Robin Hood Shifting Riches Video Slot review
Robin Hood Shifting Riches is a 5 reel 20 payline video slot by Net Entertainment. The game is based on Robin Hood obviously and has a medieval outlaw theme. The slot features shifting reels which you can benefit from by getting a multiplier up to 5x on every single spin.
The shifting reels is a unique feature and works as follows – when you have a winning line, the reels shift to the right, making room for a new reel. You can maybe win again here. The reels will carry on shifting as long as you have a winning combination whilst the multiplier goes up. It’s similar in principle to the Tumbling Reels feature used on IGT’s Da Vinci Diamonds.
If the reels shift once, you get a 2x multiplier, shift twice for a 3x multiplier and shift 3 times for a 5x multiplier. This means you can get up to a 5x multiplier on every single spin! If you get a winning spin when you have a 5x multiplier, it will continue (with a 5x multiplier applied) until you don’t have a winning combination.
The wild symbol is the Robin Hood logo and acts like a substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter of Free Spins symbol. The scatter symbol is the Money Bag symbol and if you get 4 of these in a single treasure chest, you will trigger the Free Spins feature. Note that money bags are saved for 1 year after you’ve last played meaning you can always come back to the game and pick up where you left off.
Once this is triggered, you click on the chest to reveal the value of the bags collected. One of the characters is selected as an extra wild and substitutes all other symbols (except free spins symbol). You will start off with 10 free spins but if you manage to get 2 free spins symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5, you will get an extra 5 free spins and 10 free spins for 3 free spins symbols.
If you get 5 Robin Hood symbols on 5 reels, you will be awarded with 1,000 coins. The shifting riches feature also applies which can you give up to a 5 multiplier on every free spin. I found the extra wild symbol to be the deciding factor in achieving a big win with my best outcome to date being a 320 times stake win.
Robin Hood Shifting Riches is a medium variance slot which can give you big wins in the Free Spins feature. The Extra Wild symbol is what can really boost your outcome especially if you get one of the higher paying symbols. If not as good as Dead or Alive or Gonzo’s Quest in my opinion, but a good NetEnt slot that is often overlooked.
