Graphics and Sound
Value for Money
Crown of Avalon uses a relatively simple but effective formula with its “Book of” expanding symbols free spins bonus it’s hard to go wrong really. The expanding Excalibur Wilds also help to keep the base game interesting. Graphics are decently designed and it looks good but not great. The 2,000x is a bit too low for a “book of” type slot though and it would have been nice to see some higher payout potential.
- “Book of” Type Expanding Symbols Bonus
- Expanding Wilds
- Max Payout of 2,000x Too Low
