Crystal Plays Detective

JPM's Crystal brand continues to blaze the trail of high-end entertainment with the release of Sheerluck Holmes, an entirely new AWP for the UK Category C sector.

Sheerluck Holmes is the latest embodiment of Crystal's strategy to support operators with high quality games at extremely competitive prices and as JPM's Paul Bursnell revealed: "Operator feedback on the Crystal ethos and commercial intentions has been very positive and I'm confident that this game will serve to further consolidate the brand's position in the UK market."

Commenting on this latest release, Paul added: "Sheerluck Holmes is strikingly presented in the popular Frontier cabinet with great walk-up appeal and, in true JPM tradition, literally bristling with features which engage and entertain the player."

A three reel game boasting twin lappers, nudges, pots, streaks, barcodes and a popular double take/leave feature, the game employs full technical regulations, including the new 100% game to game holdover feature.

Feature entry is via criss-crossed feature symbols (27 ways), through a reel win, by achieving a barcode or reverse barcode, or by completing the Super Trail. The main feature game is played on the Board Game and Spins Super Board Game. The cash feature may be awarded from both board games, shots in either of two shot pots, the clue square and bonus and mystery squares. Players may collect 'lucky' horseshoes for the Streak Pot.

Players reaching the Sheerluck Double Take/Leave feature will have the choice of the single Take/Leave Feature, the Double Take/Leave feature or a Jackpot Take/Leave depending on the number of illuminated Sheerluck head symbols.

Other exciting features include Play It Again Bonus which replays the Sheerluck Take/Leave feature, and Cash or Bust for those players on a mystery square who wish to avoid the possibility of a losing mystery outcome.

A once in a game only Win Security feature offers the player with collectable wins the chance to save them for later collection should they continue playing and lose. Also, the Cash Pot randomly increments throughout the game to a maximum of £70 and may be collected when offered to the player.

Sheerluck Holmes has been specifically designed to offer great entertainment for the casual player whilst having considerable depth for the core player. The Frontier cabinet accepts standard bill validators and the Innovative Technology NV11 or JCM Vega note recyclers.
