Theme of The Game
Most of you tested your detective skills while playing the famous murder mystery board game, called Cluedo. It was always difficult to determine who the murderer was actually, but those of you who had better investigating abilities had plenty of luck with unveiling the mysterious killer.
Well, all true detectives among spinners are in for a treat, since WMS recently released a slot version of the famous board game, so, apart from having the pleasure of determining whether Mr. Green, Mrs.
Peacock or Mrs. White did it and where and with what they did it, gamers will also have an opportunity to win plenty, thanks to this five-reel slot that offers 40fixed paylines, and more than enough special features to make all gamers look for culprits all night long.
Williams Interactive was established back in 1943, and Harry Williams, the founder of the company, first started producing pinball machines.
In the last decade of the 20th century, WMS Gaming turned to producing slot machines, and today the company is one of the leading providers of gaming machines to land-based casinos across the globe. WMS started offering their slots online in 2010, and up until now, the company from Chicago has more than 200 online games available.
How To Play It
The base game might seem a bit complicated, especially if you are trying the slot for the first time, but do not worry, since you will get the hang of it soon enough. The slot features a 5×4 layout and offers 40 fixed paylines, so all you need to worry about in the beginning is the amount of money you want to place in your bet.
The lowest you can go is $0.40 per spin, while the maximum bet is $200. As you may suspect, the 2016 release pays left to right, beginning from the far left reel, while three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts.
The visuals are done perfectly and fit the theme completely, as well as the soundtrack. The reels are set in front of the mansion where the murder took place, with three mayor suspects functioning as high-paying symbols: Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Mrs. White. Don’t forget the possible murder weapons – the Knife, Wrench and Lead Pipe.
The Mansion is the Jackpot symbol and pays the most, while the Logo is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols during base game. There are also Mansion Bonus and Card Bonus Scatters, as well as symbols for all the rooms of the mansion, which appear on certain positions of the reels.
Apart from the main reel set, you will also notice five additional reel sets placed on the right side of the screen. Each reel set represents one of the rooms in the mansion, and each set is triggered by the corresponding symbol.
The Conservatory is triggered once the Conservatory symbol appears on reel 1, and Mr. Green, Mrs. White and Mrs. Peacock are added to the reels, offering decent payouts for mixed combinations.
Billiard Room symbol awaits you on reel 2, and this room reel set can award you with up to 12 billiard ball Wilds, if the white ball appears on the central reel.
To go to the Library, simply land the corresponding symbol on reel 3, where you will get up to two stacked Wilds.
The Kitchen symbol appears on reel 4. Beware of knifes once you enter the Kitchen, since up to 15 knife Wilds will be added to the reels.
The Dining Room is triggered once the Dining Room symbol appears on reel 5, where you can expect up to five full reels of poison Wilds.
Each of the extra reel sets are played only once and offer separate Wilds and Jackpots, which can be won by landing five Magnifying Glass Scatters.
The WMS product offers two Bonus features. Mansion Bonus Scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, reward gamers with 7 freebies once on the reels. You start off in the Conservatory Room reel set. If you land an Envelope Scatter on reel 5, you will get an additional freebie and a free pass to some of four other room reel sets. Each of the room reel sets will be played as we already described, and each of them offer the same Bonus as during the base game.
Spinning Detective Bonus is triggered by landing three Card Bonus Scatters, where the slot takes you to a different screen where you get to pick seven cards and try to solve the case by revealing the suspect, the room and the weapon of the same colour.
If you get only two matching symbols, you will be given a last chance with 1 additional pick. If you solve the case, you will get three additional picks.
The Mansion Jackpot symbol is the highest paying symbol of the WMS product, offering 250 times the triggering bet for five of a kind. Try to go to the Dining Room, since it offers the biggest possible payout in the slot, 500 times the bet to be exact, while the kitchen offers a jackpot of 100 times the initial bet.
The 2016 release probably seems very complicated, but, truth being told, the best crime stories are the ones where you need a bit of time to discover who did it and why, so you will need to dedicate your time and money to fully understand the rules.
Cluedo Spinning Detectives is a perfect game for spinners who love their slots packed with action, and we are positive that the WMS product will keep them chained for their seats for hours.
