Inferno Star

What’s your local Inferno Star? It’s the Sun! Right, though most of us think of it more positively than that title suggests we should!

This is a relatively lightly themed game though, with a Raging Sun symbol thrown into the reels of a really quite classic, retro slot.

The respin round that this symbol helps to trigger are the main bonuses in this game from the massive Play’n GO company.

It was released in 2018, but Inferno Star slot is pretty timeless. The symbols it uses and its aesthetic could be seen on reels from any time in the past few decades.

No doubt these games will always stay in fashion: they generally major on delivering simple but rewarding gameplay, and this game is high variance like many such titles.

There are a couple of things to bear in mind with this game, including an RTP range, so should you stump up the cash to start your journey to the Inferno Star?

The Game

Inferno Star slot

This game uses the standard Play’n GO control panel.

That means an information button at the bottom left of the screen, followed by, a Balance window. In the centre is the betting scale, which is replaced by the gamble/collect choice if you hit a win. Then there is a bet size window, followed by the spin button and an auto spin control. Auto spin allows you to stop the sequence after a set number of spins, after a certain size win, after any win, after a feature trigger, or on wins or losses over a certain amount.

The pay table opens on grapes, which pay 1, 3, 9, and 25-times stake for sets up to 5. Lemons pay 3, 9, and 25-times stake. Plums pay 3, 9, and 25-times stake. Apples pay the same. Cherries pay 9, 25, and 75-times stake, as do melons.

The small sun pays 25, 75, and 500-times stake.

The raging sun is a scatter, it also pays 125, 375, and 2,500-times stake, the top prize.

Raging suns trigger the respins when they land in the central reel. Suns are held in place while the reels respin, new spins that land turn into the scatter symbol. The feature ends when there are no more suns.

The Verdict

There’s not a great deal to say about this game. It is relatively simple in a lot of ways, and perhaps the best way to judge whether it’s for you is to try it out.

As usual with Play’n GO, the graphics, sound, animation, and operation can’t be faulted. It looks beautiful.

But Play’n GO usually means lower RTPs. So bear that in mind. And the high variance that might mean you have to wait for a win.

As to bonuses, there’s little to record: scatters trigger a re-spin, there is no free spins round, which will be a deal-breaker for some players. The gamble feature is something we always like to see as it adds a level of interest to the game, but essentially this is a single-shot game.

Good looking and potentially rewarding, this game will probably go very well with mobile players, who will appreciate its retro look and feel.
