How to Play

Net Entertainment already has quite a few progressive jackpots in their arsenal. Mercy of the Gods slot is the latest jackpot game to appear in their collection. Arguably one of the smaller-paying progressive UK online slot made available by Swedish software provider, Mercy of the Gods is an Ancient Egyptian-themed UK slot and one which can dish out prizes which are worth tens of thousands of pounds.

The gaming structure of this NetEnt slot will be familiar to anybody who has played UK slots before. Expect 5 reels and 20 lines of action, with stakes ranging from 20p up to £100 a spin. Paylines are fixed in this game. A non-progressive jackpot can be worth up to 1,600x a stake in this release, which contains three progressive prizes, one of which could be won via the Gift of Wealth bonus round in the UK slot. Mercy of the Gods slot has an RTP rate of 96.64%.

Special Features

A wild symbol appears as a pair of lotus leaves in Mercy of the Gods slot. These symbols appear golden in colour and can substitute for all basic icons to contribute to landing a win. They cannot replace scatter and wild symbols, though.

If a wild symbol should appear on the Mercy of the Gods slot reels, a re-spin bonus, known as the Gift of Life, begins. In this round, the wild symbol will drop down one spot on the reels with each re-spin. This will continue to occur until no new wilds pop up. However, landing further wilds will keep the fun going. Landing two wilds on the spot will seem the expand to cover entire reels. 

Scatter icons appear as the Eye of Horus in Mercy of the Gods slot. Three, four of five of these appearing on the reels will trigger 5, 8 or 12 free spins, respectively. During the feature, any wilds which pop up can expand to cover an entire reel. This will naturally trigger the Gift of Life bonus again. Free spins cannot be retriggered.

Free Spins & Bonus Features

The final scatter appears as a golden heart. The symbol will dish out 3 free spins when three or more appear. Players must use those spins to collect bonus icons, in the hope of winning instant cash prizes.

The more symbols they land, the more valuable those prizes will become. They can rise to 200x a total bet in all. However, if players manage to completely fill one, two or three rows with bonus symbols, they will walk away with the Minor, Major or Mega progressive prizes in this game.  This is the only way to win Mercy of the Gods slot jackpots.

Fun Facts!

There is plenty of Ancient Egyptian imagery and symbolism featured in Mercy of the Gods slot game, with the Eye of Horus a prominent symbol. But what is the Eye of Horus, and what does it represent?

The Eye of Horus is still today used for protection in Egypt. It is one of the most popular amulets that you can buy on Egyptian street markets.

In ancient Egypt, the Eye of Horus was said to protect your health and could make you a very wealthy person. Almost everyone wore an amulet with the Eye Of Horus.

But, what is the history of the Eye of Horus? It is said that the Horus lost his eye to the god Seth. Nasty Seth threw it into a well of water. Later on, Horus had his sight restored by the Hathor - another popular Egyptian god.

The Eye of Horus was also used during burial rituals. Almost all ancient Egyptians were buried with the Eye of Horus. It wasn't just the reigning Pharaoh who had the right to be buried with the Eye of Horus.

Next time you are in the US, look out for the Eye of Horus. It is thought it is one of the symbols of the Freemasons and can be found in various locations in Washington D.C.


Mercy of the Gods slot may not be the most imaginative of slots in terms of theme, but the features are decent, and the prizes make it well worth a look. The fact that the progressive jackpots are petite compared to the likes of Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune won’t bother players as the wagers are cheap. You are, therefore, getting excellent value for money with this game.
