221B Baker Street
Minimum / Maximum Bet:
Duel Bonus, Free Spins, Gamble Feature, Multipliers
Free Spins: The Big Ben symbol is as eye-catching as the landmark itself, so no wonder it was chosen as the symbol that will get you to the bonus round. The number of spins you get depends on how many Big Bens you land:
– Three – between two and six games
– Four – between six and 14
– Five – 10 to 20
But, the round won’t start just because the symbols have landed. You’ll need to click one of them to start a short animation that reveals the exact number of spins and multipliers you get (up to 5x). We enjoy every time this happens, as it makes the game feel more unique.
Gamble Feature: After each win, you’ll be asked if you want to go for double or nothing, or collect your win. If you choose the first option, the Gamble Feature is activated. Guess whether the next card in the deck will be red or black and get double what you originally won. We found this very useful for small wins because we could usually double them.
Wild: The Wild symbol replaces every symbol except Scatters.
Duel Bonus: There are actually two different Scatter symbols in this game, and each triggers a different bonus. The first one starts the Duel Bonus, where Sherlock and Moriarity shoot objects off a shelf. When it’s Sherlock’s turn, he’ll reveal a bonus, while Moriarty will destroy it. The bonus goes on for three rounds max, and at the end of each round, you get to choose whether you want to collect Sherlock’s bonus or keep playing. You’ll only have one chance at the bonus in front of you, so choose wisely. We chose the 200x when we got it in the second round the last time we played because we thought it was too big of a risk to lose such a multiplier in the third round.
Scatters: The other Scatter symbol (Moriarty) will multiply your stake:
– Two symbols – 1x your bet
– Three – 5x
– Four – 20x
– Five – 100x
From featuring a beloved character to unique and rewarding bonus features – this slot has it all. We absolutely loved all the action, as there was something new going on every spin. The anticipation kept rising, especially when we triggered the Duel Bonus— and took a 500x multiplier in the second round!
In the end, we won ₹4,15,873! We happily recommend it to any VIP player thanks to the win potential and bonuses.
221B by Fils Game: This is another Sherlock-themed slot but with simpler graphics and bonus features. You’ll only find a free spins round here, though a very rewarding one.

Spin a Clue by Slot Factory: Speaking of mysteries, Spin a Clue is another detective slot with a lot of fun features.
