Divine Fortune is a 5 reel, 20 payline online slot game from NetEnt, which boasts three progressive jackpots and RTP of 96.69%. Divine Fortune takes its inspiration from ancient Greek mythology and features multiple exciting bonus features alongside the top notch graphics players have come to expect from NetEnt.
Look and Feel
Divine Fortune does not offer the expansive graphics or video elements of some other recent NetEnt releases, nor does it bring much new to the world of Greek myth-based slots adventures, but it does blend high quality graphics and art design with a soothing, immersive soundtrack that recalls the beauty of the ancient world.
The lower value symbols are alphanumeric, represented by sleek red lettering that recalls the Greek alphabet (while still being readable for non-Greek speakers!). Higher value symbols are represented by character portraits of notable figures from Greek myth, including snake-haired Medusa, the Minotaur, the Aetos Deus or Eagle of Zeus, and the Nemean lion. The wild symbol is a white pegasus, which can substitute for all symbols in the game except the free spins and golden bonus symbols.
The game’s play window does not feature much animation, though the reels are flanked by two white statues animated with gently twinkling lights that, together with the soundtrack, creates a very calming, soothing atmosphere.
Divine Fortune offers 20 fixed paylines, and bets are controlled through the “Level” and “Coin Value” selectors. There are autoplay and max bet options available, with the possibility of stopping autoplay spins early if required. The minimum bet per spin is 20p, with a ceiling of £100 per spin. There is a maximum coin value of 0.50 and there are ten possible bet levels.
As a progressive jackpot game, Divine Fortune can reward players with great cash prizes, and there are three jackpots on offer, but as all three are linked to bet size, it’s in players’ best interests to roll as high as they are comfortable doing. However, if you are the kind of player who chooses to focus more on stable, medium variance wins, Divine Fortune also has you covered, with a range of bonus features that pay out smaller but more regular wins.
Divine Fortune offers a number of bonus features well-integrated into the main game. The Falling Wilds Respins feature is activated every time a pegasus wild symbol occurs on the reels in either the base game or free spins modes. The player earns a free spin, plus the wild will fall one space down the reels (potentially opening up more wins) until all the wilds have fallen away. If a wild symbol lands behind a falling wild, the Wild on Wild Feature is activated, and all positions on that reel will become wild for one spin. The following spin will also be graced with two extra wilds.
Free Spins are activated by landing three or more of the hand-of-Zeus-clutching-a-thunderbolt scatter symbols. Three scatters will earn five free spins, while four scatters earn eight spins and five symbols will activate twelve free spins. Successive free spins cannot be earned from within the free spins game, but players should not feel hard done by, because the fact the Falling Wilds feature and its virtually unlimited free spins can occur in Free Spins mode too effectively removes this limit, and could in practice see players net up to x100 their stake.
Divine Fortune also offers the opportunity to win one of those tantalizing progressive jackpots, by landing three or more of the golden medallion bonus symbols. Three free spins activate on a set of reels that also include the number of scatters in the winning betline. Each spin can only the player up to 200x their stake, and a winning bonus symbol will remain sticky on the reels for one further spin. To win the minor jackpot, players must fill one row with bonus symbols, two rows for the major jackpot, and three rows to land the mega jackpot prize.
Overall, while the jackpots will be hard to reach, Divine Fortune does offer players an enjoyable gaming experience and, with a Return to Player percentage of 96.59%, there is plenty to be won even outside of the mega prize.
