Couldn't get enough of the first instalment of Avalon? Dying to see what happens in the sequel? Well, even if you're not one of the die-hard fans of one of Microgaming's most popular and enduring slot machines, Avalon, you are sure to enjoy Avalon II. This medieval Arthurian fantasy-themed game offers up 243 win ways, a regular wild, an expanding wild, a scatter, a grail bonus, and a Merlin bonus. Sound intriguing? Read on then.
Avalon II is strong in both the features department and the graphics department. In terms of the presentation, what's offered is visually pleasing and presented in a gorgeous 16x9 widescreen aspect ratio to give you a touch of the cinematic effect. The music is great, but the effects are only decent at best. There are, however, lots of cool breaks and segues scattered throughout the playing experience, in which you may well encounter Arthur, Merlin, Guinevere, Morgan, Merlin, The Black Knight, and The Lady of the Lake, all well known characters of the Arthurian legend.
In addition to the all of the cool features mentioned above, gamers should know that as you play you "progress" to various areas of the quest and the wider kingdom. Each area brings with it it's own special bonus. For example, making it to Morgan's Keep will win you a hefty 20 free spins. Get to the Whispering Woods for a pick-em bonus, and so on.
First, you must learn how to wield a sword and ride a horse so as to go toe-to-toe with Merlin and the gang. No, that's not true. All you really have to do here is determine your bet level and push the "spin" button. With the 243 win ways feature enabled there is no need to select the number of paylines or the coins wagered per line.
Enjoy the journey to Avalon (again)!
