Epic Games from Microgaming – A comparison between Thunderstruck 2 and Immortal Romance

A month ago, Microgaming introduced the Immortal Romance online slot game to the public, generating a much needed media exposure. The new game was structured similarly to Thunderstruck II, the landmark slot game from Microgaming which makes comparisons between the two an inevitable thing. If you want to play these games we recommend the famous All Slots Casino or the Platinum Play Casino

Thunderstruck 2 SlotThere are some obvious differences between the two games, particularly the theme. Thunderstruck II is derived from Norse mythology and serves as the sequel to the earlier successful game of the same name. Thunderstruck II includes 4 main characters: Loki, Valkyrie, Thor and Odin. Players can research the net to understand the characteristics of such characters and how they interact in the game. To match the grand theme of mythological beings, the graphics, sounds and animation were done artfully to evoke the theme of epic proportions. On the other hand, Immortal Romance is a modern day story of intrigue, romance and the supernatural. The characters of the story are more contemporary with names like Amber, Sarah Michael and Troy. Being a fresh new storyline, the back story is made available in the pay table itself. If Thunderstruck II dwells in epic events, Immortal Romance is one that is filled with eeriness and mystery, one that is dripping in candle wax and blood.

When it comes to structure, both games use the five reel slot format. Both games offer 243 ways for the players to win. On every game, players of the online casinos in Canada can make a wager of 10 coins on each line with the total bet reaching 30 times the line. The two games have varying coin size requirements. Thunderstruck II allows 0.01, 0.02 and 0.05 while Immortal Romance allows only 0.01 and 0.02. It may seem too limited, but the latter game follows through with some impressive payouts. For Thunderstruck II, its biggest fixed line payout reaches 1000 coins while Immortal Romance offers 1500 coins. Therefore, the highest possible payout for Thunderstruck II can reach 2.4 million coins while Immortal Romance can reach up to 3.645 million coins. Of course, such figures are debatable since it is very unlikely that someone could reach the maximum payout.

Immortal Romance SlotHaving different themes, the symbols used for each game are different. Some symbols represent the 4 characters with some thematic symbols and the so called high value symbols. The game logo is also used as a symbol as the wild card. Scatter symbols is also present, allowing free spins and scatter payouts. Both slots bear the new innovation from Microgaming known as the Pay Table Achievements. A combination created by the player becomes gold at the pay table. No added payout is included. After any spin, this feature can randomly appear and this could turn the 5 reels wild. For Thunderstruck II, this feature is named WildStorm while Immortal Romance calls it the Wild Desire.

One defining feature of these notable games would have to be the free spins. The structure is definitively similar but the names are made different for obvious reasons. In Thunderstruck II, free spins is called The Great Hall of Spins while in Immortal Romance, it is called The Chamber of Spins. For each character, there are 3 unique sets of spins. Each time the spins are triggered, the player has to play through the 3 spins before moving forward. The payouts for each player vary. For Valkyrie and Amber- 5x; Loki and Sara- transform other symbols to wild; Odin and Troy- ravens/bats change the symbols to multipliers; Thor and Michael offers the rolling reels for the free spins.

Both games can now be played at Microgaming Canada online casinos like All Slots and Platinum Play.
