Divine Fortune is a five-reel, three-row online slot with twenty active paylines. The game was developed by NetEnt and comes with a high volatility. The RTP for this release is 96.59%, which is above the current industry average. Divine Fortune has three jackpots. Two are fixed value and one is a progressive jackpot. The mega jackpot is reseeded with 10,000 euros plus 20% set aside from previous bets.
The progressive jackpot is won through the jackpot bonus game. Other available special features include free spins, falling Wilds and the Wild on Wild bonus. The last two in particular add quite a bit of flavour to the game. There are plenty of opportunities to win even without the progressive jackpot thanks to the special features.
Players get three jackpots to play with – minor, major and mega. Of those three, only the mega jackpot matters. It is the only progressive jackpot in the game capable of producing incredible prizes. The minor and major jackpots have fixed value payouts. They are worth 20x and 100x your total stake, respectively.
3.7% of each bet you make contributes to the mega jackpot. 20% of that contribution goes into seeding the jackpot after the one you are currently playing for is won. The progressive jackpot is not limited in any capacity.
You need three or more bonus symbols during normal gameplay to unlock the jackpot bonus game. All spins during this special feature are free. The bonus game consists of fifteen reels, each one spinning independently. Existing bonus icons are added to the board, and three spins are granted. Every time a new bonus coin appears, it resets the number of spin back to three.
Each coin that lands comes with a cash prize. Successfully filling an entire row with coins also grants a jackpot on top of that. One, two or three filled rows unlock the minor, major and mega jackpot, respectively. This makes scoring the progressive jackpot difficult, but very lucrative.
Divine Fortune Gameplay & Features
You play this game across a 5×3 board with twenty fixed paylines that cannot be turned off at any point. It is a rather standard setup, which is familiar to many players. NetEnt does offer Divine Fortune Megaways if you want something a little different. However, the Megaways version does not have a progressive jackpot to chase.
There are eleven base game symbols, including Wilds, bonus coins and Scatters. Since the game is based around Greek Mythology, don’t be surprised to see the likes of Medusa, Griffins, Minotaurs and Pegasus on the reels.
Wins are unlocked by landing three or more matching icons in adjacent positions. All winning combinations have to start with the leftmost reel and must follow an active payline. Otherwise, the relevant cash prize will not be granted.
Divine Fortune offers an RTP of 96.59%. This is above average for standard slots and other progressive jackpot titles. Much of that is owed to the high variance this game has and its other special features. They create interesting win opportunities, instead of the game being carried by its progressive jackpot.
Falling Wilds Re-spins
After all wins are paid, any Wilds on the playing field will shift down by one position. This unlocks the Falling Wilds re-spin, which is active during normal gameplay and free spins. Wilds will continue moving down by one position until no more Wilds remain.
If new Wilds land during the re-spin, the bonus is extended until the new Wild also disappears. It is possible to unlock free spins and the jackpot bonus game while re-spins are being played.
Wild on Wild Action
If a Wild land behind a falling Wild, it triggers the Wild on Wild special feature. The affected Wild expands to cover the entire reel it is occupying. After falling Wilds play their role, you will be left with two more guaranteed re-spins.
Godly Free Spins
Get three, four or five Scatters to win five, eight or twelve free spins, respectively.
During free spins, any Wild landing on the board becomes a Wild on Wild.
This drastically increases your odds of winning and prolonging the re-spins bonus.
