In the fifth Instalment to the Rich Wilde series, the much-loved adventurer unearths the secrets of Atlantis. Powered by Play'N Go, Riche Wilde and the Shield of Athena offers no-nonsense gameplay and tons of bonus features – much like the other games in the collection. Legend has it that Athena used a special shield called the Aegis, which she sometimes lent to her patrons. Perseus is said to have used the shield to avoid looking Medusa directly in the eye. So, is that why the monstrous Gorgon is depicted on the shield? Perhaps following the explorer on his journey will uncover the truth.

How to Play Shield of Athena Slot

In Shield of Athena, it's not just Rich that you'll be teamed up with. This time, you'll also meet his daughter Cat Wilde, who actually looks a little old to be a child of Rich’s, but we'll let that slide.

The slot is simple to play – even for beginners. The action takes place on a standard grid with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed paylines. Before getting stuck in, the first thing to do is set your wager using the plus and minus icons at the bottom of the screen. Depending on your bankroll and preference, you can bet anywhere from 10p to £100 per spin.

Features and Benefits

Are you a feature-hungry gambler? If so, you won't be disappointed with what's on offer here. Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena is all about the Free Spins and Re-spins which work both separately and together. First up you've got the Medusa Re-spins feature, which is triggered when the Shield of Athena wild lands on the grid. You'll then be awarded 1 respin with the standard Shield of Athena icon transformed into wild. During the respin, all the Shield of Athena symbols, plus any other winning icons, turn sticky. If any more land during the round they are also held in place and the reels respin again. Respins continue until no more winning symbols or Shields appear on the grid.

Next up, you've got the Medusa's Gaze Free Spins, where the Medusa Respin also makes an appearance. This feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 Cat Wild scatters anywhere on the grid. You'll then begin the round with 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. The Medusa Respin feature remains active throughout the Free Spins round, which is a nice touch.

Bonus Symbols

Visually, Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena is impressive. This comes as no surprise, though, as Play’N Go have put the same time and talent into the rest of the series. When you open up the slot, you'll see gushing waterfalls behind the grid, and you'll hear a theme-fitting soundtrack play in the background. The reel set is encased within an ornate gold frame and takes centre stage. The symbols are as high-quality as the rest of the visuals and are split in to high and low payers. The high payers are represented by a Pendant of Courage, a Golden Owl, the Ring of Wisdom, the Helm of Athena and the Shield of Athena. The lower value icons are stone-crafted 10-A royals, which also fit perfectly with the slot's theme. Rich is the regular wild and the most lucrative symbol of the bunch – landing 5 of him of a payline will result in 1000x your total stake!
