How to Play
After a nifty intro sequence, you’ll be engrossed in this tale of Robin Hood. In fact, it’s easy to mistake it for a blockbuster animated movie, it’s got that type of look and feel. If you’re familiar with playing NetEnt slots then you’ll be able to get stuck in straightaway, with all the usual spin and betting buttons in a similar location.
If you’re not, then don’t worry, the clearly laid out buttons can’t be missed. Key to winning on this slot is the Shifting Reels mechanic which lets you win multiple ones on just one single spin – more on that in the bonus section.
Intricately designed, the main symbols comprise of the card values, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, making up the low value symbols. The high payers boast even better design, with the famous Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men making up the rest of the symbols. That includes a Knight, Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marian and Robin Hood, who pays out 50 times your stake for five of a kind. Even better, he lets you keep it rather than giving it to the poor! The Game Logo is the game’s Wild, substituting for all other symbols.
The graphics make this slot entertaining enough… but when the bonus features kick in, things really ramp up a gear.
