After the mainstream success of the first Avalon slot machine, which garnered hugely favourable reviews from both slot players and industry experts, there has been talk of a sequel for some time.
Now the talking is over as Microgaming have announced the release of the Avalon II video slot game across their range of casinos this February, and where else to try the latest slots for free than here on Free Slots X?
Avalon II is themed on the heroic quests of the fabled King Arthur and his Knights of the Round table as they seek to restore justice and rule to the land of Camelot. Your quest in Avalon II is to aid the King as he attempts to seek out the one artefact that can bring peace to the lands, the Holy Grail.
This 5-reel slot offers up to 243 different paylines on every spin, but from a minimum cost of just 0.30, this is a game that will appeal to the slot novice or smaller stakes player, as well as the more experienced and high rolling slot fan.
To help Arthur on his quest, you play through the excellent base game, where the wise wizard Merlin appears randomly throughout, gifting the player an immediate cash prize or increasing the prize they have won by adding a random multiplier bonus to the win.
Land three or more scatter symbols and you’ll access the first of the eight sub-games that make up Arthur’s quest. Your Trail Map will detail how far along the quest you have come and it features some of the most famous names from Grail legend, including the benevolent White Knight, the formidable Morgana’s Keep and of course, the guardian of the Grail, the Black Knight.
Defeat him in the penultimate round and you take your reward by spinning the Wheels of Avalon to earn a top prize.
With a massive 2,400,000 coin jackpot available, this is one quest where one lucky knight really can bring home riches fit for a king!
