Graphics and Visuals
Open the game and you will find yourself on a tropical island with lush greenery and blue skies. Mazuma, the animated volcano, sits on the left ready to erupt at any time during the gameplay. Palm tree fronds cover the top and bottom rows, that can be unlocked via the slot features. A Hawaiian acoustic piece played on a ukulele spreads the good vibes for your slotting session.
The entire pay symbol set is held in warm colours, starting with the card royals from J to A at the low end. Five across the reels are worth 0.5x to 1.25x your bet. Oranges, kiwis, bananas and coconuts can be found at the high level with pays for a 5OAK increasing to 1.5 to 25x your bet.
The wild symbol is the top-paying symbol with 50x your bet when five land across the reels. Very fittingly, scatters are a cocktail glass filled with a mouth-watering drink. They can appear on all reels and will trigger two of the features on the Mount Mazuma slot.
The Super-Ways Feature
Get ready for a flurry of base game features that starts with the Super-Ways modifier. The volcano might awake at the start of any spin and erupt with hot lava falling on to the reels. Any randomly hit symbol expect scatters will be split into two, creating more ways to win. The symbols will always split into matching symbols. This can lead to up to 7,776 ways to win in the base game without any uncovered reel positions. The game window will return to the default size at the end of a spin.
The Symbol Unlock Feature
The second feature can unlock additional symbol positions. The game window has in the default mode two rows that are covered with fronds. Any scatter landing in the base game or free spins will have Mazuma uncover one random reel position for each scatter, providing extra potential to land a winning combo. It will reset to the default only in the base game, while during the free spins the positions remain uncovered until the end of the bonus round.
Random Extra Wilds
Last but not least, the game trigger randomly to add extra wilds. This can happen at the start of a spin, after the super-way feature or at the end of a spin. Two extra wilds will be randomly placed on the game grid. They will turn into split wilds should when a split symbol is selected.
The Mount Mazuma Free Spins Feature
Prepare for the main eruption on Mount Mazuma when you land three or more scatters in a spin. You will be awarded 10 free spins which cannot be retriggered, plus a coin win between 2x and 10 your bet for three to five scatters.
At the start of the free spins, Mazuma will randomly select a number of covered positions equal to the number of triggering scatters. They will remain uncovered for the duration of the feature, giving you a minimum of 540 ways to win with three scatters and more with four or five scatters. Any scatter landing during the bonus round will remove more fronds that will further increase the minimum ways.
Want more? Sure, why not. The random Extra Wilds and Super-Way features can trigger at any time. And that is still not the end as the game comes with a type of feature guarantee. The Extra Chance will trigger when your total win from the bonus round is lower than five times your stake, excluding any wins from the triggering spin.
This is the moment where all goes wild on the reels. First, Mazum will uncover all locked positions, then he will erupt to trigger the Super-Ways feature and in the last step, he will add the Extra Wilds modifier. As you can see in the screenshot below, with the help of the Extra Chance we turned a win of less than 5x bet into a mega win of 129x our stake.
Is this a hilariously funny slot or what? Habanero has done a superb job in creating a high-volatility game you might even like losing on as the gameplay is so entertaining. Enduring the mandatory dry spells that are common in such slots is more bearable as on other slots, especially because Mount Mazuma can fire up on any spin in the main game and bonus round. The maximum win potential in the bonus is somewhere north of 5,000 times the bet, well sufficient for any slotting fan.
