Based on Robin Hood, this new slot will keep entertained fans of the story. There are a lot of extra modifiers and superb features that ensure unique rounds and good chances for wins. Sheriff of Nottingham has a great design and entertaining gameplay. Even if you aren’t into the story of the legendary hero, you are very likely to love the game.
iSoftBet schedule the game’s release for the middle of January 2019. It includes a randomly triggered feature. There is another one that requires landing of 5 wanted villains. Enter the Sherwood forest and take your chances to win 500 to 600 times your stake in this medium variance slot.
This game using the Robin Hood story has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 fixed pay-lines. Players can choose a wager from 0.25 to 25 credits per spin. They can win from combinations of 3 to 5 symbols of a kind landed on a pay-line. This is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.00%.
In the Sheriff of Nottingham, there is a randomly triggered Pick a Royal Letter feature. It can reveal more wilds in super-sized stacks, cash rewards, more scatters or gold coins. The coins act like mystery symbols. The slot has a Wanted Respins feature and Robin Riches Free Spins.
Filling the reels with the top-paying symbol – the wild ensures a 500x stake win. You can score more during the Wanted Respins when the value of each outlaw can rise to a 40x stake. This can result in 600 times your stake or £15,000 at the most.
Like most slots from iSoftBet, Sheriff of Nottingham also looks nice but the focus here is on the humour. It appears cartoonish and the background is the Sherwood Forest. There is a massive tree to the left of the playing area and a castle on its right. The reels’ background is semi-transparent partially revealing the image behind them.
On the reels, you will see the playing cards from J to A in a different colour each and with ornaments. The premium symbols are crossed trumpets, a scroll, crossed swords. There is a shield that represents a coat of arms symbol and a crown scatter. There are also 5 wanted men that activate an extra feature. The picture symbols are very beautifully styled with a lot of details, precision, colour and authenticity.
The Sheriff of Nottingham is here as a wild symbol. The main game is in green colour tones while the free spins look fierier. They are set in a room with a box full of golden coins and fire-lit torches on both sides of the grid. The free spins design is cosy and welcoming. The graphics of Sheriff of Nottingham are clear, precise and impressive.
The low-value symbols are the J, Q, K and A royals. They return 1.6, 8 and 16 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 matching ones in a combination. The high-value symbols are the picture ones. These are a scroll, two crossed swords, two crossed trumpets and a shield representing a coat of arms. The latter returns 16 times your stake for 3 of a kind.
The Sheriff of Nottingham is the wild and has a few important functions. It appears stacked and replaces all missing regular symbols. It is the most-profusely paying symbol of all. Land 3, 4 or 5 of it to win 2, 10 or 20 times your stake respectively.
The additional symbols that take part in the game are 5 outlaws called the Merry Men. When they land simultaneously in one spin they activate the Wanted Respins. Then you get 3 respins with only Merry Men, the Sheriff or blank symbols landing on the reels. Each of the Merry Men worths a prize. When one of them lands, it locks on its position and resets the number of the left re-spins to another 3.
When the Sheriff lands, he collects the values of all Merry Men locked on the window. Then, he clears their positions for new symbols to land. When you run out of re-spins, all values of the Merry Men are uncovered. They are added together to the sum that the Sheriff has collected and the total paid to the player. The villains’ prizes may vary but the minimal one is 40x stake for the rare symbol of King John.
Another random feature in the slot that doesn’t require any special triggering and can activate on any spin is Pick a Royal Letter. While the reels are spinning, 3 sealed letters can appear on the screen and you have to choose one. These are the in-game modifiers that the letters can reveal:
The scatter is the crown, which triggers 8 free spins if you land 3 such symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 in a single spin. Then, you activate the Robin Riches Free Spins. Here the special modifier is the Sync Reels. On each free spin, up to all 5 reels can get synchronised and result in matching stacked symbols. They reveal the same symbol and give you wins. Similar game mechanics have Queen of Riches and Twin Spin.
