Time to discover whether King Midas’ golden touch is actually a gift or a curse. You probably know the legend of the King Midas and his ability to turn everything into gold by a single touch. What seemed to be a gift soon turned into a curse, because Midas even turned his daughter into gold. Now, IGT decided to give all players a chance to find out for themselves if the golden touch is a blessing with their product called Goldify. The 2015 release features five reels, four rows offers 40 adjustable paylines and is playable from $0.40 per spin.
The IGT product boasts very good graphics and a matching soundtrack. During base game, punters can turn one of the available regular symbols into golden ones and win 5x their normal value. Try to land at least three Golden Rose Scatters and win up to 100 free spins with up to 5 Goldified symbols. King Midas will substitute for all regular symbols, since he represents the Wild and is also the symbol that pays the most.
The reels of the IGT title are set against two stone pillars. Apart from King Midas Wild and the Golden Rose Scatter, the symbols populating the reels fit the theme perfectly, so you will see Midas’ Daughter, Pegasus, Army Helmet, Harp, Ring, Vase, Pillar and Apple. As we mentioned earlier, during base game, spinners can choose one of the symbols to turn it into gold, using the Goldify option. Once the symbol turns into gold, it will be worth five times more than the regular value.
How to Play
Since the 2015 release offers 40 adjustable paylines, gamers can decide for themselves whether they want to play with 1, 10, 20, 30 or all 40 lines. Also, the coin value can be altered, so set the denomination somewhere between $0.01 and $2. If you decide to use all 40 paylines, the minimum bet you can place is $0.40, while spinners cannot wager more than $80 per spin.
The slot pays left to right, so in order to win a payout, players need to land at least three matching symbols on an active payline, starting from the far left reel.
Once you get tired from hitting the Spin button, click on Autoplay, located in the bottom right corner of the screen, and select up to 50 automatic spins. The Goldify option is just above Autoplay, so click on it and choose one symbol to turn it into gold. You can also turn the symbol into gold simply by clicking on it directly on the reels.
Strategy & Tips
The Free Spins Bonus is triggered when three or more Golden Rose Scatters appear on the reels. Three Scatters will get you 15 freebies with three symbols you can goldify. Four Golden Roses come with 50 free spins and four picks for goldified symbols. All five Scatters on the reels will reward punters with whopping 100 freebies and five goldified symbols.
Since the goldified symbols come with 5 times the regular value, players can expect lucrative payouts. The best thing is that gamers can retrigger the feature up to 5 times, so, in theory, it is possible to win up to 500 free spins.
Look for the Midas’ Daughter on the reels, since she will get you 400 coins for five of a kind, or up to 2,000 coins if you turn her into gold. The Pegasus is also rewarding offering up to 300 coins, or up to 1,500 coins if you turn it into gold.
The IGT product is optimized for all devices, so you can try out the golden touch of Midas on your desktops, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. When it comes to visual appearance and gameplay, it makes no difference whether you play it from the comfort of your chair or on the go.
