Surely Immortal Romance is what we’re all after? If we haven’t found it already, of course. It’s unclear where grouting the tiles or fixing the toilet comes into this view of eternal romance. But that’s probably why Microgaming ignores that side of love. They focus instead on a grungy, rocky, Buffy The Vampire Slayer-esque aesthetic that will have us pining for our Great White Buffalos.
The Immortal romance Slot, a five reel, 243 Ways vampire love epic. Offers level-based Chamber of Spins free spins bonuses that take us through the gothic narrative on the edge of our seats and our thumbs at the ready.
Gothic, grungy, giddy. The Immortal Romance slot guides us through this breathless epic via this tale’s main characters – Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah – that make up our high-paying symbols. Gothically-styled 10s through Aces do the trick as our low-payers, while Microgaming’s 243 Ways to Win pay system means that any adjacent symbols of three or more score wins, regardless of reel position. A soft, mysterious soundtrack accompanies our game-play. Sounding all the while like it might be an intro to a 14-minute Meatloaf rock epic, the soundtrack does indeed burst into life when we hit enter the Chamber of Spins.
And what of our WIld symbol? The Wild duties are fulfilled by the Game Logo, which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters and doubles every win to which it contributes. Our desires run beyond scoring big wins, though. The Wild Desire feature activates randomly, turning up to five reels completely Wild. Now that sounds like something every online slots fans would desire.
Not only will we enjoy the randomly-triggered Wild Desire feature, but our romance catches fire when we enter the Chamber of Spins. Landing three or more Scatters launches the feature, and it is Amber who first takes us up the free spins backstreets. Amber grants us 10 free spins with a x5 multiplier. Upon the fifth triggering of this feature our romantic urges will now focus on Troy. Troy weighs in with 15 free spins and fulfils our darkest vampiristic fantasies with his Vampire Bats feature. Troy sends his bats onto the reels to bestow x2 or x3 multipliers, which can amount to a cumulative maximum of x6.
And so to Michael and Sarah. Michael ups the ante in this four-pronged love square by bringing his Rolling Reels™ with him for his 20 free spins. Microgaming regulars will recognise the consecutive win multipliers – up to x5 – that are the welcome nucleus of the Rolling Reels nuance. We will unlock Michael’s bonus upon the tenth triggering of the bonus round, while we only have front door access to Sarah when we trigger the bonus feature for the 15th. But, she’s well worth it. Her 25 free spins bring with them a Wild Vine feature. Appearing on reel three, the WIld Vine randomly shoots other Wilds onto the reels. Landing between 2-5 Scatters triggers extra free spins to keep our romance with Sarah blossoming on.
Microgaming has gone to town in Immortal Romance. The Isle of Man’s development team clearly enjoyed making this online slot, giving an intense backstory to each character that we can read on each character’s page in the Pay Table. The level-based bonus system and generous multiplier promises make this a romance that we will be in for the long haul.
