The tale of Robin Hood is a classic that's been told in many ways. And Arrow's Edge is presenting yet another version of this centuries-old story through Robin in the Woods slots.
Find out if it's worth exploring yet another Robin Hood variation as we review the main aspects of this 5-reel, 40-payline game.
True to its name, this slot takes place in the woods. You'll see trees lining both sides of the reels along with a number of other trees in the distance. The location clearly represents Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood and his merry men lived.
You'll hear a flute tune in the background that sounds like it could be from any movie about the Middle Ages. Overall, the atmosphere isn't too bad in this game. But it would be nice to see better graphics in the background and symbols.
Speaking of symbols, this game features Robin Hood, Maid Marian, The Sheriff of Nottingham, a wild icon, arrow quiver, locked vault, treasure chest, gold, and several bullseyes.
This slot has 40 fixed pay lines along with a minimum coin size of $0.02 per line. This means that you have to bet at least $0.80 to play the game.
You can adjust your total bet from $0.80 to $240.00. Robin in the Woods also offers an autoplay option that allows you to spin the reels for between 5 and 50 turns. One more nice option is the ability to change the game speed from normal to fast.
Some of the wild symbols offer 2x multipliers, meaning these icons not only substitute for other symbols, but also boost your payouts.
Another feature is the Locked Vault, which is triggered by a combination of two arrow quivers and one locked vault icon. When you get this feature, the reels slide open, Robin Hood shoots an arrow to break the lock, and you receive the prize inside.
The Bullseye feature is unlocked whenever you get arrow quivers on reels 1 and 5 (no locked vault involved). Robin Hood fires three arrows at the reels, which turn into sticky wilds (remain onscreen) for 3 re-spins.
One more feature is the Love and Arrows free spins. This is triggered when three Maid Marian icons land on the reels. At this point, two heart symbols float onto the reels, and you choose one of them to find out what free spins mode you get (Extended Wilds or Sticky Wilds).
Yet one more thing to like about Robin in the Woods is that it offers two progressive jackpots in the Cash Grab and Mystery prizes. The Cash Grab jackpot pays several times per week and usually offers in the range of $2,000 to $5,000. The Mystery Jackpot must pay at exactly $10,000, meaning you should ramp up your play around the $9k mark.
Robin in the Woods isn't the most visually appealing slot that we've ever seen. We'd also like a lower minimum spin cost than $0.80. But this is a must-play game thanks to all of the different features.
You can spin for two progressive jackpots, free spins, re-spins, a Locked Vault, and wild symbols with multipliers. Robin in the Woods does a great job of presenting all these features through firing arrows and other means. In summary, this slot is a good representation of the Robin Hood tale and is definitely worth a try.
