Immortal Romance is a classic online slot game from Microgaming. The original game launched almost a decade ago in December 2011 and quickly became popular with online slots players all around the globe. In May 2020 Microgaming decided to launch a revamped version of Immortal Romance to bring it in line with what online slot players expect from online slot games today. The main update was changing it to HTML 5 format so that the game could be played on mobile and tablet devices. However, while they were at it, Microgaming also made some changes to the game features too.
The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with 243 ways to win. Bets start from just £0.30 per spin and reach a maximum of £30 per spin. The game features multiple free spins bonus rounds, generous multipliers, and superb graphics, albeit with a retro look and feel. The jaw-dropping highlight has got to be the chance to win the maximum jackpot of 12000x your bet which works out as £364500 if you’re betting the maximum. The narrative running through this slot game is a tale of forbidden love in a gothic underworld. We highly recommend that you don’ miss out on this classic top-rated slot game.

Graphics and Theme
Take one look at the screen, and you will notice the dark, gothic and gloomy feel that Microgaming has managed to evoke with their updated graphics. The backdrop to the reels is a wall of a grand stone cathedral, complete with stain glass windows, gargoyles, and stone statues. Two beams of moonlight enter the screen from the top corners to light up the room and reels. The shimmering particles floating in the moonlight give the screen an interesting dynamic effect that draws your attention to the reels. The reels themselves are encased in a decorative stone border, and the symbols carry on the gothic theme while telling a story of murder, mystery and love.
The soundtrack is a slow, repetitive and almost romantic song with definite dark undertones that build suspense. It features instruments such as the piano, violin, classical guitar and some quiet percussion instruments. When you hit spin, you will hear the noise of a heartbeat, and the reels flicker almost silently before they come to a stop one by one. When you land a winning combination the sound of two symbols crashing together will fill your speakers. Finally, during the free spins round, a new song kicks in with a female vocalist.
Immortal Romance symbols
The low paying symbols in the game include the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The game will award a maximum of £150 for five of a kind Aces. The high paying symbols include a love letter, a mansion, and four character symbols. The female in the red dress is the most valuable. She is worth a maximum of £500 for five of a kind.
There is also a wild symbol worth £1500 for five and a scatter symbol worth a max of £6000 for five of a kind.
Wild symbols can substitute for any symbol except for the scatter to make winning combinations. If a wild symbol is included in a winning combo, it will double the value of the win. There is also a randomly triggering Wild Desire feature which can turn up to five reels into wild symbols at any point during the game.
The Chamber of Spins
To enter the chamber of spins, you will need to land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. There are four free spins games available, but you have to enter the chamber multiple times to unlock the more valuable free spins round. Here’s what you get from each round and how to unlock them:
- Amber – Available from the first trigger, you get ten free spins, and all wins are multiplied by 5.
- Troy – Available from the 10th trigger, you get 15 free spins, and vampire bats will randomly turn symbols into 2x or 3x multipliers. A maximum multiplier of 6x can be applied to any win.
- Michael – Available from the 10th trigger, you get 20 free spins and the rolling reels features will award consecutive wins with 2x, 3x, 4x and then 5x multipliers.
- Sarah – Available from the 15th trigger, you get 25 free spins, and if the special vine wild symbol lands on reel three, it will turn random symbols into wild symbols. If you land two, three, four or five scatters during this round you will retrigger one, two, three or four additional free spins.
Game How to Play
The first thing you’ll need to do when playing Immortal Romance is select your betting value which can be between £0.30 and £30 per spin. Then you need to hit spin manually or use the auto spin feature and watch the symbols fly across the 5×3 set of reels. All wins across the 243 pay lines are awarded when symbols land on adjacent reels from left to right, except for scatter symbols which payout regardless of where they land. The gigantic jackpot of 12000x your bet can only be achieved during the free spins bonus round.
