Overview Robbin Robin’
For this whimsical slot game, slot designers Iron Dog are taking us back to the medieval era to the mystical realm of Sherwood Forest. This can only mean one thing – a Robbin Hood slot. The story of Robbin Hood is apt as the supporting narrative for an online slot game, with the protagonist in the story stealing from the rich to give to the poor. Not that we are implying that players in any way are poor, but the reappropriation of funds is a key theme of both Robbin Hood and online slots.
In terms of game dynamics and bonuses, Iron Dog studio has put in plenty for players to get their teeth stuck into. This includes a range of bonus content that hinges around the potentially very profitable free spins round. This content comes mainly in the form of modifiers such as extra free spins, sticky wilds, expanding wilds, growing multipliers, and transforming symbols.
If tales of taking gold from good King John made up a formative part of your childhood, then you should enjoy this slot. Even if they didn’t, there is still a decent RTP and a max win of 7,500x your stake to get excited about.
Theme and Symbols
Naturally, Iron Dog Studios have set this game in the old English town of Nottingham, the occasional residence of the King and the main target for Robbin Hood when he goes out to purloin gold from the rich. Before describing the game any further, it is worth noting that the graphics, animations and illustrations for this slot generally are sublime and make for a very immersive gaming experience.
The background for Robbin Robin’ looks to be a town square with taverns or houses of residence to the right and left of the board, decorated in exquisite detail. Hammered into one of the building’s wooden frames is a wanted poster for Robbin Hood which is a nice touch. The detail is so specific that if you look closely you can even see a slumbering black cat on the balustrade of the house on the right.
The board looks very much like an old tavern sign that might advertise the Red Lion Inn for example. The truly inspired piece of design for the board however are the two bullseye targets hanging off the board to the left and right which give a hint to Robbin Hood’s mastery of the bow and arrow. These targets are the displays for your free spins count and multiplier. The music for this game further submerges you into Olde England, with a soundtrack that sounds like something from ‘A Knight’s Tale’.
When it comes to the symbols for this game, the low-value symbols are a collection of card suit numbers and letters decorated in leathery wrapping. The next selection of symbols comprises a frothing pint of beer, a quiver of arrows, a green hat, and a leather pouch of coins. The most valuable standard symbol is the chest full of jewels and gold. Landing 5 of these on a payline pays 5x your total stake. In addition, there is a wild symbol and several different character symbols that pertain to the bonus features (which we will cover in the bonus content section).

As mentioned in the introduction, the main action for this slot comes when players activate the free spins round which comes with a variety of modifiers, the ones that are applied to your round are determined by the collection of certain symbols as explained below.
Before we start explaining the free spins round, however, there is one feature in the base game that you should be aware of. This is the Lion wilds feature. Every time that you land a lion symbol in the base game it transforms itself and up to 4 standard symbols in wilds.
Now, each reel in this game has its own scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of any of these scatters will trigger the free spins round. Every free spin round starts with 10 free spins. Each scatter symbol comes with a separate modifier that is applied to the free spins round. Depending on the scatters you trigger the free spins with, will determine the modifiers.
They are as follows:
The Friar Tuck Scatter – The famous monk character appears only on reel 1. If one of these symbols is landed as part of your triggering spin, 1 extra spin is added to your free spins total.
The Main Marian Scatter – If you land the female lead of his story on reel 2, she transforms into a wild and sticks in her position for the duration of the free spins round.
The Robin Hood Scatter – Landing on reel 3, Robin Hood turns into an expanding wild for the free spins, expanding to cover the entire reel that he is on.
The Alan A’ Dale Scatter – The jester symbol, which can only land on reel 4 removes all of the lowest value royal symbols when he lands on the board.
These scatter modifiers can be combined by landing a mix of the special scatters on the triggering spin. Every lion symbol that lands in the free spins round, adds another free spin to your total. There is a bonus buy feature, but it is not available in the UK.
Iron Dog has pulled out all the stops for this fantastic game. Not only is it visually compelling and beautifully made, but the variation in modifiers makes for several great free spins combinations which have high win potential. Robbing the rich never felt so good.
