We’ve all heard the legend of the Greek King Midas who was blessed, or cursed, with the ability to turn everything he touched into gold. It is little known that the King fathered a daughter who apparently inherited the same ability.
Miss Midas is NextGen's slot based on the Kings daughter. I would have thought the game should be called Princess Midas, she appears as regal as can be residing in her golden palace. Maybe she’s just a modern woman who doesn’t abide by royal affectations.
The game is set in Miss Midas’ affluently decorated residence, quite possibly not a design choice but a result of her gift.
It is a 5 reel 25 payline slot with an added SUPERBET feature now common among NextGens slot games.
Playing the Miss Midas Slot
Before you start spinning you need to set up your wager amount. Taking €1 per line at 25 lines played as an example your total wager will be €25 with SUPERBET off, €35 for SUPERBET level 1 and €50 for SUPERBET level 2.
I recommend always playing at level 2 as this gives you a much better chance of winning a big jackpot particularly in the free spins round.
The symbols to look out for once you are ready to spin are:
Miss Midas: She is a wild, she only appears on the middle reel but when you hit her symbol she can turn adjacent symbols to gold with a flick of her hand. Gold symbols become wild for every symbol except the scatter. The types of symbols she can turn to gold depend on what SUPERBET level you are playing.
If you hit 5 Miss Midas symbols you’re looking at a 500x multiplier!
The Castle: This is the scatter symbol. Get two or more in reels 1, 2 or 3 and watch in anticipation as reels 4 and 5 explode in a golden glitter hopefully settling on another wide. This will give you free spins which we’ll look at below.
5 Castles pays a whopping 2500x multiplier.
The Peacock: This is one of four high paying symbols. Match 5 of these for a 400x multiplier.
The Throne: Match 5 for a 300x multiplier.
The Fruit : Match 5 for 150x multiplier
The Rose: Match 5 for another 150x multiplier
There are also standard playing card symbols of which we want to match Aces or Kings, 5 of these pays 100x.
Miss Midas Bonus Features
Miss Midas is the wild symbol. She only appears on the 3rd reel and can turn adjacent symbols wild, which depend on your SUPERBET level. Hitting wilds is a very frequent occurrence which I found to be quite enjoyable. Who wouldn’t when they’re winning money.
Free Spin Feature
The amount of free spins you win is directly related to the amount of scatters you hit. 3 scatters gives you 15 free spins, 4 scatters gives you 20 free spins and 5 scatters give you 25 free spins.
This is where you have the chance of hitting huge payouts. While in the free spins Miss Midas the wild symbol replicates herself if you hit her. So she turns adjacent symbols gold and then these in turn their adjacent symbols gold. This leads to an avalanching affect where you can hit big prizes on multiple lines.
If you’re lucky you can also hit scatters within the free spins to win even more free spins.
All of this combines to sometimes provide a seemingly endless winning streak.
There is a small button beside the spin icon which allows you to gamble any win. You can either select the colour of the next card (50% chance) to double your money or select the suit (25% chance) to quadruple you money.
If you are planning to use this feature I recommend it for spinning small wins into bigger ones. I can’t imagine how bad I would feel taking a 500x win and losing it guessing the next card.
Miss Midas - Conclusion
I really enjoyed playing this slot. The game play was very good and big wins were very regular. I particularly enjoyed the free spins feature when the wilds cascaded throughout the screen multiplying my win as they went.
