Victorian Villain slot might not mention him by name, but we’re pretty sure that the big inspiration for this game came from Sherlock Holmes, or at least from his time period, from the 19th century London. The action focuses on villains and the female detective that’s looking for him, as well as police men and on the idea of a crime mystery, which gets you looking for clues. Microgaming is the one behind this slot, and the design looks like an older one of theirs. Still, it’s also got fairly modern features, like the All Pays system with ways to win, or things like scatters, wilds and free spins that have multipliers. A jackpot of only $2,500 seems to be advertised.
Betting and Prizes
At most, you can have 5 coins in the wager for a single line. You do get the equivalent of 25 fixed lines inside, since the All Pays system requires it. The coin bet range gets from $0.01 to $0.50. As for the total betting range, it’s between $0.25 and $62.50.
Victorian Villain game claims to offer a top prize of 5,000 coins, so 1,000x line bet. The actual value of that prize wouldn’t go higher than $2,500 normally.
Victorian Villain Slot Features
The role of the wild is given to the logo which spells Victorian Villain. You may use these symbols as substitutes for all the other symbols that the game has, the exceptions being the two types of scatters. Because only the three reels from the center get the wilds, these symbols can take over pay lines by themselves and they have no prizes to give away directly.
Both scatter symbols have the ability to pay you, and they are needed in just three positions in order to do their job. Each one pays you 50 times total bet when the three scatters are present.
The first scatter will offer you access to the feature called Villain Free Spins. Inside, you can pick one of the three options. There are 15 spins with 3x multipliers, 10 spins with 5x multipliers, or 5 spins with 10x multipliers. You choose the one you like bet.
Second, we have a look at the Search for Clues. This bonus game has you looking for clues inside a room, and eventually there will be prizes available as well in it.
Theme & Design
If we looked only at the Victorian characters and the various logos and objects available on the reels, the design would be a decent one. The downside is that there are italic style poker letters and numbers, with an all black background, and they’re the part that disappoints in this case.
I enjoyed the features, and especially the high multipliers which come with the free spins. The graphics were less impressive, though some good things can be found in there as well.
