Playtech is a leading online casino software provider which has produced a stunning range of online video slots. One of their most recent ones is called Sherlock Mystery and this was launched towards the end of May 2014. However, it has only really just started to appear in a growing number of Playtech powered casinos throughout June.

Sherlock Mystery has a Sherlock Holmes/Murder Mystery/Whodunit theme with 5 reels and 20 winning paylines and it can be launched from within Playtech’s award winning download client or over their instant flash casino platform. At the time of writing this new slot is NOT yet available on mobile.

There are some great special features on this slot and also an entertaining second screen bonus round to take part in. The Dark Shadowy Figure is the Wild Symbol and this special symbol can substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols or the Bonus Symbols. The Scatter Symbol is the 221b Baker Street Sign and the Bonus Symbol is the Detective’s Magnifying Glass.

A massive 10,000 coin prize will instantly be added to your balance if you are lucky enough for 5 Wild Symbols to land across any of the active paylines. You will also receive 3X times your total bet when Sherlock ‘meets’ Watson on his immediate right (anywhere on the reels). When three or more Scatter Symbols show up in any position across the reels, a Free Spins Bonus Round will activate.

Players will initially be awarded 10 Free Spins, which can also be retriggered, plus you will also be given an Extra Wild Symbol with Random Multiplier to help boost your prizes even further (wins can be multiplied by up to 5X). The other exciting thing to look forward to on this slot is the Crime Scene Bonus and this will only ever trigger when the Bonus Symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5.

Once triggered, you will immediately be transported away from the reels and taken to a crime scene. There will be 8 objects for you to choose from and you can keep on making picks to reveal cash prizes until you reveal the word ‘collect’. This is a great new slot from Playtech and it should instantly appeal to most players.

You can play on this slot either in the free play mode or in the real cash mode and it can now be found in several top Playtech casinos such as Paddy Power Casino and Betfair Casino. It should also start appearing in more Playtech casinos such as Omni Casino, Fly Casino and Mansion Casino over the coming weeks.
