The Immortal Romance slots game proves once again that the brightest, most creative minds in online casino game software design are all working for Microgaming. The theme and storyline may be cheesier than a fondue warehouse – Young vampires in love à la Twilight? That’s *so* 2009! – but you gotta love the neo-multimedia techniques used in an actual narrative.
As stated above, Immortal Romance is about young(ish) vampires in love – and probably demonstrating poor thespian skills as well. On big wins (and sometimes at random) throughout the course of the game, a very clever textual element features within the gameplay. Or, as the excited game instructions proclaim, “Hidden truths will be revealed as the saga unfolds.” Putting aside the greater aesthetic question of whether truth may be found in fiction (not to mention misuse of the words “saga” and “unfolds”), this is an incredibly engaging way to present the backstory of a 5-reel video slot.
We won’t include any spoilers here – as some other slot game review websites do, by the way, and for shame! – but suffice to say that the plotline of the Immortal Romance slot is surprisingly intricate. Someone at Microgaming evidently still cares about story…
Of course. No matter how fanciful the folks at Microgaming can get with their games, they always manage to maintain classic slot machine-style play.
Immortal Romance is a 5-reel, “243 ways to win” slots games. The symbols give hints at the story, with the highest-paying symbols represented by the Romeo and Juliet (perhaps it’d be more appropriate to call them Spike and Buffy or Edward and Bella) of the piece. This couple looks decidedly Melrose Place.
The lower-paying symbols are filled by A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 – Hey, when you live forever, you’ve got a lot of time to fill. So start dealing and let’s play some cards!
The “Wild Vine” feature is randomly won bonus – another extremely engaging element alongside the narrative device – that turns a potentially insane amount of the game screen wild after a given spin. As many as four full reels can be turned wild for some bloody (get it?) massive payouts.
By the way, no, we don’t get the obsession with vines, either.
Yes. Land three or more scatters (the game logo icons) to enter the free spins bonus round. In the Immortal Romance slot’s gameplay, four levels of bonus free spins round exist, with the player tasked with “unlocking achievements” in the typical fashion of modern video gaming. The first such bonus round earns 10 free spins at 5x; subsequent bonus rounds similarly feature some combination of spis and bonus multiplier and/or other features.
The player is granted a choice between the four different bonus free spins round once he/she has played through all four, so registration at an online casino in order to track progress might be necessary. Or one could simply play a single marathon session – at night, though, of course…
