Do Play’n GO Turn Up the Heat in Their Latest High Variance Classic Themed Slot Inferno Star?
Casumo Casino has recently added a new Play’n GO slot titled Inferno Star which is a classicly themed fruit machine style with a modern twist.
Everything has been stripped down the basics in this high variance release, with a regular 5×3 reel array and just 5 fixed paylines, as a result, most if not all of the symbols on the reels are capable of producing some very decent 5 of a kind wins, there are a couple of even higher paying outlier symbols the Sun and the special Raging Sun Scatter symbol where wins of up to 2500x stake are possible.
It has to be said that the simplistic nature of this machine is certainly only going to appeal to a very specific set of slot players, if you enjoy crazy bonus features and lots of random features triggering in the base game then this certainly isn’t going to be a slot that appeals to you.
If however, you are a fan of no-nonsense high variance machines then you may be pleasantly surprised with the potency of this release.
The key to this slot is firmly based on the special Raging Sun Scatter symbol which is only initially present on the middle reel, when this lands in view it is held on the reels, with any other sun symbols then converted into scatters and held in position also, a simple re-spin mechanic then plays out and any further sun symbols that land in view are held, the re-spin mechanic continues until no more sun symbols land in view.
This simple mechanic alone is the key feature to scoring the biggest wins on Inferno Star, and in all honesty that is simply all that is on offer in this release.

Raging Sun Re-Spins
The Raging Sun Re-Spins feature is activated when one Raging Sun Scatter symbol lands on reel 3. This reel is then held in position, with any of the other regular Sun symbols also being converting into Raging sun symbols for this bonus feature.
A simple re-spin of the reels then occurs with any further Raging Sun symbols held on the reels, this process continues until no new symbols land in view or 5 have landed on the reels!
Inferno Star Slot
There isn’t really too much to say about the Inferno Star slot, it is super simplistic and super high variance, the main issue being that it’s almost too simple that there is a distinct lack of enjoyment or anticipation to be had from actually playing it.
The big wins are definitely there, but the Inferno Re-Spins can be quite infrequent, and simply produce no wins when additional symbols fail to appear, some decent base game hits on offer but honestly, I just don’t see it appealing to the target audience enough to make you want to play this machine for prolonged periods.
Whilst we did manage some fantastic wins we didn’t get the same excitement from a sticky wild bonus round in a slot like Dead or Alive, possibly one to have a few hundred spins on autoplay but not much more..
