Avalon is one of the slot machines released by Microgaming, and it’s also one of the titles they offer with a theme that is based on the legend of King Arthur. Avalon is one of the elements mentioned in those stories, and that’s what this particular slot machine chooses to be inspired by. The game offers 20 paylines, it has 5 reels and if you get lucky you might walk away with a top jackpot of $20,000.
Betting & Jackpots
You’re going to have to modify up to three different sections in the betting area, before you can get started. The coin value is first, starting at $0.01 and reaching a top value of $0.50. The number of lines is mentioned next, allowing you to pick how many you want to use, up to 20 being available. Finally, the number of coins is selected, between 1 and 10. Your wagers can at most have 200 coins in them, with a value of $100.
The value of the top prize depends on the total bet that you used. The scatter brings you 200 times the triggering bet, which would mean up to $20,000 cash. The next best prize comes from the wild, which pays 3,000x the line bet, or $15,000.
The picture with Avalon on it, a castle visible through thick fog, is the wild element in the game. As a wild, it naturally serves as a substitute most of the time, a way for you to form combinations even if you don’t have all the matching icons. I’m talking only about regular symbols here, since the scatters aren’t influenced by it. Wilds also pay prizes directly, forming combinations which reward the player with 3,000x the line bet.
The Lady of Avalon is the image you see in the scatter, the symbol which will pay the biggest prize, provided that you selected all 20 lines. Have as many as five symbols with her on the reels, and you get paid (up to 200x the bet) and you gain access to free spins as well.
You can get 12 free spins here, with the multipliers going up to 7x. A special extra wild is used, with the image of a treasure chest, capable of substituting for any symbol, with the exception of the scatter.
With the exception of five symbols with ugly poker cards on them, the rest of the symbols used have a theme connection, at least because they look medieval, not necessarily because they belong in the legends of King Arthur.
I’d skip this game because of the low prizes it offers, but feature wise it does look good, especially in free spins mode, where multipliers as high as 7x are possible.
