Those who enjoy the stories of Robin Hood’s adventures in Sherwood Forest will no doubt thoroughly enjoy Robin Hood’s Wild Forest on online slot machines game by Red Tiger. The combination of Red Tiger Gaming and NetEnt was only ever going to make for superlative games with the best graphics and features. Robin Hood’s Wild Forest is well-designed and has plenty of action that brings the legend of Robin Hood to the reels. Read on to discover all you need to know about this title.

Game Overview

Robin Hood’s Wild Forest is a medium-volatility game with a slightly lower-than-optimum return to player (RTP) at -2215, but it has lots of regular modest payouts to keep you returning for more and a maximum payout of 1003x your stake. 

Presented as a five-reel, three-row, 10-payline format, this online slot is a great place for beginners to practice and learn some tips before they progress to more complex versions.

How To Play

Essentially, you’re looking for a combination of three or more of a kind for a payout in this casino game. The golden lion mask — a symbol perhaps of King Richard the Lionheart, to whom Robin Hood was loyal — is the most generous symbol, paying out 300x your stake for a five-of-a-kind combo. The gameplay has cascading reels, plenty of respins and four wilds that can substitute for any of the other pay symbols. It’s a pretty simple format, but it’s effective and can be rewarding.

Graphics

A rich, leafy dark forest is the backdrop of this classy-looking slot game. Lying around are abundant chests of loot that Robin Hood and his men have plundered and that perhaps represent your potential winnings. There’s some excellent marksmanship by the master archer, Robin Hood himself, as his arrows fly around the reels. Even the calligraphy of the standard symbols evokes the scrolls and parchments of the time. The whole look and feel of the game has a legendary authenticity about it that you’re sure to love if you regularly play slots online.

Features

Unusually for an online casino game, Robin Hood’s Wild Forest has no free spins or slots bonus features, but you can check out the paytable with all the information about the wilds and regular symbols, how they work and their values The key to the fun in this game is the character symbols that each represent a role player in the legend that was Robin Hood.

The first is Maid Marian, Robin Hood’s love interest. In this game, everyone gets to share in her affections. As she blows kisses, the symbols on which they land transform into wilds. Sometimes she’s more generous than others and she’ll blow more kisses, creating even more wilds on the reels. The ironically-named Little John, big and brawny, is the destroyer of the small payout symbols. If you land his character, he goes on a random destruction spree, which is good for you, as he smashes symbols that are not part of winning combos. 

When you land Robin Hood, hero and master archer, he unleashes his arrows, pinions high-paying symbols and triggers a respin. Any Maid Marian symbols or those wilds that her kisses landed on, also get locked in and your chances of a win are looking good. And being the leader of the pack, Robin Hood can flex his bow at his own discretion, activating even more respins.

Other symbols include Robin’s jaunty cap with a feather in it, bags of gold and foaming tankards of ale, but sadly no Friar Tuck.

Bonuses and Jackpots

So, there are no free spins in this game. Nor are there any jackpot bonuses but along with the cascading reels, respins and mini features plus a maximum payout of 1,003x your stake, this game is still worth a spin for a little online gambling. The great thing about online slots is the variety and if this game doesn’t appeal because of the theme, graphics or payout potential, then another one surely will.

In Robin Hood’s Wild Forest, relatively frequent payouts make up for a single jackpot and are a nice device to keep you playing with a relatively low risk/reward ratio.

Similar Games

As simple as the structure of the game is, its graphics and features are key to its attraction. If it’s the swashbuckling adventure games that you enjoy, “Lara Croft Temples and Tombs” fits the bill and it has the same cascading reels format. Another classic in the genre is Tomb Raider. If you like the rolling, falling, cascading or avalanche reels, one of the originals is Gonzo’s Quest. You might also enjoy Da Vinci Diamonds. If you’re after games with a forest setting, you could try Pixies of the Forest II.

Winning Isn’t Stealing at BetMGM

Robin Hood was ultimately a gentleman thief, forgiven by everyone except the Sheriff of Nottingham. But if you spin and win, fair and square, that’s definitely not stealing. You can try your hand at any number of online casino games with BetMGM and become an honest winner. Just register and if, like Robin Hood, you feel the need to share your winnings with the poor, well, that wouldn’t be a bad thing either.
