A bow and arrow wielding huntress is the star of the show in Robyn, a fairy tale adventure themed slot from Genesis Gaming. Using a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game engine, it comes with a bonus feature that offers 12 free spins with random added wilds. Available on all devices, head into this enchanted forest from between 25p and £125 per spin.
The back story here is that a wicked queen has stolen the riches of the village and Robyn, with her trusty bow and arrow, is trying to get it back. The reels are set in a dimly lit forest and include playing card symbols alongside a white horse, the smiling prince, wicked queen and of course Robyn herself.
There are a couple of principal features to get stuck into. The first comes in the base game. When a target symbol lands, Robyn will shoot an arrow and it will transform into another randomly chosen symbol (but not the wild).
There’s a similar but better offering available in the Wild Arrow Free Spins feature which is triggered when you land 3or more of the Robyn scatter symbol anywhere on the reels – here you’ll be awarded 12 free spins. The targets are once again in play.
Instead of a random symbol, Robyn’s arrow will turn them into wilds to increase your winning opportunities. You can re-trigger the free spins if you land 3 scatters during the feature giving you a total of 24.
Robyn is a well-produced slot – the visuals are top notch and the action plays out to a jaunty, orchestral backing track which nicely matches the fairy tale imagery. No complaints on the design front.
This game isn’t overloaded with features though – the 243 ways to win game engine delivers plenty of small scale wins, as does the base game target transformations. The free spins are decent enough but even when we re-triggered them, we never managed to walk away with a bumper haul of coins. The variance here is pretty low.
Robyn isn’t a bad slot but it could have been much better with a few minor tweaks here and there. It hits the target in many areas but misses the bullseye. A missed opportunity which is something of a shame. If you like the theme, Bally’s Lady Robin Hood is a better alternative.
