A Simple Country Tale

Although Prince of Sherwood does feature a video bonus round, the graphics and animations for this slot are very simple.

The cast of this simple country tale are, of course, Robin Hood, Maid Marianne, and the evil Sherriff of Nottingham. The reels of the Prince of Sherwood slot do their spinning against the backdrop of the legendary Sherwood Forest, with other symbols including a pouch of gold, bow and arrow, and Nottingham Castle.

Myriad Multipliers in the Forest

There are three special symbols in the Prince of Sherwood slot. Although each of these symbols comes with other perks, all of them have the potential to multiply players’ wins:

  • 2x Multiplier with the Robin Hood Wild Symbol

The Prince of Sherwood himself is the wild symbol in this game and like most wilds at, he can replace any other symbol, with the exception of the castle scatter and archery board, to complete winning combinations on active paylines. All Prince of Sherwood wins acquired with the help of a wild symbol receive a 2x multiplier to double prizes.

  • Up to 100x the Bet for Five Castle Scatters

The Prince of Sherwood scatter symbol takes the form of Nottingham Castle, which pays out regardless of where it appears on the reels as long as two or more castles appear at a time. The Prince of Sherwood scatter also comes with a multiplier, which can result in a payout of up to 500 times the total bet if five scatters are landed.

  • The Archery Board Targets 100x the Bet

In the Prince of Sherwood video slot, the symbol of the archer’s board is the bonus symbol. When three or more of these appear scattered from left to right, the Archery Bonus Game is triggered.

Prince of Sherwood players will then be able to choose between two different archers. Once players have made their selection, both of the archers will fire arrows at the target for a prize of up to 100 times the bet. If the selected archer’s arrow lands closest to the target’s centre to win the biggest prize, they player will advance to the next round of this Prince of Sherwood bonus game.

Round 2 of the Archery Board Bonus Game is a free spins feature. The selected Prince of Sherwood archer will then fire two more arrows. The first will determine the number of free spins – up to 25 – presented to the player, whilst the second will set the multiplier – up to 6x – for free spins wins.

In addition to this, the archery board scatter symbol can pay out up to 200x the bet for five of a kind during free spins.

Note that Prince of Sherwood free spins cannot be retriggered.

The Prince of Sherwood Progressive Jackpot

The Prince of Sherwood Progressive jackpot is triggered at random and, because it keeps growing until someone wins it, can pay out much more than the 500-coin win for five Sherriff symbol.
