Holmes and the Stolen Stones – Online Slot with Jackpots and Free-Spins Galore
Holmes and the Stolen Stones online slot is a 5-reel slot inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Yggdrasil Gaming depicts the inimitable Holmes in another crime-solving story, via 20 fixed paylines, five (5) progressive jackpot bonuses, instant win Bonus Game and a Free-Spins Round.
The game though does not have a Wild Symbol. Yet the Progressive Jackpot Bonuses and the additional cash prizes that could be won instantly from the bonus game, and the Free-Spin 3x win-multiplier could more than make up for the lack of it.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones Online Slot Progressive Jackpot Bonus
Five (5) gemstones in varying colors are featured as essential elements to the Holmes and the Stolen Stones story-based slot play. Each gemstone color represents a jackpot level, to which the Blue Gemstone or the Sapphire, offers the least amount of progressive jackpot, while the Purple Gem or Amethyst offers the highest amount of Progressive Jackpot Bonus since the seed prize maxes at 45,000. .
In the base game, the precious stones appear as shards for players to collect and to transform as a full-size gemstone. Those gemstones are then presented as reel icons in the Free-Spins round. During the free round, players must aim to land on Gemstone images in order to complete a 5-piece one-of-a-kind Gemstone collection. Once a free-spins player succeeds in doing so, he or she receives the progressive jackpot corresponding to the color of the completed gemstone collection.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones “Warehouse Bonus Game”
Three or more Bonus Keyhole Symbols set off the Warehouse Bonus Game. Yet, landing on four or five, Bonus Keyhole Symbols are more rewarding as spin outcomes. The occurrence not only grants access to the Warehouse Bonus Game but also awards player's with an instant Bonus Reward of 1,000 or 10,000 coins respectively.
The Warehouse Bonus Game is actually an instant-win Pick Me Game. Here, players choose and click on wooden crates to reveal cash prizes, precious stone shards and a game-ender in the form of a smoke bomb. All cash prizes unraveled are for a bonus game player's taking. Any piece of shard revealed will be added to the cache of shards in the main game. Unraveling a Smoke Bomb ends the bonus game immediately.
A player's total Warehouse Bonus Game winnings constitute the aggregate sum of the unraveled cash prizes plus any additional bonus money for landing on 4 or 5 Keyhole Bonus Symbols.
Holmes and the Stolen Stones Free-Spins Progressive Jackpot Round
A 3x value multiplier applies to all payline wins achieved in the Free-Spins Progressive Jackpot Round.
There are two ways by which the Free-Spins Round could be activated. The first is by landing on three or more Free-Spins Keyhole Symbols. Similar to the Bonus Keyhole Symbol, the game grants players not only 10 free spins but also coin-rewards of 1,000 and 10,000 accordingly, for every four (4) or five (5) Free-Spins Keyhole Symbols appearing anywhere across the reels.
Players can also activate the free games by completing any 5-piece collection of precious stone shards during base game play. Any completed collection of precious stone shards can activate the Free Spins Round in which five Progressive Jackpot Bonuses are at stake.
