Here’s another title from Yggdrasil gaming with an interesting theme. Based on the legendary fictional detective Sherlock Holmes this slot dives into the theme of mystery and adventure, always an exciting choice. Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot is made up of 5 reels, and 20 fixed pay lines, but gets its character from the symbols and the story it tells. A wide range of coin denominations compensates for the fixed pay lines. This game has free spins and a themed bonus game that can reap some very tidy prizes. Sounds like another good title from Yggdrasil gaming.
The Mystery Theme and Quality Graphics
Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot is done up really nicely in that it exploits most of its aspects to accentuate the theme and the interactive mystery adventure. The sound effects definitely make the experience more visceral with sound that pours light and direction toward the theme and the reels. The Mystery that the slot is particularly focused on is one of stolen Diamonds and as per usual Sherlock must solve the case. The bonus games actively involve this theme which really completes the atmospheric experience.
The reels are adorned with some related content and are well designed and animated. There is a magnifying glass, a thief and of course Sherlock himself. There are also some well themed playing card symbols that in this slot it appears the criminals are using as code.
Betting with a fixed set of pay lines shifts all the focus onto the coin denomination available and this Yggdrasil gaming slot has an expectantly high range. Coins range from 0.2 to 2 so total bets start at 4 and go up to 40.
The Bonus Symbols and Bonus Pick’em Game
