Stakelogic released its Volcano Deluxe Slot in August 2020, and it’s a five-reeler featuring four rows across 20 active Paylines.
Graphics are fun and done in the style of a cartoon, and there’s a strongly tropical feel to this game. So if it’s winter in the northern hemisphere, you may enjoy being whisked away to a Polynesian island, complete with golden sand, palm trees and an appropriate soundtrack.
Ultimately, there’s a simple, old-school, almost nostalgic feel to the visuals here. Additionally, the way wins and features are announced somehow makes you feel as though you are in a real casino.
Overlooking it all and overseeing proceedings is a huge volcano with lava emerging from the top – and a face bearing a slightly creepy smile. But while it may look sinister, that volcano can deliver fiery features and hot wins.
How to play
The betting range in Volcano Deluxe Slot is quite broad to suit both leisure players and high rollers, from 0.20 to 100 credits. Working from furthest left, you’ll need three matching symbols to scoop a win.
Hula girls, Tiki statues, drums, coconuts and parrots are among the exotic symbols on the reels, and they join the usual less lucrative playing-card symbols, done out in colourful style to suit the context.
The volcano symbol, with that word on it, is your highest payer, worth 25x stake.
Volcano Deluxe Slot Special Features
The Wild is that word in gold lettering. The Scatter is the volcano face with the word BONUS. As ever, the Wild replaces all icons bar the Scatter. It’s worth the same as the volcano icon mentioned above.
These incorporate four modifiers which can activate at random on any whirl as the background turns red and you enjoy one of these perks:
- Random Wilds: After the volcano hurls rocks over the reels, a random number of symbols turns Wild
- Super Wilds: Similar to above, but at least one reel turns fully Wild
- Volcano Spins: The volcano again chucks a boulder, this time to launch the free spins, of which you will receive between four and 15
- Cash Prize: Here the eruption leads to a cash reward, which is selected randomly
To trigger this, you’ll need to land Scatters on the middle three reels. A random number of free whirls between 8 and 20 will be yours, and random and super Wilds could appear as you play. However, you won’t be able to retrigger this round, since Scatters do not show up in it.
The Wild modifiers mentioned above can activate – but not the Cash Prizes or Volcano Spins.
You won’t find a progressive jackpot here. Instead, it’s possible to win 5,100x stake.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player is fairly standard here at 96%. Volatility is somewhere towards the lower end of the medium range.
You should find that there’s enough going on in Volcano Deluxe Slot to ensure things stay fun, and to keep boredom at bay. And you will also appreciate the fun graphics.
Equally, it may well appeal if you appreciate playing at a gentle pace, with relatively relaxing gameplay, even if the biggest rewards in the world of slots aren’t up for grabs here.
And while volcano-themed slots have certainly been done before, this one offers a nice balance between the random features and the free spins round.
