After the release of the super hit Divine Fortune in 2017, NetEnt finally offer its Megaways upgraded version. Although the sequel is not a progressive jackpot game, there are great features in it. You can enjoy up to 117,649 ways to win during its rounds.
NetEnt plans the release of this game for 24th November 2020. It lets you relish in shifting down and expanding Pegasis wilds, respins and more. There are free spins with 3 fixed bonus prizes.
Divine Fortune Megaways is a video slot with 6 reels, 2 to 7 rows and 64 to 117,649 ways to win. On each spin, a random combination of symbols land on each reel and this affects the number of win ways. Pay with wagers in the range of 0.10 to €100 per spin on desktop, mobile phones and tablets. The RTP of the game is 96.09%, the volatility – medium to high.
There are several bonus features. One of them is the Falling Wild Respin, which you trigger with a wild. It makes the wild move 1 position down per respin until it leaves the reels. A wild landed behind it during respins activates the Wild-on-Wild feature. It makes the Pegasus wild expand and also moves one step down on each respin. Landing more wilds will extend the features and grant you more wins.
You can activate between 10 and 20 free spins, which you cannot retrigger. A wild landed on a free spin directly activates the Wild-on-Wild feature. There are also 3 Bonus Wins you can grab by collecting their respective coin symbols 5 from each. These give you 10, 25 and 500 times your stake payouts per collecting and you can win them many times. The winning potential of Divine Fortune Megaways is around 12.500 times the stake. This is quite generous.
Visually, Divine Fortune Megaways is attractive and in the Ancient Greek theme. A female statute on each side flanks the grid in the base game. These statues get replaced by two lions’ statues during the free spins. The reels take almost the whole screen. On them, you can land elegantly and classy looking card royals from 10 to A on a light sandy background.
There are also lions, Medusa, Griffins and other traditional creatures from Greek mythology. The soundtrack is dramatic and atmospheric. It mixes with the sounds of wins and the stopping of reels. During the free spins, on top of the reels, you will have displayed the 3 bonus prizes. The images are detailed, 3D and look impressive.
The pay symbols include Greek-style card royals at the low end – 10, J, Q, K and A. These pay from 0.50 to 0.70 times your bet. The premiums are the creatures from the Greek mythology. These are the Griffin, Minotaur, Nemean lion and Medusa. Their payouts are 1.20 to 5 times the stake for 5 of a kind combinations.
The wild is Pegasus, which substitutes for all regular symbols. It helps you complete winning combinations. The scatter is the wreath with Zeus’s thunder.
To get wins you need 2 to 5 of a kind symbols on adjacent reels landed left to right. The 6 reels and 2 to 7 rows per reel can result in 64 to 117,649 Megaways.
There are plenty of modifiers and bonus features in the Megways version of Divine Fortune. If you land a Pegasus wild on a reel, you will trigger the Falling Wild Respin feature. The latter begins after any created wins are paid. The wild will shift down by 1 position on each respin. This repeats until the wild disappears from the bottom of the reel. It has the potential to lead to many wins. The reels spin one more time after the last wild has dropped from them.
If you are lucky and get a wild behind a shifting wild during a Falling Wild Respin, you trigger the Wild-on-Wild feature. This leads to Pegasus expanding to cover its full reel, which can be between 2 and 7 symbols high. Then, the created wilds will again nudge one position downwards on each spin. This repeats until the last one disappears from the grid. You can have the luck to land more wilds during the feature and extend the respins.
Landing 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the reels on one spin or respin activate 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. Unfortunately, you cannot retrigger them. Landing a wild symbol on a free spin immediately triggers the Wild-on-Wild feature. It plays with an expanding Pegasus, which shifts downwards like in the base game.
The other extra during the free spins is the Bonus Wins, which you can win by landing bronze, silver and gold coins. You can win the 3 Bonus Wins respective to the type of coins you have collected. You need:
5 collected bronze coins to win the Bronze Prize worth 10x your total stake;
5 collected silver coins to win the Silver Prize worth 25x your total stake;
5 collected gold coins to win the Gold Prize worth 500x your total stake;
So, during the free spins, you will collect bronze, silver and gold coins. Once you have been rewarded any of the bonus prizes, its respective meter resets. Then, it starts from the beginning. All bonus rewards you can win many times on a single free spin.
Divine Fortune Megaways is a nice upgrade of the jackpot slot with life-changing prizes. The modifiers work well and can lead to great payouts. The maximal win per spin is not little– 12,500x stake. If you like the original, try the Megaways version and may the Greek gods be with you!
