Join four mighty gods in a battle of power and fortune on the slot from Play’n GO. Divine Showdown will take you into a mythological universe for a high-volatility reel clash between the most powerful deities from all four corners of the world. Prepare for an intense gameplay with random multipliers and features as well as a free spins round where you will need to chose your favourite god or goddess to battle it out for wins of up to 5,000 times your bet.
Divine Showdown is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Available on desktop or mobile, you can bet from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin. The game has maximum volatility (10/10) with a default RTP of 96.51%. Some operators might offer the game with the reduced RTP of 94.50%, always make sure to read the help files to fund out which version you will be playing.
An otherworldly realm is opening up the soon you fire up the game. Held down by heavy metal chains it will be the place for the showdown between the four gods – Thor, the Norse god of thunder; Wukong, the Chinese monkey king; Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and war, and Anubis, the Egyptian god of death. Next to the slot logo is a hidden multiplier bar that will activate during the features.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 1x to 2.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are joined by four premiums – Wukong, Anubis, Athena and Thor – at the high level. Hit five on a line to win 8x to 16x your stake. A golden icon with a mighty sword is the wild and top-paying symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and yielding 20x your bet when five land across the reels. It will appear a reel-tall stacked wild during some of the features. The scatter is an emblem with all four of the god’s symbols combined.
As expected from a slot featuring some of the most powerful divine deities, it comes with intense gameplay that lets each of the gods display their mighty powers. However, it starts more mundane, although potentially very lucrative, with a randomly activated Multiplier Reel in the base game. The lock on the rock next to the slot logo can open up at the start of any spin to reveal a multiplier between x2 and x10 for the current round.
And there is more in the base game. Any of the four gods can randomly appear at the start of a spin to grant you a Power Spin with his or her distinct feature. A respin is triggered while the respective god applies his/her modifier, while the Multiplier Reel can also activate for even bigger win potential
Hitting three or more scatters on the reels in one spin will trigger the Free Spins selector with four options. Once the feature is triggered, you must choose one of the Gods to represent you in battle. He or she will receive three lives before the round starts.
Your chosen deity will take position on the left-hand side of the screen before the battle reel spins to decide whether you battle one of the other gods or whether you are awarded another free spin.
If your chosen god wins then their power feature will be applied to the next spin. If the opposing god wins, you lose a life and the opposing god’s power feature will be applied to that spin. The battle reel will spin again after a battle has concluded. The feature continues until you have lost all your lives.
Divine Showdown is a superbly designed slot with stunning visuals and impressive animations of the four gods. The top pay in a single spin comes in at 4,000 times your bet for a full screen of wild symbols with an x10 multiplier. Not that it will happen often but according to the data show it is much more probable than on other Play’n GO creations, namely on average 1:100 million spins. Overall, an intense game that is worthy of the mighty gods.
