Immortal Romance Review
Widely regarded as Microgaming’s masterpiece, this tale of vampire romance might seem like something ripped off the pages of “Twilight” saga or any TV show that in recent years popularized the theme. It’s not like that, however – Immortal Romance holds many great secrets and features that make it unique in the sea of overproduced (and often mediocre) sameness. So much so that we even deem this one the most compelling storyline yet in online slot games – with other elements such as graphics and bonuses being just as worthy.
In so many ways, this five reel game is slot players dream come true. It boasts numerous, exciting bonuses; it has 243 paylines (meaning winning combinations are landed from left to right, in no particular order on reels) and an atmosphere so immersive and authentic it had us glued to our chairs for quite a while. The payouts in this game are potentially very generous, so it’s not just one of those games where impressive visuals compensate for the lack of significant cash. High-value symbols in this game are story’s characters: Amber, Sarah Troy and Michael (each of them possessing special abilities, as we’ll soon see). As well as a parchment of some kind and an enormous mansion, while scatter and wild symbols are a golden door knocker and a game logo, respectively.
It is no use writing about graphics and sound separately because in an instance of Immortal Romance those two work so well together and compliments each other in such a seamless way that they are inseparable. Tremendous work by developer’s team, the reels are exquisitely atmospheric (there are statues of angels and gargoyles in the background, and scattered particles of sunlight beaming through). Symbols and characters are painted beautifully, and for that Gothic par excellence, there’s the lovingly composed score, somber and gentle, that climaxes with each feature unlocked and big win achieved.
Bonus features truly are something to look forward to in this case. For starters, up to five reels can and will randomly turn to wilds and this will grant you a free spin with those stacked, making it possible to make some big winnings right off the bat (this feature is called Wild Desire). But, that’s just the warm-up: the real deal begins once you collect three of more scatter symbols.
This engages The Chamber of Spins and it really is vast and significant as the name suggests. Each time you enter it, you will unlock one of the four characters and each of them has their own Free Spin game, accompanied by unique visuals and music. First, comes Amber’s Free Spin game, which grants you 10 free spins with 5x multipliers. Next up is Troy, one of the two male vampires in the game, with 20 free spins and random multipliers. Then comes Michael’s 20 free spins and rolling reels, and finally we have Sarah, the ambitious scientist’s 25 spins with replicating wilds.
A compelling storyline, a near-perfect flow, flawless surprise elements, attractive visuals – one could say this slot game has it all and it’s no wonder why slot players everywhere are raving about it. Add a ravishing jackpot to this list and what you have is a grade A video slot game. Microgaming, we applaud you!
