Are you ready to help Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson investigate another mystery? Well, now’s the time to don your deerstalker and get sleuthing in IGT’s Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood. A five-reel, 30-payline title based on the film incarnation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s iconic detective starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood features state-of-the-art graphics and sounds and a selection of great bonus features. With both free spins and a special prize wheel up for grabs via a bonus “picker” feature, the game is well and truly afoot. Theme
Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood allows players to join the titular detective and his loyal assistant Dr Watson as they traipse around Victorian England in search of the nefarious Blackwood. The game features both characters on its reels as special high-value icons that can combine to create big wins, while other unique symbols include violins, pocket watches, magnifying glasses and pipes. A bonus round transports players to Sherlock’s study, where they must select from a number of items to reveal cash prizes and further features, while the whole game is underscored by a selection of great sound effects and voice clips that really do give it an authentic detective-movie feel.
Triggered by landing special cog symbols on reels one, three and five, the “picker” feature is actually merely the gateway to two further bonuses in Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood. With this mini-game transporting players to Sherlock’s study, they must then select from a variety of items to reveal either cash prizes or bonus symbols, with three maps triggering The Hunt free spins and three wheels triggering the Blackwood Wheel bonus. As the name suggest, the first offers players 10 or 15 free spins on a new set of reels, with five Blackwood locations being marked. Should a Sherlock or Watson symbol land in one of these locations it will become a locked wild, while if all five sections of the board end up being “investigated”, players’ total winnings for the feature will be doubled. The Blackwood Wheel, meanwhile, contains a number of pointers that will award cash prizes each spin until they land on a Blackwood wedge. This will deactivate the pointer, with the feature ending when either no pointers remain or 10 spins have been played. Thankfully, landing on a Sherlock wedge will reactivate all dead pointers and allow you to continue playing on a more valuable wheel.
An incredibly simple slot to play, Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood merely requires players to choose a line bet amount from £0.01-£5.00 before each spin. This number is then multiplied by 60 to cover both the game’s 30 fixed paylines and its bonus features, resulting in a total cost per spin of £0.60-£300.00, with all payouts and bonus information being located under the paytable tab.
Featuring all the charm of the modern Sherlock series, Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt For Blackwood is an immersive game that offers plenty of payout potential thanks to its trio of bonus features. Both looking and sounding great, the slot delivers a highly entertaining package that will easily keep players glued to their screens as they help the dynamic detective duo solve another fiendish case.
