Because every hero should be changed and evolve throughout the ages, we get the female version of the most famous outlaw in history as the Lady Robin Hood mobile slot machine.
We are not sure if Bally technologies meant to be genuine with the Lady Robin Hood mobile slot. Have they invented a whole back-story where Maid Marian takes the mantle of her recently befallen beloved and continues his work to help the poor? Or is this just a way to put boobs on a now traditional slot game figure?
We are going to pretend it’s the first one, because it makes rating the Lady Robin Hood slot game a little easier. Mostly because it happens to have one of the better looking Bally slot games, with high card symbols sharing the screen with golden swords, flagons of expensive ale, flowing purse strings and flying arrows across your screen. So they should be rewarded for that, rather than criticised.
Yes, it still looks like a land-based slot machine trying to force itself into the online casino slots world, much like Havana Cubana by the same provider. So don’t expect flashy or sharp graphics, but entertainment and some Vegas fun.
You get plenty of wild symbols during the base game – you even get some random arrows thrown at the screen, up to eight at a time, which can be profitable if timed right.
But ultimately, that’s all mostly for show to keep you entertained as you spin the five reels, hoping that this fair lady will finally free you from poverty and give you riches beyond belief.
Well, she won’t, because she’s fair and likes to give everyone a little something, so your budget will stay pretty steady and you’ll be able to play a remarkably long time on a fairly conservative budget.
But, everyone in a while, this Lady Robin Hood video slot take the money off other rich suckers and will give you poor gamblers a doozy of a win. And it’s all about the free spin feature.
The maximum you can expect to win during these 10 free rounds is a generous 200x your bet. We’ve seen it happen, so don’t get jaded – that’s how you end up with the surname ‘Nottingham’ in this tale.
Because it is a tale of hope. You start with 10 free spins, and through collecting arrowheads you can turn reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 into expanded wilds. Add that the top paying symbol (The lady herself) comes stacked, and we’ve come pretty darn close to that top paying amount.
Granted, mostly you’ll be happy with about 50x your bet and just a couple of sticky wild reels, and more times than we’d like to admit we were bitterly disappointed with a measly 10x our bet on the free spins.
But hope is what brings you back to the Lady Robin Hood mobile casino game, as you hope to catch just the right wild reel and get all the gold that hides in this medieval but lively game.

Wilds: The word WILD sitting on a script paper is the wild symbol. Can't get clearer than that. It replaces all other symbols except the bonus symbol.
Arrow Mystery Wild Feature: At any point during the base game, you may get anything from 2 to 8 arrows fly onto your screen as the reels spin.
Wherever the arrows land you'll get a wild symbol. Mostly we find that they come in three or fours, which at best gives you a top up to your budget. You don't start seeing some decent wins here until you get all 8 on the screen.
They also work slightly differently than the normal wilds, in that if a scatter symbol lands on where the wild arrow landed, it still counts as both a scatter and a wild symbol - so you never miss out on free spins.
Free Spins Feature: You'll have to get three Lady Robin Hood slot emblems on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger 10 free spins. It's not easy, but it's where the big wins lie.
You'll be awarded with 10 free spins for your trouble and a multiplier of 2x as standards. This isn't what's the most interesting about this feature.
On top of reel 2, 3,4 and 5 lies a shield with four sections. At the start of the round you get a bullseye, in which three arrows are fired. Equally, during the free spins, you get extra 'arrow' symbols, which are fired onto that bullseye.
Hit the same target four times and you get the whole corresponding reel as a sticky wild for the remainder of the free spin game.
You have to hit reel 2 and/or 3 as an expanded sticky wild fairly early on during this slots bonus game feature in order to walk away with anything decent. Otherwise you might just get 2x your bet and sob gently into your flagon of ale.
But if you hit all the right targets and get all four reels as expanded sticky wilds, you are guaranteed several five of a kind wins which will turn you from rich to poor faster than you can say "holy crap, Robin Hood has boobs!"
Despite our misgiving about the theme, this Lady Robin Hood mobile slot game works. It won't make you rich beyond your dreams, but it could end up helping to pay for a nice little getaway and will certainly keep you playing.
