Brace for an encounter with the red-haired Volcano Queen on the Diamond Spins slot from IGT. The fiery warrior overlooks her kingdom from a fortified castle on a mountain ridge and you better stay on the good side of her. In turn, she will reward you with wild substitutions, respins and multipliers up to x5 as well as free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 250 times your bet on a single spin. And not to forget, the Diamond Spins bonus game where big bet multipliers and three progressive jackpots are up for grabs.
Volcano Queen Diamond Spins is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right. Your encounter with the fiery queen on desktop or mobile starts at 0.20 credits and peaks at 9 credits per spin. The game has medium variance with a base RTP of 95.62%. Including the jackpots, that will rise to 96.22%. .
Launching the game will take you straight to the castle on the mountain ridge overlooking the fire-blazing valley and the erupting volcano in the background. The queen stands on the left of the game window readying her arrows to shoot her arrows at the reels. The displays for the three progressive jackpots are placed on top of the ornamented game window which is mainly populated by coloured gems. An epic soundtrack rounds off the slot design.
All pay symbols including scatters can appear fully stacked at all times. They start at the low end with the card royals from J to A, awarding 0.5x to 1x your bet for a single five of a kind. At the high level are purple, green, blue and red gems as well as the Queen herself. Hit five on a line to win 1.2x to 2.5x your stake.
An intricate icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to five only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. An artistic star icon acts as the scatter while shiny Diamond overlays appear as bonus symbols.
Just like all other games in the Diamond Spins series, there is plenty of action on the reels but little win potential in the main game. The focus is clearly on the three progressive jackpots and the reminder feels more like a pretty garnish around it.
The suspense level might rise when you land three adjacent stacks of matching high-value symbols to trigger the Volcan Queen Respins. The stacks are locked in place as a jumbo symbol and up to two respins awarded to potentially land more matching symbols and increase your win. Payouts are evaluated after every respin. Only high-value symbols are on the reels during the respins, plus, a random win multiplier between x2 and x5 will be awarded.
Hitting six or more star scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 free spins which can be retriggered for up to 120 free spins in total. Plus, you will be awarded a coin win between 10x and 250x your total bet based on how many scatters landed. There are no additional modifiers or extras available in the feature, which is rather disappointing. However, the respins feature can occur.
Get for the main event, the Diamond Spins bonus game where three progressive jackpots – Minor, Major and Grand – are up for grabs. Shiny diamonds can randomly appear on the reels as an overlay to the pay symbols. Having five in view will trigger the bonus game with initially three respins and the triggering diamonds locked in place. The respin counter will reset to three every time an additional diamond lands. The feature ends once you run out of respins or the screen is filled with diamonds.
Each diamond will reveal a coin win of 3x to 10x your total bet, plus, you can have special diamonds landing during the respins that will award extra prizes.
Well, is it worth going on a quest to find the Volcan Queen, regardless of the dangers and perils that surround her? Most definitely not, if you look for mega wins from the main game but surely yes if you like chasing progressive jackpots. They are all unlimited and will reach six and even 7-figure sums before they are triggered.
