Avalon

Avalon by Microgaming is a 5-reel medieval-themed slot with multiple paylines.

It’s said that’s where Arthur’s sword was forged. Avalon is also where Arthur was taken after the Battle of Camlann. Spinners will find wilds, multipliers, free spins and the chance to win a 30,000 coin jackpot in Avalon.

About the Developer

Microgaming is one of the oldest and most recognized online casino software suppliers in the industry. They started operating way before the online betting revolution began. This gives them a sense of knowledge and expertise that some companies formed in the new millennium may lack. However, a lot of emerging online casino software companies have managed to overtake Microgaming because they incorporate new designs, fresh themes that appeal to audiences today. Microgaming always finds itself trying to catch up with newcomers such as Yggdrasil Gaming.

About the Game

The background of the game features a mix of grassland and rocks with two lighthouses standing on either side. It looks like it’s a little after sunset- gorgeous orange rays colour the sky and a vast mass of water stretches into the distance. It’s quite a gorgeous view. The symbols on the reels feature 3D design rather than animated characters.

The mysterious shroud that encompasses Avalon fills this place with wonder and gets you curious on what treasures it holds. The slot symbols match the medieval theme. Most of them are directly related to the legend of King Arthur telling of his bravery and leadership. Symbols on there include; the Broach, Goblets, Coat of Arms, the Crown and Treasure Chests. The usual card values also feature here and they also match the theme. The Q and K have tiny crowns incorporated into the design.

  • Wild symbol- The slot has 2 wilds starting off with the Avalon symbol which replaces all the other icons on the reels except the scatter. The other wild is the Treasure Chest which goes wild during the free spins feature only. It can also replace all the other symbols on the reels except the scatter.
  • Jackpot - The Avalon wild can win you up to 30,000 coins when you line up 5 of them on an active winning line within a maximum bet spin.
  • Scatter symbol- The Lady of the Lake acts as the scatter symbol. It awards you a payout when you use it to form a winning combination and can also trigger the free spins feature when 3 or more of her land on the reels.
  • Free spins- All wins formed during free spins are run against a 7x multiplier. During the free spins, the Treasure Chest and Avalon wild symbols replace all the other symbols except the Lady of the Lake. 12 extra free spins are activated whenever players land more scatters.

The Verdict

Avalon has a great design, but it isn’t amazing. Most slots in this genre have extensive bonus rounds to fit the theme, but that’s something that’s lacking here. However, this Microgaming offering is still fun, simple and offers players a chance of walking away with some decent payouts. The 30,000 coin jackpot for instance is the highest paying win you’ll see in this game if not most games.
