It’s a special day today with the first of two new NetEnt jackpot video slots becoming available today! We’re only 20 days away from the 2nd jackpot slot, Grand Spinn Superpot™, to be launched, but today it’s all about the Mercy of the Gods™ video slot. This new jackpot game is bringing three jackpots of which two are fixed and one is progressive. While you’re on the hunt for the jackpot, you get to experience all the best of ancient Egypt.
Get to the realm of Anubis for a chance to win big!
An adventurous archaeologist has discovered an ancient pyramid and seeks to solve its mysteries and find its treasures and you’re invited to join her in NetEnt’s latest release, the Mercy of the Gods™ video slot. As soon as you enter the mysterious world of Ancient Egypt, you’ll be surrounded by all its treasures! The three biggest treasures, however, can be found on top of the game in the form of the Minor, Major, and Mega Jackpot.
Beautifully designed, you can see some of the DNA from the Egyptian Heroes™ video slot back in the Mercy of the Gods™ video slot. Egyptian Heroes™ isn’t available any more thanks to the rise of HTML5 which is leading to older Flash to disappear, but at least a part of its design is now available again on the reels. This while NetEnt’s newest jackpot slot is enriched with the gameplay from the Divine Fortune™ video slot, another jackpot game from the same supplier. That’s why, again, you can enjoy Wild substitutions, Falling Wilds Re-Spins, a Wild on Wild feature, Free Spins and a Jackpot Bonus game.
Give these video slot features another description and you have two different games. It was only today that I realized the games have a lot in common, but it’s not a bad thing! I always liked the way Divine Fortune™ was designed, although this time we don’t see the Greek Pegasus expanding over the reels, but the Egyptian ankh. This ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol was most commonly used in writing and in art to represent the word for “life”, most probably the reason why NetEnt is speaking of the Gift of Life Re-Spins, activated when two Wild symbols land on each other, equalling the Wild on Wild feature in the Divine of Fortune™ slot.
Three new NetEnt Jackpots
Until launch day, I couldn’t figure out if the Mega Jackpot was going to be local or pooled, but it’s today that I figured it out. With the jackpots being different from one another at the many NetEnt Casinos, it’s obvious that we’re talking about a local jackpot here. The same as it’s the case with the Divine Fortune™ slot, but that took me until to figure out as well. Now the truth is out, and we know that we don’t have to expect a million euro jackpot.
That’s okay, it doesn’t change the fact that you have a chance to win either one of the three jackpots while enjoying an exciting gameplay. I’m sure you’ll still feel the excitement as soon as three or more coins are collected during a spin or during the Re-spins feature. It will be then that you’ll enter the realm of Anubis with a chance to win big! If the jackpot gods are upon us, you might manage to fill up 1,2 or 3 reels with golden coins.
The more bonus symbols collected before entering the realm of Anubis, the more exciting you should be as your luck depends on these golden coins. Of course, you’ll need some more spins to push your luck, but with the extra spins awarded, reels will fill up with more golden coins and a chance to fill up at least one reel completely with golden coins.
While the Mega Jackpot is progressive and will keep climbing up as long as no player hits the jackpot, the other two smaller NetEnt Jackpots will be fixed. The height of these two jackpots totally depend on the bet you’ll play with. The Minor Jackpot will start from 4.00 and can go up to 2,000.00 when playing with the maximum bet while the Major Jackpot starts at 20.00 if the minimum bet is selected and can grow up to an amazing 10,000 if you decide to play with the maximum bet.
Mercy of the Gods™ video slot features
Besides the above jackpot bonus game, you will have a lot more to enjoy on the reels in the Mercy of the Gods™ video slot and its mobile version Mercy of the Gods Touch®. There’s the Wild, for example, which has an important role to play during both the main game and the Free Spins feature. It is able to appear as a single Wild and as an Expanding Wild and in both cases it will, obviously, substituting for all other symbols, except Scatters and Bonus symbols.
When a Wild appears, Gift of Life Re-spins will be activated and the Wild symbol will move one row down with each spin until it disappears from the reels. New Wilds can appear and if a Wild appears behind a Wild, the entire reel will become Wild.
Three of the Eye of Ra symbols opens the way to the Free Spins feature at the top of the pyramid where you’ll be awarded 5 Free Spins. It’s during these Free Spins that Isis, the Goddess of life and prosperity, awards Gift of Life Re-Spins with the added Gift of Double Wilds. During Free Spins, even a single Wild will expand, covering the entire reel with Wilds, and then starts to move down, one row at a time, until all Wilds have disappeared from the reels. The Re-spin feature will then come an end until a new Wild appears on the reels again or until no Free Spins left.
So far I’ve seen the Mercy of the Gods™ video slot at Mr Green Casino, Maria Casino, Casinoland, and LeoVegas, but I’m sure the game will become available at the majority of the NetEnt Casinos.
