300 Shields Slot review

300 Shields is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot that is powered by NextGen Gaming. The game features a Spartan theme and is based on the blockbuster movie 300. If you liked the film you will love this slot game. The game has become very popular due to the fact that is it known as a very high variance slot (pays out a lot) and you can get free spins will a colossal 300x multiplier!

The game features scatter symbols, wild symbols and a bonus round. If you get 3 or more Shield symbols (scatter) anywhere on the 5 reels, you will activate the Battle Feature Free Games feature. During the free spins feature, you can raise your ‘Shield Count’ to increase the Warrior win multiplier up to 300x. You can do this by getting Shields during the free spins.

The Battle Feature Free Games feature starts you off with 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Then it gets brilliant:

  • If you collect 2 or more shields, you will gain a 2nd series of 5 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
  • If you collect 6 or more shields, you will get a 3rd series of 5 free spins with a 25x multiplier.
  • If you collect 12 or more shields you will get a 4th series of 5 free spins with a 300x multiplier.

Finally, you can retrigger the feature again and again if you get 3 or more shields during the free spins. As you can see, a 300x multiplier is unique and unheard of on any slot game. The game pays out quite a lot too which is great. We recommend you play at the minimum stake initially as the game is fast paced and can gobble up your bankroll quickly.

300 Shields has become a bit of a cult favourite amongst players looking for a high variance experience – I tend to dabble with it quite often and have won over 600 times my stake a couple of times. Saying that, I tend to come away with a loss – that’s the nature of highly volatile slots. If you fancy playing high variance games, you should also try Viking Vanguard and Zeus by WMS Gaming – both brilliant slots in their own right.
