Volatile Slot Slot Review – Golden Rock Studios

Microgaming has decided to collaborate once again on a new game release. This time with a new studio, Golden Rock Studios was founded by two of the industry’s most respected leaders. Former William Hill CPO James Curwen and Will Mathieson who is behind 7 years of blockbusters slots. The studio first started production in 2019 and now creating content with one of the biggest in the industry. This first collaboration is for a new game titled ‘Volatile Slot‘, set to release 11th November across all sites.

Volatile Slot has a backdrop of a volcanic island surrounded by the ocean. Along with a sunset in the clouds and palm trees on the beaches. Visuals are well made and artwork is very basic with bold brick colors. The reel set has a border of the wood and vines wrapped around. The visuals are nothing unique but tie together well for this game.

This game has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. Volatile Slot is a high variance game due to the max win capped at 25,600x and set RTP of 96.1%. You can bet from £0.10-£100.

Volatile Slot Slot Review Symbols

This game has 11 symbols in total, including 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K And A. These are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by drums, fire, shrines, and an island female character. There are also 2 different wilds, including volcanic wilds and exploding wilds.

Volcanic wilds appear on reels 2,3 and 4. These can randomly transform into exploding wilds that explode and award a multiplier of x2,x3 or x4. The most valuable symbol is the island female character, which pays 40x for 5 across a pay line.

Volatile Slot Slot Review Features

Central to this game is the free spins feature, this is activated when you land 3 wilds within one spin. This awards 10 free spins, you can retrigger by landing 3 more wilds during spins. Both types of wilds are active during spins,however, this reel set has more of both wilds. So these will land more frequently to make things more volatile and fun.


Overall, this game does have volatility like the creators aimed for. However, the fun factor is debatable. The bonus feature has the best potential thanks to the multipliers combining. The base game is slower and this game shows nothing new to us, unfortunately. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
