Playtech’s Robin Hood themed video slot game revolves around the life of the legend and his band of marauders, the merry men. It was said that they were chased into the forest as outlaws by the wicked ways of the Sherriff of Nottingham. The brave archer plundered the homes of the wealthy to feed the poor and set right the wrongs that had been imposed on the lower classes.
With 243 paylines and 5 reels, this slot is very rewarding, both in winning combinations and in entertaining graphics and sound effects. The sound track gives a real ambiance to the game with realistic arrow sound effects.
243 paylines can be confusing to slots players who are used to being able to activate only select paylines. Playtech has become wise and realized that seasoned gamblers want all paylines enabled so automatically when you spin you are playing all 243 ways. Increasing or decreasing your bet is done in two other ways. The first way is by changing the coin size starting at 1c. The second way to increase your bet by the number of coins you bet. No matter how many coins you bet these coins are placed as a lump sum across all 243 ways so there is no chance that any winning combination will go unpaid.
The golden archer is the wild is symbolic of the gallant and generous hero from days gone by as it bravely stands in for any symbol to form a paying combination and distribute the loot. The scatter is the 2 crossed arrows. Three or more scatters shot on target will trigger 7 free spins complements of the heroic outlaw himself.
Other symbols include his beloved Maid Marian, the wise old Friar Tuck and some face card symbols from a pack of playing cards.
Some of the symbols have a neat border made up of arrows. If one of these special symbols appears in a winning combination with a scatter anywhere on the screen Playtech’s fun animated Expand and Split Feature takes over. This is where the bordered symbol expands down the reels and divides the other symbols into two. Now with more symbols there are more chances of winning!
As already mentioned the generous hood will reward you with seven free spins. During the spins the scatter remains in play so you can have another free spins round within free spins, the ultimate ideal! The game is set up to allow you to play free spins even during free spins and infinite amount of times, a very open handed gesture indeed!
Every spin that pays you a win can be gambled. When you click the gamble button your screen changes and you are presented with a choice between red or black. Choose the correct color and your win is doubled. Continue to gamble your winnings and you will have the chance to quadruple your winnings if you choose the correct suit out of a pack of cards.
