Microgaming's Avalon II Video Slot Finally Released

February 10, 2014


New game releases happen all the time in the online casino world. New games are regularly rolled out each month, and most of them don't cause a ton of buzz in the industry. What a lot of people miss is how these seemingly mundane titles can help to drive the popularity of games that do build a lot of excitement. A lot of games are used as market tests for various features and formats to see how players respond to them. This allows software companies to keep accurate data on the trends influencing the industry. Whenever this data is used in extremely concentrated ways, you end up with big titles that get a lot of attention.

This is the case with the Avalon II video slot that has finally been released by Microgaming. It's been anticipated for quite a while, and it's the sequel to one of the most popular titles that Microgaming has ever produced. Microgaming has saved a lot of its tests and research material for Avalon II to make sure that it's one of the best games they have ever produced. It uses the 243-ways format, and it has a number of popular features including Rolling Reels, Trailing Wilds and opportunities to get extremely large bonus mulitpliers. We're talking four-figure multipliers that are possible in this game.

Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said, "Avalon has been a top-performing game for us since its launch; the slot has a huge and very loyal fan base. At Microgaming we're very proud of the mix we have in our portfolio of licensed brands including The Dark Knight Rises and Playboy, and iconic brands that we have created ourselves, such a Thunderstruck and Avalon. Avalon II takes the Avalon brand to a whole new level; we are delighted with the end product; it really is a work of art."

As Raatgever stressed, one of the reasons that Microgaming's deep slots portfolio has been so successful is that there are plenty of high-quality games in it. As he also mentioned, this includes a great mix of games that include both popular brands in film, television and movies as well as brands that they have created and built themselves. To create brands that really last in this industry, you have to be able to create high-quality titles that people want to keep playing over the long run, and that's exactly what Avalon II is going to do.
