The legend of Robin Hood has been around for centuries now. There’s been plenty of TV shows, movies (serious and comedies) and now we have the slot game. This comes from NetEnt and includes some great features that can help increase your account balance. It’s far safer than robbing the rich to give to the poor.
‘Robin Hood’ is a five-reel game that has a total of three rows of symbols and twenty paylines to try and win some money on. The backdrop to the reels has a fair few leaves on show so that indicates we’re deep in Sherwood Forest planning how to make the Sheriff of Nottingham’s life even more miserable.
Playing the game costs between £0.20 and £200 so whether you’re playing for fun or trying to win some big cash prizes you’ll have no problems finding a level to bet at.
The symbols in the game are a mixture of those that are theme-related and some that aren’t. We get some of the Merry Men with Friar Tuck who is enjoying a tankard of beer and Little John making an appearance. There’s some animation with Little John who gives a knight in armour a good headbutting and Will Scarlett. Also we have a Maid Marion symbol, a knight in armour and of course Mr Hood himself. Five Robin Hood symbols will win you 1000x your line bet. There’s also the Ten to Ace playing card symbols which are the lowest paying symbols in this game.
The Robin Hood logo is the wild and this can substitute for other symbols in the game to help get you some winning combinations. It can’t substitute for the free spins symbol or the money bag.
The Shifting Reels can certainly help build up that account balance of yours. When you are lucky enough to get a winning combination, the fifth reel suddenly goes to the right and another reel appears on the left. This changes the reels of course so they need to be reassessed and if you’re lucky it will have created another win for you. If that’s the case then the process is repeated and again the reels are looked at again to see if there’s any wins. A bonus is that there’s a multiplier attached, a second win takes it up to 2x, the third 3x and another takes you up to the maximum of 5x. After the shifting reels, the money bag becomes a wild.
You need to collect four of the money bag symbols in the treasure chest in order to get some free spins. It might take a while to do this but the game will remember how many you’ve managed to get and will do that for a year if needed. During the free spins one character will become wild and that obviously increases your chances of getting more wins. It’s also possible to get more free spins if two or more of the free spin symbols come along. Two get you five more free spins and three see you get ten.
This is another great little game from NetEnt. The Shifting Reels can certainly do wonders for your account balance. Getting into the free spins round isn’t that easy but very worthwhile when you do. The theme is well adhered to, there’s an autoplay feature you can set and it’s definitely recommended.
