Archer video pokie from Playtech is based on the legend of Robin Hood whose prowess with the long bow was well known. The high paying symbols are the characters from the legend depicted as portraits. They include Robin Hood, his love Lady Marian, his adviser Friar Tuck and his archenemy the Sheriff of Nottingham. The playing card icons designed in medieval calligraphy are the low paying symbols. Robin Hood stole gold from the rich to give to the poor and this gold is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. A pair of flaming arrows is the scatter symbol.
Three or more flaming arrows anywhere on the reels award 7 free spins that can be retriggered. The highlight of the Archer pokie is Expand and Split feature. This is triggered when any symbol in a winning combination has an arrow border and there is a flaming arrows symbol anywhere on the reels. Then the symbols with the arrow border will expand to occupy all positions on the same reel. But they will not replace the symbols already there. Hence both symbols can independently contribute to winning combinations. During the free spins the Expand and Split feature gets better. There is no need for the flaming arrows scatter symbol to be present. Archer also offers the optional Playtech gamble game.
