Bally Technologies has taken the classic tale of the world’s most famous outlaw and given it a feminine twist in Lady Robin Hood. It’s a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that comes with a free spins bonus round and the Arrow Mystery Bonus which can turn up to eight symbols wild. Join the brigands from between 40p and £400 per spin.

Set against the backdrop of Sherwood Forest, the reels in Lady Robin Hood include a quiver full of arrows, a dagger, a flagon of ale and a pouch of coins as well as playing cards from ace through to 10. Robin herself is the biggest payer, offering 500 times your line bet if you find a 5 symbol combination. There is also a wild symbol which appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and substitutes for everything apart from the bonus symbol.

Lady Robin Hood comes with 2 main features. First up is the Arrow Mystery Bonus feature – triggered at random, the lady will fire a selection of arrows onto reels 2 through 5 and in the process turn them wild. The number of wilds can range from between 2 and 8 and provides a nice little boost.

The main attraction though is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when the free games symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. In addition to winning a 2x multiplier on the triggering spin, you’ll also be awarded 10 free spins.

During the feature, you’ll notice a shield above reels 2, 3 and 4 – there are 4 spaces within each shield. When a specific symbol hits it will fill 1 of these spaces. When all four spaces are filled, that symbol will become wild and will remain that way for the rest of your free spins. To get things started, you’ll be awarded 3 arrows which will decide which symbols you want to find.

Like many Bally creations, Lady Robin Hood is based on a popular land based casino slot. The combination of good quality graphics and impressive features should make the online version a similar hit with virtual players too. A medium variance game, it’s one of Bally’s most popular slots and for good reason. I would also recommend Thunderhorn by Bally which is very good as to is Girls With Guns Frozen Dawn by Microgaming which features plenty of heroines.
