Loading up the game you’ll find yourself faced with a familiar five-reel, three-row grid. There are twenty paylines for you to land two or more matching symbols on. Symbols in the game include the typical A-10 card royals, which you’ll need at least three of to land a win.
Next up, there are the higher-paying symbols. These consist of various characters including Friar Tuck, Little John, a Knight and Maid Marion. Finally, there’s Robin Hood himself, who you’ll only need to land two on a line to get a win but five on a payline will give you 1000x your stake.
Every time you land a win in Robin Hood: Shifting Riches, you’ll trigger the shifting reels bonus. The reels shift to the right, giving you new symbols and a chance to land another win. Each shift also increases the multiplier, with wins multiplied by 2x, 3x and 5x.
Robin Hood: Shifting Riches bonus symbols include wilds, money bags and scatters. Wilds will substitute for other paying symbols, helping you land wins. Money bags collect inside the chest and collecting four in a chest can unlock the Robin Hood: Shifting Riches free spins. These bags will stay saved for up to a year, meaning your game progress won’t be lost. After a reel shift, money bag symbols on the reels turn into wilds.
Finally, there’s the scatter which if you land two will give you five free spins and landing three will give you ten free spins. During the free spins round, one of the higher paying symbols is randomly selected to act as a wild, giving you increased potential for wins.
Robin Hood: Shifting Riches contains wilds and scatters which unlock the free spins mode. Every time you land a win, you’ll also trigger the reel shift bonus, which causes the reels to move to the right and adds a multiplier. This bonus triggers indefinitely with a maximum multiplier of 5x.
