Sherlock and Moriarty Wowpot Slots
This game has five reels and twenty pay lines. Above the reels are numerous jackpots - one being the huge Wowpot jackpot, along with a major jackpot, a minor jackpot, and a mini jackpot. The grid is played against the stone-paved streets of old London, with old-fashioned buildings that help serve as a time portal for players. The Wowpot Jackpot itself is worth so much it's easy to overlook the major jackpot, which still pays out a luxurious amount!
With jackpot games, your bet range will matter more than usual. The chances of triggering the jackpot depending on the size of your bet. That being said, the larger your bet, the better the jackpot. While you still can win the Wowpot with a smaller stake, high rollers will have a better chance. You can bet anywhere from 10 p/c to 100 per spin. The RTP for this game is 92.1% and the volatility is medium. The hit frequency for this slot is 27% so it's an active enough game to keep a player occupied. Like most games, there are lower symbols and higher-paying symbols. The lower symbols are the usual suspects - J, A, K and Q pay out small prizes, while the character symbols will reward the higher pays. The character symbols help with the Sherlock theme embodied by this game. These symbols are bobby, Mrs. Hudson, Watson, and Holmes himself, and these characters pay out 6x to 10x the stake for a match of five. There is a wild symbol associated with this game, just as valuable as Mr. Holmes himself, but also can serve to substitute for other symbols to complete a win.
While these features are all fine and dandy, it's no secret the Wowpot is the highlight of this game. To trigger the jackpot, you need to collect magnifying glass progressive tokens. These symbols appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the base game. These symbols will be accumulated and tallied using the bar at the top of the screen. You might just trigger a spin of the jackpot wheel as well, which will award one of the four jackpots. This means you can win anywhere from 10 EUR to 2,000,000 EUR! These slots are also progressive, so keep in mind the figures I named are just base rates.
Now, the mystery symbol is the golden question mark, and if you land four or fewer of these mystery symbols, all of them will turn into the same regular pay symbol. If five or more mystery symbols land instead, you'll trigger the Mystery Respins. During this feature, the wilds will lock in place and all other positions around them will respin, landing either more mystery symbols or wilds, which will turn sticky and award yet another respin. Once you land no more special symbols, the round will finally end and all of the mystery symbols will turn into one pay symbol.
Moriarty is the scatter and three of him will give out 10 free spins during the base game. If you trigger any more than three, you'll receive two more free spins per scatter symbol. When this occurs, a new triple question marked feature symbol will appear on the board, and trigger a special feature. It'll trigger either, sticky wilds, a +1 multiplier, or additional free spins.
