The mad dash to end the year on a high note has led to numerous game releases. The biggest gaming software developers are trying to beat the clock with one or two more hot releases in 2019. Microgaming is one of the biggest players and it might have just topped the list. Its latest release, entitled Volatile Slot, is about as hot as it gets.
The theme centers on a volcano that is ready to blow. This new title is part of an exclusive content deal with Golden Rock Studios. The game was recently profiled on the company website.
Golden Rock Studio was founded by gaming industry veterans James Curwen as the CEO and Will Mathieson as the CPO. This game development studio is based in the United Kingdom. Its content will be distributed exclusively through Microgaming’s award-winning platform.
This is the studio’s first effort through the collaboration with Microgaming. Volatile Slot is an ambitious five-by-three reel online slot with 10 paylines. It plays left to right with several attractive gameplay features. There are two different game modes and a free spin bonus.
The volcanic eruption can yield both Volcanic Wilds and Exploding Wilds. These can trigger multipliers as well as the free spins feature. Volcanic Wilds can surface on reels two, three and four. They fill in as substitutes for any other symbol.
Volcanic Wilds also have the ability to change into Exploding Wilds. This will reveal a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x. If more than one Exploding Wild lands, these multipliers can expand. For example, three Exploding Wilds results in the maximum multiplier of 64x on total wins.
The frenzied free spin feature can award a minimum of 10 free spins when triggered. This also triggers enhanced reel sets with additional Volcanic Wilds and Exploding Wilds.
“With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content. 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.”
“We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months. Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience. And it is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot 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!”
Microgaming was founded in 1994 as the first true online casino software company. It was also first to market in 2004 with the first casino software designed for a mobile application.
