Robin of Sherwood, from Rabcat, is based on the folklore about the outlaw Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. The developer has put together a brilliant 5 reel and 243 ways-to-win slot where you rob from the rich to give to the somewhat poor – yourself!
Endearing cartoon-style adaptation
Set in Sherwood Forest, England the wonderful background is painted with rolling green hills, lush trees and stone castle with flag swaying in the breeze. The familiar symbols used to make up the higher-value end include Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marian, the evil Sheriff and Robin Hood. The lower-value end is made up of four Royal Flush poker symbols. Fans of nature will enjoy the sound of the birds chirping, scurrying red fox and gentle falling of a leaf. There is also a placid tune that plays during play that is interrupted by the sound of a jubilant audio effect from a win or unlocked feature.
During the base game, any of the Royal flush poker symbols may randomly be marked, transforming all occurrences in the process into wild symbols. We found that we were able to trigger it every so often.
Free Spins with Royal Clearing Feature
Three or more target scatter symbols, on any reel, take you to the Royal Courtyard where you unlock 10 free spins together with the Royal Clearing Feature. Over the course of the free spins, this latter feature removes the lower-value Royal Flush symbols from the reels, one after the other, increasing the likelihood of winning a higher prize. When we tried the game, we did find that we were able to trigger it twice in a short number of spins suggesting it is not impossible to trigger.
The last feature is the gamble where you have a 50-50 chance of double or nothing by selecting whether Robin Hood is to shoot an arrow at a red or a green target. If he misses, then you lose your winnings for that round and the feature ends but if he wins then you double your winnings. You can play up to five consecutive times.
Robin of Sherwood slot has a theoretical return to player of around 95.86% and is considered to be a medium volatility slot. This could mean that you will need to play it longer for a better chance to win a larger prize. You can typically vary the wager size from €0.20 to €40. The game is available on desktop or tablet/mobile using an Android or iOS smartphone.
