Divine Showdown: Slot Overview

Fans of mythologically themed slots never have a hard time finding something to play. Most software developers give this genre a crack sooner or later, and the category is bulging with options. The latest company to let their champion loose in this competitive arena is Play'n GO with the ambitious slot Divine Showdown. Most mythology slots focus on one religion or belief system. There is a ton of Thor/Norse god slots, Greek and Roman, and of course, the otherworldly gods of Ancient Egypt. Play'n GO have gone down a slightly different route. Instead of keeping the religions cordoned off, why not combine several of them in one place? What could go wrong?

Well, the gods are not exactly known for sharing. They don’t want their supporters wandering off to follow other divinities. So get four of them in a room, and you have a recipe for some titanic struggles. Play'n GO have cleverly incorporated this competitive spirit into Divine Showdown where the four different gods literally battle during special features. Us mere mortals want this to happen because when we choose the winning deity, the rewards are there for the victor.


Divine Showdown is a good looking game, although, it could be prettier and we will come back to that later. Its 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline grid sits in front of a mash-up of swords, arenas, temples, and cliffs. It certainly looks like the kind of place gods would duke it out. Below the grid is a bar that scrolls horizontally to allow bets to be placed from 20 p/c up to £/€100 per spin.

Click the paytable to view the 9 base game symbols starting with 9 to A royals. These are followed by the Chinese monkey god Wukong, Anubis the Egyptian god of the underworld, Greek Athena and Norse god Thor. Steely-eyed Thor, who bears a striking resemblance to the Hemsworth brothers, tops the base game table at 16 times the stake for five of a kind. The golden wild is worth more at 20 times the stake for a five of a kind combination, and it also substitutes for any other pay symbol. Other key stats include the volatility which Play'n GO list as very high. RTP can fluctuate between 94.5% and 96.51%, or even lower actually, so always be sure to have a look in the paytable.


Divine Showdown: Slot Features

Multiplier Reel feature
You will notice there is a Multiplier Reel above the reels – randomly on any spin, a multiplier between 2x and 10x can be applied to your winning combinations. This is known as the Multiplier Reel feature.



Random Power Spin feature
Divine Showdown also comes with a Power Spin feature – if the gods desire, they can summon a Power Spin randomly to reward you with a free respin. On this re-spin, 1 of the gods will use their power to help you achieve greater riches. Here’s the unique power each god possesses:

Wukong – he adds wild reels to the reel set
Anubis – 1 or 2 symbols transform into wilds
Athena – 3 reels are synchronised to display the same symbol
Thor – all high value symbols transform into the highest value Thor symbol for bigger wins



Free Spins feature

There’s also a Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 scatters (represented by all 4 gods’ symbols) simultaneously in the base game. You then choose 1 fo the gods to represent you in battle – the chosen god will then appear to the left-hand side of the reel set with the battle reel spinning.

The battle reel then determines whether or not you battle 1 of the other gods or if you get a free spin. Beginning with 3 lives, the battle reel landing on the SPIN icon will give you a free spin. The Multiplier Reel feature can come into play on the free spins too to help proceedings.

If the battle reel lands on another god, you go to battle – the gods fill the battle reels with symbols. The god with the most symbols will be victorious. A free spin with the chosen power feature is then played. If a battle is lost, you’ll lose a life and a free spin plays out with the opposing god’s power active. With 3 lives awarded initially, the free spins will end when all lives are lost.



Divine Showdown: Slot Verdict
When a developer goes this large with a theme, the rest of the game really needs to step up. In some ways, Play'n GO have achieved this symbiosis, in others ways Divine Showdown falls a little short. Some criticism first. The graphics, while being above average, don’t quite do enough to convey the awesome coming together of four mighty gods. The symbols have a Street Fighter 2 vibe to them that are a little flat. Don’t get us wrong, the graphics overall are good, and convey action, but an injection of more flair and life would not have been missed.

The positive news is that the theme, on the whole, works well. The idea of bringing a diverse range of gods together, rather than focusing on one pantheon is an intriguing one. Developers often hype battle sequences in slots, but we aren’t playing full-blown video games here, so they are usually point and click at best. Despite that natural limitation, the battles here make sense and tie the features with the theme together well.


Over all though, while being an entertaining game, Divine Showdown feels like a slightly missed opportunity. You don’t get the impression that Play'n GO have completely poured their heart and soul into it. A slot with a theme this epic could have been massive, instead, it has settled for above-average status. Perhaps we are being too hard on it. There is plenty to enjoy here, especially for fans of the theme who will be able to loose themselves in some intense gaming sessions. The high volatility will sort out the truly dedicated from the long line of wannabes, and there is up to 5,000 times the stake on offer if the gods find you worthy.
