Theme and Graphics
Midas Golden Touch from developer Thunderkick is a slot machine inspired by Greek mythology, and in particular the legend of King Midas. Readers hardly need to be told who King Midas was. Even if you haven’t read or forgotten the popular Greek legend, you’ve probably played slots dedicated to the famous character. Just in case, let us remind you that Midas turned everything he touched into gold. At first he thought this ability was a gift, but he soon realised it had become his curse.
The Greek-style graphics and sound effects work perfectly together.
Gameplay and Paylines
The game is played on a standard playing field, which consists of five reels, has three rows with 15 fixed paylines. Winnings are awarded for matching images from left to right only on the winning line.

More about the special elements below:
• Wild (a golden glow between two palms) independently forms combinations if dropped from left to right on an active line. They are paid at the maximum odds. In addition, it replaces other icons in a chain, except for the scatter. In such situations, involving an additional multiplier. It depends on the number of wilds and can be from x2 to x32.
• Scatter (the temple) starts the freespins. In order to take part in the free spins, a minimum of three scatters must be collected somewhere on the screen.
The Free Spins are on an unusual basis:
• Free Spins – Three, four or five scatters trigger ten, fifteen or twenty freespins. They are played at the same bet, but the customer does not risk his money, but only receives payouts. There is always a Wild symbol on the screen. The place for it is chosen by the random number generator.
Each win during the round triggers Sticky Respin.
• Sticky Respin Feature – Any winning combination triggers re-spins. The icons in this chain will “stick” on the screen, and the rest of the pictures will be replaced. Respin lasts until the pay sequences are formed.
Three scatters on the screen during the freespins are entitled to ten more spins.
The prize spins require no special skills or abilities from the player. The reels spin automatically.
