If you’re looking for a superbly designed fun progressive jackpot slots game you can win big on, Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot– with 4 progressive jackpots is “just the ticket”
This new progressive jackpot slot released in March 2021 has four different progressive jackpots, – the largest of the four (the “WowPot”) is never less than €2,000,000!
Developed by independent games company Just For The Win, and the latest release of the WowPot franchise of games from Microgaming, Sherlock & Moriarty takes us back to 19th Century London, with world famous detective Sherlock, and evil mastermind “Professor James Moriarty” in the hunt for excitement, wins and juicy jackpots.
- With beautiful graphics and sound effects, Sherlock & Moriarty’s minimum stake is just €/$ 0.10 per spin, and goes all the way up to €/$ 100 per spin.
- The game (a “5-liner”) has five reels and offers 20 ways to win.
- The game offers payouts of up to 200 x your bet – so at €/$100 a spin, you could score a (non-jackpot) win of up to €/$20,000. This can be increased even further via bonus round multipliers.
WowPot Jackpots work by starting with a “seed” amount to start the jackpot fund plus a percentage of player wager contributions. The game RTP for the Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot is 86.80% with an additional progressive jackpot contribution of 5.30% equating to a total RTP of 92.10%.
During the game, progressive tokens (the magnifying glass token/s) appear on high symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. One of these tokens collected on the current spin can contribute to the chance of triggering a jackpot.
Trigger the WowPot Jackpot feature in Sherlock & Moriarty, and you’ll have an opportunity to land one of four potential progressive jackpot prizes. You are guaranteed to win at least one of the Jackpots when you trigger the WowPot jackpot wheel.
The Jackpot wheel is split into coloured segments with each colour representing a different progressive jackpot. Depending on where the wheel stops you can win one of the progressive jackpots.

What do we like about Sherlock & Moriarty?
- The Sherlock symbol is the highest value symbol in the game- and awards ten times your stake for 5 in a row on a payline.
- Five wild symbols on the payline is equivalent to five sherlock symbols, or any other symbol in the game. Using wild symbols can help you make winning payout combinations.
- If you land on 4 or fewer question mark Mystery Symbols in the base game, each one will turn to one randomly selected pay symbol. Landing five or more question marks will trigger the Mystery Respins feature.
- The triggering 5+ Mystery Symbols, (or doing so with a combination of wild symbols) will result in those symbols holding, and the other symbols re-spinning You get a final respin when nothing sticky lands, and this is where all mystery symbols transform into a random matching symbol.
Sherlock and Moriarty – Free Spin Features
- Scatter symbols in the game belong to arch-villain, Moriarty. Landing three Moriarty symbols on a base game spin will reward you with 10 free spins, with 2 extra spins per extra scatter on top of the minimum of 3.
- During the Free Spins Game, players can land a triple question mark symbol unique to the bonus round which will trigger 1 of 3 features including either adding extra free spins to their tally, or sticky wilds or +1 multipliers
- Sticky Wild: The symbol position with the sticky Wild will remain in place for the duration of the free spins
- +1 Multiplier , this increases by 1 each time it is revealed and the multiplier is retained for the remainder of the free spins
- +Spins – awards 1, 2 or 3 extra free spins.
The main attraction in this game is undoubtedly the WowPot Jackpot feature. You collect magnifying glass tokens as you play, and these will only appear on premium symbols landing on the 3 middle reels in the base game. The Jackpot Wheel feature triggers randomly, but you get more tokens the higher you set the bet level.
We love the big-win possibilities with progressive jackpot games like WowPot, Mega Moolah and Major Millions, and we were really charmed by this game – it oozes top production values – with great sound effects, slick graphics and enough variety in features to make this a slot to come back to.
Sherlock & Moriarty uses the latest HTML5 technology – so it runs on any device (tablets, Macs, Pc’s, iPads, iPhones, Androids) without any installation or downloads required, and it’s great fun.
Players are hitting the progressive jackpots quite frequently (as the WowPot historical payout statistics show), and judging by all reports and player reviews slots players are loving the game too.
