Robin Hood Introduction
Robin Hood: Shifting Riches is an online pokie from Net Entertainment. This game puts a new spin on the classic tale of Robin Hood by offering players the chance to earn their own riches as they trigger plenty of fun bonus features.
One of the great things about Net Entertainment pokies is that they always do a fantastic job of immersing players in the gameplay and while you don't get Kevin Costner (pictured above) on your reels, it's pretty damn impressive stuff. As the game begins with a cut scene, in which Robin Hood and his merry men launch an ambush on some soldiers who are carrying treasure chests.
The slow motion scene is very action-packed, and does a great job of setting the tone for the rest of the game.
When a winning combination occurs, the reels ‘shift’. A new reel is slotted into the first position and the rest of the reels move over by one space. This helps the player trigger additional winning combinations. If another winning combination is won, then the reels shift one more time and a re-spin is granted. Each time this happens, the player receives an additional multiplier: 2x, 3x and 5x.
This is quite similar to the Tumbling Reels feature available in many IGT online pokies. The main difference is that the reels move horizontally instead of vertically. It is an interesting new spin on the concept, and really helps to boost winning potential.
At the bottom of the screen, each reel has its own treasure chest. As money bag symbols appear on the reels, they will drop into the corresponding treasure chest. Once four are collect in a single chest, then you trigger a free spins round. Another great thing about money bag symbols is that they will convert into wilds. If a money bag symbol is on the reels when a shift occurs, then that symbol will turn wild to help boost winning potential.
During the free spins round, the player will receive on additional wild. One of four regular symbols will turn wild to help boost the players’ chances of hitting winning combinations. Players can also retrigger the free spins round by obtaining additional Free Spins symbols. 2 Free Spins symbols will trigger 5 extra spins while 3 Free Spins symbols will trigger 10 extra spins.
