Mercy of the Gods

Mercy of the Gods

Net Entertainment already has quite a few progressive jackpots in their arsenal. Mercy of the Gods is the latest jackpot game to appear in their collection. Arguably one of the smaller-paying progressive casino slots made available by Swedish software provider, Mercy of the Gods is an Ancient Egyptian-themed 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 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 slot. Mercy of the Gods has an RTP rate of 96.64%.

Special features

A wild symbol appears as a pair of lotus leaves in this game. 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 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. 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.

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’ jackpots.

Overview

Mercy of the Gods 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.
