In 2020, the Megaways™ slot series already reached a good level of popularity with 70 titles from different software developers. Each software developer using the Megaways™ slot engine must have a licence from Big Time Gaming to create a version of their own. The Divine Fortune Megaways™ is NetEnt’s second addition to the popular slots series, turning NetEnt’s very own Divine Fortune™ into a dynamic slot game. NetEnt launched the game only weeks after introducing the slots series with Twin Spins Megaways™.
Divine Fortune Megaways™ – a trip to the ancient world and back, but with a Megaways™ twist!
Why a dynamic slot game?
The success of the Megaways™ slots series is to be found in the way the slots engine is built. Megaways™ games bring 6 reels with on each reels 2 to 7 symbols. Matching symbols in any position on three or more adjacent reels from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel, results in a winning combination. The number of Megaways™ is equal to the number of symbols on each of the reels multiplied. The maximum number of Megaways™ is 117649.
The dynamic slots part comes from the variation of symbols on the reels. There can be two symbols on a reel or 7, or anything in between. The lowest number of Megaways™ appear on the counter when all reals have two symbols. The maximum of ways to win become available when all reels show 7 symbols. That’s why all Megaways™ are as dynamic as can be. Unlike their standard versions that have a static number of symbols on the reels during each spin.
The dynamic aspect of the popular slots in combination with the Cascading Reels, which we know as the Avalanche™ feature, is what makes the Megaways™ slots series such a big success. The first of its slots was built in 2016 with over 70 titles available by the NetEnt launched Divine Fortune Megaways™ in 2020.
From Divine Fortune™ to Divine Fortune Megaways™
Released in 2017, NetEnt’s Divine Fortune™ slot became an all-time classic. Besides awarding players with a life-changing bag of money once in a while, it also offers truly enjoyable video slot features. For years already, millions of players enjoy the innovative Falling Wilds Re-Spins and Wild on Wild feature. The Mega Jackpot left the stage in Divine Fortune Megaways™, but in return, NetEnt added Free Spins with 3 Bonus Win symbols while three static jackpots are still available. And of course, an impressive number of 11769 Megaways™!
We also see Medusa and Pegasus back on the reels involved with features like Falling Wilds Re-Spins and the Wild on Wild feature. I was always impressed by Pegasus turning into an Expanding Wild in combination with the euphoric music throughout the game. I was happy to see the return of all of these aspects to Divine Fortune Megaways™.
You don’t have to think about the numbers of betting lines to play with or with which level, the betting options in Divine Fortune Megaways™ are plain and simple. You choose from bets between 0.10 and 100 and that’s it. With these bets, NetEnt targets all type of players, from beginners to experienced players.
Divine Fortune Megaways™ slot features
As mentioned before, it’s the Megaways™ engine that provides a dynamic and fun gameplay! With 2 to 7 symbols on the 6 reels, the maximum ways to win can go up to 117649. The number of Megaways™ is shown at the top of the game.
Falling Wilds Re-Spin
When a Wild symbol appears on the reels, each Wild symbol shifts down one position on the reels. This is when a Falling Wilds Re-Spin starts. 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
It’s one of my most favourite slot features because of its big win potential, as well as its animation! It’s during this slot feature that you see Pegasus’ beauty when it expands completely to cover the entire reels.
The Wild on Wild feature activates when a Wild lands on a position that is already occupied by a Falling Wild symbol. This exciting slot feature is available during the main game and during Free Spins.
As mentioned before, the Wild symbol will expand to cover the entire reel to show you the true colours of Pegasus as one of the most beautiful creatures in ancient Greek mythology. After its expansion, each Wild symbol shifts down one position on the reels. A Falling Wilds Re-Spin is awarded with up to 7 Falling Wilds on one reel.
The Divine Fortune™ slot didn’t know a Free Spins version. Its Megaways™ version does, though, with 4 or more Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels responsible for the activation. This will be the case during the main game, including Falling Wilds Re-Spins. Free Spins offers expanding Wilds and 3 different Bonus Win symbols.
