Forest Band Slot

Initially the title ‘Forest Band’ may make you assume that it is some sort of music themed slot where a rock band plays a concert in a forest, but once you load the reels it quickly becomes apparent that it is loosely themed on the legend of Robin Hood.

Robin Hood was a highly skilled archer and swordsman who, along with his group of outlaws that were known as the Merry Men, stole from the rich to give to the poor – and now it’s your opportunity to take from the rich online casinos and escape through the forest with big winnings intact.

Set in Sherwood Forest with the riverside clearing viewable (where the fight between Robin Hood and Little John took place), EGT have done a fantastic job designing the background and symbols with Robin himself and Maid Marian leading the way. Played across 5-reels and 20-paylines, Forest Band offers ample winning opportunities thanks to the free spins mode, gamble feature and standard EGT progressive – but does it live up to the high standards of Merry Money from Barcrest and Lady Robin Hood from Bally which are also based on the legendary figure?

Robin Leads the Way

The symbols in Forest Band are very impressive, designed in a detailed and realistic manner as if you are looking at photographs of the legendary outlaw, with a total of twelve symbols that you’ll encounter along your journey through Sherwood Forest accompanied by enchanting sounds when you create winning combinations.

The most striking symbol of all is the Sheriff’s castle which also acts as the Wild with the ability to substitute for all but the Scatter symbol. The Wild can only appear on the second, third, fourth, and fifth reels so don’t get discouraged when it doesn’t appear on the first reel and when it forms part of a winning combination an animation plays out that zooms in on the castle and takes you through the large wooden entrance where a huge treasure chest of gold is shown off. Speaking of the Scatter, this is the target which is needed for the free spins mode and when these are part of a win an arrow is loaded onto a bow and fired right into the centre spot – nice aiming!

Of course there is the main man himself, Robin Hood who is the highest valued symbol of all with five on a single line worth 500x your stake. He is joined by his love interest Maid Marian who flutters her eyelashes while clutching onto a shining sword when she is part of a win and a fearsome Falcon, spilled bag of gold coins, a quill, warning horn, and standard Ace to Jack playing card symbols are included too.

Free Spins that Hit the Target

The biggest wins in the forest come when you land the Scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels during the same spin. This sees a congratulations message pop up on screen stating that you have won 10 free spins, with thick leaves covering the background.

While it’s bitterly disappointing that additional free spins cannot be retriggered, EGT have made up for this with the addition of a Wild feature. This means that any time the Wild symbol (Sheriff’s castle) appears, it will remain locked in place for your remaining spins – something that always results in large wins especially if you land some in your first few spins!

Once all ten free spins have been played a burning arrow is fired into a tree with your total winnings displayed on screen and added to your balance.

Thoughts on Forest Band

As always, Euro Games Technology have done an amazing job designing the reels as they are set in Sherwood Forest with stunning animations playing out accompanied by enjoyable sounds when winning combinations are formed, but all in all Forest Band doesn’t differentiate much from the rest of their real money slots and it certainly isn’t a patch on other leading Robin Hood themed slots that are available.

It contains the standard gamble feature (where you can risk wins worth less than 35x your stake) and the Jackpot Cards progressive, but the main reason to spin the reels in Sherwood is the free spins mode which rewards you with ten free spins and the Wild feature - which never fails to see you dance your way out of Sherwood Forest clutching a big bag of gold coins!
