Volatile Slot (Golden Rock Studios) Slot Review
Gameplay and Atmosphere
The scene is set somewhere off the coast of a tropical island, and judging by the smoking volcano that dominates the backdrop I’m going to guess somewhere in the Pacific. I think the volcano is meant to symbolize volatility, keeping players on edge waiting for an eruption. The imagery is completed by golden shores, sparkling blue water and lush foliage.
I was instantly taken by the fun tribal music that accompanies this slot, and I was more than happy to let it play out in the background. Unfortunately, the escalating tempo of the beating drums was just about the most exciting thing about Volatile Slot’s theme. The rest of the design was unfortunately rather uninspiring, with the designers leaning way to heavily on very basic looking A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols.
The reels are held together within a grid that’s framed by trees, their vines twisting around the border. As we already touched upon, the symbols are a bit disappointing, and apart from the standard Royals there are a few congas, fire pits, a timber shrine, and an island girl. The Wild (which is also the Scatter) is a miniature of the active volcano in the background, and appears on only reels 2, 3, and 4.
