“This Is Sparta” yells Leonidas in the film ‘300’ as he and his small band of Spartans defend their state against Persian god-King Xerxes and his overwhelming numbers in the Battle of Thermopylae. The 2007 film is based on Frank Miller’s iconic comic of the same name and this online slot from NextGen Gaming references both.
300 Shields is a five reel, twenty five payline slot set against a backdrop of wind-blown wheat field and Spartan temples; the low value symbols are standard playing cards but pierced by arrows to provide that battle worn look. The higher value symbols are flying arrows, a sword and scabbard, a Persian ship and a warrior. The wild symbols is a Spartan warrior and the scatter symbol is a shield.
Free Games Feature
There’s only one bonus game in 300 Shields and it’s triggered by landing three or more of the shield scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. If you manage this you will be awarded three free spins with all warrior wins doubled (that’s wins involving a wild symbol).
There’s more to this bonus however and you task during the free spins phase is to collect more shields with the following results:
- Two or more shields will win you another five free spins with all warrior wins subject to a 5x multiplier.
- Six or more shields will win another five games with warrior wins now worth a 25x multiplier.
- Twelve or more shields will get you five more free spins and an impressive 300x multiplier.
More free spins can be won at any time in the bonus game by landing three shields on the same spin.
300 Shields is nice looking game with an interesting bonus feature; the graphics may look a little plain but if you land a couple of wild symbols and a couple of shields on the same spin, the resulting sword-swinging animations look quite spectacular.
£0.02 is the minimum bet per payline but it’s also possible to bet up to £250.00 per spin if you’re feeling flush.
