A Review on Mercy of the Gods Slot Game

Mercy of the Gods Slot MachineThe Mercy of the Gods is a slot game from the famous NetEnt developer. The slot game looks much more similar to their other slot, Divine Fortune, especially if you compare the bonus features. Mercy of the Gods theme is inspired by ancient Egypt and here is my personal experience with this progressive jackpot slot game.

Mercy of the Gods Features

After registering for an account with one of my favourite online casinos, I was able to deposit $50 since I wanted to test how it would all turn out. Using my smartphone, I logged in and headed straight to the game and here is how it went down:

Mercy of the Gods is super loaded with 5 reels, 3 rows and as many as 20 ways through which I could win.  There are also re-spins that consists of nudging wilds as well as free spins that come with expanding wilds. My overall goal was to strike the progressive jackpot which I was not very lucky with, but nonetheless, I was able to make some little profit in the base game. I also enjoyed the graphics of the game and I had no problem loading it on my mobile phone.

For the RTP, Mercy of the Gods has a 96.64% but I was a little cautious with the volatility that is very rampant with this slot game. 

What symbols are in Mercy of the Gods?

On this slot game, NetEnt uses symbols inspired by ancient Egypt. For example, the Female explorer in the game is the one that gave me the highest payout. For me to win, I needed to achieve between 3 and 5 matching symbols on a payline:

Female Adventurer - Pays 80xs stake for 5 on a payline

Horus Falcon - Pays 60xs stake for 5 on a payline

Scarab & Cobras - Pays 45xs stake for 5 on a payline

Tutankhamun - Pays 35xs stake for 5 on a payline

Card Suit symbols - Low-value symbols, these pay for between 3.5x and 2x for 5 on a payline

Bonuses to expect with Mercy of the Gods

NetEnt has done a good job with the bonuses and I got to enjoy a few. For example, each time I managed to land on at least 1 wild symbol on these reels, I was offered the Gift of Life Re-spins feature.

Enjoying Free spins in Mercy of the Gods

To trigger the free spins offer on Mercy of the Gods slot, I had to land on not less than 3 Eye of Horus scatters. This was supposed to happen simultaneously on the reels. I was lucky enough to land on 3, 4 and 5 scatters which enabled me to enjoy 5, 8 and 12 free spins, respectively. Additionally, the wilds landing enlarged into a stacked wild reel which was another option for activating the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature.

Is Any Jackpot Available?

Yes, Mercy of Gods offers a jackpot but it was not an easy one for me. I was required to collect not less than 3 Bonus Symbols in either the base game or within the Re-spins feature. This was the only way I could trigger the “Gift of Wealth” Jackpot feature.

However, it could be your lucky day and if you manage to fill at least 2 rows, you stand a chance to walk away with the Major Jackpot of 100xs the stake. If you manage to fill all the provided 3 rows, you will smile all the way to the bank with Mercy of the Gods progressive Mega Jackpot. Apart from the main jackpot, a player has a chance of walking away with the max win of 1,600xs stake. Assuming you play with the highest possible bet that is allowed on Mercy of the Gods, then taking home $160,000 is very possible.

My Final thoughts

Although NetEnt uses almost similar features in Mercy of the Gods to those of Divine Fortune, there is a very big difference between these two slots and especially the mathematical aspect of the games. They also know it’s not easy to win the progressive jackpot that is why they offer other options through which a player can make money. I personally made a few profits with this slot and I would recommend it to other players.
