The visuals and sounds aren't the only things to have improved in Avalon II. There are now, like in many other Microgaming titles, 243 ways to win. This is a vast improvement on the 20 paylines of the original Avalon slot.
The maximum jackpot has risen to 120,000 coins, which isn't bad considering the relatively low maximum bet of 7.50. But, even if you don't hit the big jackpot, you might get lucky in one of the game's many bonus rounds:
- Lake of Legend
- Misty Vale (extra wilds)
- Dusky Moors (matching mini-game)
- Hall of Shadows
- Isle of Avalon (Wheel of Fortune)
- Morgan's Keep
- Forest Falls
- Whispering Woods
Plus, Merlin will also pop up from time to time to award extra prizes. We're hard pressed to think of a game with more bonus rounds and mini-games on offer than Avalon II.
Unfortunately, there's a downside to all of that bonus action and the large number of ways to win. Although players will experience plenty of wins, the value of these is generally quite low; sometimes a line of four or five symbols doesn't even recoup the original bet.
