- A new volcano-themed slot from Playtech Origins
- Earn respins with extra wild symbols
- Free spins bonus guarantees 5 wilds on each spin
Wild Lava slot from Playtech Origins is the latest in what appears to be a growing trend of volcano-themed slots. I have to say it works pretty well when tied in with eruptions and that sort of thing, and it’s a welcome change to the over-used themes like Aztecs, for example.
There are 5 reels here and 5 rows to give you 40 paylines, and you need to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack, Queen, King or Ace
There are 2 other symbols in this game of note. One is the wild symbol which can land on the reels during eruptions. It substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter symbol. Then there’s the scatter itself, appearing only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and it’s used to trigger the free spins bonus.

Wild Lava Slot Bonuses and Features
Wild Eruptions Respin Feature. During the base game, wild symbols are collected. At random, the resin feature is triggered and the volcano erupts, spewing out all stored wild symbols for a respin.
Lava Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you need to land 3 scatter symbols at the same time, giving you 5 free spins. Before it starts, the volcano erupts, spreading all wild symbols that were stored onto the reels which will remain sticky throughout the bonus. However, they do move positions with each spin and you are guaranteed at least 5 of them so don’t worry if you haven’t collected many, although more is obviously better. You can retrigger the bonus with another 3 scatter symbols.
Wild Lava slot from Playtech Origins has a cool design with features that work well with it, although I can’t help but notice the strong similarities between this slot and the recently reviewed Volcano Deluxe from Stakelogic, along with other slots with a similar theme like Gold Volcano. That aside, there are 2 features here. One is during the base game where extra wilds are added to random positions every once in a while, and the other is the free spins bonus which gives quite a few wilds on every spin. Neither are particularly impressive I have to say, and with a maximum win potential of just 400x your stake, there’s not a huge amount to look forward to. It is a fairly low-variance game, but I just don’t think it offers enough to be competitive and there are better choices out there.
