Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena Slot Review

Released: May 2020

The Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena slot game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a well-stablished software provider, with some of the most popular slots in the industry sitting in their back-catalogue. They offer a full casino platform, but their primary focus is in providing slots, with a new title released, roughly every week. Play ‘n Go publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files, but you won’t always find that information on their website and may have to wait until you can play the slot for real. However, in this instance we know that the house edge for Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena is 3.75%.

The Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena slot has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. There are 10 paylines in total, playing from left to right.


This latest instalment in the Rich Wilde franchise sees the intrepid explorer recruit a family member and head off in search of the Shield of Athena. This gives the slot a Greek theme, with most of the symbols artifacts that you would associate with Ancient Greece.

Special Symbols

Wild – “Rich Wilde” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.

Scatter – The Scatter symbol “Cat Wilde”, Rich’s daughter. You need 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins.

Shield of Athena – The Shield of Athena has the face of “Medusa” on it. When one lands it can turn Wild and it will trigger the Medusa respins, which I will describe below.


Medusa Respin – This feature can only trigger if you land the Shield of Athena, and even then it is still random as to whether or not it will trigger. If it does, it will turn Wild and lock in place for a respin. During the respin any Shield of Athena symbols are held in position, as are any winning symbols. If you land any more Shield of Athena symbols during the respin, or if you land a win during them, those symbols will lock in place again for another respin, and it will continue to do so as until you fail to land a win or a Shield of Athena symbol. The Rich Wilde symbol will turn into a Shield of Athena during respins and Cat Wilde cannot land.

Free Spins – 3, 4 or 5 Cat Wilde symbols will trigger 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins. The Medusa Respins can trigger during the feature and the feature can also retrigger an unlimited number of times.


Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena sees the franchise return to its roots after the cluster game, Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness. This slot is much more straight forward and will probably be popular with fans of Book of Dead than Tome of Madness was. You get Wilds, Free Spins and Respins and a decent house edge, which means you don’t have anything that you won’t have seen before but what you do get is fun, engaging and easy to understand.
