Gold King is powered by Play ‘N Go and has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin, the game is based on Midas and has a Greek mythology theme. It comes with super stacked symbols and a Super Spins feature where you can get unlimited free spins with 1 symbol being super stacked.
Visually, Gold King is quite ornate and gives the impression of wealth as you’ll see lots of gold coins in the backdrop. Symbols on the reels include gold-plated A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as gold bars, jewel encrusted amulets and golden crowns.
The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 25 times your stake for 5 across a payline. By far the most lucrative symbol is the Rose which is the wild symbol – it substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter and rewards you with 125 times your stake if you get 5 across a payline.
In the base game, Gold King benefits from a Super Stack feature – in each spin, 1 randomly chosen symbol will fill 12 consecutive spaces on each reel giving you the chance to fill the reels with the same symbol. Just hope it’s the golden crown for wins of 500 times your stake. Also in the base game, there’s a Golden Spin feature – this is activated randomly whereby reels 1, 3 and 5 are filled with a random Super Stack symbol.
There’s also a Super Spins feature which is played when you get the Gold King scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – you will then receive 10 free spins. If you get 1, 2 or 3 scatters on the reels during a free spin, you will win an additional 2, 4 or 10 free spins. There’s no limit to how many extra free spins you can win too!
During each free spin, 1 of the A, K, Q, J or 10 symbols will be super stacked to fill 8 consecutive spaces on every reel. The good news is that wilds also appear stacked to take up 6 or 7 consecutive spaces! Furthermore, the crown, amulet and gold car symbols will expand to occupy the whole reel.
Gold King is a rather simple slot once you get spinning the reels – the bigger wins will come in the Super Spins feature as the wild can appear super stacked. It’s a very high variance offering with potential payouts of 5,000 times your stake on each spin! If you like the theme, IGT’s Goldify is also based on King Midas.
