Unlock Watson for a guaranteed mystery symbol for a chance to win big and unlock the mighty Sherlock Holmes for a guaranteed 117,649 Max Megaways™ outcome for incredible win potential.

Voice actors have also been used to add an extra layer of excitement to the game, with players becoming willing participants in one of the most engaging crime stories ever written, while also staying true to the thrilling Twisted Tales narrative.

Global gaming powerhouse William Hill went live with Moriarty Megaways™ during a 10-day exclusivity period in the first week of May.

In line with its mantra of ‘Serious Fun’ and values of curiosity, passion and respect which are crucial to delivering amazing experiences, iSoftBet hosted a Moriarty themed virtual murder-mystery event for customers, prospective clients and the media yesterday. ‘Team Holmes’, composed of senior industry professionals from operators Betsson, LeoVegas and PokerStars and industry media CasinoBeats and SlotBeats, won a mystery box each filled with exciting prizes.

Hosted by the dastardly Professor himself, iSoftBet gathered a selection of tier one guests to examine the game in detail and engage in a rapid-fire slot tournament. This was followed by a murder mystery event with guests split into teams to crack one of Holmes’ famous cases, with each person enjoying a game-themed hamper finished off with a ‘Dark & Secret’ cocktail in line with one of iSoftBet’s core values of curiosity.

iSoftBet has released nine Megaways through to Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways title, Aztec Gold Megaways™.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games, iSoftBet, said: “We’ve been waiting for this moment all year and I’m delighted with the results. Moriarty combines more excitement and more features than we’ve ever included in a game, and thrill seeking, big win potential players will love what we’ve done by combining unique iSoftBet features with the hugely popular Megaways™ mechanic.

“Our Twisted Tales games have proved a massive hit and this game takes in game excitement to new levels with so many ways to win big, plus our launch is perfectly timed with Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.”
