The Hand Of Midas Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play is back with a brand new slot announcement for the month of February. I recently reviewed ‘Eye Of The Storm‘, which is a letdown thanks to the max win of 1,000x and overused theme choice. Today we are learning all about ‘The Hand Of Midas’, set to release 11th February across all sites.
This slot is based on Midas, who has the power to turn anything he touches into gold. 1 of 3 members of the total house of Phrygia and known in Greek Mythology. This slot has a lot of different animations on loop and a lot of detail to look at. The background artwork looks to be set underwater, with treasures and Midas’s hand floating on the right side of the reel set. Along with a lot of other details to catch your eye.
The Hand Of Midas has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.54% and max win capped at 5,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £125.
The Hand Of Midas Pay Table & Symbols
There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by cups, platters of fruit, chests of golden coins, Mida’s Daughter, Dionysus, and Midas. In addition to these regular symbols is a wild symbol and scatter. The highest paying symbol is the Midas premium, which pays 40x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatters, appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4. When a wild symbol hits it adds a random multiplier of 1x, 2x, or 3x. If more than one wild hits multipliers add to each other.
The Hand Of Midas Features
Landing 3 or more scatters symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. Before spins begin for every scatter from the initial trigger 3 mini reels appear containing 1, 2, or 3 free spins. All mini reels award a number of Free Spins and the total amount awarded is played. During spins, every time a wild symbol hits it remains sticky until the end of the feature. The multiplier increases by 1x, 2x, or 3x randomly. There is a minimum win guaranteed for this feature depending on the number of scatters on the initial trigger.
5 Scatter Symbols = 30x Win Guaranteed.
4 Scatter Symbols = 20x Win Guaranteed.
3 Scatter Symbols = 10x Win Guaranteed.
If there are no more free spins and the minimum is not reached the round re-triggers. For each scatters symbol that initially triggered the feature one mini reel appears and adds randomly 1, 2, or 3 Free Spins. Special reels are in play during the Free Spins round.
There is an option to select a bet multiplier depending on your selected bet. The possible values are;
Bet Multiplier 20x – Normal Play
Bet Multiplier 25x – The chance to trigger the Free Spins is doubled and more scatters are present on the reel set.
You can purchase the Free Spins feature with 3 – 5 scatter symbols on the trigger. 100x Total Bet = 3 Scatter Symbols, 200x Total Bet = 4 Scatter Symbols and 300x Total Bet = 5 Scatter Symbols.
Overall, I think this slot is a great release by Pragmatic Play. With a max win of 5,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers. Be sure to try out the slot for yourself on release. Check out our exclusive casino offers.
