The Avalon online video slot is one of Microgaming's best medieval-themed slots. It is a 5-reel game with multiple paylines that's based on the Arthurian legend. According to the legend, Avalon is the place where Arthur's sword was forged, and it is also the place where he was taken to heal after the Battle of Camlann. It is of course the mysterious shroud that encompasses this location that makes Avalon a place of wonder and worthy to backdrop an online slot.
As you would expect from a slot based on King Arthur's legend, most of the symbols relate to the legendary tales that tell of his valor and leadership. On the reels of Avalon, you will encounter the Coat of Arms, Goblets, the Crown, Treasure Chests, the Broach, and the generic poker card values that have been creatively crafted to match the theme.
There are 2 wilds in this slot and first up is the Avalon symbol that substitutes all other symbols on the reels apart from the Lady of the Lake. The second wild is the Treasure Chest that becomes wild only during the free spins feature; it also substitutes all other symbols apart from the Lady of the Lake to complete winning payouts.
Win up to 30,000 coins with the Avalon wild symbol by lining up 5 of these symbols on an active payline within a max bet spin. This is without question one of the highest paying winning combinations that you're likely to see not just on this game, but on most other online casino games as well.
The Lady of the Lake is the scatter and on top of awarding you with scatter pays, she will also activate the free spins feature whenever you have 3 or more of her symbols appearing on the reels. A 7X multiplier is also awarded and applied to all wins incurred during the free spins feature. During this bonus round, the Avalon and Treasure Chest symbols substitute all other symbols apart from the Lady of the Lake. Twelve additional free spins will be triggered whenever you hit 3 or more scatters.
The game has an accommodative betting range that runs from 0.50 to 100 coins, making it ideal for both mid-limit players and high rollers, alike. If you're like us and you enjoy playing penny slot games, this game certainly qualifies as one of the top penny slots available online.
Avalon might not really 'wow' you with graphics and extensive bonus rounds like some other Microgaming medieval themed slots such as Xcalibur, King Cashalot, or King Arthur, but it still is entertaining, simple, and offers a real chance of walking away with some good payouts.
