Avalon 2 Pokie
Like Thunderstruck 2, another of the most popular pokie games here at Game Culture, Avalon 2 took the basis of a Microgaming classic and rebooted it to bring it bang up to date. Indeed, the only criticism of the original Avalon pokie that we could aim at it is the fact that the visuals are a little dated, although with so many years of service to its name it certainly has an excuse! Either way, that is no longer a concern as Avalon 2 is one of the most highly detailed games around right now and it continues the magical theme and features of the original with even more great action to look forward to.
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 243 ways to win
Special Features: Grail Quest and Merlin Bonus
Top Prize: 500 coins
If you’ve played the original then one of the first things that you’ll have to get to grips with on the sequel is the fact that the action is played out over 243 ways to win. This is a massive upgrade and yet you won’t have to spend much more on each spin, with bet amounts that wouldn’t be out of place on a thirty line video pokie. Take your pick of automatic spins or the good old manual option and you’re good to go, at which point it’s time to set your sights on the great features.
The first feature you’re likely to see first-hand on Avalon 2 is the Merlin bonus. Being a wizard, he can do pretty much what he wants, when he wants and on this game he has opted to appear on the screen at random following a spin to award either an instant cash prize or a multiplier on the prize of the preceding spin.
While certainly handy, Merlin’s influence on proceedings pales in comparison to the Grail Quest feature. Three or more Holy Grail symbols will trigger the round and this one Is sure to be a hit with players that enjoy the idea of a quest, seeing as you make progress each time you enter the round. The prizes and the action get bigger and better as you head to locations ranging from the Lake of Legend to Morgan’s Keep and even the Isle of Avalon itself. There are free spins, pick a win bonuses and even a battle with the Black Knight himself included as part of this feature action and it all comes together to become one of the very best feature rounds of all time.
Game Culture’s Opinion
The first Avalon pokie became a classic because it was simply such a good game. Imagine taking a legendary poker machine and making it hugely better and you’ll end up with Avalon 2. The bonus round alone is more than enough reason to play this one simply because we’ve never seen a better one and even the base action, complete with 243 ways to win, is something not to be missed.
