Gold Volcano Slot Game (Play n’ Go)

Gold Volcano Slot Game (Play n’ Go)Play n’ Go is back with a new release titled Gold Volcano. In this slot machine, a player is tasked with finding gems and gold, which have been spewed around after a volcanic eruption.

I have seen this type of theme before, so it’s not purely an original one. After playing this slot game, here is my review:

Game Set-Up

Gold Volcano does have a very large game area, and the slot relies on 8 reels that have between 3 and 6 symbols each. However, the game can expand and get as many as 8x8 reels.

To form wins, Gold Volcano uses the Crystal Pays system, while its volatility is medium to high.

Among the features that I interacted with is a Dormant (Lava, Excavate variants, or Rumble)

Betting and Prizes

Getting started is easy, and with as little as $0.10, you will be able to place a wager. The highest amount that Play n Go allows per spin is $100.

The rewards from this slot are quite high, and we are talking about 10,000x the stake.  Though the game is highly volatile, it’s RTP of 96.20% helps to cushion the player.

Gold Volcano Slot Features

Gold Volcano does not use the same features that are all too common on many slots with this theme.

Play n Go has done really well with the features, and I was impressed by the use of features inspired by volcanic action.

The features begin with Dormant, a very interesting feature that you can trigger during losing rounds. With the help of the Rumble, you can be able to move the symbols around, which will enable you to get a scatter.

Then there is the Lava feature, and it’s a feature that expands the game area as it flows out of it.

You have the Excavator to help you with some random wilds (as many as 5 are available)

After the formation of wins, you will get another feature called the Pressure bonus.  Pressure builds up randomly, and this action can cause a wild symbol to be left behind as others move on to the next spin.

On a lucky day, you can get a multiplier from such wilds, and this will greatly improve their value.

Crystallization will improve the status of the wilds to Gold versions. With three scatters, there will be at least one high-value icons that get boosted to Gold status.

The Eruption is the last feature, and with it, you will be able to boost the game area to as high as 8x8 symbols. This also comes with 5 free spins, but you will need to trigger up to 6 cascading reels in a single round.

Theme & Design

Gold Volcano has a very nice design; however, the Volcano Eruption theme only appears in the background image.

I would have expected the developer to include it in the actual symbols, but this did not happen.

The game area has lots of low-value card symbols, in addition to several gemstones that come in various colours.


Gold Volcano comes with everything that a player can ask for. The RTP is excellent, and the top payouts are very attractive, especially to high rollers.

I love the Cluster Pays system used here, but if you are not very well versed with highly volatile games, you will need to approach the game with caution.
