Grail Bonus Feature
The Grail Bonus feature is where Avalon 2 really comes alive and offers a total of eight possible bonus game features. The Grail Bonus feature can be triggered randomly during the base play of Avalon 2 and consists of the following eight bonus rounds:

- Dusky Moors: Match two helms
- Morgan’s Keep: Get 20 Free Spins
- Hall of Shadows: Recover the Grail by defeating the Black Knight
- Isle of Avalon: Win a prize when you spin the Wheel f Avalon
Lake of Legend gives you the opportunity to re-forge the legendary sword, Excalibur from fragments by rolling die. The numbers on the dice correspond to certain sword fragments, match the two and watch the fragment move into the re-forge window. You have a total of 10 rolls of the dice and each number you get also matches a multiplier (5 = 5x multiplier etc.). If you manage to re-forge the sword complete you win 15x your stake.
Mist Vales gives you 15 free spins with a 1x multiplier and you get to choose your wild symbol for the round. The extra wild that you choose also gives you another 2x wild multiplier for even bigger winning potential.
Whispering Woods allows you to pick one of five different shields, each shield represents a different multiplier strength which range from the lowest 10x multiplier all the way up to an incredible 160x multiplier of your original stake.
Forest Falls gives you 20 free spins with a 1x multiplier. This round also includes the Avalon 2 icon wild symbol which is the Trailing Wild and, when it lands on the first or second row on any of the reels, it will expand down and stay there for one spin.
Dusky Moors sees you having to match two helms of the same kind out of twelve different items on screen. Each helm offers a multiplier which can range from 6x up to 20x your stake.
Morgan’s Keep gives you 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier as well as Microgaming’s Rolling Reels feature. This means that consecutive wins will increase the strength of the multiplier from a starting 2x and increase it to 3x, 4x, 5x and 6x on each free spin.
Hall of Shadows gives you a cash prize for every move that you make and, depending on how successfully you block or attack, the size of the prize will vary. The goal is to defeat the Black Knight and retrieve the Grail.
Isle of Avalon lets you spin different wheels to get the highest bonus multiplier that you can. There are four different wheels and the trick is to unlock the fourth wheel by getting a zero on the third wheel.
