Play N Go got in first, though, and the Wilde team works together to seek the treasure of Medusa, with Rich Wilde acting as wild as his name suggests to substitute for other symbols while his sister Cat Wilde digs deep as the game’s Scatter to launch the game’s bonus feature. Watch out for the Shield of Athena, which springs to life to lock in place for respins against the moody backdrop of a buried temple.

How to Play

The good thing about the bet toggle in Play N Go’s desktop version of Rich Wilde and the shield of Athena slot is that it is directly beneath the reels. To set your bet toggle, select the left or right arrows up and down to increase or decrease your bet. As with much modern online slots play, though, Play N Go has optimised the betting interface for mobile, with the mobile slot version operating a handy slider. When happy, click the green spin button to get this adventure rolling. Match symbols left-to-right across the game’s 10 paylines, not the biggest number of paylines you will ever find but still enough to score decent wins, especially when the bonus features come into play.


The fearsome way Medusa’s head snarls into life when the Shield of Athena symbol lands is reminiscent of similar animations on NetEnt’s Rise of Maya slot, another adventure yarn slot with ancient treasure up for grabs. Though it doesn’t offer direct payouts here, it does launch the Medusa Respin feature (see slot bonuses section below). Ancient looking 10s through Aces make up the game’s lower paying symbols, which pay out x3-x10 your stake for five-of-a-kind. But it is the larger paying Statue, Coin, Ring and Helmet that will really be lighting our fires with payouts up to x100 your stake from a five-of-a-kind Statues. Rich is once again WIld, as his name suggests, and substitutes for all symbols except Cat WIlde, who appears on all reels and acts as the Scatter.


Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena features a randomly-triggered base game feature as well as the dedicated Free Spins game that is the staple bonus of the Rich Wilde slots series.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Medusa Re-Spin

The Shield of Athena symbol, decorated with Medusa’s head, can snarl to life on any spin it lands. It acts as a Wild or Wilds, which lock in place together for any winning symbols for the Medusa Respin. Any further wins lock in place, as do any further Shield of Athena symbols. If Rich Wilde lands, he transforms into a Shield of Athena symbol and also locks in place. The respins finish when no further winning symbols land.


Free Spins

Landing three, four or five Cat Wilde Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the Free Spins feature. 10, 12 or 15 free spins are awarded, in which the Medusa Re-Spin feature is also active.
