Rich Wilde is back! Only this time his daughter Cat Wilde is joining him for another fantastic adventure, as they go down to find the mystical and magical Shield of Athena.
Rich Wilde & The Shield of Athena slot follows along with a series of game with the titular character of Rich leading us across the world on many adventures.
The most famous of which is, of course, the popular Riche Wilde and the Book of Dead slot, with a top win of 5,000x your bet. Here, you enter a darkly lit Temple once belonging to the Goddess of War herself as you search for the famous shield.
This Shield of Athena slot symbol will make or break how much you enjoy this game, but if you’ve like past Play’n GO adventurers, we think this will certainly bring you the thrills you are seeking.
That’s right. The maximum bet here is 100, making the max win one million in cash. Not all casinos will have this top amount, but most should go to about 50 a spin.
The good news is that this Riche Wild & The Shield of Athena mobile slot has 10 paylines, meaning that the minimum bet is only 0.10 a spin, so it’s affordable to anyone who wants to join the adventure.
Rich is the man with the plan, and also the Wild and highest paying symbol. You’ll need to fill all 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols with the wild symbol to get that top win. Sounds difficult? Yeap. But not impossible, thanks to the scatter and the shield.
Randomly on any spin, the Shield of Athena symbol (or Medusa) may land and turn into a wild. When she does (and she doesn’t always) you’ll get a re-spin of the reels, and all wilds and winning symbols will remain sticky on screen.
If you get more wilds or more winning symbols, you’ll keep getting re-spins until no more wins are found. Not unlike the Blood Lust slot for example.
But what makes this feature exciting is the fact that when Cath Wilde shows up (The scatter) she triggers at least 10 free spins. During those Shield of Athena slot free spins, the Medusa Shield will cause re-spins every time. So 10 spins can feel like 20 spins.
Better yet, we’ve retriggered the free spins often enough to know that it’s actually easier than most to play 20 free spins, with countless re-spins inside. Considering that all the wilds stay sticky on those re-spins – that’s how you get the crazy top win.
This is a very volatile game, much like The Tome Of Madness slot or Book of Dead. You don’t join Rich for a walk in the park, you do it to go for a wild ride. And this is one hell of a wild ride.

Wild: Riche Wilde is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol to create a win. 5 symbols will also pay out 1,000x your bet.
Scatters and Free Spins: Cat Wilde is the scatter symbols. Get 3, 4 or 5scatters and you'll be playing on 10, 12, or 15 free spins.
During the free spins, the Shield of Athena always turns wilds, and always triggers the Medusa Re-spin.
Medusa Re-spin: The Shield of Athena (Medusa's head) can turn into a wild symbol at any point, and double in value as a result (in the paytable.). If she does turn wild, she will give you a respins, with any wins or wilds locking into place. You keep getting re-spins until no more wild symbols (including Riche or the Shield) or winning symbols appear.
What's not to love about a Riche Wild & The Shield of Athena slot machine? Other than the fact that it's horribly volatile? But in a good way?
It's hard to explain. It's almost certainly one of those real money slot games that you need to play in order to appreciate, especially if you love a little adventure and chasing gold down long lost tombs.
The re-spins give this Play'n GO mobile slot a very energetic feel that will have you wondering why this is so volatile, as it seems you get plenty of re-spins and plenty of free spins - except watch out. The free spins are generous but can be just as dangerous as coming face to face with Medusa herself.
Personally, we had good luck and great fun playing on this Shield of Athena slot machine, we think you will too, as long as you enter knowing that only the brave will survive.
