The classic fairytale of King Midas is a theme that slots providers love to draw from. Shiny gold, gluttony, and the search for ultimate wealth: slots players feel like a fish in the water in that world. Slots like Goldify, Miss Midas, and Midas Gold are therefore extremely popular. What about Midas Coins?
QuickSpin has also ventured into a real King Midas slot with this Midas Coins slot. Normally, the slots from this Swedish game provider excel in terms of originality, but unfortunately, that does not apply so much to the Midas Coins. It has become a bit of a tame, somewhat average video slot.
However, due to the respins and the wild multipliers, you can win very substantial amounts in Midas Coins. The maximum payout is a good 10,000 x the total bet, which is of course very interesting. So don’t miss this opportunity to test drive Midas Coins after reading our full review.
Midas Coins has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. You always play with 15 active paylines and you can make bets from 0.10 CAD per spin. The maximum bet is 100 CAD per spin. Both the real low roller and the high bet player can have fun with this video slot. The theoretical payout percentage is 96.1%. This is also a bit average: not very good and certainly not bad.
The wild symbol is by far the most important symbol of this slot. The wild replaces all other symbols anyway, except for the scatters.

In addition, every wild that is part of a winning combination provides a 2 x multiplier.
- 1 wild: 2x multiplier
- 2 wilds: 4x multiplier
- 3 wilds: 8x multiplier
- 4 wilds: 16x multiplier
- 5 wilds: 32x multiplier
The highest paying symbol is the King Midas symbol. This pays 75x the total bet with a 5-of-a-kind. The premium symbols consist of a golden wreath, a drinking cup, and a box of money. With 5 of the same, these pay out between 15x and 25x the total bet.
The low symbols are the card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A and pay out between 5x and 7.5x the total bet with 5 of the same on an active payline. The whole mechanics of the game are pretty much straightforward and simple. Spin, spin, spin. Win, win, win (if you are lucky enough, of course).
3 or more scatters will get you between 10 and 20 free spins. During the free spins, 1 wild symbol is always placed on the reels. In addition, with a winning combination, you get a spin-as-long-as-you-win feature. As long as new winning combinations arise, you will receive free respins. We've seen this a lot before, including with the King of Slots and Jack Hammer 2 slots.
It is also possible to save extra spins together. You do this by collecting 3 scatter symbols. It’s really that easy.
We expect better things from QuickSpin than this Midas Coins. They have proven in the past that they are able to come up with the most beautiful things. Just look at slots like Fruit Warp and Pink Elephants.

It is certainly not bad, but we have all seen it many times before.
That’s the reason we give Midas Coins 4 out of 5 stars. Developers from Quickspin, please, forgive us. We know you tried hard. The whole thing is in the theme itself, which is not that fresh in the gambling world.
