It’s probably a given that most people around the world are fully aware of the Robin Hood story, right? You know, the pro archer who robs from the rich and gives to the poor? Well, even though you might be fully informed on the tale, you’ll probably not be aware of its crossover with the bird land, right? Well, if not, then make way for the next piece of our online slots reviews: Robin Hood Prince of Tweets game, presented to you by the developer NextGen Gaming. It takes all of the adventure and intrigue of the original story and merges it very nicely with new takes on the characters involved within. And it does all this with the highest quality of graphics and game play available to the gaming community. Of course, as everyone knows, the folk tale takes place in Sherwood Forest, Nottingham, England, and it is this location that is displayed in the background of the game.
Get Your Arrows and Aim for the Bullseye
The game is one of the more recent releases from NextGen Gaming, but it still offers up a very familiar interface of five reels. However, it has had four rows included in it, instead of the regular three that are usually offered, and this gives it a bit more of a unique edge over many other games. It’s upon these reels that you’ll find the game’s variety of different symbols, and these begin with six low-paying offerings of A, J, K, Q, 9 and 10. Joining them are icons of a wanted poster, a bow and some arrows in a quill, a target and a bag of gold coins. The final two symbols are present in the form of an owl dressed as Friar Tuck and a female bird dressed as Maid Marian.
As well as the game’s reels, rows and icons, players are able to place wagers across 40 different pay lines. These are fixed in position, so you cannot adjust them at all. However, all players are able to alter their bet around, which offers up a minimum of £0.01 per pay line, and this increases up to a maximum value of £2.00 per line. Therefore, a maximum overall wager of £200 is able to be played per round and you’re also able to utilises the ‘Autoplay‘ button as well. This allows you to play up to 100 consecutive rounds at the same wager level.
Rob from the Rich and Give to the Poor
A game with such a great theme behind it ought to also have some wonderful special features, and Robin Hood Prince of Tweets certainly delivers in this area. This begins with a wild icon, represented by the robin dressed as our titular character. As a wild icon, this will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, except for the scatters, and will assist in forming a winning combination. This icon only appears on reel three. Not only that, but he is also able to turn adjacent symbols into wilds as well and the symbols that can turn to wild depend on the ‘Superbet‘ level selected.
And speaking of the ‘Superbet‘ option, this is an additional wager, which can be adjusted by using the buttons at the right hand side of the reels. You can add one enhancement to the reels, or you can increase this up to three enhancements for an extra 30 credits or six enhancements for an extra 80 credits. With the highest amount selected, the wild is able to turn Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, the target, the money bag, the quiver and the wanted poster into wilds!
Finally, there’s the inclusion of a scatter symbol, which is represented by the image of a bird house in the shape of a castle. As a scatter, it will pay out wherever it shows up on the reels, and if five come in to view, your wager is multiplied by times 4,000. When three, four or five scatters come into view, you’ll be the recipient of 15, 20 or 25 freespins, respectively. During the freespins round, any symbol that has been turned into a wild will also turn adjacent superbet enhanced symbols into wilds as well!
