The first thing we can establish about the Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot game is that the BBC’s latest iteration of Sherlock Holmes is not featured. Seriously, can you imagine how much the likenesses of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman would cost to license right about now? And the BBC sure doesn’t give up their properties to online casino software creators easily; I mena, who else has been waiting a lifetime for the Doctor Who slots game?
So no hip 21st-century Sherlock, not even the dynamic cyberpunk duo of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law star in Holmes and the Stolen Stones. Instead, in this slot we get Holmes and Watson looking like 19th-century big ‘n’ beefy bad asses with well-trimmed facial hair; they're the highest-paying symbols in the set, with a magnifying glass, a book and card-suit symbols also in play.
This slots game cost 1¢ to $2 per payline, and 20 paylines may be played.
The big draw of the Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot is packed with opportunities to win free spins and pays out some seriously large jackpots.
The FREE SPINS symbol is essentially a scatter: This one awards free spins when three appear on a spin. Ten free games are always awarded, but landing four also wins the player 1,000 coins; five FREE SPINS symbols is worth a fantastic 10,000 coins – nice bonus payout there.
Things get even better with the bonus symbol: This one also depicts a keyhole as the FREE SPINS symbol does, but naturally the bonus symbol is labelled BONUS. The bonus symbol works just like the scatter in launching 3, 4 or 5 spins (plus the coin bonus listed above for four or five bonus symbols), but here’s where things get, as Holmes might say, “fascinating, Watson.”
Several pieces of diamond shards will accompany each bonus free spin. These are of five different colors (red, green, blue, yellow and pink). When five of any one color are collected, a personal progressive jackpot of anywhere from under $100 to five figures may be won. Jolly good.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones is produced and distributed by Yggdrasil Gaming, as yet a relatively small-scale casino software creator (but as of 2016 growing steadily; they’re building quite a catalog of casio games).
