This is a story from a mythological time, a time where the Gods walked the earth. This epic theme is set deep down inside the ground well below the vulcan Mount Etna, where hot lava flows and loud heavy metal music rings out, welcoming you to The Hammer of Vulcan!
Hammer of Vulcan has some intriguing mechanics as far as the gameplay is concerned. The symbols drop down into the grid onto an anvil, also there is a slight tilt in the way that the reels are displayed.
Instead of the regular paylines that players are used to, this game has 4096 different ways that one can win. It takes a minimum of three neighboring matching symbols on the reels to win a payout.
Hammer of the Vulcan has symbols that look as if they come from the mythological age. There is the Shield, Swords, Pair of Tongs, and Helmet symbols, as well as a Gold Golem, Chalice, and the Vulcan’s Hammer. There are also high card symbols, with the 10-Ace that pay out the lower rewards.
From 4.5x to 12x your bet can be awarded for the picture symbols if you land 5 matches with the Golem Gold, which is the best payout in the game. The Hammer Wild is the best symbol in the game, with this you can activate the Free Spins bonus. Gold Golem symbols and Wild symbols pay the same.
This feature is activated when the wild symbols appear on the reels. All the symbols below the wild are changed into a wild symbol.
Landing three Volcano Scatter symbol activates this feature. You will then be given a number of Free Spins. The number of Free Spins you receive is determined by the amount of Scatters you have landed. 10, 12, 15, and 20 Free Spins are available.
The Strike Again feature is activated if you don’t have any wins during the Free Spin round. This feature will give you another spin for free. You will keep receiving a free spin until such time that you land a winning combination.
The Bonus Buy feature allows you to go straight into the Free Spins feature but at a cost. This cost is 80x your bet. Once activated, on your next spin you will be given three to six Scatters. This will then activate the Free Spin feature
Hammer of the Vulcan is an exciting game to play. Having high volatility will mean wins are not going to happen as often, but once wins do begin, they can be quite profitable. It has a decent variety of special features, and the max win of 20,000x is definitely worth chasing after.
