Don’t Forget the Merry Men
Of course, Robin Hood is well-known for having a band of Merry Men who followed him and assisted him in his quests. You’ll not only find various different characters from the legend of the heroic outlaw on this game’s five reel and three rows, but you’ll find that they’re designed with the highest quality of graphics. The icons which have been included initially are the standard A, J, K, Q and 10 symbols, while the remaining ones are four character icons. The first is of Friar Tuck, who has his mug of ale in hand, while the second is that of the Sheriff of Nottingham, getting ready to go and tax the citizens of Nottingham. Maid Marian reading a love letter from her lover is another icon, while the last one is of Robin Hood himself with a bow and arrow in hand.
Not only that, but High 5 Games has added a total of 40 different pay lines into the game to accompany the reels, rows and icons. The developer knows that some players have the preference for altering these around, so there’s the possibility of doing this while playing this game. Furthermore, you can also alter around the amount of the bet that you place per spin, which is done with the arrows to the right hand side of the ‘Per Line’ box. This provides a range of between $0.01 and $10 per line, so if you have all bet lines active, you’ll be placing a maximum overall wager of $400 per spin.
Relive the Legend
While you’re playing the game and watching Robin reunite with Marian, you’ll also be able to experience some special features at the same time. These begin with a High 5 Games favourite, which is the ‘Super Stacks’ feature. The reels contain stacks of symbols, and these will transform into any of the standard character or number/letter symbols, or the wild icon. All stacked symbol positions on a reel will transform into one and the same.
And speaking of the wild icon, this is represented by the game’s logo. As a wild, it will substitute for any other symbol on the reels, with the exception of the scatter symbol, in order to form a winning combination. Should five of these appear on an active, winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 5,000 coins.
As far as the scatter is concerned, this is represented by the coat of arms, and this can only appear on reels two, three and four. If this shows up in any position on these reels, you’ll trigger the ‘Collection Bonus’ round, which provides you with seven freespins of the reels. This round introduces the letter icons of B, O, N, U and S, and if these appear on the reels one, two, three, four and five respectively, and you collect all of the letters, you are rewarded with a further seven freespins.
The Legends Unite
We’ve always appreciated games which tell the story of these two characters, and this one is definitely very adept at doing so. Everything is done in the highest quality and players are given the opportunity to experience some wonderful special features as well.
