Avalon is a high quality video slot game produced by Microgaming. The theme of this game is based on legend of King Arthur and the mythical island known as Avalon. The island was said to have been the place where King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur was originally forged and where he recovered from his wounds after battle. The graphics, animation and sound effects are all top-quality, giving the game a realistic feeling. The medieval theme is carried throughout the game with the background track playing classic battle music whenever the reels spin.
Medieval 5-reel Slot
The slot setup in Avalon is one many Microgaming fans will be familiar with. The slot machine features 5-reels and 20 paylines. The game itself has a number of bonus features that are fairly standard with most of Microgaming slots, including wild symbols, scatter symbols and a free spin bonus round. On the reels, players will find a host of medieval themed symbols from the King Arthur legend including a treasure chest, King Arthur’s crown, jewels, a wine goblet and the mythical lady of the lake. Completing the reels are the standard high card symbols stylised to blend into he medieval theme.
Avalon Logo Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the Avalon slot game is played by the Game logo itself. In this game, the wild symbol can substitute for standard reel symbols in order to create a winning combination. The only symbol the wild symbol cannot substitute for is the Lady of the Lake scatter symbol. The wild symbol in this game is also the highest paying symbol and is the key to triggering the jackpot. Finding all five symbols across the reels will trigger the game’s jackpot prize of 3000 coins on a standard bet.
Lady of the Lake Free Spins
The Lady of the lake symbol in Avalon plays the role of the scatter symbol. Finding just two scatter symbols on the reels will give an instant win. The scatter symbol is also the key to triggering the free spin feature. To trigger the free spin feature, players must land 3 or more lady of the lake scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Once triggered, players can receive up to 12 free spins with a 7x multiplier. During the free spin feature, the treasure chest appears on the reels and becomes a second wild symbol along with the game logo.
Two Wild Symbols During Free Spins
The treasure chest symbol acts like a standard wild symbol and can substitute for all other standard symbols to create a winning combination. With two wild symbols in play, players have a greater chance of hitting more winning combinations. The good news is that the free spin feature can be re-triggered when in play by finding three or more lady of the lake symbols during play.
Avalon’s Gamble Feature
The Avalon slot game also features Microgaming’s gamble feature. In this game, players have a chance to gamble their line win by clicking the “gamble” button at the bottom of the screen. Players can then double or quadruple their win by either choosing the correct colour or suit of a randomly dealt playing card. If players correctly guess the correct colour, they will double their win. If players correctly guess the suit of the playing card, they will quadruple their win.
