Forest Band Slots
The title of this slot stuck me as a little odd, what kind of band did they mean, and why was this band playing in a forest? When you see the design on the reels, it quickly becomes apparent that the theme is (loosely) Robin Hood. There is a male character (presumably Robin), a maid-Marian, a sheriff’s castle and so on. This is a 5 reel, 3 row video slot which uses a 20 win-line system. The main attraction is the free spins bonus round, which features sticky wilds. There is also the progressive jackpot game which is shared by all EGT slots.
You’ll see a forest in the background of this slot, or at least a little of it. The reels have tan background and are a mix of detailed graphics work and plain and bold playing card symbols. There are some short animations on the reels when different symbols are involved in wins. These do not expand out of the boundaries of individual symbols – making them a little small to see all of the details. Examples of great graphics include the imposing castle, target with arrow and the bag of golden coins – the hawk is also beautifully drawn. Sounds are a mix of the plain ‘click-click’ when the reels stop spinning, though to medieval tunes for some of the wins and during the sequence when the free spins game starts.
