The new Shamrock Holmes Megaways online slot was developed by All41 Studios exclusively for Microgaming, and it’s officially set to arrive at more than half of our reviewed UK online casinos tomorrow, Tuesday, January 5th. This new Sherlock Holmes/Leprechaun-themed online slot has 6 regular reels and one horizontal reel that sits just above the main reel set, and with each spin that you take, there can be up to as many as 117,649 different ways to win per spin.
Low rollers can take one spin of the reels from as little as £0.20, and the maximum cost per spin is capped at £20.00. On any lucky spin, it’s possible to win up to 28,000x times your total stake, and some of the most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols. The Wild Symbol can only ever land on the horizontal reel, and it will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbol.
One of the features that you can look forward to is the Magic Forest Respins feature, which triggers when a certain combination of Scatter Symbols land on the reels on the same spin. You will then be given one free respin with a guaranteed number of active Megaways. For example, your respin will come with 10,000 guaranteed Megaways if 3 Scatter Symbols landed on the main reel set + 1 Pixie Scatter Symbol in the horizontal reel. You’ll receive a guaranteed 32,400 Megaways if 3 Scatter Symbols + the Shamrock Holmes Scatter Symbol lands in the horizontal reel, or a maximum of 117,949 Megaways if 3 Scatter Symbols + the Shamrock Holmes Scatter Symbol + the Pixie land in the horizontal reel.
The game also comes with the Rolling Reels game mechanic, which kicks into action after each new winning combo forms. Winning symbols are instantly removed from the reels, which will cause even more new symbols to drop down from above and fill the empty positions. The same process will keep on repeating until there are no more new winning combos in view.
The most exciting thing about this game is the Free Spins Bonus, which will instantly trigger when 4 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin. You will initially receive 10 Free Spins, and the good news is that both the Rolling Reels game mechanic AND UNLIMITED WIN MULTIPLIER is active throughout the bonus. Additional Free Spins can also be retriggered during the bonus each time at least one Scatter Symbol lands anywhere on the reels at any point during the bonus.
While you’re waiting for the new Shamrock Holmes Megaways slot to arrive at any of our reviewed UK online casinos, some of the other similar slots that I can recommend keeping an eye out for in the meantime are Wish Upon a Leprechaun Megaways, Irish Riches Megaways, and Slots O’ Gold Megaways. Don’t forget, Shamrock Holmes Megaways will be available to play from tomorrow.
