New Stakelogic Online Slot Game: Volcano Deluxe
Just last month, Stakelogic released its Runner Runner Megaways online video slot for Aussie online casinos. Its fun features and 117,649 ways to win have already proven very popular with players.
The latest video slot from Stakelogic is quite different from many others in the developer’s library. Volcano Deluxe offers unique features like Super Wilds and a randomly-erupting volcano. With its release on August 20, it is ready for mobile players as well as those on computers and laptops.
A New Take on the Summer Theme
The summer months can be relaxing but never so much as when spent on an island paradise. The crystal-blue water, sandy beaches, and green palm trees provide a setting ideal for any getaway.
Volcano Deluxe provides that scenario but with a volcano right in the middle of it. The smiling volcano may be bubbling with hot lava prepared to spew from the top of it, but that volcano contains lucrative payouts.
The music in Volcano Deluxe doesn’t overwhelm but does offer an island feel when the reels are spinning. And the volcano interrupts by vocalizing a “BOOM!” when the player hits certain Wilds.
Stakelogic CEO Stephan van den Oetelaar noted that this new game combines a striking design with engaging gameplay in one of the studio’s “most fun and entertaining” games thus far. “The team has done an incredible job on the math and mechanics of Volcano Deluxe, providing anticipation and thrills in equal measure,” he said. “The volcano can erupt with every spin, and when it does, players are awarded with a range of features that can turn their wins from hot to fiery.”
Volcano Deluxe Overview & Payouts
This five-reel game has four rows and 20 paylines. The theoretical RTP (return-to-player) is 96%.
Betting starts as low as $0.20 per spin, then increasing to $0.40 and $1, $2, $4, $10, $20, and $40, with the maximum bet set at $100 per spin. This provides a wide range of options for players. And the maximum win on the game is $42,000.
When playing at the minimum bet of $0.20, these are the payouts for each symbol when five hit on a single payline:
- Wild = $5.00
- Volcano = $5.00
- Woman = $2.00
- Parrot = $1.20
- Coconuts = $0.80
- Tribal mask = $0.80
- Bongo drums = $0.80
- A or K = $0.40 each
- Q or J = $0.20 each
The Wild symbol can substitute for any symbol except the bonus.
Volcano Deluxe Gameplay & Features
One of the main features in Volcano Deluxe is the bonus round. In order to get there, the player must hit three bonus symbols on the reels. They only appear on the first, third, and fifth reels. These trigger Free Spins, and a player can win from eight spins up to 20 spins, in addition to a random bonus win.
During the Free Spins round, players will find new Volcano features, Random Wilds, and Super Wilds.
As players spin in regular gameplay and otherwise, the smiling volcano can erupt and shoot one or more boulders toward the reels. It will land and reveal the feature.
If a beach setting with a question mark over it shows up on the reels, it indicates one of two features.
- The Cash Prize symbol explodes into a panel that reveals a random cash prize.
- The Volcano Spins symbol explodes into a panel that reveals a random number of free spins, of which four up to 15 are possible.
The Random Wild is a wild symbol that lands on any position and remains there while the other spots on the grid spin.
A Super Wild is a wild that lands atop a reel and fills that entire reel with wilds.
Gamble or Collect?
Most Aussie online casinos offer an extra option with this Stakelogic game.
After every winning line on Volcano Deluxe, the Gamble Feature pops up on the screen to give the player two choices: collect or gamble.
The player can collect the win with no strings attached. The game pays the win and resumes play.
Or the player can gamble, which brings up an option to choose a red or black card. If the card matches the player’s guess, the winnings from that spin double. If not, however, the player loses the entire win. The player can also choose a card suit: diamond, heart, club, or spade. Picking the right one quadruples the win, but losing gives up all of the winnings from that spin.
Players can continue to gamble until they lose their winnings or until he or she hits the maximum number of gamble opportunities.
Where to Play Volcano Deluxe
