NOTE: Sorry to say that this game is now out of commission. Try the awesome Super Monopoly Money slot instead with huge bonus features.
The second of the IGT Cluedo slot games, this ‘classic‘ version has what was missing from the first: better graphics, sounds and free spins. Shame about the dead spins.
We are big fans of the original detective board game, so were more than happy to expect and review Cluedo Classic mobile slot. Much like the recent IGT slot releases, we were expecting several things:
All of which we are happy to say we found.
Add a wild multiplier that doubles your win and a 10,000x your line bet win and you’d think we would have nothing to complain about, right?
To be honest, we found this little murderous slot for mobile a little on the boring side. This Cluedo Classic slot machine hides some big wins, don’t get us wrong, with the variance on set as a fairly balance mid volatility. But the return to player rate is fairly low and you can certainly feel it sometimes. We went through 500 spins without once hitting the free spin bonus feature. Another time we hit the free spins twice in under 100 spins.
Basically, you can’t depend on the free spin bonus feature to keep you entertained. It’s there, and when it comes, it can hide some impressive jackpot wins with the 3x multiplier over 15 free rounds. But we’ve also only walked away with 12x our bet. Which when it does feels like an incredible waste of time after all that waiting.
Equally the music, so charming when it first loads, soon starts to get on your nerves.
If you hit a five of a kind win in the first 50 spins, chances are, you’ll be hooked on this game forever. Add a wild that multiplies your win by two and you’ll never put down this Cluedo Classic slot on mobile again.
However, that didn’t happen to us, with a huge amount of dead spins leading us nowhere. We increased our bet significantly and found that this did improve the results, so we would recommend this mobile slot for big gamblers looking for those big jackpot slot wins.
Otherwise we would recommend the far more generous and fun Siberian Storm or, if board games float your boat, Monopoly Dream Life mobile slot. Neither of which look as pretty as this classic Cluedo slot game, but are far more entertaining slots for you to play in our books.

Wilds: The Cluedo Classic logo is the wild substitute and comes with a refreshingly wonderful 2x multiplier on every win its used. It replaces all symbols except scatter.
Scatter & Free Spins: The Mystery Bonus symbol is the scatter and three or more will trigger 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. These can be very generous, or not at all, but it's here that you'll find the really big wins. You can retrigger the free spins up to an impressive 180 in total, but we've only every managed to do it once.
Cluedo Classic slot game could have been far more fun than it ended up being. It's a game about murder and intrigue! With the nefarious characters from your childhood all making wonderfully cameos in the shape of Colonel Mustard, Mrs White, Reverend Green and the rest.
But, with a free spin bonus feature that's hard to catch, we ended up being only mildly amused. Still the multiplying wilds on the screen helped alleviate the boredom and you can't deny that there are some big wins hiding in these 5 reels if you are willing to track down the murderer.
This is a video slot that is only fun if you win quickly.
