300 Shields Extreme Slot

Based on ancient Battle of Thermopylae, where a band of 300 Spartan soldiers staged a heroic rearguard action, 300 Shields Extreme is 5 reel, 25 payline slot game from NextGen Gaming. The highlight of this epic is the Battle feature which awards an initial 5 free spins. Collecting shields can increase the tally though, as well as boosting a multiplier up to a maximum of 300x. Play on all devices from between 25p and £62.50 per spin.

The reels here are set against gentle green fields and marble columned buildings. There you’ll find A to 9 royal values plus arrows, swords, a ship and an archer. Land 5 of the latter 2 symbols in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 10 times your stake.

Better still is the Warrior Wild. This substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter and offers payouts of up to 40 times your stake per payline. The Warrior Wild can also deliver some big multipliers boosts if you manage to trigger the bonus feature.

To trigger the Battle feature, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the shield scatter on the same spin. After a payout of 5, 12 or 100 times your total stake, you’ll play 5 free spins. The payout of any winning combination that includes a Warrior Wild receives a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled. Collecting shields during the feature adds more free spins to your total as well as increasing the Warrior Wild multiplier:

  • Collect 2 or more shields to add another 5 free spins with a 5x Warrior Wild Multiplier
  • Collect 6 or more shields to add another 5 free spins with a 25x Warrior Wild Multiplier
  • Collect 12 or more wilds to add another 5 free spins with a 300x Warrior Wild Multiplier

Standard re-triggers are on offer here too. Landing 3 shield scatters on the same spin adds another 5 free spins to your total.

If you don’t fancy waiting to trigger the Battle feature, then you’ll be offered the option to use the Buy Pass feature. The price is shown at the side of the reels – 60 times your stake.

We liked 300 Shields Extreme. The comic book visuals and the stirring soundtrack are well constructed. The base game action isn’t the most exciting but the Battle feature can really explode into life thanks to the expanding wild multipliers. This game is as volatile as they come – but it does offer payouts of 17,770 times your stake on each free spin with the 300x wild multiplier!

If you enjoy the ancient theme, then 300 Shields Extreme is a battle you won’t want to miss. In case you’re wondering, there is an original, 300 Shields, which is virtually the same but without the Buy Pass feature and older graphics/animations.
