The board-game we all know and love gets a modern revamp in this Cluedo Spinning Detectives slot game.
Depending on where you find this game, you might find it either as Cluedo or as Clue Spinning detective.
For some reason Europe gets Cluedo, the rest of the world know this game as the Clue slot machine. Either way, if it’s part of the Scientific Games group, and a Bally tech slot, you’re on the right track.
You’ll instantly know it because it has a very unique look and layout.
First of all, it uses real actors in place of the usual Mrs Peacock, Colonel Mustard, and the usual suspects. It make the whole thing feel fresh and new.
And if that wasn’t a big give away, you’ve got 5 spinning reels on the left of your standard 5×4 reels, all with names of the usual killing rooms that you’d find in any Cluedo game.
The conservatory, the billiard room, the library, the kitchen, and the dinning room. The order is important, as the most lucrative killing always happens in the dinning room.
Those rooms are the key to what makes this Cluedo Spinning Detective mobile slot game such a success.
Because one symbol is all you need to find the reels to ‘active’ each of those room – or, to make it simpler, get one spin.
Each room has a special feature, which we write about more in the section below. For example, in the library you’ll get up to 2 wild reels, whilst the conservatory has higher paying top symbols.
More importantly, each has an in-game bonus ranging from 10x to 500x your bet, a little like in the Fortune 5 jackpot slot. Better yet, getting into those room is easy.
Frustratingly easy in fact, especially if you want to use auto-play as within 10 spins you’ve hit a feature, and this function stops. But then again, with 10-20 spins you get a chance at some great wins.
The free spins are an extension of the rooms idea; namely you start in the conservatory and if you get the right symbol you progress through the rooms, each with a more lucrative feature.
We’ve rarely walked away with less than 40x our bet in the free spins, sometimes more.
The main problem with this Cluedo Spinning Detective slot by Bally is that it makes a mockery of your base game spin.
Every time you don’t enter one of the bonus features, feels like a wasted spin as you know you won’t win much more than 1x to 5x your bet.
And unfortunately, getting into the rooms doesn’t guarantee big wins.
Still, as Hasbro games go, this still holds plenty of charm, though it doesn’t quite manage to be as good as our favourite Super Monopoly Money slot.

Wild Symbol: The Clue slot logo is the wild and replaces all other symbols on the reel, especial special bonus symbols. It also comes stacked.
1 re-spin + room features: on the reels, you'll find special symbols representing each of the rooms: the conservatory, the billiard room, the library, the kitchen, and the dining room. One symbol is all you need to trigger one free spins where:
Each room also has symbols with little magnifying glasses. Get five of these to trigger the jackpots.
Free Spin Bonus: Get 3 scattered Mansion symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the main set of this Cluedo slot game, and you'll trigger 7 starting free spins.
We say starting because you'll start spinning in the conservatory reels, but if you get an envelope symbol you then get an extra free spin and then jump either one (ie. Billiard) or two rooms (ie. Library).
Of course, the quicker you get to the dinning room, the better the prizes to be had.
Spinning Detective slot pick me bonus: This is a simple pick me bonus which they've complicated by having lots of options.
Basically, you get to pick 7 cards which reveal either cash prizes or multipliers, and you tend to walk away with about 10x to 20x your bet.
However, on very rare occasions, you can win big by:
These are not easy to find by any means.
We have to admit to enjoying this Cluedo slot for mobile, even though these spinning detectives can send you round in circles, before you realise that your balance isn't moving in the right direction.
That's because whilst the action is fast, all the wins come from the free spins, which require a real detective to track them down.
That said, with frequent re-spins, and the chance to win 5 in-game jackpots fairly often, you'll soon find yourself enjoying spending time with the usual suspects.
If you like big bet games, it's also worth checking out Monopoly Big Event slot by the same provider.
