Bonus Features / Jackpots

Bonus Feature: Re-Spins
When the titular Shield of Athena appears in the reels, it becomes a wild and can trigger a respin. Aegis, the now wild symbol, will remain locked, while the reels spin again. Any matching symbols or additional shields will trigger the event again. But Medusa is a fickle creature and the symbol often does nothing which is a bit disappointing. You have to wait to get into the bonus round to see the shield really start rewarding you with wins.

Bonus Feature: Medusa’s Gaze
When three or more Cat Wilde scatter symbols appear in the reels, a free spin bonus round is triggered. During this, players will be awarded free spins that can lead to further triggers of Medusa’s gaze or the previously mentioned Wilde Re-Spins. 3 Cat Wilde’s gives you 10 free spins, 4 gives you 12 and 5 gets you 15 sweet, sweet free spins.

 

During the free spins round the medusa re-spin is always active, so whenever she lands on the reels her snakes will be flexing and symbols will be locked for the respin.

 

Probably should mention Rich Wilde himself is the wild symbol.

Several nuggets of Greek mythology are laid out delicately and may go unnoticed. For example, the owl symbol is a reference to Glauca, Athena’s blue owl. The graphics are rich and lush with many finer details in the artistry.
