The Wombat says: Knights of the round table! Join King Arthur on his noble quest to win stacks of cash on the reels! Yes, this mythical slot is all based on Arthurian legend and named after the mythical island of Avalon where the famous King died, and where his infamous sword Excalibur was forged. This one of Microgaming’s older games, and you can tell, BUT we still like the look and feel of the slot. It’s a classic like the Thunderstruck slot– another popular game based on the myths of old.
Compare it to one of their later games, like the Big Bad Wolf slot for instance, and you do start to appreciate how things have moved on. It looks pretty good on a mobile though, we’ll give them that.
The character symbols are all mystically made up of ethereal blues and greys that dominate the screen, and then there’s the soundtrack; Celtic pipes, sea shores and wind chimes that are very soothing after a hard days’ spinning…
Avalon is a 5-reel 20-payline slot. Your high-value symbols are all Arthurian-themed and include; the much fabled Holy Grail, a heavily bejewelled ornament, the Avalon crest and a regal-looking crown. Plus the mysterious Lady In The Lake scatter, and a treasure chest. Add to this the usual playing cards – 10, J, Q, K and A – and you’re ready to go. It’s all in the best tradition of our legendary games (try the Viking Fire slot for another slot featuring plenty of swords!)
The Wild in Avalon slot is the Avalon logo itself, and will substitute for any symbol except for the Lady of the Lake, who makes up your Scatter. Multiple Avalon symbols can also create winning combos of their own, but you’ll only win for the highest one that you create on the reels. There’s also another extra Wild – the Treasure Chest symbol – that comes into play during the Free Spins bonus game only.
Scatters and Spin
Get 3, 4 or 5 Lady of the Lake symbols scattered anywhere across your reels and you’ll set off the Free Spin feature, hurrah! Each win bagged during free spins is randomly multiplied between 2 and 7 times allowing you to make really big scoops. But best of all, your Free Spins can also be retriggered during this bonus round.
Click on the Gamble button to increase your loot if you’re feeling lucky. Guess the colour of the face-down card correctly, and your win is doubled. Guess the right suit and it’s x4 your win. However, a wrong guess will lose you the lot… Beware Wombat fans!
Play Avalon on Mobile
This wombat likes to play on the hop, so we’re pleased that Avalon slot can be played on all devices, including mobile and tablet – with all the same features as on your desktop. The only difference being that your 20 paylines are fixed and can’t be adapated.
Microgaming launched its sequel to this game, Avalon II, in 2014, but we can’t help but feel that this original slot is better. In fact, we are very fond of the Arthurian theme, and the decent payout table – think Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but just not as funny! OK, Avalon slot is a bit simplistic compared to more recent games, but it’s still very popular, so our advice is: Give it a go to see a bit of online slot history in action. The only thing missing here is Lady Guinevere…
