Robin of Sherwood

Robin Hood Shifting Riches is a late 2011 slot release by NetEnt. Even though it has been around for quite a few years, the slot is still a favourite among many slots players. Its features include a free spins bonus feature, a special Money Bag and Shifting Reels feature which can get you up to a 5x multiplier. It’s obviously based on the classic Robin Hood tale where the hero steals from the rich and gives back to the poor.

It's a 5 reel and 20 payline slot with excellent graphics and smooth flowing animations. Players can bet as little as 20p to £100 per spin on its 10 levels.

About the Game

Robin Hood Shifting Riches has a unique Shifting Reels feature where the reels shift towards the right whenever you form any winning combinations. When the reels shift, you can end up forming more wins and the shifting motion occurs again. This causes the multiplier to double then to triple and then finally go up to 5x.

  • Money Bag feature- Keep an eye out for the Money Bag symbols because these are collected in the treasure chests lying under each reel. When you collect 4 of them in a treasure chest, you activate the Free Spins bonus round. Money Bags you find in the treasure chests are saved so you can still find them when you start up your next game. These can still be accessed a year after your last game.

Once the bonus feature begins you will need to click on the treasure chest which reveals the value of the bags you have collected. One of the characters is chosen as an extra wild symbol and starts off with 10 free spins. If you get 2 free spin symbols on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reels,  you will win 5 extra free spins. You will win an extra 10 free spins if you land 3 free spins symbols.

The Verdict

Robin Hood Shifting Riches is a great slot game and it provides big wins. You won’t be able to activate the bonus feature as frequently as you'd like, but you can expect good returns if and when you do. This game can be a little frustrating because it spins very quickly.
