Released in 2011, Immortal Romance has become something of a cult classic among online slot fans. Telling a tale of dark love and intrigue, you’ll see A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals on the reels – there’s also books, castles and characters Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah.
There’s an Immortal Romance logo symbol which is the wild and rewards you to the tune of 50 times your stake if you manage 5 on a payline – it also replaces all symbols and doubles your win with other symbols.
Wild Desire feature
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. Doing this will result in a payout of 1,500 times your stake.
The Chamber of Spins
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, 3 or more will activate The Chamber of Spins – here, you are offered a selection of free spins combined with wilds, multipliers and rolling reels. Once activated, there are 4 features based on the slot's 4 central characters, Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah.
- Amber feature - 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 giving you 20 free spins in total (with a 5x multiplier).
- Troy feature - 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. Vampire Bats randomly turn symbols into 2x and 3x multipliers which combine to give you 6x multipliers.
- Michael feature - 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.
- Sarah feature - 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 feature. If it appears on reel 3, it will turn up to 14 symbols into wilds, greatly boosting your chances of a win. Find 2, 3, 4 or 5 Door Knocker scatters to win 1, 2, 3 or 4 additional free spins.
Immortal Romance – Microgaming’s best slot
On the variance scale, the Immortal Romance slot is on the high side of medium. The features 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. The potential 6x multiplier from the Vampire Bats feature (in the Troy feature) can result in top payouts of 12,150 times your stake on every free spin! If you want a slot that offers similar features, Microgaming’s Thunderstruck II was the game Immortal Romance was based on (and has been improved). In conclusion, Immortal Romance is one of THE best slots around so well worth playing.
