Rise above and be reborn again. This is the life of a Phoenix, a mythological bird-like creature that never dies. Originally, the phoenix comes from Greek mythology, but the creature has made its appearance in many different cultures. Once the phoenix dies, it turns into ashes and from these ashes it is reborn once again. This majestic bird is the face of the new slot by 1x2 Gaming called Phoenix Inferno. The name is not to be confused with the American football team.
Phoenix is always associated with fire, so naturally, the Phoenix Inferno slot is very fiery, visually and gameplay-wise. There have been a couple of interesting titles from 1x2 Gaming, most notably Whisker Jones and Theseus Rises, but other than that the studio hasn’t made that much noise. Slots about phoenix aren’t anything new, but it is an intense theme that usually attracts a few thrill-seekers. With a max payout of 7,500x, we are sure Phoenix Inferno will do just that. Will the Phoenix rise above the competition?
Phoenix Inferno Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
The flames are everywhere, quite literally. The background consists of flaming stars and molten lava and the symbols are on fire too. Phoenix Inferno will make you want to turn down your temperature. The 5 reel 3 row layout uses 243 paylines. The music does well to create an intense atmosphere to match the flaming visuals, but other than that, it is nothing spectacular. To be fair, all the fire is a bit overwhelming, because that is the only thing that you can see, this means that the visuals get boring pretty quick.
Every Phoenix Inferno symbol beside the scatter involves flames in some way. The low symbols are flame covered 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. High symbols are different characters such as chimaera, hellhound, dragon, sorceress and also a volcano, all fired up. The wild symbol is the phoenix while the scatter symbol is gemstones, which feels a bit out of place with the theme. If we need to sum up all the visuals of Phoenix Inferno, then we would call them mediocre. The quality of the presentation is not bad, but it’s just awfully boring.
Phoenix Inferno payouts in many ways are quite streaky. There are positives and there are negatives, but it’s hard to say which outweigh which. A positive thing definitely is the max payout of 7,500x, as that’s a spectacular win to have. The negative in this scenario would be the 95% RTP, which can make Phoenix Inferno a tad stingy in the long run. The volatility is rated 4/5 by 1x2 Gaming, which leaves it somewhere in the medium-high range. The Phoenix Inferno bet range is 0.20 – 20, so chances for the biggest high rollers are a bit limited.
Phoenix is the Phoenix Inferno wild symbol, it comes in stacked form during the Free Spins. The Free Spins bonus is activated with 3-5 scatters. Starting spins are 8, 12 and 16 respectively. If you manage to collect 4 scatters, then the lowest paying symbol will be removed for Free Spins, but if you collect 5, the second-lowest symbol goes away too. Extra scatters grant extra Free Spins, plus, they help to remove even more low-value symbols, leaving you with just the best ones. The goal is to have only creatures and phoenix left on the board.
Phoenix Inferno won’t really be the talk of the town. The presentation, from the quality standpoint, is well made, but it’s just quite dull and regular, it definitely doesn’t cause any exciting feelings. Now the payouts are quite decent. Phoenix Inferno can be a tough slot, as from time to time it likes to leave you with a bunch of empty spins, but usually, every tough slot hides a good potential, and this is the case with Phoenix Inferno. Other than that, it’s more or less what we have seen before, so you won’t miss out on a lot by not playing Phoenix Inferno, but those who do decide to give it a try, might find themselves with a pleasant win in the pocket.
