Hammer of Vulcan slot review (Quickspin)
Hammer of Vulcan is a brutal Quickspin slot with some serious win potential
The slot is about an erupting volcano, where nature gets a hand from a Roman Warrior, who hits the erupting volcano as hard as he can, with a colossal hammer.
I once learnt that you could stir up a geyser with soap. It often happens at tourist attractions, to give the tourists value for money.
Does the same hold for volcanos? Can you give it a whirl?
If you have all the luck in the world, you can land the top win of over 20,000x
How about that! Of all the Quickspin slots, it’s the highest max win I’ve seen so far!
It’s no surprise the slot comes with such a brutal theme!
Number of paylines: 6×4 layout and 4,096 ways to win
RTP and variance: 95.81%, High
Maximum win: 20,347 x the total bet
Betting range: $€0.10 – $€100
Bonus features: Free Spins, Buy a Bonus Feature
Pasadena Pinot Fest Casinos verdict: Hot when it comes to the win potential. The RTP is a bit low, though.

Hammer of Vulcan slot – Gameplay and Features
Hammer of Vulcan has six reels with four symbols each. The win-all-ways concept applies, and there are 4.096 (4x4x4x4x4x4=4.096) ways to win.
The high-paying symbols are (from highest to lowest): a Gold Golem, a Chalise, Swords, a Helmet, a Shield, and Tongs. These yield a win of 4.4x to 12x, for a 6-of-a-kind.
The low-paying symbols are the royals: X (10 written in roman), J, Q, K and A.
Furthermore, you have Wild symbols (Gold coloured “W” symbols) and the so-called Hammer Wilds, the brutal Roman Warriors with a hammer.
The Volcanoes are the Scatters (Quickspin calls these the Volcano Scatters).
The Hammer Strike Feature
The main game gets an extra boost, thanks to the Hammer Strike Feature. As soon as a Hammer Wild appears on one of the reels, it changes into a regular Wild symbol.
But, what’s better is that all the symbols below the Hammer Wild become Wilds as well. The Roman Warrior “hammers” these symbols into Wilds.
Yes, it matters a lot if you get the Hammer Wild on the top or bottom row!
How do you get the free spins (Light the Forge! bonus game)?
You get 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins if you spin 3, 4, 5 or 6 Volcano Scatters.
If you’re in a hurry or impatient, you can also use the Buy a Bonus Feature. It costs 80x the original bet. If you choose to buy the bonus, you’ll get 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters in the next spin.
If you get more volcano Scatters during the free spins, you gain additional free spins.
1, 2, 3 or 4 Volcano Scatters are good for 1, 2, 4 or 6 extra free spins.
The free spins can be incredibly lucrative…
…thanks to the Hammer Strike Feature, combined with the win multiplier.
Every time you spin a Hammer Wild, the symbols below convert into Wilds. But the main bonus is that the total multiplier is increased by +1 for all remaining free spins!
So, yes, the more free spins you have, the better, as you get more time to build a high multiplier and have more time to make winning combos.
What’s also lovely is the Strike Again feature. If your last free spin isn’t a winner, you’ll get an extra free spin until you end up with a winner!
Payout percentage (RTP)
The payout percentage of Hammer of Vulcan is 95.81%, which is a bit disappointing. I guess most online casinos won’t object!
The variance (volatility) of Hammer of Vulcan is high
I do not doubt that we’re talking about a high variance slot, and perhaps even an extremely high variance slot.
Most top wins will be a few thousand times the stake.
Pros en Cons
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
Players who hunt for insane wins (and therefore happy to take the risk) are at the right place. The slot has some very compelling features, but the gameplay is a bit simplistic. Some players love it, but others may find it too dull.
