Play’n GO’s New Riddle Reels Slot A Hoot

Play’n GO’s recent big slot release will have Sherlock Holmes-wannabees scrambling about feverishly for their own magnifying glass, houndstooth, and pipe – eager to solve the next big mindboggling mystery. Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches is a slot after every mystery solver’s heart.

Inspired by history’s most famous detective himself, Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches features symbols fashioned after all the old beloved characters. Irene Adler, Eugenia Ronder, Professor Moriarty, and Charles Augustus Milverton represent the slot’s themed cast, and are joined on the reels by the supposed weapons that caused the crime. A gun, knife, rope, and wrench make up the bag of hot items.

Classic Meets Boardgame

What gives Play’n GO’s latest new creation a really nice look and feel, and certainly representative of that extra special touch, is that it draws its inspiration from a mix of old fruitie-stlye slots magic and a classic whodunnit-style boardgame. These combine with a classic 3x3 reel-layout, a standard wild, a pair of multiplier wilds, a Mystery Bonus Feature, and a Cash of Riches feature, creating a fantastic online slots experience for the budding crime detective and mystery solving player’s enjoyment.

The wilds and how they substitute and multiply are a definite highlight of Play’n GO’s new crime mystery-style slot. Wilds will substitute for any symbol but the game’s scatter symbol – this is pretty standard as far as modern slots go. But what makes Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches just a bit more unusual than what we typically can expect to find in terms of wilds, is that the slot is home to x2 and even x3 multiplier wilds appearing on the reels during the base-game.

Two Superb Special Features

The first of the two special features is the Mystery Bonus Feature. Since 3 scatters are required in order to successfully trigger the Cash of Riches Feature, the Mystery Bonus Feature is triggered whenever the player triggers a scatter short of the main feature, i.e. when two scatter bonus symbols are landed anywhere on the slot’s reels.

The supreme special features highlight is however the Cash of Riches Feature, which is triggered by a total of 3 or more scatter symbols landed on the reels during a single spin.

The feature presents the player with a real opportunity to solve a mysterious crime – for a reward of course! The feature includes a special bonus meter and brings into view a game-board together with an objective, the case to be solved, and a dice.

A total of 4 dice rolls are initially awarded and rolling these will unlock certain clues. Clue points are accumulated by landing winning spins, and each clue point gained will fill the special bonus meter a few notches.

The player who fills the meter right to the very top is instantly awarded a Mega Spin along with a re-triggered bonus game. But even if the meter isn’t completely full by the time all four roles of the dice have been depleted, the player still gets to make the most of the special Clue Point Wheel for a bonus cash payout in return for their mystery-solving efforts.

Riddle Reels: A Case of Riches is now live with all Play’n GO’s partner operators.
