The story of Robin Hood dates back to the medieval age. He’s known as the man who stole from the rich and shared the loot with the poor. We don’t know if the story is true or not, but what we know is that NetEnt put this story on the reels perfectly. It comes with high quality graphics, matching and exciting audio, and few creative bonus features that make it stand out from other let’s say simple slots. If you remember the hilarious comedy that’s based on the protagonist Robin Hood, don’t raise your expectations too high. These characters have nothing to do with that movie cast. Nevertheless, since the theme revolves around that story we can consider Robin Hood: Shifting Riches as a movie themed video slot.

Robin Hood: Shifting riches has 5 spinning reels that shift once the player hits a winning line. It has 3 rows of symbols and 20 paylines. The number of paylines is fixed meaning players can’t adjust how many of them are going to be active. Players can set the coin value between the values of 0.01 and 0.50, furthermore they can place up to 10 coins per line. In terms of coins the minimum bet is 20 and you can spin the reels with as much as 200. In terms of real money it’s €0.20 and €100. There is a multiplier that increases each time the reels shift. Depending on how many times the reels have shifted players can benefit from a multiplier of x2, x3 and x5.
The graphics is crisply clear with all elements such as shadows, light included. Whenever any of the symbols forms a winning line they show a cool brief animation. As expected Robin Hood is the highest paying symbol. The wild symbol is represented with the logo of Robin Hood: Shifting Riches. It will substitute for any other symbol except the Free Spins symbol and Money Bags. Money Bags are collected from chests that will appear on the reels. 4 of these in a chest grants the player Free Spins. The coin value that these free spins will have and the number of free rounds depends on the information provided once you open the chest. In addition to this Money Bags turn into wilds once the reels shift.
During Free Spins one of the high paying symbols is selected as additional wild. It has the same role as the standard wild symbol. Hitting 2 Free Spins symbols during free rounds grants the player additional 5 Free Spins whereas 3 Free Spins symbols will result with an increase of 10 free rounds. Free Spins symbols can appear on reels 3, 4 and 5.
Adventurers, you’ve found the game you’ve been looking for. The theme, the design, the rather rewarding bonus features will make your day. Not only that, they will hopefully make you a bit richer than before. Regardless of the outcome the experience will be a memorable one. Robin Hood: Shifting Reaches is a benchmark, a role model for modern looking video slots.
