Microgaming has been in the online gambling scene for quite some time and while it may seem like the age of innovation in regards to online gaming is practically over, the company still often manages to surprise their fans and slot machine enthusiasts with some additional slot games dress in various themes. The most recent addition into their pretty neat portfolio of themed online slots machines is titled “Robin of Sherwood” and it takes players to a forest in England where Robin Hood, the most famous and “noble” criminal lives.
Developed by Rabcat, Microgaming’s Robin of Sherwood online slot sees a band of merry men helping the players to trigger special wild symbols, free spins, and a Gamble Game feature. There are certainly a number of slot machines that are based on the exciting adventures of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, but Robin of Sherwood is a total re-imagination of the story laid out in a graphically rich manner with cool features and captivating designs just like all other Microgaming offerings albeit with a touch of an amazing array of extra features.
The forest is vividly depicted and players can even see characters from Robin Hood’s story in the reels. In general, expect nothing less than the ultimate cross-over of exciting adventure and great storytelling.
“Our striking depiction of the legendary Robin of Sherwood delivers a cutting-edge gaming experience packed with thrilling features, flawless character animations, and a volley of winning opportunities. We are delighted to supply Microgaming with exclusive gaming content that hits the mark with players and operators alike,” commented Rabcat founder and chief executive Thomas Schleischitz.
Robin of Sherwood is a 5 by 3 slot with 234 pay lines and is filled with cartoon images of the story’s characters, as well as arrows, targets, and flags. The online slot’s playing card symbols are represented in the form of colorful flags with lower-value wins being claimed when 3 or more land in any of the places adjacent reels from the left side. Robin, Friar, the Sheriff, Little John and Maid Marion return higher prizes while the arrows are a wild symbol that can act as any of the previously mentioned symbols and therefore be used to complete combinations.
The game’s Wild Turning feature is also one of the game’s best highlights – when it is triggered, players will see Robin Hood ordering his men to fire arrows into selected reels and when the arrows hit the reels they turn into Wilds. These Wilds will increase a player’s chances of winning great prizes significantly.
Furthermore, landing three or more scatter symbols will trigger the extra spins feature. This earns a player ten additional free spins.
Another special feature that players should look out for is the Gamble Game which allows players to gamble their loot and double its size – you could also lose it all, so be careful with this one. With the Gamble Game, the player gets to choose a green or red target and Robin will then try to hit either of them. If he hits the one you selected, your loot is doubled, otherwise, you lose it all. It is that simple!
