Everything you ever wanted to know about popular online slot machine, Immortal Romance, is on this page!
Introduction to the game
Immortal Romance is another hugely popular game from Microgaming. This fantastically designed, graphic-rich offering features a gothic vampire theme and is all about forbidden love. Some of the characters are madly in love but they can’t be together. Many view this slot as a natural successor to the hit game, Thunderstruck II which featured a similar atmospheric theme, but most players think Immortal Romance is the superior of the two games. It’s not short on gaming features either with a 5-reel slot and a massive 243 different ways to win.
The game introduces you to several characters such as Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah and builds an interesting story line as you play. Throughout play, you can read snippets about each character’s back-story which keeps interest levels high. It’s more like a story that has been turned into a video slot than simply a slot with a theme, which makes this game a little different to some of the regular slots.
How to play
The scatter is represented by the Golden Lion door knocker. When you land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels, you unlock the coveted bonus round and enter the Chamber of Spins where you get the chance to make some big wins.
There are four different free spins bonus rounds each of which is introduced by one of the game characters:
Amber Bonus feature – Available when you trigger the first bonus feature. Amber awards you 10 free spins. All wins are multiplied by x5 multiplier and can be re-triggered.
Troy Bonus feature – Available from the time of the 5th trigger of the bonus feature. Troy awards you 15 free spins with the ‘Vampire Bats’ feature. When you trigger this, bats appear in those 15 free spins, at a random position in a winning combination and turn random symbols into x2 and x3 multipliers. Up to 6x multiplier can be awarded.
Michael bonus feature – Available when you trigger the bonus feature from 10 times on. Michael awards 20 free spins with ‘Rolling Spins’. If you get any winning combination in the free spins, the connected symbols will roll and change to other random symbols while the multiplier will go up by 1x at every single combination. In this round, multipliers can reach x5.
Sarah bonus feature – available when you have triggered 15 of the bonus features. Sarah awards 25 free spins with a ‘wild vine’ feature. When the wild vine symbol appears on the 3rd reel, it randomly transforms symbols into wild substitution. If you get 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters when you play with the free spins, you’ll get more free spins based on the number of scatters you’ve got.
All of the options give you different ways to win with the Sarah feature having the highest potential jackpot of 60,000 coins for all of the wilds.
Wild is represented by The Immortal Romance symbol. Wild symbol doubles any win it is part of and pays an additional 1,500 credits for five of a kind (15,000 at max bet).
At any time during regular play the Wild Desire feature can be won. This feature adds between 1 and 5 wild reels to the screen. Get three or four and you could be eligible for a big win. Getting all five pays the biggest reward – the 3,645,000 credit jackpot.
Coin sizes are limited to 0.01, 0.02, 0.05 and 0.10 and players can choose to play between 1 and 10 coins per line. There are automatically 30 ‘paylines’ in play on every spin so the maximum bet ranges in size from 3.00 to 30.00.
The major jackpot prize available is 60,000 coins. This is won when all five reels turn wild when the Wild Desire bonus feature and maximum multiplier are in play during the Chamber of Spins feature round.
Further significant jackpot prizes include a payout of 90,000 coins for hitting 5x Immortal Romance logo wild symbols when the 6x multiplier is in play during the Troy character round of the Chamber of Spins feature.
In base play, the biggest win on offer is 15,000 coins when you hit 5x Immortal Romance logo wild symbols.
Graphics are detailed and atmospheric with lots of cool effects such as sparkly particles when you enter an old crypt and ornate silverwork trimming the reels. The characters are nicely animated when you get a win. Background soundtrack is spooky piano music which adds to the overall gothic atmosphere.
Overall, Immortal Romance is a low-volatility game that offers players a good number of small to medium payouts on a regular basis making it a very a good choice for those players who always like to feel like something is happening. The vampire narrative and the in-depth characters and storyline make this slot a bit more than a regular game. It also offers a lot in terms of the elaborate and complex bonus rounds, which means you can keep on playing for a long time without getting bored. The potentially huge jackpot is a significant added attraction!
