Robin Hood Stars In Online Pokies

November 18, 2017


The tales of Robin Hood have all the elements of storytelling: adventure, romance, justice, revenge set in the background of the eternal conflict between good and evil. Its popularity has led online casino games suppliers to create pokies based on the theme. You can play two of these at Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino.

The more exciting Robin Hood themed online pokie is from Rival Gaming and is titled Sherwood Forest Fortunes. Players familiar with the story will recognise the characters in the high paying symbols. These include Robin Hood, his arch enemy the Sheriff of Nottingham, his love Maid Marian and some of the Merry Men like Friar Tuck and John Little. The low paying symbols include crown, sceptre, sword, gold bag, lute and quiver. Robin Hood appears only on reels 1, 3 and 5 as a two stack wild symbol. Maid Marian is the scatter symbol that triggers the free spins bonus when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. Three scatter symbols award 5 free spins, four scatter symbols award 10 free spins and five scatter symbols award 25 free spins. All payouts are tripled during the free spins.

The Sherwood Forest Fortunes offers a bonus game on the second screen that is triggered when three or more quiver symbols appear anywhere on the reels. There are three bonus games that are played in sequence each time the feature is triggered. They lead up to a duel between Robin Hood and the Sheriff. The progress of the game can be tracked on the interactive map. The first bonus game is the Target Practice Bonus Round. You choose a target and win bonus credits depending on your archery skill. The second bonus game is Steal from the Rich. You have to steal from the rich while avoiding the Sheriff's gaze and earn more bonus credits. The final bonus game is the Sheriff's Duel Bonus Round.

The other Robin Hood themed online pokie is from Realtime Gaming. It is called Prince of Sherwood. Robin Hood is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property but appears on reels 1 and 5 only. The other thematic symbols are the Sheriff of Nottingham, his castle, Maid Miriam, bag of gold and the long bow. The archery board triggers the bonus feature. Two archers shoot arrows at the target board. If the archer selected by you has the higher score then you can win up to 25 free spins with a multiplier up to 6 times.
