Red Hot Volcano, the Online Pokie With No Volcanos!

Red Hot Volcano is an online poker machine from Booming Games available for Australians to play at some of our leading partners.

Booming Games has created some fun online pokies over the years but Red Hot Volcano has us scratching our heads. Firing up Red Hot Volcano at an Australian online casino greets you with a Tarzan and Jane-themed machine, with very little to do with volcanos. It is a bizarre concept but does it detract away from the game? Let us find out.

Red Hot Volcano Fundamentals

You are forgiven for thinking Red Hot Volcano is a poker machine about volcanos but it is not. Booming Games decided to make the game about Tarzan and Jane without actually mentioning those names. However, there is a volcano drawn in the background of the base game. A pokie version of Dante’s Peak this game is not.

Red Hot Volcano plays on a 5×3 layout with 20 win lines. Those wins came with a high variance model and a below-average RTP of 95.71%. It beggars belief why developers do not have an RTP of at least 96%.

The game is suitable for all bankrolls because it has a wide range of bet amounts. They start as low as $0.20 and increase up to $40. A maximum win of 10,000x equates to $2,000 and $400,000. They are prizes worth winning.

What Are the Red Hot Volcano Symbols

Ten paying symbols adorn the Red Hot Volcano base game. There is a paying wild symbol in addition to these ten.

Royals, tens through aces make up the lowest-value symbols. Matching three to five pays between 0.25x and 2.00x.

A monkey, turtle, and flamingo make up the mid-value symbols, which have nothing to do with volcanic activity! They pay up to 5.00x for landing five of the same on a win line. Tarzan and Jane are the game’s high-value symbols. Tarzan pays 1.00x, 5.00x, or 15.00x for matching three, four, or five symbols.

The Wild symbol, which substitutes for all paying tables, also pays out. Indeed, it is the most valuable symbol on the game, paying up to 50x if you land five on the board.

The volcano scatters start the free spins round when three or more land on the base game.

Symbol Three Four Five
Wilds 2.25x 15.00x 50.00x
Tarzan 1.00x 5.00x 15.00x
Jane 0.75x 2.50x 10.00x
Flamingo 0.50x 1.50x 5.00x
Turtle 0.50x 1.25x 4.00x
Monkey 0.50x 1.00x 3.00x
Aces and Kings 0.25x 0.75x 2.00x
Queens, Jacks, Tens 0.25x 0.50x 1.25x

What Are The Game’s Bonuses and Features

Red Hot Volcano comes with two distinct features. The first happens in the base game. Fireball symbols randomly appear and fill a meter running at the top of the screen. Each row has two spaces for fireballs. Fill them and receive a wild reel for the next two spins.

Landing three volcano scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 starts the 10 Fiery Free Spins feature. In addition to 10 free spins, you can retrigger the feature the same way as you started it.

There is a win multiplier during the free spins round. It starts at x1 and increases by +2 for each wild reel. This means you can have a multiplier of up to x10, leading to major wins.


Red Hot Volcano would be better called and probably be played more if it called itself something to do with Tarzan rather than pretending it was about volcanos. Only Booming Games know why it went down this strange route.

The game itself is decent without being spectacular but is decent enough to keep you playing? Probably not. Everything except the maximum payout is bang average. That averageness may deter people from chasing that massive 10,000x big win.
