The Wild Symbol is the Midas Touch Icon which has the power to substitute other Symbols on the Reels to form winning combinations.

Loosely based on the fictional character of King Midas, the game offers an appropriate overall look and theme heavily leaning towards gold. Almost everything is gold except the fruits for a while, as even they eventually turn to gold as the game progresses.
According to legend, King Midas adored golden treasures and lavish feasts and valued them above all other things. His lust for gold was said to be limitless. He was granted the chance of making one wish. His choice was that everything he touches will turn to gold. He got his wish and it came true. Before his very eyes everything he touched at his banquet immediately turned to gold, to his initial delight.
The very same thing happens with the game Midas Touch. Everything the Wild Midas Touch Symbol affects really does turn to gold including all the fruit Symbols!
Ok, ok! In the story or legend of King Midas he finds he cannot eat the golden fruit and he ended up in misery. That is not the situation here however. We would be glad to win the top payout the game has to offer and benefit from King Midas' touch, so there is no need to worry about that.
