Sherlock Bones Introduction 

Sherlock Bones is a slot with a simple yet incredibly effective pitch - what if Sherlock Holmes was a dog? Electric Elephant imagines a world inhabited by all manner of animal characters, as faithful companion Watson is also a pooch, while the villainous Moriarty is a rather malevolent looking cat. And that is not all in this rather clever game, whose chief feature is something the developer calls Rolling Respins. You will notice that while the game is a 5-reel number, there is space for another, horizontal reel set beneath the slot. This unlocks and spins whenever you land a Sherlock Bones anywhere on the reels. If a bone lands on the bonus reel underneath the reel housing the wild then the wild will expand downwards and lock in place before triggering the Rolling Respins, which give you respins until you get a win. After each win during this feature all sticky wilds will walk one reel to the left before a new row is added on top of the reels, adding to the number of paylines! Now let us put our thinking caps and examine Sherlock Bones further as we find out what truly makes this slot tick! 

Sherlock Bones Game Features 

Sherlock Bones is a 5-reel, 3-row slot that starts off with 243 paylines, formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. Forming these paylines is a selection of 7 paylines. Cat Moriarty and dog Watson are the high pays, while the pawprint, magnifying lens and pipe are the mid pays. Closing the symbols off are the low pays, the A and K. The final symbol on the reels is the protagonist, Sherlock Bones himself. He is the wild, and as such he can substitute for all symbols on the reels. He is also key in the Rolling Respins feature, which we will detail below. 

Sherlock Bones Free Spins and Bonuses

Electric Elephant replaces the traditional free spins feature in this game with the Rolling Respins. Land a wild anywhere on the reels and it will activate the special horizontal reel underneath the slot. If a bone symbol lands on the special reel underneath the wild, then the wild will expand downwards and stick in place on the reels to kick off the Rolling Respins. Here the reels respin until you get a win. After each win any sticky wilds will move to the next reel on the left. Wins also add one more row to the slot, up to a maximum of 4. This also increases the number of paylines on offer, which starts at 243 and can reach up to 16,807. More sticky wilds can be added to the Rolling Respin feature if you land a wild and a bone lands underneath it on the special reel. The feature continues until all sticky wilds walk off the reels and, in case you land a wild and it does not get a bon on the special reel then it will expand upwards but not stick to the reel, thus not awarding you with the Rolling Respins feature. 

Sherlock Bones Payouts 

Moriarty brings the biggest payout at up to 10x the stake for a full payline. Watson follows with up to 6x, while the pawprint, magnifying glass and pipe are respectively worth up to 4x, 2x and 1.5x the bet. The A and K can both earn you up to 1x the bet. 

Sherlock Bones Graphics and Sound 

The Sherlock Bones slot is set in front of an atmospheric image of an industrial 19th century London, one complete with smoking chimneys and fog rolling over the landscape. The slot itself has transparent reels, the better to allow you to check out the cityscape. The reels are decorated with steampunk-style grears, and you can spot more gears whirring along in the space housing the bonus reel which comes to life during the Rolling Respins feature. As for the symbols on the reels these are lovingly designs and come to animated life whenever they make part of a payline

Sherlock Bones Conclusion 

The subject matter alone was near enough to make Sherlock Bones a winning combination, but Electric Elephant adds an extra draw to proceedings with its Rolling Reels feature. This is when the slot truly comes to life, as this increases the winning potential through both sticky wilds and additional rows! Check out Sherlock Bones here at Videoslots Casino today!
