Slots based on the heroic outlaw Robin Hood are nothing new but iSoftbet tell the story fresh from the villain perspective in Sheriff of Nottingham. Welcome to Nottingham Castle where you’ll find Wanted Respins, Robin Riches Free Spins and In-Game Modifiers with payouts reaching as much as 20x bet/payline.
Mildy Amusing Cartoon Style
iSoftbet has opted to go the cartoonish and mildly amusing (see the Sheriff’s exaggeratingly portly physique) route with the audio/visuals. The artwork is striking and includes a distant view of the notorious Nottingham Castle from nearby Sherwood forest.
The 5×3 (reels/rows) slot, played on 25 paylines comes with an even number (4) of high wins and low wins royal flush symbols. The high wins symbols include a coat of arms, swords, trumpets and a scroll. An instrumental tune reinforces a decidedly 14th/15th period in history.
Sheriff of Nottingham Wild
Not surprisingly, the Sheriff makes regular appearances in the slot while acting as a wild. Not so good for Robin Hood and friends but great for you as he can appear stacked while substituting for all high wins and low wins symbols. He can also form a top payline win of 2x, 10x or 20x total bet with 3, 4 or 5 symbols.
Robin Riches Free Spins
A royal crown represents a bonus symbol that can appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the main game. You can trigger Robin Riches Free Spins with a coinciding appearance of all 3. A modifier of the basic free spins concept is that this one includes up to 5 Sync Reels. Unfortunately, free spins cannot be re-triggered.
Sheriff of Nottingham Wanted Respins
The slot also offers a slew of 7 additional special symbols represented by Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet, Little John, King Richard and Alan-a-Dale. When 5+ of these Merry Men appear on the playing area, then 3 Wanted Respins are triggered. In this feature, the Merry Men are sticky while the other positions spin for the chance to land more Merry Men symbols. The effect will be that they all become sticky and reset the respins counter back to 3.
If the Sheriff lands during the respins, then all the symbols are collected off the reels opening up more positions for the chance to land even more Merry Men.
Pick A Royal Letter
A random modifier can be triggered, by Robin Hood, on any spin. Here, you’re presented with three letters and invited to choose one to reveal one of four possible outcomes.
- Wanted Spin: A landing sheriff will pay the bounties of 3-4 Merry Men.
- Bonus Add: Bonus symbols are added, increasing the odds of activating free spins.
- Sheriff Wilds: Super stacked Sheriffs are added to the reels.
- Win Spins: Golden coins added to the reels reveal an identical symbol.
