Mercy of the Gods is a medium-to-high variance, five-reel slot by NetEnt that lets mobile players take a shot at no less than three jackpots! The Mercy of the Gods slot is set in Ancient Egypt, and as you explore the freshly-uncovered tomb of a pharaoh for between 20p and £100 per spin, you could reveal three bonus features called Gift of Life Re-Spins, the Gift of Double Wilds, and the Gift of Wealth Jackpot Game.
The progressive jackpot in Mercy of the Gods seeds at £10,000 and the game's RTP stands at 96.64%.
Our Verdict: NetEnt's recreation of the ancient pyramids of Egypt in Mercy of the Gods makes you feel as though you're stood right next to the archaeologist who's just starting to excavate the catacombs.
You may recognise some of the features in the Mercy of the Gods slot game are quite similar to the same software developer's Divine Fortune slot, which can only be a good thing as it means that there are three jackpots to play for, as well as expanding wilds and re-spins.
Design: The Mercy of the Gods slot is set against the backdrop of an Egyptian temple which is guarded by statues of the god, Horus. The Egyptian music and superb visuals make the gameplay wonderfully suspenseful, and if you know anything about the ancient pharaohs and their beliefs, you'll find many of the paytable symbols rather familiar as they include scarab beetles, canopic jars, and the Eye of Horus, as well as a female archaeologist and playing card symbols.
Wild Symbol: The twin military trumpets act as the wild symbols in the Mercy of the Gods slot, and they can help to make wins by replacing all symbols except bonus and scatter symbols.
Bonus Features: The bonus rounds in Mercy of the Gods come in four different forms, including the Gift of Double Wilds, Gift of Life Re-Spins, the Gift of Wealth Jackpot Game, and Free Spins. You can also win up to 1,600 times your bet on any base game spin.
Free Spins Bonus
3, 4 or 5 scatters get you 5, 8 or 12 free games respectively.
Gift of Double Wilds
This feature is only triggered when a wild symbol lands behind another wild symbol. It allows both symbols to expand and fill the entire reel while simultaneously unlocking the Gift of Life Re-Spins Feature.
Gift of Life Re-Spins
Every wild symbol that appears while you're playing the Mercy of the Gods slot game on your mobile device triggers the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature. It allows the wild to drop down a row and also give you a re-spin until the wild symbol disappears from view. Additional wilds have the same effect so you can often benefit from as many as nine re-spins before the feature ends.
Gift of Wealth Jackpot Game
Collect three gold hearts, and you gain entry to the jackpot game. You're required to collect as many hearts as you can to fill one, two or three rows on the grid. Each row gets you one step closer to the Mega Jackpot, with the Minor and Major jackpots being awarded for filling one and two rows respectively.
