Columbus Deluxe is a fantastic slot from Novomatic that is themed on the life and times of renowned explorer Christopher Columbus, who was born in Italy in the 15th century. The game has 5 reels and 10 adjustable paylines, with the coin size ranging from 0.01 to 5.00. The minimum and maximum bets per spin in this game are 1p for a single 0.01 coin bet on one payline (10p for all 10 paylines) and £50 respectively.
Columbus Deluxe is an exciting slot thanks to the excellent graphics and features that the game has. The game has the look and sound of a slot from a land-based casino, with high quality symbols and animations making up for the classic and simple feel. The symbols in the game include a sextant, an exotic gold necklace, Queen Isabella of Spain, and the numbers 10, J, Q, K and A from a standard card deck. The wild symbol is Columbus himself and there are 3 ship scatter symbols, basically 3 views of the same ship. The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatter and helps form winning combinations.
Columbus Deluxe has a free spins round as the bonus game. This round is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols across the reels. The ships turn to gold when this happens and you get 10 free spins. Landing 3 more scatter symbols during the free spins round gives you another 10 free spins. The free spins are not automatic; you have to click the Spin button each time. The game also has the standard Gamble feature that you can use to try and double your wins from a spin. The feature is activated at the end of each winning spin. If you choose the colour of the card shown on screen correctly you double your wins, else you lose your winnings from that spin.
