Hot Hot Volcano Slots

Hot-Hot-VolcanoHot Hot Volcano takes its players to an island that is in danger because of a volcano eruption. The slot was created by NextGen Gaming and it offers fire and island life themed images, both on its reels and outside them. The design is one of the strong points of the game, though the features should prove quite interesting as well.

Players that spin the 5 reels of Hot Hot Volcano also get a chance to bet on up to 25 lines. The Eruption feature with its respins and wilds is the main attraction point here, and the same symbol that triggers it is also the scatter. The $1,000 top jackpot it offers is the part I’m the least happy about.

Features of Hot Hot Volcano

If you want to know about the features of Hot Hot Volcano, I’ll mention the wild symbols which are part of it, along with the scatters or the Eruption bonus feature which has respins in it.

First, let’s talk about the wild symbol, the one which has the image of a Volcano on it. This symbol is capable of helping out as you play, as long as it manages to land in the spot where you need it. If it appears on a line where a couple of matching icons are also present, it takes the same role as them and helps with the formation of a combo. However, you can only get the wild Volcano on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. From there, it can substitute for any other symbol, no exceptions.

The same wild is used as a scatter, so depending on how many of them you get you also trigger the extra feature. You can get paid 2x the bet if you have two wilds, or 5x for three.

Eruption Feature

The Eruption bonus game needs you to land all three wild symbols on the reels, at the same time. When this happens, the one from the 3rd reel will erupt and will cover the entire reel.


Next, you get 5 respins for free, during which the 3rd reel is held and the other four reels spin. The Volcano will erupt and send wilds to the rest of the reels.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting range in Hot Hot Volcano starts at $0.01 and reaches a maximum of $50. It gets there by covering 25 lines with 25 coins, and using the maximum denomination of $2.

As for the prizes that the game gives away, 500 coins is the value of the biggest one, meaning up to $1,000.

Design and symbols

The action takes place in the jungle, but you can see the erupting volcano nearby, so it doesn’t look like a safe place to be. There are various monkeys, lizards and birds among the symbols, all inhabitants of the nearby region. The quality of the design is quite good, at least I enjoyed playing the game in part thanks to them. The poker cards look like they’re made out of colored stone or wood, and they are all on fire.


Symbols: Volcano (wild/scatter, 5x the bet), Lizard (500 coins), Parrot (250 coins), Monkey (200 coins), Fruits (200 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins), Queen (125 coins), Jack (125 coins), Ten (100 coins) and Nine (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

While the graphics are fun to look at, the features are not impressive and the prizes are even worse. I wouldn’t really recommend it, not over one of the many other slots with much better payouts.

This Hot Hot Volcano slot is offered by all online casinos with NextGen software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
