Rich wild and the shield of athena slot review

The familiar character of Rich Wild, who has been present in the previous games by the slot game developer Play’N GO, is back in the new adventure in Atlantis. This means that something very exciting is going to happen and develop in front of our eyes. 

Rich Wild is not alone this time but with his daughter Cat Wild.

Together they are looking for the legendary Shield of Athena, which is lost somewhere in the deep waters of Atlantis. 


As mentioned before, the slot game is based on the characteristics of Greek mythology, this is what makes the game extremely exciting to try. The 5 reel and 3-row slot game comes with 10 pay lines. Moreover, the game is of high volatility, which can be justified by the maximum payout of 10,000x the total stake. This can be a very valid amount of cash if considering the maximum stake per spin, which can be as much as £100. 

The RTP rate of the game is 96.25%, pretty much similar to any other RTP rate of the slots by Play’N GO. There are two bonus features present in the game. Yet besides those features there are wilds, scatters and multipliers present in the game. 


There are two major bonus features of the game. One of them is the Medusa Re-Spin feature. In order to activate the feature, you have to watch out for the Shield of Athena symbol, landing on the reel. The feature can trigger randomly and each grants you with one re-spin. Also, the Shield of Athena turns into the wild during this feature. These are held in the place with other positions re-spinning. 

If there are more Shield of Athenas landing on the reels or even if the winning combinations are formed during the re-spin feature, they lock in position with the reels re-spinning. The mode goes on until no more Shield of Athena or winning combinations are created. For the final word of the round, all of the wild and scatters present on the reels transfer into the Shield of Athena Wild symbols. 

Another important feature of the game is the Medusa’s Gaze Free Spins feature. Here you will come across Rich Wild’s daughter, Cat WIld. if you see her on the reels 3,4 or 5, the Medusa Gaze Free Spins feature should be triggered. In this case, you should be rewarded with 10, 12, or 15 free spins respectively to the number of reels the symbol land on. You can retrigger this feature by landing 3 or more Cat Wild symbols during the free spins feature. There is a chance that you get an infinite number of free spins during that specific gameplay. 

Medusa Re-Spin feature can be triggered at any point during the gameplay, even during the free spin feature. All you have to do is land the Shield of Athena on the reels. This can trigger even bigger wins.


The design of the game is very beautiful and impressive. In terms of graphic and audio design, the developers did a great job. Next to the very pretty Cat and the very handsome Rich, you should come across different symbols such as royals, A, K, Q, and J. Those symbols are the lowest paying symbols of the game. 

Overall, if you are in favor of adventures and want to experience some of the best quality slot games by one of the top developers, this game is definitely the one for you.
