Are any fortunes not divine? Well, maybe those made from blood diamonds, arms deals or pharmaceuticals. Thankfully, neither of those questionable industries are the focus of the Divine Fortune Slot. This five reel, three row, 20 pay-line outing is part of the jackpot games collection from award-winning iGaming studio NetEnt. Instead NetEnt transports us to ancient Greece, where the mega fortunes on offer will be at the behest of the Gods and carried on the wings of Pegasus.
Our reel case sits at the brim of Mount Olympus, set against a bright blue sky and framed by two Goddess statues holding platters aloft to the Gods. Our high-paying symbols are some of the forms taken by Gods in the great Greek myths – a Lion, Bull and Eagle – while Medusa is the highest-paying symbol of all. Our low-payers are Jacks through Aces. Designed in the style of the Phoenician alphabet they compliment the game’s theme perfectly, as does the sound track. Ethereal and mystic, it seeks to whisk our slots game-play off to another plane. And we’re not talking Boeing.
Fittingly, Pegasus is our Wild symbol. Not only does this divine winged horse substitute for all other game symbols – except for Scatters and Bonus symbols – but also activates a Falling Wild Re-Spin which sees the Pegasus Wild shift down a space on our reels, creating multiple win opportunities for each Wild that lands. Should a Wild symbol land behind a Falling Wild, Divine Fortune’s Wild on Wild feature activates. This creates a full Wild reel, plus an extra spin in the concurrent Falling Wild Re-Spin feature.
As adventurers in a game titled Divine Fortune, we will be looking for opportunities to be getting that fortune under our belts and in our magic satchels. Divine Fortune has two dedicated bonus features for us to achieve our fortune-seeking goals, plus the extra Falling Wild and Wild on Wild features detailed in our game-play section.
When we land three or more Free Spins Scatters anywhere across the reels – symbols depicting a hand holding a lightning bolt stolen from Zeus – we trigger the Free Spins feature. All Wilds that land during the 5, 8 or 12 free spins awarded become Wild on Wilds, making it a rip-roaring Wild adventure that we won’t forget in a hurry.
The Divine Fortune Jackpot Bonus Game – already having a nice ring to it – triggers when we land three or more Golden Coin Bonus Scatters. As ever with golden coins, the more the merrier. Throughout our game-play we can see a Minor, Major and Mega Jackpot amount at the top of our reels. Landing one row of Bonus Scatters leads us to the Minor Jackpot, two rows ups us to the Major Jackpot and Bonus Scatters on all three rows delivers the fanfare-heralding progressive Mega Jackpot that will mean we can forget our chores and hit the Ambrosia at noon on a school day.
NetEnt loves its in-game bonus features so the Divine Fortune Falling Wild and Wild on Wild features offer plenty on that front. And then come the bonus features proper. Have we left a window open, or is that the breeze from Mount Olympus giving us tingles down our spines?
