Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood Slot

Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood Slot Preview

If you’ve always fancied yourself as a bit of a sleuth then here’s the perfect opportunity to show your skills as you link up with Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as they pursue the slippery Lord Blackwood. This IGT slot game is based on Guy Ritchie’s 2009 movie with Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock and Jude Law as Watson. Proceedings are dark and full of suspense as you navigate your way towards the cash prizes on offer. There are, by our reckoning, five bonus rounds and special features in total in this Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood slot game, and you know what that means. Lots of lovely pay-outs to spin for.

About Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood Slot Game

You don’t need great detective skills to figure out that the action unfolds in Sherlock’s study at 221B Baker Street as he and Watson plot how to bring down Blackwood. There are five reels and 30 paylines to work with, and there’s as much suspense on this gameboard as there is in your average crime thriller. IGT has done away with the playing card symbols and instead focuses on items we associate with a Sherlock Holmes story. These pay out in the following denominations:

Symbol3x Payout4x Payout5x Payout
Smoking Pipe51030
Magnifying Glass51030
Inspector Lestrade102575
Irene Adler102575
Dr Watson2050100

Finally, there’s the Sherlock Holmes game logo, which pays out 50, 150 and 500 coins for matching three through to five respectively.

Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood Slot Features, Specials and Symbols

As mentioned, there’s a stack of special features to be triggered in the Sherlock Holmes: Hunt for Blackwood 3D slot machine, and so we’ll start with the most straightforward. The Mystery Multiplier feature is, simply, a multiplier of up to ten times that appears at random during the main game. You can’t say fairer than that. Then we have the Teamwork feature. On any given payline, when Watson and Holmes appear alongside each other they can merge into a combined symbol of some detective power. These pay up to 300 coins for a full set of five.

The game features a bonus icon, which appears periodically. Land three of these on reels one, three and five to trigger the Picker Puzzle feature. Here you have five picks and can select items from Holmes’ office, which reveal cash prizes or trigger further bonuses. The Cash Award prize earns players multipliers and extra picks, while three Scrolls earn ten spins in the Hunt Bonus and four pays 15. Three or more of the Wheel sign triggers the Blackwood Wheel feature. The Hunt Bonus is essentially a free spins round played on a map-based reel set, with locked wilds and bonus doublers available. The Blackwood Wheel feature is your standard ‘wheel of fortune’ style game, and contains lots of fantastic cash prizes and some of the best slot bonuses.

The Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood slot machine offers plenty to hold your attention as you play, deerstalker and pipe not required!
