When you hear the name Holy Diver, your first thought may be the awful Dio song of the same name. And that thought would be spot on, as this is another of Big Time Gaming's slots that are very loosely based on weird and popular songs. No doubt inspired by the original medieval themed video clip, the Holy Diver slot puts you back in medieval times working to succeed on a king's quest.
Well.. ah back to the game which is a 5 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win, as the slot is part of BTG's Megaways series. The slot has a mixture of standard slot symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, A) as well as jewels. You get small and large green gems, blue gems, red gems, and purple gems. There are multiple bonus features in the game, including free spins, multiplying wilds, random wilds, stacked symbols, wild reels, win multipliers, and free spins.
During the free spins mode, the hero will walk across the screen on his quest, and there are diamonds that can be obtained that re-trigger the spin feature. The hero's quest is a major portion of the game, as he happens upon chests every few spins that give a bonus the chance to pop up and help you win dough. The combined features and reel layout give the game a variable return to player (RTP) percentage of about 96.5%.
This game is a lot of fun. I usually don't like medieval style games, but I had a lot of fun guiding the hero on his quest here. I really like the adventure screen on the bottom and seeing what chest bonus came about was a real highlight. Holy Diver plays well on both desktop and mobile devices, and I encourage you to give it a try in free play mode here before you put down your hard-earned money on the slot. It's just a shame that the music from that horrible song pops up occasionally!
