Divine Fortune Megaways™. NetEnt: RTP 96.06%

This week we're continuing the celebration of 2021's award-winning games. This time it's another number from NetEnt: Divine Fortune Megaways™, which has just won Product Launch of the Year 2021 at the Global Gaming Awards.

Originally released in 2017 as a progressive jackpot slot, the version of Divine Fortune we're talking about today is the 2021 Megaways edition, which swaps out the progressive element, replacing it with 117,649 ways to win.

Aside from the reel mechanic change-up, the theme and features stay faithful to the original and offer thrilling action with wilds, falling wilds re-spins feature (land a wild symbol, and you'll get re-spins that only end once the wild leaves the reels, it drops one position with each re-spins), wild reels, and free spins with multiplier payouts, special symbols, and extra wild reels!
