This full review of Immortal Romance published on onlinecasinoslotmachines.co.uk is a follow-up to my previous older article “Immortal Romance vs Thunderstruck II“
My first though on playing the Immortal Romance slot was: How could Microgaming hope to outdo the classic follow up to the original Thunderstruck slot?
Well, the answer was to take it’s winning formula, change the paytable and shake the features about! Like Thunderstruck II (TSII), Immortal Romance (IR) has no winlines, but needs 3 or more consecutive symbols for a win anywhere on from left to right. 3x3x3x3x3 therefore means 243-ways to win.
The symbols are 9.10.J.Q.K.A but now we have a dark underlying theme, in fact quite Gothic and in keeping with the whole Immortal Romance notion (think True Blood!). Creepy music brooding characters. We have Alluring Amber, Fang-tooth Troy, Malevolent Michael and Sinister Sarah, the highest paying character. There are only 4 picture symbols, unlike the 6 in TSII.
The pays during the Immortal Romance base game have 3×9 or 10′s as the lowest, paying just 1/6 of a credit. The highest paying symbol is Sarah, of which 3 pay 1.33 x stake. For 5-line wins, the lowest 9 or 10 will pay 3.33 x stake and the highest Sarah a whopping 20 x stake. Sarahs seldom come in over 5 reels without a wild though, so on the base 30p stake Sarahs with a wild pay £12.
Immortal Romance’s higher variance is immediately obvious when comparing to Thunderstruck II: wilds can appear together with the character symbols and not just numbers and letters! It is possible to get 5 wilds and Sarahs in the same spin, paying 65x the base 5-line Sarah win. This will become relevant when we examine the Amber bonus round!
