For slot players that love an adventure then 221B Baker Street could be the perfect location for you to visit. This slot has been developed by Merkur Gaming and offers the player the chance to take a trip back to Victorian London. The theme of the game is all about criminality and players will get to interact with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character Sherlock Holmes. There is a brilliant soundtrack to complement the game’s already mysterious qualities. There are also some bonus features to enjoy and all the details of this game are below so that you can decide for yourself if this is worth your cash.
The game offers a classic 5 reel setup with a total of 20 paylines on offer. This is a pretty standard setup from a Merkur game and there are plenty of winning combinations to be had. The game will suit both new and experienced players and you there is also a free-play mode available for those looking to play before they pay. Bets range from 1p up to £200 so the modest budgeters, as well as the high-rollers, can enjoy this game in its entirety.
In terms of design, we have a modern 3D animated video slot with plenty of graphical detail. It really looks fantastic with a dimly lit street forming the backdrop of the game. In front of that, you have the 5 reels and they mostly contain symbols relating to the theme of the game in some way. The lower value base game symbols are represented by letters in various colours with the higher-value ones all relating to the game in some way. You can expect to find objects such as a loaded revolver, a bottle of poison and a magnifying glass.
There are also some bonus features that help enhance the gameplay and the first thing to look out for is the Sherlock wild symbol. He is easy to spot and has a pipe in his mouth as you would expect. He substitutes for everything except the three scatters. The scatters are represented by Moriarty, Big Ben and the Duel symbol. They all offer different bonuses and perks for players that land them in specific combinations.
Free spins are available when you land three or more of the Big Ben symbols and players will receive a combination of free spins and multipliers for their efforts. There are up to 20 free spins and 5X multipliers on offer so the feature is well worth watching out for. Additionally, the Duel Bonus can trigger during this game also.
The Duel Bonus is the second main feature and is activated by the Duel scatter symbol and you have to land 3 of them for the feature to begin. You will be transported to a screen displaying Holmes and Moriarty and the aim of the game is to shoot the targets displayed. There are some nice random rewards on offer for your efforts and the game will end when there are no shots left.
