Gold Volcano slot is a July 2020 release from Play’n Go. Taking on the theme of an erupting volcano spewing gold and other jewels. With a expanding grid theme it starts as an 8 column slot with between 3 and 6 symbols attached to each. As we have come to expect with slots such a Gold Volcano that are played out in this grid format with cascading wins, there are a whole host of bonus features to keep things interesting, and perhaps a little confusing at first! Read our full Gold Volcano slot review to see if we thought it was worth trying out or one to avoid.
Gold volcano is an enjoyable slot to play with a range of base game modifiers which keep things interesting throughout. The max win of 10,000x is also quite appealing. The free spins bonus has some excellent potential once you collect enough Scatters to leave you with an abundance of high value gold symbols. However, some people don’t enjoy this grid type of slot game, generally speaking, I’m not the biggest fan of this style. Still, it’s a well put together slot which will have major appeal to those who enjoyed this type of format.
- High Max Win of 10,000x
- Interesting Base Game Features
- Cascading Wins
- Somewhat Bland Symbol Design
Gold Volcano Slot Stats
How it Pays and plays
Initially you start with 8 columns which are formatted into a 3-4-5-6-6-5-4-3 layout. This fits into the shape of the volcano in the background. During the free spins round you will see the volcano erupt and change into an 8×8 layout, opening up the possibility of far more winning combos.
Betting ranges from 10p/cents to 100 coins of your selected currency. So it’s well suited to lower stake players and high rollers with monstrous balances.
Play’n Go have rated Gold Volcano slot as 7/10 on the volatility meter so it’s creeping up towards the higher volatility side of things but isn’t exactly off the charts.
The RTP of Gold Volcano is 96.2%, pretty average and nothing to get excited about.
The max win available on Gold Volcano slot is 10,000x.
Symbols and Graphics
Gold Volcano slot is set on the background of an erupting volcano with a couple of mountains to either side and some golden brown smoke filled sky. The lava creeps up as more wins roll and in if the volcano explodes you’ll see new symbols spew out into the previously unfilled grid spaces above it.
The symbols for the lower paying side of things include spades, hearts, clubs and diamonds.
Premium symbols are 4 coloured gem stones, purple, red, green and the top one is the gold symbol which pays out 1000x plus for 30+ symbols clustered, whilst you will only get 35x for the same of other premium symbols. so, clearly it’s all about the gold, as the name of the game, Gold Volcano, may suggest.
Wild symbols are blue looking gems and they can have a 2x multiplier attached to them. They will subsitute for all symbols except for the Scatter.
Scatter symbols are brown rocks with “Scatter” written on them.
Bonus Features and Free Spins
There are a range of bonuses in the base game and a free spins feature to keep gameplay interesting at all times.
Dormant Feature Bonuses
These are played out in the base game and take the following forms.
Rumble: Symbols are shuffled to create a new formation and wins, it’ll also put a single Scatter symbol into the mix.
Lava: Extra symbols are added to the grid.
Excavate: between 3 and 5 Wilds are added to random positions in the grid.
This can occur randomly when all winning symbols have been eliminated from the grid. When new symbols drop in you’ll get some Wild symbols added, these may also have multipliers attached to them.
Get 3 Scatter symbols and it’ll fill the meter up in the top right corner and turn first the purple gem stones into a Gold symbol, 3 more will do that to the red gem and a final 3 extra Scatters will also turn and green gems into Gold symbols. This is where you can really start to hit the big money.
This is the free spins bonus. Get 6 cascading wins in a row and you will see the Gold Volcano slot erupt! This transforms the grid to 8×8 and spews out a load of new symbols. An extra free spin will also be awarded whenever you get 6 more consecutive cascading wins.
