Avalon is a legendary mystic island in Arthurian legends where the mighty Excalibur sword was forged. It is the place where magic and wonders interweaved, the place where the deadly wounded Arthur was taken after a battle with Mordred. This miraculous place has been brought to the pokie environment thanks to Microgaming, and now everyone can see main characters of the King Arthur legends on the reels, enjoy impressive coin prizes and make use of two wild symbols that often emerge on the screen. Find your way to the mysterious island, through marshes and swarms, to become an ultimate winner of a $20,000 jackpot.

This 5-reel 20-payline video pokie uses a set of playing card values (10, J, Q, K and A) that give away lower prizes for three, four or five matching symbols. The range of winning amounts is x5 to x150, with the highest one being for five A’s. Other regular symbols relate to the pokie theme and include a goblet (x400), a gold pendant studded with emeralds (x500), a coat of arms (x600) and a crown (x800).
As you can see, profits from regular images are not that high ($4000 for five crowns, should you have placed the max stake) but the point is that the pokie falls into the category of low- or mid-variance games. These tend to pay out more often but the payout sizes are fairly moderate. But your best shot at grabbing good wins in this pokie comes from its bonus features to be described below.
The pokie is designed to fit the budget of many categories of players since a spin bet varies between $0.20 and $100. You can choose your preferred wager by selecting the number of active paylines, a coin denomination ($0.01 to $0.50) and the amount of coins (1 to 10). Just recall the old truism that the higher a bet, the more you win, and set the bet size accordingly.
Two wild symbols
Many pokies tend to come with a single wild symbol. This pokie has as many as two wilds, both replacing for normal icons and creating their own winning combos independently of other symbols. But the key distinction between them is that one wild (Avalon castle) appears in all game modes, while another wild (a massive chest) is reserved for free spins only. The Avalon wild is also a jackpot symbol, with five of them gathering on a row paying out $15,000 at max. The Chest wild that becomes active in free spins awards $5000 at max if five of these appear. During a normal gameplay, a chest acts as a regular symbol without any ability to substitute.
Scatter and free spins
Lady of the Lake holding a sword is a scatter symbol that forms combinations when 2 to 5 stop in any position in view. Scatters do not need to fall exactly on any of the 20 pre-determined paylines in order to win. The highest prize you can get for these symbols is x200 times your total bet or $20,000, which is the first jackpot in the pokie.
Hitting three or more scatters triggers a fixed number of 12 free spins. During the feature you get a random multiplier of between x1 and x7 that changes at the beginning of every spin and can lead to massive wins. To recap, the pokie has two wild symbols in a free spin round! And one last thing about free spins: you can retrigger them if 3+ scatters land again during the feature.
In a Gamble feature you are to predict correctly the color or suit of a card. Choosing correctly a color option doubles your winnings, while picking a right suit quadruples your initial win earned in the latest spin. You can gamble up to four times within one gamble round.
