Players return to Egypt as they aim to reel in the fortunes of the Pharaohs

 

An adventurous archaeologist has discovered an ancient pyramid and seeks to solve its mysteries and find its treasures in NetEnt’s latest release, Mercy of the GodsTM.

The game is a beautifully designed, 5-reel, 3-row, 20 winline video slot offering progressive jackpots with NetEnt’s network of global operators.

In the game, Isis, the goddess of life and prosperity, awards Gift of Life Re-Spins with the added gift of Double Wilds. Scatter, or the eye of Ra, opens the way to Free Spins at the top of the pyramid, while collecting bonus symbols gives the chance to enter the realm of Anubis, and the possibility of winning the Gift of Wealth Jackpot.

“Built on top performing Divine Fortune game mechanics, our casino partners can expect a strong performance from our latest release. We’ve added some high variance and created a polished and beautiful Egyptian style art package. Mercy of the Gods is a top-quality proven performer and I’m looking forward to what our players think about it across our network.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

Cash-O-Matic is an adventure packed with Free Spins and Multipliers.

 

NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic is a 1024-bet way, 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed with the look of an old-style cash machine and loaded with game mechanics.

The new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary AvalancheTM feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, AvalancheTM sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.

Cash-O-Matic is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.”.

In the main game, the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.

“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse AvalancheTM action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
