If you’re on the lookout for one of the hottest slots games on the planet – then look no further than Volcano Eruption – a 5-reel slots game from Nextgen. Although it’s not quite as advanced as some of the newer 7-reel slot games that have been released online lately, we can personally attest to the fact that this game is certainly up to par in terms of its technological offerings.
It’s not just hot because of the molten lava erupting from the volcano at the heart of everything the game has to offer – as there’s also a constant flow of hot payout options, and really hot bonuses flowing out of it, too.
Set amidst a tropical forest, this game is certainly hot enough for even the most ardent slots gamers. The graphics are fun and colourful, embracing a plethora of wildlife including lizards, parrots and monkeys. It also features Wild and Scatter bonuses and a truly unique themed feature called the “Eruption Feature”.
The lowest payout starts when you match the numbers 9 or 10 in quantities of 3, 4 or 5 which pays between 3 and 100 times your stake. Matching a similar amount of letters will net you slightly higher with five As or Ks netting you 150 times your winnings. Although these symbols are more at home on video poker games, they actually work well for this slot machine for some odd reason.
Payouts get even hotter when you start matching the animal symbols with 3 apes wining you between 15 x and 100x your winnings, three parrots between 3x and 250x, and three lizards netting you a smouldering 3x to 500x.
Payouts positively reach boiling point when you start reeling in those bonuses. Wild bonuses appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and, as they substitute for all symbols apart from scatter symbols, you’ll soon start racking up the winnings.
Get two scatter bonuses anywhere on the 3 x 5 reel grid and any winnings will be doubled. However, if you match 3 scatter symbols on the grid you’ll get a massive 5-times your winnings – and you’ll initiate the game’s biggest bonus of all the Eruption Feature.
During the Eruption Feature, 3 volcano symbols will generate 5 re-spins, whilst reel 3 will expand so wild covers all symbols. Selected symbols will become Wild Symbols too to increase your winnings even further.
No, certainly not, this is a slots game that can be played to suit all tastes. New slots game players and small stakes players can enjoy playing from as little as 1 line at 0.01 – whilst high rollers can enjoy playing a maximum 25 lines at 2.00. Lines can also be played at 3, 5, 15, 15 and 25 combinations whilst other stakes that can be played are 0.02, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2. 0.5 and 1.0.
There’s no denying that this casino game is far different than many of the fruit slot machines that flooded the online gambling market when online casinos first launched. With fun graphics, lots of lines and stake options, loads of different symbols to pay out on, some old favourite bonuses and the unique Eruption Feature – I can’t see the volcano lying dormant. In fact, hopefully, the payouts will be erupting very soon and well into the foreseeable future!
