Symbols and Bonus Features

The reels of Mercy of the Gods are set against the entrance of an ancient Egyptian temple. As you spin its reels, you will come across ancient Egyptian and high-value card symbols. You can win a top fixed jackpot of 1600x, which you may feel to be on the low side. However, you can win far more than the fixed payouts if you unlock the following special features.

Wild Symbol – The wild symbol appears all over the reels during the base game and during the free spins. It can substitute for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols.

Gift of Life Re-spins – During this feature, the wild symbols move a row down on every spin till they vanish from the reels. If you land another wild symbol during the Gift of Life Re-spins, the feature gets re-activated.

Gift of Double Wilds – If you land a wild symbol behind another wild symbol during the Gift of Re-spins feature, it expands all over the reel and the Gift of Re-spins feature gets re-activated.

Free Spins – If you land at least three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game or during the Gift of Life Re-spins feature, you will receive the free spins. The number of free spins you will receive depends on the number of scatter symbols that activated this feature.

You will get five, eight, and twelve free spins for combinations of three, four, and five scatter symbols respectively.

When the free spins are being played, the wild symbols you land will expand all over the reels and activate the Gift of Life Re-spins.

Gift of Wealth Jackpot – If you land at least three bonus symbols during the main game, the Gift of Wealth Jackpot feature gets activated. The bonus symbols will be collected and placed randomly on the reels.

If you collect one row of bonus symbols, you will win the minor progressive jackpot. If you collect two rows of bonus symbols, you will win the major progressive jackpot. And if you collect three rows of bonus symbols, you will win the mega progressive jackpot.


Mercy of the Gods is one of the most popular slots in the NetEnt library. However, it is volatile slot. This means that you will win fewer but bigger prizes instead of many smaller prizes. We recommend playing it only if you have a large bankroll.
