NetEnt has once again impressed us with their slot release. The company’s Mercy of the Gods slot offers a true visual and audio spectacle set in some remote ancient Egyptian land with loads of bonus features and bonus symbols to take advantage of. The game features 5 reels and 20 paylines offering bets from only 0.20 credits up to 100 credits per spin. This is a great range suitable for both high-rollers and players who prefer to stick with smaller stakes.
Apart from being rewarding and generous, the game is also beautifully tailored. As previously mentioned, the Mercy of the Gods slot has a popular ancient Egyptian theme. With the very first spin on the game, players enter an ancient Egyptian pyramid which naturally features all sorts of theme-related symbols such as Tutankhamen, Horus falcons, scarab beetles, the main character depicted as the female explorer as well as neatly rendered standard playing symbols.
The reels of the game are framed with Anubis statues which perfectly match the game’s mysterious theme. As players take this tour through the pyramid, they also get to enjoy iconic, soothing sound effects which play in the background. As the majority of today’s modern video slots, the Mercy of the Gods slot features wild symbols which in this case can land on any reel. Naturally, once landed on the reels they substitute standard-paying symbols.
Apart from rewarding wilds, the game features scatter symbols which trigger one of the game’s bonus modes. During their gaming sessions, players are advised to keep an eye on the game’s female explorer symbols as these are the most generously-paying symbols which can yield winnings worth all the way up to 80x players’ stake.
As expected from a NetEnt-powered slot game, Mercy of the Gods features not one, but several impressive bonus modes for more generous winnings. First of all, there is the game’s Gift of Life Re-spins bonus feature which triggers as soon as one or more wild symbols hit the reels. Once the bonus is triggered, every triggering wild moves down by one row on every re-spin and their movement continues until all wilds disappear from the gaming grid.
Naturally, landing extra wilds brings extra re-spins. Then, Mercy of the Gods features another rewarding bonus named the Gift of Double Wilds mode. The bonus is triggered by landing at least one wild symbols behind another wild symbols during the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature. Once this happens, triggering wilds expand giving one entirely wild reel.
The Mercy of the Gods slot features a Free Spins mode, players trigger as soon as they land three or more of the scattered Eye of Horus symbols in any position on the gaming grid. Here, players can scoop 5, 8 and 12 free spins as well as more generous winnings as all wild symbols which land during this mode expand giving wild reels before they activate the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature.
Lastly, there is also the game’s Gift of Wealth Jackpot mode which players enter as soon as they collect at least three bonus symbols either in the Gift of Life Re-Spins mode or during the base game. Here, the key is to land bonus symbols which feature awesome cash prizes with them worth up to 200x players’ stake. The most players can win here are prizes worth 1,600x their stake on every free spins, re-spin and base game spin.
Players who prefer visually impressive games packed with even more impressive winnings will definitely enjoy their Mercy of the Gods gaming sessions. The game is truly adventurous while its impressive payouts and rewarding bonuses make it even more fun and rewarding.
