Through the semi-transparent reels you will see a big hall of an ancient castle where the saga unfolds. Released in 2012, the pokie’s visuals look a bit dated though the engaging gameplay and bonuses aplenty far outweigh that negative side. You will come across a few card ranking symbols from 9 to A, which are designed as if made of stone and are adorned with themed accessories to make them fit the gothic theme. Payouts for card symbols are fairly low, with up to x150 for five A’s or K’s. Other regular symbols depict the four protagonists (Amber, Troy, Michael and Sarah) and award up to x500. Each character has a short back story that you can view clicking a Story button for a related main character.
Bet sizes and top wins
The game targets low-stake players. There are only two coin denominations to choose from, $0.01 and $0.02, and 1 to 10 coins you can pick. Overall, the minimum and maximum bets are $0.30 and $6. Given comparatively low bets, it is small surprise that payouts for combinations of regular symbols are not that high. Aside from winnings that come from bonuses and special symbols, the top three payouts that regular symbols are able to deliver are $100 (five Sarah pics), $90 (five Michael pics) and $80 for five images with Troy. Wilds and scatters that are described in the following sections pay out $300 and $1200 respectively, for five of a kind, provided you play at the maximum stake. Microgaming state that the maximum potential prize that the player is able to win in free spins (in the best case scenario) is $72,900.
243 Ways to Win
This pokie arrangement would be familiar to all fans of Microgaming since the software provider often resorts to this model. In contrast to “normal” pokies based on a payline structure, pokies like the reviewed one pay when 3 (rarely, 2) matching symbols appear consecutively, beginning with reel 1, with one matching symbol for each reel. Application of this scheme leads to the following consequences: 1) winning combinations happen quite often; and 2) winning amounts are normally low or moderate. However, the ways-to-win model opens possibilities for numerous bonus features that are perfectly represented in Immortal Romance.
Let’s start with the most common feature that most pokies of today have. The wild symbol in this game is a simple pokie logo that substitutes for regular images and creates its own combinations, beginning with three of a kind. The wild doubles normal combination values when used as a substitute.
A bronze door knocker in the form of a lion’s head acts as a scatter symbol that pays off the pokie’s largest jackpot (see above) for five of a kind. Three scatters unlock access to the fabulous Chamber of Spins feature so this is one of the symbols you should watch out for.
Wild Desire feature
When you see one or more reels filling with blood, know you are lucky to experience a random feature that turns the affected reel(-s) completely into wild. This feature can occur randomly at any time during the base game.
Chamber of Spins
The Chamber of Spins is a four-level bonus that activates by hitting three scatters. One entry into the bonus adds one segment to the progress bar that you can find by clicking the View Pays button. If this is the first time you play Immortal Romance, you begin with an empty progress bar.
- On the first, second, … and fifth entry you are awarded 10 free spins at a multiplier of x5.
- From the sixth trigger of the bonus, you get two choices: 15 free spins with the Vampire Bats feature OR the previous option with 10 FS’s at x5.
- From the tenth entry into the Chamber of Spins, you get three choices: 20 free spins with rolling reels OR any of the above options.
- From the fifteenth entry into the bonus, you are offered four choices: 25 free spins with Wild Vine feature OR any of the three options listed above.
The pokie saves each player’s progress in the Chamber of Spins and begins the next session at the point where you have left the game last time.
