Robin Hood is a video slots game based on the famous thief, set in medieval England. The game has been designed and released by Net Entertainment, commonly known in the US and worldwide simply as NetEnt. Robin Hood has been well-designed, with smooth and high quality graphics as well as various animation sequences.
Some of the characters, for example, engage in an animated show whenever a winning combination is landed and players are rewarded with a prize payout. The game has a 96.8% payout percentage, and prizes are increased due to various features, including the money bags feature, free spins, wild symbols, and shifting reels. Players can play on five reels, three rows, and adjustable pay lines, ranging from one to twenty.
The Money Bags Feature
The Money Bags feature of the NetEnt Robin Hood video slots game is basically a free spins feature that is activated through scatter symbols. If players land four money bags, depicted in a chest, then they will be rewarded with ten free spins. Each additional money bag chest at the beginning of the free spins round will add an additional ten free spins to the round.
Before the free spins round begins, players will need to choose a character that will function as an additional wild symbol during the free spins round. This symbol will then be used to substitute any of the other symbols, except for the free spins symbols, in order to help complete winning pay lines and get the highest possible payout prizes. The wild symbol in the free spins round can only appear on the third, fourth, and fifth reels.
The Shifting Reels Feature
Net Entertainment’s Robin Hood video slots game also has a shifting reels function, which players in the US may experience every time they land a winning combination. Once a win is made, the reel will move one position to the right. A new reel will then appear on the left. This will continue as long as winning combinations are repeatedly landed. For each shift to the right, a multiplier value will be applied, with a maximum multiplier value of five times.
If players still continue landing winning combinations after the five time multiplier has been reached, then these wins will stay on a five time multiplier. The shifting reels function will stop once no more winning combinations are landed. When this happens, players return to the base game. A further winning combination will re-activate the shifting reels function, again starting at the one time multiplier.
The Robin Hood Wild Symbols
While players have the additional character wild during the free spins feature, there is also a wild symbol that may be applied during the base game. These wild symbols may substitute any of the other symbols, except for the money bag symbols, in order to help players complete as yet incomplete pay lines, make up the best winning combinations, and receive the highest payouts.
Wild symbols can only appear on the first, second, third, and fourth reels before the shifting reel function begins. During the free spins round, the wild symbols can only appear on the third, fourth, and fifth reels.
