The latest release from Play’n Go takes players way back to the familiar land of Greek mythology and the all-too-famous King Midas. The Gold King and the slot inspired and named after him are both in line with the old story, and have a pool of riches to unleash upon any one of you who dare press the Spin button.
The Golden Lining
Even though you would normally be looking for the silver lining, this is not the case with the Gold King, filled with all kinds of gems and precious stones to decorate his most favourite possession of all – his gold. Hence, it is no surprise that the symbols found the slot screen are decorated in the same manner.
This is what sets the Gold King slot from other recent Play’n Go releases – there is no neon lighting, no flashy symbols or excessive use of imagery on them. The image of King Midas and all his gold dominate the game.
Although it might seem as if King Midas is only interested in his gold, this slot provides a different point of view. Through its 5-reel 20 fixed payline structure, it includes the standard card symbols A, K, Q, J and 10 alongside jewel-embellished crowns, golden bars and much more. The minimum wager amount starts at €0.20, while the highest bet you can make per spin is €100.
All the King’s Prizes
Speaking of prizes and rewards, one extremely generous symbol is the Rose, also known as the Wild symbol. In a winning combination, it rewards players with 125 your basic stake if you manage to get 5 across a payline. The crown will give you 25 times your stake for the same scenario, which practically goes against the miser personality of Midas.
Another extravagant feature of this slot is the Super Stack – it appears in the base game, where one random symbol will fill 12 consecutive spaces on its reel, allowing you to do the same with the remaining reels. If the symbol happens to be the crown, get ready for a reward 500 times your stake.
Ultimately, the Gold King Scatter symbol is responsible for rewarding players with Free Spins. It has to appear on the first, third and fifth reel at the same time in order to trigger the 10 free spins. During this bonus game, players are eligible to receive another 2, 4 or 10 free spins should 1, 2 or 3 other scatters appear on the reels. The best part about this bonus game is that there is practically no limit to its occurrence.
The Gold Spin feature is also available, although a bit less probable than the aforementioned one. It allows any spin from the base game to turn into the Gold Spin, which in turn results in random symbols appearing as Super Stacked in reels one, three and five.
