Mercy of The Gods Jackpot Slot
NetEnt never seems to quit producing premium online slot games. In this title, they place you at the Mercy of the Gods, as you raid the tombs of Pharaohs gone by, in search of treasures of up to €160,000 (1,600 x total stake).
Theme and Background
Mercy of The Gods has an Egyptian theme. This is evident by the visuals presented on the screen, as well as the eerie Eastern soundtrack played in the background. The reels are set on a beautiful white linen backdrop, with Ancient Egyptian architecture surrounding it. Two watchdogs preside over the reels, with the ability to either favour you or not.
The reel symbols bolster the game theme well. The low-value symbols are mere card deck symbols, but the style and colours used in their design are perfect for the period. The high-value symbols include our female explorer, the symbol of Ra, a miniature Pharaoh, and a symbol with Scarabs and Asps on it.
The Wild symbol will substitute for all standard symbols, save Eye of Horus Scatter, which has a part to play in triggering the main feature in the game, and the gold medallion bonus scatter, which is a key trigger to the jackpot bonus.
Mercy of The Gods is played over 20 fixed paylines, where wins of up to 1,600x per line stake can be won. To win rewards, simply line up 3 or more identical symbol matches over one of the payline patterns.
Kick the spins off by lodging your bet. You can set the bet by adjusting both the coin value and the number of coins you would like to bet. Once the wager is set, hit the spin button to get the reels underway.
If you would like less hassle and want to attend to another task while gambling, configure the Auto Play function for the machine to automatically spin the reels for you a set number of times, at a set wager.
As with most NetEnt slot games, Mercy of the Gods slot contains a strong contingent of bonus material:
Gift of Life Re-Spins and Gift of Double Wilds
Should one or more Wild symbols appear on the screen, it will activate a re-spin of the reels. Each time the reels re-spin, the Wild symbol will drop down the column by one row until it drops off the screen. As long as there are Wilds on the screen, the reels will re-spin.
Should a Wildland behind another one, it will expand to fill the entire reel and will re-activate the re-spin feature.
Should you land three or more scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, you will trigger the free spins. During this feature, any wild landed will expand to cover the entire reel and will activate the Gift of Life Re-Spins.
Gift of Wealth Jackpot
Should you land three or more gold medallion bonus symbols, you will trigger the Gift of Wealth Jackpot. As the game plays, all bonus symbols landed will remain on the reels and payout between 10 and 200 times the bet level each, at the end of the round. Collect rows of medallions to win one of the jackpots displayed above the reels.
Minor Jackpot: Pays 20x bet and is won when filling a full row with bonus symbols.
Major Jackpot: Pays 100x bet and is won when filling 2 full rows with bonus symbols.
Mega Jackpot: This is progressive and is won when filling 3 full rows with bonus symbols.

CasinoWow Game Verdict
Egyptian-themed slots are a dime a dozen, but the best supplier in iGaming makes this one. The added progressive pot is a sure bonus but beware of the high variance of Mercy of The Gods which can seem to offer long runs without action.
