Hottest UK Slots
There are many myths and legend that have developed around the legendary British King Arthur. Most historians can’t even agree on whether he ever really existed at all, let alone any of the finer details of his life. In the modern age, we can probably accept that he didn’t really have a magician friend called Merlin, and nor did he live in the clouds in the mystical city of Avalon. He probably didn’t even pull a special sword out of a stone, or throw it back to a lady who lived in a lake. We all believed it during our childhood, though, and it’s still a fun story to tell our own children. It’s also a rich source of inspiration for the design of an online slot, as Microgaming have proven here with Avalon.
Avalon is one of Microgaming's older UK slots - it dates all the way back to 2006, when the idea of playing slot games on the internet was still a relatively new one. It's survived to the present day because, despite the fact it looks a little rough around the edges by today's graphical standards, it's still one of the slots UK players find themselves coming back to because it's just so playable. It's charming, easy to play, and atmospheric. The music makes up for any shortcomings in the graphics, and it has a solid bonus feature to complement the base game.
According to the most commonly-told version of the legend, Avalon is where King Arthur sat with his Knights of the Round Table. It may also be where he's buried, and where the ruins of his castle still stand if anybody's able to find them. We can't verify any of that, but we can confirm that it makes for a great setting for this slot. The layout is a standard setup of 5 reels and three rows, presented against a background of a rich royal blue. On that royal blue, you'll find the royal playing card symbols, running from 10 to A and representing the lowest values.
Sitting above them are Arthur's crown, his coat of arms, a jewel set into a cross, and the legendary Holy Grail. There's a wild symbol in the slot, represented by Arthur's castle sitting above the clouds, and also a scatter, which takes the form of a ghostly image of the Lady of the Lake. The scatter provides access to one of the slot's bonus features, which we'll look at in more detail now.
There are two bonus features in Avalon, both of which have appeared in slots UK players are likely to have encountered before.
The first of them is a Gamble Feature, which may be offered to you after you’ve had a win of any kind. This is a simple game of chance, and allows you the opportunity to double or even quadruple your winnings if you’re feeling especially bold. All you have to do is predict the next card to be drawn from a pack. You can either predict the color (red or black) for a reward of double your winnings, or predict the suit for a reward of four times whatever you just won. Win, and you can either collect your increased prize, or gamble again. Lose, and you lose all your winnings and head back to the base game with your tail between your legs!
Conjure up enough of those Lady in the Lake specter scatters, and you'll get a Free Spins round. You'll need three of her to kick things off, and in return, you'll get twelve free spins. The slot will also award you a multiplier at random, which will remain active throughout the free spins, and may be as high as x7 your stake. During the free spins, a second wild symbol represented by a treasure chest might appear on your reels. Despite its treasure-chest appearance, it's worth less than the standard wild, but it still substitutes for everything apart from the scatter to make extra wins for you. With two wilds on the reels, your chances of making winning combinations are significantly increased.
There isn’t any more to Avalon than that - it belongs to the fantasy genre of UK slots, but it’s also somewhat traditional in both form and function. Twelve is a good number of free spins for a slot to offer, though - especially when you take into account the fact that the round can be re-triggered from within it. Double wilds also help out when it comes to generosity. There’s always a certain charm to playing the popular UK slots of yesteryear, and Avalon has plenty of it!
Avalon Developer - Microgaming
Microgaming has always been at the forefront of the UK slot games industry when it comes to developing new ideas, and coming up with new concepts. According to their company history, it was they who came up with the very first internet casino software, as long ago as 1994. Going a step further, they then created the first-ever bit of mobile casino software ten years later. If that's true, we should take a moment to thank Microgaming for making the whole UK slots scene possible!
They've been around the format for as long as it's existed, but they're still finding new ways to influence change today. Recently, they've started investing time and money into smaller studios, signing them to exclusivity deals so that all their products come out with the Microgaming label. It means new developers have an easier route to market, and Microgaming has a fresh supply of cutting-edge products from the brightest new minds in the industry. Everybody wins - but then Microgaming always do!
Avalon is a good example of the playability that made Microgaming slots so popular in the past, but if you want to check out what they’ve been up to in more recent years then try Immortal Romance slot, Lucky Leprechaun or Reel Talent UK Slot. We’d never say any individual gaming company is the largest in the world, but only a fool wouldn’t put Microgaming somewhere near the top.
