Crime-themes are all the rage in May 2018 and following on from Thunderkick’s Wild Heist at Peackock Mansion, Playtech bring us this 5 reel and 40 fixed payline slot, Murder Mystery.

Both games have a similar style in fact – an old English house set in the country, and cartoon characters – in this case a moustachioed detective and three shady looking murder suspects. In Playtech’s game your aim is to reveal the murderer, and in doing so, unlock wilds, free spins and multipliers.

What’s cool about Murder Mystery is that you can choose a feature with your preferred volatility in the bonus round – low, medum or high. The RTP for the game comes in at 96.46% on average.

There’s plenty of action to enjoy in the features – including up to 25 free spins with extra wilds, a pick me round with up to 10x multipliers, and lots of random transforming symbols.

Key Facts About Murder Mystery Slot

  • Murder Mystery is a 5 reel slot with 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines paying out from left to right.
  • Bet range is from 40p to £80 per spin. Wins are calculated as a multiple of your line bet – at 40p per spin your line bet is 1p (40p / 40 lines).
  • The game is set in the grounds of an old English country house where a murder has taken place. The main character is a detective with hunting hat and huge Victorian moustache. There are three murder suspects to investigate during the game. Graphically this is a top notch game with a cartoon style and slick animations.
  • The low value symbols are the colored stones, green, blue, purple and red (which pays out 100x for five in a row).
  • Premium symbols are the potential murder weapons – poison bottle, dagger and pistol, and our murder suspects, a grey-haired man, a fat lady and a femme fatale (the highest paying at 500x for five in a row).
  • Look out as well for the Wild – it comes stacked on all reels and substitutes for all others except scatters. It pays out 750x for five in a row.
  • The four features are triggered by the Detective scatter – you need three or more anywhere on the reels.

Murder Mystery Slot Game Features

Murder Mystery Features

This game has some pretty exciting features and the action comes pretty thick and fast. Here’s what to look out for.

Murder Spins

These can occur at any point in the base game of in any of the Multi Spins features. There are two types and they both GUARANEE WINS!

Weapon Spin – As many as 12 ?s are added to the reels and during your spin will transform to reveal the same weapon, creating wins.

Murderer Spin – Same as the Weapon Spin, but during the Free Spins round up to 12 ?s are added which transform to reveal the high value murderer!

Feature Select

This is the main feature in the game and it comes when three or more Detective scatters land anywhere on the reels. When they do you get to pick from four possible features – with varying volatility:

Wild Spins (low volatility) – 3 scatters give you 12 free spins, 4 gives you 16 free spins and 5 gives you 25 free spins. During the spins 2 wilds will appear on reels 1 to 3.

Reveal Spins (medium volatility) – 3 scatters give you 6 free spins, 4 give you 8 and 5 give you 12 spins. During each free spins up to 12 ‘?’s will appear on the reels and transform into any random symbols (including the wild).

Clue Hunt (medium volatility) – Head to the garden to hunt for the murder weapon. You’ll be presented with a choice of 12 question marks. Behind each is a weapon (or an end-game puff of smoke!). Poison bottles are 1x, knives are 3x and guns are 6x. If you reveal the puff of smoke then the feature ends, and each cash prize total for each weapon is subject to a 10x.

Multi Spins Feature (high volatility) – 3 scatters give you 12 free spins, 4 give you 16 spins and 5 give you 25 free spins. PLUS ALL WINS are subject to a 3x!

Also … during Multi Spins the Murder Spins feature can randomly trigger, giving you 12 ‘?’s on a spin which then transform into another symbol.

AND … you can pick up extra free spins during the Multi Spins feature as 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters landing on the reels will give you 3, 12, 16 or 25 EXTRA free spins in your cache!

How To Win On Murder Mystery Slot

This is a feature-packed affair with lots going on. Of course, you can’t make a slot game pay out at will, but by way of a re-cap here are the key points to look out for when chasing those wins.

  1. Stacked Wilds – Look out for these on any reel – 5 wilds in a payline will pay out 18.75x your total stake (or 750x your line bet).
  2. Feature Select – Choose Your Volatility – We love this feature where you get to decide your risk level in the bonus round – Clue Hunt at medium variance is a favourite with a nice 10x multiplier on your wins.
  3. Multi Spins Feature – Ok, so the risk level is greater (high variance) but the Multi Spins is where it’s at for those big payouts. 3x multipliers on ALL wins, possibility of Murder Spins, AND lots of re-triggers!
  4. Play Responsibly – Remember, if the game isn’t going your way, just take a break and come back another time. You can’t win on every spin!
  5. Play at a Recommended UK Slot Site – Choose from our list of licensed UK slot sites to ensure you get a safe, fair and secure gaming experience.


This is one of our favourite releases for May 2018. The basics are all there – nice theme, great graphics and animations – and on top of all that you have a really strong set of features, with even the choice to pick for yourself which you want to go for! The win potential is best in the Multi Spins round, but it comes with a higher risk of course, so choose carefully. Good luck!
