The wild symbol is the erupting volcano and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will substitute for all of the other symbols to create winning combinations.

Erupting Wild and Scatter

The eruption bonus feature is activated when 3 erupting volcano symbols appear on the reels.  These volcanoes erupt and will cover the whole reel with wild symbols.  Players will receive 5 respins while the middle reel remains in place.  As the volcano erupts it sends wild symbols across the reels.

The erupting volcano is also the scatter symbol and 3 of these appearing on the reels will activate the Eruption feature.  Players will be given 5 respins and reel 3 will become an expanding wild.  Some symbols will also be turned into wild symbols during the respins round. All wins will payout from left to right except for the scatter volcano that pays out any way.

Take a Chance and Gamble

Hot Hot Volcano has a Gamble feature, which can be activated when players have a winning combination.  By pressing the Gamble button players are taken to a different screen and will have to guess the colour or suit of the playing card correctly.  If players are able to guess the colour all wins will be doubled and for guessing the correct suit all wins will be quadrupled.  It is important to note that if players guess incorrectly they will lose any wins won during this feature.  The Gamble feature can be played up to a maximum of 5 times.  Players will not be able to gamble with their jackpot winnings.
