Sherlock and the Mystic Compass Slots

Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill's latest Netflix adaption of the classic detective series has regenerated some interest in Sherlock Holmes lately, so there's really no better time to come out with a Sherlock Holmes inspired slot! He's probably the most famous detective around, and Sherlock and The Mystery Compass is an incredible game! Instead of solving a murder, you'll be solving the mystery of unlocking free spins, and multipliers. This slot is mobile phone compatible, and available to play in demo mode. With demo mode, you won't need to bet any real money until you're fully ready.


This game very much embodies every cliche about Sherlock Holmes you could want. It's laid out against a brick paved Victorian street, with tall buildings and gentle lights. All of the symbols within the board cater to your classic Sherlock Holmes experience, with symbols like gloves, Sherlock's smoking pipe, and a bulldog, and of course they also have the low paying symbols. Holmes himself can be found within the game grid, looking very iconic as usual. This slot is from the folks at Nucleus Gaming, who always publish modern and innovative games, and I expected this game would be no different. This game is played on thirty pay lines and five reels. The minimum wager for this game is 0.30 per spin, while the maximum wager is 120.00 per spin. You land winning combinations starting from the left. The graphics of the slot are well stylized, they're cartoonish without being out of date. They aren't obsessively gritty or realistic either.

The highest paying symbol is Sherlock himself, who awards 500x your bet if you land five of him on one spin. The second highest paying is his dog, who pays out 250x your bet and the third most valuable symbol is the binoculars, which pay 180x your bet. The mechanics of the game are nicely crafted. There are four available jackpots, all of which are displayed to the right of the game grid. There is a mini jackpot, a minor jackpot, a major jackpot and a mega jackpot. All of your buttons for spinning, auto spinning and adjusting your bet are available via the control panel located at the bottom of the board.

Special Features

The magnifying class is a key tool used to solve mysteries back when Sherlock Holmes as a series was created, and so it's fitting the magnifying glass operates as the wild symbol, helping to land extra wins and act as other wins. It cannot substitute for the compass scatter symbol, but can substitute for any other regular symbol. If you land the compass scatter symbol, you'll trigger free spins when five or more of these symbols are triggered after one spin! You can land 10 free spins, but if you land five or more scatters, you'll receive a multiplier as well depending on how many scatter symbols you landed. If you landed five, you can claim a 1x multiplier, if you land six you can claim a 2x multiplier and if you land seven you can land a 3x multiplier. on each spin. Any win on the first spin comes with a 2x multiplier depending on the number of triggering spins. The final spin can award you a multiplier of 10x, 20x, or 30x your bet. The only catch is you cannot retrigger free games.

I wanted to also make special note of the fact the four jackpots available are also progressive jackpots, so the amount each jackpot is worth will continuously grow. To win the jackpots, you'll randomly activate a jackpot wheel and you'll collect a corresponding jackpot depending on what the outcome of your wheel spin is!
