Divine Fortune Slot Game
Probably the most elegant interface design I have ever come across of this much exploited ancient Greek theme. Cast in wash of soft whites, rich golds and browns this design is a pleasure to look at and is worthy of a top notch designer commissioned to finish off the lair of a wealthy entrepreneur on the top of high end block in Manhattan. The creators here have decided to do away with the much over used symbols of Zeus and Athena and opted for Medusa, Minotaur- the bull, and perhaps the lesser known deities like Nemean- the lion and Strix- the eagle. Even the lower value playing card symbols have been fashioned and styled in a way which is much classier then in any other slot game I have seen and are a welcoming sight, as opposed to my detest towards them whenever I see these present on the reels of themed slot games. The 3 rows on 5 reels hold a serendipity of free spins, wilds, expanding wilds, scatters as well as a jackpot and are framed by two beautiful classical Giovanni Strazza style sculptures, a Master sculptor who was one of the best at creating the illusion of clinging silk garments and veils.
Divine Fortune values and symbols
At first glance one gets the impression that this slot game lacks punch when it comes to payouts, and when one looks at the pay table, it may look so, too. What changes things around however, is the features’ mechanics and the frequency these occur. The playing card symbols are the lower value cards which pay out 80 coins for 5 aces or kings, 18 for 4 and 7 for 3. The queens and jacks pay even less at 60 coins for 5, 15 for 4 and 6 for 3. The higher value symbols are the Strix- eagle, which is worth 200 coins for 5, 40 coins for 4 and 20 coins for 3. The Minotaur- bull, 300/ 50/ 16 coins for 5/ 4/ 3 symbols respectively. The Nemean- lion, 400/ 60/ 18 coins for 5, 4 and 3 symbols and the highest value is the Medusa which 600 coins for 5, 80 coins for 4 and 20 coins for 3. Not too impressive one might say, but now lets take a look at what else is in the package.
Wild on Wild feature
NetEnt providers has this medium volatility slot game set on the more popular 5 reel and 3 row interface which hold 20 paylines with a maximum potential of 60,000 coins apart from its progressive jackpots. It has a bet range that goes from a minimum of 0.20 coins to a respectable 100 coins. There are a series of features that are not all that new, but enough to keep the players’ alert and attentive at all times during the game. Amongst these we find the wild that sticks wherever it lands and awards a free spin as it makes is way downwards from left to right across the reels until it disappears. More interestingly, should another follow on the same reel, it expands and again makes its way down awarding more free spins as it does. So, although the stats show a maximum of 12 respins without the possibility to re-trigger, those appearing wilds can easily double that figure This is the Wild on Wild feature and is a stage of the game where a few wins can be had as these wilds appear randomly but rather more frequently than one would expect. This is one of the features where quite a few decent medium wins can come the players way, but better still it is the most likely way to land more than 3 bonus symbols and reach the jackpot stage.
Bonus cards appear blank on the reels and each one that is turned into a coin will indicate its value on it that can vary anywhere between 10 and 200 times you bet. Plus with every coin landed, a free spin is awarded apart from the cash prize. This is not only a lucrative stage in the game but more importantly, increases your chances to land three, or more bonus medallions during the base game which will then trigger one of the three jackpot features. Here is how it works. The Minor Jackpot , or 20x your stake is yours when you land a full row of bonus medallions, for the Major Jackpot, or 100x your bet you will need 2 full rows and for the Mega Jackpot you need to collect 3 rows and that means the casino’s progressive jackpot whose payout really depends on the turnover of this slot at that particular casino. This means that players are not competing for the jackpot on a worldwide network, but rather on an in house platform. In this way the grand potential pay out may not be millions, but the odds are bettered for punters and the winning potential is still six figured!
How we see it. Conclusion
This is a game which may be frowned upon by the big rollers simply because it does not offer the big stakes and wins. There are no millions to be won here. The game has been localized and its jackpots are subject to the performance of the casino that provides it. To some, or many, it may not offer the potential of life changing windfalls. But on closer inspection this it is a medium volatility slot game with a RTP of over 96.5% that offers a maximum win of 60,000 coins excluding the jackpot. The game is extremely user friendly on all counts. A clean and clear design complemented by quality sharp graphics and a serene audio background with reel effects that would make Bentley door designers envious. The Base game, although not at all complicated, is among the most dynamic you can hope for with those frequent appearing wilds, expanding with modest, but most effective animations. Divine fortune is a great game and unless one is after that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, many will think so too.
