Avalon is Microgaming’s interpretation of the Knights of the Round Table and more specifically, King Arthur. Avalon is the mythical island where King Arthur’s sword was produced and has gone down in historian folk law as one of the most iconic engineering places in the world.
In terms of gameplay, we get the 5 reel 120 payline slot from Microgaming which is quickly becoming a go to format for online slots. The game includes a number of features that range from wilds, scatters, a bonus round and multipliers to keep you entertained.
Microgaming have also included their gamble feature into the Avalon which allows you the opportunity to increase your winnings by either 2x or 4x the total amount. The game is a simply card pick exercise and if you manage to match the suits of the two cards then you will get 2x your winnings and if you match both the colour and suit, you will get four times your winnings.
You will be following King Arthur in his quest through Avalon to retain his sword. Whilst the medieval theme is something that we actually quite enjoy (geek alert) it’s not something that’s particularly ground breaking within the industry, and as such isn’t one that we think will have an awful lot of legs with the majority of players. That being said, it’s been designed pretty well and it will appeal to people interested in this era, such as ourselves.
We are going to start this gameplay section with a little information on the two scatter symbols that are available.
First up you get the treasure chests which will substitute for all symbols apart from the scatter symbol.
Interestingly, this is the second highest paying symbol in the game with a jackpot of 1,000 coins when you collect five of these symbols in one spin.
Lady of the Lake
The second scatter is the Lady of the Lake symbol and this again will substitute for symbols on winning paylines. This pays out at 3,000 coins when you get 5 of the symbols in one spin. The best thing about the scatters is that they are both used frequently in the free spins game, making it much more profitable than it would have been otherwise.
The scatter games require you to pick up three or more scatter symbols and it will provide you with 12 free spins as a result. Unfortunately, there is no way in which you can get additional free spins from within the game but you will earn a generous multiplier 7 times your total winnings.
