I decided to play Immortal Romance video slot since I haven’t played it in ages and I think it’s safe to say that it is one of the most played Microgaming slots at the moment. Many players still regard it as one of Microgaming’s best releases yet so don’t be shy to take it for a few spins.
Although the software developer took its eye of the ball with its newest releases it delivered the goods with this one. For what it’s worth I managed a nice profit of $75 at BitStarz Casino at an average bet of 30 pence per spin which I consider a great omen to usher in the New Year. The amount I’ve won might not sound like much but I think the strategy and tips I’m about to share with you might be worth a penny or two and to top it all it’s free!
‘‘The more popular a slots is the better the return it offers the player.”
Before I continue let me give you a brief overview about the game. It’s a 243 ways to win vampire-themed slots with 5 reels, exquisite graphics, loads of free spins with multipliers, wilds and it pays out a top non-progressive jackpot prize of £121,500.
The 4 main characters are Troy, Amber, Michael and Sarah, each vampire has its own unique free spins feature. Vampire slots are in vogue at the moment, I guess it’s thanks in part to hit blockbuster films like the Twilight Series. By the way, Immortal Romance is based on a dark tale of love and subterfuge. What makes the slots even more spectacular despite its 4 impressive bonus games is that the jackpot of 120,000 coins is won when 5 Lion Door Knocker symbols pitch at the max bet.
It’s a high variance slots with a RTP (return to player percentage) of 96%, it comes with a unique free spins bonus feature and wilds that really spice things up during the base game and free spins. I must warn you though if you intend on playing Immortal Romance make sure you have a sizeable bankroll, it does not take kindly to limited bankrolls since it pays out every 5 to 8 spins.
It’s pointless if you have a top-notch slots and you don’t have a decent online casino to play it at it. The game can be played at PKR Casino an operator licensed by the British Gambling Commission, newbies qualify for a match bonus of up to £1,200 plus free spins while regulars get comps and cash back on losses.
The smallest wager for Immortal Romance is just 30 pence while high rollers can fire away at a maximum stake of £6 per spin. Compared to other high variance slots the total wager per spin is really small.
Let’s just circle back to the RTP of the slots quick (96%), it means that you’ll lose 0.04 cents for every 1.00 you wager. Before you play you must have a target win, if you deposit £50, your target win should be £250. If you’re a bit cash strapped like I was I suggest you start spinning the reels at a wager of £0.3 per spin and increase it to £1.20 if you hit a nice win.
Strategy And Tips
One might think that you don’t need a clear-cut strategy when you play a slot game but believe me you do. To begin with it’s a high variance game so triggering a free spins feature is not going to come cheap. You must work out more less how much it’s going to cost you to trigger the free spins.
In my case the first free spins mode I triggered was the Amber free spins feature. It took me 120 spins to trigger it (120x£0.30=£36) with a bankroll of £50, as mentioned previously I won £75 here or a win of 250x my stake which is sublime. The secret sauce of the slots is to trigger the free spins, start with smaller bets and gradually increase them as the cash starts rolling in.
I had a few dry spins during the free spins. It awarded me 10 free spins with multiplier wins of up to 5x, this feature is triggered by 3 or more Lion Door Knocker scatters.
More free spins can be won (re-triggered) should another 3 scatters appear on the reels. I firmly believe if a slots paid out well chances are pretty slim that it won’t do so again. As a result I cashed out my profit of £75 (£50-£36=£14) using Neteller, the funds hit my account after a couple of hours.
In summary. During the main game the wilds (Wild Desire) really work wonders, the more you get (preferably 5) from left to right the better the cash prize. If you’re up on your bankroll by at least 30% increase your stake for the next 10 spins or you can cash out your initial bankroll and just play with your wins. It’s not impossible for 4 wilds to pop up giving you a win of 400x your stake!
Triggering any free spins mode in Immortal Romance can be laborious and expensive to boot since you have different chambers to contend with and then there’s the RTP. Even if you fail to trigger the free spins you can still win big if 3 or more wilds appear. Without a shadow of a doubt Immortal Romance ranks as one of my favourite Microgaming games of all time.
