This is madness! No, this is 300 Shields! Yes, this 5 reel, 25 payline game from NextGen will likely remind you of a certain movie that came out a few years ago featuring well-chiseled Spartans defending their lands against the invading hordes from Persia. Now you too can relive the glory of this great struggle in this cool slot game with an impressive free spins feature.
300 Shields is a very cool slot that is sure to appeal to a broad spectrum of slot players, and male slot gamers in particular. The first thing that will strike you about the slot is the excellent presentation. The stellar graphics, great effects (it's quite effective when you put together a winning payline), and music will make you feel like you are in the heat of battle. Adding to the presentation are the symbols which include various weapons, a trireme, a solider, and other icons associated with ancient battles.
This game's major winnings are reliant on the free spins feature, which is activated by spinning three or more scatters anywhere on screen. At first you earn 5 free spins and during these spins the game keeps track of how many shield symbols you collect by landing them on the reels each spin. You don't actually win any money by collecting shields but they add to a meter that keeps the free spins going and the multiplier, which starts at 2x, increasing. The multiplier is invoked for every winning payline containing the wild Spartan warrior symbol during the free spins round. Collect 2 shields and you will get an extra 5 spins with the multiplier increased to 5x. Collect 6 shields for another 5 spins with a multiplier set to 25x and finally collect a total of 12 shields to get another 5 free spins with a colossal 300x multiplier, at which point you will be praying for that Spartan warrior symbol to appear. What's more, the feature can be re-triggered by spinning 3 or more shields on a single spin, which awards you another 5 spins at the current level.
Get ready to march into battle by selecting the number of paylines (you may play up to 25), and the bet level. Once you have done this, give the "spin" button a push to get things underway. A "bet max" and autospin features are on hand to make things a bit easier for you.
