Dante’s 14th century epic poem The Divine Comedy has provided inspiration for writers, poets and musicians for centuries and now it’s been given the online slot treatment from Leander Games. This 5 reel, 20 payline adaptation comes with multiplier wilds, wild reels and 3 different free spin rounds with added wilds and multipliers. Navigate the circles of hell on all devices from 20p to £200 per spin on all devices.

There’s a classical feel to the design in Afterlife Inferno – the base game action takes place in a fiery underworld setting. You’ll see flame style playing cards alongside an assortment of characters from the famous poem – Dante, Beatrice, Virgil, God, Dis, Geryon, Angel and Skiff amongst others.

Keep a special eye out for the wild which doubles the payout whenever they form part of a winning combination – it also offers payouts of 250 times your stake for 5 across a payline. This quest for jackpot paradise comes with a range of bonus features.

Hell Freezes Over feature – when this triggers, up to 5 wild reels are added. After a regular payout calculation has been made, any wilds will turn into a wild reel and a respin is awarded with any wilds locking in place. The process is repeated until there’s a respin where no new wild symbols lands.

It’s all about the 3 free spins features which can be accessed by landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 50 or 500 times your stake. You’ll then be transported to the Castle of Dis where you’ll get to choose from 1 of the 3 following features:

  • Inferno Free Spins Bonus feature – opt for this round and you’ll be awarded 15 free spins. Every winning free spin will be boosted by a random multiplier of between 3x and 15x. Landing 3 scatters retriggers another round of 15 free spins, complete with multipliers.
  • Purgatory Free Spins Bonus feature – once again you’ll be awarded 15 free spins. Multipliers are central to the action here too. Every winning free spin boosts the multiplier by 1x. Land 2 scatters here and 1 extra free spin is added to your total – land 3 and you’ll get 3 more free spins.
  • Paradise Free Spins Bonus feature – choose this heaven-set option and your reward will be 12 free spins. Every time a wild lands, it will remain locked in place for up to 6 free spins. Hope to see an eternity wild as this stays in position for the whole of the feature. The only downside is you can’t re-trigger more free spins.

Afterlife Inferno is an impressively crafted game. The design has been inspired by centuries-old paintings and looks rather good. The features serve up plenty of volatile action too with potential wins of 8,744 times your stake in the Hell Freezes Over feature due to get plenty of wild reels and respins. There’s also big wins on offer from the free spins and the multipliers.

If you enjoy slots with a classical theme then you should find the high variance Afterlife Inferno a heavenly rather than hellish proposition. If you like the theme, WMS’ Frozen Inferno is recommended.
