New Slot Announcement Immortal Romance 2!

Yeah true,

I have had a locked on reel 2 and 4 a few times, never 3 and 4 or 3 and 5 or 4 and 5. I did get them land without connecting though in base game and free spins.

I also think Amber is the best one to pick as well. I tested all the features in demo before I played for real and Amber was the best one. Wilds go upto 18X and increase by 3X each win.

As for the scatters stopping the connections, I do not think they will, the connections would still continue and free spins would never trigger until all connections stopped, also only other way that the connections would stop is if other scatters landed on the same reel, so 3 scatters on reel 1 blocking any more connections. This is an absurd thing but yeah bad programming if that could actually happen.

And about wild desire I agree the randomness of triggering was nicer and yes with IMR2 knowing we can trigger it 2 ways does make you realise how long it was since the last time you triggered it. But that said, that could be said about original version as well. That was super rare for it to trigger as well most of the time. So on paper not much difference really. The length of time between triggering will be about the same I reckon.

@dunover - not fully no but they did mess some things up like we have discussed.

One last thing to mention regarding the low paying symbols is that we can easily realise why they made the WD 1024 ways and also added a multiplier to it. Because it would have been very little if they kept it 243 in WD with the new tiny 5oak paytable. They would then probably have had to make it so WD multi could have been increased to 20X or 30X to compensate for the 243 ways WD instead of 1024 or they would have had to make the line pays double or triple what they currently are.

So a kind of stand of really, Also increasing 5oak line pays also decreases hit rate of landing 5oaks as well the higher they pay per 5oak etc. That is also why they added multis to wilds in base game as well. Another compensation for the really low line pays.
I think you missed the point about the WD triggering. It's the constant and regular dropping of one symbol on reel 2 and the tedious spinning of reel 4. Which not only reminds you it hasn't triggered for a long time. But that WD is actually a feature.
In the original, It's easy to completely forget about WD's altogether.

Have you also noticed that if you get a WD trigger symbol on either reel 2 or 4. There are no wins from any other symbols. Not even the smallest 3OAK.

Yes I stated that in my previous post :)

Things I hated, Scatter teases was super scripted, various patterns, same for when you get a blood drop on reel 2, that slow spin on reel 4 is also so scripted. You also can NEVER get a connection/win when that tease happens either. So that eliminates the chance of the blood drop dropping down on reel 4.

The problem is that they've tried to squeeze too much into it. So, consequently, the RTP is split into too many little slices and the paytable is absolutely dire. So, during the majority of the time playing nothing of any note happens

The original could, on occasion, build a balance up nicely, through reasonable sized, regular wins.
But, this is yet another 'win big' or watch your balance dwindle away to zero.

Although that is the same for most of today's slots and even for older slots, now they've been tweaked to follow a similar profile.

This might be good for the providers and casinos in the short term. But it's hardly going to produce the addicts of the future. Who should be, and used to be 'trained' with frequent enough decent wins and withdrawals to keep them coming back for more.
 
It is an interesting slot, but falls flat with the Jackpot Mechanics that most of them have nowadays. Graphics, sound, and presentation is what I expect which is good, but that is it. I played it on PartyCasino and didn't get anything good. A few days later on the sister site Betmgm, I got a bonus 20 spins in and choose Amber. Ended up retriggering twice, but the outcome was 40x. Three spins later...

betmgm_347x_basegamehit_Immortal_Romance2_20240516.png

Yep. A crazy basegame hit of many wilds. Don't have a screenshot of what it hit though! I'll take 347x anyday!

Even with that lucky break, it is far from a "Go to" slot for me.
 
I don't really get that diamond collect thing? I've always got that amber and it have that amount what I had collected. Is it possible that it gives collected amount or example that 50x bet?
 
I finally sat down and had a good 2 hour session on it last night and well lets just say....

Its total shit!

I thought it looked good which I guess it does, But that's were the fun stops imo.

The core gameplay is awful. Little shitty jackpots. Wild desire teases that never land every other spin. Scatters that always walk past on the last spot on the last reel. I played it twice on 2 different casinos 20p stakes 20 quid deposit. No bonus on either deposit. Just shitty £1 jackpot wins to keep you going.

I think the biggest win I had in like 400- 500 spins was like £6. No bonus round no wild desire. Even though both features were teased ever other spin with either 2 scatters, or that wild desire blood scatter.

This game doesn't even compare to the original and is a total waste of time.
Clearly this was made as a cash grab on the nostalgia of the immortal romance original.

Avoid like the plague people!

Sadly the static jackpots or personal game/stake jackpots (like on IR2) built into slots are far too common nowadays. They serve a sole purpose, almost like a supermarket loyalty card - to keep you coming back by retaining some stored, or perceived stored value (RTP) for the next visit. Good for the developer in their rake, good for the casino, restrictive for you the gambler.

Piss poor show all round.

This.

After playing the game for a while, all I got was this feeling of "I am playing a variant of Vikings Go Berserk".

A much less appealing variant, that is.

The key difference between VGB and IR2 is stark.
VGB actually knows how to award the player a bonus, for starters.
It's also a game I would like to (and do) go back to, regardless of the state of the 4 character meters.

And the fact that the Ragnarok FS round CAN see the light of day from a chest on reel 5 as well as a standard feature trigger means that all 4 character meters can be reset more often than one might think.
Which in turn means that the perceived stored value can go back to zero at some point.
At which point you can walk away, never to return.

IR2 does not offer the player such a choice.

And even if you somehow DID hit the Sarah jackpot at beyond 50% of it's potential max (and that looks like a massive stretch), at what cost will it come? It might cost a lot more than net losses equivalent to 1500x your bet just to half fill the jackpot meter. Talk about a pyrrhic victory.

This slot just looks like death by a thousand cuts with no real prospect of its potential being fulfilled.

I think kou is right, it's no better than a cynical cash grab on the name of the once excellent original.

Given the choice, I would choose even the Mega Moolah version of IR over IR2 every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

So after playing this game for hours yesterday on 2 different sites on min bet i managed no bonus round or feature or fun or excitement or profit.

So thought I would torture myself playing it again just to see if I can actually get a bonus, Just out of curiosity to get a feel of the game.

Maybe yesterday I was wrong and its got good bonus rounds?

Yesterday I tried the 94% versions of the game on Video slots and Mr Vegas.
So today tried the 96% version on Bet365.

And what do you know?
it bonuses in like under 10 spins and then re triggers in the bonus round
I'm like oh surely now this is going to go for at least a tenner.

Instead I was served utter dog shit on toast as 15 boring uneventful spins played out doing nothing. Around half way through the bonus round I wasn't even watching anymore as it was that boring my mind just drifted else were and when i looked back it had finished for a whopping 7x mega super win. I just smiled and thought yeah I'm never playing this piece of shit again.

I picked Sarah and whether I would have picked Sandra or Lucy or fucking Benjamin.
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have made any difference to this game being shit or not.

Oh and on a side note, it also RANDOMLY put me right back to my starting balance as well,

Funny how slots do that and have done for years RANDOMLY putting you back to a certain amounts
i.e. starting balance or deposit amount etc

I'm sure hundreds of people on here would agree
yet its always brushed of as you wear a tin foil hat or are seeing patterns.

I haven't made another spin on this game and don't plan to,
If it can be this shit then that really is all I need to see from a game, first impressions and all that..

So yeah avoid like the plague and if the game was any good you would be seeing loads of winning pics on here like when the original released.

The 2 immortal romance games are sadly not even in the same ball park and its a damn shame for such a long awaited release with all the hype around it to suck this bad.

Dead or alive 2 Is how you make a sequel.
 
Huge anticlimax, the sequel is ass. Stormcraft... Jeezo, you ever tried bonusing their games, nope, too difficult. This sequel is for the bin. This had such an opportunity to be a great game, but salt you "unlock" different music band themes, sure I'll keep you coming back for that....

Wild desire 3x and it eventually, finally, produced 1 wild reel for 5x......binned it already. Poorly show Stormcraft
 
I played this the other night for the first time. It has to be one of the most depressing slot games I ever played. Burned around £150. No bonus and mostly dead spins. The original was never very good to begin with, but this is a worse sequel all round and one I'll never touch again.

Dead or alive 2 Is how you make a sequel.
All of their sequels (Thunderstruck WL, Jurassic Park) have been impossible to bonus, which would be fine, if most bonuses were better than 20x trash. I've persevered, my bonus frequency is wrong side of 400 spins and still haven't had a 100x bonus yet, best hit so far was getting Sarah Jackpot at 120x.

They had a chance to create something great buy put all there efforts into production value and mot making an entertaining game, sadly.

I've tried it on a 4 different sites now, and what strikes me as strange is, for first few hundred spins it's chucking a jackpot in every 30 or so. Then they vanish, can't be coincidence the same pattern had shown 4 times now, nothing random about it.
 

GREAT GAME NEVER IN DOUBT!!!!

Well that's going to probably be my one and only dollop of luck on this game.

I still think it's quite dull and there are still too many things in the game that I really don't like.

The slow, laborious teases (straight out of the Quickspin playbook).
The LONNNNNNNG waits for one lousy feature which is probably going to be underwhelmingly hot garbage.
The ridiculously excessive wastage of locking wilds (90% of them show up on dead spins and they have a rather bad habit of appearing when you get a WD or feature tease).
The rather poor features (Troy and Sarah in particular are just TERRIBLE).

It's just too much of a slog compared to other slots for me to want to play it on a regular basis (Bonanza bonuses more frequently than this does for crying out loud).
It almost seems like you have to land a hit on it quickly (like literally within the first 5 minutes) or you won't land a hit at all.

I've had my one good moment on it now, so that's nice. But it's not for me.
One of those slots you maybe should use post-cashout leftovers on.
 
I have done 10000 spins on this at 10p a go and ended up even, the gameplay is predictable, if you hit 2 scatters and a diamond lands the 3rd scatter never comes in. If no diamond you have a chance of hitting the third scatter
 
It's strange though how the Jackpots aren't tied to stake, so you could build them on 10p and once at a decent point (100x for 2/3 of them) increased to say £1 stake and relatively they increase, wonder how they reconcile this in the overall RTP?

I noticed this too and realized an advantage play possibility. Or perhaps the RTP is still less than 100% with 3x Wild Desire multiplier but it certainly is more than 94%. So it would be wise to boost Wild desire feature to 3x playing 10c and then switch to larger bet.

But I tried this in free-play mode (boosting Wild desire to 3x with minimum bet) and hitting Wild Desire seems to become practically impossible with larger bet. In the jackpot wheel it never hits, and the blood drops don't hit either. It seems to be dynamically balanced so that, the more valuable the Wild Desire feature is, the less likely it is to hit.

I understand that they need to balance odds to prevent too high RTP but it does make everything seem biased and you don't know what the actual chances are as the are hidden. If they balance this, what else can they balance? For example lowering RTP if player has been too lucky with bonus features?

For the sake of transparency I would prefer that the odds are known to the player or possible for them to decipher. This kind of slot design just gives player valid reasons to shout that it is rigged.
