When it comes to pokies themes King Arthur is a common choice. But that didn’t stop Iron Dog Studio from giving it a shot of their own, breathing new life into an old concept. The studio’s latest pokie, Crown of Avalon, revisits the land of Camelot, the Knights of the Round Table, and all the other recognisable characters.
At first glance, the 5 reel, 3 row pokie doesn’t shine in terms of graphics. A decent job has been done by the artists to capture what made the original story so well loved, but there are many other titles with better artwork. Where the game does stand apart, however, is in its shrewd blending of story elements directly with exciting gameplay.
The legendary Crown of Avalon is out there, and the player must find it in order to help Arthur be crowned king. Of course, being king comes with a whole lot of loot, and that’s where things get interesting.
Find The Crown
On the reels players will find Merlin, Arthur, Morgana, The Lady of the Lake, and more. Matching their symbols will result in the biggest base game payouts. But, of course, it is the titular crown, and the sword Excalibur, that are the real roads to riches in Crown of Avalon.
Matching 3 Crown Scatters triggers 10 Free Spins. During the Free Spins a symbol is selected at random, which, if matched again during a Free Spins sequence, will grant an additional 10 Free Spins. That isn’t all. The randomly selected special symbol will not only act as a Wild, but will also expand to occupy an entire reel. This, of course, means massive pokies payout potential.
Claim The Sword
During the base game the sword Excalibur may be randomly encountered. When it does appear, it acts as an Expanding Wild, complete with attached multipliers. Even a single sword on the reels can dramatically enhance payout potential. If more than 1 sword lands on the reels, the payouts can be pushed to a maximum of 5,100x the original wager. A powerful sword indeed, and certainly the best friend of an enthusiastic pokie player.
Crown of Avalon is live now, has a 96% RTP, and is an excellent addition to the growing portfolio of Iron Dog Studio. Finally players have the chance to wield Excalibur for themselves, and may just get a few mighty payouts in the process.
