Lilith's Inferno (Yggdrasil Gaming): Overview
Reviewed by Jared M on
If you are a player who has ever dreamed of descending into the inferno and battling baddies, then your wish has been granted by Avatar UX Studios. Or does it all sounds a bit too niche? Never fear, Lilith's Inferno has the goods to entertain a wide variety of players.
Our hero Lilith is actually kind of cute. It's the guardians of the underworld that get a bit creepy. Fortunately, we get to fight and vanquish them, and the best part is that rewards are there for doing so. The game offers a top prize of 3,968x the stake making a trip to the underworld well worth it if your luck and fighting skills are up to scratch.
Lilith's Inferno might not be the most beautiful slot released under the Yggdrasil brand, but it is nice to look at nonetheless. That assessment goes for the base game at least. When the extras kick in and the action shifts to the battles, players are in for a graphical feast.
The base game is played using 5 reels, 4 rows and 25 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when three or more of a kind land and their payout is calculated against the total bet level. Speaking of bets, players chose spin values starting at 0.10 up to €/£150 which should satisfy the majority of bankrolls.
A quick glance at the paytable reveals 8 pay symbols during the main game. Propping up the lower end are spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds worth from 0.2x up to 6x the stake. Yes, these symbols pop up everywhere, but the studio has worked their magic to make them look fresh. The remaining 4 symbols are the four guardians of the underworld. They provide better value starting at 1x the stake up to a maximum of 24x. Not bad at all, but just wait until the extras flare up.
Lilith's Inferno (Yggdrasil Gaming): Features
This is where the game really heats up. Of course, you could say that about most slots but nowhere is it more true than with Lilith's Inferno. First up we have a golden crown wild which subs in for any of the 8 pay symbols. The gorilla relic symbol might look sinister, but you really want him to land – and the more, the merrier, as so:
- Three gorilla relics = 10 – 20 free spins.
- Four gorilla relics = 15 – 30 free spins.
- Five gorilla relics = 25 – 50 free spins.
That is a lot of Free Spins, and during this frenetic section players can find themselves launched on all sorts of weird and wild tangents. If two VS symbols land during the bonus spins, then it is time to suit up and fight one of the four bosses. The action moves to a gorgeously drawn console style match up. If you aren't a video gamer, don't fret, fighting is easy. Just click on the boss, and you will either score a hit, be blocked, or be hit yourself.
If your health drops to zero, then that battle is over, and it is back to the free spins. If you manage to beat the boss, your reward is 2 extra free spins, and that boss symbol turning wild for the remaining free spins. It is possible to dispatch all four bosses making the reels light up with wilds.
If all of that wasn't enough, the Gorilla Relic symbol also appears on the fifth reel during the bonus rounds. Collect 3, and you receive 4 additional free spins and a 3x multiplier for the rest of the round. Collect less than 3, and they turn into random wilds on the final spin.
Lilith's Inferno (Yggdrasil Gaming): Verdict
It is clear with so much going on during the bonus rounds, with so many avenues for winning why the base game feels like a hard slog at times. Players who like an all or nothing, high volatile approach will enjoy Lilith's Inferno. Those who prefer smaller, ongoing wins might struggle. But with its above-average RTP, the game cannot be classed as stingy. As always, demoing the slot will let you know if it fits your playing style.
Courage is needed to go against the dark forces, and so is patience. Lilith's Inferno is all about the free spins and the battles, and it can be quite a wait for these to land. Not always of course, but catch it in a lull, and it can be a while before the action drops. When it does break a dry spell though, the game explodes into life, causing pulse rates to rise and adrenaline to flow. And it has the ability do so for a good long while with up to 50 free spins up for grabs.
Combining slots with video game-style action isn't completely new, but it isn't exactly common either. Battling during free spins is by far the main event and is a major reason to give Lilith’s Inferno a spin if you are curious. It might feel like an odyssey by the time they launch, but that only makes them all the more desirable. Lilith's Inferno might not be the best slot we've seen, but there it's a decent game nonetheless. It combines good graphics and animations, with an good top prize. Moreover, its absorbing back story and charismatic characters give it personality which makes the action that bit more compelling.
