Robin of Sherwood Slots is a beautifully rendered game that looks better than it has any right to be, and plays as classically as the tale it was based on. It doesn’t take many risks, but there’s something to be said for a good slot well done in this day and age of half assed attempts at false grandeur. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they worked in some more innovative gameplay elements when it came to the jackpots to fill out our wallets a bit more. Steal from the slot and give to the poor we always say, and we can always use more loot.
If you like what you see, skip the review and give the game a go. It’s pretty great, and we think anyone will be in for a treat wit hit.
The premise of Robin of Sherwood Slots is the classic tale now perverted by Disney to be about nobility and class issues. In the original tale, Robin Hood actually stole from the government and gave it back to the people. Authenticity issues aside, this game is based on the vague images we all have of the tale now, and it’s still a great character no matter who he’s robbing.
Graphics in Robin of Sherwood Slots are better looking than a perfect 10. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. Each picture looks like a professional took hours to do it, maybe even days, being full paintings done with expert craftsmanship. The colors are to die for, and they really captured the feel of a forest in the backdrop. Even the UI looks better than 99% of slots. We can’t get over how great this game looks, and feel most people are of like mind with us on that.
Gameplay in Robin of Sherwood Slots is fairly standard, in line with the age of the tale. At 5 reels and 243 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $2, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $40, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review. We wish it was a little more high rolling, but you can always play longer, so there’s that.
The bonus round is called Wild Turning Feature, which we enjoyed, but not as much as the captivating visuals.

In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors.
