Volcano Riches Slots

If there’s one thing about humans, it’s that we don’t let silly things like completely inhospitable terrain stop us from doing what we want. Not a lot of people choose to live in such regions, but you still have humans living in the cold north, scorching deserts and even near dangerous volcanoes that could blow and take all that we know and hold dear along with them. Of course, there are warning signs for such, but it’s a testament to human resilience that regardless of what land we inhabit, we manage to turn it into something useful for ourselves, adapting to the changing climate as best as we can. With this in mind, the idea of someone diving into a volcano in hopes of getting something incredibly valuable from it doesn’t seem that far-fetched. Luckily enough, that’s not what this game is about. Instead, you have large, stone tablets depicting people with voodoo mask, island villagers and scorching hot Goddess of Fire. Keep an eye out for the volcanoes, for the sun-shaped medallions and Wilds, because these three will be the bread and butter of your gameplay in Volcano Riches.

How to Play

We have to admit, the theme is certainly interesting, even if it isn’t the most ground-breaking thing we have seen.The symbols look cool enough, and the fact that most of the icons take up entire reels allows you to admire all the works the artists put into the symbols. The only ones that stand out are ones that are used to trigger features, such as Sun Scatters, Volcano Wilds and regular Wilds. Having said that, there is no rule that says the symbols have to take up the entire reel, so you will often see one symbol take up two parts of the reel, and then the top of another at the bottom of the reel. Gameplay wise, Volcano Riches plays like you would expect - a medium to high volatility title to play reliant on chasing after the bonuses it offers to make off with any real kind of cash. With a 96.43% RTP, the game is certainly good enough on the returns, but like all other slots, it needs a bit of luck from your end to hit things. Normal gameplay can feel a bit boring, and while Wilds break it up a little bit, they are rather rare outside of the Volcano placing them on the reels.

Betting Options and Payout

You can play Volcano Riches for as little as $0.20 or as high as $100 per spin, allowing both low rollers and high end gamblers to try out this slot and see if they’re going to enjoy it. The biggest draw is Volcano Wild, which appears in the middle and creates additional Wilds around it. However, with free spins, you can actually get two at the same time, allowing you to create even more Wilds and reach a massive win with enough luck and determination.

Symbols and Extra Features

We quite like the artstyle that Quickspin have gone with for their release. The stone humans in voodoo masks do a good job at replacing poker card symbols, and the actual humans and flame goddess look gorgeous. Definitely something we have to commend the artists at Quickspin for, they can always impress us in some way or another. Free spins are activated by winning three Scatters which can only appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. This rewards ten extra turns. For the duration of free spins, Volcano Wilds can appear on the reels 2 and 4 instead of just the third reel.

Our Verdict

While it’s not the best thing ever, this Quickspin release was very enjoyable to play. The graphics are solid, the background music is cool, and the gameplay feels nice if you enjoy chasing bonuses to score big wins.
