Avalon Online Slots Game by Microgaming
Avalon, in medieval times, was the name of the magical island, where King Arthurs’ sword, Excalibur, was forged before being presented to him by the Lady of the Lake. According to legend, it is also the safe haven where King Arthur returned to when he was severely wounded in battle. The Lady of the Lake looked after him and helped him recover from his injuries.
This slots game is a 5-reel online game with 20 paylines that pays tribute to the legend of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake. The game was launched in 2006 by Microgaming, an industry leader in the field of casino software, and a high level of excellence in game design can therefore be expected.
The game symbols presented on the reels include the Avalon, the Lady of the Lake, and a treasure chest, which constitute the main winning symbols. The other symbols, which add to the atmosphere, include a number of items from that period of history. They include crowns, coats of arms, brooches, and goblets. There are some high playing cards scattered in between these symbols.
Wild Symbols and Multipliers
The wild symbol in this slots game is Avalon logo, meaning it can be used to replace any other symbol to create a winning combination. The Avalon logo also offers the biggest payout, a significant 3000 coins, when they appear across a payline.
The scatter symbol is the Lady of the Lake, and two of these symbols anywhere on the reels constitute an instant win. If three of these symbols appear anywhere on the machine, 12 free spins are activated, and additionally any associated winnings are multiplied by up to 7x. What is more, when the free spins are activated, the treasure chest symbol becomes a second wild symbol, thereby improving the odds on winning even more.
Bonus Games and Extra Gambling Options
The winning scatter symbols are a combination of the three main symbols, and when achieved, trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game, in which players are awarded 12 free spins. Additional free spins are available while playing the Free Spins Bonus Game. More winning is available with the Gamble Bonus Game, an additional game which becomes available at the conclusion of the Free Spins Bonus Game, as well as any win in regular play. This Gamble Bonus Game permits players to double or quadruple their winnings by guessing the either the colour of a face-down card, or the suit of the card for quadruple winnings.
There are numerous options and variations that are available to Avalon players, including as the ability to customise all the sounds that are used during game play, or shut them off entirely. The Autoplay option can also be used in Expert Mode, and this option allows the player to set the number of spins and to play automatically. There is even a Quick Spin option that speeds up the spin of the reels, thereby increasing the amount of action available in any given time frame.
When playing Avalon, the game settings that can be adjusted include the coin size, or denomination. Similarly, players can change the number of paylines in play, and set the wagering maximum to be bet each time the reels spin.
