NetEnt has long offered players the chance to play some of the biggest and best jackpot slots in the world right now, whether sat at a desk or playing on a phone. Indeed, Mega Fortune is probably our favourite progressive jackpot slot out there, and it is ably assisted by the likes of Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune Dreams, although that last one is not available on mobile devices right now. Basically, we thought that the company was pretty much set for jackpot games, and then along came Divine Fortune with its Ancient Greek theme and new way of winning, while also being released online and across mobile casino platforms simultaneously. There are a few twists to proceedings, including some that our readers might not expect, but all will be revealed over the course of the full review below.
What to Expect
We immediately noted that this game does not necessarily look great, especially by NetEnt’s own standards, and the themed twist that they seem to have attempted on the playing card icons has not exactly come off. Then again, Divine Fortune is far from ugly – NetEnt simply does not deal in ugly slots.
There is a lot to talk about on this game but it makes sense to start with the jackpots themselves, and they are key differentiator between this game and the likes of Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune. Both of those games offer players tiers of jackpot prizes that are controlled centrally by NetEnt. Whether you are playing at Casumo or Mr Green, you are contributing to the same pool and everyone stands to win. Here on Divine Fortune, however, the two lower jackpot amounts are fixed and calculated like most slots prizes, as a multiple of your stake. The top one is progressive, but only at the casino you are playing at. It can actually make perfect sense to play at as popular a mobile casino as possible on this game for the biggest wins, and we are pleased to say that the recommendations above translate their quality into popularity just about perfectly.
In terms of winning a jackpot, players are looking to land three or more jackpot bonus symbols first off. Every qualifying symbol will award a coin win and it is then off to the jackpot reels, with one spin for every symbol too. This board consists of just one symbol, with blank spaces filling in elsewhere. Land a row of symbols and you’ll scoop the minor jackpot, with the major jackpot on offer for two full rows. Fill the board, meaning no blank spaces at all and the progressive jackpot is yours.
Jackpots are great and all, but they are rarely the only attraction on the NetEnt reels and here the top prize is supported by a couple of features. For starters, when a wild appears on the board, one respin is awarded as the wild moves down a position and they will continue until the wild disappears off the bottom. If another wild lands directly on top of the one already in play, they will combine and expand to cover the whole reel, keeping the respins going until the whole thing has left the board.
There are free spins too, with three, four or five of Zeus’s thunderbolt symbols leading to five, eight or twelve free games. That is not a massive number, but there is compensation within the round itself as now any wild that lands will automatically expand to cover its whole reel with no need for the bonus feature to help things along – although it still does anyway!
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
If you are after the very biggest prizes in slots gaming, then Divine Fortune is not the game for you. As popular as some leading NetEnt mobile casinos are, they cannot compete with every casino’s players contributing to a pool. However, bigger prizes mean more competition, so in theory you are more likely to win big on Divine Fortune than on any other NetEnt mobile jackpot slot game. The rest of the game is solid, and us perhaps preferring some more souped up graphics is the only slight issue that we have – otherwise, we would definitely suggest that you get playing!
