King Midas marks the next entry into the popular Age of the Gods series! It’s the perfect pick, too. After all, Midas is able to turn anything he touches into gold. So certainly, letting him get his wealthy hands on your balance is bound to make you rich, yes? Of course, there’s always the annoying moral of his story about not being too greedy. But we’re gamblers! We don’t call it greed, we call it a risk. And we’re ready to risk it all to win big on this videoslot.
Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas’ RTP ranges between 95.35% and 96.34%. The end result is just a few percentage points off from hitting the average 96%. Like in Medusa & Monsters, this game also has special features that fit the story! You’ll see Midas hand symbols that turn icons into golden Wilds or adds a multiplier to existing Wilds. There are also five gem bonuses that players can trigger! They’d be the best special feature, if not for the four progressive jackpots.
While watching symbols turn into Golden Wilds is super satisfying, all other visuals look dull. The background image is just a large room with very few decorations. And all the interesting animations are hidden away behind the bonuses! Fortunately, with so many special features, you’re bound to trigger one sooner or later. But if you’re hoping to get a half-decent win from this Playtech release, then we wish you luck. You’ll need it!
The icon design in Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas is well done. Not only do we not have any filler symbols like playing card royals, but each icon also has a golden version. That’s twice the effort Playtech had to put into this slot, and we’re glad it did. It works out quite nicely! But we may be biased because the icons can give us some fantastic cash prizes.
Midas Touch: This symbol only appears on the third, fourth and fifth reel. It will always point to the left, and it has different effects depending on the selected icon. If the symbol isn’t a Wild, it will become one. And if it is a Wild, its multiplier will increase, to a 3x maximum.
Gem Bonuses: There are five of these in total. To activate the initial special feature, collect two gems on the first and fifth reel. After spinning the Scatter on the fifth reel, you will win one of the following five bonuses:
Progressive Jackpots: This special feature activates randomly. Your goal here is to collect golden coins, which reveal different jackpot symbols. Match three jackpot icons to win the associated progressive jackpot!
There’s not much to talk about when it comes to graphics. They’re an improvement over the predecessors, but they’re not really interesting. A few more animations wouldn’t have hurt anyone, Playtech.
Fortunately, the ridiculous amount of bonuses in this game more than makes up for the somewhat disappointing visuals. And considering its popularity, many players would agree.
