Those of you who are familiar with the board game will really love the Cluedo slot machine game created by WagerWorks, as it takes imagery from the game in order to create the symbols and give you some really interesting features, particularly when it comes to the bonus rounds that you can play during the spins in order to get a bit of extra bonus cash while you are playing. There is a lot of style to this game, and that certainly makes it stand out from the less interesting slots that you might come across more regularly with generic themes.
The symbols in the Cluedo slot start off with the lowest paying symbols, the card denominations, which are often used in modern five reel slots as traditional options that have taken over from the fruit, 7s, and BARs that you used to come across often. Here though they are given their own unique twist by the fact that they are each paired with one of the potential murder weapons: the A is with the revolver, the K has the dagger, the Q has the spanner, the J is with the rope, the 10 is paired with the lead pipe, and the 9 sits with the candlestick. This certainly makes the reels look a little more interesting, and brings in one of the important features of the board game too! The other symbols that you will see are related to the other main feature, the characters who may well have murdered the man whose killing you are seeking to solve: there is the smug looking Reverend Green, the strict Mrs White, retired but still proud seeming Colonel Mustard, the grinning Mrs Peacock, worried and thoughtful Professor Plum, and of course the temptress of Miss Scarlett, who threatens to put you off the case altogether with her distractions.
Finally, the highest paying symbol in the game is a picture frame which contains the silhouettes of all of the characters as well as the name of the game, which may well turn out to be your biggest clue as to who the murderer was! There is also a special feature or two to be found here: there is a wild symbol which takes the form of a newspaper called The Sunday Echo, which has the word “Wild!” as a headline and follows this up with “extra! Extra! Extra!”. This will give you better matches by substituting for other symbols, and when you put down the maximum bet and find five of these on a pay line you will get the maximum jackpot.
The final symbol that you will see in Cluedo is the “Who Won It?” bonus symbol, which features these words as well as a magnifying glass hovering over a confidential file. When you get three of these appearing scattered on a pay line that you are covering you will go into the bonus round for your chance to win more, where you have to make a guess at guilt.
