Crafted by Leander Games, Afterlife Inferno has five reels and twenty paylines based on Dante’s 14th-century poem The Divine Comedy. Located in a fiery underworld, it comes with a wild that doubles player’s win when part of a winning combination.
There is a Hell Freezes Over round where wilds become wild reels with respins awarded. Players can then get to pick from three free spins features where they will benefit from random multipliers up to x15, increasing multipliers and sticky/eternity wilds.
Dante’s 14th-century epic poem The Divine Comedy has provided inspiration for poets, writers and musicians for centuries, and now it has been given the online video slot treatment from the developer.
There’s a classical feel to the visuals in Afterlife Inferno - the primary gameplay occurs in a fiery, yet hellish underworld setting. Players will see flame style playing cards plus an assortment of characters from the famous poem itself – Dante, Beatrice, Virgil, God, Dis, Geryon, Angel and Skiff amongst others.
Keep a close eye out for the wild icon that doubles the payout whenever it forms part of a winning combination – it offers payouts of 250 times a player’s bet stake should they land five across a payline.
Afterlife Inferno has a jackpot paradise when as it comes with a range of bonus rounds including:
Hell Freezes Over feature - when this is triggered, up to five wild reels are added. After a regular payout has been calculated, any wilds remaining will transform into a wild reel, and a respin is granted with any wilds becoming locked in place. The process is replicated until there’s a respin where no new wild symbols fall.
It is all about the three free spins rounds that can be accessed by landing three or more of the scatter symbols on the same spin – three, four or five will give players either x2, x50 or x500 their bet stake. Players are then taken to the Castle of Dis where they will get to pick from one of the three following features:
Inferno Free Spins Bonus - choose this round, and players will be awarded fifteen free spins. Each winning free turn will be boosted by a random multiplier of between x3 and x15. Landing three scatter symbols will re-trigger another round of fifteen free spins, all with multipliers.
Purgatory Free Spins Bonus - choose this round, and players will be awarded fifteen free spins. Multipliers are critical to the action here too. Each winning free turn boosts the multiplier by x1. Landing two scatter symbols will grant players one additional free spin - landing three, and players will get three more free spins.
Paradise Free Spins Bonus - choose this round, and players will be rewarded with twelve free spins. Each time a wild lands, it will stay locked in place for up to six free turns. Players should seek to locate an eternity wild as this remains locked for the entire feature. The only downside is that players are not able to re-trigger more free spins.
Afterlife Inferno is an impressively crafted video slot. The visuals are inspired by centuries-old paintings and look rather enjoyable. The features serve up plenty of volatile action too with potential wins on offer from the free spins and the multipliers.
