Out now


Robin Hood


Sherwood Coins: Hold and Win is a 5×4 reel slot with 25-paylines and a maximum win of up to x3,000 the player’s bet. 






Low value symbols are represented by playing card royals, from Jack through to Ace. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.2 and x2 the player’s wager. 

Meanwhile, Robin Hood characters Lady Marian, Alan-A-Dale, Friar Tuck and Little John depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.4 and x20 the player’s preferred wager. 

Scatter archery target symbols can drop into play on reels one, three and five, triggering eight free spins if three land on the same turn. This will also result in an instant payout of x2. 

Gold coin symbols are also available, displaying either monetary values between x1 and x15 the player’s bet or jackpot prizes of mini (x20), minor (x50) or major (x100). 

Additionally, gold coins can appear with ‘boost’ text. These special symbols will collect all coin values present on the reels and apply them to the player’s winnings. 

Landing six or more coin symbols on the same spin will activate the hold and win game mode. 

Finally, Robin Hood wild symbols can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than coin symbols and archery target scatters. 


In the hold-and-win game mode, players are given three spins to land as many coin symbols on a reel set as possible. Each additional symbol that drops into play will reset the number of spins to three. 

Once all three spins have been used, the player will receive the accumulated value of all coin symbols on the reels, in addition to any jackpot prize coins that have dropped in. 

Players can win the game’s maximum win of x3,000, the grand jackpot prize, if they manage to land a full reel set of coin symbols during the bonus game mode. 

Additionally, mystery wanted poster symbols can only appear in the hold-and-win game mode, revealing either monetary values or jackpot prizes once the feature finishes. However, if a boost symbol is active on the board, the mystery symbol will be revealed immediately. 


Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, said: “We are excited to launch Sherwood Coins, the next instalment in our Hold and Win series, following on from the success of Wolf Land and Pirate Chest, as we look to continue a strong Q4 and finish the year in style.

“The variety of different features and symbols should ensure the game is another strong addition to our catalogue.”

Anton Ivannikov, Product Owner at Playson, said: “We’re really excited to show our players how hard we’ve worked on the visual aesthetics in Sherwood Coins.

“The game’s charming soundtrack and colourful background provides immersive surroundings, taking players on a journey for uncovered treasure in the renowned woodland. Alongside the inclusion of the Boost and Treasure Chest features, we have demonstrated our commitment to providing creative gaming experiences for our players.”
