What is “300 Shields” mobile slot about?
NextGen Gaming’s 300 Shields is a HTML5 based mobile slot, meaning that no downloadable app is required to play and it can be accessed on popular mobile web browsers such as Safari or Chrome. The game is based on the blockbuster movie ‘300’ and therefore a theme of warriors is set. The slot offers 5 reels and 25 paylines, with a potential jackpot of 1,000 coins during normal play. Up to 25 coins can be played and each coin can have a value of between $0.01 and $0.20. The game features scatters, wilds and free spins with a battle feature bonus game.
Look & Feel
300 Shields has nicely done graphics and gameplay with pretty decent animations as well. The game features a moving 3D backdrop which keeps the game from feeling cartoony and boring. The symbols are decently done but there’s nothing really outstanding about the gameplay or atmosphere created for this slot.
Game and Winnings
A wager of 1-25 coins must be placed to initiate the game of which each coin can be worth as little as $0.01 to $0.20. This allows for a minimum and maximum bet of $0.01 and $5.00 respectively. A normal-play jackpot of 1,000 coins can be won and the pay table can be viewed to see the other pays and winning combinations. The game follows conventional slot rules and pays left to right (except scatters) with the largest winning combination being paid out per winning pay line.
The symbols include playing cards 9 through to ace, arrows, a sword, a longboat, an archer, a warrior (wild), a shield (scatter). Matching 5 warriors will win you the largest prize of 1,000 coins.
The warrior will substitute for all other symbols to help complete winning combinations, it should be noted that the warrior stacks on the battle feature discussed below.
The scatter pays any, with a potential of 100x your bet for 5 shield symbols being matched. The free games/battle feature bonus is activated when 3+ scatters appear. If you happen to spin more shields during this bonus game, you will be awarded with multipliers and more free spins, the ‘shield count’ will also contribute to the multiplier that is applied to winnings during this mode and a multiplier of up to 300x can be activated. This allows for potential to win up to 300,000 coins if you are extremely lucky as getting to the 300x multiplier is a very rare case indeed.
