The release date of the video slot "Midas: Golden Touch" is March 2019. Developer - Thunderkick. The Midas Golden Touch slot is not innovative. The main profitable feature is respins that last as long as the payouts continue. Similar gameplay is implemented in dozens of other slot machines. The review will contain practical information: how often free spins occur, what is the average winnings, what is the margin of bets and time needed to win on the Midas slot machine.
The formal theme of the video slot is myths of Ancient Greece. But it doesn't matter: instead of King Midas, the main character could be Dracula or Winnie-the-Pooh. There is no plot, animation, or interesting soundtrack in the game. The slot is made exclusively for winning money, not for entertainment.

The game layout is 5 × 3 (five reels). The number of lines is 15 (all fixed). Combinations are built from the left side. Each must contain at least three symbols. If there are multiple combinations in a round, all payouts are added together.
1. Scatter - Golden gate. The scatter can appear on any reel. The scatter symbol is not paid for. Three or more scatters anywhere on the playing field activate free spins.
2. Wild - Midas hands with a gold bar. Wild plays on the principle of a card Joker, substituting other symbols. The Joker plays on all verticals, appearing both singly and as a stack. The Joker creates its own, most valuable combinations. A special property of the wild symbol is an increase in payouts for a combination according to the scheme:
- doubling the payout (x2) if there was one Wild in the chain;
- x4 with two wilds in a combination,
- x8 with three,
- x16 with four.
For five jokers on the line, the winnings will amount to 2400 total bets. There are 10 common symbols: Midas, diadem, cup, casket, and symbols for cards from nine to Ace.
Examples of payouts:
- four jokers in a row from the first reel – 320 total bets;
- three jokers – 80 total bets;
- five portraits of Midas without the Joker – 75 bets, with the Joker - 150 bets;
- five nines without the Joker – 5 bets.
The single most valuable option on a single line is always taken into account. Joker combinations usually "outweight" combinations of regular symbols.
Free spins and bonus game in the Midas Golden touch slot
Three, four or five scatters in the main game trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins. According to the same scheme, the free spins are fully reactivated and new free spins are added to the existing ones. The number of restarts is unlimited.
There are three differences from regular rounds:
- 1. In the free spins are guaranteed one fixed ("sticky") Joker.
- 2. The winning combination is also fixed and does not disappear.
- 3. Spins in one free round lasts until new combinations continue to be formed in addition to the existing one.
The last point means that there are respins. In other words, the actual number of free spins will always be about three times more than the initial number.
