Immortal Creatures Review
Similar to Microgaming’s own popular slot, Immortal Romance, the latest offering from the casino games developer delves into mythical inner animals, the fountain of truth, and even an educational expedition to find them both!
Introduction: The Story
Slots often do not have a discernible background story, but Immortal Creatures has quite an interesting one.Renowned history professor, aka Prof. Cryo, embarks on a journey with his four students to find The Fountain of Truth. Apparently, legend has it that a drink from this magical fountain reveals one’s innermost immortal creature, as well as their greatest weakness.
Ava, Bridget, and Tyler, under the expert guidance of Prof. Cryo, manage to find this legendary place that houses the Fountain of Truth. In an effort to set myth apart from the facts, all four of them drink from the enchanted fountain.
The legends turn out to be true, but only after the full moon makes an appearance, turning them each into their inner animal, and revealing their respective greatest weaknesses.Ava becomes a flying griffin with gorgeous wings, Tyler turns into a hulking golem, Bridget takes the form of an ancient Chinese dragon, and the isolated, but extremely talented professor becomes the lone wolf.
Gameplay: Scatters, Bonuses, and Wilds
As we have come to expect from Microgaming slots, Immortal Creatures has multiple levels of gameplay with a complex bonus system in place and gives each player a good many chances to win from every bet.
On the starting slot screen, all your wins are multiplied by the coins you had bet on each of the ways but scatter wins are automatically multiplied by the total amount staked on that turn. Scatters, as expected, will count as a match, irrespective of their position on the screen.
The Wild Symbol
The wild symbol can mimic almost any other symbol to turn the table in the player’s favor, but it cannot mimic a scatter though. As an added advantage, the appearance of a wild symbol doubles all winnings for that round. The bonus rounds will often have different wild symbols though, so watch out for them.
Getting three or more scatters will trigger one of the four Free Spins Bonus Games. All wins in every bonus round are multiplied by the total bet for that turn. However, the second, third and fourth Bonus Free Spins can only be activated post the fifth, tenth and fifteenth trigger of the first Bonus Free Spins round.
Should You Try It?
Immortal Creatures creates a solid background for the gameplay, through a pleasantly intricate story for each and every gameplay element, which in turn, makes the whole experience a lot more immersive.
The presence of multiple bonus screens further adds to the enjoyment and keeps things fresh. However, it’s the high chance of winning, due to the presence of so many in-game bonuses that will make it particularly appealing to regular players.
