Intro: Game Theme
Divine Fortune is a NetEnt-powered progressive jackpot video slot themed on Greek mythology. Instead of focusing on the Greek gods, which most slots with a similar theme do, Divine Fortune takes a different approach by highlighting some of the most notable mythological creatures of ancient Greek legends.
The reels are set between two pillars which are shaped like Greek ladies and the setting looks like an entrance to an ancient temple. Character symbols further deepen the theme, but if you aren’t familiar with the mythical stories like The Legend of Perseus or The Legend of Theseus, then you won’t immediately recognise creatures such as the Minotaur or the Medusa. The Minotaur is a grotesque monster with a body of a man and a head of a bull, living in the labyrinth under the palace of Knossos, the home of King Minos of Crete. After devouring numerous young Athenians, the Minotaur was eventually defeated by Theseus. The Medusa met her end by the hero Perseus, who cut off her head and used it as a weapon, as Medusa had the ability to turn to stone any person who gazed upon her face.

How it Works
Released in 2017, Divine Fortune comes with a standard 5×3 video slot grid. The game features 20 paylines which are active and fixed on every spin. Players are free to use the bet level selector to determine the size of their bets (10 bet levels available). They can also adjust the value of the coins, going from 0.01 to 0.50. One click on the Max Bet button will increase all these adjustments to their maximum limits, whereas the Autoplay button will allow spinners to select a set of automatically played spins.
Playing card symbols J, Q, K and A bring lower payouts. You can get 80x the stake at the most for five Aces. Theme-related icons bring significantly higher wins. You can get 200x the stake for 5 Eagles of Zeus, 300x the stake for 5 Minotaurs, 400x the bet for 5 Nemean lions (the lion the Hercules fought) and ultimately 600x the stake for 5 Medusa heads. Three special symbols are featured in the game, as well. The winged divine horse Pegasus is the Wild card; the thunder-bringing hand of Zeus is the Free Spins symbols and a coin with the slot logo is the Bonus symbol. That being said, you won’t be wrong to assume that Divine Fortune is packed with special features.
One of the three special bonus rounds is all about the progressive jackpots. The Jackpot Bonus Game is triggered by three coin Bonus symbols. As the feature is activated, the player will get a cash prize for every Bonus symbol that has landed, and then a matching game begins. The player needs to match one, two or three rows of coins to obtain the Minor (worth 20x the total bet), Major (worth 100x you total stake) or the Mega Progressive Jackpot (seeds at £10,000).
With 3, 4 or 5 Free Spins Scatters, the free spins round is triggered and the player receives 5, 8 or 12 free spins. All Wild icons that appear during free play will become expanding Wilds, showing the Pegasus in all its glory across entire reels.
The Falling Wilds Re-Spins feature is active during base play and during free spins. Each time a Wild appears, it will fall down one position and award a re-spin. The feature continues as long as new Wilds keep landing; Wild upon Wild will create expanding Wilds and once more awaken the Pegasus, increasing chances to win.
Divine Fortune developers have made sure that you have more than enough ways to achieve your own divine fortune playing this terrific slot. There are three jackpots on offer, free spins and plenty of Wild action to expand your winning potential up to mythological proportions. The Pegasus will serve you just as well as it served Perseus in his legendary quests, so don’t be afraid to take a peek inside the temple and spend some time in classical Greece, socialising with the generous mythical creatures of those times.
