Microgaming's New Online Slot

Microgaming never ceases to surprise and excite fans with new online pokies almost monthly, complete with thrilling themes and exceptional graphics. And, July is no exception. This time, fans can look forward to travelling back to a rather well-known English forest, home to one of the noblest of criminals, Robin Hood. Microgaming’s Robin of Sherwood has been developed by top-notch gaming studio, Rabcat, and the folktale inspiration is evident in every aspect of the game. If you’re a fan of Robin Hood and his merry men, this pokie is going to be a hit.

An Online Pokie Sure to Excite

Microgaming is a big name in the world of online casino games with hundreds of pokies already available online at casinos around the globe. Their games are usually exceptional when it comes to sounds and graphics, and Robin of Sherwood is no exception.
This is a 5×3 pokie with a whopping 243 paylines. Get ready to time travel all the way back to Medieval England to meet Robin and his group of friends.
Robin Hood is well known for stealing treasures from the rich to give to the poor. Before he would set off on a quest, Robin would meet his merry men in Sherwood Forest, which is exactly where the pokies game is set. The forest is vividly depicted and there are characters from the tale on every reel.
One of the most exciting features about this game is the Wild Turning features. When you trigger the Wild Turning, you get to witness Robin ordering his merry men to fire arrows into the chosen reels. Once the arrows hit symbols, they turn into Wilds, significantly increasing your chances of winning some amazing prizes.

Unique Gaming Features

There are more thrilling features, too. For example, if you land three or more scatter symbols, you trigger the extra spins feature, and can win up to ten extra free spins. This is all depicted as an enthralling faceoff between the protagonist, Robin Hood, and the number one villain in the series, the ominous Sheriff of Nottingham. One of the coolest things about this feature is that there is also a sub-feature that makes it rather special in the form of the Royal Clearing Feature. With every second spin during your free spins round, Robin will help you get rid of the lowest remaining royal symbols.
There is also the Gamble Game, a mini-game where you can wager your loot and stand to double I in size or lose it all. It’s a relatively straightforward game, where you get to choose either a red target or green target. Robin then tries to hit one of the targets. If he hits the one you picked, your loot is doubled.
This latest Microgaming pokie is available for both PC and mobile gamers and there is a free play mode, so you can check it out before you decide to deposit and wager your own money. If you’re a fairy tale fan, we just know you’re going to enjoy this pokie.

Tentative approval from Tongan government for first-ever casino

Tongan CasinoA plan to open Tonga’s first ever casino by American entertainment company, Red Warrior, and investment firm Amira Union Gatti has gained tentative approval from the Tongan government.

According to Radio New Zealand, it’s reported the investors will be required to pump at least $450 million into the archipelago nation’s economy in return for permission to build their Tavake Tamafua Casino Project.

The site is expected to feature facilities which extend into the Pearl Airport Shopping Mall and Hotel and the Frangipani Luxevillas apartments. The brand new site will be known as the Aria Tourism Entertainment Gaming Resort.

Gambling and gambling establishments are currently illegal under Tonga’s Criminal Offences Act of 1926. Prime Minister Akilisi Pohiva was forced to reject a claim in January that they had secretly granted permission to the Amira-Union-Gatti and Red Warrior Entertainment group to construct the casino resort without following due legislation process.

Casino Support

However, Radio New Zealand reports that Minister Tevita Lavemaau has officially written to relevant parties to advise them that Tonga will now support the Aria Tourism Entertainment Gaming Resort. The government has plans to issue the consortium an exclusive gambling license in the next year.

A representative of Amira-Union-Gatti, Havea Gatti has stated that the firm will source over 80% of the labor that’s required to construct the Tavake Tamafua casino resort from Tonga. He further stated that the company will meet all the conditions laid out by the Tongan government by creating a further 850 jobs at the resort.

The current legislation prohibiting casino licenses in Tonga will need to be fully revoked in order for the Aria Tourism Entertainment Gaming Resort project to go ahead. This expected to draw backlash and possible protests from much of the Tongan population of 105,000 citizens according to Matangi Tonga News.

Tonga is quite a very culturally conservative place and its expected that both online casino and brick and mortar casino establishments will not be completely welcome. However, the need for investment in the Tongan economy may supersede the religious conservatism of this small island nation.
