Divine Fortune Megaways slot review
Divine Fortune Megaways slot by Netent is their third remake of an original game, in this case the Divine Fortune slot, that has had the Megaways upgrade. The previous two of Piggy Riches Megaways with its huge potential, and Gonzo's Quest Megaways (equally as volatile) have proved quite popular in the player community. Here we have the classic Greek background with statues at the sides of the reels and powerful classical music and effects as our soundtrack. Will the game prove to be divine for our bankroll or cost us a fortune?
On the reels...
There are six reels of 2-7 rows each here so 64 to 117649-ways to win on Divine Fortune Megaways slot. The 6-of-a-kinds aren't high with the Gorgon at 5x bet, Lion 2x, Bull 1.5x, Eagle 1.2x with five card values paying 0.7 down to 0.4 for a full way. Lightning scatters appear on all 6 reels and the Wilds are in the form of a Pegasus and appear on the middle 4 reels only.
The Wilds do grant free re-spins though moving down 1 row at a time and the re-spins stop when the final one has left the grid. If a Wild lands on another Wild during these re-spins, you get the Wild-on-Wild feature which is simply an expanded Wild that will also move down 1 row at a time during the re-spins. This is the game's way of giving multiple wins per spin as unlike many Megaways games, Divine Fortune Megaways slot doesn't replace the winning symbols with further cascades. We do still get stacked symbols though.
Divine Free Spins
You receive 10,15 or 20 for 4,5 or 6 Pegasus scatters respectively. During these, all Wilds will now expand to give the Wild-on-Wild feature. You cannot get retriggers or extra spins, but you do now get Bronze, Silver and Gold coins added to the reels. Above the grid there are meters for each type of coin and they represent fixed prizes of 10,25 and 500x bet respectively. Collect 5 of any coin and win that prize, you can win more than one of each and there are no limits.
Divine Fortune Megaways slot looks and sounds good, there's no denying that, with a 96.09% RTP. The base game is pretty tedious though unless you can collect enough Wilds to get a series of re-spins going with 3 or 4 reels covered and this explains the low symbols pays; you rely on multiple small wins as opposed to few larger ones. The free games are quite infrequent and getting the 10 or 25x fixed prizes is common, but they again are low pays. Your only chance of a big prize is to land 3 or 4 Wilds at once, on decent-sized columns, which expand and then proceed to give you a procession of large wins until they all disappear. I am not sure why Netent picked a slot whose main selling point was progressive jackpots, removed them, and then made a Megaways game. Divine or not, I won't be spending a fortune on this slot...Review by Gamingslots
