Overview of Sherlock: A scandal in Bohemia slot

As the title suggests this slot has been inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character of the same name, Sherlock Holmes. Join Sherlock and his trusted side kick Dr Watson as they fight to save the reputation of the King of Bohemia by finding a damning photograph.
Designed by Tom Horn Gaming this slot plays out over 5-reel and 25 fixed pay lines. The reels hold 3-symbols and the slot will provide you with excellent features which include two separate bonus games, free spins and scatters.

Scenario and Graphics

This slot recreates a scene from the famous Sherlock Holmes book, namely A scandal in Bohemia. In this story Sherlock has been deployed to assist the King of Bohemia. As you would expect Sherlock reigns supreme however you get to join him on the adventure that unfolds in this new and exciting slot from Tom Horn Gaming.
The graphics in this slot are superb and include Steampunk stylish designs. You can expect to come across the main characters of Sherlock, Dr Watson and Irene Adler, coupled with notebooks, bags full of coins and various other symbols. The usual Royal symbols also feature along the way.

Wagers & Winnings

When it comes to placing your bet, you need to keep in mind that the pay lines are fixed at 25 and this cannot be changed. The only choice you have is the amount you bet on each line, the minimum wager stands at $0.25 and there is also the opportunity to bet a lot higher if you so wish.
Currently, as this is such a new slot, I cannot provide the pay outs that are on offer however the return to player is decent standing between 96% and 97% therefore you can feel optimistic when playing. With the various features, bonuses and free spins the pay outs should be far beyond average.

Game Capabilities

In Sherlock: A scandal in Bohemia the main feature comes in the form of the scatter symbols rather than the wilds which is what you would expect. There are three scatters in this slot with two being represented by the characters of Sherlock and Doctor Watson. The Newspaper Bonus is the first feature and you need to land three of the same symbols to activate and once activated you are then presented with a character who is holding a newspaper perusing different locations that have blank areas and question marks. Your job is to pick areas to uncover a cash prize. All the time you land cash awards the feature continues, and it stops when you uncover the photo.

The next feature bonus game sees you strolling through a park, with the aim of avoiding any photographers. Come face to face with the paparazzi and the feature ends.
The final feature provides you with free spins. In this feature the third scatter which is represented by a padlock comes into play. Land three padlock scatters anywhere on your game screen and you will be rewarded with 10 free spins.
Although it is not obvious there is a wild which is depicted by another of the major characters, Irene Adler. Irene can substitute for all the base symbols to provide you with more wins. Irene appears frequently to assist you to create winning combinations that are on average smaller values but do come along often.


Sherlock: A scandal in Bohemia is a superb slot, not only is it visually stunning but it also offers some excellent features. I loved playing this game, everything about the slot is easy and I landed several wins. I would urge anyone to give this slot a spin, as I know that they will not be disappointed.
