Robin Hood is at it again – robbing the rich to give to the poor, or hopefully, to you. This Rival Gaming product is actually one of the developer’s I-Slots, meaning that you get to advance through multiple stages and locations in the game map as you continue playing. So, if you’re ready to go on an exciting adventure, this game is just the ticket.

Taking place on a standard five-reel, three-row interface, the game is also imbued with 20 pay lines. They’re not set in place though, and neither is the bet. To change the bet you can choose a coin value between 1p and 25p first. Then, bring up to 10 of these coins into play per active line for a maximum bet possibility of £50 per spin.

Perhaps one of the best parts about Sherwood Forest Fortunes is immersive graphics. The background takes you into the forest, while the symbols upon the reels are present in the form of a sword, a bag of gold, a traditional lute, a crown, and a couple of characters from Robin Hood, such as Friar Tuck and Little John. It’s the Sheriff of Nottingham that is the slot’s highest paying standard symbol though, as he has the ability to pay out up to 10,000x your bet.

Special Features

Maid Marion

As well as robbing from the rich to feed the poor, Robin Hood had romantic entanglements with one Maid Marian, too. It’s the fine young maiden herself that operates as this game’s free spins scatter symbol. This means that whenever three or more Maid Marian symbols come into view anywhere on the reels, the free spins round begins.

You’ll be given five free spins for the appearance of three scatters, 10 free spins for four appearing, and 25 free spins if five scatters should come into view. All wins that you form during this round will receive a triple multiplier as well.

Arrows

Robin Hood was also known for utilising his bow and arrow effectively. It’s fortunate then, that in this I-Slot the quill of arrows is the symbol that operates as its bonus trigger. Again, this is a scatter addition, meaning that regardless of where it shows up on the reels, it can still activate the bonus round. You’ll need to ensure that you spin three or more of this symbol into view for the bonus round to start. However, playing through it gives you the chance to really boost your win balance.

Not only do you get the chance to experience a wonderful side game for the bonus round, but you also have the ability to advance along the game’s storyline, too. You can keep track of where you are by using the “Game Map” button at the top-right side of the reels. Prior to the various different sections of the map, you’ll also get a video package to introduce the next part of the story.

Robin Hood

And what would a slot game about Robin Hood be without an appearance by the man himself? As it happens, you needn’t worry about whether or not he shows up, because he can appear quite frequently on reels one, three, and five.

Robin is actually the game’s wild symbol, and he appears in stacks that can cover all positions on a single reel. Being a wild symbol, he can count as any other standard symbol in Sherwood Forest Fortunes, assisting you with creating winning combinations as he does.
