Midway Money Slot (Yggdrasil)

Midway Money Slot (Yggdrasil) slotYggdrasil Gaming, in partnership with Reel Life Games, has a new slot by the name Midway Money. The slot is designed to give players a glimpse into the world of fairs and circuses.

Inside, you get lots of things worth exploring, and we will discuss some of them in the review below:

Game Set-Up

Midway Money consists of a 5x4 reel design, but this can expand beyond the initial 40 pay lines. You will be working with features like free spins, regular and stacked wilds, a special meter, and a variety of modifiers (Duck Shoot, Strong Man, and Fire Eater).

Betting and Prizes

Real money bets in Midway Money start from $0.20 per spin, all the way to $50. Many players will be happy with the slot’s top prize of 6,000x the stake (which translates to about $300,000).

However, due to its high volatility, I was hoping to see a little more than that in terms of the rewards.

The RTP is good and the highest that an online casino can offer is 96%. However, the developer has offered other lower variants so you must confirm with the casino, especially if you plan to play this slot for real money.

Midway Money Slot Features

The first feature that you will come across is the wild, and as we already know, it is what will act as a replacement for other regular icons.

The slot also offers two other double-stacked wilds, and this will appear on the 4th and 5th reels, and the Strongman together with his Strength Meter is present. Landing them both within the slot’s last two reels will trigger a crack on the Strength Meter feature. Here, you either gain access to the feature or better advance on the present meter by one spot out of the twenty that are available.

To gain access to more features, the slot requires that you ring the meter bell. This way, one, two, or at times three features will be simultaneously triggered.

You may get either Fire Eater or the Duck Shoot, but if you are lucky enough, then you can enjoy both at the same time or each with Strongman.

Here is how it works:

Fire Eater: this one turns the activating symbols into low-paying icons (Royals), and thereafter, all symbols similar in type will be transformed into a single random symbol. It also adds wilds (at least 2) on the reels.

Duck Shoot: this is yet another feature, and its duty is to transform the activating symbols and other spots into extra wilds.

Strongman: with it, you get extra rows of symbols plus 10 additional lines on each row. As many as 5x8 reels can be used, together with up to 80 lines.

Also, the slot offers another regular feature, and with it, up to 7 free spins can be claimed. To do this you will need 3 bonus symbols landing on the reels. The feature retriggers as many as four times, meaning, you can get up to 35 free spins. When done enough times, the scatter icons come in to deliver payments of up to 10x the stake (if they land again).

A major element of the slot’s free spins is a feature known as the Minimum Win mechanic. With it, you will be guaranteed payment of 1x the stake at first. However, as you land bigger payouts, the top pay increases in value and will only stop once the feature ends.

Theme & Design

Midway Money is a slot that borrows from popular fair games and circus performers. Yggdrasil may not have given the slot the most impressive design, but it is a great performer that can be fully enjoyable.

On its reels is a design that incorporates things like the Ferris Wheel, a Strength Meter, and a duck shooting gallery.

As for its symbols, the initial few positions are occupied Midway Money offers Royals (10 to A), images of a teddy bear, fire breathers, a strong man, bottles, and a ringmaster.


From my observation, I can say that Midway Money has the potential to be a decent option for most online slot game players.

The game offers interesting features, but the high volatility does not blend well with its top prizes.
