lay’n GO has announced its latest release, another adventure slot with its most prominent game character Rich Wilde. “Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena” is available to play online as of Thursday.
Rich Wilde has spawned a string of successful games for the slot supplier, with previous titles including Pearls of India, Book of Dead and his most recent outing Tome of Madness. Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena is a 5x3 slot that sees the explorer travel to the lost city of Atlantis in search of the legendary Shield wielded by the goddess Athena.
As in previous products, Play’n GO has created a slot with mythological origins and built on this. The theme is based around the Aegis, a fabled shield bearing the head of the gorgon Medusa, whose gaze could turn people to stone. The narrative has also been extended to the game’s re-spin feature Wilde Re-Spins, which sets winning pay lines in stone before re-spinning, giving players the chance to collect more wins through the re-spin.
CEO Johan Törnqvist commented on the new slot game: “Rich Wilde is a beloved slot character, and we know players are always ready for another adventure. But it’s important that we make sure that his games, like our other titles, are of the highest quality, and worthy of the name. Shield of Athena is an amazing game, visually stunning with entertaining features for players to enjoy; the perfect game to continue Rich Wilde’s legacy!”
