NetEnt releases one or two slots a month. In July, we can look forward to getting another new game, this time a new jackpot slot.
Mercy of the Gods
That’s the title of the new jackpot game, to be released on the 4th of July. The game comes with an Egyptian theme, which is a bit of a pity, to be honest. There’s just nothing original about the theme, even though from what we’ve seen already, the slot looks good enough.
And we do get a female adventurer on the reels instead of another Indiana Jones lookalike. Still, could we get something original for a change?
Speaking of original, the mechanics are nothing new either. You get 5 free spins when you get three scatters on the reels. And wilds can expand and will give you free re-spins as the drop off the reels on every re-spin.
Also, when you’re in the jackpot game, which you need at least three coins to trigger, you will have to keep collecting more coins and fill each row to determine which jackpot you might get: Minor, Major or Mega.
Only the Mega Jackpot is a local progressive jackpot that is likely to climb into the high 5 or low 6 figures before it’s won.
If that sounds a lot like Divine Fortune, you are certainly right.
Is it worth checking out?
But even though the slot lacks originality in gameplay and theme, should that keep you from playing? We don’t think so. It’s a jackpot game and Divine Fortune proved a surprise success with players. The wins aren’t difficult to come by and Mercy of the Gods has an excellent RTP of 96.64%, which is unusually high for a jackpot slot.
It looks good. It will likely be engaging to play. And wins of 160,000 coins even without the jackpots are possible. Once the game is out, we’ll be reviewing it thoroughly for you and make a final recommendation. But honestly, any game with decent mechanics, good looks, a great RTP and the potential of a 6-figure jackpot almost automatically recommends itself.
