Mercy of the Gods is an ancient Egypt inspired slot with five reels, three rows, and 20 fixed paylines on each spin. The goddess of life and prosperity, Isis, will grant the Gift of Life Respins feature as well as the Gift of Double Wilds. On the other hand, the eye of Ra will grant you the key to the free spins round where you will make it all the way to the top of the pyramid. That’s not all; if you collect enough bonus symbols, you’ll enter the realm of Anubis where you have a chance to win the Gift of Wealth jackpot.
