Holmes and the Stolen Stones
Holmes and the Stolen Stones is an atmospheric 5-reel, 20 payline slot that sees players on the hunt for stolen diamonds. With a number of local jackpots to trigger and two lucrative bonus features, what's not to love about this Victorian-era hit?
It hardly comes as a surprise to us that Holmes and the Stolen Stones looks absolutely stunning, as this game was created by Yggdrasil, a studio renowned for creating slots that take your breath away they look that good.
The reels are adorned with symbols that are synonymous with Sherlock Holmes, the world-famous detective. High paying symbols feature hand-drawn portraits of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson a leather-bound book and a magnifying glass atop a broken piece of glass. Low paying symbols are intricately designed card suits, clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades.
Behind the reels sits an alleyway with a couple of houses either side of the reels.
As far as sound goes, Holmes and the Stolen Stones has a mysterious soundtrack that plays on repeat throughout gameplay, it can get annoying after a while, but that's usually the case with most online slot games. There are no unique sounds when the reels are spinning unless a win is registered.
All of the game's essential buttons are laid out across a bar at the bottom of the screen, as is the case with almost all Yggdrasil slots. On the left-hand side of the screen is the coin value button that allows players to change their stake from anywhere in between 0.20 and 40.00. Everything else can be found by pressing the + button that floats just above this.
The max bet button and autospin button (that allows players to place up to 1,000 automated spins) can be found either side of the spin button that's situated in the very centre of the bar.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones is a medium volatility slot with a slightly above-average RTP sitting at 96.80%. Players can win a maximum of 30,000x stake which is highly inviting. We'd genuinely recommend this slot regardless of whether you're on a small or large bankroll, it sits neatly in the middle of the road and has plenty to offer.
This is a fantastic slot that not only looks brilliant, but has genuinely great gameplay to match. Chasing after the diamonds to trigger free spins and put you in line to win one of the game's jackpots is an exciting endeavour and adds a new dynamic to the game that not many others can boast.
