The Columbus Deluxe online slot machine takes players on a voyage with Christopher Columbus in search of adventure and wealth. The game takes place across five reels and ten win lines, with players not only looking to match adjacent symbols, but also find the three scatter symbols that appear on lines one, three and five, the Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta. Players will also see the Columbus symbol which acts as a wild card, substituting for any symbols other than his ships.
The Columbus Deluxe slot machine is one of the most interesting takes on the genre currently available, with players feeling the true representation and them of Columbus and his numerous journeys. The basic aim of the game is simple, with a player looking to match as many adjacent symbols as possible, from two up to five, across any of the ten win lines. The Columbus symbol appears randomly and not only acts as any other non-scatter symbol, but also doubles the value of the prize.
Upon starting the game, and before playing, the player selects their desired stake. This is chosen based on a price per line. This can be adjusted using the + and - buttons, and can also be tracked in conjunction with the ‘Winnings’ tab, where all symbols and their prize values are displayed.
The two options for beginning the game are the standard ‘Start’ button, where each spin is undertaken manually, or ‘Auto start’ where a player can decide on the number of spins to play and watch as the machine carries out their actions. This auto play function can be cancelled at any time.
Every winning spin presents the player with the opportunity to gamble their prize, including both single wins and those doubled through the use of the Columbus symbol. They are taken to a special area of the game based around a deck of cards, and can guess the next card in an effort to double their money. The previous six cards are displayed on the screen to give the player an idea of any patterns that are forming.
The main attraction of joining Columbus on his voyages over the high seas is the bonus game. The appearance of three or more of any of his ships, the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria during a normal spin automatically awards the player ten free spins. What’s more, the ships become wild during the bonus game, drastically increasing the chances of winning. Not only that, but if the player manages to spin in three ships again during the bonus game, a further ten free spins are awarded, with no upper limit. As with most modern slots, further information on the game, including bonuses and play information can be found under the ‘Pay Table’ link within the gaming area.
