Round Up Robin’s Merry Men and Take On the Sheriff of Nottingham Slot From iSoftBet!

 Videoslots Casino will be adding the new iSoftbet slot Sheriff of Nottingham to their casino when it is officially released on the 18th of March 2020, this cartoon stlyed slot is based around Robin Hood and his Merry Men in the classic encounters with the Sheriff of Nottingham.

We certainly need to congratulate iSoftBet on the graphics and animations on this machine, possibly the best looking slot they have made to date, with some very nice touches including Robin popping up during the free spins creating bigger wins from the synced reels feature!

Using a regular 5×3 reel layout and 25 fixed paylines this graphically superb slot comes packed with base game and bonus features, similar in style to the very popular Blueprint Gaming slots you can expect base game features such as Win Spins, Wild Reels, Bonus Symbol Adds along with 2 main bonus features that include Synced Reels Free Spins and Wanted Re-Spins with individual symbols prizes of up to 1000x on offer!

Whilst this machine does seem to play like a medium variance slot, there is some very nice potential thanks to the main bonus features which on occasion in our playtests paid well over 300x stake!

Along with all the randomly activated base game features, the main things to look out for are landing 3 scatters which triggers the main free spins feature, or landing 5 or more of the Merry Men on the reels which will trigger the Wanted Free Spins feature with symbols locked and re-spins awarded.

If you enjoy slots with lots going on then you will really enjoy this machine, the gameplay is very straightforward but there is always something happening to make this a thoroughly entertaining slot to play!

During each free spin, the synced reels are indicated by a red flag behind them, this feature can sync up to 5 reels so that symbols landing in view will match.

One small feature we also noticed during this bonus is that Robin may pop up under the reels and throw coins, when this occurs it seems to signal a big win is going to be created during that spin!

Overall Opinions

The Sheriff of Nottingham slot From iSoftBet is a visually gorgeous machine with some amazing animations, iSoftBet’s best release graphically to date and they are definitely setting a high bar for other slot developers to keep up with.

The gameplay is mixed and varied and should appeal to players who enjoy lots or randomly activated mini-features along with main bonus rounds too. Whilst it reminded us of the classic Blueprint Gaming slots there is plenty of innovation in this release that make it worth checking out.

Both of the main features are capable of producing some very nice wins, we had wins of well over 200x stake in both of them, thanks to 4 synced reels in the free spins, and the Sheriff collecting prizes in the Wanted Re-Spins.

Overall it’s definitely worth checking out, even just to see the amazing graphics, but we thoroughly enjoyed the varied gameplay too!
