When NetEnt released the original Divine Fortune, it was quite the success! It remains one of the more popular slots available. Players keep returning to those Ancient Greece-themed reels game after game. With Divine Fortune Megaways™, NetEnt has married Big Time Gaming’s Megaways™ engine with the same great styling and theme. Although missing the alluring progressive jackpots from the original title, this game still packs a punch, with some excellent features for you to take advantage of and bonus wins to be had in the free spins section.

The game is built on the standard Megaways™ 6-reel design, with a maximum of 7 rows per reel. Of course, since the size of the symbols changes with each spin, this game will keep you on your toes. If you manage to land 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels, that means a staggering 117,649 ways to win!
With NetEnt’s reputation for high quality design and finish, Divine Fortune Megaways™ certainly upholds the tradition. Centre stage you’ll find the 6 reels with gold edging. The card deck symbols are done in red lettering with a similar gold trim. The rest of the symbols are done in a semi-realistic style and depict mythical creatures traditionally associated with Ancient Greece.
At the top right of the screen, you’ll also find a Megaways™ counter showing you the currently active number of winning combinations. This is where you’ll be looking at, hoping for that magical 117,649. Flanking either side of the reels one can find two marble statues seemingly holding up a Corinthian-styled column each.
In terms of sound, one can expect the usual high standards for a game from NetEnt. The music creates a tense and exciting ambiance. Music and sound effect sequences blend perfectly between each other. The sound effects themselves ratchet up the tension and anticipation when reels are spinning or when you land several successive wilds.
The importance of the different symbols if very easy to grasp. The lower tier symbols are from the A to 10. Then you have the bird-like Griffin, the half-bull Minotaur, the lion-headed Manticore and snake-haired Medusa the Gorgon.
Divine Fortune Megaways™ allows for a wide range of bets too! You can bet as little as $/€/£0.10 or as much as $/€/£100, a range suitable for most styles of player.
Unfortunately, the progressive jackpots which made the original Divine Fortune so popular are not present in this Megaways™ version. Fear not though! There are still plenty of great features for you to enjoy and look out for. Check them out in more detail:
While playing, you might land a Wild Symbol. This symbol is represented by a white horse-like Pegasus, in keeping with the rest of the theme. Once this symbol appears, you automatically receive a respin. The symbol will then move the next row down on the reel. The game will keep respinning until the Wild Symbol falls off the last position on the row. Similar features exist on other Megaways™ slot in our list, such as Rick and Morty Megaways™ and Monopoly Megaways™.
If you manage to land a Wild Symbol in place of a falling Wild, the Wild on Wild feature is activated. Like similar Cascading Reels mechanics, the symbol will then expand to occupy the whole reel, essentially giving you up to 7 respins! This feature is really one to look out for. It can make a single spin feel like it has elevated you to the realm of the Greek gods.
Speaking of gods, while playing, you’ll notice another symbol finding its way onto the reels: Zeus’ fist holding a lightning bolt. This is the scatter symbol for this game, and the right amount of them can net you a good number of Free Spins.
While this feature is activated you’ll also get an additional benefit! Any Wild Symbol you land will automatically act like a Wild on Wild, expanding to cover the whole reel.
While no progressive jackpots are to be found here, during the Free Spins section of the game you can still win big with local jackpots! Keep an eye out for the three styles of coin symbols on your reels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The game calls these Bonus Win Symbols.
You’ll want to collect 5 of these symbols to win the respective Jackpot.
This game’s RTP sits at 96.09%, which is quite good considering the jackpots available. In terms of volatility, we’re looking at a medium-to-high ranking for this game. You can expect wins with around 2 out of every 5 spins. The Max Win possible is 38,000X the original bet, you could say that that does indeed sound divine.
Divine Fortune is of course compatible with all your devices. Be it an Android phone or tablet, an iPhone or iPad, or of course your desktop or laptop. It’s safe to say you won’t have to worry about compatability, NetEnt’s talented team has thought of it.
Playing Divine Fortune Megaways™ is a simple affair. In fact, it took us way more time to look up the proper names of all the mythical creatures found in the game, than it did to understand the controls.
Going from left to right, the 3-bar menu will lead you to game settings such as whether to have bets in cash or coins. Next is the information section, including the paytable and a run down of all the features followed by the bet amount selector. The come the basic game controls, the autoplay button, the spin button and the quick spin button. Finally at the right you have your win and balance amounts and a volume selector.
Finding its roots in the ever-popular Divine Fortune, this newer release with the Megaways™ mechanic is sure to excite fans of the series. With excellent sounds and visuals, and exciting, frequent features, Divine Fortune Megaways™ is as captivating as its mythology.
