Divine Fortune online pokie review
Estimated reading time 4 minutes
The media industry is a big fan of re-making everything as of late – from movies to TV shows, and even musive – and the online casino industry isn’t far behind. While NetEnt haven’t re-done a specific pokie, they have re-done the mythological theme with their 2017 January release Divine Fortune. It is visually appealing, but are the features worth spending our hard earned money on each spin? There’s a progressive jackpot attached – which we rarely see on new releases with, so our guess is yes.
Where to play Divine Fortune online
Divine Fortune Format
Net Entertainment’s Divine Fortune features 5 reels and 20 paylines set inside a temple which mirrors ancient Greek architecture. There’s a sense of magic to the backdrop, with golden light animations floating around on the statues.
NetEnt has put the buttons under the reels as usual, but intricate details have ramped up the value, with a laurel wreath incorporated into the spin button – there’s also a green colour scheme. Here you can adjust the bet level from one through to 10 and the coin value from 0.01 to 0.50. This sees a minimum bet of $0.20, and a maximum bet of $100 per spin available.
Max Bet is also available, but it is important to note it works on the coin size you’re at so if you’re at level 10 and press the Max Bet button, but only have a coin size of 0.02 activated, it will be $4 per spin, not $100.
Divine Fortune symbols
Net Entertainment has used four of the traditional low paying symbols – A, K, Q, and J – and while the symbols have a Greek theme, they aren’t the Greek numerals. You need three of a kind to earn the minimum payout.
The middle paying symbols include the eagle and the lion, while the high paying symbols include the lion and Medusa – a monster in Greek mythology. All symbols also require a minimum of three of a kind to see a payout.
There’s three other important symbols you should keep an eye out for.
The Wild symbol, which is the unicorn – we were surprised to find out unicorns were mentioned by ancient Greeks – substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spins and Bonus symbols, we detail these below. It also features in the Falling Wild Re-Spins bonus and the Wild on Wild feature, which you can find out more under the features section.
The Free spins Symbol is the hand holding a gold lightening bolt and at least three triggers the Free Spins feature.
The Bonus symbol triggers the progressive jackpot bonus round when three or more appear on an active payline.
Divine Fortune features
There’s a number of features available on Divine Fortune which include Wilds, Re-Spins and Free Spins.
First up is the Falling Wild Re-Spins where every time a Wild appears on the reels and all winning symbol combinations are paid, the Wild will move down a position and you will be awarded a Falling Wild Re-Spin – a free re-spin with the Wild dropped to the next row. You can score this in both the base game and the Free Spins feature.
Then there’s the Wild on Wild feature where two Wilds on top of each other will expand to cover the entire reel. Get this with the Falling Wild Re-Spins and you’ll be spinning for quite some time for free.
Next up is the Free Spins feature where three Free Spins symbols will award you with five free spins, four Free Spins symbols will award you with eight free spins, and five Free Spins symbols will award you with 12 free spins. Any Wild which appears, becomes a Wild on Wild and expands to cover the reel – and the Falling Wild Re-Spins feature can be activated here too.
Finally, there’s the progressive bonus game.
Divine Fortune progressive jackpots
The bonus game where you can win the Minor, Major, or Mega progressive jackpots on offer is triggered when you spin at least three Bonus symbols on an active payline.
The online slot’s Bonus game see’s three rows with 5 reels and the aim of the game is to spin as many gold coins as you can. One row of gold coins – in other words five gold coin symbols across each reel – will score you the Minor prize, two rows will score you the Major prize and all three rows will score you the Mega prize.
You are first awarded three free spins to attempt to get this – and every time you land a coin on the reel your spins will be topped up.
Audio and graphics of Divine Fortune
As you would expect with new online slots games, the graphics are of high quality on Divine Fortune – it’s an upgraded graphic appearance of many mythological pokies available. There’s not too much going on either which may suit many Internet connections – the animations are minimal, apart from on wins.
The soundtrack is quite cinematic as the audio sounds like we are inside a Greek Parthenon and while there aren’t any details, we can’t help thinking 3D sound has been incorporated, an innotative feature NetEnt announced last year.
Our thoughts on Divine Fortune
GUIDE: More online slots reviews
This title is absolutely incredible when it comes to the features. From scoring multiple free Re-Spins due to the Falling Wild Re-Spin feature colliding with the Wild on Wild feature, and winning the minor jackpot during the bonus game – we won a lot on this Greek mythological title by NetEnt.
We highly recommend playing Divine Fortune and to crank up your speakers for a truly suspenseful real money experience.
