Can anyone think of a famous hero that loved to use a bow to steal from the rich and give to the poor? The Robyn slot from Genesis Gaming has a distinct hint of the Robin Hood about it, but in typical Genesis style there is a serious twist. Robyn is a teenage girl, though this doesn’t seem to be hindering her in the use of her bow in this five reel, 243 Ways outing that takes us deep into the forest in search of adventure.
Robyn may be an expert shot with the bow, but blinking heck does she look like she needs to cheer up. Well, we did say she was a teenager. Her adventures in the woods see her scamper along on her trusted Horse with a handsome Prince, watched over seemingly benevolently by the Harlequin Queen. The usual 9s through Aces make up the low-paying symbols, though obviously the less of those we see the better. This wild wood yields a Wild in the shape of a helpful Wild symbol, conducting the usual substitution duties, while the Robyn Game Logo is our Scatter which is our key to the bonus features.
The 243 Ways pay structure makes the betting interface super simple. Without traditional paylines we must simply match three or more adjacent symbols from left-to-right, so therefore we don’t need to choose how many coins or lines we want to play, just a simple bet-per-spin.
Aside from our game symbols, from spin to spin the reels pepper with red targets. In the base game this is cue for Robyn and her bow to appear at the bottom right of the reel case and shoot arrows across the screen. Robyn‘s arrows always hit their target, transforming them into random symbols and potentially transforming non-winning spins into triumphant ones.
These targets have extra significance during the Free Spins Feature, winning us 12 free spins and launched when we land three or more Game Logo Scatters across the reels. Now, not only do we have 12 free spins to boost our bank book, the targets reveal Wilds rather than random symbols. I personally don’t care how moody Robyn is if she can hit those targets like Luke Skywalker with a blindfold in a swamp. Or like Robin Hood. That’ll do too, pig. That’ll do.
Robyn’s sultry chops aside, she comes up with the goods when it really matters, i.e. when it comes to boosting our wins. The simple 243 Ways betting structure and ready freshness thanks to Robyn‘s random target practice give us plenty to grapple with on our adventure through the misty, magical forest.
