Gold Volcano is an oddly named, classical slot game from one of the most established slot developers. As the name suggests, the basic idea of the games is to win the free spins. The free spins also have some nuances. Which means, it doesn’t stop with the free spins. The slot also has some distinctive roll styles and features. The only way to experience this is to roll it twice.
This is an eight-reel slot with eight rows and cluster paylines. Everything about the game is not that elegant and well made. But something should be made practical as well as minimal right? The background of the slot is plain red with a high dormant volcano behind. For an outsider, the game should look like a lava adventure on steroids. But the colour scheme is distinct in every way and does not ruin the overall effect.
Here the symbols included are represented by 4 precious materials. The gold symbol is the most valuable giving the players 1,000 x the total stake for 30 or more on the grid. Gold Volcano comes with 2 wild symbols. There is the standard wild which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. The second wild also replaces all symbols but adds a 2x multiplier; this appears in the Pressure feature and free spins. The piece of volcanic rock will be the scatter.
It's a kind of a free spin here. It's called the eruption feature. This is activated when the players get 6 consecutive cascades and no more further wins are created. This begins with 5 free spins. In addition to this, the free spins are played on a bigger 8x8 grid as the volcano erupts on each free spin to spew out more symbols and fill the grid.
A feature which is unique called the crystallisation feature will be one of the bonuses. This is triggered when the players fill the meter with scatter symbols. For every 3 symbols collected, the feature upgrades a different precious material into the most valuable symbol; which will be gold. There are 3 levels that each require 3 scatters to fill.
Gold Volcano is a perfect slot to spend time and win well. Besides its minimal setting, nothing here is so basic.
