The game’s jackpot feature is randomly triggered by the appearance of tiny magnifying glass progressive tokens that arrive attached to high-value symbols on the middle 3 reels. Collecting the tokens can activate the jackpot wheel that you spin for a chance at winning the Mini, Minor, Major, or Wowpot! progressive jackpot prizes that start at $10, $100, $50 000, and $2 000 000, respectively.
Landing 4 or fewer mystery symbols causes all of them to transform into the same pay symbol. If you land 5 or more, you will activate Mystery Respins where the triggering mystery symbols and wilds will remain locked in place while the feature is active. If new mystery symbols or wilds land, they will also become sticky and an extra respin will be awarded. Once you run out of repins, all the mystery symbols on the grid will transform into the same pay symbol.
Landing at least 3 scatters in the base game will trigger 10 free spins, any additional scatters will award you an extra 2 free spins per symbol. Special feature symbols represented by a trio of question marks can appear while the feature is active, randomly transforming into a sticky wild, a +1 multiplier, or up to 3 free spins.
Sherlock & Moriarty Wowpot! slot is a compellingly presented slot with a monolithic potential payoff. The slot’s visual presentation is just as atmospheric and gloomily menacing as you would expect a Sherlock Holmes storybook to be. The Mystery Respins and Free Spins features offer reasonably frequent winning opportunities as you wait for your shot at the Jackpot Wheel to take home a minimum of $2 million for the Wowpot! The gameplay is interesting enough for the slot to be a great experience without the massive jackpot but it never hurts to have the chance to be a millionaire.
