Gambling On—or With—Sherlock

Sherlock at the Murder Mansion Slot MachineLast week I was away. Our timeshare offers many things my normal life does not—beaches, drinks with umbrellas in them, someone else making the beds, and gambling. Now, I am not a big gambler. I play penny slots. I sometimes bet as much as fifty cents on a single bet. Woohoo!

Sherlock at the Murder Mansion Slot MachineBut the thing I like best about the penny slots are the bonus rounds. Since slot machines went electronic with touchscreens, these can be very elaborate…ordering food off a menu, picking pirates who will dance for you, having your “rich uncle” read his will to tell you what you’ve been left, even going into the hospital and getting a bill for services rendered.

And on this trip…I solved mysteries on a game called Sherlock at the Murder Mansion. If you get to the bonus round, you get to attempt to “solve a murder.” You have five possible weapons and five suspects. You choose one of each. If you miss, the game gives you a clue you can use to help you the next round. (The clues are things like “the knife was used only for cooking.”) It’s actually quite a bit of fun! Silly, I know, but more entertaining than just watching the wheels go round and round.

  3. Gambling is a fun game and many people play this in their free time. I enjoy seeing some actions of slot machines in the Sherlock holmes series. They explain a lot of strategies that many expert players use.
