Volcano Eruption Slots

Volcano-EruptionVolcano Eruption is a NextGen Gaming title which seems very similar to another title of theirs, called Hot Hot Volcano. They used about the same graphics and features in Volcano Eruption, so just like before we have here a game themed around a small island where a volcano is erupting, threatening all the creatures that live in the jungle around it. It’s a good looking game, and I’m sure you will enjoy it if that’s what you’re looking for in a slot. Keep reading to find out what the features can give you.

25 paylines are spread on the 5 reels of Volcano Eruption. The Eruption feature with its respins and expanding wilds is an important part of it, but so is the wild/scatter mixed symbol. You can only win up to $1,000 from it.

Features of Volcano Eruption

A single symbol with extra abilities exists in Volcano Eruption, but it’s the kind that can act both as a scatter symbol and as a wild, being the trigger for re-spins in certain situations.


The symbol in question has the Erupting Volcano on it, being an easily recognizable image. It will appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4 and from whatever position it is in it will try and act as a wild, assisting you with the formation of new combinations if the other symbols are in place already. All other symbols can be replaced with wilds, no exceptions.

The Volcano is also used as a scatter icon, so whenever you have two or three of them present at the same time you will get a small prize. 2x the bet is offered for two symbols, while 5x is for three.

Eruption Feature

The slot’s only bonus game needs 3 Volcanos present on the reels. At that point, the 3rd reel will have its volcano erupt, which will turn the entire reel into a wild. 5 re-spins are played after that, with the 3rd wild reel remaining in place, while the other four are spinning. The Volcano reel will erupt and will send extra wilds on the other reels.


Betting options and jackpots

In order to activate all the lines, you need to wager just as many coins, which means 25. Your coins will have a value between $0.01 and $2, but that is your decision. You may spend up to $50 each round.

With 500 coins being offered by the best combo of symbols, you can win up to $1,000 in this game.

Design and symbols

The volcano is visible if you look at the image, being behind the reels, which are transparent. The jungle is closer to you, the place where all those small animals and birds are living. It’s a painting like quality that you see when you look at the background image, but the symbols look more realistic. There are stone made poker letters which are on fire, plus images of the birds, mammals and reptiles that live in the surrounding jungle.


Symbols: Volcano (wild/scatter, 5x the bet), Lizard (500 coins), Bird (250 coins), Small Monkey (200 coins), Fruit (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?

The respins feature with its expanding wild is the only truly great thing about this slot. It’s quite average in every other way and the prize is very low. I would say you should pass on it.

The Volcano Eruption slot machine is offered through the NextGen platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
