Hammer of Vulcan: Quickspin’s new addition

Quickspin have developed a brand-new slot with a big theme and even bigger game play with all kinds of impressive numbers at work with Hammer of Vulcan. This slot is the first time that Quickspin have decided to integrate a bonus buy feature into their slot, making Hammer of Vulcan a fitting match for the debut of their new concept. Quickspin has also super-sized almost every part of the game, including the potential to make the player desperate to spin.

The title could cause some confusion, and we are sorry Trekkies, this isn’t set on the home planet of Spock. No, Quickspin is referring to the Roman mythology instead. This is the same realm as their slots such as Nero’s Fortune and Artemis vs Medusa. Vulcan was the Roman god of fire, with volcanos often shown above his forge as he crafts a number of impressive items.

Regardless, Quickspin has done a good job of showing the players the superiority of him. The slot itself plays out over 6 reels and 4 rows in an impressive 24 icon game area. This gives the player a total of 4,096 ways to win, winning both ways. Players view the game area on a tilt, as if standing at the level of Vulcan’s sandals and looking up at him.

Bet Strategy

For this slot, players can join in on the steel bashing if they’re willing to offer up something to the God himself to spin. This ranges from 10p to £100 per spin. This allows all players, whether they are high rollers or new to the game, the chance to win big.
However, saying that the volatility might be one to turn the players away as it is rated 5 out of 5. The ride for wins is bumpy, but mirrors the Roman mythology perfectly, where one minute the Gods rewards you, and then within seconds they can punish you on a whim.
Finally, a disappointing RTP, which is set at 95.81%, below the average we are used to seeing. But maybe this is okay with the number of features to prop this up.

Symbols

The symbols for this slot have two types: the regular and the premium. The lower paying regular symbols include the royals of 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher paying premium slots are better linked to the theme of the slot. The premiums include tongs, shields, helmets, swords, chalices, and gold golems. Matching six of these premiums will give you a winning amount of 4, 5 or 12 times the stake.
There are also two kinds of wilds: the standard and the Hammer. The standard wild has the same value as the gold golem and will substitute for all paying symbols on the reels. The Hammer wild is mentioned more below.
Design wise, the game is set against the backdrop of Mount Etna in Sicily, which creates a creepy enough atmosphere – this is backed by the creepy melancholy soundtrack which just adds to the creepy vibe that the slot has to offer.

Features

Vulcan stamps his name across all the features: Hammer Strikes, Light the Forge!, Strike Again!, and the buy in option.
The Hammer Strike feature is where the Hammer Wild comes into play. Landing a Hammer Wild, Vulcan will slam the reels and turn all the symbols below the Hammer Wild on the same reel in the regular wild. Hammer Wilds can appear on any reel and will create more wilds to create even bigger wins. Although Vulcan looks intimidating, the gentle giant brings good luck when he whips out his hammer.

Landing the volcano scatter symbol will trigger the Light the Forge! bonus game. 10, 12, 15 or 20 free spins will be awarded respectively when the player lands 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters on the reels. During the feature, volcano scatters landing on the reels will add 1-6 spins to the remaining number of spins.
The main benefit of the free spins it that there is a win multiplier which will start at x1. Each time that a Hammer Wild lands on the reels, triggering the Hammer Strike, there is the chance to add +1 to the multiplier. There is no limit to the number of additional free spins that can added or how high the multiplier can get!

Vulcan shows how kind he can be with the Strike Again! feature. If there is no win on the final spin of the free spins, the slot will be awarded another spin until a win is landed.
Finally there is the bonus buy, which has never been seen in a Quickspin slot before. A first, there is a reasonable fee of 80 times the total bet for a combination of 3 to 6 scatters landing on the next spin.

Conclusion

Hammer of Vulcan is a tough game from Quickspin, and one that will be a challenge for the players; only those up for a test should go for it. If you were to pick a word to sum the slot up, you could do worse than calling it ‘brutal’. Savage, callous, and ruthless could also be candidates though. When using the word brutal, we mean it in the best sense, with the audio and visuals impressively in your face; the unrelenting pace of the slot pushes forward and matches to the heavy metal backing and Hammer strike effects. The math model, like Chinese water torture, could be said to only be for the toughest of souls, with the consequences potentially devastating.

However, there are rewards to be had. We haven’t mentioned the potential rewards as we thought the game spoke well for itself. However, now you know how great the slot is, we’ll let you into the secret potential of this slot. A maximum potential of 20,347 times the stake is possible during this slot meaning you could win up to £2,034,700 in a single spin!
