Immortal Romance | A dark tale comes to life
When something works, you run with it and never change it. That is until the public gets sick of it. Microgaming understands this better than most, and proves they like to stick with what works by developing the slot – “Immortal Romance”.
This game is very similar to the popular Thunderstruck II slot that took the online casino world by storm when it was introduced. And to gain even more of a fan following, the theme behind Immortal Romance is driven by the vampire genre.
When you put one of the most played slots together with one of the most popular pop culture themes of the day, you get something that everyone will love.
Immortal Romance is almost like playing Thunderstruck with its unlockable bonus features and characters. But instead of Thor and Loki, you get to follow the lives of Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah. Each character has their own backstory and you get to watch the plot of the game unfold as you unlock new characters.
The addition of an actual story, makes Immortal Romance a very entertaining slot that can played more than once.
But unlike the movie Twilight, there’s more than just a cheesy story with bad acting. This game has depth in the way of free spins, wilds, payout multipliers and more.
Immortal Romance has 243 ways to prove it is better than the rest. Instead of traditional pay lines, it uses the 243 ways to win method. Each spin lets you play between 1 and 10 coins where you can win up to 3,645,000 coins.
And to show off the character’s talents, each symbol has 2 payout levels. Upon playing the slot, you will win the standard pay outs. After each symbol is hit, you begin to unlock higher pay outs. Unlock each symbol and turn them all gold for double pay outs on every symbol.
This slot is best played on larger screens to get the full experience, but plays well on most other platforms. It is available as a flash game which works on all devices including iPads, iPhones and other mobile devices. It’s a versatile slot that likes to show off its talents for sure.

Short game explanation / pros and cons
The best feature is without a doubt the unlockable bonus rounds. The scatter symbol will trigger one of the characters when you get 3 or more. Each 5 triggers will unlock a new character to play, each with new features and bigger bonuses.
The first character is Amber. She awards 10 free spins with all wins multiplied by 5.
Troy is the second character you will meet. He gives you 20 free spins with a Vampire Bat feature. During free spins, the vampire bats can fly on the reels and randomly turn symbols in to a 2x, or 3x multiplier.
Michael is 800 years old if you can believe that. He gives you 20 free spins with a Rolling Reels feature. Consecutive wins during free spins will activate pay out multipliers of up to 5x for 5 wins in a row.
Sarah is the main character and the last one you will meet. She has the most bonuses with 25 free spins and a Wild Vine feature. The wild vine symbol will only appear in this character’s round on reel 3. When it shows up, it will randomly transform symbols in wilds or scatters. This helps to generate more wins, and trigger more free spins. Any time you get 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters, you are awarded up to 4 extra free spins.
In game bonus features
The Wild Desire feature is another addition to Immortal Romance that sets it apart and adds more value. This is a random feature that can turn up to 5 reels into all wilds.
And if that wasn’t enough for you, the Immortal Romance symbol serves as the game’s wild symbol. This will replace any symbol except the scatter and helps make more wins. It will also double any win that is made using the wild symbol.
All bonuses are extremely well done. The Chamber of Spins has become a favorite of mine, as well as for many other slot players. The story lines behind each character are actually well thought out. By clicking on the character in the information tab, you can listen to each character’s personal story. It adds a personal touch to the slot that may not add any real monetary value to the game; it’s a sign of just how much effort and thought went into designing this slot.
Immortal Romance is another example of why Microgaming is one of the top game creators for online casinos. They know what players want, and it’s clear they deliver with games like Thunderstruck and this one – Immortal Romance.
