300 Shields is a five reel twenty five pay line slots game from NextGen that has a theme rich with all the icons of ancient Greece. There is an introduction to the game in the form of a menacing burst of music, and the welcome screen is punctured in places by the holes made by many arrows.
The symbols are rich in colour and artwork, and include weapons and warriors and gladiators. The theme of 300 Shields is similar to an earlier film of a 300 strong Spartan army going into battle against a ruthless Persian King.
Lots of Arrows Shot
The lower value symbols are the classic playing cards from Nine and Ten through to the Ace, and each card is drawn in an ancient style and pierced with an arrow. The medium value symbols include a cluster or arrows flying straight at you, and a bloody sword lying on top of a leather scabbard.
The two symbols with the highest value are a wooden ship with sails and oarsmen, and an ancient Greek warrior pulling back his bow, ready to shoot the arrow. In fact he does just that, if you find two or more Warriors, and the arrow will be shot right out of the frame. The background of the screen of 300 Shields is a wheat field under blue skies, with temples in the distance.
Great Animations in this Slots Game
The Wild symbol in 300 Shields slot is the Warrior, and he can replace all other symbols in a winning combination, apart from the Scatter. When the Wild is part of a winning combination, the Warrior becomes animated, and whips his sword out while yelling a war cry.
The golden Shield is the Scatter symbol, and also has its own animation when you find two or more of them on a reel. The Shield that forms the symbol will open, and a golden armoured and helmeted Warrior leaps out, waving his sword and shouting.
When you find three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, the free spins game in 300 Shields is unlocked. You will be given five free spins at once, each of them carrying a multiplier of two. You can collect extra Shield Scatters during the bonus round, which will give you even more free spins and an even bigger multiplier.
Multiple Scatter symbols appearing in 300 Shields will activate extra free spins, and a special screen will pop up to tell you that you have won a prize. During the spins you will see a stream of blood rolling down each reel, which certainly emphasises the warlike theme of this game.
Free Spins with Multipliers
Landing on two or more Shield Scatters will win you another five free spins, with all Warrior wins multiplied five times. If you find six or more Shields, you will receive another five free pokie spins, with all wins worth a twenty five times multiplier. If you manage to find twelve or more Shields all at once, you earn another five free spins, but also a huge multiplier of three hundred on your wins. This is the biggest win you can find in 300 Shield, making this as lucrative as online blackjack or even the online bingo and slots games have to offer.
In the free spins game, a sword appears to the right of the screen and keeps count of your Shield by raising the level of blood that appears on the sword’s blade. You can play 300 Shields for free for a while until you want to wager real money.
