Based on King Midas, who is known in Greek mythology for his ability to turn everything he touched into gold, the 5×3 video slot with 20 paylines and 5,000x max win potential looks to be played out underwater amid the ruins of a mysterious ancient temple, which features colossal pillars etched in gold, vivid graphics, and captivating soundtrack that is sure to engage players.
Symbols and gameplay:
Game symbols include 10-A card values as the low pays, while goblets, a bowl of fruit, treasure chests, Midas’ daughter Marigold, who, tragically, was turned to gold, the God of Wine, Dionysus, who the distraught ruler turned to for help, and King Midas, of course, all serve as the game’s premiums.
Those up to the challenge can expect a big win if the King Midas symbol land on the reels, as he is the most lucrative symbol in the highly volatile game, paying anywhere between 2 and 20x the total stake.
Triggering the extra spins mode happens when at least three Scatters land on the reels. When a winning combination is formed, a random number of extra spins are awarded. Additional chances for huge wins arise during the Bonus Mode where Wilds are sticky and where players are also able to receive extra consolation spins, part of the king’s generosity.
Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, Yossi Barzely, used a company press release to comment on the new launch…
“The Hand of Midas takes players to the land of the greedy Greek character as they look to help relieve him of his wealth on the reels.
“Our exclusive portfolio of slot games continues to grow every month, and new titles such as The Hand of Midas allow us to reach even more players and create more engaging content for them. “
The multi-product content provider’s latest slot offering follows recent hits Eye of the Storm, Dragon Kingdom Eyes of Fire, Madame Destiny Megaways, and Congo Cash, each of which enhances pragmatic Play’s award-winning and diverse slot portfolio.
As mentioned, the developer has also rolled out the latest addition to its growing live casino vertical with Mega Roulette. The single-zero roulette product has gone live across Latin America with select operators before the official launch on February 24. In addition to allowing players to make “Mega Bets,” the new game features lucrative multipliers, which award up to 500 times the stake, leading to serious win potential.
Tournament series and new slot:
Additionally, we would be remiss if we failed to mention the exciting Drops & Wins weekly tournament series, which runs through November 17th and will see a whopping €/£250,000 a month given away through Weekly Tournaments and Daily Prize Drops.
Players can expect Pragmatic to drop its next new title, Joker King, on February 18, so stay tuned!
