How Lava Gold works
After a journey through time of several tens of millions of years, you are back in the age of the dinosaurs! A dense forest, dinos and a volcano ready to spit its lava at any moment, the environment is slightly hostile.
Lava Gold is a slot machine developed by online gaming provider Betsoft. It has been available at most online casinos since May 2021. Its payout rate to the player is quite high with 96%, but its volatility is very low and its winning potential reaches the astronomical value of... 120 times the initial stake. Indeed, Lava Gold will most certainly not hit the jackpot, but you can still have a good time on this very well made game. The objective in Lava Gold is to make connections in the form of clusters in a grid consisting of 5 reels of 5 symbols. The symbols used in the paying connections fade away before being replaced to eventually continue on to new connections. Unlike most slot machines that use the cluster system, there is no cascade effect in Lava Gold. Here, when pay symbols are removed they will be randomly replaced by adjacent symbols still present on the grid. This system facilitates the linking of connections and can allow the number of symbols on the grid to be reduced until the grid is completely filled with a single symbol.
Lava Gold's different symbols
In addition to the volcano wild, there are 10 symbols in Lava Gold. They are divided into two categories:
The high value symbols are represented by a plant, an egg, a pterodactyl and the T-rex, they pay between x3.2 and x12 for a maximum cluster of 25 identical symbols;
Low value symbols are more common, they are represented by the high values of a pack of cards (10-J-Q-K-A), they pay between x1.2 and x2.2 for a maximum cluster of 25 identical symbols.
The different connections in Lava Gold
Many connections are possible in Lava Gold. There are no predefined paylines in this slot. The connection system used is the cluster system: you need to get at least 5 identical symbols in the same group in contact. Symbols in a payline are removed and randomly replaced by symbols around the spaces left. The process repeats until there are no more connections available or the entire grid is filled with the same symbol.
How the Lava Gold bonus works
On the side of the grid you will find a counter that fills up with lava as connections are made on different pay spins. When this meter is completely filled, you will get the Lava Gold bonus and its 10 free spins. To do this, you will need to make a connection with all the symbols in the slot. An order has been set up from the lowest value symbol to the rarest symbol and clearing each step will be necessary to progress in filling the lava meter.
During each free spin, a symbol will be randomly selected to fill the entire 3rd reel, guaranteeing at least one connection. Symbols used in a paid connection will not be removed during the bonus and therefore it will not be possible to chain multiple connections. However, a multiplier appears and increases with each free spin. On the 10th free spin, the multiplier will be x10 allowing you to multiply an incredible 12 times your bet if you are lucky enough to find a screen full of T-rex, which is an exorbitant total of 120 times your stake. There is effectively no re-trigger or other feature to hope to increase this paltry payout.
