Join Robin and his Merry Men as he takes away from the royals and gives back to the common folk in this Robin of Sherwood mobile slot.
The tale of Robin Hood is probably one of the most well known around the world; next to King Arthur and his knights of the roundtable.
And Rabcat studios have managed to create a charming rendition of this classic tale, with a very classic take on this Nottingham woodland, similar in feel to their Gnome Wood slot game.
You have Maid Marian, Little John, Friar Tuck and Robin as the high paying symbols. Meaning the lower paying symbols are represented by the Ace to Jack or ‘our royals’.
If you know nothing else about Robin of Sherwood, it’s that he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. In this case, he does that by ambushing one of the reels and turning all the ‘royals’ into wild symbols.
Mostly that gives you a wild reel from time to time in the base game, which makes a nice little change in this 5×3 reels slot.
It’s fun to watch Robin take out the Royals to help give you riches but, to be honest, it’s mostly little amounts that might keep you spinning a little more, it’s rarely anything to get you jumping for joy about.
Where you have some hope for big wins is during the free spin bonus stage.
That’s because you are taken straight to Nottingham Castle to beat the sheriff in a dastardly game of archery.
Every 2 spins, Robin will remove one of the royal symbols from the reels. Which leaves you with one spin, just one, where you have only high paying symbols on the reels.
And, granted, even removing a couple of the low paying symbols make for richer reels, but games like Asgard by Pragmatic Play give you 5 spins with lots of wilds.
Unfortunately, when they get bogged down doing classic looking and classic playing games, they just about manage to do ‘ok’ games.
And this Robin of Sherwood game is an OK game. It’s got 243 ways to win, 5 reels, scatters, wilds and free spins.
But it’s a little slow, and the wins are a little less than thrilling, even though it’s got bigger winning potential than their brilliant Castle Builder 2 machine.

Wilds: The arrows is the wild symbol and will replace all other symbols in order to create winning symbols.
It doesn't replace the scatter symbol.
Wild Turning Feature: Randomly triggered, all royal symbols (Jack, Queen, King, Ace) on 1 reel will be replaced by wild symbols.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more archery target scatter symbols will trigger 10 free spins.
Every other spin, Robin will remove one of the Royals, starting with the low paying J and ending with the Ace.
It's hard to dislike this Rabcat game.
The graphics are pretty, the storyline fits with the features, and the sounds capture enough of that medieval charm that makes it easy to play.
In a single spin, you can only win around 300 times your bet though, and that requires one brilliant spin during the free spins.
Which wouldn't be too bad if it could happen any time, but short of a couple of 5 of a kind wins, there's not enough bite or action to make it more than just ok.
If you really want to see what this software studio can do, check out their original Castle Builder slot for something very original.
