Theme and Background
This NextGen Gaming slot game is based on the infamous Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC! The ancient battle was between more than 7000 Greek allied warriors, led by King Leonidas of Sparta, and close to 150,000 Persian warriors under the authority of Emperor Xerxes!
The legend of the 300 springs from the betrayal of the Greeks by a local man named Ephialtes who let the Persians know of a secret path into the Greek mainland.
King Leonidas and 300 of his most fearsome warriors held the line against the Persian army to allow the balance of the Greek warriors to fall back and defend their homeland against the encroaching enemy.
300 Shields Extreme offers players a chance to win up to 17,773x stake across 25 fixed paylines. You can set yourself up for greatness by choosing to stake up to €12.50 per spin, which could see you win more than €222,000!
The standard reel wins are worth fighting for too with 5x Warrior symbols offering up 1000x your stake and 5x Scatter symbols paying out a staggering 2500x stake plus triggering the Free Games feature!
The setting of 300 Shields Extreme is a peaceful Grecian landscape which much like the historical setting will soon be drowned in shouts and clashing steel.
The reels are populated with a screaming warrior Wild and a bloody Shield as the Scatter. The high-value symbols comprise an Archer, a Longboat, a Sword and a volley of Arrows. The slot machines low-value symbols are the fairly common A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols but battle-worn and stuck with arrows in keeping with the theme.
The soundtrack for 300 Shields Extreme is surprisingly good. It is a rich driving piece of music with drums, trumpets, violins and vocal overlays that put in on par with any big period piece score.
Landing three or more Scatters on the reels will trigger the Free Games feature. Begin the round with 5 free games and an x2 Win Multiplier on all Warrior symbol winning combinations.
Claim more Free Games and level up your Warrior Win Multiplier by collecting Shield symbols on the reels:
- 2+ Shields: +5 Free Games and Warrior wins get x5 multiplier
- 6+ Shields: +5 Free Games and Warrior wins get x25 multiplier
- 12+ Shields: +5 Free Games and Warrior wins get x300 multiplier
Once the max multiplier of x300 has been achieved any three or more additional Shield symbols will add +5 Free Games to your available total!
Buy Pass Feature
Some casinos choose to offer the 300 Shield Extreme Buy Pass option. This feature allows you to skip the spins and buy your way into the Free Games fray. The cost of this feature is set at 60x your current stake. Given the potential to unlock up to x300 multiplier, the question is whether or not you believe the gods smile upon your quest this day?
Some bow before the gods and those who shake their fists at them, if you fall into the latter camp, then the Gamble feature is for you. Take the treasures you have wrested from the reels and bet it all on a 50/50 Red/Black bet or test the fates by selecting a Suit.
If you win on a Red/Black bet your stake will be doubled, but if you win a Suit bet, you will receive x4 your stake in return! However, lose the bet and you return to reels empty-handed, but ready to spin again!

CasinoWow Game Verdict
300 Shields Extreme is a rewarding slot machine with massive win multipliers, high volatility gameplay and a maximum win of up to 17,773x stake. It does, however, suffer a little from an outdated set of graphics and spins animations. That being said, it is great on mobile and even offers you the option to set where you’d prefer the spin button to be, which is immensely useful depending on your circumstances.
