How to Win Big on Sherlock Bones - Rolling Respins

trigger rolling spins

To trigger the Rolling Respins, players are required to land a Wild symbol anywhere on the reels. Once a Wild has landed, the cogs beneath the reels will spin until a bone appears and lands underneath the Wild. This will trigger the Rolling Respin.

Once the feature is activated, players will receive a respin until a win lands. Once the win has been awarded the sticky wild will transform to a walking wild moving one position to the left, as well as, the reels increasing by 1 reel in height.

This will continue until a bone does not land beneath the Wild symbol, resulting in the Wild symbol to expand by one position upwards. The Wild symbol will not stick and no further respins will be awarded.
