Leading online casino gaming software provider, Microgaming, is heating things up with its second release for the month of November, Volatile Slot.
The launch is courtesy of an exclusive new content supply agreement with Golden Rock Studios. The Gibraltar-headquartered game development studio was founded in 2018 by former William Hill Chief Product Officer and Director of Gaming, James Curwen, and slots specialist and former Head of Gaming at William Hill, Will Mathieson.
“With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content.”
Under the terms of the newly inked supply deal, the UK-based developer will distribute its content via Microgaming’s award-winning platform, adding to its significant games portfolio.
The five-by-three reel, 10-payline online video slot is the development studio’s very first game launch. Described as “energetic,” the game pays left to right and is erupting with dynamic features, including an extra spins bonus and two different game modes.
From an island backdrop, an active volcano spews two types of wilds, exploding wilds and volcanic wilds, which spins in on the reels, awarding players with multipliers while triggering the extra spins feature.
Reels two, three and four will see the appearance of volcanic wilds, which substitute for all other symbols, and have the potential to make the transformation into exploding wilds which reveal either a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier.
Big win potential:
Landing more than one exploding wild sees the initial multiplier multiplied by all of the exploding wilds set on the reels, with a trio of exploding wilds awarding players the maximum 64x multiplier, or 4x³, on total wins.
When the game’s frenzied extra spins feature is triggered, a minimum of 10 extra spins is awarded, alongside enhanced reels sets, seeing heightened exploding wilds and volcanic wilds.

…Chief Commercial Officer for the award-winning Isle of Man millionaire maker, Jean-Luc Ferriere, said…
“With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content. Volatile Slot is an impressive debut title and is now available across Microgaming’s entire customer base following a two-week period of exclusivity with LeoVegas.”
For its part, Chief Executive Officer for Golden Rock Studios, James Curwin, added…
“We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months.
“Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience and is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot is by its very nature, volatile, and if the volcano erupts, the level of extremity is taken to a whole new level for the player, with the maximum win at a 25,600 times stake!”
The very high volatility, mobile-ready slot is now available via desktop, iOs and Android to Microgaming operators.
