Some themes are rife for online slot development. Dinosaurs take over an island? Hell yeah! The legend of King Arthur? Yes please!
A man takes his dog for a walk? Well, not so much. But let’s revisit the legend of King Arthur and Microgaming’s effort to recreate and pay homage to that legend in its Avalon online slot. As Wild as times must have been in 6th century Britain, the Avalon symbol takes up that mantle as the game’s Wild. It substitutes for all other symbols, which include the Holy Grail – the object of Arthur’s legendary ongoing quest. We might liken it to finding a shop assistant to speak to when we head into town on a Sunday morning.
Such was Microgaming’s success with Avalon the studio revisited, revamped and re-released another slot on the same theme
The imaginatively titled Avalon II online slot. And while the name might lack something in the creative arena the game-play and bonus features certainly take this medieval adventure series to the next level.
Now ramped up to a 243 ways to win pay system rather than paying across 20 pay-lines. Avalon II now boasts an incredible eight bonus features. Just as Arthur’s legend revolves not merely around the search for the Holy Grail. Microgaming’s Avalon slots series revolves not merely around a single free spins feature. And, like the very first tale of Arthur is as important in framing the remainder of the Arthurian legends. Avalon is as important in our understanding and appreciation of Avalon II.
Both will live long in the memory. We knight you, Avalon of Slots. Arise, Sir Avalon!
