The wombat says: Now then wombat fans, this game isn’t one of NetEnt’s newest (try the Druid´s Dream slot if you want an example of their later games), but it’s good ‘un and it’s finally playable on mobile, which is why it ended up in our (sp)inbox ready to review.
Robin Hood Shifting Riches slot is based on the legend of that eponymous character and his band of merry men, who stole from the rich to give to the poor. Now this is kind of folktale this wombat can really get behind! So much so, in fact, that I think I´ll also have a little spin on the Riches of Robin slot from Play ´n GO after this….
The play takes place against a backdrop of Sherwood Forest, so grab your bow and get ready to shoot down some wins…
Look and Feel
From the movie-style intro, to the illustrated characters on the reels, the graphics here are pretty awesome. Your reels are set in Sherwood Forest in autumn, and as the main characters land on the reels, they’ll pop out from behind the symbols; with Maid Marian showing off her skills with a dagger while Robin fires off a few arrows. This wombat also likes the rollicking romp of soundtrack, that speeds up as you prepare for a win and the pinging and twanging effects of bow and arrows.
Robin Hood Shifting Riches slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines which puts it in the same bracket as the Wonder Woods slot machine– maybe it´s that forest theme. Your symbols on the reels include some patchwork playing cards, the 10, J, Q, K & A while the higher value icons are a knight in armour, that baldie monk Friar Tuck, Little John, Maid Marion with some daggers and dashing Robin himself. He is by far the most rewarding symbol with 4 or 5 across a pay-line giving you 15x or 50x times your stake.
The Robin Hood Shifting Riches game logo is the Wild icon, and substitutes for most other symbols and the money bag icon is your bonus symbol.
After a win, the reels will shift to the right one spot and be replaced by a new reel on the left to give you the chance for more wins. On top of this, the multiplier will increase with each successive win up to a maximum of x5 (look at the handy gauge at top of the reels to see where you’re at).
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Setting off the Free Spins in this game is unusual…
Land a bag of money icon on any reel and Robin Hood will drop the bag into a chest at the bottom of the reels. FYI: Wombat fans the money bag symbols turn into Wilds after the reels shift.
Collect 4 bags in one chest and you’ll activate the Free Spins Bonus Round – offering us lucky players 10 free spins. Next, one of the character symbols in the base game is selected as an Extra Wild during the round – giving you extra wins. Plus, the bonus can also be re-triggered by landing 2x or more free spins symbols, giving you another additional 5 or 10 spins!
Which is just bonza as far as we’re concerned.
Robin Hood Shifting Riches slot looks the business and is jam-packed with unique features and some cool ways of notching up wins. But getting hold of the 4 money bags is not an easy task, meaning the Free Spins could be a bit elusive.
Wombat score: 4/5
This game is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that chaps! Why not try Riches of Robin slot from Play’n GO instead?
