Midas Golden Touch thunderkick logo

Almost everyone knows the story of King Midas: the king that turned everything into gold by merely touching it. What was first seen as a blessing by the money-crazed king was soon recognized as a curse. Fortunately, in this slot, it is genuinely all gold that shines. King Midas can deliver respins and multipliers up to 32 x, leading to extremely lovely payouts.

How does the Midas Golden Touch slot work?

Midas Golden Touch plays out in a real bling-bling temple that overflows with shiny gold.

You play the game on 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols, and there are 15 fixed paylines.

Like with any other Thunderkick slot, you pay a fixed amount per spin that lies between $€ 0.10 and $€ 100.

The variance is huge: as we pointed out earlier, it is possible to win an astronomical 10,100 x the total bet. When playing with the maximum allowable amount of $€ 100, that would translate into just over 1 million cold, hard cash!!

The theoretical payout rate is 96.1%. That is a very decent RTP, especially for a high variance slot.

Symbols and payouts

By far, the most important symbol of all is the wild symbol. Not only does it replace all others (except the scatters), but it also pays out the most: 75 x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind.

King Midas himself, of course, could not be left out: 5 identical ones of this symbol on an active payline will also net you 75 x the total bet.

Other high-value symbols consist of a wine goblet, a laurel wreath and a treasure chest. These symbols are valued at 15 x to 25 x the total bet.

Lastly, we get to the low-value symbols, the 10, J, Q, K and A. The prizes here range from a minimum of 5.50 x to a maximum of 7.5 x the total bet value.

That is if you manage to spin 5 of the same (on an active payline).

All combinations that have 1 or more wilds in them will get an extra multiplier. The more wilds you can bring on the screen, the higher the multiplier. The minimum multiplier is 2 x, which goes all the way up to a maximum of 32 x.

Free spin bonus

3, 4 or 5 scatters will get you 10, 15 or 20 spins, respectively.

But that is not all. Every spin, you will receive one random wild on the middle reels as a little gift.

But to top it all off, you will get free respins with a winning combination, which will allow you to go for more winning combinations. The existing ones are kept in place, and as long as you keep producing winners, you continue to get free respins.

This feature can be enormously lucrative, the more if you have a pair of wilds in the mix.

Retriggers: win 10 extra free spins

Are you able to gather three scatters during a turn in the free spin bonus? Then you will receive an additional 10 free spins. Retriggers can occur indefinitely, without limits.

Our verdict on the Midas Golden Touch video slot

Midas Golden Touch is another homerun by Thunderkick: it looks cool, has awesome features and you can win a lot, no, make that a whole lot of money.

The bonus round was perhaps ‘borrowed’ from Jack Hammer 2, but because of the extra multipliers up to 32 x, the adrenaline levels are kept high.

4 out of 5 stars.
