Divine Fortune is a five-reel and 20-payline Greek mythology-themed online slot. As such, most of the slot’s symbols are based on characters and imagery featured throughout classical Greek mythology.

Plus, when a Wild symbol falls behind the Falling Wild, the Wild on Wild feature is activated. Here, the Wild symbol expands to cover the reel and increased prizes are awarded.
