Riches of Robin Slot
Riches of Robin is a brand new slot released by the well-known providers at Play´N GO. As you might have already guessed, the slot is all about the famous Robin Hood known through a number of movies, TV-shows, games and stories throughout many years. This time you will be getting to know the guy a little better through a slot and we can't help but be optimistic about this slot before getting started. It will be interesting to see how the legend of Robin Hood will translate onto a slot machine, but we surely have high hopes.
Starting off with a standard set up, made up of 5 reels and 3 rows as well as 20 fixed pay lines to place bets on. At the bottom of the screen, you will be able to adjust your bet, starting from a minimum of 0.10 and up to a maximum of 100 per spin. You will be earning wins by landing 3 or more matching symbols on a pay line. Wins will always have to start on the first reel and go from the left towards the right. The slot is of high volatility, while it has an RTP of 96.65% and can offer a maximum win of up to 1 000x your total stake.
There are several special symbols in play here as well as a couple of different features. There are free spins involving multipliers, a Heist re-spins bonus round and also a Quick Hit feature.
There is actually quite some things going on in Riches of Robin, with several special symbols as well as several features. The free spins feature rewarding you with up to 20 spins also involves random multipliers while the Heist Re-spins feature can get you some good wins and the Quick Hit feature is hiding some great prizes. Something a little unusual is the fact that you can trigger both Heist Re-spins and the Free Spins feature during the same spin. When this happens, the Heist Re-spins will be played first and then the Free Spins feature.
The Quick Hit feature involves money bags, which will be containing different set amounts with prizes going up to 20x, 100x and up to 1 000x your total bet. Should you have a spin which does not involve any wins, then the Quick Hit feature can be triggered. Plain and simple.
To trigger the Heist Re-spins feature you will have to land four money bags on the reels. You will start out with 3 re-spins and during this feature, the only symbols that can appear on the reels will be the money bags. When a money bag lands on the reels, you will start the whole feature again, meaning you go back to having 3 re-spins. This will keep on going on until the re-spins go down to zero or the reels have been filled with Money Bags. No matter which way the feature ends, all prizes will be paid out at the end.
Free Spins feature
In the Free Spins feature, the scatter symbol comes into play. It can only appear on the middle row of reels 2 and 4. The good news is however that you only need 2 of the scatters to be able to trigger the Free Spins bonus round. When triggered, you will be rewarded with a random amount of spins, that could be 8, 10, 12, 14 or 20.
As well as the free spins, there is also a random multiplier in this feature, that could be x2, x3, x4 or x5 and will be applied to all wins during the bonus round. During this feature, both the Heist Re-spins and the Quick Hit can be triggered and not only that, should 2 scatter symbols land on the reels, they will reward you with 2 more free spins and at the same time increase the multiplier by 1. Should the multiplier reach x10, every re-trigger will reward you with another 4 free spins.
Design and Symbols
Riches of Robin is without a doubt a slot that is aesthetically pleasing, with all the surroundings and details you would expect to see in a slot revolving around the legend Robin Hood. The background will be showing off a medieval Nottingham scene, with some houses and buildings seen around the reel set, of course, complete with a brick roof and wooden detailing. There is also a medieval-style soundtrack going on in the background, which adds to the whole setting of the game.
On the reel set that is framed by wood, you will be seeing 4 different low value symbols and 4 high value symbols. The low value symbols are of course the card suits with clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds in place while the high value symbols show Friar Tuck, King Richard, Maid Marian, Little John and Alan A Dale who are of course characters from the story. Maid Marian is the symbol of highest value here and will pay 20x your stake for 5 of a kind on the reels.
As for the special symbols on the reels, you will see a wild symbol which is represented by Robin Hood himself and will be able to substitute all regular symbols and award you with 20x your bet for a full line. Money bags filled with gold coins is the bonus symbol, with a special purple jackpot money bag offering higher rewards. The scatter symbol comes in the form of a target.
Our Thoughts on Riches of Robin
A slot that without a doubt will get the hopes up amongst many players, just as it did with us, has met our high hopes in terms of the execution of the theme. Play´N GO has done Robin Hood justice, with some pretty good graphics as well as symbols that are perfectly designed for the slot (even though you will be seeing the standard card suits too).
We certainly appreciate the number of special features in the game, with both a re-spins feature, free spins feature, multipliers and even the possibility to trigger two of the features at once! Of course, the high volatility is an obvious drawback to this slot, which is set at the highest possible level according to Play´N GO at 96.65%. Aside from this, we are assuming that Riches of Robin is a game that will be loved by many players.
