Avalon is a 5 reel non-progressive 20 payline video slots powered by Microgaming software. It features a host of scatters, multipliers, wilds and offers a total jackpot payout of 3000 coins.
Although Avalon is a relatively old game it’s still one of the most popular video slots around. It’s based on the legend of King Arthur, the knights of the round table and his infamous sword Excalibur. Avalon is a mystical British island where Excalibur was forged. Legend has it that this is the place where King Arthur recovered from his wounds after his epic battle against the evil Mordred. The slots is set during medieval times. Symbols that appear across the reels are The Lady of the Lake, Chalice, Treasure Chest and Jewel. Card symbols from 10 to Ace are crafted in a mystical manner further complimenting the game’s theme.
If you have a limited budget you can wager from as little as $0.01 up to 50 cents. Avalon offers a maximum jackpot payout of 3000 coins, if you hit five Avalons on a single payline. The chest is the second largest jackpot and offers a payout of 1,000 coins.
Avalon is the wild symbol. It simply means it replaces all the other symbols, except the scatters to form a winning combination. When the Avalon symbol appears in an active payline it also offers the biggest payouts. When you land five Avalon symbols in a row, it constitutes the maximum jackpot and pays out 3,000 coins. In the base game it offers a jackpot payout of $15,000 and a total jackpot payout of $105,000.
The Lady is the scatter symbol. She is also very generous. If you hit three or more lady symbols the ”Free Spins Bonus” feature is triggered. Now this is where it becomes interesting. The scatter also carries a multiplier. When five ladies grace the reels, you will receive a handsome payout of 200 times the coin bet amount. The chest constitutes the Wild Symbol in the Free Spins Bonus Game.
The ”Free Spins Bonus” game is triggered when three scatter symbols (The Lady) appear in sequence, you will receive 12 free spins for your efforts. An added feature is the Gamble Bonus Game. Here you can either double or quadruple your winnings after each win or once the Free Spins Game ends. In this section of the game you’ll see a card that is face down. You’re presented with two options. The first option, you must guess the card’s colour (black or red) or the card’s suit (heart, spade, club or diamond). If you correctly guess the card’s colour, winnings are doubled and if you guess the right suit winnings will be quadrupled.
In summary. There’s a couple of aspects that makes Avalon a winner irrespective of its age. The game’s graphics are not over the top, it offers an Auto Play feature via Expert Mode and the Gamble Bonus game offers regular payouts albeit small. However, at times the game can be a bit complicated and its jackpot payouts could have been better. Avalon offers a Return to the Player of 96%. The slots is not as volatile as some of the other Microgaming games.[addtoany]
