NetEnt proves that December slot releases don’t have to be all about Christmas. As the Swedish studio revives its Divine Fortune slot with a Megaways™ revamp. The game plays out in classic Megaways™ fashion, with each reel featuring a variety of symbols on each spin. Like Christmas Megaways™ from Inspired Gaming, Divine Fortune Megaways™ does away with the top reel that features on many Megaways slots.
All Wilds appear on the reels. And each Wild that lands triggers the Falling Wild Re-Spins feature. As is the norm when you play Megaways™ slots, the Free Spins game launches when you land four or more Scatters across the reels, with up to 20 free spins to be won. The Ancient Greek theme that ran through the original Divine Fortune slot returns. With Medusa and Pegasus doing battle over who awards top payouts.
Pros & Cons
- Epic jackpot on offer.
- The Falling Wild feature appears randomly.
- Bonus Win symbols award bet win multipliers.
- No cascades as with other Megaways™ slots.
- Megaways™ feature can leave reels with only two symbols.
- Need four Scatters to trigger the bonus game.
How to Play
You access the chip selection options by clicking the coin symbol, and with betting ranges starting from 0.10 there is plenty of scope for switching up or down according to your betting strategy. All symbols must match left-to-right to land winning combinations but rather than needing to be set across payline patterns they simply need to be adjacent to each other. When you play Megaways™ slots they often follow on from the original Bonanza! Megaways slot in using Cascades to disappear winning symbols and allow new symbols to fall in their places to form new winning combos. There are no Cascades in Divine Fortune Megaways, with NetEnt instead opting for two separate in-game Wild features to augment base game wins.
The Grecian styling that proved so popular in the original Divine Fortune slot returns, with NetEnt using angular 10s through Aces that would sit happily in the Greek alphabet as the game’s low paying symbols. The high payers are reserved for some beasts that were revered by the Ancient Greeks, namely the Eagle, Bull and Lion, which award x1.2 – x2 your stake for landing six adjacently on the reels. As in Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena, the Medusa symbol is the top paying game symbol in Divine Fortune Megaways™, awarding x5 your stake for landing six symbols adjacently. The symbol payout values aren’t huge, but the Megaways™ concept involves multiple Way wins, which accounts for the low symbol payout values. Pegasus is the game’s Wild symbol, triggering the Falling Wilds Re-Spins bonus and Wild on Wild features detailed in the bonus section.
Divine Fortune Megaways features two base game bonus features triggered by the Pegasus Wilds as well as a dedicated Free Spins bonus round.
