Divine Lotus slot review
At JohnSlots we’ve been noticing quite a few Asian-style slots over the last few months, along with the emergence of the mystery symbol. With that said, it’s safe to say that Divine Lotus, the new slot from Thunderkick, is very on-trend, since it merges the classic nature of an Asian slot beautifully with more modern features.
This six-reel, 4,096-payline slot isn’t overflowing with features, but it does add a twist to the bonus rounds to create a point of difference. We thoroughly enjoyed playing the slot, and we’ll go through everything in detail to show you why.

Divine Lotus bonus features
As mentioned, Thunderkick’s latest slot isn’t its most feature-heavy… but the uniqueness in the way the features play out is more than enough to keep things interesting. The mystery lotus symbol is very popular in slots right now, and it’s a fun alternative to the classic wild symbols.
We’ll go through each of the features now so you can get an idea of how they function.
The free spins round operates slightly differently to a more traditional slot game, which might award a ladder of spins according to how many scatters you land. In Divine Lotus, however, you need to find a lotus scatter symbol on three or more reels to trigger the round. You’ll then be awarded two spins for triggering the round, along with one spin for every lotus scatter present. For example, six lotus scatters across three reels would generate eight free spins in total.
Once the free spins round has been triggered, you’ll see the screen change slightly to allow for a meter. This is counting how many lotus symbols appear during the round, and once it fills up, you’ll see all lotus symbols replaced with mystery symbols, along with an extra spin added to your count.
The free spins round is extremely volatile so it won’t trigger that often – but when it does, that’s when you’ll have the chance to hit the maximum win of 8,709x your stake.
Instead of wilds in Divine Lotus, it’s the mystery lotus symbol you’ll notice. While the mystery symbol won’t function exactly like a wild to substitute for other symbols, it will instead replace all mystery lotus symbols on the reels into a randomly chosen high-paying symbol. This can end up being extremely lucrative, since you could be awarded a much bigger payout than you were originally heading for.
Divine Lotus jackpot
You won’t find a jackpot in this slot, but with maximum prizes of up to 8,709x your stake, you probably won’t mind. Just look out for that free spins round, since that’s where the big prizes lie!
RTP and volatility
We found Divine Lotus to be extremely high in volatility, particularly when it comes to the free spins round. As we mentioned earlier, though this round doesn’t seem to hit often, when it does you could see some massive prizes coming in.
The return to player of 96.14% is slightly higher than average, making this quite a nice little slot if you’re ready to play for higher wins.
Divine Lotus on mobile
Like most Thunderkick slots (if not all), Divine Lotus works beautifully on mobile, so you’ll be able to enjoy the experience on the go.
