Barcrest head back to the ancient past in this Lady of Avalon mobile slot, giving you old graphics, old themes, and old game mechanics.
We have to admit that this Lady of Avalon slot looks old before it’s time. That’s probably because before it came online, it probably has been kicking around the Vegas floors for a while.
In fact, it looks as dated as the original Avalon slot by Microgaming that came out decades ago, with 5 reels full of generic Ace to 10 symbols, a wizard, a lady, a castle, a book and a horse on blue reels.
It doesn’t quite grab the imagination of the old Arthurian legends in the way something like the Mighty Arthur slot has done more recently.
This Lady of the Lake, however, has less in common with the two games above than it does with far more ancient magic; namely the Book of Ra Deluxe slot machine by Novomatic.
What you have here in this Lady of Avalon slot is 5 reels and 10 paylines with a wild that also acts as the scatter. Get 3 scatters and you get 10 free spins.
During the bonus round, one symbol will be chosen to expand and pay like a scatter. Meaning you don’t have to line them up from left to right to get a win, getting them anywhere on the 5 reels, one more the one reel, will give you a win.
Here’s the problem. It’s not like the theme has been updated for a modern audience, or it looks particularly great on Android phone screen, iPad, iPhones or Tablets.
Instead, not only is it dated, but it restricts your betting options. Yes, you can bet as little as 0.10 a spin, as with the original, but at a cost of how much this Lady of Avalon slot pays out.
Bet less than 2 a spin and the RTP of this game is a low 94.09%. Bet over 2 a spin, and it increases to a far more friendly 98.08-96.22%. That’s good news for High Limit slot players, who can gamble up to a high 500 a spin.
The mechanics are great, that said, as long as you can afford the larger bet. If you can’t, then we’d probably recommend you play on the Book of Dead mobile slot by Play’n GO, which added a little something special to the original game and is certainly prettier than this Barcrest legend.

Wild and Scatter: The Lady of Avalon is both the wild and the scatter symbol. She can be used to replace any other symbol on the reel to create a win over the 10 paylines or, if you find three, trigger the free spins.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 Lady of Avalon on screen and you'll trigger 10 free spins. Here one symbol will be chosen to expand and cover the whole reel, paying like a scatter. Ie. it doesn't have to sit left to right of the reels.
Lady of Avalon is a 10 win line game with a wild symbol that also acts like a scatter and triggers 10 free spins. During the bonus game, one symbol is chosen to expand and cover the reels, paying like a scatter.
If this all sounds very familiar, it's suppose to. Barcrest studios are not trying to reinvent the wheel, simply add their version to the Book of Ra games.
The problem is that we have many of them already, from the Book of Ra Magic slot to the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 game, which does it better, in a more interesting way, with nicer graphics.
In short, there is nothing wrong with this Lady of Avalon slot on mobile, as long as you know this is a copy and are willing to spend over £€$2 a spin.
