300 Shields Mighty Ways Slot Review 2022
Gear up and prepare for your toughest battle yet in 300 Shields Mighty Ways by Light & Wonder!
Armour at the ready! Light & Wonder is taking us on an epic battle against the legendary 300 Shields Mighty Ways featuring the same extreme Volatility but with expanding ways on every cascade.
300 Shields Mighty Ways is the third installment to the series and the second slot to feature Light & Wonder’s epic Mighty Ways mechanic, alongside Cluedo Mighty Ways. The previous 300 Shields titles were a roaring success with many players, but the idea of Mighty Ways sounds much more appealing and we can’t wait to get stuck in.
300 Shields Mighty Ways Base Game and Features
300 Shields Mighty Ways is a 6 reel slot with up to 262,144 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€10 per spin, with a small choice of betting options in between the two. 300 Shields Mighty Ways has a theoretical RTP of 95.99% and a maximum win capacity of 25,000x.
Courtesy of the Mighty Ways mechanic, 300 Shields Mighty Ways features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above, filling all empty positions.
Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form. After each cascade, the Mighty Ways open up the reels to a maximum of 8 high and a total of 262,144 Mighty Ways to win. At the start of each base game spin and Free Spin, the Mighty Ways is reset back to 729.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in 300 Shields Mighty Ways is the Warrior, followed by the Helmet, Ship, Sword and Arrows. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine. There is also a Wild symbol present on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 which substitutes for all other symbols except Scatters.
300 Shields Mighty Ways Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, 5 Shield Scatters in any position across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 5, 7 and 10 Free Spins respectively. Landing 6 Shield Scatters will automatically trigger the Super Free Spins round.
During the Free Spins round, all Warrior wins are doubled. Just like the previous 300 Shields titles, collecting so many Shield Scatters during this round awards additional Free Spins and an increase in the Wild Multiplier.
- 2+ Shield Scatters – Awards an additional +5 Free Spins and all warrior wins are now multiplied by x5.
- 6+ Shield Scatters – Awards an additional +5 Free Spins and all warrior wins are now multiplied by x25.
- 12+ Shield Scatters – Awards an additional +5 Free Spins and all warrior wins are now multiplied by x300.
After the final notch on the Sword is reached, landing 3 or more Shield Scatters award an additional +5 Free Spins in the current stage. During the Super Free Spins round, landing +2, +6 and +12 Shield Scatters award an additional +5 Free Spins per level but the Multiplier is already set at the maximum x300 which remains that way for the entire round.
300 Shields Mighty Ways Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.

300 Shields Mighty Ways: Our Verdict
We’ve been looking forward to 300 Shields Mighty Ways for a good while, and we must say, we were not disappointed in the slightest.
When you think of 300 Shields you think of a game that can blow up at any given moment. It can seemingly go from 0-100 in the blink of an eye, and 300 Shields Mighty Ways feels bigger and better than any 300 Shields slot before it.
In some ways that’s quite a statement, because the previous slots are somewhat of a favourite for many, and to fill their shoes would be a big task indeed. By combining the classical 300 shields with their new and popular Mighty Ways mechanic, Light & Wonder has created the perfect amalgamation of chaos and excitement.
300 Shields Mighty Ways remains a volatile beast like its predecessors though. Some bonuses had us on the edge of our seat and some just did not get the momentum that is sorely needed if you’re to see it at its best. Players outside of the UK may jump head first into the deep end with a Super Bonus buy which starts the game with a 300x multiplier locked and ready to go.
However, it’s quite a costly buy. 1,566x is not easy to part with, but in our experience when playing it, it was definitely worth it at times.
Overall, we think 300 Shields Mighty Ways is one to watch. We’re fully expecting some big win videos on this one from viewers when it releases.
