Net Entertainment has a number of themed video slot machines and covers every kind of imagination and taste. Robin Hood is one of the most known and loved tales of a bandit who stole from the rich to give to the poor, something that displeased the king. Robin along with his team that was popularly known as his ‘merry men’ would waylay the kingdom’s soldiers whenever they transported riches and they would be attacked and robbed. Robin was loved because all the money and valuable collected as taxes was given back to the people.
The story of Robin Hood has been interpreted differently over time. It is said that Robin was believed to be from different places such as Loxley, York and Wakefield. All these places, we can agree, are located in England. However, some theories suggest that Robin Hood was an alias for someone. Others believe that Robin Hood was a term that thieves called themselves. It is said that the original tales of Robin Hood were written in song or what was known as ‘ballads’. The reason why the story took dozens of turns was because the original ballads were not put down in record. The Robin Hood video slot machine captures the popular tale of this outlawed hero right down to the graphics, animations and sounds.
How to play:
The Robin Hood Shifting Riches video slot machine is a humorous and highly animated video slot machine that offers you high chances of winning with its unique game features. The game is a 5 reel, 20 payline game that allows you to place a maximum 6 coin payline bet which means that you can win a 200 maximum bet per game. The video slot machine has controls to select coin value and bet level, the same as with Secret of Horus, another NetEnt masterpiece. The main controls allow you to Spin, Autoplay and place a Max Bet.
Shifting Reels Feature:
The reason why this is one of the few games that give you a chance to win big is because of its Shifting Reels feature. After every winning spin, reel 1 from the left shifts and a new reel comes in its place and re-spins the same round. The more winning spins, the more the reels shift. For each reel shift, the multiplier level goes up. You can get up to X5 Multiplier in this feature. When you do not spin a winning round, the multiplier resets back to 1X and the game continues.
Regular Robin Hood Symbols:
The regular symbols are themed around the story and some of them include the A, J, Q, K and 10 symbols. The other symbols are popular characters in the story such as Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlett, Little John (who is the complete opposite of his name no matter what remake film you watch) and the evil Knight. These symbols will combine or are substituted by the scatter and wild symbols to create winning combinations. What is interesting about the character symbols is the fact that after a winning spin, they animate and their actions are quite hilarious and interesting.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The Wild Symbol is a green Robin Hood symbol. The wild symbol does not substitute the scatter symbol or activate the free spin bonus round.
The Scatter Symbol is a money bag and it can appear on any of the 5 reels. 4 or more scatter symbols will trigger the free spin bonus round and you can get a minimum of 10 free spins.
Robin Hood Free Spin Bonus Round
The free spin bonus round is activated after 4 or more scatter symbols are spun. These are usually in a treasure chest. You can have more than one chest at the beginning of this round and all of them award you 10 free spins. In this round there is an extra wild symbol and this can be any of the character symbols. This is used to substitute the other symbols except the money bag scatter symbol. Free spin symbols are only visible on reels 3 to 5 and you do not get to see the scatter symbol in this round. You will instead spin and when you see a +2 symbol, you get awarded 2 more free spins. At the end of all the free spins, the game returns to normal.
