Ancient cultures are popular choices among slot developers when it comes to picking a theme, and one that you’ll see crop up time and time again is Ancient Greece. NextGen has got firmly in on the action with the creation of 300 Shields, which offers some of the biggest standalone prizes out there, while also backing it up with the kind of sumptuous graphics that serve to set any slot experience apart.The game itself could not be easier to sink your teeth into as it uses the somewhat standard 25 win line layout across five reels of stunningly detailed action. The aim when you’ve placed your bets is of course to land as many combined symbols as possible, with gladiators, archers, weapons and more each representing the more valuable icons, while being ably backed up by the playing card symbols. These are backed up by a wild card which will appear regularly to enhance the prizes on offer.At the top of the tree when it comes to prizes is of course the bonus round, and it is based on the old favourite of free spins. The shield is the key to entering the round and you’ll need three in view in order to launch five spins, each with a two times multiplier. In addition to spinning in wins, you’ll also be looking to collect additional shields within the round to earn more spins and bigger multipliers. Two more shields will add a further five spins and bump the multiplier up to five times. Six or more will add five more spins, this time with a big 25 times multiplier. However, you’ll see where the game gets its name – and it’s surprisingly not from the movie – when you collect twelve or more shields during the round. That makes for another five spins but this time the multiplier amount applied to all prizes is, you guessed it, a colossal three hundred times the original value!
