Since its release in 2012, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance slot has gained a substantial following, due to its Twilight-like contemporary vampire theme and its highly engaging gameplay that involves a strong narrative and a number of memorable characters. While the game might have too much going on for some purists, for the newer generation of online slots players the elaborate bonus features and complex gameplay add to the game’s appeal, as do the high levels of player engagement that it creates through being a 243 ways-to-win slot. Immortal Romance also has a range of very large payouts on offer.
How to play
Immortal Romance is a 5 reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot where wins pay left to right, except for scatter wins which pay anywhere on the reels. There is a fairly limited range of coin sizes – $0.01, $0.02, $0.05 and $0.10 – and players can choose to play between 1 – 10 coins per ‘line’. As there are automatically 30 ‘paylines’ in play on every spin, this means the maximum bet ranges in size from $3.00 – $30.00 (although the game can be played for as little as 0.30 per spin). All wins are multiplied by the coins bet, except for scatter wins which are multiplied by the total bet.

Wild Desire feature
The Wild Desire feature is randomly triggered during both base play and the Chamber of Spins bonus round, where it creates wild reels for 1x spin. The number of reels that become wild can vary, and the Immortal Romance logo symbol also remains wild. It’s not possible to trigger further free spins when the Wild Desire feature is in play.
Chamber of Spins feature
The Chamber of Spins feature is an innovative and imaginative bonus round, as well as being the most lucrative element of the game. It’s a progressive free spin bonus round with four different levels and where, unusually, the level you have attained isn’t lost when you log out, but instead carries over to your next gaming session.
The feature is triggered by hitting 3x, 4x or 5x Lion’s Head door knocker scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Players are taken to a separate screen where they can choose one of four different free spin bonus options, each one named after one of the game’s characters and featuring its own distinct look, sound and gameplay. However, entrance to each character’s free spin round is only possible once the feature has been triggered a set number of times:
Amber: This bonus round can be played after triggering the free spin feature once. Players receive 10x free spins with wins multiplied 5x. Additional free spins can be triggered.
Troy: This bonus round can be played after triggering the free spin feature five times. Players receive 15x free spins that include the Vampire Bats feature, where symbols in a winning spin are randomly turned into 2x or 3x multipliers (up to a maximum of 6x).
Michael: This bonus round can be played after triggering the free spin feature ten times. Players receive 20x free spins that feature rolling reels; these can award consecutive multiple wins from the one spin. Each consecutive winning spin also increases the multiplier, up to a maximum of 5x.
Sarah: This bonus round can be played after triggering the free spin feature fifteen times. Players receive 25x free spins with the Wild Vine feature, where the wild vine symbol randomly turns other symbols wild. In addition, further free spins (1x, 2x, 3x or 4x) can be triggered by hitting 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
The major jackpot prize available playing Immortal Romance slots is 3,645,000 coins (up to $364,500 when betting the max). This is won when all five reels turn wild when the Wild Desire bonus feature and maximum multiplier are in play during the Chamber of Spins feature round.
Further significant jackpot prizes include a payout of 90,000 coins (up to $9,000 when betting the max) for hitting 5x Immortal Romance logo wild symbols when the 6x multiplier is in play during the Troy character round of the Chamber of Spins feature.
In base play, the biggest win on offer is 15,000 coins (up to $1,500) when you hit 5x Immortal Romance logo wild symbols. Overall, Immortal Romance is a low-volatility game that offers players a good number of small to medium payouts on a regular basis, and so is a good choice for those players who always like to feel like they’re in the game.
Much of the success and popularity of Immortal Romance comes from its detailed vampire narrative and the depth to which the characters’ stories are explored. This is in conjunction with the elaborate and complex bonus rounds, which create an entire world that totally immerses its players in a way that very few other online slots are able to do. In addition, the game’s low volatility combined with a potentially huge jackpot is also a significant attraction.
