Detective Dee is an online game from Iconic Gaming slots. It has 50 paylines and five reels with an unknown RTP and an unknown variance. The theme has been inspired by Asia, and there are bonus features such as a wild symbol and free spins with an expanding symbol.

Detective Dee Review Introduction 

Detective Dee is a hodge podge of a game from Iconic Gaming slots. It takes themes from Asian culture, and players have the chance of winning up to 1000x their total bet. With 500 free spins on offer along with expanding wild symbols, we hope to see that this game could have some sort of potential. You can play this as one of the free slots that are available here at Slots Temple. 

Overall Theme 

In terms of a detective-themed game, you’re not going to find that here. In fact, the title seems to have nothing to do with the game, which is disappointing. Instead, you have an Asian-themed game with reels filled with different weapons. In the background is a building, along with a tree that is shedding its leaves. We’re guessing that the wild symbol is meant to be Detective Dee, but he seems to be more aggressive than your normal everyday detective. This could be something that is popular in Asian culture, but to us, it just doesn’t seem to make much sense. If you are looking for a detective game that does it a lot better than this one, try Holmes and the Stolen Stones

Detective Dee RTP and Variance

Another thing that doesn’t bode well for Detective Dee is that we have no idea what sort of maths model it has. There is no RTP or variance available for the game, so we don’t know the risk or reward that are involved with playing it. It’s possible that this information could be released at a later date, but as this isn’t a brand-new game, it’s not very likely. 

How to Play Detective Dee

If you do want to play the game out of curiosity, you can find out how to do so below. 

  1. Change your bets by clicking on the big plus and minus buttons at the bottom of the screen, which are on either side of the spin. This will scroll through all of the bets the game has available. 
  2. Use the large spin button to spin the reels once for your chosen bet. 
  3. The light grey button at the top of the right side of the screen will make the reels spin on their own. 
  4. To the left side of the screen are the controls, where you can access the slot information, toggle the music and sound, and go back to the home screen. 

Bet Sizes & Paytable Wins

The betting range in Detective Dee is actually quite large, starting out with the minimum bet of one coin per spin. The maximum bet is 500 coins for each spin, but this should only ever be used when playing for free or if you can afford it. 

The paytable shows that you can land symbols across an active payline from three to five at a time in order to receive a cash prize. Below we have detailed the top prizes available for each symbol. 

J & Q - 2x multiplier 

K - 3x multiplier

Ace & Needles - 4x multiplier 

Ring - 5x multiplier 

Sabre - 6x multiplier 

Sword - 10x multiplier 

Sword and Sheath - 16x multiplier 

Wild - 20x multiplier

Bonus - 100x multiplier 

Detective Dee Bonus Features

Wild Symbol 

In addition to rewarding the player a 20x multiplier for landing five wild symbols anywhere on the reels, it can also replace all other symbols apart from the bonus. This has the potential to form more winning combinations. 

Free Spins 

Landing three, four or five bonus symbols on the reels will get you 10, 15 or 25 free spins respectively. More bonus symbols can land during the round, which will reward you with additional free spins. The limit is 500, so this is the maximum amount of free spins you are allowed to win. 

The wild symbol becomes an expanding wild in the free spins round. It can still replace all of the symbols we mentioned above but can expand to cover an entire row, which means that there is the chance of forming more wins. 

Our Verdict 

Detective Dee is a weird one for us. The theme and concept don’t seem to match up, and the graphics need a lot of work. The bonus features are sparse, even though the free spins round has expanding wild symbols, which does make it more lucrative. Overall, this game will be down to your own personal preference. From playing it ourselves, we wouldn’t recommend playing this game for real money because there is no maths model information available.

What is the top prize I can win from these reels?
