If you’re a lover of myths and legends you might have guessed that the Microgaming slots game, Avalon, took its inspiration from the Avalon mentioned in the legend of King Arthur. It was the island where Excalibur was forged and where King Arthur himself was taken to rest after the Battle of Camlann and his final resting place. There has been much speculation about Avalon over the years, with several different places being put forward as suggestions as to where it could be, if in fact it really did exist.

The Wild symbol in this game is the Avalon symbol. This substitutes for every other symbol, except the Lady of the Lake Scatter symbol, to try and help you get some winning combinations.

The serene looking Lady of the Lake is the Scatter symbol in Avalon. You just need two of these to get a payout, but three is better as this is the minimum number needed to trigger the Free Spins bonus game. In this you’ll receive twelve free spins, but even better than this is the fact that all wins will be multiplied by a random figure, either 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7, which could lead to a bumper win. During the free spins round you can win yourself another twelve free spins by getting three Scatter symbols again. In the Free Spins bonus game the Treasure Chest also acts as a Wild symbol, increasing your chances of getting a winning payline.

After every win you get you can play the Gamble Bonus game. This is the typical Microgaming feature where, if you want to, you can gamble your winnings by either guessing the suite of the next card or the colour of it. A correct guess of the suite will quadruple your winnings and guessing the colour correctly will double your winnings, but an incorrect guess will leave you with nothing. You can gamble up to five times or at any time you can collect your winnings and return to play the game.

As Avalon was inspired by the legend of King Arthur it is only fitting that several symbols from the legend and time period feature in the game, such as a coat of arms, a crown, a goblet and an ornate brooch, all giving it a noble medieval feel. This game looks good and is also a great game to play. We particularly liked the fact that the Free Spins bonus game has two wild symbols, as well as the possibility of multiplying any wins by x 7.

The percentage payout for Avalon is 96.01%.
