Play ‘N Go have taken the story of King Midas for inspiration with their Gold King slot game offering. Everyone will already know the tale of the King, as everything he touched would turn to gold. Having made the wish, though, he would soon realise that it was not always rewarding as his daughter would be turned into gold following a hug!

The story may have been left to one side in this Play ‘N Go slot game, however it is evident the inspiration has been taken from it. Our Gold King review will look to leave players with all the information they need to know in order to taste what obtaining so much gold is like!


Gold King is played on a 5-reel grid and has 20 winnable paylines available. Players do not have to be flush with their own gold to place a spin on this slot game, though, as options range from just €0.20 per spin. However, those that want to add to their own riches can do so with wagers as high as €100 per spin possible. There is a Gold King Free Play version available to play as well, perhaps to see if you have the golden touch?

Play ‘N Go have kept their ‘Autoplay’ button available in this slot game, as players will be able to spin the reels uninterrupted for between 20 and 500 spins. These can be set to stop when a win is achieved or a certain amount of losses have been made.

Following the theme of gold, it is no surprise that we found every symbol to be coated in the precious metal when doing our Gold King slot game review. There are playing cards (10, J, Q, K, A) which represent the low-value wins, whilst there are also picture symbols that only appear on reels one and two. There are also the gold bars and the golden rose – which acts as the game’s most valuable symbol and the Wild. Land five of these players can expect to earn up to 2,500x the bet whilst it also has the power to replace all other symbols on the grid to form winning combinations except for the King himself.

Feature Bonuses

Each spin will see a random symbol selected and fill 12 spaces on a single reel, therefore making it a little easier to form a winning combination. Players are able to win a Golden Spin at any time and this will see reels one, three and five filled with just one single symbol that is stacked.

As mentioned, there is a King symbol and he represents the Gold King Scatter icon. When he appears three or more times on the reels, players will be awarded with 10 free spins. These feature is known as the ‘Super Spins’ as each reel receives an enhancement.

Players will notice during this feature that the playing card symbols are stacked eight high on each reel, whilst the picture symbols will now fill three spaces on any reel they appear on. The Wild golden rose will be available as a stack of six or seven on any of the reels as well.

If the King appears on any of the reels in either one, two or three positions, players will be awarded with more ‘Super Spins’. One King will provide an extra two spins, whereas two and three will provide four and 10 ‘Super Spins’ respectively. There is no limit to the number of times this can be retriggered. Therefore, if players have the Midas touch, then they could have an afternoon full of ‘Super Spins’!
