Like most slot games in the Thunderkick catalogue, the design here is very high spec and superbly done. King Midas’s columned palace forms the backdrop to the action here. On the reels you’ll see A to 9 royal values as well as a treasure chest, a chalice and a golden crown. The bearded figure of King Midas is the top paying standard symbol, awarding 10, 20 or 75 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The king’s hands are the game’s wild. These replace all of the standard symbols and also pay 75 times your stake for a 5-on-a-payline combination. The wild also has some magical multiplier properties. The more wilds in the winning combination, the bigger the multiplier boost:
- 1 wild = 2x
- 2 wilds = 4x
- 3 wilds = 8x
- 4 wilds = 16x
- 5 wilds = 32x
Land 3 or more of the temple scatter symbol and you’ll trigger the Bonus Game feature and with it, 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Land a winner during the feature and the successful symbols are locked in position and the reels spin again. The respins keep on coming as long as a new winning symbol joins the winning cluster. This is known as the Sticky Respin feature.
Also, 1 wild is added at random somewhere on the middle 3 reels on each of your free spins. Re-triggers are possible too if you manage to land 3 or more scatters on the same free spin. With 10 more free spins to be won, you could play with 30 free spins in total. As in the base game, wins with multipliers will benefit from multipliers up to 32x.
The ancient myth and legend theme is a hugely popular one with slot game players and developers. We’re in safe hands with Thunderkick. The visuals are here as bright and sharp as you’ll find anywhere. There’s a very decent array of features on offer too, especially in the Bonus Game feature where the streak respins can really get things moving.
The medium to high variance means that it packs a decent payout punch too – there’s up to 10,100 times your stake to be won from each spin/free spin. The key to winning big is to get big multipliers from the wilds. If you like the myth and legend theme, then Midas Golden Touch is definitely worth a spin. If you want King Midas to turn your bankroll into gold, I also recommend you try Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas (by Playtech).
