Secrets of Ancient Egypt to be discovered in the upcoming Mercy of the Gods™ slot
It’s not the first time you’ll visit the land of Egypt through one of the NetEnt slots. NetEnt’s first Egyptian-themed slot game Egyptian Heroes™ (EOL) left the NetEnt stage a while ago and so did Secrets of Horus™ (EOL), but the past years the Pyramid™ slot and Coins of Egypt™ slot were launched to make up for that already. And soon, you’ll be give another chance to enjoy the ancient Egypt, this time through the jackpot video slot Mercy of the Gods™ which will become available at the NetEnt Casinos on the 4th of July 2019!
Upcoming NetEnt slots 2019!
It was last year that NetEnt promised to increase the number of new NetEnt slots launched. We’re used to 1 or 2 new games a month, but fans have been promised an amazing minimum of 2 new games a month. The start was a bit lame with no new video slots launched in January 2019, but it seems NetEnt is catching up. If the Swedish software developer is going to manage the aim of 30-35 new games in 2019, that’s a good question, but so far we enjoy all the great new NetEnt slots launched while looking forward to the upcoming games.
Newly launched in 2019 are the Golden Grimoire™ video slot in February, bringing more magic to the reels than ever before! Only one new NetEnt slots was launched as it was in March that the second new NetEnt slot of 2019 was introduced. It was the first branded slot game this year, bringing Scudamore’s Super Stakes™ to the NetEnt Casinos.
Temple of Nudges™ was the second new NetEnt slots launched in March while April brought the Wild Worlds™ slot and the Dead or Alive™ slot to the reels, the sequel to the popular Dead or Alive™ slot which was launched 10 years ago!
Launched on 16th May, the Arcane: Reel Chaos™ video slot is the 6th new NetEnt slot of 2019 but many more games are about to arrive including the Narcos™ video slot that will be launched coming Thursday, 23rd of May. This second branded slot will bring you straight to Colombia where world’s infamous drug lords ruled the country during the 70s and 80s.
June is going to bring another two new NetEnt slots including Spinsane™ and Cash-O-Matic™ of which a preview can be found on this site already. And that’s what we had so far, but new NetEnt games keep coming and the first game of July has been announced as well, bringing another Egyptian-themed video slots to the reels.
We might have lost the Egyptian Heroes™ video slot thanks to the introduction of HTML5 which leads to the disappearance of Flash, but I do see some of the game’s soul in the design of the upcoming Mercy of the Gods™ slot. That’s a good thing, because Ancient Egypt is offering a rich history that can’t be lost and forgotten! I can totally imagine NetEnt didn’t want to say goodbye to the outdated Egyptian slot, hence some of its DNA will be brought back to the reels in the Mercy of the Gods™ slot when launched on the 4th of July.
It’s because of this game launch that we can expect the Egypt Gods back at the NetEnt Casinos. They deserve a warm welcome and I’ll tell you why! Different from the Egyptian Heroes™ slot, the Pyramid™ slot, and the Coins of Egypt™ slot, the Mercy of the Gods™ slot is going to be enriched with an amazing three NetEnt Jackpots! Don’t we all love Jackpots? We do, but we also long for a good gameplay and if this is going to happen depends on the video slot features available, so what is the above preview video telling us about that?
Mercy of the Gods™ features
Again, you’ll travel to Egypt where an adventurous archaeologist has just discovered an ancient pyramid. She’s in deep need of some help to figure out the mysteries of ancient Egypt and explore the pyramid and its hidden treasures!
When discovering ancient Egypt, there’s no way you can go around Isis, the Goddess of life and prosperity. If you develop a game involving Egyptian gods, Isis must be found on the reels, and so she will be!
The same goes for the Eye of Ra, one of the most famous symbols, also known as the Udjat! Three of them opens the way to Free Spins at the top of the pyramid where you’ll be awarded 5 Free Spins. It’s during these Free Spins the Gift of Life Re-spins will be activated when two Wild symbols land on top of each other. The Wild will expand and cover the entire reel.
The biggest gift given by the Mercy of the Gods™ slot is three Bonus symbols which will lead you to the realm of Anubis. It’s in this secret place that the most precious treasures are hidden, the Gift of Wealth Jackpot.
One thing is for sure, there will be three jackpots, but I can’t figure out yet if these jackpots will be progressive or not! It’s always good to keep a few surprises for when the game comes out on the 4th of July! Stay tuned!
