Play Sherlock Holmes The Hunt for Blackwood online: Check out our slot review below

Sherlock Holmes is the legendary detective of all times and is considered to be the most cited and portrayed character in history. Holmes is an eccentric character who is known for his accuracy when it comes to proficiency with observation, forensic science and logical reasoning when investigating cases for his long list of clients which also included Scotland Yard. 

IGT have made a state of the art job by basing the Sherlock Holmes Hunt for Blackwood video slot on the 2009 blockbuster Sherlock Holmes. The Sherlock Holmes online game is on 5 reels with 30 pay lines.  

Holmes's popularity and fame are such that many have believed him to be not a fictional character but a real individual;


The Mystery Multiplier feature can activate after any base game spin, which does not also trigger a bonus. A multiplier from 2x to 10x will apply to that spin. 


The Teamwork feature is one which triggers randomly after any base game spin. In this feature, the Holmes and Watson symbols are combined to Holmes/Watson symbol, thus becoming one symbol and this automatically increases your winning potential. 

If you’re in a lucky mode, you can trigger two features at the same time; Mystery Multiplier feature and Teamwork Feature, resulting in bigger wins for you. 


In the Picker Puzzle Feature you will get 3 scatter symbols appearing anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 4 at the same time. This will trigger the Picker Puzzle Feature. Once you trigger the feature, you have 5 picks where you have to select objects from Sherlock’s room to reveal clues that can lead to cash awards and to one of the two bonuses. 

If you collect 1 cash clue you can win 2x triggering bet amount, 2 cash clues for 5x the bet, or 3 cash clues for 10x the bet. Cash clues displaying +1 also award an additional pick.

In the Hunt Bonus, if you collect 3 map clues, you win up to 10 free spins, or 4 to win 15 free spins.  

If you collect 3 wheel clues it means that you trigger the Blackwood Wheel Bonus. If you collect 4 wheel clues you earn a richer initial wheel. 

Once all the picks are complete, the awarded bonus begins. 


Spin the wheel in the Blackwood Wheel Bonus while collecting prizes at the same time. The wheel in the Blackwood Wheel bonus may contain prize values, these being Blackwood wedges and Sherlock wedges.  

The wheel changes twice, after the 4th and 8th spin, to offer higher prizes, the Sherlock wedges and Blackwood wedges. The Sherlock prize values increases when the wheel changes.  

A bonus earned with 4 wheel clues in the Picker Puzzle has a richer initial wheel which also includes a Sherlock wedge. 

You can also earn the Bonus Doubler and this occurs when at least one pointer is active at the completion of 10 spins, the total bonus win, including any win from the initiating Picker Puzzle, is doubled and the bonus ends. 


The Hunt Bonus is one where with your guidance, Holmes and Watson can locate the 5 scenes of Blackwood’s crimes. 

Locked Wilds

Here, 5 locations are circled on the reel map, marking the scenes of Blackwood’s crimes. If a Holmes or Watson symbol lands on any of these locations, that symbol becomes a Locked Wild and stays locked in that location for the remaining free spins. 

Bonus Doubler 

When Holmes and Watson lock on all 5 crime scene locations, the total bonus win at the end of the spins, including any win from the initiating Picker Puzzle, is doubled. 

Holmes and Watson symbols are Wild and substitute for all other symbols.
