Polynesian themes have become increasingly popular over the years, as have volcano themes, therefore Quickspin appear to be on to a winner with Volcano Riches slot game!
Whilst there is a sense of danger that can be felt around an erupting volcano, players needn’t fear anything as this is a great volcano to be close to. Based on one of the Hawaiian islands, this Volcano Riches game review will take players through what they need to know to ensure they are not burnt by molten lava and strike it hot in a great way!
Volcano Riches is played on a 5×4 grid that features 40 paylines for players to be able to win from. Players can get in on the Hawaiian action with as little as R0.20 per spin, whereas those that want to try and claim the biggest rewards from the exploding volcano can place bets as much as R100 per spin! Those that want to test out the slot before committing real money can do, with our Volcano Riches Free Play demo above!
All paylines are active, although bettors can adjust the speed that the reels turn, whilst they are also able to set a period of time in which the reels spin automatically.
There are only a handful of symbols available within this Volcano Riches slot game, although they all have the ability to pay rather well if the best combinations are formed. There are four statues, two people and the Goddess of Volcanoes Pele (the Golden Sun) that all represent the theme Quickspin have gone for. They can pay between 4x and 1000x the bet. These symbols all appear stacked.
There are also two wild symbols available in the slot game as well. The first wild can substitute for the other symbols on the reels, whilst it can also pay 40x to 1000x the bet for their own winning combination.
The Kilauea volcano is also a wild that has a special feature attached to it that is explained below.
As mentioned, there are certain symbols within this Volcano Riches game that provide players with special bonus features. The first is the Kilauea volcano and although this can only be triggered when it lands on reel three, it provides players with a great opportunity to win big.
This feature sees molten lava hit the grid and transform symbols into wilds. Up to five wilds can be created, which would then potentially see the number of winning combinations be formed rather high. This feature has the ability to retrigger as well, though, as more volcano wilds can appear.
Wilds can land on reels two and four in this particular feature round, and will see wins be formed from both left to right and right to left of the grid. It is important to note that only the top win is paid per line, though.
Three or more of the Golden Sun (Pele) symbols will trigger a ‘Free Spins’ feature as this icon represents the game’s scatter. This round is activated when the symbols land on reels two, three and four.
RTP (return to player)
Our Volcano Riches review found that the return to player (RTP) rate is set at 96.43%, therefore getting up close and personal with an erupting volcano could certainly bring its rewards, even if it is highly risky!
