Pragmatic Play comes with a new slot release that sends us back to Ancient Greece with The Hand Of Midas.
The new slot release is a 3 rows, 5 reels with 20 pay lines slot, with a 96.54% RTP and it is a High Volatility slot, with a maximum potential of 5000x the bet size.
Jumping in the slot you will see a background with pillars and chests full of gold, representing the story of Midas and how everything he touched turned to gold.
As the legend says, one day, King Midas accidentally turned her daughter in gold, and she is present in the slot game as the third-best symbol which pays 12.5x the bet size for a full line. The other best symbols are King Midas himself, which pays 20x the bet size as the best symbol, and the God Dionis symbol that pays 15x the bet size.
As it’s an Ancient Greece themed slot, the rest of the symbols also have a design inspired by the Greek legend: Gold Treasure, Bowl of Fruits, and Golden Cup with Wine. The rest of the low paying symbols being the usual 10 to A playing cards symbols.
There is a Wild symbol present in the slot, which will land on reels 2, 3, and 4, giving the chance for players to connect with multiple symbols. The Wilds can also land as Double Wilds, and each wild will also add a 1x increasing multiplier for the spin.
Landing 3 or more scatters will award players the Free Spins feature, which will reward them with a random number of free spins and a Sticky Wild feature with Increasing Multiplier for each wild that lands during the free spins. The multiplier will remain valid through all the free spins and this is where the big treasures can be won.
Similar to The Dog House slot, The Hand Of Midas, has the potential to pay out insanely big wins during the free spins if the player is lucky and lands the wild symbols at the beginning of the free spins bonus feature.
Once the player lands 3 scatters, the reels where the scatters landed will be turned into mini reels that will show a number from 1 to 3. These numbers will be counted together and will show the total number of free spins won. Landing 4 or 5 scatters, will unlock more reels and more mini reels, providing more free spins and a higher chance for landing wilds.
The Hand Of Midas also has a Double Chance feature and a Bonus Buy feature, as we are used in the last released slots from Pragmatic Play.
By paying an extra 25% of the bet, the Double Chance will give players a higher chance of landing the free spins by providing them with more scatters and a higher chance to land them.
The Bonus Buy feature has 3 options: 3 scatters for 100x the bet size, 4 scatters for 200x the bet size, and 5 scatters for 300x the bet size.
If players don’t want to instantly buy the free spins feature or pay for the double chance feature, they can play The Hand Of Midas with a bet size from 0.20 euros up to 125 euros per spin. With a 5000x the bet size, the maximum win is 500.000 euros.
You might ask why is the maximum win 500.000 euros if the max bet size is 125 euros? Well if you activate the Double Chance feature, the 25% extra pay for the spin will not count for the maximum win potential and the winning connections. So basically, if you play with the Double Chance feature, the maximum win potential will be 4000x the bet size but still up to 500.000 euros.
The graphics look very good in this new game and the gameplay is smooth and nice. We give this new slot a 4.5 out of 5 rating, as the high volatility with only 5000x the bet size is not that impressive compared to what other providers are doing at this moment.
The Hand Of Midas is now available on all Pragmatic Play Casinos.
