Wednesday February 5,2014 : MICROGAMING'S AVALON II GOES LIVE
Players tasked to retrieve the Grail from its secret resting place in second installment
Microgaming has launched the much anticipated sequel to its original Avalon online slot titled Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail.
The original Avalon online slot which was launched on the Casino platform in 2006 was an instant hit and has remained a player favourite since. Subsequently the slot was released on mobile in 2010, followed by a multi-player version in 2013.
Building on the success of its predecessor, Avalon II takes players on an epic quest to retrieve the Grail which has been stolen from its secret resting place. Merlin, Arthur, Guinevere and the treacherous Morgan Le Fay are brought to life in 3D along with several other legendary characters. 3D rendered animations, coupled with professional voice acting and an impressive musical score, sets Avalon II apart from other games in its genre.
The five reel, 243 ways-to-win video slot combines striking visuals with captivating game play transporting players through eight exciting bonus games in their quest to retrieve the Grail. The bonus rounds consist of some player favourite features such as Rolling Reels™ and Trailing Wilds™, and patent-pending features including the Isle of Avalon bonus which presents the opportunity to win a 5099 bonus round multiplier.
Merlin can appear at any time in the base game to award cash prizes or enhance a win with a magical multiplier. In addition, the third reel contains the elusive Lady of the Lake symbol, which will expand into a wild reel to complete additional wins.
"Avalon has been a top-performing game for us since its launch; the slot has a huge and very loyal fan base", said Roger Raatgever, chief executive officer of Microgaming.
"At Microgaming we’re very proud of the mix we have in our portfolio of licensed brands including The Dark Knight Rises™ and Playboy™, and iconic brands that we have created ourselves, such as Thunderstruck and Avalon. Avalon II takes the Avalon brand to a whole new level; we are delighted with the end product; it really is a work of art."
