You may be surprised that this Sherlock of London slot review gets 4 stars, but we have good reasons, and it’s all down to those 5 different types of wilds.
Let’s be honest; Rabcat slot games tend to be pretty and fun, but they don’t tend to have huge massive wins like you might find in volatile slots such as Mercy of the Gods from NetEnt or Quickspin’s Prime Zone slot.
And, overall, this Sherlock of London mobile slot doesn’t break too much from that convention, with a paytable that pays well, but not outrageous amounts.
However, that’s a good thing. Because you get enough wilds here to get multiple wins on multiple paylines, and it’s good fun to watch.
This is a faithful re-creation of Sherlock and Watson set in Victorian London. The villains litter the reels, all ready to steal big prizes until the detective in the deerstalker hat walks into the room.
Quite literally in fact, because when you get two wild Sherlock symbols on these 5 reels, they will walk from one end to the other to connect, leaving behind a spread of wilds – much like how we write in the Wild Toro slot review.
However, unlike that game, this is not the only wild. A single wild will respin the reels, giving you extra wins and an extra chance to catch another wild. Two wilds side by side will also connect, but this time give you a 2x multiplier on any win.
When you get to the Sherlock of London slot free spins this game doesn’t slow down. Oh no. You’re on the hunt for all the biggest criminals and their loot, and now Watson will be indispensable in his help.
He turns into an extra wild symbol, and just when you thought they couldn’t add any more wilds, a single wild will now expand and cover the whole reel.
We wouldn’t stick to this chase for hours on end as you might on the Castle Builders 2 video slot, if you win anything close to 100x your bet, you should probably move on.
But it’s fun a thrilling chase. The game is afoot on this Sherlock of London online slot.

Wilds: The wild symbol is Sherlock and replaces all other symbols on the reels to create a win. But it does not replace the scatter.
If the wild lands on it's own on reels 1 and 2, then you get a respin of the reels to try and catch another wild. You get one or two bonus spins, but it stops if you get nothing, or a wilds land to create a connecting wild or a double wild.
Connecting Wild Symbol: If more than one wild symbol shows up on the reels, they will 'walk' and connect regardless of where they are.
Double Wild: If two wilds land side by side next to each other, they connect and give you a 2x multiplier.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 scatter symbols will trigger exactly 10 free spins. You still get connecting wilds and double wilds, but this time the single wild will simply create an expanding wild reel instead of bonus spins.
The Watson Symbol is also now an extra wild symbol. So lots of wilds.
Sherlock is at it again and Rabcat has done a great job of making this look beautiful, much like we write in the Robin of Sherwood slot review.
But unlike some of their past games, this is a lot of fun thanks to them adding every single wild you could possibly imagine.
It makes the base game fun because you have 3 different wild features and the free spins bonus adds a couple of extra just for the fun of it.
The wins aren't huge, not even as much as Elk Studios Respin Circus game out in the same week, but this Sherlock of London slot on mobile managed to grab our interest.
