Casumo Casino has recently added Thunderkick’s latest online slot Midas Golden Touch to their casino, this is well ahead of its official release date of April 10th 2019 so if you want to check this slot out early Casumo is going to be your casino of choice for now.
Obviously, this slot is themed around Kind Midas and his ability to turn everything he touched into gold and with an intro screen that boasts up to 32x Multipliers and maximum wins in excess of 10000x stake it would seem Thunderkick is certainly pulling no punches with the volatility on offer with this machine.
At the core Midas Golden Touch is a regular 5×3 reel 15 fixed payline slot with a regular free spins mode triggered by the 3 scatters, the key feature in the base game are the special Multiplier Wild symbols which start at 2x, but if additional Wild symbols land on a payline the value increases to 4x, 8x, 16x and finally 32x for a full payline of wilds – alone this equates to a 2400x win.
The free spins round is where things get very interesting though as a mechanic not too dissimilar to the Jackhammer slots (NetEnt) comes into play with winning combinations held on the reels and re-spins granted allowing for more matching symbols or wilds to land in view.
You can also fully re-trigger the bonus round by landing 3 scatters in view during any of these re-spins with a nice collection meter below the reels keeping track of how many you have collected so far, whilst the re-triggers are difficult to get we did manage several in our playtests.
The paytable looks fairly decent with a max win of 75x stake but when you start to add in the effects of the multipliers it only takes a couple of held wilds before the wins really do start to increase massively grant wins well over 100x quite regularly.
