Those of you who don’t know the legend of King Arthur and his knights in detail could learn a lot thanks to Microgaming’s slot machine Avalon. The Isle of Avalon was the place King Arthur was taken to in order to be healed by the Lady of the Lake, the enchantress. In the online casino game, though, you will see many details that describe King Arthur’s life, treasure and other things related to him.
The Lady of the Lake will be the Scatter symbol in the slot Avalon, and King Arthur's Treasure Chest, lightened by the rays of the sun, will be the Wild symbol. Then, you will see another bonus symbol which will be of great importance, the Avalon symbol, which will be the highest-paying one.
On the reels, you will also see the King’s Crown, a banner with Avalon written over it, a medieval wine glass, and one gold jewel with an emerald stone in the centre. The playing card Royals are fittingly implemented in the game. Basically, Avalon’s theme and symbols really assemble those found on the reels of Excalibur, NetEnt’s slot that also tells one of King Arthur stories. But that’s not strange because many slots feature this epic theme.
The Avalon symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the Lady of the Lake, during the base and the bonus game. The Treasure Chest Wild pays 1,000x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind winning combo, but also substitutes for all symbols on the reels during the Free Spins, except for the Scattered Lady of the Lake symbol.
Three to five Lady of the Lake symbols trigger 12 Free Spins with 7x Multiplier added to your wins in Avalon. In case you land these symbols once again, you reactivate the bonus feature. During the Free Spins, the Treasure Chest and the Avalon symbol can combine to create winning combos.
The bet you place in Avalon will depend on the number of coins and the coins size you want to play with and the number of paylines you want to be active. To calculate your wins, you will need to multiply the number of coins presented in the paytable for your win by the coin size bet.
Now, to review the payout potential, we need to check all the variables. The coin value can go from 0.01 to 1 credit. There are 20 paylines available and 1 to 10 coins per spin. So, the minimum bet for the lowest coin value, for 1 payline and 1 coin, is 0.01. For the highest coin value, 20 paylines active and 10 coins, your maximum bet for real money can be 200 credits.
When it comes to rewards, Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet and added to your payline wins. The payline wins, as mentioned, are multiplied by the number of coins you decided to bet. Therefore, for 5 Wilds you get 10,000 credits for 10 coins, and for 5 Avalon symbols, you get 30,000 per spin. Add to this the Scatter wins and the 7x Multiplier and calculate your potential payouts. Microgaming has set the RTP for this big win video slot at 96.01% which is pretty amazing.
