The Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot is one of NetEnt’s most successful game releases of 2020. With European players enjoying the game for months already, it’s only fair that the US players can now enjoy the Megaways slot as well. So far, the Megaways version of the Divine Fortune™ slot is only available in the regulated states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. However, I expect more US states to follow throughout 2020.
NetEnt’s journey in the US casino market
It was halfway through 2014 that NetEnt announced the company’s entrance into the online casino market in New Jersey (USA). In
2015, the first contracts with US suppliers were signed. In September 2015, NetEnt received a transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. It was only 4 years later that NetEnt received its permanent Casino Service Industry Enterprise licence for the New Jersey market.
In those 4 years, NetEnt signed deal after deal and went live with each operator thanks to several transactional waivers. On the list of operators are Bwin.party, the Borgata brands, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Resorts Casino, Golden Nugget, Pokerstars, Tropicana, Hard Rock, DraftKings and Tipico.
Almost one month after NetEnt was finally granted its permanent casino licence for the New Jersey market, the company’s casino licence for the online casino market of Pennsylvania was approved as well.
During the process of entering the Pennsylvania online casino market, NetEnt signed deals with Penn National Gaming and Parx Casino. In July 2019, months after receiving their casino licence from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), the NetEnt Games went live.
Also added to the list of Pennsylvania operators are DraftKings and the Cordish companies for the launch of the NetEnt Games with PlayLive end of 2020. It’s only a matter of time for the NetEnt Games to appear with other operators in the state. Pennsylvania is the second large US state to regulate online casino and with almost 13 million people, it is the fifth-largest state by population.
2nd Megaways™ videoslot launch
The Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot is one of NetEnt’s most successful game releases of 2020. US players will definitely enjoy the game now it is available in the US. The game went live with operators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The Megaways slots have taken the iGaming market by storm since the first game was launched in 2016. It’s mainly thanks to Big Time Gaming for licensing the underlying mechanic to other developers that the series now consists of tens of Megaways slots.
“We’re excited to have brought our Megaways™ collaboration to the US. Aligning our top titles with the iconic Megaways™ feature brings something totally new to the US market. Twin Spin Megaways™, has been firmly embraced by players. I’m sure we’ll see the same with Divine Fortune Megaways™,” said Jeff Millar, Evolution Commercial Director, North America.
The Divine Fortune™ slot ranked as the no.1 video slot in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in 2020. Therefore I’m sure that the Megaways version of the game will be embraced by the US players. For now, only players from New Jersey and Pennsylvania have access to the Divine Fortune Megaways™ video slot. However, Evolution Commercial Director Jeff Miller announced a packed roadmap of releases across Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. So it’s not unlikely that the game is soon available in other US markets. This while many US states are also in the process of regulating online gambling.
The Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot marks the supplier’s second stateside Megaways™ launch, following the release of Twin Spin Megaways™ in January 2021.
Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot gameplay
It’s the immense popular Megaways™ engine that provides a dynamic and fun gameplay for slot lovers! With 2 to 7 symbols on the 6 reels, you never know how many ways to win there’s going to be. The maximum ways to win can go up to 117649 and shows at the top of the game during each spin.
Falling Wilds Re-Spin
One of the video slot features popular in the Divine Fortune™ slot is the Falling Wilds Re-spin feature. Just as in the original, each Wild symbol shifts down one position on the reels when a Wild symbol appears on the reels with a Falling Wilds Re-Spin as the result. This slot feature is available during both the main game and during Free Spins. As usual, Falling Wilds substitute for all symbols except Free Spins symbols and Bonus Win symbols.
Wild on Wild Feature
Popular for its big win potential, the Wild on Wild feature returns to the reels in the Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot. It’s during this slot feature that you see Pegasus’ beauty when it expands completely to cover the entire reels.
When a Wild lands on a position that is already occupied by a Falling Wild symbol, it’s time for the Wild on Wild feature. This happens during both the main game and during Free Spins.
After the expansion of Pegasus, each Wild symbol shifts down one position on the reels. A Falling Wilds Re-Spin offers up to 7 Falling Wilds on one reel.
New in the Divine Fortune Megaways™ videoslot is the Free Spins feature. It’s only in the Megaways™ version that you enjoy Free Spins as the original Divine Fortune™ slot has no Free Spins feature available. 4 or more Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels are responsible for the activation. Free Spins offer expanding Wilds and 3 different Bonus Win symbols.
