Everybody’s favourite Nottinghamshire outlaw is back once again and he’s feeling particularly lucky in the Robin Hood and His Merry Wins slot game. But does Robin take from the rich gaming developers and give to the plucky players? Let’s take a look..
Robin Hood And His Merry Wins takes place amid a mysterious woodland backdrop and on a traditional 5×3 playboard, packed with standard playing card values, such as ‘10s’ and ‘Ks’ alongside an assortment of protagonist kings and heroic good guys and princesses.
Players on both ends of the staking spectrum will be pleased to know that punters of all sizes are taken care of in the wagering department, with a minimum bet of $€£0.20 and a max wager of $€£200 per spin.
95% continues to be the minimum RTP threshold that most players look out for when selecting a slot game and we’re pleased to report that Robin Hood And His Merry Wins comes in at a very respectable 96%, and during our testing session we experienced a fairly modest volatility, which should mean that players get plenty of spins, twists and turns out of their playing budgets.
Picking up regulation wins is a piece of cake, with players just needing to match up three adjacent symbols one of the game’s 20 paylines. The smallest wins come when you land matching ‘10s’ but there are some very solid premium wins on offer, such as a $€£2000 prize if you can pick up five Robin Hood logos. Not bad for an evening’s work…
The backdrop and playing symbols are all a bit samey and don’t really offer much in the way of uniqueness. The soundtrack is a cute, mythical tune, but again, our ears have heard something similar many times before, and we were left reaching for the mute button after a short while.
Have your wits about you for the Marian’s Prize and On The Mark bonus games, which are what provide players with that all-important extracurricular fun on the side of your regulation gameplay. On The Mark triggers at random and offers some spicy multipliers, while Marian’s Prize is a fun bonus game that sees players search for merry men behind a range of “Wanted” posters, with bonuses on offer for each rogue you pick up along the way. A free spins round is also on offer if you land at least three Free Spins symbols anywhere on the playboard.
Robin Hood And His Merry Wins is a decent enough game on a superficial level, but experienced slot players may feel a bit underwhelmed by aesthetics that are nothing new to the market. That said, the game has some solid backend numbers, while their bonus games are fun and can pack a decent punch on the bonus side of things.
