Over the years, we saw NetEnt jackpot games coming and going, but jackpot games like Arabian Nights™, Mega Fortune™ (2009), Hall of Gods™ (2010), Mega Fortune Dreams™ (2014). Cosmic Fortune™ (2014), Divine Fortune™ (2017), Super Lucky Frog (2011), as well as the classic jackpot games Jackpot 6000 (2011) and Mega Joker™ (2011), seem to be there to stay. In 2019, two new jackpot games were added to this long list of jackpot games, the year NetEnt introduced the Mercy of the Gods™ slot and Grand Spinn (Superpot)™.
The launch of the Mercy of the Gods™ slot came at a time that all NetEnt Jackpots noticed the growing competition of other suppliers, ready to bring in another great NetEnt game, offering players a brand-new game and progressive jackpot. During the development, NetEnt used the DNA of one of the video slots that lost the HTML5 battle over the years, the Egyptian Heroes™ slot. The soul of this game returned to the reel in the Mercy of the Gods™ slot, but this revival comes with lots of improvements including sensational animations and three new NetEnt Jackpots!As soon as you open the Mercy of the Gods™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos, you enter ancient Egypt where you’ll bump into the archaeologist who has just discovered an ancient pyramid. Together, you’re about to figure out the mysteries of the pyramid and with that the history of ancient Egypt. While exploring the pyramid, you might trip over some hidden treasures so get ready for some riches in the form of gold, coins, and jackpots!
Designed to become NetEnt’s next jackpot success story, you can expect rich graphics and exciting animations which will keep you captivated during your search for wealth! And as no other, NetEnt knows that even if you offer a player the biggest chance to become wealthy, without an attractive gameplay, a game will never get the popularity NetEnt is looking for. That’s why the Swedish software developer added some intense video slot features including a Wild, Gift of Life Re-spins, Gift of Double Wilds (Extending Wild), Free Spins, and the Gift of Wealth Jackpot (jackpot bonus game)!
Do you have the necessary number of symbols, and enough courage, to enter the realm of Anubis, you’ll only have one mission, to get either one, two or all three reels filled with coins, because it’s only then you win either one of the fixed jackpots or the progressive Mercy of the Gods™ Mega Jackpot. Obviously, the Mega Jackpot will show the amount collected by awarding a small percentage of each player’s bet into this jackpot, but the amount of a fixed jackpot totally depends 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 as soon as a player decides to play with the maximum bet.
Mercy of the Gods™ features
Brings me to the actual betting options and with a minimum bet of 0.20, the Mercy of the Gods™ slot attracts hordes of players as this minimum bet can already lead to winning either one of the fixed 4.00 and 20.00 jackpots, but this bet can also, with some good luck, award the progressive Mega Jackpot.
However, it is generally known that players who play with a higher bet (a medium bet or higher) have a bigger chance to win a Gift of Wealth in the form of a jackpot. Increase your chances and use the six different coin values and the 10 different bet levels to get to a bet convenient for you in between the minimum bet of 0.20 and the maximum bet of 100.00.
Mercy of the Gods™ features
Although this game differs from a standard slot game thanks to the added jackpots, the Wild is doing exactly what it does in any other video slot, namely to support winning combinations by substituting for any other Wild symbol, except Scatters and Bonus symbols.
Besides its joker-type of function in the game, the Wild in the Mercy of the Gods™ slot will be also responsible for the activation of the exciting Gift of Life Re-spins, during the main game and during the Free Spins feature. During the Gift of Life Re-spins, each Wild symbol will move one row down on each spin until all Wild symbols disappear from the reels. As long as new Wild symbols appear during the Re-spins, the Gift of Life Re-spins feature remains activated, just until no new Wilds are seen on the reels.
Gift of Double Wilds involve a Wild symbol landing behind another Wild during the Gift of Life Re-spins feature which results in the Wild expanding, covering the entire reel. After the expansion, the Wild symbols will each go one row down, the same way a single Wild climbs down over the reels to eventually disappear.
Three or more Eye of Ra symbols anywhere on the reels, opens the way to the Free Spins feature. The number of Free Spins awarded depends on the number of Scatters involved and 3, 4 or 5 Scatters activate respectively 5, 8 or 12 Free Spins. It’s during the Free Spins feature that a single Wild awards Gift of Life Re-Spins with the added Gift of Double Wilds. This means, that 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 are left.
A world of wealth is hidden, but three Bonus symbols on the reels in the Mercy of the Gods™ slot will lead you to the realm of Anubis, where the archaeologist’s brave heart will give you a chance to win the Gift of Wealth Jackpot. It’s in this secret place that the most precious treasures are hidden and where life changing events are taking place! At the start of this jackpot bonus game, all collected symbols are randomly placed on the reels with three reels to be filled up. While each new bonus symbol awards a coin value of 10-200 times the bet level, they will also award additional free spins as well. One, two, or three rows with bonus symbols award respectively the Minor Jackpot, the Major Jackpot or the desired Mega Jackpot.
