Inspired by Dante’s fourteenth-century classic trilogy the Divine Comedy, Afterlife Inferno slot is a 5×3 video slot released by Leander in May 2018, featuring 20 Paylines.
It is a take on the famous story, in which Dante journeys through hell’s nine circles en route to Paradise. The background is definitely hellish! It features smoke, creepily dark cavernous spaces and flowing lava.
How to play
Turn the reels from 0.20 to a hefty 60 a pop.
Basic symbols include the playing-card values, 9 to Ace. Among the premium icons are Beatrice, Virgil, the devil, and, at 1,000x stake for five the most lucrative of the lot, Dante himself. Others on the cast list include God, Angel, Dis, Skiff and Geryon.
Afterlife Inferno Slot Special Features
The Wild does the standard job of replacing standard icons, apart from the Scatters (the game’s logo). It will add a 2x multiplier on any line on which it lands, and you can scoop a 5,000x wager win for five in a row. Sticky Expanding Wilds also feature here.
Hell Freezes Over
If you’re familiar with Thunderstruck 2 and its Wild Storm round, Hell Freezes Over may remind you of that. It basically crops up randomly in the base game, and the scene becomes frozen rather than one of hellfire.
At least one reel becomes fully Wild. But if you land a Wild on more than one reel during your whirl, it also expands to take up the entire reel – equally, you’ll be in line for a respin. Fill the whole screen with Wilds to enjoy the top 5,000x payday.
The process continues until no fresh Wilds show up. You could find yourself winning 8,744x stake here.
As usual with slots, this element is the main event in Afterlife Inferno slot.
It offers a hat-trick of free spins options, each presenting a different degree of volatility. Kick-start things in the usual way with a trio of Scatters. Three, four or five of these will yield 2, 50 or 500x stake respectively.
Expect to be whisked away to the Castle of Dis, from where you have three choices:
- Inferno free spins (mid-volatility)
This can be retriggered, and essentially comprises 15 free whirls and a random multiplier of between 3x and 15x.
- Purgatory free spins (mid-volatility)
Here, again, you get 15 free whirls plus an increasing multiplier. The value of your multiplier is shown to your reels’ right.
- Paradise free spins (high volatility)
This one gives you a dozen freebies, plus temporary sticky Wilds, while the background changes to a peaceful rural scene. Wilds come with a figure which indicates the number of whirls they will remain sticky for.
With no progressive jackpot here, top potential prize is 10,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is pretty generous in this game, at 96.38% to 96.5%. (It varies a little depending on your free spins feature of choice.) Be aware that variance is high here.
You can expect to find top-notch visuals and sound and a great atmosphere in Afterlife Inferno slot. There are also some excellent features to be enjoyed here, and the design showcases some incredible creativity.
What’s more, you’ll enjoy it in particular if slots with a classical theme are your thing.
So this one is definitely worth a spin – try it out in free demo mode first of all and let us know what you thought; whether that was diabolical or otherwise!
