The upside: You get infinite money during your life, and do not have to face any negative consequences during life for the privilege (so no getting in legal trouble or anything).
The downside: If hell exists, then you are automatically sent there for your afterlife.
Note: if it turns out that hell does not exist, then there is no downside towards taking this deal.

I believe in everlasting hell, so No by default.

No. Infinite money would be boring. Make it a mere trillion dollars and I might consider it.

I'd do it. I'm not opposed to going to hell as it is.

Infinite is a bit much, and seems a fortiori to suggest that nobody else has any, which makes the hypothetical impractical to put it mildly, but that nitpick aside (I'd settle for a measly 100 billion), since I think the odds hell exists are basically zero, sure. But not from birth. Give me the winning lottery ticket at about say age 30.

What is the nature of this hell, and of the likelihood that it exists?

The likelihood that it exists is zero, so no need to worry about the nature of it.

I mean, in any situation where we’re talking about receiving infinite money, I don’t think real-world logic applies.

Deals with the devil never work out in your favor. Rookie mistake. Hell no.

Yes, because I'm pretty confident that there's no afterlife

Wouldn't infinite money be worth nothing?

And no. I am agnostic on the existence of Hell, but I'll pass on that gamble.
