How the video slot works

The Shield of Athena game is a five-reel, three-row slot with a design style you might be familiar with from some of Play’n GO’s other video slots. Choose your bets from €0.10 per spin all the way up to €100. There are ten different paylines along which you’ll need to match symbols to land a win.

Symbols in the Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena online slot are made up of the A-10 card symbols and various ancient Greek themed symbols. There’s the Helm of Athena, the Ring of Wisdom, the Pendant of Courage, the Golden Owl and the Shield of Athena itself.

The Shield can payout 500x your stake for a line of five but may also transform into wilds. Wilde respins can occur randomly during the game, turning the Shield wild and activating respins. The Shield symbols and any winning lines will stay in place until no more appear at which point, your big win will be paid out.

Other Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena bonus symbols include Rich Wilde himself. The intrepid explorer substitutes for all other symbol but will also payout a massive 1000x your stake for a line of five. Cat Wilde acts as the scatter in the game, and if she appears three times or more on a single spin, you’ll unlock the Shield of Athena free spins round.

Players will receive between ten and fifteen free spins depending on how many scatters they land. During the free spins round, the Shield of Athena will always activate the respins and wins can quickly stack up as the reels fill up with wild symbols.

This is a slot with very high volatility, but the maximum jackpot is a huge 10,000x your stake.
