NextGen Gaming has announced the launch of its newest online slot, Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets. The game will hit online casinos in a few weeks, and Slots Temple has an exclusive first look at the title to provide you with an in-depth review.

Theme

Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets is based on the legend of Robin Hood with an avian twist. All of the characters from history have been turned into birds for some reason. It’s an interesting take on Robin Hood, and we’re not really sure where the association with birds comes from – but, it makes for a unique theme.

We wonder if it has anything to do with the popularity of bird-themed slots lately – like Birds on a Wire from Thunderkick, Happy Birds from iSoftBet and Birds! from BetSoft.

Graphics

The graphics in Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets are quite striking. All of the symbols look like they have been designed to be included in a book of fairy tales. This really suits the theme of the game, and makes for a cohesive design.

Format

There are 40 paylines in Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets. This offers players a wide range of ways to win with each spin. Players can’t wager on any less than 40 lines – but, this is beneficial because it means that players can’t lose out on any chances to win. To help cater to varying budgets, Robin Hood offers up a wide range of set bets between 1c and $2.

SuperBet

The SuperBet feature is common across many NextGen Gaming titles. It allows players to make an extra bet that will enhance the gameplay in a unique way. In Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets, the SuperBet increases the number of symbols that can turn wild. There are three different SuperBet options:

  • SuperBet Off: only the princess symbol can be transformed into a wild
  • SuperBet 1: the princess, Friar Tuck and coin bag can be transformed into wilds
  • SupeBet 2: all picture symbols (princess, Friar Tuck, coin bag, target, poster and quiver) can be transformed into wilds

Free Spins

When three or more scatter symbols land, the player will trigger the bonus game. The player will receive upwards of 15 free spins (a maximum of 25 can be triggered initially) – during which the Robin Hood Arrow Feature is active.

This bonus feature turns all sorts of symbols wild to help increase the player’s chances of winning generous prizes, and it can be triggered much more frequently during the bonus game. The free spins round can be re-triggered when additional scatters land.

Our Verdict

While the gameplay is quite simple, Robin Hood: Prince of Tweets offers up a great online gaming experience for players. It features a unique theme and generous winning potential, which is basically what most slots players are after.
