Gold Volcano Slot Review – Play’n Go

It is already July now and we are over halfway into 2020, Play’n go has 52 games set to release this year, we have hit game release 24 out of 52 so far by the studio. I recently reviewed ‘Nyjah Huston‘ and ‘Troll Hunters 2‘, both were surprising and fun to try out. I have also gone back in time to review some of the studios most successful releases to date. Including ‘Reactoonz‘, ‘Moon Princess‘ and ‘Fire Joker‘. Now it is time for another new release, titled ‘Gold Volcano‘. Set to release July 16th across all sites.

Gold Volcano Slot Review Casino Play'n Go Visuals Base Game

As stated in the slot title, this game’s visuals are based on volcanos. With a firey volcano behind the reel set, gloomy skies from the eruptions and mountains in the distance. Visuals are very bland, with most detail within the various colourful symbols. There is a running seismograph below the reel set and the volcano has a rumble animation frequently. Overall, I wish the visuals showed us more detail.

Gold Volcano has a setup of 8 reels by 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3 rows, this includes cluster pays of 4 or more matching symbols. This game is high variance with a set RTP of 96.2% and max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.

There are 10 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by purple, red, green and gold gems. In addition to these regular symbols is a scatter symbol and blue gem wild. The highest paying symbol is the gold premium gem, which pays 1,000x for a cluster of 30 or more symbols. A wild symbol is randomly created when winning symbols are removed, wild substitute for all symbols except the scatter.

Gold Volcano Slot Review Features

In the base game symbols are pushed up to fill spaces inside the gold volcano. An effect is randomly triggered when the base game is non-winning, there are 3 different ‘Dormant Features‘ which can trigger. These features are;

  • Rumble – Symbols are shaken into new locations and 1 scatter is added.
  • Lava – An additional layer of a random symbol, except scatters is created.
  • Excavate – Between 3 – 5 wild symbols are added to random locations.

Symbols can turn into gold by collecting scatters, progression is not reset when triggering the free spins feature. 3 scatters = Purple Gem transformed, 6 Scatters = Red Gem Transformed and 9 scatters = Green gem transformed.

For each symbol,cascade, the magma level rises by 1. 6 Cascades trigger 5 initial Free Spins. During these spins, symbols erupt upwards & outwards to fill additional spaces outside the gold volcano. Winning clusters can be created anywhere. 6 Cascades trigger 1 extra free spin.


Overall, I think this game is a very unique release by Play’n Go. With high variance on offer, thanks to a max win capped at 10,000x and set RTP of 96.2%. Be sure to try the game out for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
