Hammer of Vulcan Slot Free Play
How To Play It
Betting options don’t change much from one Quickspin game to the next. A list opens up when you select the Total Bet, and the range there is between $0.10 and $100.
In exchange for whatever wager you go with, you get 4096 ways to win on 6×4 reels. Having 3 or more symbols of the same type, appearing on consecutive reels from left to right, will get you paid.
One of the game’s top symbols, the Wild is the one with the W logo on a golden background. It will form combinations directly, with 12x the stake being the best prize it can offer. Otherwise, you will use it as a substitute, and you can form regular combinations with its help.
There is also a Hammer Wild symbol, which upon appearing will transform themselves and any symbols found underneath them, into regular wilds. The name of the feature is Hammer Strike.
A Bonus Volcano symbol can also make a big impression, but first you need it appearing 3 to 6 times. Anywhere between 10 and 20 free spins trigger as a result, in a bonus feature called Light The Forge. The other way to get this feature, is by paying for the privilege, and the cost is 80x the stake.
As you go through the free spins, the game uses Hammer Wilds to give multipliers a 1x boost, in addition to its usual wild transformation role.
Should the last free spin be without wins, the game gives you one extra round to go through, and this goes on until you finish with a winning spin.
Additional free spins can also be obtained via Volcano scatters landing on the reels, where 1 to 4 symbols of this type will add 1 to 6 extra rounds.
I like quite a few things about Hammer of Vulcan and what it has to offer, but its top jackpot is my favorite by far. With potential rewards of up to 20,347x the stake, the game can be incredibly generous, to those very few lucky players that will get close to that jackpot.
Otherwise, the game has high volatility, and the RTP is 95.81%, so clearly they could’ve done better there.
Hammer of Vulcan looks like loads of fun, but it can be punishing at times, same as every other volatile game. It’s a risk that plenty of players will take, if they get a small chance at prizes of over 20,000x the stake.
