Here’s something from Las Vegas-based Bally Technologies: an online slot from the leading land-based casino slots manufacturer that doesn’t suck complete balls. Turning the classic English folktale on its head, Lady Robin Hood features a kick-ass female robber-of-the-rich-and-giver-to-the-poor, here clad in leather and giving you the wink as you spin the reels.
On the Reels…
Lady Robin Hood is a 40 payline slot that is packed with lush graphics and some really neat touches. Played out over 4 rows as well as 5 reels it makes for a lot more regular wins – and when you’re playing at the maximum bet of $10 a coin it means you’ll need pretty deep wallets to enjoy it fully. Granted, that is not necessarily what you want to read in the opening couple of paragraphs of an online slot review but let’s check out the facts and see if this game steals from the poor to give to the rich or vice versa.
On the reels, as well as Lady Robin we get a quiver, a dagger, a flagon of ale, a purse of coins, plus Bally’s standard 10-to-Ace symbols, here looking rather more regal and medieval than usual.
There’s Stacked Wilds
The Wild symbol substitutes for all regular symbols in the game and it only appears on reels 2-5. However, it is stacked on the reels to give you extra chances to win.
Find Lady Robin Hood to Win 10 Free Spins
Three or more LRH icons on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers the free spins bonus round where 2x is given on all free spins wins. 10 spins are awarded but there’s more than just boring spins.
Three arrows are awarded when the Free Games Bonus begins. You’ll notice that reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 have a shield above them. Each shield has four positions that can be filled to trigger a locked Wild Reel. Before the free games start and after each spin for each arrow that lands on the reels a position in the shield is filled.
When the four positions of any shield are filled, that reel becomes Wild for all remaining free spins. On the rare occasions I triggered the bonus feature, I found at least two reels turning completely Wild so it does present itself as a pretty generous bonus feature overall.
There are some interesting bonuses to be had in the game, and with the Lady Robin Hood character appearing stacked it can lead to lots of big regular wins. I did find the free spins bonus pretty tricky to activate, however.
If you like lots of stacked symbols all over the shop giving you big wins, check out Barcrest’s horror-themed The Curse of Frankenstein for a slice of British culture of a different sort. Meanwhile, WMS’s jungle-themed Amazon Queen has another sturdy female lead and lots of stacked icons.
