Avalon is a five reel, 20 payline, online slot from the expert developers at Microgaming. In this, the original Avalon adventure, your goal is to help King Arthur on his various quests, performing heroic deeds and earning a castle-full of treasure into the bargain.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing game. Fans of the game have also said it’s extremely relaxing. Something that’s due, in no small part, to the game’s new age, ambient-style music with its mix of soothing synthesizer and angelic choral sounds.
The graphics, too, are quite crisp and attractive, with symbols such as treasure chests and grails. The treasure chest and Avalon logos both act as wilds. The scatter symbol is the Lady of the Lake, the same mystic figure who bestowed upon Arthur the enchanted sword Excalibur. Land three or more of these symbols and you’ll launch the bonus round with 12 free spins.
This game proved very popular when it was first released and remains so. In fact the game was so popular that Microgaming have subsequently released a sequel, Avalon II which is also well worth a spin.
