Cluedo returns to the casino world
Normally, when one thinks of a Cluedo-themed slot, the mind wanders to IGT’s Cluedo-themed game. However, WMS Gaming have released their own franchise slot lately, and it is known as the Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot machine. Their Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot offers vast gameplay, but is overly complex.
Why is Cluedo always overly complex?
For some reason or another, most Cluedo-themed slots are so complex. The Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot graphics are simple if faithful enough, but the features in the Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot are just so overly difficult to grasp that it can leave many players frustrating. We’ll try to be a simple as we can when describing them in our Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot review, then.
Stiff as a corpse wagers
You don’t get a lot of wiggle room in the Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot game. You will find that there are 40 paylines, and wagers range from a floor of 0.40 up to 12.00 per spin. True, the maximum wager in the Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot isn’t going to cost you a packet, but the minimum wager is a little steep.
No shortage of bonuses
There is certainly no shortage of Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot bonuses. Players can make their way through various Room Reel Sets as they play, and each Room Reel Set offers different special symbols and wild icons – which are far too numerous to list here – but the paytable of the slot goes into depth about what each special icon in each Room Reel Set does. Added perks of these reel sets include various types of wilds. Naturally, some Room Reel Sets are more rewarding than others, and we’re looking at the Billiard Room, Kitchen, and Dining Room features.
Players who land an envelope on the fifth reel of the Conservatory, Billiard, and Library rooms can land extra spins or the chance to switch rooms, whilst landing it in the Dining Room can see you bag up to 5 wild reels.
A Spinning Detectives bonus occurs when card symbols appear on the first, second, and third reels in any Room Reel Set in the base game. Players get 7 cards to select a suspect, a weapon, and a room to pocket prizes.
A free spins bonus is also present in this slot, and it is triggered when players land mansion icons on the first, third, and fifth reels of the game. This offers up a total of 7 free spins. Players start in the Conservatory, so golden symbols can bolster their wins. Moving into another Room Reel Set will offer other perks, as expected.
The latest “whodunit” slot impresses
The Cluedo: Spinning Detectives slot is a masterpiece from WMS Gaming. The only real criticism comes from the fact that the slot is so complex, its features so vast and numerous that it takes a good few hours to fully understand how all of them work. If you haven’t got time for that, IGT’s Cluedo slot is far simpler. However, if time is on your hands and you want the definitive Cluedo gaming experience in slot format, WMS Gaming’s latest take on the franchise is your cup of tea.
