It has been tempting gamers for weeks now, but Microgaming has finally announced the launch of their Avalon II slot machine. Known officially by its full name - Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail - this video slot is the sequel to the 2006 smash hit, Avalon. A King Arthur mythology themed video slot; Avalon II has been designed in absolutely superb and stunning 3D graphics.
Launched this week, the title is now available to play at Microgaming online casinos across the internet. The game doesn’t just feature tip top graphics, though; it also comes with a superb soundtrack as well as cheap wagers (30p per spin minimum), and 8 bonus rounds. There are also two additional bonus features, though these are triggered randomly and are therefore out of the player’s control.
Of these 8 bonus features, three of them are free spins bonus rounds. All of the bonus rounds are activated by triggering the Grail Bonus feature, which is achieved by acquiring three or more scatter icons in the slot. Our favourite feature (at least from the demo), has to be the Forest Falls Bonus. In this bonus round, players are gifted 20 free spins, with the wild icon becoming a trailing wild. This means that when the wild appears on the first or second row of any reels, it will expand to cover the entire row it appears on, on the reels.

Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail is one of Microgaming 243 ways to win feature slot machines. The video slot has a massive amount of paylines, cheap stakes, and is a non-progressive jackpot slot.
