Afterlife: Inferno

If you love slots based around classic stories then you should definitely give Afterlife: Inferno a spin now. Developed by the creatives at Leander Games, this is based on the epic tale of Dante’s Inferno. You can take your first steps along this mythical journey right now at Slot Shack!


Leander Games has truly gone all out when it comes to the background imagery of this game. You can just about glimpse the spires of the Devil’s palace behind the reels as steam and lava pour down on either side. It makes for an extremely evocative place to set a slot game.

The game’s lower paying symbols are brimstone-like spikes which gleam against the dark background. They are the run of symbols one might have seen in many another slot game; A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9.

Higher paying symbols are represented by characters from Dante’s story; starting with the main man himself dressed in red, and his guides Virgil and Beatrice in yellow and blue respectively. Other symbols include the Devil, the ferryman Charon, and the beast Geryon.

There are a few more scatters. Each of the bonus levels has its own unique symbols to add a little flair and originality to each one. There is also a blue and gold Wild symbol and the free spins bonus scatter which is a mini version of the background.

How to Play

Afterlife: Inferno is as simpler a game as we have ever played thanks to Leander Games placing everything you need to navigate the game under the reels. You will first need to decide which bet you want to place. This is done by clicking the “Total Bet” button and selecting one of the options from the pop-up menu above.

You can then click either the spin on the right or choose one of the autoplay options right beside it to see if you land a win. To do so, all you need is 3 or more matching symbols along one of the game’s paylines. For more information about the game, be sure to check out the paytable in the bottom left corner.

Game Features

Just as Dante’s journey took many twists and turns, so does this game have many bonuses. The first you are likely to encounter is the Wild multiplier. Every single Wild in the game will double any win it is used in.

Secondly, any random turn may trigger the Hell Freezes Over bonus round. Here, extra reels are added to the game and landing Wilds will expand to cover their whole reel! In addition to that, each Wild will trigger a respin. Keep going until no more Wilds land.

Finally, there is the free spins. You need three of the bonus scatters to activate them, and then you get a choice between three sets of bonus spins! The Inferno Spins grant you 15 free spins with a random win multiplier, the Purgatory Spins grant you 15 free spins with an increasing multiplier, and the Paradise Spins are 12 spins with Sticky Wilds!

You don’t have to know the Divine Comedy well to play this game but if you are a fan then you will recognise many of the hidden motifs. Nevertheless, we think this is a tremendously fun slot which everyone should play!
