Greentube designed this slot to be aesthetically pleasing to look at as well as giving it a magical fairy tale feel. Set in the early hours of the morning, the warm glow of the houses lights, light up the trunks of the outstanding trees in the background of the reels.
Sherwood Showdown is a medium volatile slot which comes with an RTP of 95.13% and is playable from a minimum bet of €0.20 up to the maximum stake of €100.
Design and Symbols
As I already mentioned, this Greentube slot game is beautifully designed with a lot of care and great details. The background behind the reels really sets the scene and tells the story of Robin Hood on his adventure. The background track is upbeat with a magical twist to keep your spirits high as you make your way through the forest on your adventure.
The highest paying symbols are denoted by the different characters of Robin hood along with a shield and a Wild symbol. The lowest paying symbols consist of the highest playing card symbols decorated in pretty Gold. If you are unfamiliar with a deck of cards these symbols consist of 10, J, Q, K and A.
Sherwood Showdown is a slot which is packed with great bonuses and features for you to indulge in during your time exploring with Robin Hood.
There are six different modifiers in this game:
Fill the Nest
To activate the Fill the Nest modifier Robin Hood will appear shooting down birds nest from the trees. Once the nest has landed birds will drop multiplier eggs into the nest. If a Gold egg lands in the nest this will add a 3x multiplier. The bird’s eggs have the ability to add up to 20x multipliers into the nests.
At any point during the game, if you land a non-winning spin Robin Hood may make an appearance blowing his horn which will allow the reels to rotate so they land on a winning combination. This modifier has the ability to repeat at any time.
If you land a non-winning spin, then look out for a pack of wolves who may come racing across the reels. The wolves have the ability to make the reels respin to make them land on a winning combination. This can happen randomly at any point during the game.
While the reels are spinning Robin may make an appearance to the left of the reels shooting fire from his bow am arrow. If a symbol gets hit by Robin’s shot then that symbol will have the ability to multiply, adding more of the same symbol to the reels.
Reel Rise means that if a free spin Scatter symbol lands on reels 1 and 3, reel 5 then has the ability to extend up to four or five symbols. By reel 5 extending, this will enhance your chances of the number of free spins which can be won.
During this modifier, Robin Hood will appear holding a compass in his hand. The compass will determine the direction the reels will rotate. As long as winning combinations land on the reels, the reels will continue to rotate until no more winning spins land. Robin can appear at any time during the game with his compass.
Free Spins Bonus
There are 5 different free spin features which can be activated. When the free spins symbol lands on reel 1, 3 and 5, reel 5 will randomly activate one of the five types of free spin features.
The five different features consist of;
- Bronze Spins: This feature will add a Coin symbol to the reels which have a multiplier of 1x.
- Silver Spins: Silver spins will add a Coin symbol to each reel with a minimum multiplier of x2.
- Gold Spins: Gold Spins adds a Coin symbol to each reel with a minimum multiplier of 3x.
- Platinum Spins: This feature will add a Coin symbol to each reel with a minimum multiplier of 4x.
- King Spins – This means all reels have a Coin symbol added to them with a minimum multiplier of x5.
Hold & Spin Streak
During the free spins for each Coin symbol that is added to the reels will retain its position until the round is over. During the free spins feature more Coins can appear on the reels during each spin, which will also lock into place. This continues until no new Coin symbols spin onto the reels. At the end of the round, your winnings will be multiplied by the total amount displayed by all the multipliers displayed on the Coins.
To wrap things up, I think Greentube did a fantastic job with this slot game. From the moment I opened the slot, I was impressed with the top quality and innovation that went into creating this online slot game.
The slot can take some grafting to land one of the great features, however, you will not be disappointed once you do. After all, what would an adventure with Robin Hood be without any hard grafting?!
