Minted Money Slot

Play Irish banker and try and create your own coins in Minted Money, a 5 reel, 5 payline slot game from Playtech. In the main feature you’ll receive up to 16 free spins. Look out for the giant stamps which can hit on between 1 and 5 reels. Stamped symbols pay in each position on the reels. Get a re-trigger and a 2x multiplier comes into play. Stakes range from between 5p and £500 per spin.

The reels here are set within a wooden coin stamping machine. There you’ll find 4 playing card suit symbols alongside bronze, silver and gold coins. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 gold coins on a payline and you’ll receive a payout equal to 1, 9, 25 or 160 times your total stake.

The diamond is the wild. This can appear on all 5 reels and substitute for all of the standard symbols. Minted Money comes with a single bonus round. The Stamp Spins Feature is triggered by landing 2 or 3 of the 4-leaf clover scatter on the same spin. You’ll receive a payout of 2 or 5 times your stake as well as 8 free spins.

The giant stamping machine also come into play here. These can become active on between 1 and 5 reels on each free spin. The stamped reels pay all of the symbols on that reel in each position, giving you plenty of extra opportunities to create a winning combination.

If a wild appears on a stamped reel, it turns into an expanded wild, turning the whole of the reel wild.  Landing 2 or more scatters on the same spin results in a re-trigger. You’ll then receive another round of 8 free spins. You’ll also activate a 2x multiplier which doubles the payout for any free spins you have left.

Minted Money is a well-designed game. The ‘olde worlde’ visuals are nicely put together and there’s a fantastical feel to the backing track. The base game action is very simple. The free spins offer something a little unusual thanks to the stamped reels.

We weren’t bowled over by this feature though. We found it tricky to land and difficult to bag a decent win when we did. However, the 2x multiplier can provide wins of 1,800 times your stake on each free spin. It’s all solid enough but Minted Money didn’t turn out to be a banker for us. If you a slice of Irish luck, Gaelic Luck (by Playtech) is a better slot game in my opinion.
