NextGen recently launched a brand new online slot machine which is currently only available at a select few online casinos. However, as we move deeper into October 2018 it should gradually start to arrive at some of our top-rated UK online casinos. The new NextGen slot that you need to keep an eye out for is the new Shields of the Wild online slot machine.

This game has a Fantasy / Action & Adventure / Medieval theme with 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines and you can take one spin of the reels from as little as £0.10 up to a maximum of £100.00 per spin. The three main special symbols to keep an eye out for on this game are the Wild Symbols (the Shields of the Wilds Logo), the Scatter Symbols (the Fiery Sword) and the Upgrade Symbol (the Lightning Sword).

The Wild Symbols will substitute all symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbol and the Upgrade Symbol and the two main bonus features on this game are the Shield Wall feature and the Marching Stacks feature. The Shield Wall feature can trigger on any spin. When this does trigger, all symbols apart from the Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols will be upgraded to the next higher paying symbol, up to as many as 8 times, and then any line wins that are in view will instantly be paid out at the end of the Shield Wall feature.

The main bonus feature, the Marching Stacks feature, will instantly trigger when three or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere on the reels at the same time. This exciting bonus feature sees up to as many as 5 reels turning into fully Stacked Reels and this can create some huge winning combinations thanks to the Upgrade Symbols also being active. It’s also possible for the Marching Stacks feature to retrigger.

The new Shields of the Wild online slot can be launched instantly in your web browser and it’s available on desktop and on mobile. You can play on this game in the real money mode or in the free play demo mode and we can definitely recommend keeping an eye out for it over the coming weeks.
