Egyptian-themed video slots always leave a lasting impression in the minds of players. This could be attributed to their silky-smooth graphics, fun gameplay and of course mouthwatering rewards. In Mercy of the Gods, you can receive the blessings of ancient Egyptian gods in the Gift of Lift, Gift of Wealth Jackpot and Gift of Wild features. Read this review to know how you can be blessed by the gods of Egypt.

Mercy of the Gods Gameplay

Mercy of the Gods is a video slot game creation of NetEnt with 20 active paylines played out on a 5x3 reel set. With 20p per spin, you can start a game either on your desktop PC or even on your mobile device. While low-rollers would love placing bets as low as 20p, you can also place bets as high as £100 per spin if you want to. In the backdrop, you have the scene of a majestic pyramid. 

The 5x3 reel set has the Egyptian dog god named Anubis on both sides of the reel set. You will find both low and high-ranking icons on the reels. For the low-ranking symbols, you have the card icons of J, K, Q and A. The high-ranking symbols are theme-specific and include; falcons of the Egyptian god named Horus, Scarab beetles and Tutankhamen. 

There is also a female adventurer which incidentally is the highest-ranking symbol. With this symbol, you can earn a 2x, 5.5x or 80x stake multiplier when you land 3, 4 or 5 of this symbol on an active payline.

The Gift of Life Respins 

The Wild symbol in Mercy of the Gods shows up on the entire reel set and it can substitute every symbol except for the game's Scatter as well as bonus icons. A Gift of Life Respins bonus feature is triggered when at least one Wild symbol shows up on the reel. 

During the respins, the Wild symbol will drop down from one row to the other. This will continue as long as the respins is in progress and until the Wild drops completely out of sight. Additional respins can be achieved with the presence of extra Wilds on the reel set.

Mercy of the Gods Free Spins Bonus Feature 

The Scatter icon is represented by the Eye of Horus. If you land 3 Eye of Horus symbols on any position on the reel set, you will activate the free spins bonus feature. By having 3, 4 or even 5 Scatters landed on the reels at the same time, you will earn five, eight or even twelve free spins in return. 

In Mercy of the Gods when Wilds appear on the reels during the free spins, they can expand on the reels and make one reel Wild. This will then activate the game's Gift of Life Respins bonus feature.

To Sum Up

Mercy of the Gods also comes with other bonus features such as the Gift of Double Wilds and Gift of Wealth Jackpot. With the latter, you can earn a multiplier of as much as 200x your staked amount. This game is a great addition to the Egyptian genre and one that will excite all Egyptian-themed video slot enthusiasts.
