Before we even get into Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, we feel players need a little history lesson into the Shield itself. This amazing artifact was awarded to her most loyal followers, and its powers are mysterious, but it definitely protects its wielder from harm.
Join Rich Wilde as he comes back and raids the caverns in search of other treasures and the shield. You see Medusa, the famous snake-haired Gorgon on the shield, and this is perhaps to pay tribute to Perseus, who defeated her with the help of the Aegis (the real name of the shield).
With Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, you are looking at 10 paylines with a 5×3 grid. The RTP (return to player) is also slightly higher, sitting at 96.25%. What really attracts us to this slots game is the max payout. The number is a whopping 10,000x your initial bet, which is a pretty big win.
Rich Wilde Shield of Athena includes pretty standard features, with the wild symbol being the one you really want. It can potentially compound and lead up to the max payout of 10,000x your bet.
Then we have the respins in slot. The plarespins are triggered whenever the Shield of Athena itself (which is the wild), lands on your grid. When the free spin happens, all the Shield of Athena symbols and other winning combos will turn sticky (they are locked in place).
When you gather more of these symbols, they will also hold their ground in Rich Wilde Shield of Athena. The respins go on until there are no more winnings symbols or shields to be had. Only then will you get your payout. As you can probably tell, the respins are crucial to earning you that max payout.

Then we have a different kind of respin, the Medusa Gaze free spin. You need to land the Cat Wilde scatter (Rich Wilde’s daughter) 3,4 or 5 times. You then earn yourself 10, 12, or 15 free spins, respectively, evening out your chances in Rich Wilde Shield of Athena.
The betting range for Rich Wilde Shield of Athena is pretty standard, starting at 0.1 and going up to 100. To get that max payout or to give yourself a chance at it, you need to go all-in with the 100.
The volatility of slot is high to put it lightly, which is why they also increased the payout limit by two times Play’n GO’s standard. You don’t need multipliers or any fancy feature to ring in the jackpot in this game. All the features, the free spins, and respins are easy enough to understand.
Definitely make sure the RTP is at 96.25%. This gives you the best chance since the game is highly volatile.

As for the theme in Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, take a trip to ancient Greek ruins in what appears to be an underground temple or shrine.

The impressive graphics, visuals, and symbols plus the adventurous music in the background is what catapults to the front of the line in terms of slots games. This isn’t his first adventure, and we can only imagine what Rich Wilde will get up to in the future.
