Overview

Immortal Romance by Microgaming is arguably one of the most popular and successful video slots for many years. With an interesting theme, plenty of features, well done art, incredible eerie atmosphere and great payout potential.

Details

The Immortal Romance slot has 5 reels and 3 rows and it consist of 243 pay lines (ways). Most online casinos normally offer the game with a betting range from €/£/$0.3 to €/£/$6. Which is the result of a coin value up to 0.02 and a bet level between 1 and 10. Hence it may appear a little lower to high rollers, but rest assured, the potential for massive wins is there.

If you wish to place a wager, first make certain to adjust the bet size to a comfortable level. Then click the button SPIN. In addition you can set it to auto play by clicking the button AUTOPLAY. Especially important, the auto play will stop on feature trigger.

The Immortal Romance logo symbol is Wild and substitutes all others symbols but the Scatter. Furthermore it doubles your win. The lion emblem is the Scatter symbol. If you land 3 or more Scatters the it will trigger the Free Spins feature.

Bonuses & Special Features

The Free Spins feature, so called called Chamber of Spins consists of four levels, represented by the four main characters. You can trigger it by landing 3 Scatter symbols on the base game.

Amber is the first, that will grant 10 free spins with a multiplier of 5x on every spin. This is the only feature that can be re-triggered

The other three levels/features are locked initially, but will get unlocked sequentially as you enter the Chamber of Spins multiple times. It requires five times for unlocking the next level.

Second feature is Troy, it consists of 15 free spins. In additional if there is a winning combination in any spin it will place 1 or two multipliers on reels 2,3 or 4. If one multiplier only then it can be either 2x or 3x, if two then one is 2x and the other 3x.

Third feature is Michael, it consist of 20 free spins with Rolling Reels. Winning spins can go up to 5x multiplier.

The fourth feature is Sarah, 25 free spins with Wild Vine.If the special symbol Wild Vine land on reel 3 during a free spin then will transform one or more other symbol into Wild Vine symbols as well.

There is another feature called Wild Desire and can arise randomly from the base game. It will turn one up to five reels Wild.

Art Design

The animation and sounds are well done and will please most players, especially those that like somewhat darker themes.

Payout

There is potential for big wins during the base game, especially combination of Sarah symbols with Wilds. During the test we never managed to hit something incredible, though many respectable wins. Wild Desire is mostly misses with up to only wild reels. As for the Free Spins, it looks like the Sarah feature is the most favorable. Free Spins hit frequency is not bad, though. That is every about 155 spins we hit the bonus. Finally, the potential is still there. In the past we had 4 wild reels during the Wild Desire feature for a total win of more than 1000 times the stake.
