Book of Midas Slot Overview

Book of… mechanics has spread across dozens of different genres of video slots.

This includes Ancient Greece, where the 5 reels of Realistic’s Book of Midas picked up its theme.

There are just 10 paylines, so it's fairly simple, but it boasts free spins and expanding symbols for a few extra layers. Here’s the full Book of Midas slot review so you can explore it all in detail.

Books of Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece is a fertile breeding ground for slots, with Zeus and his lightning bolt, temples with gleaming white columns, and olive wreaths for your head. Book of Midas tackles one of the most famous myths and one that’s of obvious interest when playing slots.

That’s Midas, the legendary king whose mere touch could turn anything to gold. That may sound wonderful, but there’s a catch: there weren’t any exceptions. Midas nearly killed his own daughter with a hug.

You might not be cursed, but you still need to be responsible. To protect yourself, use timeout or self-exclusion functions where available.

Touch of Gold

The theme is a good excuse to fill the Book of Midas slot with gold. Columns that would be snowy marble in any other Greek-themed game have a rich yellow tone here. Instead of a wreath, there’s a golden crown. Don’t forget the Book of Midas bonus features, where regular symbols can be marked with a gold frame before expanding.

Some aspects of this game are more generic, like low-value card symbols that fill the bottom of the paytable, but when you get to the icons with higher payout potential, like the flying horse, fountain, rose and apple, you can see where the royal setting meets Ancient Greece.

Book of Midas RTP and Variance

The usual RTP of the Book of Midas slot is 96.05%, although some casinos may adjust it. The variance is medium.

How to Play Book of Midas

Do you have a golden touch?

  1. Don't forget that your budget and limits should be fixed before you start the slots game. You don’t want to get carried away.
  2. You’ll find some useful information on the loading screen. The rest is split between the paytable, rules page and info page, all of which are available in the menu.
  3. Also in the menu is a bet page with all possible options, starting with the 10p minimum. There’s another link to it on the main screen if you need to modify it later.
  4. If you want to mute the sound, that’s on the main screen, too.
  5. Spin the reels and hope for the best, but be ready if they don’t land your way.
  6. Have fun, and stay in control.

How to Win

Some modern slots get complicated with their scatter pays, cluster pays or hundreds of thousands of ways to win. Book of Midas keeps it simple.

There are 10 paylines crossing the 5 reels, and if you want a payout, at least 3 matching symbols need to follow one of those paylines, adjacent and consecutive from left to right.

The wild symbol and the scatter symbol are the only ones that don’t have to follow the regular rules.

Top Wins

  • There are 6 cards at the bottom of the paytable and 5 themed symbols at the top.
  • Your least valuable symbol is the 9. Even when you find a full combination of 5 of them, its win multiplier is no more than 2x your bet.
  • The win multiplier for Midas himself, however, which is the most valuable symbol, goes up to 100x for 5-of-a-kind.
  • Other payouts for different combinations of winning symbols can be viewed in the paytable.
  • Overall, the max win available is x2500.

Book of Midas Bonuses 

Most modern slots have a bonus feature or two so you don’t just have to focus on your winning symbols. Book of Midas has two bonuses.

Like Fist of Destruction, there are both expanding symbols and free spins, although the mechanisms are different. Here, you get a chance at expanding symbols even if you don’t manage to trigger the free spins round.

Free Spins

Book scatters are multipurpose. They work anywhere on the reels and can even operate as a wild (separate from the Midas wild). Most importantly, they can trigger free spins:

  • 3 scatters = 8 free spins
  • 4 scatters = 12 free spins
  • 5 scatters = 25 free spins

Retriggers are possible. During free spins, one symbol is chosen at random. It will turn gold, then expand to fill an entire reel as long as doing so will enable it to complete a winning line and offer you a payout.

King Midas bonus

Expanding symbols aren’t just confined to free spins. They can show up in the base game, too, although at random times. Again, there will be a golden frame before they grow to fill all 3 rows and finish a payline.

Who exactly was the Midas mentioned in the title of the Book of Midas slot?

He was a mythical king in Phrygia, which is now part of Turkey but was within the Greek sphere of influence back then. There are a few versions of his life story, but the famous part is how the gods granted him the ability to turn anything he touched to gold. Like many apparent gifts, it soon turned into a curse, preventing him from eating or drinking and nearly killing his daughter. He asked the gods to take it back.

How does the free spins bonus work in the Book of Midas slot?

The book scatter symbol is the key, with the number of books deciding the number of spins. You start with 8 spins for 3 scatters, then 12 spins for 4, with the maximum number being the 25 spins awarded if you find 5. There are retrigger opportunities, too, plus additional expanding symbols that may boost your chances.

What are golden symbols in the Book of Midas slot?

Golden symbols are chosen at random. They’re guaranteed in free spins but can show up randomly in the base game, too. A golden symbol can expand, growing to fill an entire reel from top to bottom. That means there are more chances it will fit into a line, which means more opportunities for your total win to grow.
