Video Slot Review – 300 Shields - Nextgen
Welcome to 300 shields from Nextgen. - This spartan themed video slot is one of the most popular “big win” slots in our community, with a high volatility and a potential of activating a 300x (!) multiplier during the bonus rounds.
It’s not the prettiest of slots, but the mechanics and free-spins rounds still keep this slot among the most popular titles on several online casinos. Looking for special features, we do not find a lot at first glance, however, the one that we do find will keep you on edge during the free-spins for sure while you wait for that 300x multiplier to hit.
Design and Symbols
The first thing you see when opening 300 Shields, are some roman grasslands, with a building reminding us of the Acropolis in the background.
We find high paying symbols like warriors, ships and weapons. For lower paying symbols we have the standard 9-A cards. The sounds are something you would find in an epic movie, and some symbols will have their own triggering sounds whenever they are part of a winning line.
All in all the design in this game is not super beautiful or revolutionary in any way, and due to the flash technology of this slot, you can expect some pixelation and such when using a bigger screen.
The wild is a normal wild, which replaces all other symbols except the scatter.
The reason 300 Shields has become such a legendary slot, is because of the insane potential you have during the free-spins. Beyond the free-spins, we do not find too much except a wild, a scatter symbol and a gamble feature.
The free spins in 300 shields are called The Battle Feature. Activate the bonus rounds by landing three shields during the base game. You will notice the reels changes slightly, and you have a sword on the right-hand side of the reels, indicating a progress. - Now all you have to do is start spinning. You start off with a 2x Multiplier on all warrior symbols, which quickly goes up as soon as you start collecting shield symbols. For every shield you receive during the free-spins you will increase the “shield count”. Get five additional free spins every time you land three scatter symbols during the round.
- Gather 2 shields to initiate the second series of five free rounds, and all Warrior symbol wins are multiplied by 5
- Gather an additional six symbols to get five additional spins and warrior wins with a 25x multiplier.
- Lastly, if you manage to gather an additional 12 shields, you activate a whopping 300x Multiplier on the warrior symbols.
We do find a gamble feature in 300 shields, where you can either double or quadruple your winnings. You can choose either colour or suit of a hidden card.
