Cluedo is a very popular murder/mystery board game that was created by Anthony E. Pratt in England 1949. Since then it has become one of the most loved board games and sales are still very high. The concept of the game has inspired numerous films, tv-shows and books. The idea of the game is to figure out whom, where and by which weapon a character has been killed. IGT has taken the classic board game and adapted the concept to the slot reels. Cluedo by IGT has 15 pay lines to cover the 5 reels. The symbols that appear on the reels include the classic Cluedo characters such as Colonel Mustard, Miss Scarlett and Reverend Green.

If you love the old classic mansion murder type of stories, you would really love to play Cluedo by IGT!
Graphics & Sound
IGT has successfully taken the board game to the reels. The graphics are great in detail and very true to the design of the original board game. The main colouring of the game window is dark green which adds to the murder mystery feel to the game. The music score of Cluedo is great; imagine the British crime shows from the 70’s, like Agatha Christie for example, you will get an idea. The overall impression of Cluedo by IGT is a positive one.
The lower paying symbols are the card deck symbols, 9 to Ace. These symbols also have a weapon on them. For example, the Ace is also a revolver and the King is a dagger. There are also the Cluedo character symbols: Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White and Reverend Green.
The Wild is the newspaper symbol and it will substitute for all other symbols except the bonus symbol. If you hit 5 wilds on one payline you will win 25 000 casino credits.
