Overview Robin - Sherwood Marauders
The combined efforts of the new studio of Peter and Sons and Yggdrasil have given us this beautiful and entertaining slot based on the old English legend of Robin Hood. If you have ever felt the compulsion to steal from the rich and give to the poor, as the adage goes, then this slot might be exactly the game you are looking for. Indeed, this game is full of chests of gold, swords and of course, bow and arrows all styled in that particular cartoon aesthetic unique to Peter and Sons.
When it comes to features for Robin - Sherwood Marauders, there is quite a selection. These include a cascading reels mechanic with an attached multiplier, a brilliant free spins round with expanding wilds and even a super ‘free spins round’. Here again, wilds will be at play, however modifying multipliers will also join in the fun.
Theme and Symbols
This game is obviously based on the legend of Robin Hood, a tale that every English schoolboy and girl knows well. For those who are unfamiliar with the story, Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw in English folklore whose tale has been retold many a time in films and novels. According to legend, he returned from fighting in the crusades to find his town and its peoples suffering from the tyrannical reign of King John. He then becomes an outlaw, getting into many capers to steal riches from the bloated and greedy king and his subjects to give them to the poor and needy.
The background for this game is a cartoon depiction of Sherwood forest, the legendary domain of Robin Hood. It is shown as a tall collection of pine trees shooting up from the ground at various angles. Sherwood Forest is a real place in Nottinghamshire, its tagline is: “Where Legends Grow”.
The board on the other hand is some sort of medieval wooden construction like one that you might find in a town square or tavern. On top of the board is a selection of melting candles of different heights. These are magically lit when you enter the special free spins round and the whole screen is plunged into darkness to indicate a change of atmosphere in the game.
In terms of symbols, the lower-paying symbols are represented by various playing card suits – diamonds, hearts, clubs, and spades. When it comes to the higher paying picture symbols there is a collection of typical Robin Hood iconographies. These include Robin himself (the man in the green), the Nottingham Sheriff, a pair of crossed swords, arrows, a guitar and a truncheon. The wild in this game is represented by a simple W. The scatter for this game is the treasure chest.

The first game bonus that players should be aware of is the cascading reels mechanic. This feature comes into play when any win is formed. The winning symbols are immediately removed from the board and replaced by new ones from above to see if you can score another win from the same spin. The cascade feature will continue until a new set of symbols does not trigger a win.
The other 2 features are a couple of different free spins rounds. The first of which is just called the ‘Free Spins Feature’ is triggered when players manage to land 3 or more of the scatters on the playing window at the same time. However, the more chests that you land, the more free spins you are awarded to take through into the round. The most scatters you can collect is 6, which will grant you 18 free spins. As mentioned in the theme description, you will be plunged into the night at this point. In the free spins round, if a wild lands, it will instantly expand to cover the reel on which it landed. Additionally, if the wild is used as part of a win, the cascade feature will immediately trigger.
The free spins round also has an attached multiplier modifier to it. You’ll notice that for every cascade that you trigger the multiplier will grow by 1. However, the multiplier will reset after a losing spin. This feature cannot be retriggered from within the feature.
The next feature is the ‘Super Free Spins’. This bonus game is activated when you fill the scatter meter located at the bottom of the screen. You do this by collecting scatter symbols. When this meter reaches its capacity, you will be awarded 12 free spins. However, before the spins begin a large target will fill the screen. On it is a selection of different multiplier values that range from x2 to x10. Following this presentation, the eponymous Robin Hood arrives onto the scene and shoots an arrow at the target. Where the arrow lands will determine the specific multiplier attached to the round that you are about to play. As with the other free spins round, you can continue to grow the multiplier with each winning cascade, however, when it resets after a loss, it will only go down to the target value determined by Robin at the start of the round. Wilds appear with more frequency in the Super Spins too.
The crisp and inviting cartoon graphics that Peter and Sons create are unlike anything else in the online slot machine world and are refreshing to look at. It is a shame that losing spins reset you to the base multiplier in the free spins round, as this is not usually the custom. However, at least the game is a cascade slot so players can maximise the potential of their spins with multiple chances from each one to win bigger and bigger prizes.
