Step into the mystical world of ancient Egypt with this slot, which is set right at the entrance of a great pyramid. Two statues of Anubis guard the doorway that leads to the reel set.
The low value end of the paytable includes the A, K, Q and J royal symbols, rendered in an ancient script. In the mid-range value, we can see images of Horus, the falcon-headed god, scarab beetles and the pharaoh Tutankhamen. The most valuable symbol is the explorer and landing 5 of this character symbol in a winning combination will reward with 80 times the stake.
The Wild symbol can appear on any of the 5 reels and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter and Bonus. If more than one Wild appears on the same spin, the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature is activated.
Gift of Life Re-Spins
When two or more Wilds appear on the same spin, the re-spins feature is activated. During each re-spin, all Wild symbols move one row down and re-spins will continue until all the Wilds have disappeared off the final row. Landing additional Wilds will trigger further re-spins.
If an additional Wild appears above another Wild, these will expand to form a fully Wild reel in what is called the Gift of Double Wilds feature.
This feature is activated when 3 or more Eye of Horus Scatter symbols appear on the same spin. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will award 5, 8 or 12 spins respectively. Wilds appearing during free spins will expand to a fully Wild reel, which then triggers the Gift of Life Re-Spins.
There are three jackpots to be won in Mercy of the Gods via the Gift of Wealth feature. Collect 3 or more Bonus symbols during the case game or the re-spins feature to trigger 3 further spins, with the Bonus symbols randomly placed on the reels. Further Bonus symbols will reset the number of spins back to three.
The objective is to fill as many rows with bonus symbols as possible. Filling one row will reward with the Minor Jackpot of x20 the stake. Filling two rows awards the Major Jackpot, at 100 times the stake and filling all the rows will award the progressive Mega Jackpot. Bonus symbols also award cash prizes so landing these is always good news.
Mercy of the Gods has an RTP of 96.46%, which falls within the average range, and a medium-high volatility.
NetEnt has made Mercy of the Gods fully mobile compatible so it can be enjoyed on any smartphone or tablet device.
