300 Shields: Go Big or Go Home
If there was a quote that all of us would remember for life, it would be the famous war scream – ‘Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty… For tonight, we dine in hell!' Just as we were hyped for the movie 300, we are equally as hyped for the mobile slot 300 Shields. From the very beginning you will properly entertained by the stunning theme and unparalleled battle feature that 300 Shields sports. In our opinion, NextGen did the movie justice by making such an amazing and savage mobile slot. If you are an action junkie looking for an action packed slot with lots of swords, shields and blood, you have come to the right place. For SPARTA!!!
300 Shields Mobile Slot Game Mechanics
Before we get into the swords, blood and the action, let’s quickly run through the basics of this slot game. 300 Shields mobile slot game features a 3×5 reel layout with 25 paylines. You can start playing this game from a mere 25p and bet a maximum of £50 per spin. As you enter the realm of King Leonidas, you will be greeted by a whole arsenal of weapons. One thing for sure, this game is not for the faint of heart. You will see blood (lots of it), weapons of mass destruction and ultimately bloodied warriors.
The movie 300 and everything that he 300 soldier’s stand for is an accurate representation of the variance and risk in this game: go big or go home, to kill or to be killed. From a bystander’s point of view, you would have to ask yourself how do 300 soldiers defeat an army with close to 100,000 soldiers? Realistically, this is madness. You would need more than a miracle or a secret weapon to stand a chance.
Well, we felt exactly the same way playing this slot game. Fortunately, NextGen Gaming has given us the secret weapon in this form of bonus feature. There is no way in the world you will be able to maintain your bank balance without the features in this game. More on it in the following section.
Firstly, we have the Wilds feature. In 300 Shields mobile slot, the Wild symbol comes in the form of the Warrior. As usual, the Wild symbols will replace all other symbols (except scatter) to complete winning paylines. As mediocre as they sound, the Wild symbols are your one true friend and we kid you not, your only lifeline while you are waiting for your free spins to arrive.
This is where all your misery comes to an end. The Battle Feature featuring scatters and free spins in this game is the only chance you got to make it out alive. To trigger this feature you will need three scatter symbols anywhere on your reels. Once you do, you will be rewarded with five free spins with a 2x multiplier on all your winnings.
This is where it gets interesting – the Battle feature consists of four stages that you will have to play through and to progress to the subsequent stage you will need shields. Remember this: more shields equals more free spins and win multipliers. Below is the list of the four stages in this game and what you can expect out of it.
- Stage 1: You will start the battle with five free spins, and every time you get Wild wins, your winnings will be doubled instantly. To progress to Stage 2, you will need to collect 2 shields.
- Stage 2: You will be rewarded an additional 5 free spins and Wild wins give you a 5x win multiplier instead of the previous 2x. To progress to Stage 3, you will need to collect 6 shields.
- Stage 3: You will be rewarded an additional 5 free spins and Wild wins give you a 25x win multiplier instead of the previous 5x. To progress to Stage 4, you will need to collect 12 shields. This is the furthest we have gotten in our experience playing this game.
- Stage 4: This is where you win the battle and come out alive. In this stage, every single Wild win you get will reward you with a staggering 300 times you spin wager. Even a standard £3 wager per spin will net you an unbelievable £1,500.
