300 Shields is one of NextGen Gaming's most recognisable titles. It is one of their memorable, historical themed games, and one which contains a total of 5 reels and 25 paylines in all. Of course, 300 Shields is themed on the Greek city state of Sparta, and their heroic battle at Thermopylae.
Players will certainly have a reasonable degree of control playing the 300 Shield slot. It will permit players to select coin values of 0.01 up to 0.20 in all, whilst at the same time allowing them to adjust the number of lines they play with. Minimum and maximum wagers stem from 0.01 per line, per spin, up to 5.00 per spin in all, which is nothing, really. At most, you can win around about 1,000 your total bet on this slot.
Players should keep an eye out for the randomly triggered feature in this game. The solider symbol is a standard wild icon, in that it can replace all other symbols save for scatters. However, at any point in the game, a soldier may come to life and start cutting his way through other symbols on the reels, presenting you with multiple wilds to win with.
The shields in this game act as scatter icons. If a player lands 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels, they won't just pocket scattered wins, but also trigger a free spins bonus round in 300 Shields.
A gamble feature has also been included in this video slot, and can be activated after any winning spin via the gamble button.
What you get in the bonus round is pretty standard fare. The game offers you 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier at the beginning of the bonus round. Should you manage to land more scatter icons on the reels, then you will win larger multipliers, and additional spins. In fact, it is entirely possible that you could win as much as 300x your total bet in this video slot, largely during the free spins bonus round on its own.
