Midas Gold Slot Review
The legendary King Midas frequently appears in the online slot world, so Red Tiger’s Midas Gold is nothing new in terms of its theme. However, this slot machine does surpass its similarly themed rivals in other areas, most notably in the jackpot department. There is a progressive jackpot prize up for grabs in this game and one which can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The unique and prosperous 243 ways to win feature makes an appearance in this slot, with wagers flexing from $0.20 up to $500 a game. Admittedly, the non-progressive prizes the game carries are a little on the light side, but the RTP (return to player) rate of 96.22% ensures that wins are frequently occurring, even if they are petite in stature.
Theme and Symbols
As mentioned, what you’re looking at here is a King Midas-themed slot, which means that alongside the sharp and crystal clear high playing card graphics are a selection of Greek mythology symbols, which add thematic flavour to the game. Those symbols can include baskets of fruit, Phrygian golden gauntlets and Midas’ throne as well as an Ancient Greek goddess. Wins with these symbols range from 0.3x up to 8x your total stake, so they are petite, as we’ve said.
To get your hands on the progressive jackpot (and there are three of them), you’re going to need to land three jackpot symbols on the reels. Quick Hit, Super or Mega Jackpot prizes can be won, with a Daily Jackpot prize also up for grabs for players, which will be guaranteed to pay out its wealth before the time indicated on the screen.
Special features are few and far between in this game, but not absent. Sure, there are no wild symbols, but King Midas himself does act as a special symbol and can deliver quite the bounty of goodies when it does show up on the reels.
Midas Touch Bonus
Whenever King Midas appears on the reels, he will automatically (and randomly) select one of the symbols on the reels to become a gold icon. All other identical symbols will now become golden in colour and lock in place on the reels, and a re-spin will then follow for the chance of increased wins. If any further matching golden icons appear it will trigger another re-spin and continue to do so until no additional symbols appear, at which point winnings are paid out, and the bonus ends.
It is worth keeping in mind that King Midas can also reappear during the re-spins and turn other symbols into golden icons, too, expanding the duration of the feature, and the amount you can win in the process.
Our Take on Midas Gold
Red Tiger Gaming’s Midas Gold is simple and basic. However, there is fun to be had here. It won’t set you back a packet to play, it offers frequent wins, and although the non-progressive prizes are petite, the Daily Jackpot gives every player an equal chance to walk away with something special after playing this game.
