Shields of The Wild slot by SG Digital is a medieval-themed game that plays out on a 5x3 grid with 10 fixed paylines. The dynamic gameplay this title offers will no doubt appeal to a wide range of players.
The Shield Wall feature is triggered randomly in the base game. Once activated, the arrows will be shot at the reels, upgrading all the visible symbols. If lucky, you could end up with a lot of Wilds and the maximum payout of 250 times the stake.
In this day and age, players have come to expect this bonus round out of pretty much every slot that lands on the market. With this release, entrance to a Free Spins round is granted to those who get at least 3 Scatters on the grid. Interestingly, there is no specific amount of free spins awarded. Instead, the feature relies on the upgrade mechanics to run its course.
To begin, a stack of symbols is added to reel 5 and their value depends on the number of Scatters landed. On the other hand, the Scatters are replaced with upgrade symbols. When Free Spins start, the symbols in your stack are upgraded to the next value each time you get an upgrade symbol. If you don’t land an upgrade, your stack moves one reel to the left, and an identical one is added to reel 5. The game ends when you have full stacks on all 5 reels. Your total win will depend on how many upgrades you had. You are guaranteed to win at least 20x the stake in this round.
