300 Shields is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot game developed by software provider, NextGen Gaming. The game makes reference to the 2006 epic film, ‘300’, based on the 1998 comic series by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, which has the Spartans defending their state from the Persian army. The game includes a free spins bonus round which will have you collecting shields for increasing multiplier values.
The game is set in a large windblown wheat field with a Spartan temple at the top of a hill in the distance. The reels are set on a large stone tablet with each reel made up of a sheet of parchment. The symbols include a Persian warrior, a Persian ship, a sword and scabbard and arrows in mid-flight, as well as high playing card values that have been shot with arrows. The shield is the scatter symbol. It pays out for two or more landing anywhere on the reels and is the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. The Spartan warrior is the wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols, except the shield scatter symbol to complete a winning combination.
Landing three or more shield scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round and award 3 free spins with any wins involving the Spartan warrior wild symbol awarding a 2x multiplier. During the free spins you can collect additional shield scatter symbols for additional free spins and an increasing multiplier value. You can win as follows:
– 2 or more shields will award an additional 5 free spins with all warrior wins paying out with a 5x multiplier.
– 6 or more shields will award an additional 5 free spins with all warrior wins paying out with a 25x multiplier value.
– 12 or more shields will award an additional 5 free spins with all warrior win subject to a whopping 300x multiplier.
The free spins can be re-triggered from within the bonus round.
300 Shields is a visually rich video slot game with a free spins round that offers an extra bonus feature for extra ways to boost your number of free spins and multiplier value for bigger winning payouts.
