Who wouldn’t want the ability to turn everything into gold with no more than a single touch? Unfortunately, this turned out to be well over King Midas’s head, when he fell victim to his own greed, realising that the things he took for granted all his life are much more valuable then gold.
The myth about the Midas touch has been cleverly interpreted by Red Tiger, transferring the story onto the 5 reels and 243 ways win Midas Gold slot.
Staying true to the theme, the developer does a good job of creating an atmosphere of wealth and abundance worthy of the slot’s plot line by choosing King Midas, The Queen, The Throne, The Golden Goblet and the Bowl of Fruit to be the high value symbols.
When it comes to the lower value symbols, the developer decided not to deviate from the traditional A, K, Q, J and 10, which was compensated by the introduction of the alternated golden versions of high value symbols, selected by the player at the beginning of the bonus round.
Founded by a highly qualified team of gambling industry experts, Red Tiger Gaming has been producing top quality slots that can be played across different platforms and devices – PCs, laptops, mobile phones and tablets.
In addition to slots, the developer has also launched their own software of the most popular table games: Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. However, slots remain the company’s main focus and some of their most popular titles include Wild Nords, Treasure Mine, Lion Dance etc.
How to Play It
Midas Gold is a 243 ways win slot, meaning that the player wins every time the matching icons land anywhere on the connecting reels, left to right. All symbols, including the lower value icons, become payable in the combination of three, awarding higher amounts for each additional symbol within the combination.
There is no Max Bet option and the stakes are adjusted manually, using the “Total Stake” tab placed to the left, at the bottom of the game screen. For the players who enjoy uninterrupted spin session, Auto Play is available. Here, you can pre-determine Auto Play options, set up the number of automated spins and decide when the auto spins will stop, be it after the bonus feature is activated or after a win.
Although the theme has provided a lot of potential, especially when bonus features are concerned, Red Tiger has decided not go further than The Midas Touch Respin Feature.
The Bonus mode is unlocked when the King Midas icon appears on the screen, allowing the player to select any random symbol which will become golden during the bonus round. Once the re-spins begin, this symbol will remain locked on its landing position, awarding additional spins.
Once there are no more golden symbols on the reels, the Bonus feature will be completed and the player will be returned to the main game screen. This is as far as the developer went with the special features, which is somewhat compensated with the generous winning potential.
The stakes run high in Midas Gold, making this slot perfect for high rolling players. Starting at only $0.20 per spin, the maximum wagering amount goes up to $500.
The maximum payout a player can get is the x2000 bet increase, which can potentially generate one whole million – if you play with maximum bets, that is. The theoretical return to player percentage is calculated at 96.26%, placing the game in the medium variance category.
Due to the fact that the potential payout can be pretty high, there can be quite a few dry spins before any substantial amount is won. This does not mean that Midas Gold will dry your budget faster than any other average slot; the betting range, with the lower limit of only $0.20, makes the game equally suitable for both high rollers and players who are on a budget and who need to plan their bets upfront.
With the bonus respin feature, a few dry spins will be easy to endure and it will not put too much strain on your budget. All the while, the players get to enjoy the slot’s great visual features, which, together with the max payout, can be considered as Midas Gold strongest point.
