About Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena Slot
You will probably have heard of Rich Wilde from his exploits in Play N Go’s hugely successful Book of Dead slot, but this time he’s taking on the treasures of ancient Greece, with his daughter Cat in tow. As he tries to evade Medusa - the famed Gorgon with snakes for hair, who can turn people to stone with a single gaze - in this UK casino game, Rich can uncover cash prizes of up to 10,000x your stake on any spin, although it’s more likely in the Respins bonus.
You can play Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, as well as some of his other crusades, on mobile or desktop devices right here at Bet UK.

Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena Bonus Features
At any point, shield symbols that land on the reels may turn wild, which will lead to the Medusa Respins feature. Winning combinations and wild symbols will lock in place for a respin of the reels. If new matching symbols appear, they will also lock in place, with another respin taking place. This continues until no new matching symbols appear.
Medusa’s Gaze Free Spins
If three, four, or five Cat Wilde symbols land on the reels, you will be awarded 10, 12, or 15 Free Spins respectively. This round plays out as you would expect, but with the added bonus of shield symbols being guaranteed to become wild, therefore triggering the Medusa Respins at the same time. You’ve also got the chance to retrigger the round by landing three Cat Wilde symbols again, with no cap as to how many times this can happen.
