Volcano Eruption Review

Volcano Eruption is a match 3-style instant lottery game. You need to match three symbols on a 3 x 3 game board to win a prize. The largest prize is $50,000.

The game layout is straightforward. On the left of the screen are the game board and the available prizes. On the right are a bet slider and PLAY button. At the bottom is the amount won per round and your account balance.

Game symbols are big and colorful but have slightly awkward detail.

How to play Volcano Eruption

You start the game by placing your bet. To select your wager amount, click and drag the slider beneath the BET slider on the right side of the screen. When it displays your desired bet amount, click the ‘play’ symbol below your bet.

The game board generates hidden symbols on the left side. Reveal them either by clicking on each square individually or clicking the ‘star’ symbol that appears in place of the ‘Play’ symbol.

There are eight symbols in total. If three of the same symbol appear on the board, you win. Seven of the symbols award a prize equal to a corresponding multiple of your bet:

  • Flowers: x1
  • Butterfly: x2
  • Oranges: x5
  • Frog: x10
  • Monkey: x50
  • Toucan: x100
  • Dinosaur: x1,000

There is also a volcano symbol. If three of it appears on your board, the bonus mini-game is triggered.

How to play the Bonus mini-game

The Bonus mini-game is played on the same 3 x3  game board but features an additional flame symbol. When the mini-game is triggered, you’ll see new multiplier options assigned to ‘flame’ quantities.

Symbols are hidden behind the board and you can’t reveal each one individually; you must reveal all nine spaces simultaneously by pressing the ‘star’ button on the right side of the screen.

If three or more flame symbols are revealed, you win. The prize is the amount of your bet multiplied by the number of flame symbols on the game board.

Auto-Play feature

To turn auto-play on, select the gear symbol on the right side of the screen. A new screen opens. Click the slider and drag it right to choose the number of auto-plays and then click the play symbol in the upper right corner.

You return to the main game screen. Select a wager amount and click the play button to begin auto-playing. Every round on auto-play will wager the amount you set. You can only change the bet size if you stop auto-play by clicking the stop button.

If you win a prize requiring tax withholding, auto-play stops automatically.
