Come down to Sherwood Forest and help Robin Hood rob the rich to feed the poor - he might hand out some Free Spins too! In this NetEnt slot based on the classic folk tale, we meet some of the most well-known characters including Maid Marian and Robin Hood himself, and there’s a definite medieval theme with the typeface used and the folk music too.
It looks like it’s the autumn, as the leaves are turning brown, so there’s no time like the present to help Robin Hood out. In Robin Hood: Shifting Riches, you’ll have to shift those riches all the way home!
How to play
If you’re hoping to win some money (to give to the poor in true Robin Hood fashion, of course) you’ve got 20 paylines on which to match symbols. There are 5 reels, but as the name of the slot suggests, there’s something a bit ‘shifty’ about them. Yes, after you get a line win, the reels will all shift so you might get extra wins on the same spin! There’s an increasing Multiplier too, so after 1 reel shift it’ll be x2, moving up to x3 after 2 shifts, and then x5 when you make it to 3 or more.
The Wild symbol doesn’t pay out, but substitutes for all paying symbols - comfortably the most valuable are Robin Hood and Maid Marian, as with the former you can win a maximum of £50 on a £1 bet, without any Shifting Reels and increasing Multipliers! Other characters make appearances too, so you’ll see Little John and Friar Tuck, and then we can’t forget about the low-value symbols either.
Getting cash is the aim of the game, so collecting 4 Money Bags symbols shouldn’t be too difficult. If you manage it, you’ll win Free Spins! All Money Bags are saved for a year after your last round, so once you’ve collected 4 in a chest, you’ll be good to go. Simply click a chest to see the bet level and coin value of each Money Bag collected, as this will determine the coin value on your Free Spins.
Money Bags turn into Wild symbols after the reels shift too, so grab them before they go! Should you find 2 or 3 Free Spins symbols while on the bonus round, you’ll get an extra 5 or 10 Free Spins respectively, and one of the character symbols will be randomly chosen as the Extra Wild during Free Spins too - it’ll substitute for every symbol apart from the Free Spins symbol.
