Data

If you haven’t played any of Edict’s games before, you better take a closer look of the bottom right corner of the screen. Before you click on that spin button, adjust the bet preferences. You can put in play between 1 and 20 paylines, which have a huge effect on your experience. We recommend playing with 20 paylines in play to benefit from higher hit rate, ergo much more enticing game play. The bet can be in the range of 0.01 and 40. A rather distinctive fact t

Features

Unlike other video slots from Edict, like Amazonia for instance, 221B Baker Street featuring Sherlock Holmes looks like a slot from this modern era. Furthermore, the RNG actually gives the player a chance to win. Frequent occurring bonus features will allow you to quickly pick up the pace and make that win counter increase. As you might’ve expected, Sherlock Holmes is the wild symbol in this game, whereas the Big Ben is the bonus symbol, which activates the free spins bonus feature. Moriarty and the Duel symbols are scatters, but they pay cash prizes only.

Special Features

I really admire the free spins bonus feature and the distinctive terms. That being said, hitting 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols can trigger up to 6, 14 and 20 free spins respectively. On top of this, these free rounds are spiced up with a multiplier of flat 5x. During the testing I was fortunate to trigger several bonus features with 3 scatters. Unfortunately, as it seem, 4 and 5 scatter bonus feature are rarity. Despite this, the game is still fun and Sherlock shows up frequently, securing you a win when you most need him.

Conclusion

Well, 221 B Baker Street definitely has the potential to change your month around. It’s not a progressive jackpot, yet with a top prize of 20,000 it can shift you back in the right direction. I like how the symbols are carefully crafted and most importantly, all of them are unique. Maybe, the trigger rate for the Duel Bonus could’ve been higher, with one purpose only, to see Moriarty dueling our beloved Sherlock Holmes from Baker Street.
