  • Cash – Collect 1 cash clue to win 2x the triggering bet amount, 2 cash clues for 5x the bet, or 3 cash clues for 10x the bet. Cash clues displaying +1 also award an additional pick.
  • The Hunt Bonus - Collect 3 map clues to win 10 free spins in The Hunt Bonus, or 4 to win 15 free spins.
  • Blackwood Wheel Bonus - Collect 3 wheel clues to win the Blackwood Wheel Bonus. Collect 4 wheel clues to earn a richer initial wheel.
  • An awarded bonus begins after all picks are complete. Any cash award earned in the Picker Puzzle carries forward into the bonus.
  • Bonus symbols appear on reels 1, 3, and 5 in base game only.


Blackwood Wheel Bonus

  • Spin the wheel in the Blackwood Wheel Bonus and collect prizes while attempting to elude Blackwood.
  • The wheel can contain prize values, Blackwood wedges and Sherlock wedges.
  • The wheel changes after the 4th spin and again after the 8th spin to offer higher prizes, Sherlock wedges, and more Blackwood wedges. Sherlock prize values increase when the wheel changes.
  • A bonus earned with 4 wheel clues in the Picker Puzzle has a richer initial wheel which also includes a Sherlock wedge.
  • Begin with 3 active pointers. Any active pointer that lands on a Blackwood wedge is deactivated. If all pointers are disabled the bonus ends. If any active pointer lands on a Sherlock wedge, all pointers are reactivated and the Sherlock prize for that wheel is won.
  • All prizes pointed to by active pointers are won, including any pointers reactivated by Sherlock on that spin.


Bonus Doubler

If at least one pointer is active at the completion of 10 spins, the total bonus win, including any win from the initiating Picker Puzzle, is doubled and the bonus ends.

All wheel values, including Sherlock prizes, are multiplied by coin value.


The Hunt Bonus

  • Help Holmes and Watson locate the 5 scenes of Blackwood's crimes.
  • Play 10 free spins if 3 map clues were found in the Picker Puzzle, or 15 free spins if 4 map clues were found.


Locked Wilds

  • 5 locations are circled on the reel map, marking the scenes of Blackwood’s crimes. If a Holmes or Watson symbol lands on any of these locations, that symbol becomes a Locked Wild and stays locked in that location for the remaining free spins.


Bonus Doubler

  • If Holmes and Watson lock on all 5 crime scene locations, the total bonus win at the end of the spins, including any win from the initiating Picker Puzzle, is doubled.


Holmes and Watson symbols are Wild and substitute for all other symbols.

Reels used in The Hunt Bonus are different from the reels used in the base game. The free spins cannot be retriggered.

Free spins are played at the same coin value and same number of lines as the triggering spin.
