Sherlock Holmes is one of the most popular fictional characters. His exploits have been created for films and television serials as well. Sherlock Holmes lived in the peak Victorian period when London was characterized by hansom cabs and gas street lights. Sherlock Holmes and this Victorian era have also made their way to online slots. This article reviews three excellent Sherlock Holmes themed slot games.

Sherlock Mystery is the online slot from the online casino software provider Playtech. The wild symbol is a villain figure probably Moriarity. It also awards the highest line payouts. Sherlock Homes and Dr. Watson are other high paying symbols. Holmes smokes his pipe and Watson enjoys a cup of tea in the win animations. When the doctor appears to Holmes’ right there is a bonus payout. Visually the symbols merge and you can hear the famous line “Elementary my dear Watson”. The 221b Baker Street logo triggers 10 free spins with an extra wild symbol and random multipliers. The magnifying glass symbol triggers the Crime Bonus game on the second screen. You will be taken to the scene of the crime where you will collect evidence and win bonus prizes accompanied by commentary from Holmes.

London Inspector is the video slot from Realtime Gaming. The reference to Sherlock Holmes is oblique but unmistakable. His famous icon appears on the head of the reels and his pipe and magnifying glass appear as symbols on the reels. The other symbols help create the Victorian period. The pocket watch is the wild symbol and the London inspector is the scatter symbol. The blue police helmet and gas light are the other thematic symbols. In the bonus feature you start with up to 15 free spins with tripled payouts. London Inspector also includes the randomly triggered progressive jackpot.

Victorian Villain from Microgaming also has no direct reference to Sherlock Homes but there is no mistaking the allusion. A Sherlock Holmes look alike Detective Yard is a woman in search of the villain. The other high paying symbols in this 243 ways slot game are the Victorian villain, the London policeman and the Victorian lady. The animations are interesting. The Victorian Villain logo is the wild symbol. The Search Clues logo triggers a second screen bonus game very similar to the one described in Sherlock Mystery. The skull symbol gives a choice from three free spin sets. Essentially you choose between more free spins or larger multipliers.
