    Immortal Romance... the worst win on a feature?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm wondering who else here plays Immortal Romance? I had $650 in winnings and decided to give max betting a shot

    I've been playing a lot of Immortal Romance on Practice Play and actually rather liked the game, reminded me very much of the popular land based slot San Choy Doa. Seemed to pay good on Practice Play as well.

    So Immortal Romance was my game of choice to max bet on...

    HUGE MISTAKE!!

    Got on Immortal Romance playing $3.00 - $5.40 a spin... it's gambling after all.

    Not winning much on the base game just getting allot of lagging and near hits was relieved to get the feature betting $5.40... i ended up winning less than $15.00 that's less than three times my total bet wow don't spend it all at once

    What I'd like to know is, have other forum members found that to be a regular occurrence on Immortal Romance? Has that happened to anyone else before? Below is a screen shot of my feature...

    You played max bet on (arguably) the
    MG
    slot with the highest variance. Less than 3 times bet for a feature is not common but is not rare either.

    Interesting... Well, all the same I'm going to switch to a different casino (have been using Jackpot City) that dosent use Microgaming software. I'm starting to gather from what I've read that streakiness is common for Microgaming casinos?

    I don't have much intention of withdrawing unless the win is over the $2000.00 mark, I'll end up loosing the money playing the slots anyway. So really wasnt to phased by this, just shocked.

    Playing $5.40 on a $650 balance is risky. You either hit or bust quickly. You need to give yourself 200-300x the spin capacity - $1500 on $5.40 is kinda OK on a High Variance game like this. Getting anywhere between 5x to 20x is common occurrence on Immortal Romance.

    It also boils down to luck - You could hit big within your first 100 spins.

    I feel better knowing that Just so shocked after how the game played in practice mode compared to real mode at Jackpot City. In practice mode it generally seems to be wins galore Would have been okay with 20x but $25.00 is ridiculously low. What are some good Microgaming slots to max bet on?

    Are there any Microgaming slots that have different spin features compared to just 3 or 5 times you're bet? Apart from Thunderstruck 2 (which i don't like) or Immortal Romance, like More Chillies with four game screens or Wheres the Gold where you can choose you're wilds or Tiki Torch where symbols turn wild. I have to say that's the only thing about online slots that turn me off them, they just all seem to feel the same. I know I saw one that reminded me of Sweet Hearts 2 where five scatters can come up three times, but i cant find the game.

    Actually, you won less than ONE times your bet:
    You got $10.80 for hitting the 3 scatters before the free-spins even started. Those free-spins only added $3.42...!

    As a matter of interest, which of the free-spin features did you pick?

    Virtually ALL free-spin features on all slots have the potential to pay out ZERO (or very close to it). But similarly, most also have the potential to give you a very big win as well. That's a choice you have to make before you start playing.
    You could go for a lower variance slot where the chances of good free-spins is better, or a slot with a picking bonus instead, or both.

    A couple of
    MG
    slots have a "bonus win" added to every free-spin so that you never get £0. Can't think of all of them off the top of my head, but Cashanova is one for sure.

    Try something like Glory of Rome - that's a nice low variance slot with a feature which combines free-spins with a "pick a win" - you would have to be mega-unlucky to get a < x10 win from the feature on that.
    Or Gladiator which gives 100 free-spins (Don't be fooled by that though - it's still very low variance).

    Hi,

    I got the Wild Bats feature... and that's terrible, I have never had such a low paying feature on a max bet. Yeah all features do have the potential to pay out ZERO but that hardly ever happens, and certainly not to me on a high bet. Yes slot features can either loose or win big (the chance i took), but that payout was just terrible. Shocking!

    I meant like with free spins, like instead of just times-ing you're win by 3 or 5 they have a different feature, like where you need to collect things for a bigger win, the Secret Admirer game is a good example of this and also a take off of Sweet Hearts 2. Otherwise the features are just a bore, i like fun features. Similar to the Immortal Romance features just not Immortal Romance after that little episode Are there any Microgaming features that are similar to the Wheres the Gold feature by Aristocrat?

    I've won $200 off a $1.00 bet at land based casinos quite a few times... would that even be possible at an online casino? Is this very common with the Microgaming software?

    P.s. Should I stop comparing land based slots to online slots? They seem to be in two totally different categories.

    Yep can be quite common indeed. Can't count the number of times where I've gotten successive features that pay absolute crapola.

    This must be the most strange question I have read in this forum
    Have you even noticed the Winner screenshot thread?

    LOL
    ... i've heard about it but never actually looked at it

    I'm gonna head on over there now.

    Seriously though $15.00 on a $5.40 bet is a common occurrence?
