A simple game with some exotic reels, Volcano Eruption mobile slot has one big feature that brings the reels alive.
Fans of NextGen Gaming may recognise this as the identical copy of Hot Hot Volcano slot. That’s because it is. They’ve simply updated the name and graphics (for reasons unknown) and hoped no one would notice.
But that’s ok. It gave us a chance to re-play a game we hadn’t looked at for a while. And what we found surprised us.
Taking up more of the screen, we were able to appreciate the smaller details of the design. Like how the dormant volcano at the back of the screen erupts into a frenzy of fire and brimstone during the free spins.
Even the symbols themselves have something exotic about them, which games like Rooks Revenge or Zuma don’t quite capture as well.
We are not saying it’s the most exciting theme we’ve ever seen. But if you want to escape to a volcanic island that feels like it could belong somewhere in the land before time, then this Volcano Eruption slot game is perfect for you.
Though granted, that’s a very specific need you’ve got there.
There isn’t much to this slot machine. Possibly why it’s popular with beginners to the game.
During the base game you have wilds to help keep your balance topped up. And that’s pretty much it.
Then you get to the free spins, and things heat up dramatically. The volcano erupts, turning the center reel wild and shooting out extra wilds during those five free spins.
It’s not much, and sometimes it feels like it’s not enough, but this is on the lower end of the variance scale. Yet every once in a while it has an eruption that gives you 70x to 100x your bet and you’ll be begging to head to this fiery island again.
We are not saying the Volcano Eruption video slot is anything extra-ordinary. But it’s entertaining enough. Walk away when you’re about 20% up on your budget, and head to another Super Safari slot that’s a little higher up the pay scale.

Wilds: The volcano is the wild symbol, and appears on reels 2, 3 & 4 only. Substitutes for all other symbols on the reels.
5 Wild Free Spins: Get the volcano eruption wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time and you'll get 5 free spins. Here reel 3 becomes an expanded wild of burning volcano action.
During these spins you'll get wilds as usual, and every once in a while an extra wild as the volcano spurns out a chunk of hot rock on the reels and turns an extra symbol wild.
It's where you'll get the five of a kind symbol wins.
It had been ages since we re-visited the old Volcano Eruption mobile slot, and now it's been re-vamped... we suspect it will probably still sit in the back burner of games we mean to play, but somehow never catches our attention.
However, beginners to slot machines should try this little fiery beauty when they want to start moving from simpler 5 reelers to more advanced features. It's still simple, but has some great hitting free spins that can be very rewarding indeed.
One of the classic NextGen Gaming slots.
