symbol, the Sherlock Meets Watson Feature is triggered and a prize is added to your current winnings.
CRIME SCENE BONUS
BONUS symbols appearing anywhere on reels #1, #3 and #5 simultaneously during main game or Free Games trigger the Crime Scene Bonus.
The screen that follows reveals a room where a crime has been committed. There are 8 highlighted items to pick from. Each item stands for a cash prize. Revealing the Collect option collects all revealed prizes and ends the bonus round.
At the end of the bonus game, a win screen displays your winnings. Game Win shows the winnings that were received from the main game spin that won the bonus. Feature Win shows the winnings that were received during the bonus. Total Win shows the accumulated winnings (Game Win and Feature Win added up).
The Crime Scene Bonus and the Free Games round cannot be triggered during one and the same main game spin. The Crime Scene Bonus cannot be triggered during the Free Games spin that re-triggers the Free Games round.
If the Crime Scene Bonus is triggered during Free Games, the Free Games are interrupted and the Bonus game is played. After the Crime Scene Bonus ends, the bonus cash prizes are added to your current winnings and the Free Games resume.
Whenever 3 or more SCATTER symbols appear anywhere on the reels during main game, 10 Free Games with the Pistol symbol as EXTRA WILD and a random multiplier are awarded.
EXTRA WILD can stand for all symbols except WILD, SCATTER and BONUS. Whenever at least 1 EXTRA WILD participates in a winning combination on an active payline, a random multiplier of x2, x3, or x5 is applied to the wins of that payline.
5-of-a-kind combination of EXTRA WILD is equal to 400 x line bet multiplied by the awarded multiplier.
3 or more SCATTER symbols anywhere on the reels during Free Games re-trigger the Free Games round.
The Free Games round and the Crime Scene Bonus cannot be triggered during one and the same main game spin. The Crime Scene Bonus cannot be triggered during the Free Games spin that re-triggers the Free Games round.
If the Crime Scene Bonus is triggered during Free Games, the Free Games will be interrupted in order for the Bonus round to be played. After the Crime Scene Bonus ends, the bonus cash prizes will be added to your current winnings and then the Free Games round will resume.
During the Free Games, the reels are spun automatically using the same number of lines and bet per line as on the spin that won the Free Games round.
