300 Shields Slots

300-Shields300 Shields gives you a pretty good idea of the topic that is covered by this slot machine, being themed around the Spartans and inspired by the legendary battle between 300 of their best warriors and the entire Persian army at Thermopylae. The “300” movies released in the last decade or so have made this battle even more popular, and of course it did help that Gerard Butler played the role of the Spartan king. The game is not themed around the movies though, just around the battle.

The action in 300 Shields takes place on a 5 reel setup, with 25 lines on them. The game’s free spins, Battle feature, up to 300x multipliers, wilds and scatters all insure that you’re going to have the time of your life with this game. Top payouts normally go only up to $500.

Features of 300 Shields

300 Shields comes with a range of cool features, with both wilds and scatters, with free games and with some of the biggest multipliers that I’ve ever seen in a slot machine, though obviously only in certain conditions.

First of all, let’s look at the features which are common in modern slot machines and which are also found in 300 Shields. The Warrior is the wild symbol in this case and just like you would expect from it, it’s capable of replacing regular symbols and it also offers prizes directly. If at least two Warriors are arranged on an active line, and from left to right, prizes are offered which are worth between 5 and 1,000 times the line bet.

A Spartan Shield is the image you will see in the scatter, the other major symbol used here. This is both the trigger for the Battle feature, which gives you free spins, and it also awards some of its own cash prizes. Appearing in random places, without being required to occupy a certain line, the Shield will pay up to 100 times the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The free spins are part of Battle Feature. You get it started when you have 3 or more Shield scatters present in the same round. You start off with 5 free spins and with 2x multipliers which come when the Warrior wild contributes to a combo.


The truly great part about this game is the use of the Shield as a way to increase the wild’s multiplier. As you collect additional Shield symbols, you get better and better multipliers, plus additional free spins.

You get an additional 5 free spins when you collect 2+ Shields, while all the wins obtained with the wild’s help benefit from 5x multipliers.

With 6+ Shields collected, you get a third series of 5 free spins, plus 25x multipliers for the wild wins.

Get 12 or more Shield scatters, and you will get yet another series of 5 free spins, plus a truly incredible multiplier of 300x for any win in which the wild symbol had a contribution.

Another way of getting additional free spins is by getting another 3+ Shield scatters at the same time, in which case you get another 5 rounds for free.

Betting options and jackpots

The game is cheap to play, but that also means that its prizes will be on the low side. You can wager up to $0.20 on each active line, with the total for 25 lines going up to $5.

The prizes are best when they come from the scatter symbols, which award up to 100 times the bet, so up to $500. The prizes which can benefit from the 300x multiplier go up to 250x, or $50, but during the free spins they can go up to $15,000 if the wild gets involved and the other requirements are met.

Design and symbols

It’s a beautiful game that you’re getting in 300 Shields, a slot where you really get the feeling that you’re right there, on the fields of Sparta. The reels are the ones that hold the war related symbols, but the surrounding graphics are quite peaceful. Even the playing cards are fun to look at here, each one resembling a Greek letter and having an arrow sticking out of it.


Symbols: Warrior (1,000 coins, wild), Shield (100x bet, scatter), Archer (250 coins), Trireme (250 coins), Sword (200 coins), Arrows (200 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

Even though it’s not directly themed around the movie “300”, the game has the same inspiration and a nice design to go with the impressive features. You will definitely want to try your luck with it, and maybe you can get the 300x multiplier during the free spins.

You will find 300 Shields at any online casino which chooses to use software from NextGen, playable either for free or for real money.
