Online slots based on Ancient Greek Mythology certainly aren’t few and far between, but nevertheless we were excited about playing and reviewing Divine Fortune simply because it’s been developed by the genuine God of the online gambling world, the great NetEntertainment. Entering the game, it’s apparent that the graphics are going to be spectacular and that the game is mysterious, intense and dramatic (the soft but powerful background music absolutely enhances this). The design is beautiful; set within a temple in Ancient Greece and featuring stunning icon designs. The game consists of the standard 20 winning pay lines across 5 reels and 3 rows, so let’s dig deeper to find out how NetEnt have integrated the gameplay into this striking development.
Medusa is the highest value symbol in the game, followed by the mighty Nemean lion, a Minotaur and the Eagle of Zeus. Each icon is carefully designed and suits the theme perfectly. The lower value symbols are card symbols Ace, King, Queen and Jack.
In addition to the regular icons, there is a Wild which is represented by Pegasus. This substitutes all symbols except for two: the Free Spins symbol and the golden coin, which is the Bonus symbol.
Divine Fortune offers us a selection of thrilling bonus features to keep us entertained.
- Falling Wilds Re-Spins – when a wild lands and all wins have been awarded, the wild will shift below one position and trigger a falling wilds re-spin. Further wilds continue to trigger the re-spins until no further wilds appear. This occurs in the main game and the free spins games.
- Wild on Wild feature – this is triggered when a wild symbol appears on top of a falling wild. The wild will expand and cover the whole reel. This can occur in both the main game and free spins.
- Free Spins – landing 3 or more free spins symbols anywhere will activate the free spins bonus game. 3 symbols = 5 free spins, 4 symbols = 8 free spins and 5 symbols = 12 free spins. During the free spins game, any wild that lands will become a Wild on Wild (therefore expanding to cover the whole reel).
- Jackpot Bonus – this is an exciting game triggered when 3 bonus symbols or more land and are collected. The game begins and the bonus coins are randomly positioned on the reels, triggering free spins. Landing 1 full row of coins wins the minor jackpot, landing 2 full rows wins the major jackpot whilst winning 3 full rows will grab you the mega progressive jackpot. The chance to win the mega increased with the size of your bet.
Divine Fortune is a beautiful game that has a strong, stunning theme, but doesn’t detract too much from the gameplay. There’s nothing particularly innovative about the game itself; it holds many typical features found in NetEnt games, for example, fantastic bonus features, but these are loved for a reason! The game is great fun and we can confidently state that it’s the best Ancient Greece themed game we’ve played.
