The wombat says: Every now and again a game comes along that blows all other slots out of the water – and we have a feeling that Gold Volcano slot could be one of those titles. This is our favourite Play ‘n Go release for a while. Well, we like the Wild Blood II slot as well, but that is another conversation.
But why I hear you ask? It’s all to do with the pyramid grid game play, a whole host of cool features and a jackpot top prize of 10,000x your stake.
So, will you be making an eruption of wins in Play’n Go’s Gold Volcano slot or just get covered in lava? Well, you can also try their Reactoonz 2 slot which is similar in many ways apart from the fact that it features a bunch of aliens on the reels.
It’s time to fire up the red hot reels and see…

Look and Feel
Open up this slot and you will see that your reels are set on a great big ruddy volcano, while behind it is a moody backdrop with thunderclouds, flashes of lightning and more ominous-looking volcanoes.
The theme is designed up perfectly, even down to the symbols that explode out of the volcano, the lava that rises as you open up more reels and the seismic patterns that appear at the bottom on your win gauge.
Another great-looking slot from Play N Go
Gold Volcano Game Play
Gold Volcano slot is played on a grid shaped like a volcano with a 3-4-5-6-6-5-4-3 reel formation, although this expands to an 8×8 reel set during the free spins round. As mechanics go, it’s pretty radical, pushing the baot further out than games like Dreamzone with its 5×5 grid… Place your bets from 0.10 to 100.00 per spin
The aim of the game is to create cluster wins by matching 4x or more symbols horizontally or vertically. After you make a win, the icons will disappear and be replaced by more to fill in the gaps upwards – more clusters may then be formed! FYI: Only the highest win in the cluster is paid.
Your reel icons are made up of gemstones in various shapes – gold hexagons, green squares, red triangles and purple circles; while the lower values are playing card suit symbols. The Blue W is the wild symbol and will land at random during any winning cascade. These can also land as x2 win multipliers.
Meanwhile, the rock is the scatter symbol and the key to the free spins.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Play ‘n Go offers a big mix of features in this slot. Let’s take a look:
This is triggered randomly in the base game on a non win spin. The volcano will erupt and 1 of the following 3 things will happen:
Rumble: The symbols on the reels re-shuffle to offer you a winning spin along with a scatter symbol.
Lava: An extra layer of any symbol pitches but the scatter is missing.
Excavate: 3 to 5 random wilds can appear.
Another random feature, this bonus is set off when all winning symbols are removed. A Wild symbol is now added into an empty space before new symbols are drop. These Wilds can also come with a x2 multiplier. Yippee!
To the top left of the volcanic reels you’ll see a meter that collects Scatter symbols. Fill up said meter, and the scatter symbols will transform any of the lower-paying symbols into highest paying Gold ones. There are 3 stages; so hit 3x scatters to transform the purple gem into gold hexagons, 6x scatters for the red gemstone and 9x Scatters for green one. These gold icons are worth x5 your bet for each.
Eruption Free Spins
Land 6x consecutive win cascades and you’ll bag an initial 5 Free Spins. Your bonus goes are played on a larger 8×8 grid where 2 central columns push symbols outwards to fill symbol positions outside the volcano.
During the free spins, the Crystallisation feature is active, plus an extra free spin is awarded after every 6 consecutive cascade. Things can really heat up here – and you could walk away with some red-hot wins…
Gold Volcano slot is a bona fide cracker, and a world away from traditional 5- reel 3-row slots. Plus, the max win of 10,000x your bet makes this one very volatile game indeed. In fact, you could say it is as volatile as an active volcano. Ha!
The big wins can be found from the Crystallisation Feature in the Free Spins. Throw in that x2 wild multiplier, and you could really be in the money.
Play today, Wombat fans. You won’t regret it…
