Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches
Sherlock Holmes himself is the star of Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches, a game where he’s accompanied by Dr. Watson, as he tries to solve a murder. You help him out along the way, collecting clues and working your way towards a big top jackpot, the usual promise of every slot machine. The game is about as well designed as you’d expect it, since it’s a Play n GO release, and the fact that it has 3×3 reels is not an issue.
With a classic setup, the game area gets only themed symbols, which is a pleasant surprise. Sherlock and Dr. Watson are seen together in one symbol, but there are several other characters there. Professor Moriarty, Irene Adler, Eugene Ronder and Milverton are present, as are various potential murder weapons, as low value symbols (rope, wrench, knife and handgun).
It’s Play n GO that offers us Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches, and we once again see that this developer is one of the top names of the industry for a very good reason. They have excellent slots in their collection, games with modern graphics and big top jackpots.
How To Play It
With 10 coins required for each round’s wager, there is a betting range of $0.10 to $100, for each spin.
3×3 reels are in play, with 9 active lines always present. You form your combinations by getting three symbols of the same type on one of the lines. Don’t let the classic setup fool you, there are some decent features inside.
One of my favorite icons, the wild, is the one where you see the detective and his sidekick together. It’s a regular wild at times, but it can also come in 2x and 3x multiplier variants. A best case scenario would be to land three wilds with the 3x multiplier on the same line, the payout in that case being 324x the stake. With regular wilds, you get up to 12x the stake only. As you can see, up to 27x multipliers are possible with the right wilds along for the ride.
For the free spins, you need the scatter symbol, the one with the red question mark, landing three times on as many reels. If only two show up, you will get a re-spin for the third reel, so that you can try for the bonus feature one more time. If that doesn’t happen, you will get the Mystery feature instead.
In the Mystery feature, you will get the scatters to duplicate on their reels, and then turn into a single icon. You get either a weapon or a suspect in all those positions.
If you do get to the free spins, then the feature is called Case of Riches. It involves 4 rolls of the dice, where you move on the board, get clues, and then win. You’re trying to fill up the special Clue Meter, but even if you don’t, you still get access to a Clue Point Wheel, just with a lower chance to solve it. If the case is solved, you get a Mega Spin. Here, you use a wild with a multiplier (up to 3x), along with the weapon or suspect symbol chosen for the other reels.
The top jackpot of Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches will get up to 5,000x the stake. It’s a good payout, typical for the games from this developer. Even better, it’s accompanied by a 96.22% RTP (this can change, it’s up to the casino).
Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches is a charming game, and a lot of fun. It’s not the usual 3-reel slot machine, as it adds plenty of cool features and excellent graphics. Ultimately, it’s fun and it’s worth checking out.
