Holmes and the Stolen stones is an online slot game inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective character, Sherlock Holmes. Graphically it takes a more original approach to the look of the characters, with both Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson looking a lot younger and more buff than they have been portrayed in films and books.
Holmes and the Stolen stones has a 5 reel layout with three rows. This layout features 20 pay lines that can be made active with wagers between 0.20 and 40. There is a 10000x your wager standard jackpot on offer as well as a progressive jackpot that can be won. There is a theoretical Return To Player of 96.80%.
The bonus games in this online slot include a free spin bonus round that can be activated two separate ways as well as a pick-me style bonus game that awards cash prizes as well as a chance to trigger the biggest progressive pay out in the game.
Holmes And The Pick-me Bonus Game
The first bonus game in Holmes and the Stolen stones involves you helping the famous detective to locate the missing stones in warehouse crates. To take part in this game, you must land three or more of the blue keyhole scatter symbols anywhere in view.
You will instantly be taken to a new screen set in a warehouse. Clicking on each of the crates will either reveal a cash prize or a diamond gem. The diamond gems will be added to the gem meter above the reels.
If you fill up this gem meter, you will be awarded a progressive jackpot pay out. Once you click on a box that contains an explosive rather than a prize, the feature will end.
Holmes And The Progressive Jackpot
Holmes and the Stolen stones features 5 progressive jackpot payouts. Each one is awarded when you complete the corresponding Gem meter at the top of the reels. The base progressive pay outs are 40 for the blue gem, 250 for the red gem, 2500 for the yellow, 3500 for the green gem and 45 000 for the red gem.
Holmes And The Free Spins Feature
Holmes and the Stolen stones has a free spins round that can be activated 2 ways. Firstly you can land 3 of the free spin scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Depending on how many scatters land in view, you can get one of 3 prizes. 3 scatter symbols will award you 10 free spins.
4 scatter symbols will award 10 free spins, plus a 1000 coin pay out. 5 scatter symbols will give you 10 free spins as well as the 10 000 coin jackpot pay out. During the Holmes and the Stolen stones free spins game, a 3x multiplier is active.
