Robin Hood’s Heroes is a new casino slot from Just For the Win where we travel to the Sherwood Forest and team up with Robin Hood and his Merry Men. This is, however, not the first time we do that. Back in 2011, NetEnt released Robin Hood Shifting Riches, and after that, we’ve seen games such as Robin Hood’s Wild Forest and Robin Nottingham Raiders. It’s a fitting theme for a slot game since Robin Hood is all about stealing from the rich (casinos) and giving to the poor (us). Hopefully, we can help him achieve that here by landing the 5000x max win!
Robin Hood’s Heroes is a video slot from Just For the Win with 6 reels and a 4-5-5-5-5-4 row setup. The game uses ways instead of paylines, which creates 10,000 ways to win. You can choose between a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 50, so whatever your stake, you’ll find something that suits you. In Robin Hood’s Heroes, you will also be treated with an above-average RTP of 96.05%. It plays at high volatility and offers a max win of 5000x the bet.
To help us steal from the rich, Robin Hood has made sure to provide a bunch of nice features. The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Cash Collect, Cash Grab, Wild Split, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
The game is located in the Sherwood Forest, which not only exists in the stories but is an actual forest in Nottingham, England. However, over 200 types of spiders can be found in it, so we’ll just stick to the game and explore it digitally. It’s a gorgeous setting with sharp graphics combined with happy, adventurous music. This together creates a fantastic atmosphere and a game you can enjoy regardless of how it goes. Happy, upbeat slots are actually not too common, so kudos to JFTW for that.
You can enjoy this game on all standard mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel.
The lower-paying symbols are classic card types: diamonds, clubs, hearts, and spades. A winning combination of 6 with one of these pays 0.5x the bet. Moving on to the middle of the pack, we have a barrel, dagger, and hat. Six of a kind with one of these pays 0.8x-1.5x the bet. The higher-paying symbols include Friar Tuck, Maid Marian, and Robin Hood. Landing 6 of one of these will pay 2x-5x the bet. The wild symbol (W) substitutes for all other paying symbols, enabling more connections. Now, let’s take a look at all the features!
What is the max win in the slot Robin Hood’s Heroes?
You can win up to 5000x the bet.
What features are available in the slot Robin Hood’s Heroes?
The features are Wild Symbol, Wild Split, Scatter Symbol, Cash Collect, Cash Grab, Free Spins, and Bonus Buy.
The Wild Symbol substitutes for all other paying symbols, which excludes Coin Symbol and Scatter Symbol. If you’re unfamiliar, think of it as a joker in card games.
The Wild Split symbol looks a little different with a red background. Landing it will split the wild into 2 to 5 wild symbols, which increases the number of ways.
A golden chest acts as the scatter, and you need 3 or more of it to trigger the free spins.
The Cash Collect feature can be triggered randomly during base game by landing 3, 4, or 5 Money symbols (coins). This will award the total value shown on all Money symbols.
Landing 6 or more Money symbols in the base game triggers the Cash Grab feature, which awards 3 respins. It’s similar to games like Money Train 3, where you reset the spins each time you land a new symbol. During the feature, the following 3 Hero symbols can land:
Doubler: Doubles 3-6 other symbol values.
Adder: Will add the value shown on the Adder symbol to 3-6 other symbols.
Collector: Collects the value of all other symbols.
However, the Hero symbols are only activated every 4 spins, so they won’t do their thing every spin. The feature will end after 3 consecutive spins without landing a new symbol.
Landing 3 Scatter symbols award 7-15 free spins. An additional scatter can result in up to 20 spins. The free spins are straightforward; all Wild symbols are replaced with Wild Split symbols. Landing 2, 3, or 4 scatters during free spins award an additional 2, 4, or 7 free spins, respectively.
If you want to jump straight into the Cash Grab feature, you can do so by buying it. The following 3 options are available:
0 starting Hero symbols: costs 53x the bet.
2 starting Hero symbols: costs 119x the bet.
4 starting Hero symbols: costs 209x the bet.
Before rating the gameplay, we have to give Just For the Win props for the atmosphere. The music is spot on and creates a happy yet adventurous setting. Audio is often overlooked in slot games. ELK Studios is famous for how much effort they put into their music, and it’s given them a lot of attention. Perhaps JFTW is taking the same path, and we will definitely cheer them on!
It’s hard to balance creating a slot game that includes many features with making it easy to understand. We felt like JFTW has accomplished that here. There are two different bonus games, which are both relatively straightforward. We appreciate it when there is more than one bonus game since it gives the game a greater variety. Although none of the bonus games are revolutionary, it doesn’t feel like they are copies or re-skins of features we’ve already seen. This shouldn’t be underestimated because it’s not that easy to come up with unique features, considering how big the iGaming industry has become.
Aside from its fantastic atmosphere and its excellent gameplay, Robin Hood’s Heroes offers a good RTP, high volatility, and a solid max win of 5000x.
Robin Hood’s Heroes takes you on an unforgettable journey through the Sherwood Forest filled with many engaging features!
