No matter which theme NetEnt picks for its game, you know the title will be a smashing hit. The Egyptian-themed Mercy of the Gods is just like that: a title that takes the ordinary theme and puts an amazing spin on it that leaves the audience speechless. From the outside, the slot is nothing special: 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. However, once you get inside, the magic begins.
In terms of appetizers, Mercy of the Gods packs a serious punch. And we’re not talking about the visuals, or technical details only, but the overall experience of anyone that dares to try out this game. You will have a wide array of special features designed to jazz up your time spent within the game, including Free Re-spins, Wilds, and Gift of Wealth jackpots. Oh, and a badass progressive jackpot!
Securing grand wins will be a tricky feat where you’ll need logic, luck, and RNG in your corner. The bets range from €0.20 and go all the way up to €100 per spin. Considering this is a progressive jackpot, your chances of scoring are slimmer than in other NetEnt titles, but the reward is better. The 96.64% RTP and high volatility guarantee endless fun! But hey, outside of the jackpots your potential win is 1,600x your stake so, not bad for an Egyptian slot, right?SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
The beauty of this game lies in the perfection of all elements that are exceptional both on their own and in unity. You will find exceptional artistry and masterful execution of cutting-edge technology from any angle you choose to look. The icons are a combination of card suit symbols and familiar Egyptian relics such as scarab beetle paired with two cobras, a statue of Tutankhamun, and the Horus falcon. The top tile is the female explorer that’s also the protagonist of the game – if you manage to score 5 of these, you’re looking at a 1,600x your stake win.
The magic happens on a 5×3 grid. The reels are overflowing with elegantly styled tiles that generate wins from left to right, while thanks to the outstanding visuals and soundtrack you will be captivated from the moment you first click the Spin button.
Right below the reels, you will notice the settings bar where you can adjust coins, bets, and locate the Max Bet option. You can invest from €0.20 to €100 per spin. There is also the Autoplay button where you can adjust the number of spins if you do not want to waste time on clicking every 10 seconds. The game was released for desktops and mobile devices simultaneously.
Wild – Wilds in Mercy of the Gods have the usual Wild traits: they can appear anywhere on the reels and act as substitutes for all symbols save Scatters and Bonus symbols.
Gift of Life Re-Spins – This feature is triggered with the appearance of at least one Wild. When these tiles appear on the reels, they do not go away immediately when the round ends, but simply slide down the reel for one place until they disappear from the set, thus ending the Re-spin. If more such symbols appear during the feature, more re-spins are coming your way!
Gift of Double Wilds – The feature is triggered when you land two adjacent wilds on a single reel during Gift of Life Re-Spins. When this occurs, the entire reel turns Wild and reinitiates the re-spins.
Free Spins – The Eye of Horus is the symbol to look for if you want to get to Free Spins. Specifically, three Scatters are needed to initiate the round with 5 Free Spins – but if you collect 4 or 5, you will get 8 or 12, respectively. During Free Spins, all Wilds that land on the reels trigger Double Wilds and Gift of Life Re-Spins.
Gift of Wealth Jackpot – This feature is the crown jewel of the game. There are 3 different jackpots that you can hit: Minor, Major, and Mega (this one being the progressive jackpot). However, the path to riches has two parts: first, make sure to collect 3 Bonus symbols that will trigger the jackpot rounds. The jackpot rounds are 3 spins during which all collected Bonus tiles are randomly thrown onto the reels where they remain until the three spins end. The main point is to collect as many tiles as you can so that you can trigger one jackpot. If you fill one row with these icons, you will get the Minor Jackpot (20x your stake). Two full rows mean Major Jackpot (100x your stake) is yours, while 3 rows filled by these little golden icons bring you the progressive jackpot!
Slots that focus on the ancient Egyptian civilization are dime a dozen nowadays, so finding a gem that is worth your time is a real task. Thankfully, with NetEnt, that task is done for you and there is no doubt that Mercy of the Gods will provide you with endless fun and excitement.
If pyramids and Egyptian gods are your cups of tea, and you are not averse to innovation, NetEnt’s gem is the perfect choice for all occasions. Just choose a bet level, click Auto Play, and let the adventurer in you spread its wings.
As we already mentioned, the RTP is estimated at 96.64% and volatility is high, so don’t expect an easy climb to the top of the pyramids. But the view is great!
