We Check out the New Red Tiger Gaming Slot – Midas Gold to See Whether It Really Has the Midas Touch
Betsafe Casino has recently added the latest Red Tiger Gaming Slot to their casino Midas Gold. This 243-way slot focuses on the myth of King Midas, whose touch turned things to gold, and as you would expect, this features heavily on this slot.
Using an unusual reel array, you will find a 5×3 reel layout with 15 independent reels and pay any way format giving the 243-way combinations. With no main bonus round to trigger, you are looking to create as many matching combinations as possible in the base game.
The main feature that occurs during this gameplay to help create these wins is the special King Midas Symbol which can appear on any of the reels, and he can also pop up at random in front of the reels to trigger.
When the King Midas feature starts, he will randomly select a symbol on the screen, turning it to gold, these symbols are then locked in place, and a re-spin is granted. If more matching symbols land in view on the next spin, they are turned into gold, and the process continues until no new matching symbols are found.
If King Midas lands again during the re-spins, he will upgrade the originally chosen symbol with a higher value symbol, and the re-spins begin again (this is probably the key to the biggest wins).
If you have played slots such as Jackhammer I and II (NetEnt), you will be instantly at home playing this slot as the main mechanics are very similar.
In our playtests, the biggest wins came from the King Midas feature when the lowest symbols are selected since they are much more common on the reels so getting many 5 of a kind symbols seems a lot easier.
It should be noted, though, that this slot advertises up to 2000x stake wins, so if you do happen to get very lucky with the premium paying symbols from the Midas feature or get a lucky symbol to upgrade during the re-spins, you could be in for a huge win.

Midas Gold Slot
We can’t fault the design and graphics of the Midas Gold slot, which is truly fantastic, but in our playtests, we did find the slot to be slightly underwhelming given the lack of main bonus features on offer.
We managed to get several wins well over 100x stake from the Midas Touch feature, and there is definitely more potential to this slot, but there are also long, bleak periods in the base game where it seems too hard even to get a 3 of a kind win.
So whilst the slot does offer some serious win potential, I think most players will find the base game somewhat disappointing, where you are literally waiting for the Midas feature to activate to stand a decent chance of a decent win.
Not the best slot release from Red Tiger Gaming, but maybe worth a short session.
