iSoftBet’s Sheriff of Nottingham
iSoftBet has released its latest slot game Sheriff of Nottingham, the first in the supplier’s new Twisted Tales Series of games.
Set in the middle of Sherwood Forest as Robin Hood and his Merry Men try every trick in the book to avoid the evil Sheriff and steal his riches, the feature-filled title offers four in-game modifiers which are triggered whenever Robin Hood delivers a Royal Letter. Choose one of the three letters to reveal a Bonus Add, Sheriff Wilds, a Wanted Spin or a guaranteed Win Spin feature.
Aside from the random modifiers, Sheriff of Nottingham has two bonus rounds. Robin Riches Free Spins are triggered when bonus symbols land on reels one, three and five. During this feature, between two and all five reels will spin in-sync to give epic wins.
The Wanted Respins are triggered when five or more Merry Men land on the reels, with each new character resetting the respins. If the evil Sheriff lands, he will gather all the bounties in view to open up more spaces where more villains can be captured. At the end of the round all characters reveal their loot, with the total added to a player’s winnings.
“Sheriff of Nottingham hits the bullseye with every magical bonus round we’ve developed,” said iSoftBet head of games Mark Claxton. “This feature-rich game is another immersive title from our games team, who continue to develop the best content on the market. With four randomly triggered modifiers and two lucrative bonus rounds, Sheriff of Nottingham is another thrilling addition to our ever-growing slot portfolio.

Pragmatic Play’s Dance Party
Pragmatic Play has released its latest slot title Dance Party.

“Dance Party is a high energy, fun-filled game designed to immerse players in an atmosphere packed with the bright lights and catchy tunes of a nightclub,” said Pragmatic Play chief commercial officer Melissa Summerfield.
“Transporting players back to the glory days of disco, the highly-volatile progressive free spins mode can mean the trip to the tiles is a real success, paying out up to 36,450 times a player’s stake for a night you’ll never forget."
Booming Games’ Gladiator Arena
Booming Games is taking players to the battlefield in its latest slot release Gladiator Arena.

Play’n GO’s Riches of Robin
The other Robin Hood-themed game of the week comes from Play’n GO in the form of Riches of Robin.
The game features Robin Hood and his gang of Merry Men, including Little John, Will Scarlet, Alan-a-Dale, Friar Tuck and the fair Maid Marian.
The 5x3 reel format game sees each symbol on the grid actually house its own reel strip, as opposed to one per reel, meaning 15 individual strips and the possibility of many more combinations on the grid.
The game also features instant prizes on the reels in the form of moneybag symbols, the first time Play’n GO has included such a feature.
“We’re very excited about the game’s release,” said Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist. “We’ve already seen players enjoy it immensely as an exclusive title, and now the rest of the market will get the chance to experience it as well.
“Our regular players will get the chance to experience two brand new concepts to our games, the reel individual reel strips and instant wins, as well as enjoying a brand new Play’n GO adventure.”
Nolimit City’s Gaelic Gold
Nolimit City has expanded its portfolio with the release of a new Irish-themed slot Gaelic Gold.
The 3x3 slot showcases lush green valleys, hill-top mountains and rainbow dreams, with five pay-win lines and Nolimit’s xNudge feature, which increases a multiplier with every nudge.
The Rainbow Spin Bonus sees players pick and click their way into increasing more spins, added multipliers and ‘rainbow lines’ to increase the reel set and offer higher returns.
“Bringing the xNudge mechanic into a 3x3 reel set creates an exciting video slot that also changes its characteristics for each won, or bought, bonus round,” said Nolimit City product owner Per Lindheimer.
Endorphina’s Troll Haven
Endorphina has released a new Nordic-themed adventure slot Troll Haven.
Taking players across mountains, fjords and hidden caves in search of treasures, Troll Haven is a 5-reel, 3-row and 25-payline slot, where the main Troll character is the wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter.
One or more wild symbols appearing as a substitute symbol in a winning combination double the win. The Scatter is the Tree of Life symbol, with three scatters on the reels triggering free games. When the feature is triggered, the player can choose the number of free games 23, 16, 10, 5 and their associated multiplier up to x10.
“The slot is already available for just a few casinos during the pre-release and we must say it easily captures players’ attention and shows great results,” said Endorphina head of customer accounts Gretta Kochkonyan.
“The players are loving the flavor of the Scandinavian mythology and Nordic forest. This game will allow players to enjoy the process of gambling and to become friends with a kind troll, whose friends – some fantastic forest creatures - will definitely help to boost their luck while they’re spinning these reels.”
