Inferno Star Slot Machine
Play’N GO went with the classic theme for their newest slot, Inferno Star. Although the name sounds more promising and you would expect Dan Brown-style action, you will actually get a classic fruit machine with the Sun symbol that plays the main role of a Scatter. But don’t get disappointed; the game guarantees some great payouts, so stay with us.
There is no Wild in this slot, multiplier nor Free Spins. Instead, there are two special features that matter, the Scatter and the Raging Sun Re-Spins feature.
The Scatter is the Raging Sun symbol, which can give you a 25x, 75x, or 500x the stake for 3, 4, or 5 symbols appearing across a payline. The Raging Sun symbol has the most important role in this slot, and that is triggering the Raging Sun Re-Spins.
You will need 1 Raging Sun symbol on the 3rd reel in order to activate the Raging Sun Re-Spins feature. The 3rd reel then will stand still, while the other reels will start respinning. During the Respins, all Sun symbols transform into the Raging Sun Scatter symbols. Then, each Sun symbol that lands during the Respins, it is held and you are rewarded with another Respin. Until no more Sun symbols appear, the feature will be active. That means that you could get 125x, 375x or 2,500x the stake payout during the Respins!
Theme & Design
You will see the burning Sun in the background, and on the reels, as we said, you will see the classic symbols, the watermelons, the apples, the cherries, the lemons, the plums and the Raging Sun Scatter symbol. Other than that, there is nothing special on the reels nor in the background.
Theme-wise, we would say that we expected more, judging from the title of the slot. The graphics are nice, though, and the gameplay is pretty straightforward, which we find great.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 5 fixed paylines in this slot, but you can change the line bet amounts. These can go from $0.01 per line to $20.00 per line, which for 5 paylines means that the total bet varies from $0.05 to $100.00.
As you could see from the features, the highest payout can be 2,500x for 5-of-a-kind made with Scatter symbols across all five reels. But since the game is high on the volatility scale, we could say that that would be really hard to achieve, so you could win the $250,000.00 only if you’re betting the max bet. 5 Scatters on one reel could give you a nice payout, 500x the stake, and that is not as difficult to get, so there is still hope.
Inferno Star is a slot intended for slot players who prefer classic slot machines and a fitting betting range. It is definitely not for those players who want an engaging theme and an action-packed slot, filled with special features. No, this one is for the players who don’t like to think that much and just bet and hope for the best. Play’N GO usually makes more immersive slots, but as we could see, their idea for this particular slot was to keep things simple and provide the straightforward slot players with a new game to enjoy. If you belong in that group of players, go ahead and try it.
