Old King Midas has the golden touch, but much like the legend, you might find it a curse or the start of a sea of riches.
This Gold King slot machine screams opulence. These 5×3 reels are set on a background of a golden vault overflowing with gold kinds and jewels.
The only downside of this Play’n GO online slot is that the symbols are pretty generic – you’ve got gold bars, a crown, some jewels, and golden Ace to 9 symbols.
Nothing that is really that interesting, but still very well done, with decent sounds to accompany a wealthy slot.
And it’s certainly wealthy, as there’s a top win of 5,000 times your bet for those who dare to enter this treasure room.
This Gold King online slot doesn’t hide the fact that it’s very volatile, meaning that whilst the top win is huge, getting there can take time and patience.
This is not a casino game where you should bet high and fast, unless you want a very quick thrill of the reels.
This is one where you build your stack, and only after a big win, slowly increase your bet to try and keep the momentum going.
That said, that’s kind of part of the fun of volatile games, isn’t it?
You know that most spins will be fairly uninteresting, until… just that one spin… brings you a one of a king memorable screen shot grabbing win.
In the base game this happens using what this Gold King video slot calls ‘super stacks’; ie. One symbol is chosen before each spin to come stacked 12 high on all 5 reels.
Hey, we know it’s not easy, but if it was easy it wouldn’t be called gambling.
That same can be said of many high variance slot games, in fact Gold King’s sister slot Book of Dead is similar in that way.
Except here they are called ‘super spins’ because everything is fabulous with this golden king.
Three scatters (King Midas) will trigger 10 free spins. However if you find just one other scatter during the Gold King bonus games, you’ll get another +2 free spins.
Find two scatters and you’ll get 4 free spins, and 3 scatters retriggers 10 free spins.
This means that you might start with 10 free games, but you usually end up playing around 14 to 18, which feels great as you spin.
Reason being all low paying symbols are now stacked 8 high, and all wild symbols (the red rose) are stacked 6 or 7 high.
It’s a stacking symbol frenzy. And that’s not even the best part.
What is an expanding symbol?
Well, much like in The Falcon Huntress by Thunderkick gaming, when you get a win using one of the high paying symbol, these will expand to cover the reels.
Meaning you get a win on every single one of those 20 paylines.
Can you imagine 5 of a kind symbol wins, over all 20 paylines, with the top paying symbol?Yeah, that’s how you get 5,000 times your bet.
Better yet, these high paying symbol now also pay as 2 of a kind, giving you tidbits of wins that are helpful to boosting your budget.
We’ve rarely walked away with less than about 75 times our bet, and clearly there’s much more on show.
The big drawn back, of course, is that you can easily spend that much getting to the free spins, so it’s rarely worthwhile chasing this feature.
Much like the legend of old, King Midas golden touch can be a curse if played for too.
This Gold King slot on mobile and online has unfathomable riches, but it’s only for players who know when to quit when they are ahead – or even when the vault rooms are just locked for the night.
