Watch out for the volcanic Mount Mazuma which watches over your tropical idyll. With a high RTP and higher volatility, this game has the potential to really erupt.
Mount Mazuma is set on a gorgeous tropical island, watched over by a cheery volcano named Mount Mazuma. While sleepy most of the time, hit the right combination of symbols and Mazuma will erupt, sending small bonus features flying along with the deluge of molten hot igneous stone.
It is a fun cartoon world, with a nice atmosphere and a light and airy feel. It makes volcanoes seem like more of a beach holiday rather than a natural disaster waiting to happen.
The graphics are a stand out part of Mount Mazuma, the symbols are simple and easy to read. They are also perfectly rendered for the style of the game.
In the background, the mountain is animated with an amusing and expressive face that gives plenty of warm humour to his regular venting of hot gases and flaming ash and rock.
Mount Mazuma is an any way wins slot machine. This means that any line of symbols appearing in consecutive reels can win as long as they start in the rightmost or leftmost reel.
There are five reels which are three symbols high, with an extra row above and below which are covered with palm trees and only come into play when certain bonus parameters are met (see below for details).
The background music is innocuous, a disappearing but relaxing ukelele played in typical south Pacific style.
There are two randomly triggered bonus features.
The first of the random bonuses is the Symbol Multiplier Feature in which a random number of symbols are given a double multiplier that doubles the winnings for any combo that includes that symbol. Where multiple multipliers appear on the line, they are multiplied together.
The second is called the Extra Wilds feature in which two random symbols are turned into Wilds before winnings are calculated.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the Scatter.
The Scatter has a number of effects. First of all, for every Scatter present on the main reels one of the palm trees covering the top and bottom rows is removed before winnings are calculated.
If you hit three Scatters you win back your bet per spin, for four you win five times your bet per spin and for five Scatters you get ten times your bet per spin.
If you hit three or more Scatters you also trigger a free spin bonus in which you receive ten free games. During free spins any palm trees remain removed for the rest of the free spins. Free spins cannot be retriggered.
The volatility of Mount Mazuma is very high, making it an excellent fit for our preferred strategies. The return to player for this game is also 97.98%, much higher than the 96% we take as a rough yardstick for the industry.
