How To Play Sherlock Mobile Slot

Not Recommended: We've been asked to change our mFortune slot reviews to always have a positive spin by mFortune casino (who are owned by In Touch Games Limited). However, we write unbiased slot reviews and give you the pros and cons so you can decide the best games to play. As such we can no longer recommend and have blacklisted mFortune slots and casino as we will not be influenced when writing our personal opinions of casino games. We do recommend you check out Play'n GO slots instead which are available at a mix of great mobile casinos.

Can you uncover the mystery behind this mFortune Sherlock slot? Or will Moriarty and Irene Adler get the best of you?

The full name of this game is “Sherlock: Murdered to Death slot”. On a scale of 1 to 10 of seriousness, this falls under 0 for ‘in no way authentic and completely ridiculous’ rendition of the worlds most famous detective.

Sherlock himself looks a little mad, Moriarty has turned into a strange red eye-glowing Mr Hyde, and Mrs Hudson is the kind of matron who gives you boarding school nightmares.

The point is, we didn’t like the theme, and the music sounded like a Harpsichord being played very badly. And let’s be honest, the Harpsichord isn’t sweet music to our ears even played by experts.

What it has is 3 bonus features and frequent wins

What we love about mFortune slots, other than they are unbreakable on Android and iOS, is that you can usually find your biggest win at any point.

Because the biggest win here is either by triggering the progressive jackpot or getting 5 of a kind symbols. It means that you know that every spin could get you to click that withdraw button.

What it does mean, however, is that the bonus features in the Sherlock video slot are here simply top up your wallet.

The free spins, with no multiplier, are a welcome respite to your wallet, but not earth shatteringly exciting. The mini 3×3 slot bonus game and Irene Adler click me bonus is a little more, but just as likely to let you walk away with 2x as 10x your bet.

That said, with some constant small wins, we managed to increase our starting budget by 50%. Not bad for a low variance machine.

This Sherlock slot comes with an unusual gamble feature

If you are looking at ways to make this Sherlock mobile slot more exciting, you can gamble any wins less than £€1,000.

And unlike usual gamble features where you can, at best, win up to 4x more, here you can spin to win up to 12x multiplier on your win.

Shown as a pocket-watch,the higher the possible multiplier you choose, the more or less segments the watch is split into. So, for example, if you pick a 2x multiplier, the watch is split evenly into 12 segments, 6 of which you win the multiplier, and 6 of which you lose the winnings.

It’s a crazy little feature which we’ve used to our advantage to bring some spice to this Sherlock slot game.

This downloadable mFortune slot app game doesn’t have the modern twist of Yggdrasil’s Holmes and the Stolen Stones, or glitz and glamour of IGT’s Sherlock Holmes The Hunt for Blackwood slot machine, but that doesn’t mean it’s doesn’t hide enough silliness to keep spinning.

Sherlock Bonus Features

Wilds: The landlady, Mrs Hudson, is the wild symbol and highest paying of the lot. She replaces all other symbols except the bonus ones.

How To Win The Progressive Slot Jackpot: You need to get 5 beak nosed Sherlock Holmes symbol on a winning payline to trigger the progressive jackpot.

This usually ranges from a few hundred to a couple of thousand.

If you use a wild to create a 5 symbol Sherlock win, you don't win the jackpot, instead you get x300 your line bet.

Free Spins: Get 3, 4, or 5 newspaper symbols on a winning payline to trigger 5, 6, and 9 free spins respectively.

You can re-trigger this feature, but it's not incredibly common as it is.

Gamble: After any win you can gamble your winnings to either get as much as 12x your win, or lose it all in a game of chance.

All you have to do is pick from either x1.5, x2, x3, x4, x6, x12 multiplier, and spin the hand on the pocket watch to see if you land on the right segment of the wheel. If you don't, you lose your win.

A fun feature that must be handled with care.

Clueless Bonus: When 2 or more Moriarty symbols show up on a winning payline you trigger a mini-slot game.

Here you spin 3 reels, with different characters, trying to get the same colour symbols to line up in the central payline.

Mostly, you'll end up with barely your bet back, but every once in a while, you get a nice little 5x to 8x your bet win.

Might not sound like much, but this features show up about once every 30 spins, so often enough.

Find The Lady Bonus: Find 2 or more 'moor' symbols on a winning payline and you trigger a click me bonus.

Here, you search for clues hiding in the moors, each giving you cash, and a bigger multiplier.

You can cashout whenever you want. The reason you might want to do that is that if you find the golden coin, it will flip and if you find the monster hound, you end the game winning nothing.

But to be honest, there's no point being cowardly about this feature, as the only way you'll get about 7x to 15x your bet is by finding that coin and hoping it lands on the Lady.

So you might as well click till you find it, even if there's a small chance you might lose 'it' all. It, without the lady, being maybe 2x your bet.

Sherlock Review Conclusion

With a fantastic gamble feature, and plenty of bonus games to keep you spinning, this mFortune Sherlock mobile slot has plenty to recommend for players with smaller budgets who are looking for a solid game to spend hours spinning.

Don't expect to win much more than about 10x to 20x your bet, but you'll get those wins often enough you'll even forgive the strange mixed up theme.

Expert Rating: 3 / 5
A solid slot with good wins and reliable mechanics. It may not break new ground, but it's worth a spin
