Avalon was one of Microgaming’s first successful titles. It looks a little tame by today’s standards and the features are also a little disappointing, which is why Microgaming released Avalon II a couple of years ago. This is much better than the original and at the time it was arguably the best game on their roster. Even today, Avalon II is still one of the best Microgaming titles out there, leading the way on casinos like Royal Vegas.
The full name of this pokie is Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail, which means little to begin with but will come into play during the main feature. The 3D graphics are stunning, sharp, polished, and everything you would expect of a modern pokie that receives as much praise as Avalon II does. There are also some impressive animations on this pokie, which really bring it to life.
This game works on a series of credits/coins, which you set the value for. These cost as little as just $0.01 each, a value you can increase to $0.05, before deciding how many coins you want to play per spin. There is a huge in-game jackpot on this pokie, coming in at close to 2.5 million coins, so bear this in mind when setting the value of those coins.
There are a few features in this pokie, including one that is randomly activated and will throw a multiplier or win your way, and one that turns the third reel wild. The main bonus round sends you on a quest for the grail. This is a big round, one that takes a lot of time to play and one that is incredibly fun and rewarding. In fact, we would go as far as to say this is one of the best bonus rounds we have played in recent years, and one you need to experience for yourself.
We love this pokie, which is a surprise considering we never really enjoyed the first game in the series. The graphics are much better though and there is also much more going on. This is easily one of the best games Microgaming have developed, and one we would definitely recommend.
