Two years in the making, the highly anticipated sequel to the original Microgaming slot Avalon, has finally been given a launch date.
Avalon II… oh how those whispered rumours have been hanging in the online slots gambling world! It’s been in production for longer than a Hollywood movie and seemed as difficult to find as the mystical holy grail itself. Yet finally, after years of waiting, Avalon II is coming to a Microgaming casino near you.
If you have no idea what we are talking about, chances are you are not a fan of the original (and excellent) Avalon mobile slot. The online slot has been around for a few years now (2006? We think?), so it’s a classic in the video slot world.
But forget all that. Even if you’ve never heard of the original Avalon slot, Avalon II is something different. Not to mention that it’s quite fascinating to watch how a slot machine comes together.
Well, it’s definitely a 5 reel video slot. But hey, we didn’t really expect Microgaming to make Avalon II a classic 3 reeler, let’s be honest. So here is what we managed to deduce from watching the video:
We may or may not be slightly cynical about the next big releases. It’s easy to get carried away with all the marketing PR casinos throw at us, and so we counter act that with a healthy dose of cynicism. But we were doubtful that South Park mobile slot would be as great as everyone said it will be, and yet Net Entertainment managed to prove us wrong. So why can’t Microgaming?
Well, now that you ask, because Microgaming have a habit of making everything sound amazing, and then not delivering. Look at the the latest Batman movie slot release; the Dark Knight Rises. Looks beautiful, but at heart, it’s can be a fairly dull game. No amount of pretty graphics can change that.
So will Avalon II be all pretty and no substance? It’s far too early to tell of course. But before we jump on the ‘it’s going to be amazing‘ bandwagon, we would like to see a little more of the game play please. Bright side, we are fans of the 243 ways to wins slots & the jackpot amount being the same as the original mobile slot bodes well. It’s been in production for two years, so we hope they took as much care in the details of game play as they did with the graphics.
