The famous 221B Baker Street is the setting for this Merkur Gaming video slot that is a cut above the rest. Being the first time we have played one of their games, we were rather surprised to find that this five reel, twenty pay-line game is something a little more out of the ordinary. This developer is popular in the land-based gambling game, and we suppose it was only natural that they progress online. There is a top prize of 5 x 20 000 coins on a top wager – more than enough to tantalize the highest of rollers.
Merkur games are built on the cornerstone of tradition, passion and innovation and this tells in 221B Baker Street. If you have not yet clicked to this famous address it is where Sherlock Holmes lived, and we had to admit that even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be impressed with the graphic design of this game. Players are invited to solve a mystery murder, as well as win at the same time.
Icons are beautifully graphically illustrated in dark, deep colour, in a style that is very unique. These animate and include, a revolver, bottle of poison (or perhaps blood), magnifying glass, and Ace, King, Queen, Jack. Sherlock Holmes is the highest paying icon offering as well as coin prizes, multipliers too. This is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols. The villain is the scatter icon, and acts as a multiplier too.
A maximum bet is only 40.00 credits over all twenty lines, and makes the top prize even more attractive. Pay-lines may be manipulated by the player and set at one, five, fifteen or twenty. A minimum coin size of 0.01 makes it great for low-rollers to play, and may be set at 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, and 1.00.
There are two bonus games in 221B Baker Street. The Big Ben feature which is triggers by an illustration of Big Ben shrouded in fog, where at least three of these activate the game. Three icons stars 6 free games with up to 5 x multipliers, and landing four of five of these icons allows for even more winning possibility.
The second bonus game is triggered by the second scatter icon called - the Duel Bonus. An icon of Sherlock and the Villain armed, standing back-to-back gets the game going. It offers a three times multiplier and prize capped at 4000 coins. This slot also offers a gamble ladder after winning that makes for a gamble that is both fun and easy to win.
