Immortal Romance Slot
|mmortal Romance is a brilliant but rather oddly-themed slots games from Microgaming. It has 5 reels and the maximum 'all ways pay' number of paylines at 243. It's hard to know where to place this game within the pantheon of slots. The theme is romance, but at a very gothic level. The game seems to be centred around the secret trysts of two moody couples: Amber (a witch) and Troy (a vampire), and Michael (a professor – albeit a ridiculously young one) and Sarah (a super-sexy doctor). The ideal of this gothic game seems to be to get these couples together and let the good but gloomy times roll.
The four lovers mentioned above are joined on the reels by playing card values nine through to ace. You only have two choices of coin size – 0.01 or 0.02 – but you can choose how many coins you want in play for each spin from one to ten. All possible paylines are in play at all times, so that gives you 243 ways of winning. Your coin size is multiplied by thirty for each spin, and again by the number of coins you are wagering with. When you're happy to seek some gothic glory, hit that Spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts in normal play start at x5 for three nines or tens, all the way up to 1,500x for five 'Immortal Romance' logos.
The extra features begin with that logo we've just mentioned. It acts as the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols. Any win containing a wild symbol is doubled.
The 'golden lion door knocker' scatter awards entry into the 'Chamber of Spins'. You need to land at least three anywhere on the reels to gain entry. Each time you enter the Chamber of Spins you sequentially unlock further bonus features. You have a choice of four bonus games, depending upon how many times you've entered the chamber:
- Amber – ten free spins in which all wins are multiplied by five. Free spins can be re-triggered.
- Troy – fifteen free spins with the 'vampire bats' feature. The bats randomly turn symbols into x2 and x3 multipliers. The multipliers can work together to create 6x multipliers.
- Michael – twenty free spins with 'rolling reels'. Winning symbols vanish and are replaced by new ones. Each successive win increases a prize multiplier from 2x up to a maximum of 5x.
- Sarah – twenty-five free spins with the 'wild vine' feature. If the 'wild vine' symbol lands on the central reel it can creep along the reels and turn other symbols into wilds. In addition, every time more than one scatter appears on the reels you are awarded more freebie spins.
With its multitude of features, and a top prize of a staggering 3,645,000 coins, Immortal Romance is truly one of Microgaming's most excellent slots. We always like slots with 243 ways to win as it makes the slot really easy to play, plus having so many different features is a real bonus. Why not take Immortal Romance for a spin – you're almost guaranteed to fall in love!
