The layout form of 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed pay-lines. To play it on desktop and mobile devices, you can choose wagers from 0.20 to 50 credits. Its return to player rate is 95%. The main attraction in Avalon: The Lost Kingdom is the free spins game. It includes 3 extra boosting features. There is an Excalibur Wild mode that adds extra wilds on several consecutive spins.
The Faithful Wild mode lets you choose one of the three main characters to act as a wild. Additionally, BGaming included a multiplier with random and varying value. It can be from 2x to 7x on each free spin. Thanks to it, a full screen of King Arthur symbols with the help of the maximal multiplier of 7x gives you 5,600 times your stake. This makes £280,000 when playing with the highest one and is the jackpot in the slot.
The game is set on a misty place with a large rock with stones as the area for the symbols to land. The colour tone is grey. You will see elegantly styled card royals along with a hand band and a golden cup. The rest of the icons is the carved stone wild, Excalibur as the scatter and 3 characters. These are King Arthur himself, Morgana and Meizulina.
The soundtrack is a melody mixed with birds and nature sounds. It is very atmospheric, epic and suitable for the theme of the game. It becomes more dynamic and moving during free spins, which you play on a different set. The reels are semi-transparent and reveal a spectacular meadow and a castle behind. The images are crystal clear, precise and look nice.
The low-value symbols include 5 card royals. The 9 and 10 pay equally – 3, 4 and 5 symbols return 0.25, 0.50 and 3.75 times your stake. The Q and J pay from 0.25 to 4 times your stake for 3 to 5 symbols on a line. The K and A give you 0.25x to 7.50x stake. There are two medium-value symbols – the silver hand band and the golden cup. They pay the same – 0.50, 2.50 and 25 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols of a kind.
The premiums are two ladies – Morgana and Meizulina and King Arthur himself. The blond and brunette ladies have the same values – 3, 4 and 5 give you 1, 3.75 and 30 times the stake. The king rewards 0.10, 1, 5 and 40 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a pay-line.
The wild is carved grey stone and has the power to substitute for all other symbols except for scatters. Landing 5 wild symbols in a spin ensure as much as 5 King Arthur symbols – 40 times your stake.
The scatter is the sword of King Arthur – Excalibur. You need 3 or more scatters to activate the free spins as follows:
In the free spins, there are several features. One of them is the Faithful Wild. You can choose one of the 3 characters: Morgana, the Prince or Meizulina to play the role of the wild. This happens before the start of a new bonus round.
Another extra in the free spins is the Excalibur feature. It can activate randomly or several times by chance or it won’t at all. When it triggers, with a wave of the magic sword, extra wilds land on the reels for each spin. This contributes by increasing your wins. Also, 5 wilds have the same payout as the most-rewarding symbol of the king.
And lastly, there is an increasing multiplier that varies from 2x to 7x for all wins during the bonus round. Its value is random and it ensures boosts on the wins you score during free spins. It is determined by chance at the start of each spin. You can win more free spins during the bonus round as scatters continue to land on the reels.
Avalon: The Lost Kingdom is a decent game by BGaming with superb design and nice features. It is centred around free spins, where you can find all of the extra modifiers. The good news is that you can re-trigger them.
If you like the legend of King Arthur you can find many games inspired by it. Other good choices to try are The Sword and the Grail, Legendary Excalibur and Mighty Arthur.
