ABOUT MIDAS WILDS
The upcoming Midas Wilds slot is scheduled for release on 28th September 2021 and is one of many online slots inspired by the greedy Phrygian king who’d turn everything he’d touch into gold. Midas Wilds takes after similar slots inspired by this classic myth, such as the Hand of Midas from Pragmatic Play, which similarly has 5 reels and 20 pay lines.
Reflex Gaming, the developer behind Midas Wilds, has been providing top-shelf slot machines for both online and land-based casinos since 2004. The Midas Wilds slot, however, is not the first Midas-inspired game and follows after the success of Reflex Gaming’s 5-reel, 40 pay line Midas Treasure slot.
The game features a maximum of x4,000 multiplier as the maximum win, with the bets limit ranging from £0.20 – £100.
THEMES, SYMBOLS, and PAYTABLE
Not every spin may turn to gold with Midas Wilds, considering it is a medium volatility slot, but its set of features, symbols, and bonuses will duly reward you for actively playing.
The game takes place within King Midas’ palace, and it’s only expected that the dominant colour is golden-brown throughout. There is an unspecified number of symbols that can form 20 different pay lines. The symbols vary from treasure chests, King Midas, and traditional numbers and letters to golden grapes and roses and, of course, a wild symbol, represented by a gold coin with King Midas’ face.
There are also three wild boost bonuses and different scatter symbols alongside other features, but we’ll elaborate on some of them later on in our Midas Wilds slot review.
RTP, VARIANCE, and PAYOUTS
Midas Wilds does not have one fixed RTP. Rather, the RTP varies between 88%, 90%, 93.3% and 95.2%.
Concerning the variance or volatility, this is a medium volatility game, though it can transition from medium to high volatility if the Super Stake feature is triggered.
The maximum you can win is £400,000, considering the biggest multiplier you can trigger is x4,000, and the maximum bet is £100.
GAMEPLAY and FEATURES
It’s still early to evaluate the Midas Wilds slot gameplay considering the game is not yet released. A sneak peek, however, shows Midas Wilds is overall a decent-looking game, with all the necessary information such as your balance, number of free spins won, immediate and total wins, and wager amount clearly displayed and able to be adjusted (if possible) with relative ease.
It has a number of different features we’ll examine in a moment, including Wild Respins, 3 Wild boost bonuses activated with the symbol representing King Midas, a Super Stake feature, and several scatter symbols.
Midas Wilds Payouts
Midas Wilds has 20 pay lines, meaning 20 in-game winning combinations. The winning lines are from left to right, and there are also three scatter symbols that will award 8 free spins if they appear on the first, third, and fifth reels.
If a Super Scatter symbol appears on the center reel, you get 12 free spins, and 16 FS is a Mega Scatter lands on the centre reel.
Midas Wilds – Wild Bonus Boost
Midas Wilds has a number of features that can trigger solid wins or unlock different bonuses.
There are three ‘Wild Boost’ bonus features: the Rivers of Gold, Midas Touch, and Mega Wilds. The first feature is when a single reel across all three rows triggers wild symbols.
The Midas Touch is when three or more reels become wild, while the Mega Wilds is when at least three reels are lined with wilds. The Mega Wilds also awards a 10x multiplier on any wins from wild symbols.
Additionally, there are interesting scatter symbols and wild respin features. The first includes three scatter symbols. The Super Scatter triggers 12 Super Free Spins, while the Mega Scatter triggers 16 free spins.
You can also win 8 free spins if three scatters appear on reels one, three, and five. Moreover, you can retrigger slot bonuses and receive 8 more free spins if you land all three scatter symbols.
In terms of design, Midas Wilds is similar to Reflex Gaming’s own Midas Treasure slot while bearing even more resemblance to Pragmatic Play’s The Hand of Midas in terms of both theme, pay lines, and reels.
Apart from its superb graphics, sounds, and overall design, there are 20 possible winning combinations (20 pay lines). And that’s not even the best way to win money on this slot. The Midas Wild slot scatters, and wild bonus boosters increase your chance of winning cash bonuses or free spins.
And, let’s not forget, you can also trigger Wild Respins, with the number of such spins rising every time you land the Midas Symbol.
We expect this slot to get featured at numerous UK online casinos once released!
