Love and vampires are the order of the day in Immortal Romance, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from Microgaming. This modern-day fantasy horror-themed title comes with plenty of top features including two bonus features that offer potentially enormous jackpots. And it looks an absolute treat too. Stakes (that’s money, not the vampire destroying kind!) range from 30p to £6 per spin.
Released in 2011, Immortal Romance has become something of a cult classic among online slot fans. With good reason too as it offers plenty of great features and some very chunky paydays. The base game features Microgaming’s standard assortment of wilds and scatters. The Immortal Romance Logo is the wild and substitutes for every other symbol apart from the scatter. Wins containing the Immortal Romance Logo are doubled.
On to the features. There is a randomly triggered Wild Desire feature in the base game – this can be highly lucrative as it turns up to 5 reels into Wild Reels. Look out for the Door Knocker as this is the scatter. Find 5 of these on a payline and a bumper coin payout awaits (200 times your stake).
More importantly, the Door Knocker triggers The Chamber of Spins feature which offers a selection of free spins combined with wilds, multipliers and rolling reels. Once activated there are 4 bonuses based on the slot’s four central characters, Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah.
First is the Amber feature where you’ll be awarded 10 free spins, all of which are subject to a 5x multiplier. Free spins can be retriggered during Amber’s bonus.
Next is the Troy feature which is unlocked after you’ve activated The Chamber of Spins 5 times. Once open you’ll receive 15 free spins, complete with the Vampire Bat Feature which randomly boosts wins with 2x and 3x multipliers.
After you’ve unlocked The Chamber of Spins 10 times, the Michael feature awaits. It awards 20 free spins complete with Rolling Reels. After any successful payline, the winning symbols explode and are replaced by the symbol directly above. As long as the new combination provides a win, you’ll be awarded with an increasing multiplier. It starts at 2x and goes up to 5x for every successful combination. This can be an extremely profitable combination, especially as you don’t lose any free spins with each rolling reeling.
Finally there’s the Sarah feature which comes after you’ve reached The Chamber of Spins 15 times. It awards 25 free spins, complete with the Wild Vine. If it appears on reel 3, it will turn up to 14 symbols into wilds, greatly boosting your chances of a win. Find three or more Door Knocker scatters and respins will be triggered.
On the variance scale, Immortal Romance is on the high side of medium. The features in Immortal Romance are very impressive and they’re matched by the visuals and soundtrack. It may be relatively old but just like its vampire stars, it has aged very well. If you like the Twilight series or Buffy the Vampire Slayer Immortal Romance will be right up your street.
Even if you’re not a horror buff there’s plenty to enjoy. And with top payouts of 12,150 times your stake, the rewards are potentially enormous. Anyway, Immortal Romance is an improved version of the iconic Thunderstruck II according to Microgaming but I like them both as much as each other. Overall, Immortal Romance is one of THE top slots around so well worth playing.
