Excitement Erupts in Volatile Slot
Golden Rock Studios
might not be a name that you’ve heard of until now, but you are certain to hear it a lot more over the coming months and years, and that’s because the UK-based game development company has entered into an agreement to provide a series of exclusive games to Microgaming
. There are already more than fifteen games slated for release, and the first of these is Volatile Slot
. This is a high volatility game that takes place right in front of a huge volcano which is poised to erupt at any moment.
Behold the Volcano!
Volatility Slot is a five-reel game with three rows and ten pay lines
. The reels are completely transparent, and that allows you to have a fairly unobstructed view of the background, which shows a volcano which has the habit of erupting from time to time. Your view of the volcano is from what appears to be a nearby tropical island, so you will see palm trees and other details in the foreground and to either side of the reels.
This background doesn’t just look good as a static scene, but will become animated from time to time as you play the game. Not only that, but the screen will appear to shake, and you will hear a realistic rumbling sound whenever the volcano is about to erupt, giving you an enjoyably immersive experience.
The symbols appearing on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a tribal drum, a fire, an islander, a volcanic wild, an exploding wild, three different multipliers
(x2, x3 and x4) and more. All of these symbols have a simple and clear design, and several of them will be animated from time to time. As far as audio is concerned, the soundtrack of this game has a rhythmic tribal beat which suits the setting perfectly, and realistic sound effects add even more life to the gaming session.
Volcanic and Exploding Wilds
Volcanic wilds can only be found on the second, third and fourth reels, but when they show up they have the potential to turn into exploding wilds
. The transformation of a volcanic wild into an exploding one is a random event, so you never know when it will happen, which is fairly realistic when you think about it. When it does happen, the volcano on the symbol will erupt and the lava which proceeds from it will show a multiplier value of x2, x3 or x4. Should you get more than one exploding wild, their values will be multiplied together, so a maximum multiplier of x64 can be had by getting three x4 values.
Volatile Slot Free Spins
A Volatile Slot Free Spins feature is triggered by getting three wilds on the reels at the same time
. You will be awarded ten free spins, and all of these will be taken on reels which are packed with extra wild symbols, making things even more exciting. The background here will have an ominous orange hue and the main volcano will erupt as wilds explode and help you win. Get three more wilds on the reels at the same time and even more free spins can be triggered.
An Impressive Debut Title
‘With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content,’ said Jean-Luc Ferriere, who is Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming. ‘Volatile Slot is an impressive debut title and is now available across Microgaming’s entire customer base following a two-week period of exclusivity with LeoVegas.’
James Curwen, who is CEO at Golden Rock Studios, was similarly pleased with the new title. ‘We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months,’ he said. ‘Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience and is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot is by its very nature, volatile, and if the volcano erupts, the level of extremity is taken to a whole new level for the player, with the maximum win at a 25,600 times stake!’
Volatile Slot is a straightforward and enjoyable game which can be played at LeoVegas Casino
and other venues that offer Microgaming titles.
