31 January 2018

Time to round up January 2018 slot releases – if we can judge by the way some slot developers have started out we’ll have a ‘slotastic’ year ahead of us!

Midas Gold by Red Tiger

A take on Greek mythology, Midas Gold combines sharp, elegant design with exquisite game mechanics. According to the myth, Midas was greedy and he asked Dionysus for the ability to turn things into gold in one touch. He didn’t think about turning his food into metal as soon as he touched it, though. As interesting as the story itself, Midas Gold is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 243 ways to win, plenty of theme-related symbols, and a Midas Touch special feature that offers linked re-spins.

Planet Fortune by Play ‘n Go
