About Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena
It’s perhaps strange to say that the name of Rich Wilde has meaning within the online slots world, but that being said, anyone who has played a Rich Wilde slot knows why. Play N’Go have created a character and every single game that the character has been in has been extremely impressive, the most popular of which is the Book of Dead slot where the character made its name and burst onto the slots scene. However, this time Rich isn’t on his own, this time his daughter Cat has come along to aid him on his toughest task yet. Here, Rich acts as the wild (or ‘wilde’) symbol and Cat acts as the scatter.
If you’re well-versed in Greek mythology, you may recognise a number of the symbols on show. However, the big wins come in the bonus rounds of this slot.
Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena Bonus Features
Players can activate the Wilde Respins round anytime during the standard game and if matched up with a Shield of Athena symbol it will reward players with a respin. The shield symbol has now turned into a wild and any wilds or winning paylines will be locked into place while the rest of the reels respin. You may recognise this feature from other similar games across our online Megaways slots as the feature is one that is highly regarded. In this case, the reels will continue to respin until the player fails to land a winning combination on the reels.
The Free Spins bonus round in this slot is aptly named “Medusa’s Gaze” and if players land three or more of the Cat Wilde scatter symbols, they will activate the bonus round and receive up to 15 Free Spins. This is a standard Free Spins bonus round but it combines with the Wilde Respins round which is now activated on every turn which means that players could end up spinning a lot more than 15 times.
