Is it a slot? Is it a honeycombed 118,700 ways to win madness? A little of both in this new exclusive video slot from Sky Vegas.
If you like your slots traditional, then walk away now. Midas Millions mobile slot is many things, but traditional it is not. Though it is a five reel slot, the honeycomb effect creates no paylines, allowing any four or more touching symbols anywhere on the reels to create a winning way to win. It makes it fairly easy to anticipate a win as any block of symbols easily stands out.
We have to say that we were not huge fans of the theme. King Midas, that shows up every once in a while using his magic touch to turn wilds into golden wilds and spreading more wilds across the screen, looks fairly buffoonish. The generic graphics of your high cards dotted with high end cars and planes only remind you that this high class theme has been done before and far better by many (NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot for one).
That said, Midas Fortune slot is not without some charms. The big draw here are the Wilds and the big grouping of symbols that can lead to some decent wins from time to time, and wins do occur fairly frequently. However, this is a fairly low volatility slot. Don’t let the 1 million jackpot prize fool you; to even get close to that you’ll need to bet the maximum which is 500 in cash per spin. If you are betting a more conservative £€$1 a spin, the maximum jackpot if you hit 12 symbols with a golden wild (x2 multiplier) would be… 2,000 in cash. Nice, but not exactly a big jackpot amount.
The reason for this, is despite the frequent wins, the return to player rate on this mobile video slot is fairly low at 94.02%. Add to that free spins that are hard to catch (you need the symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5) and that only gives you about 20x to 40x your bet back and Midas Millions starts to lose it’s appeal.
For apparently turning everything he touches to gold this King Midas doesn’t have the millions we’d have expected. We are not saying that there isn’t some gold hiding in these reels. The sticky wilds during the free spins certainly help, and if you can imagine getting 12 symbols on those reels then your a hopeless optimist and good luck to you.

Wild Symbol: The Midas Millions symbol is wild and replaces all symbols except the free spin symbol. However, each wild can only be used in one group of winning symbols at a time. The game will pick for you the highest possible combination win.
Connecting Wilds: King Midas pops into the game, and connects any 2 wilds on the same diagonal row with more wilds in between.
Super Wilds: If the super wild symbol shows up, King Midas gets up to his old tricks and starts touching up to 6 adjacent symbols and turns them into gold wilds. We've rarely seen 6 symbols, mostly you'll get an additional 2 or 3 gold symbols, but we've hit four a couple of times.
Gold Wilds: Are the one you want, giving you a multiplier of 2x and turning any symbols and wilds in the group to gold.
Free Spins & Sticky Wilds: You'll need three free spin symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to get 10 free spins. No multipliers but King Midas shows up from time to time, turning symbols on the reels into sticky wilds which stay on the screen until the end of the free spins. Not the easiest free spin bonus to get and certainly not the most profitable, but it's one of the best way to get a healthy top up to your bank roll during this game.
King Midas may have turned items to gold in a single touch in the old Greek legend, but this cheesy Vegas Midas doesn't like to share.
This Midas Millions game has some good wins from time to time, with the abundance of wilds being the primary driver throughout, but the excitement and wins just weren't big enough to thrill us.
