The Hand of Midas – Slot Explained
Hand of Midas is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot machine that, for some reason, appears to be under the sea. Maybe the project started out as Neptune or Poseidon and then someone got inspired or bored and changed it to Midas. Whatever the motivation, the backdrop is an ethereal view of columns, rocks, and steps leading up from the cave. The decorative vine leaf frame and scroll logo complete the ancient Greek style, as does the mystic music.
On the loading screen, five yellow lightning bolts remind players that Hand of Midas is a very volatile game. Volatility is definitely the word too, due to the almost continuous bonus round and many long dry spells.
The home page also acknowledges a decent 5,000x potential, while the default RTP continues Pragmatic’s trend of being consistently high (give or take), with Midas delivering a value of 96.54%. Base bets range from 20p/c up to £/€100, with a 25% increase if you activate the Ante Bet feature. Doing so will add more scatter symbols to the reels, doubling your chances of triggering free spins.
In many ways, Hand of Midas is a traditional slot machine in terms of rules. This extends to the way winning combinations of three or more matching symbols appearing on the first reel are formed. There are plenty of them too, 12 to be exact, divided into six low paying 10-A symbols and six high paying 10-A symbols. The premium symbols consist of cups, fruit bowls, treasure chests, daughters of Midas in solid gold form, Dionysus and Midas. Landing combinations of five bonuses on a line are worth a payout of 5 to 20 times your stake.

The proven KO combination is Sticky Wilds, as well as the multiplier, and the Midas hand pretty much features both phases of the game. The base game isn’t impressive, but when wild animals appear they add a random 1x, 2x or 3x multiplier to your total win. The player can look to the right of the reels while the current active multiplier is displayed. Withers appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, replacing all paying symbols, while the multiplier is added when more than one is on the screen at the same time.
Hitting 3 or more of the slightly intimidating hand scatter symbols will trigger the free spins. Before the spin begins, symbols are removed from the reels and special little holes appear on the reels containing scatter symbols. Each slot spins a small spin to make a spin of 1, 2 or 3. The total is then carried over to the bonus round and can no longer be activated, at least for distraction.
During the free spins, when wilds appear, they are added to the win multiplier as in the base game, but with two important changes. First, wildcards are sticky, so they stay in place for the rest of the feature. Second, the win multiplier does not reset between spins; It can stay the same or increase.
Whether it’s a warning in your head or not, free spins also come with a minimal guarantee of winning. The amount depends on the number of active distractors, so 3, 4 or 5 points attract a minimum win value of 10x, 20x or 30x of the total bet. If the bonus round ends without exceeding the minimum amount, the free spins will be reset.
Depending on local laws, some players may be able to purchase free spins from the base game. There are three options: a total of 100x, 200x or 300x leads to free spins with 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
