300 Shields – The Highest Variance Slot Ever?

Hidden away deep in the depths of the Bet365 Games slots page is a game that you may never have come across. The 300 Shields slot machine is an “online only” slot with a Spartan theme, made by Next Gen gaming and it is a total beast of a game. Why? because I’d argue that it is the highest variance slot game I have ever played. It deserves respect and if you are lucky you can get rewarded with free spins with a massive 300x multiplier!

But be warned. By high variance I mean HIGH! Very high. For those not up on these things, variance equates to risk. A high veriance slot machine will mostly dish out small wins with the occasional monster. A low variance machine will usually dish out more lowish wins but rarely will you hit a life-changer. You should always play high variance slots with caution – they can suck you dry in no time – and they are designed for the slots player who likes to take a risk for bigger rewards. 99 times out of a 100 you will be lucky to break even.

The key to 300 Shields is the free spins bonus, trigerred by getting three or more scatter Shield symbols anywhere in view. You receive 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier. On each spin, if one or more scatter shields appear it builds up a thermometer-style shield count to the side of the game. Get 2 scatters at any time during the initial 5 spins and you get 5 more, this time with a 5x multiplier.

The Shield count continues and when (or more likely “if”) you reach 6 shields you get 5 further spins with a 10x multiplier. If you get to 12 shields at any time then you get 5 more spins only this time with the 300x multiplier. The free spins can retrigger at any time.

If you get the 300x multiplier – which is extrememly rare – you have every chance of a monster hit. For example, 2 more scatters at 300x will pay you 600x your bet. Get a retrigger at 300x and not only do you get an extra 5 free spins at 300x but you’ll receive 1500x your bet back!

If you want to give it a try, head on over to Bet365 Games and give 300 Shields a spin. And the best of luck!
