In its latest Peter & Sons (P&S) collaboration, Swedish provider of online gaming solutions, Yggdrasil Gaming, has launched its second YG Masters title inside of one month, Robin – Sherwood Marauders.
Based on the legendary heroic outlaw of English folklore who was known for his generosity to the poor and his extreme dislike for the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, the 6-reel, 4-row video slot, which according to Yggdrasil is “a title that all slots fans will love,” offers 4,096 paylines that pay all-ways and a €700,000 max win.
Set in Sherwood Forest where Robin Hood and his band of merry men await the wicked tax collectors, the high volatility GATI-powered game features Avalanche Cascades, increasing prize Multipliers, expanding Wilds and “Super Free Spins,” and a 96.10 percent RTP (return to player).
Players can choose to bet as little as €0.10 all the way up to €20 per round to pay for fixed wins that range from 2X to 40X the bet, while lining up the game’s symbols that include card suits as the low pays, followed by a club, a lute, an arrow-filled quiver, crossed swords, the nasty tax man, and Robin Hood himself for the premiums.
During gameplay, Avalanche Cascades are activated by landing a win on the reels which causes the winning titles to disappear. After that, new symbols drop filling the empty spaces for a chance to create even more winning combinations. Cascades end when new wins no longer line up. A win multiplier increases by +1 with each new cascade and resets to its starting value of 1x with each new spin.
When at least three bonus symbols land on the reels, 10 extra spins are awarded, with an additional two spins added for each scatter symbol. In addition to a multiplier being applied to all wins, the feature also includes expanding Wilds which grow in size to cover the entire reels.
“Super Free Spins,” meanwhile, launches when treasure chest scatter symbols fill the progress bar which is displayed below the reels in the base game. When that happens, 10 extra spins are awarded and multipliers start at random value and expanding wilds land on the reels more frequently.
“Peter & Sons produce instantly recognisable content and are masters at developing premium titles with unparalleled design and graphics coupled with highly entertaining gameplay.” He added that Robin – Sherwood Marauders, which stars a legendary character that is known worldwide and is “packed with gripping features,” is “a title that all slots fans will love,” and that they can’t wait to see what more P&S will develop via its YG Masters.
The new game is developed in conjunction with Armenian-based game development studio and powered by the Cherry AB subsidiary’s state-of-the-art GATI (Game Adaptation Tools & Interface) technology, which is used by all its YG Masters partners, allowing them to produce cutting-edge content and rapidly distribute those products.
Also commenting on its “unique take on one of the world’s most famous folktales,” which offers players a thrilling and engaging experience while chasing big wins,” Business Development Manager for Peter & Sons, Yann Bautista said…
“Like all our titles, Robin – Sherwood Marauders is beautifully illustrated with charming characters and music and fun features that keep players on the edge of their seats. Creating our content via GATI ensures a rapid development process and wide distribution and we couldn’t be happier to be part of the YG Masters program.”
The launch follows the successful March 29th release of Johan Legendarian, the first P&Ss game through the YG Masters program, after the up-and-coming studio agreed to implement Yggdrasil’s popular Gigablox mechanic in upcoming titles via the game engagement mechanics (GEM) offering.
