The original Avalon title was released in Microgaming’s heyday, when the online casino industry was exploding in popularity and when players were turning to the company that had precipitated that growth. The sequel, Avalon II, was created 6 years later, and with a wealth of new features and significantly better graphics, it is leagues above its predecessor and is a shining example of just how far this developer has come.
Available on Spin Palace, the full name for this pokie is Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail.
Avalon II is a 3D pokie, with some sharp graphics and smooth animations. There are 30 paylines here and the main highlight is the multi-layered bonus round, discussed in more detail below.
You can bet for as little as $0.01 and as much as $0.05 per coin, and whilst this is a non-progressive pokie, there is a maximum jackpot of close to 2.5 million coins available with most stake levels having the opportunity to claim this.
There are a couple of randomly activated features on Avalon II. These include Merlin, who appears at anytime and sends an instant win or a multiplier your way, and the Lady of the Lake, who appears on the third reel as an expanding wild, stretching across the entire reel to boost your winnings.
The multilevelled bonus round is triggered when you land at least three of the grail symbols, and this sends you through many levels, each unlocking something unique. These include free spins, multipliers and instant wins, with the goal being to make it to the final level, to secure the grail and to win big as you do.
This is definitely one of the best Microgaming pokies around, so it is no surprise to learn that this is the pokie Microgaming and many of their licensees promote the most.
