Lava Gold Bitcoin Slot Review
About 200 million years ago, the earth was shaped by volcanic activity, creating the right conditions for the advent of dinosaurs. Inspired by prehistory, Betsoft created Lava Gold, the 5×5 (reels x rows) and 5+ cluster pays slot with maximum payouts of 159x bet per round. Highlights of this May 2021 game include volcanic wilds and free spins with multipliers and stacked middle reel.
Lava Gold takes place hundreds of millions of years ago, with prehistoric vegetation and exploding volcanoes all around the translucent grid. The artwork is colourful, and the animation (including flying pterodactyls and plumes of volcanic ash spewing into the air) adds to the atmosphere. Top-paying symbols include a tyrannosaurus, pterodactyl, dinosaur foot, a dinosaur egg and a prehistoric flower. Resembling a molten rock consistency, the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols are the least-paying symbols. The heavy drum beats of the soundtrack reinforce the primal nature of the slot.
The RTP of 95.99% is ballpark around what we expect from a Betsoft slot. Furthermore, the bet range of 0.25 to 100 is excellent for conservative players and high rollers. Fans of Betsoft may also want to try Primal Hunt or Back to Venus.
Rather than use paylines, Lava Gold wins are created by clusters of identical symbols horizontally or vertically adjacent. Winning clusters are removed, and adjacent symbols can grow on them for the possibility of additional winning combinations. The feature repeats until no new winning clusters are created or the grid contains only one symbol.
Special volcano symbols can help create winning clusters by acting as wilds that substitute for other symbols.
Next, free spins are unlocked after collecting a cluster win in order of lowest to highest of each symbol. Your progress is recorded in a lava meter, and when full unlocks 10 free spins. For this feature, the centre reel is stacked with an identical symbol to guarantee a win. However, symbols do not grow into empty spaces. Another feature enhancement is a growing win multiplier increasing in increments of 1x on each round up to 10x.
Lava Gold Bitcoin slot is optimised for desktop and mobile (iOS/Android), allowing you to play just about anywhere.
