Robin Hood tends to get all the attention in stories based in Sherwood Forest but here it’s Maid Marian who’s in the spotlight in this online slot from Inspired Gaming; it comes with free spins, locking wilds and the Fortune Bet to make triggering the feature a little easier.
Maid Marian is a five reel slow with four rows and twenty fixed paylines; a jaunty tune accompanies your reel-spinning gameplay which takes place on a red standard with the trees of Sherwood in the background.
The high value symbols include the games’ logo, a treasure chest, a bow and arrow, a wanted poster and a gold ring; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The big, purple ‘Wild’ is wild and it will substitute for all others to help form winning matches except for the Marian bonus symbol and the archery target (in the free spins round).
This is triggered by landing three Marian bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five for which you will receive an initial eight free spins. The spins can’t be retriggered but look out for the archery target because if it lands on reel three you’ll receive five Locked Spins – the target and any wild symbols landing will stick in place for the duration of those Locked Spins. Don’t worry ff the target doesn’t appear during your free spins because then it will be automatically triggered on the last spin anyway.
Clicking the Fortune Bet button below the reels will double the height of the bonus symbol and increase your stake by 50%, making it easier to trigger the feature.
It’s nice to see Maid Marian get her own slot and she makes a good job of it too – it’s colourful, fast-moving, it comes with a nifty mediaeval tune and it offers the Fortune bet option to make triggering the feature a bit easier.
