Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets Slot
Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets is a 5-reel, 4-row, fixed 40-pay line online slot from NextGen Gaming. If you're wondering where the slightly unusual name of this game comes from, then don't fret as we had to work it out too. Initially, we thought that Robin Hood had taken to using Twitter, but we were incorrect. The 'Robin' in this title is indeed a robin, as in a red-breasted bird. So, it's "Prince of Tweets" as birds tweet, you see.
This game has the unique NextGen Gaming 'SuperBet' feature, in which you add enhancements (and therefore more chances of winning) to each spin, for an extra fee. We'll explain more about this a little later.
Joining the habitual playing card values (on this occasion, nine to ace) on the reels are Robin Hood and his band of merry … er … birds. The usual suspects (Robin, Maid Marian and Friar Tuck) have all been ornithological-ised and are feathered bandits. To start things twittering, you need to select your coin size from 0.01 to 2.00. All forty pay lines are fixed and at the lowest SuperBet level (one enhancement) it costs half-a-coin per line. When you're ready to rob from the rich (online casinos) and give to the poor (you), hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning payout returns your coin, which is achieved by landing three nines or tens on an active pay line. The jackpot is for five of the lovely Maid Marian, who wins you two hundred coins.
Robin Hood is wild in this game, and he substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol. He also sometimes fires arrows – the symbols that he hits turn into wilds. The symbols that can turn into more wilds depends on your chosen SuperBet level.
A (Nottingham?) castle acts as the scatter symbol. You need to land at least three anywhere on the reels to trigger both a cash payout, plus free spins. You win five free games per scatter symbol that you land. During free games, any symbol that has been turned into a wild will turn adjacent SuperBet enhanced symbols into wilds. You can re-trigger free spins.
Now on to that SuperBet. This is an additional wager that can be set to three levels:
- SuperBet off: The Robin Hood's Arrow feature turns Maid Marian's symbols wild.
- SuperBet Level 1 (additional thirty coins): Robin's Arrow feature turns Maid Marian, Friar Tuck and 'pouch' symbols wild.
- SuperBet Level 2 (additional eighty coins): Robin's Arrow feature turns ALL non-playing card symbols into wilds.
All wins can be gambled. You can guess the colour of a concealed card to double your prize, or the suit to quadruple it. Guess correct and you cash in, but get it wrong and you lose what you've just won.
With an enchanting soundtrack and super-smooth graphics, Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets is one of the best games that NextGen Gaming have produced for a while. There are enough features to keep you interested, and if you do get bored you can up your SuperBet level and enhance your chances of a win. One of NextGen Gaming's titles that truly does hit the target (and maybe even splits the arrow that's already there in two).
