Avalon

The Avalon Slot is a fantasy-themed online video slot from Microgaming. It is a 5 reel slot game and has twenty pay-lines. Some of the spectacular special features include scatters symbols, wilds and a top jackpot of 3,000 coins.

The Avalon slot theme centres around the Arthurian legendary Isle of Avalon. So alongside the mysterious, medieval symbols of the Chest, Crown, Silver Goblet, Broach, Coat of Arms, and Lady of the Lake, sits an ethereal soundtrack. It will help spur you on your journey towards hidden riches.

As far as the graphics go, it’s clear, sharp and colourful; however, it has been on the online slots scene for some time now (2006 to be precise). It is by no means the most visually impressive slot we’ve seen from Microgaming but, as they say, sometimes the golden oldies are the best…

The betting range at the Avalon Slot runs from 0.01 up to 0.50, and the max wager is 200 coins.

Of all the ‘standard’ symbols, the Crown pays out the most (from 5-800), followed by the Coat of Arms (20-600). Then Broach (10-500) and the Silver Goblet (10-400). However, it is the game’s two wild symbols, and one scatter symbol that could be the real key to a fortune worthy of a king.


Wild Symbol:

There’s only one wild symbol in the Avalon Slot game’s base mode, and it’s represented by the Avalon Logo. This symbol not only substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter, but it can also form a winning combination in its own right. Two, three, four of five of these will payout 10, 150, 1,000 or 3,000 respectively.

Bonus Wild Symbol:

If the bonus round triggers, an additional wild symbol will come into play. The Chest substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. If two, three, four, or five appear to form a winning combination, you will receive 5, 50, 150, or 1,000 respectively.

Scatter Symbol and Bonus Feature:

Quite fittingly, it’s the Lady of the Lake who’s used as the Avalon slot game’s scatter symbol, and if three or more appear on the reels, the free spins feature will be activated. It will instantly award you twelve free spins, which can be re-triggered during the bonus round.

Any wins will be multiplied by up to 7x depending on how many scatter symbols triggered the bonus feature. With both wilds (the Chest and the Avalon logo) appearing in the free spins round, the possibilities of spinning several lucrative combinations is pleasantly high.

Gamble Feature:

As with any good Microgaming slot, you can choose to ‘Gamble’ your wins if you so choose. To do this, you’ll need to click the Gamble button while it’s flashing, and then choose a card colour (red or black) or a suit. If you correctly guess the card colour, your win will be doubled, and if you get the correct suit, your win will be quadrupled.

Our Verdict:

In our opinion, the Avalon slot offers rich and generous payouts. Plus, with a multiplier of up to 7x on offer during the free spins round, you could easily turn a £20 payout into £140. It certainly is a classic and one that keeps on bringing players back to its shores time and time again. So why not pay the Isle of Avalon a visit and see if your fortunes lie in the ethereal land of Arthur, Merlin and the Lady of the Lake?
