The Spartans are back and they are as fierce as ever in a modern take on the classic NextGen game, but is there much difference? Let’s find out in our 300 Shields Extreme slot review.
Can you remember the 300 Shields slot from NextGen gaming? It’s one of their classics and probably sits up in there as one of their best.
We are back onto the golden Elysium fields overlooking the home of the Spartans, getting ready for the biggest battle of their life. Full of arrows, screaming warriors and bloody swords, you know that this is not for the faint of heart.
As volatile as ever, the top prize has increased to an amazing 17,773x your bet max win. Which is one of the highest, right next to the Thundercats mobile game.
Did we mention that top win?
300 Shields Extreme is a 5×3 reel video slot with 25 paylines, a wild symbol, a scatter that triggers 5 free spins where you can increase the multiplier from 2x to 300x by collecting scatter symbols during the bonus game.
So yes. It sounds exactly the same. It’s not that different. But it looks amazing, with updated animations that feel just a little brighter in the base game, and a little bloodier in the free spins.
Yes, there is literal blood flowing down the reels during the 300 Shields Extreme mobile slot free spins.
So for 60x your bet, you can enter the free spin bonus, which is where 90% of the big wins will be found thanks to those multipliers.
In the original you had to wait for 200 odd spins, here you can wait, or just buy your way in. Which is great, but we need to give a big word of warning here: the 300 Shields Extreme slot is an extremely volatile machine.
That means that hitting 60x your bet max win is not guaranteed. In fact, unless you manage to collect 15 free spins and 6+ scatter symbols with a 25x multiplier, you won’t see anywhere near that amount.
But the goal isn’t to get 60x your bet. It’s to get 1,000x your bet. And this NextGen slot game is for those who have the heart of a Spartan: brave, bold, and who are not afraid to die.
If that’s not you, maybe the Medusa Megaways slot game would be a little bit better.

We loved the original 300 Shields, so why wouldn't we love the 300 Shields Extreme slot on mobile which updates the graphics and animations?
Some may not understand why we gave it 5 stars seeing as it's almost the same game. Almost. There is a bigger top win of 17,773x your bet and you can buy the feature whenever you want.
In all, if you love one, you'll love the other. If you didn't, you might want to try something a little less dangerous and bloody like the Zeus Ancient Fortunes game.
However, we can see ourselves playing on this updated version, though with the word of warning to use the buy pass sparingly.
