Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot is a five reel and three row online slot game with twenty pay lines. The online slot was developed by Yggdrasil Gaming and is a game that features five progressive jackpots, a pick em style bonus game, free spins and more.
The theme of this online slot game is loosely based on the well-known super sleuth Sherlock Holmes who was created by Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot is playable for real money on both desktop and mobile platforms. The bets start from a minimum of 0.20 with the maximum bet being 40.00 for every spin as all twenty pay lines are fixed throughout the game. Coin sizes range from 0.01 to 2.00.
How the Five Progressive Jackpots Work
Each of the five progressive online slots jackpots starts at a different amount and increases as the online slot game progresses. They are each represented by a diamond of a specific colour and it takes collecting five diamonds to win the corresponding progressive jackpot.
As the diamond shards are collected during the main game and any of the bonus features they are accumulated and stored in the relevant boxes situated above the Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot reels.
The Top Paying Symbol Combinations
Sherlock Holmes is the highest valued regular symbol paying out up to 4 000 coins for five on a pay line. If he appears three or four times he pays out up to 70 coins or 250 coins. Dr Watson is the second highest regular symbol paying out up to 2 000 coins. Additional themed symbols include a bound book and a magnifying glass. The standard playing card suits are also present and are ornately decorated with diamonds.
There are no wild symbols on the Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot reels but there are two bonus symbols that each trigger a specific bonus game feature. These are the golden keyhole scatter symbols and the blue keyhole bonus symbols. Both of these symbols pay out the top fixed jackpot prize of 10 000 coins when appearing five times on a pay line.
Golden Keyhole Free Spins Bonus
The Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot free spins bonus can be triggered in two different ways. Either a minimum of three golden keyhole scatter symbols must appear on one spin or five matching diamond shards must be collected on one box above the five reels.
Regardless of how the feature is triggered ten free spins are given with a 3x multiplier on all wins. Diamond shards may also be collected during this feature.
The Blue Keyhole Bonus Feature
A minimum of three of the blue keyhole bonus symbols trigger the pick em style bonus game. When this occurs the screen shows a warehouse filled with boxes of which any number can be picked until a box uncovers a smoke bomb and ends the bonus feature.
The rewards hidden within the boxes include various cash prizes and diamond shards. The diamond shards that are awarded are transferred to the main game once the bonus feature comes to an end.
