Everyone has heard of the legend of King Arthur and there is nothing not to love about it. With that in mind, Bgaming released Avalon: The Lost Kingdom, a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 20 ways for the player to land a winning combo. Players should expect a simple yet interesting design and some amazing features to go with it. From the looks of it, the game is set for success.
Celtic mythology is always going to be an interesting topic, especially when used in the making of slot games. It is definitely one of the most interesting mythologies. It has the most amazing legends with tons of details, that all have great meaning in the story that is told. It also makes the designer’s job much easier, by having to focus on the way everything looks rather than thinking of things linked with the theme to incorporate into the game.
Players are going to be impressed with the graphics of the game. The background is simple but also meaningful, with the huge stone and the mighty sword Excalibur sticking out. There is also fog forming causing for a more dramatic effect. The soundtrack consists of very calming music that also sounds quite majestic, which fits the mythological theme perfectly.
The symbols are the most interesting part, at least when it comes to the appearance of the game since they contribute a lot to telling the story behind it. The symbols include the royals that we are all used to seeing, as the low paying symbols. The high paying symbols include rings, grails, and the three main characters, Morgana, Meizulina, and King Arthur. The game’s wild symbol is represented by a tombstone, while Excalibur acts as the scatter.
The game has good gameplay as well. The minimum a player can bet is 0,20 and the maximum is 50 coins per spin. The payouts are going to satisfy for sure. With the help of features, they go as high as 5,000x the stake in a single spin. This medium volatility game has only one downside to it and that is the 95% RTP which could have been a bit better.
With a theme as interesting as this one, the features were bound to be great. They are very creative and make the game a lot more exciting to play. Aside from the wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter, everything pretty much revolves around the Free Spins feature.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This awards the player 10, 12 or 15 free spins that play out after the player has pulled Excalibur from the stone. The feature also comes with an increasing multiplier that varies randomly between x2 and x5 on each spin. During the free spins round, two interesting features can be activated that will ensure a great payout.
The first is the Fateful Wild feature where the player gets to choose between the three main characters, one that is going to be the fateful wild symbol before every free spin. The fateful wild has the same function as the regular wild. The second is the Excalibur feature that is triggered randomly at any point during the round. It can also be triggered multiple times. The feature adds additional wild symbols to the reels to increase the winning potential.
The game has impressed on so many levels! The design and graphics are very well-done which was expected. The features are however the star of the show since not only can the player benefit a great deal from them, they are also very creative and tie great to the story. Considering all, the 95% RTP can be overlooked. Overall, it is a game worth trying out.
