Welcome back to the ancient world! The Hand of Midas is the latest slot to come from leading content provider Pragmatic Play, where players with the 'Midas touch' will have a lot of joy.
The game is played out in a mysterious ancient temple setting, featuring imposing pillars etched in gold and a mesmerising soundtrack to keep players on the edge of their seats.
Now, this game will not grant you the ability to turn anything you desire into gold, but in truth this is for your own good!
With the magical ability of being able to turn anything he touched into gold, Midas' mythical power quickly became a burden - one which ended with him turning his own daughter into a golden statue!
That said, there is still PLENTY of fun to be had in The Hand of Midas, whether it's getting multiplier values combined with multiple Wilds or the Free Spins mode that guarantees all players a minimum win of up to 30x the total bet!
The Hand of Midas is a highly volatile slot that will electrify a wide variety of casino players - especially when they land 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols on any of the 20 pay-lines!
Fitting in neatly with the theme, the symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals in a traditionally Greek style. Other symbols on show are fruit baskets, chalices of wine,chests filled with gold, a gold princess, Dionysus and King Midas himself!
If you see the King Midas symbol pop up on your screen think of only one thing - BIG WIN INBOUND! King Midas is the most valuable symbol in the whole game, paying anywhere between 2x and 20x your total stake.
Visually, The Hand of Midas slot is fantastic, but there are also some really good bonus features that complement this aspect of the slot.
With the ability to purchase the bonus feature in certain jurisdictions, players can get right to the immersive Free Spins round, where a random number of spins are granted from rollers that land on the reels.
During the round, Wilds remain sticky on the reels, while also adding to the multiplier value, with players able to win riches worthy of making even Midas himself awed.
The Hand of Midas is the latest slot from Pragmatic Play, which develops five titles a month as well as providing Live Casino, Bingo and Virtual Sport solutions.
