This Shields Of The Wild mobile slot knows how to make you feel like you’re in the heat of a battle and plundering all the riches within.
Welcome to the Inner Kingdom where the renowned Knight, Sir Virilis Manblade, leads a tenacious army into battle at the request of his sworn ally, King Trenin DeSaxe.
With hues of red and gold and the glow of a new dawn where only one victor will walk away alive, this is a fantasy slot game that has tinges of Game of Thrones to it and reminded us a little bit of 300 Shields game by the same casino studio NextGen.
There’s something a little bit epic about all this Shields of The Wild slot game, even if it’s not quite up to the same standards as Dragon Maiden by Play’n GO.
How? Because one symbol will be chosen to come stacked on reel 5.
How many free spins you get depends on how often you manage to upgrade that symbol. What do we mean by that?
Simply that there are special expanding wild sword symbols that, when they show up, generally give you wins, but also upgrade that stack of symbols to the next one along the paytable giving you richer wins.
If a sword doesn’t show up, you get a second stack of that symbol on reel 4. And then Reel 3. And so on until all 5 reels are covered in one symbol.
That’s why these Shields of The Wild bonus games guarantee you 20x your bet max win. Because of those marching stacks free games where you end up with stacks of the same symbol on the last free spin.
At worst you get 5 free spins and 20x your bet and that’s it. But generally, you get a couple of upgrades, some expanded wilds and a few extra spins and wins.
If you are very lucky you get upgraded to the top high paying symbol and then you’ll feel like the victor and true conqueror of the Inner Kingdom.
Generally, you don’t, which is frustrating we’re not going to like. But that’s higher variance slot machines for you. If you don’t like it go play on the Zombie Cirus slot machine instead because only warriors are allowed here.

Wild: The slot title's logo is the wild symbol and will replace any other in order to create wins over any of the 10 paylines.
Shield Wall Feature: After any base game spin you may randomly be rewarded and any one symbol may be upgraded up to 8 times.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatters trigger the free spin bonus round. At this point you are guaranteed to win at least 20x your bet.
One symbol will be stacked on reel 5. If you get a blue sword on screen, it will expand and become wild, but also upgrade that stack.
If you don't get an expanded wild, that stack of wild will move from reel 5 to reel 4, and then so on, until you get a screen of the same symbol and the free spin ends.
At the lowest paid symbol, a screen full of them will pay out 20x your bet. Hence why this minimum is in place.
Fans of historical slots like Poltava by Elk will appreciate this nice mix of fantasy bonus game features and themes.
This does feel like warfare a lot of the time; you need to conquer those free spins and get stacks of high paying symbols to really feel like a victor.
And that can take time and more resources than you think, so bet low and only increase when you get a good free spin round. Chances are you'll get another round soon enough as they are easy to trigger.
Either way, knowing you are walking away with at least 20x your bet in the bonus games is a nice enough touch, that we can see ourselves coming back when we want the thrill of war but with a sweet deal.
