NetEnt announces new jackpot video slot Divine Fortune™
In the style of Hall of Gods™, Victorious™, and Muse™, it is today that NetEnt announces its new video slot. Not just a game, though, but a brand new jackpot video slot that will be offering a Minor Jackpot, Major Jackpot, and a Mega Jackpot. At first, I thought (and I hoped) that the Divine Fortune™ slot was going to be a pooled jackpot, but asking around it appears that the Divine Fortune™ Jackpots are all going to be local jackpots. The Divine Fortune™ slot itself will be just another showcase of what NetEnt is capable of, bringing a great mix of online slot features including a truly exciting Jackpot Bonus Game.
I don’t have much information about the new jackpot video slot yet, but knowing all NetEnt Games by heart, I can easily figure out what the Divine Fortune™ slot will be all about just by watching the above preview video. Before I’m going to tell you all about what to expect from the Divine Fortune™ slot gameplay, I think it would be worth telling you more about the NetEnt Jackpots so you know what the three Divine Fortune™ Jackpots are going to be worth.
At this very moment, the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot is on top of the iGaming jackpot list offering a dazzling €6.1 million jackpot. Hundreds of online casino jackpots are available in the iGaming industry, but it’s the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot that passed all of them. The Mega Fortune™ Jackpot is the most popular NetEnt Jackpot, but the Mega Fortune Dreams™ Jackpot is catching up in popularity. Both can be found in the iGaming Jackpots top 10 regularly while the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot has been on top of the list for months this year just until it was won by an anonymous player 5 weeks ago. With this, I have been describing all pooled jackpots except for the Arabian Nights™ Jackpot which is the oldest of them all and the slowest. It takes this pooled jackpot much longer to become a multi-million jackpot and is, therefore, less popular than the above three.
There’s no doubt that the above NetEnt Jackpots are most popular with players, but there’s more jackpot fun to enjoy at the NetEnt Casinos. This jackpot fun consists of local jackpots and they can be just as interesting as the pooled jackpots, depending on the way you look at them. While pooled jackpots grow into the many millions because they are linked to tens of operators and with that tens of NetEnt Casinos, local jackpots are linked to one NetEnt Casino or one operator only.
If linked to an operator, then all online casinos under the wings of that operator will be sharing the same local jackpots. If an operator consists of only one NetEnt Casino, the local jackpot will be linked to one NetEnt Casino only. Complicated if not involved in the iGaming industry, but good to know if you’re interested in winning a jackpot.
Divine Fortune™ is going to be a local jackpot game and, therefore, will be available at one NetEnt Casino or several NetEnt Casinos of one operator. I’ve been informed that Divine Fortune™ will be replacing the local jackpots from the Wonders video slots which will become history as of the 14th of December. The end of an era, but I’m sure the Divine Fortune™ slot will be a suitable and more contemporary replacement for the Wonders video slots.
Remember that there will be a gap of a month from the moment the Wonders video slot will disappear from the screen and the moment Divine Fortune™ is going to be launched which is planned for the 24th of January 2017.

Looking at the above preview video slot available on NetEnt’s YouTube channel, I have no doubts that the Divine Fortune™ slot is going to bring some new jackpot magic to the NetEnt Casinos. However, the three local jackpots aren’t all that the Divine Fortune™ slot is going to bring to you as there will be enough action on the reels as well.
There will be a falling Wild feature which I haven’t seen in any video slot before which makes the Divine Fortune™ slot another showcase of what NetEnt is capable of. This Falling Wild is combined with the Re-spin feature which I’ve seen in many of the creations before. As you can see in the preview video, this Falling Wild can transform into a Wild Reel with an incredible Pegasus animation appearing over the entire reel.
Three or more Scatters appearing on the reels will activate the Free Spins feature, always welcome in a video slot. At least 5 Free Spins will become available and even though it doesn’t seem much, you must be aware of the fact that all Wild symbols will expand during the Free Spins feature resulting in magical wins. Here again, NetEnt surprises me with its incredible slot features as these Expanding Wilds will become Falling Wilds during two more Re-spins.
Collect three or more golden coins to enter the Jackpot Bonus Game which will deliver extra excitement and in the best case the Divine Fortune™ Mega Jackpot. Adrenaline levels will increase the moment you enter the Jackpot Bonus Game which might result in you winning one of the three local jackpots.
From the 24th of January 2017, NetEnt will bring you back in time to the ancient Greece where a world of mythical creatures will be waiting for you.
