Greek mythology may not be as popular now, but it used to be all the rage in the 2000s. We remember watching the Troy movie more times than we can count, and that’s what sparked our interest. Its numerous creatures became familiar monsters you will see in fantasy novels and video games. So if you ever wanted to step into the world of Pegasus, Medusa and minotaurs, now’s your chance!
A quiet, fantasy tune slowly plays in the background while you spin the reels. Divine Fortune’s RTP is 96.59%, which is above the current average. The slot has multiple blessings for the followers of the Greek pantheon, that come in the form of special features! Re-spins with moving Wilds, expanding Wilds, free spins and a Jackpot bonus! The last one is especially important, as it allows you to win the game’s three progressive jackpots!
Personally, we prefer detailed background images and transparent reels over what NetEnt did in this slot. A large set of reels and two statues on each side doesn’t really do anything for us. We know this developer can do a whole lot better than this half-baked attempt. Divine Fortune has a very familiar gameplay loop. Spin until you hit free spins or the jackpot, then cross your fingers for a big win!
Symbols are split into playing card royals and animals and creatures from Greek mythology. Each icon has clearly been designed with a sense of realism in mind. The minotaur is the most obvious example of this. His eyes are cow-like, and he has folds all along his neck. Pegasus is the Wild, while Zeus holding a lightning bolt is the scatter symbol. A golden Pegasus coin is the Bonus icon, and is the gateway to winning one of three progressive jackpots.
Falling Wilds: After a Wild appears on the playing field and all wins are paid out, this bonus activates. The Wild will move one down by one position, while the rest of the reels spin again. This continues so long as a Wild remains on the board. And yes, it is possible to win free spins and the Jackpot bonus through a re-spin.
Wild on Wild: Both during normal gameplay and free spins, there is a chance for a Wild to appear above a falling Wild. If this happens, the Wilds will combine, and cover the entire reel with Wilds.
Free Spins: Three, four or five Scatters will reward five, eight or twelve free spins, respectively. During free spins, any Wild that appears will automatically expand to cover the entire reel.
Jackpot Bonus: This special feature is activated when three Bonus symbols appear in any position during normal gameplay. Each coin grants a cash prize between 10x to 200x. The reels swap to a different set, where only Bonus icons can appear. To win a progressive jackpot, players have to fill the rows with coins. Completing one, two or three rows grants the minor, major and mega jackpot, respectively.
If it was any other developer, these graphics would probably be average. But since this is a NetEnt release, our expectations are higher. With a better background image and cool animations, Divine Fortune would look a lot better.
But what it lacks in visuals, it makes up for in gameplay. It has numerous special features that interact with one another, and enhance the experience! We had a blast playing it, and we will certainly continue trying our luck at winning the progressive jackpots. If you like lots of special features and progressive jackpots, then give this slot a try. If you consider the graphics more important, then try Easter Island by Yggdrasil.
