Moriarty Megaways Review
Everyone across the world knows that Moriarty is famously Sherlock Holmes' archenemy and main rival throughout the Arthur Conan Doyle book series. They are two sides of the same coin but remain at odds with each other - which is what makes them so engaging as characters. iSoftBet decided to developer a slot based all around these characters to add to their Twisted Tales series.
Moriarty Megaways plays on 6-reels with 117,649 ways to win with the Megaways mechanic that can actually increase to 352,947 ways to win during the free spins round. There is a mixture of modifiers with features to help you gain wins reaching up to 37,500x your stake.
Set amongst the Victorian streets of London (presumably Baker Street), Moriarty Megaways definitely encompasses a steampunk feeling with cobblestones and Victorian architecture. The sky is dark with particles of dust flying around the screen to really show the grittiness of Victorian England.
As for the symbols on the reels, they are various items relating to the characters such as chess pieces and pocket watches. There's even incredible attention to detail with certain Moriarty wins by dissolved by spiderwebs as Sherlock famously called Moriarty a spider in nature. All of the symbols are beautifully designed and look of a higher quality with so much detailing that you can't help but marvel at them during spins.
The music features cellos, violins and pianos to create a dramatic score that you'd expect to hear in a slot like this. Thankfully, it's not too overwhelming and fits in perfectly - so you can enjoy it without having to worry about where the sound button is. As you spin, you'll hear comments from Sherlock and Moriarty with remarks which add an extra level to this slot.
Despite having the Megaways mechanic, the gameplay still remains quite easy to understand. There are only 6-reels with an extra row above reels 2 to 4 as well as two different sets of reels during free spins which improve the ways to win to 352,947.
Like most iSoftBet slots, you can expect to find the spin button, autospin and bet level just to the right of the reels with additional settings to the left of the screen.
Moriarty Megaways has a good RTP of 96% and a high volatility level. As for the maximum payout, you can expect to see wins reaching up to 37,500x your stake through the free spins round with the ways to win increased to 352,947.
Not only does this slot look phenomenal, but the gameplay is just as impressive with the Megaways and free spins mechanic. All of the tiny details in the design and audio just make Moriarty Megaways a slot that you can't help but love.
In terms of win potential, you can expect wins of up to 37,500x your stake but be aware of the high volatility. It's simply elementary, that you try out this slot and see if you enjoyed it as much as we did.
