Riddle Reels slot (A Case of Riches) by Play'n Go takes us back in time to Victorian London and Sherlock Holmes. I always like this theme, the superb EGT game The Secrets of London slot being one of note, as well as Yggdrasil's Holmes and The Stolen Stones slot. Here we get the expected gas lit London street scene as the background, mysterious classical music as the soundtrack and familiar symbols of crime on the reels. So will the clues unravel here to raise our bankroll or shall we lose it within this great riddle?
We have a small grid here on Riddle Reels slot of 3 rows and 3 reels with 9 fixed pay lines. Holmes and Watson Wilds can appear on all of them with 2x and 3x multipliers and these are the best 3-of-a-kind pays at 12, 96 and 324x stake respectively. You then get 4 suspects, Blue, Yellow, Green and Pink paying 12, 8, 4 and 2x respectively and 4 clue symbols of Gun, Dagger, Wrench and Rope paying 1 down to 0.4x for a line of 3. Question Mark scatters appear on all reels and standard symbols can appear stacked too. As you would expect, the game is packed with features as these 3-reel jobs tend to be - think Eye of The Kraken slot!
When 2 scatters land, this gives you a free re-spin to try and get the third. If it doesn't come in, the scatters will expand and hold in place, eventually revealing either a Suspect or Clue symbol which may or may not create a win for you.
Once 3 scatters are in, you then get a Clues Board with 4 dice rolls awarded. You land on 4 different colour clues as you progress. Each will set you a challenge to get a win within either the 1 or 2 or 3 free spins awarded. You get paid the win, and may get enhancements like for example all Clues on the reels are the same, or Wilds. Each Clue will also offer you Clue Points and you need to fill the meter to solve the case and get a Mega Spin. This consists of a Wild reel of either 1, 2 or 3x Wilds and the the other reels will guarantee to land on all of the same Clue or Suspect symbol. If you don't solve it, you get a free wheel gamble for the Mega Spin with the winning segment getting bigger for the more clues you solved and points collected. You also automatically retrigger the bonus if you win this free gamble! You can go through quite a few Mega Spins and I assume the final one would be a big win - after all, Play'n Go as usual tell us we can win 5,000x here.
Riddle Reels slot has a 96.22% RTP and I must say that despite the bizarre feature mechanic, I enjoyed playing this game. You won't win much in the base game but it does well enough to keep you going and the music, sounds and animations make it quite relaxing to lose on. The feature is odd, but it's also volatile and can go on quite a while should you be lucky enough to be in for a good one. If you fills the clue meter with your clue points, then you should end up with a nice big total. It may not be a case of riches for you, but it definitely will be a case of good fun...
