The jackpot was actually hit from a mobile device, making the action even more exciting. The second largest prize was also won on the mobile version of the slot and it was of €65,437.
The tournament was available across the network of online casinos powered by Yggdrasil and it was the result of the award-winning promotional tools from the developer, called BOOST.

About Holmes and the Stolen Stones
The video slot is based on the story of the popular detective Sherlock Holmes, who is shown in action while looking for the stones. In addition to the bonus game that awards cash wins and the free spins mode, the game also comes with five local progressive jackpots.
Each jackpot is linked to a reel and in order to win it, the player must collect five diamonds of the same color for the corresponding roller. A diamond requires five shards of the same color, which will also trigger 10 free spins every time they are collected. Holmes is joined by Dr. Watson on this mission and normal winning combinations can be formed from left to right on 20 fixed lines.
