Sheriff of Nottingham 2 Review
In 2020, no one knew what to expect from iSoftBet's Sheriff of Nottingham slot as it saw the heroes being taken down by the villain. This led to one of the greatest iGaming slot series, Twisted Tales, which gave the villains the chance to sign instead of the heroes.
Fast-forward to the present day and players can journey back to Nottingham in Sheriff of Nottingham 2. This twisted story gives the Sheriff a chance to catch the pesky Robin Hood, whilst also improving on everything from the original slot.
During the gameplay, Sheriff of Nottingham 2 plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines and contains respins, stacked wilds, multipliers, modifiers and much more leading to even bigger wins of up to 7,515x the stake.
The base game takes players back to the old streets of Nottingham surrounded by cobbled streets and wooden buildings. On the reels, there are wanted posters as well as weapons used by the Sheriff to show he means business.
During the respin round is where all the gang come out to play. The Sheriff is trying to lock up Robin Hood, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, Little John and Will Scarlet. These characters appear on the reels surrounded by a dungy prison cell.
What makes this slot amazing is the voice-over of the Sheriff as he is so sinister and constantly delivers an eerie tone to the slot. This is followed by an epic musical score that definitely makes this slot feel like a Hollywood production.
Both the base game and bonus rounds have exciting gameplay that will guarantee an incredible time. In the base game, players can trigger the modifiers, whilst the bonus rounds have multiple symbols leading to satisfying moments.
All the menus can be found around the reels with the information settings at the bottom left and the spin button to the right. Non-UK players will find the bonus buy just to the left of the reels as well.
One of the biggest criticisms from the original game is easily the win potential which iSoftBet improves upon in this title. This medium to high volatility slot contains a solid RTP of 96% which is on the average level.
However, the greatest change is easily the maximum win from 1,000x the stake to 7,515x the stake. Whilst this isn't anything too high compared to other iSoftBet slots, the improvement is welcomed and can lead to rewarding wins in the game.
Sheriff of Nottingham 2 is easily better than the original and is a grand edition to the Twisted Tales series. The design is charming and terrifying at times with the Sheriff. This paired with the great gameplay due to the modifiers and respins makes Sheriff of Nottingham 2 a future classic.
Of course, the win potential could always be better but it is definitely not disappointing. This is the perfect slot for fans of the Twisted Tales series or the perfect entry point for players who have wanted to try it out.
