Theme of the Game
Erupting with colourful symbols and cheerful summer tunes, Lava Loca comes loaded with Wilds, Multiplying Wilds, Expanding Symbols and Free Spins. A joyful summer party in a tropical island, sandy beaches, flower necklaces and funny wooden masks await you in this entertaining and lucrative video slot. Stunning graphics and great animations alongside with a catchy soundtrack add to the overall pleasurable gaming experience.
The reels are placed on a wall of a beach cottage with torches burning on both sides casting light on wooden masks that stand for high-value icons and playing card symbols, Jack through Ace, also done in wood, that deliver lower payouts.

How to Play It
Lava Loca is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with 20 changeable paylines, playable from as low as $0.01 and up to $200 per spin. If you want to increase your chances of wins, it is advisable you leave all 20 winlines active, since symbols deliver payouts when appearing on consecutive reels on a payline, from the leftmost position.
To adjust your bet you must press the “up” and “down” arrows, setting the value from $0.01 to $10.00. The total bet will be the result of the amount of your line bet multiplied by the number of active paylines. To spin the reels with the highest bet, press the Bet Max button. To enjoy the party and relax, activate the Autoplay with up to 100 automatic spins.
The game’s Wild is represented with a Lava Loca logo which lands on all reels, substituting all symbols except Scatter to boost your wins. Hit 5 on a payline to receive 10,000 coins if you have placed the maximum bet. The Mystery Multiplying Wild appears on the 3rd reel only, but when it lands, it multiplies your wins by 2x or 4x. Though it multiplies wins in the base game, it doesn’t appear during free Spins.
Scatter is depicted with erupting lava and when at least 3 appear anywhere on the grid, 10 Free Spins are awarded. This feature’s advantage is that it can be retriggered if another 3 Scatters land during it. Once the Free Spins Game is triggered, the Expanding symbol feature is activated. A box, with various symbols depicted on it will spin until you press Stop.
You will thus randomly pick a symbol that will expand during the round. 3 designated symbols must land on at least 3 different reels in order to expand across the entire reel and help increase your wins. This feature can also be retriggered.
To receive hefty payouts in the base game, look out for the most lucrative green-eyed mask which will deliver a prize of 5,000 coins when 5 appear on a winline. To boost your wins by 2x or 4x, the Mystery Multiplying Wild will land on the 3rd reel.
For those really massive payouts, hope to trigger Free Spins, as they can be re-activated and hide a potential maximum payout of 8,000,000 coins. Bear in mind that the payout values in coins depend on your current bet.
To sum up, Lava Loca is a fun and relaxing slot with an almost incredible maximum payout of 8,000,000 coins. The Wild symbol will appear on the reels quite frequently to compliment your winning combinations, but the Multiplying Wild won’t be seen as often as that.
However, the Free Spins feature gets triggered pretty easy and provides mega wins that will boost your bankroll. As the game is optimised for play on portable devices, retaining the desktop quality, you can spin the reels of this entertaining game on your mobile or tablet, as well as on your PC.
