Riche Wilde is a character used by Play’n GO in 5 successful slots. The 6th one is here and again tells about the explorer who dives into the secrets of Atlantis. Athena used a special shield known as the Aegis. She would sometimes lend it out to her patrons, the most famous of whom is Perseus. He would use the shield to protect himself from looking at Medusa’s deadly eyes. The other powers of the shield Rich might help us uncover on his journey in ancient Greece.
The slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed pay-lines. You will win when you form 3 to 5 matching symbols on a line from left to right. You can spin the reels with wagers from 10p up to £100. Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena has high volatility and an RTP of 96.25%.
The max win per spin is 10,000x stake, which you can achieve by filling the grid with wild symbols. The latter is easiest to accomplish during the Medusa Respin feature when wilds are held in position. The other bonus feature in the game is the Medusa Gaze Free Spins. During it, you can win an unlimited number of free rounds.
The theme of the game is inspired by Greek mythology. You will head to Atlantis and search for the legendary Shield of Athena. It is known to have the head of the gorgon Medusa depicted on it probably to mark the victory of Perseus over her. Rich Wilde, who is the main character in the 5 other slots by Play’n GO, is joined by his daughter – Cat Wilde in this one. The landscape is in high definition as are all images with superb graphics on the reels.
You will see the lost city of Atlantis on the background with waterfalls on both sides of the grid. The reels are framed by a masterfully crafted temple with torches of fire on both its bottom sides. On them, you can see stylish card royals and premium symbols. The latter are the Golden Owl, the Ring of Wisdom, the Pendant of Courage and the Helm of Athena. Rich Wilde is also present as well as Cat Wilde and the Shield of Athena. The overall style of the game series is kept in this one again.
The symbols include 10, J, K and A cards at the low end. The high-value ones are the Golden Owl, the Pendant of Courage, the Ring of Wisdom, the Helm of Athena and Shield of Athena. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Shield symbols on a pay-line return 5, 100 or 500 times your stake. Rich Wilde is the most rewarding of all and pays double as mush – 1,000 times your bet for 5 on a line.
The wild substitutes for all other regular symbols except for the Cat Wild scatter. Landing 3, 4 or 5 wilds pays 10, 200 or 1,000 times your stake. So, the wild and Rich Wilde are the two most profusely paying symbol.
When you land the Shield of Athena on the reels, the Medusa Respin feature can activate by chance. It gives you 1 respin, during which the Shield of Athena will turn into wild. This symbol also becomes sticky while the rest of the position respin.
You can land more Shield of Athena symbols or score winning combinations during the respin. If you do, they also lock in position as sticky symbols and the reels will respin again. The respins go on until there are no more Shield of Athena wilds or winning combinations. In the end, all wilds and scatter symbols turn into Wild Shield of Athena symbols.
The other symbol with a significant role in the game is the Cat Wilde scatter. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of it in a spin triggers 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins respectively. You can retrigger the bonus game by landing 3 or more Cat Wilde scatters during free spins. The retriggers and number of extra added free spins aren’t restricted.
During free spins, the Medusa Respin feature is always active. You can trigger it the standard way with the Shield of Athena wild. This gives you free respins with sticky symbols and chances for big wins – up to 10,000x stake.
If you like the series with the explorer Rich Wilde in the main role, the latest addition will appeal to you. It is set in ancient Greek and includes the gorgon Medusa. Thanks to free respins with locked symbols and an unlimited number of free spins available to trigger, you can pocket 10,000x stake per spin. Wait for the slot’s release and give it a try.
