The legend of Robin Hood is as popular as that of King Arthur and there are as many video slots based on this theme. The adventures of this hero and his band of merry men provide enough content to software developers for them to create awesome graphics and exciting bonus rounds.

The Robin Hood themed online slot from software provider Realtime Gaming is titled Prince of Sherwood. Sherwood Forest was the home of the good hearted outlaws. The crafting of the symbols adds a comic touch to the video slot. Robin Hood is understandably the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 1 and 5 and doubles payouts when in winning combinations. The other thematic symbols are the Sheriff of Nottingham, his castle, Maid Miriam, bag of gold and the long bow. The archery board triggers the thematic feature in which a bonus game can lead to free spins. In the bonus game if the selected archer has the higher score then the second round is triggered in which you can win up to 25 free spins with a multiplier up to 6 times.

The Playtech Robin Hood themed slot game is titled Archer. It is an All Ways slot game that does away with defined paylines. The symbols are characters from the legend such as Robin Hood, Maid Miriam, the Sheriff of Nottingham and Friar Tuck. This being a later release offers animations during winning combinations. Friar Tuck who had a fondness for drink takes a swig from a tankard of ale. In Archer, Playtech has introduced the innovative Expand & Split feature. A symbol with an arrow border may expand in a winning combination. It will not replace the existing symbols, but the space will split to accommodate both symbols. Then either of the symbols can be used to make a winning combination.

Microgaming offers Robin Hood: Feathers of Fortune. In this online video slot, Robin Hood and his merry men appear as birds. If you are familiar with the tale you can enjoy matching the bird with the character. Robin Hood is easy because he is the robin. His love interest, Maid Miriam is the white dove. The wise Friar Tuck is the owl and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham is the crow. Robin Hood: Feathers of Fortune is a 243 ways to win slot game. The Robin Hood logo is the wild symbol and it appears stacked on the reels. The video slot also features a free spins round and a bonus game on the second screen.
