Released in 2014, Avalon II – The Quest for the Grail is a sequel to the classic 2006 Avalon slot from Microgaming. Both slots are inspired by the stories about King Arthur, the legendary king of the English.
In Avalon II – The Quest for the Grail we are sent out on an adventurous mission to find and retrieve the Holy Grail; a vessel of supreme religious and magical significance. There are eight bonus games to play through to get to the grail, and you will be helped by various interesting characters, such as the wizard Merlin and the mysterious Lady of the Lake.
I like playing Avalon II when I’m in the mood for a modern-style slot with 3D-effects, animated symbols, lots of bonus features, and intricate gameplay. And I always play with the sound on, since both the music and the voice actors are really great.
