Overview of Crown of Avalon Slot
The chance has come again to step into the mythical island called Avalon which is one of the significant elements of the Arthurian legend. This brand-new slot from the developers at Iron Dog and takes all its inspiration from the King Arthur story who people think of as a fictional hero, a British leader or some Celtic deity with no historical existence, but Crown of Avalon skirts around getting stuck in the history. This slot is! Anyway, Crown of Avalon does not go into the history side of things too much. The slot takes you to a Medieval setting and offers captivating, yet simple game play coupled with some great wins so whether you are a fan of this genre or not there is little for you to complain about.
Theme & Design
If you have not guessed by now this slot is based on King Arthur and as so takes place in the Medieval Ages on the mythical place of Avalon and this is where you find the reels are set. In the backdrop there is a serene pond nestling in a grove of green, and behind you reels you will see the sword in the stone Excalibur, which the teenager Arthur pulled out and then went on to become King. The atmosphere in this slot is truly magical which is paired with a truly enigmatic musical score. The game play fits perfectly and provides the final touches of ambiances and all the elements merge together perfectly and as you land wins, or the bonus features the tempo picks ups.
When it comes to the symbols, they are made up of 9 regular symbols comprised of 5 low paying and 4 higher paying ones. On the pay table you will see that the symbols are ones that you are probably familiar with unless of course this is your first dalliance into the land of slots. The symbols include the usual low paying playing card symbols 9 through to Ace and the others are classic characters that have just stepped out of the Arthurian legend.
The playing card symbols are different thanks to the touch of styling the developers at Iron Dog have added. The premium symbols have also had a makeover, and you will come across (in ascending order) Morgana, Merlin, Guinevere, and King Arthur. There are also two wilds to help you create winning combinations as they can both substitute for all regular symbols to create winning combinations as well as being the key to provide different in-game features. The wilds are represented by the Crown and Shield symbols and as well as everything else that they can do they have the same value as the top paying symbol offers, so remember to watch out for them.
How to win
To create a win, you need to land three of the lower paying symbols or two of the higher payers on the same pay line starting from the left-hand side of the screen. Get lucky and land five of the same and you will seal the bigger rewards. Should you land 5 of the King Arthur symbols and you will be awarded with 200x your bet, next come 5 Guinevere which pays 50x your bet, 5 Merlin symbols pays 20x your bet with Morgana paying 10x your bet. If you land 5 of the Ace of King you will win 5x your bet and finally 5 of the Queen, Jack or 10 and you will get a reward that is equal to 4x your bet.
Iron Dog have taken a simple approach with the math model and the figures are average when compared to other slots. This slot has a high volatility level and as so you need to prepare yourself as you are not going to be showered with winnings, so it is vital to keep this in your mind and adjust your bets as you cannot rely on the small wins to keep your balance afloat. The return to player helps though as it stands at a solid 96% which should help you to gather some wins.
The slot plays out over a 5x3 reel set and 10 pay lines, to get your reels spinning you need to place a bet that is at least $0.1 per spin up to a maximum of $50 per spin. The maximum potential on offer here does not exceed the average value and as so you could land a life changing 5,000x your stake which amounts to a massive $250,000 on a single spin if you have chosen to play using the highest bet level.
Unfortunately, Crown of Avalon is rather light when it comes to features, as stated above this is a great slot even though it is basic and keeps things simple. However, even though the slot does not provide players with much to do it manages to keep most players entertained throughout, and it would be fair to say that this slot is all about the expanding symbols as they hold the key to success and riches.
There are two wilds, and they will help you to activate the bonus features. The first wild is represented by Excalibur and this is an expanding symbol and can show up on the grid in both the base and bonus game and will cover the entire reel that it lands upon. Better still you can also land multiplier Excalibur wilds on the same spin, but these do not have a value on their own, so you will not gain anything by filling your entire grid with this wild. The Shield and Crown is the second wild and as well as acting as a substitute to create winning combinations this also doubles up as the scatter. If you land three of these symbols anywhere on your game grid the free spins feature becomes active and you will be rewarded with a cash prize. Regardless of the number of scatters you land you will always get up to 10 spins at most, however landing 3, 4, 5, scatters will reward you with 2x, 20x, and 200x your bet, respectively.
When it comes to the mechanics in the free spins it is like that used in the Book of Dead slot. If you are not au fait with the Book of Dead, it basically means that when you activate the free spins feature one symbol is picked at random to become an expanded symbol for the whole of the feature. It is also possible to reactivate as scatters continue to appear all through the feature although you are unable to activate another expanding symbol, therefore if you land three more scatters you will only get 10 free spins but this is limitless.
Crown of Avalon is a beautifully design slot which recreates a theme that has been the subject of hundreds of slots, but Iron Dog have managed to keep the theme fresh and game playing different. I enjoyed playing this slot immensely and I think this is due to the exceptional quality of the graphics and I believe that this will be the main reason that this slot will appeal to the masses as well as fans of this theme.
