Robin Hood: Feathers of Fortune hit Microgaming casinos on November 9th 2010. This slot features 243 paylines, stacked wilds, free spins, and the Archery Bonus feature.
It is very similar to Alaskan Fishing, almost exactly the same slot with a different theme, but there is one slight difference. Looking at the very similar paytables, there are two extra symbols on the reels for Alaskan Fishing. This means that the reels are set up quite differently and that will have an effect on the variance (how often it pays). Robin Hood appears to be lower variance, meaning it hits more often, but the wins are relatively small. Alaskan Fishing hits less often, but the wins are usually larger.
I also found that Robin Hood seems to hit free spins more often than Alaskan Fishing. Free spins are triggered when three or more scatter symbols land on the reels during a spin. You are awarded 15 free spins and all wins are doubled. Free spins can be retriggered and the Archery Bonus can be triggered during free spins.
The Archery Bonus is triggered when Robin Hood lands on reels 1 and 5, again just like Alaskan Fishing, and you are taken to a screen where you choose which 5 bags of money you want to shoot to collect the prize.
Since it is so similar to my favorite slot, I definitely like this one too, and it can be less frustrating to play since it hits more often. I haven’t hit anything really big yet, but I’ve had several decent wins so far. See the screenshots below for paytable information and hopefully some nice winning screenshots in the future.
