AfterShock Frenzy is one of those mobile slot games that does not require a lengthy introduction. Its name says it all – wins register 9.0 on the Richter scale and these are followed up by quaking aftershocks. With its fabulous bonus features and multipliers, this game will definitely put you in quite a frenzy. I am aware that my description of this game may feel like a superficial advert. However, I urge you to try this game for yourself. It is quite a doozy.

Aftershock uses a 3×3 reel layout, which are loaded with classic slot symbols such as the Bar and 7’s. You should aim to score combinations of blue or red 7s, which are worth £1,000 and £1,200 respectively! It is quite a minimalist slot, by today’s standards, with only five paylines. The five paylines are fixed during each spin and you cannot choose to play with lesser paylines. However, you can configure the amount you’d like to wager for each spin. The minimum bet is a meagre 25p.
There are few buttons on the screen. There’s AutoPlay, so you can play with a ultra high pace; Spin for regular gameplay; and Big Bet to raise the stakes. If you activate Big Bet mode, you’ll double the amount that you stand to win – from 1000 times to a whopping 2000 times!
The Big Bet mode also creates additional bonus symbols. We’ll get into the bonus features in the next section. Finally, the Big Bet mode increases the Return To Player Percentage from 95% to 97%! My advice is simple: If you can afford it, ALWAYS hit the Big Bet button. Big Bets cost a minimum of £2 per spin.

Do not be fooled by its retro looks. Aftershock Frenzy packs a punch with its Double and Triple Aftershock features. A Double Aftershock will double the original prize, while a Triple Aftershock triples it. These magnificent features can be compounded as well. Get 2 Double Aftershocks in a single payline and you’ll quadruple your cash prize. A Double and a Triple will multiple the prize by 6 times; two Triples multiplies the prize by 9!
The fun doesn’t stop there. There are your typical slot Wild symbols, which can substitute for any symbol to complete a winning payline. When combined with an Aftershock, the Wild can payout the biggest prize of £200,000!
Finally, there is the Aftershock Frenzy feature. Free spins aren’t reserved for the lucky few either. Instead of hunting down Scatter symbols, the machine randomly awards free spins throughout the game. Better yet, these free spins are guaranteed to win. Wilds become sticky, Double Aftershocks become Triple Aftershocks… so much happens at a single time and you’ll be happy to neglect the finer details.
Why bother, when you can simply roll in fresh dough? During my brush with the Frenzy feature, I was surprised with 7 fortuitous free spins and 2 minutes of buzzing activity. After spending a mere 25p in the original spin, I walked away £20 richer!
Aftershock evokes an authentic gambling experience, one where you’re lounging among noisy slot machines with a cold glass of beer. Aftershock plays catchy casino music in the background and flashy animation while you play. I really loved the gaming experience. The online slot also features big red buttons, complete with the mechanical sound and blinking lights. What more, the simple 3×3 reel setup makes it a great game to play on small screens.
Aftershock Frenzy is produced by this company called WMS Gaming, which specializes in land-based video slot machines. Its roots stem way back to 1994, harking back to the early days of slot machines. It is rare to play a game that is so steeped in casino history.
Thankfully, WMS Gaming did not produce a cheesy video slot, and instead succeeded in creating one that celebrates the retro-days. To those of you who have been playing slots for more than a decade or so, you will get the chance to reminisce the good old times when you used to play on real slot machines!
Aftershock Frenzy will definitely appeal to players looking for a simple slot to play. It is capable of huge line hits (and money-making streaks too). Its classic features will also thrill the most sophisticated players.
No matter how many innovative games you have tried, there is nothing better than a good old, authentic slot. Promise me that you’ll play Aftershock Frenzy on your next mobile casino visit.
