When an online slot provider such as IGT gets a certain famous license, you can rest assured that they will do their utmost to ensure that their slot does justice to the original franchise as far as graphics and game-play are concerned. Cluedo – Who Won It is a perfect example of this, as it takes players through all of the mystery and thrill of the original game in slot form, with major prizes on offer to boot.
For those who have never heard of the game originally created in the 1940s, Cluedo can best be described as a crime solving board game which requires strategy and deduction skills: while one player act as the perpetrator and must deflect attention, the others investigate a death and try to piece together clues, including where the crime took place and the weapon used. Professor Plum and Colonel Mustard are amongst the many popular characters that are featured on the reels, whereas the murder weapons spread over the traditional IGT playing card symbols, like the Hammer over the K, for example.
Gameplay and Prizes
The slot features 15 win lines in play on each spin and a maximum bet per line of $5. The biggest reel-based jackpot is a staggering 25,000 coins, which one can hit by matching three wild Newspaper symbols.
Features and Bonuses
The Wild card is represented by the Newspaper symbol and has no extra functions, whereas the Who Won It Bonus symbol is the scatter; it appears only on the first three reels, and three or more trigger the Who Won It bonus round.
This bonus round is where Cluedo – Who Won It reaches its peak and the license yields its benefits. The screen now displays an array of possible suspects, weapons and rooms, while a magnifying glass hovers over each to uncover potential bonus amounts. When the magnifying glass stops on a bonus offer, the player can choose to accept or refuse the offer. This can be done up to twice, as the third offer is automatically accepted regardless of whether it is higher or lower than the previous ones.
Cluedo – Who Won It is a brilliant choice for fans of the original game and slots in general alike.
