This is one of NetEnt’s better releases, not only for the amazing story behind it but also for the interesting set of features. The game is called Robin Hood Shifting Riches after the character that inspired it. It is a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 20 winning ways. Players are definitely going to enjoy the fun adventure just as much as the payouts that it provides.
The game has an amazing story to tell and it is definitely told well. What inspired the providers is everyone’s favorite outlaw Robin Hood. He was not just the classic rebel, but a hero in a lot of ways. Stealing from the rich to give to the poor was one of his mottoes, which is why the amazing archer is so dear to our hearts.
The main scene of events is the Nottingham Forest of course since it was the place where Robin got to prove what he stands for in his battle against the Sheriff. It is autumn, which can be seen from the beautiful orange and yellow leaves. The graphics are pretty high end just like expected from the provider.
The soundtrack is fitted for the theme and sounds very heroic and intense. It makes the player feel like they are preparing to battle the Sheriff together with Robin Hood. The symbols are interesting as well and include the royals as the low-value symbols of the game. The high-value symbols are represented by characters from the story and include a knight in armor, Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marion and non-other than Robin Hood. The wild symbol of the game appears in the form of its logo.
The payouts are going to impress and they go up to 1000 times the stake in the base game. With the help of features, the player has the chance to win up to 5000 times the stake in a single spin. The minimum a player can bet is 0,20 and the maximum is 100 coins per spin. This is a medium volatility game that is perfect for long term play and it also offers a 96,75% RTP which is a great offer.
The features that the game offers are interesting and full of different details that contribute to the story. Just like in most other games, the wild symbol is present here as well and it replaces all other symbols of the game, except the scatter and money bag symbols.
What catches the eye the most, are the 4 treasure chests at the bottom of the reels. Every time a money bag symbol lands on the reels, Robin Hood places it into one of the chests. Once 4 are collected in a chest, the Free Spins feature is triggered and the player is awarded with 10 free spins.
The great thing about the Free Spins feature is that one of the higher paying symbols is selected as an Extra Wild symbol for the duration of the round. This increases the chances of scoring a decent win by a lot. By landing 2 or 3 free spins symbols the player is awarded with 5 or 20 additional free spins. The symbols can only appear on reels 1, 3, and 5.
The game also has a Shifting Reels feature that is triggered every time a winning combination has occurred. The reels shift and a re-spin is triggered increasing the chances of another winning combination happening. The feature also comes with x2, x3, and x5 multipliers that increase with every reel shift.
The theme and the way the providers carried it out is nothing less than great. The game takes the player back to the old times with an amazing intro. Many players will surely take a liking to the game as it offers some creative features and more than decent payouts. It is definitely the game to try out next.
