Sherlock Holmes is here to solve the case in the IGT slot machine which has images and other elements from the 2009 movie. With Robert Downey Jr. as the famous detective, the slot is very fun to play and there are also several features to look out for in order to get bigger wins. For starters, Sherlock and Holmes can team up to form just one symbol and there are also free spins.
The IGT slot machine Sherlock Holmes – The Hunt for Blackwood is heavily based on the 2009 movie starring Robert Downey Jr. in the main role as the famous detective. There are various elements taken from the film and they make the game that much more exciting for fans. For the reels, the five rollers show three rows and there are 30 lines active at all times, along with a bigger bet for having the special features available. The Mystery Multiplier feature can award a random multiplier of up to 10x to the current win. Also, on any spin during the base game, all symbols showing Holmes and Watson can transform and create Holmes and Watson symbols which show the two characters in the same image for more symbols on the screen. Three bonus symbols appearing anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger the Picker Puzzle. This is where the player must select from the objects in Sherlock’s room in order to reveal cash prizes or clues leading to a bigger bonus. Five picks are awarded at the start and it is possible to trigger The Hunt Bonus or the Wheel Bonus by collecting the right symbols. For the wheel bonus, there are three pointers and when one lands on the Blackwood edge, it will deactivate the pointer, while landing on Sherlock will reactivate all pointers. The Hunt Bonus awards 10 or 15 free spins with locked wilds which will offer wild symbols for any Holmes or Watson symbols appearing in the marked locations on the map, locking them in place for the remaining free spins. If all the five crime scenes are locked, the bonus will be doubled. In addition to the regular symbols of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the game also shows Irene Adler, Lord Blackwood and five images of items from the movie, like a dog, a violin, a pocket watch, a magnifying glass and a pipe.
