Lady of Avalon

Lady of Avalon

Lady of Avalon is one of many Arthurian Legend-themed casino games you will find when playing at UK online casinos. Microgaming doesn’t have a monopoly on this theme, and Lady of Avalon is a prime example of what Barcrest can do when having a crack at the genre. Expect a petite in terms of pay lines, but a considerably epic one when it comes to prizes.

This Barcrest produced slot machine only serves up 10 pay-lines on the slot’s 5 reels. However, wagers are considerably cheaper than many other King Arthur-themed casino game, with stakes costing as little as 10p a turn. At the opposite end of the wagering scale, players are looking at stakes being capped at £500 a game. Prizes are well above average at roughly 5,000x a total bet. However, the RTP (return to player) rate in Lady of Avalon is a touch below what we would ordinarily find in other top UK casino games.

Special features

Of course, wild symbols can contribute to wins. These icons appear as the Lady of the Lake herself and can substitute for all other symbols in the game, barring scatters. As substitute symbols, she can aid players in bagging wins. Unlike other games, where players are required to land scatter symbols to trigger the bonus, wilds act as scatters in this game. They are, therefore, capable of triggering the Lady of Avalon free spins bonus themselves.

The advantage of using scatter wilds is apparent for all to see. On occasion, slot players might get frustrated when just two scatters appear. Not only will two fail to trigger a bonus, but they can also interrupt winning combos. However, none of that can happen in Lady of Avalon. Scatter wilds will serve as either wilds or bonus triggering symbols, depending on what you require them for.

Bonus features

UK casino players need to land three, four or five of those scatter wilds to trigger Lady of Avalon’s free spin round. Once this begins, players will get to play with a total of 10 free games. At the start of the feature, one of the standard paying symbols will be chosen at random to appear as an expanding icon. If there is even a slightest sniff of a win, this symbol will expand to cover an entire reel during the bonus round whenever it appears. That should give players an added chance of winning.

This makes the free spin bonus round very similar to the one would find in Book of Ra, Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, and other mythical-themed slot games. It is also worth pointing out that the free spin round can be retriggered should 3 or more scatter wilds appear while the feature is active.

Overview

Lady of Avalon is a simple, but fun to play. It doesn’t offer anything overly original, and its free spin bonus is essentially a carbon copy of other top casino games. Even so, it is cheap and generous when it comes to prizes. The slot should make an ideal entry game for first-time slot players who like Arthurian mythology.
