Midas Golden Touch Slot was, of course, the riches-obsessed monarch from Greek mythology who famously turned everything he touched to gold. Now you can do the same – from your keyboard!
Midas Golden Touch, from respected Swedish games studio Thunderkick, is played over three rows with five reels and 15 set-in-stone Paylines. It was released in April 2019, making it one of the newer offerings out there.
Free spins and sticky respins
Get stuck in with a great free spins feature, complete with sticky respins, multiplier Wilds and potential winnings of up to 10,000x stake.
Then there’s the background in HD graphics – think opulent marble floors and majestic Grecian columns at the entrance to Midas’ temple, in front of a green hilly backdrop, with Midas himself also gracing the reels.
In short, it has the good looks and outstanding design players have come to expect from Thunderkick.
How to play
Enjoy this game on desktop or your mobile device of choice. Place your bet in the normal way, selecting the Autoplay function if you wish or spin the reels manually.
There’s a wide betting range, from 0.10 up to 100 coins. Win by lining up between three and five matching icons on a Payline from left to right.
There are a dozen symbols in all in Midas Golden Touch Slot , with the typical playing card values 9 through A serving as usual as the lower-paying icons. (Their design is pretty elaborate, though.)
Other, potentially more lucrative, icons include the crown, silver chalice, treasure chest and Midas himself.
Midas Golden Touch Slot special features
The golden gates symbol (the entrance to the temple) is the Scatter. The Wild, a pair of hands holding a glowing golden globe, replaces all symbols bar the Scatter, and only shows up on reels 2 through 4. Any win with one Wild or more has a multiplier added depending on the number of Wilds.
Launch this when at least three Scatters tumble on to the reels, as the entire temple, turns to gold and you look forward to 10, 15 or 20 free whirls depending on the number of Scatters.
In the bonus round, the sticky respins feature means any winning icons on a Payline are locked in place as the rest of the emblems respin. This carries on until no more winning symbols are locked.
Also in this round, at the start of each spin, a single random Wild symbol is placed on the reels, again boosting winnings up to x32.
Gather three Scatters during the respin for a full retrigger, giving you 10 additional goes.
You won’t find a progressive jackpot in Midas Golden Touch Slot, but that’s offset by other chances to win big.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player on this game is a theoretical 96.1%, while Thunderkick describes its volatility as medium to high. That’s a fairly standard percentage for a slot game.
You should find Midas Golden Touch Slot entertaining and highly playable, with a strong payout potential. However, at least one industry reviewer has said they found the base game slightly boring, although things perked up after they triggered the respins, as Wilds dropped into place to grant multipliers.
Equally, the theme of Midas turning reels into gold is not wholly original in the slots world, and it’s hardly the first slot with an Ancient Greek theme.
But only you can say if this one’s solid gold or not! Give it a go – and let us know how you get on.
