We have already described Columbus slot machine produced by Novomatic in the previous reviews of online games published at Casinoz. In the following article we are going to talk about it improved version, which was named Columbus Deluxe. It is quite a colorful and exciting online slot machine with a wide range of bets and a convenient interface.
Columbus Deluxe is the slot machine developed by Novomatic, which has five reels, ten pay lines, free spins, the special symbols, as well as the gambling feature, which can double up your payoff. It is possible to stake from 0.02 to 10 credits per each of the lines, however, the total bet per spin can’t be less than 0.2 credits. The maximal acceptable bet is 100 credits. The theoretical cash back index of Columbus Deluxe slot machine is 97,03%.
Winning combinations of this game have to consist at least of two (or three for some kinds of symbols) similar symbols, situated next to each other at the active line, starting from the first left reel. Scatter symbols form combinations independently of their location at the screen. The maximal payoff in amount of 50000 credits is awarded by five images of Columbus while playing by ten credits per line.
The gambling feature, which can be triggered after every winning spin by click at Gambler button, doesn't surprise. The player has to guess the color of the following card. Lucky choice means that the win is doubled up, while the wrong choice leaves you without staked money.
Columbus Deluxe slot machine is devoted to the journeys of the famous Columbus, that’s why all the symbols, which you can see at the reels, are somehow connected with this subject. In case, there is just few of them: Columbus himself, a queen, a jewelry, an astrolabe, as well as letter and number signs of the playing cards from ten to ace, written with the beautiful ancient font.
- Wild symbol is an image of Christopher Columbus. It can replace any other symbol (except of Scatter) when it helps making a winning combination.
- Scatter symbol is an image of the Columbus ship, sailing at the background of the blue sky. These symbols appear only at the first, the third and the fifth reels. If you are lucky to hit three such symbols in the same time at the screen (not necessary to pick them at the same line), you get right for free spins. An image of the ship in the sunset plays part of Wild symbol during these spins and replaces any other symbols.
Any other bonus games are not provided by the rules of Columbus Deluxe slot machine.
Any progressive jackpots are not raffled in Columbus Deluxe slot machine.
The interface of Columbus Deluxe slot machine is quite convenient in use, although it still has some disadvantages. But first about strong parts.
You can control the gameplay with help of such buttons as Start (start a new spin), Gamble (play in the gambling feature), Collect (collect the win), Autoplay (the automatic game), Paytable (open the payment table in English), More Info (more information about the game). Some of these buttons appear only at some levels of the game. An amount of the bet per line and number of the active lines are selected with help of plus and minus next to such windows as Lines and Bet/Line.
Winning combinations are highlighted with blinking lines at the screen of the game, next to which an amount of the payoff by each of them is displayed. Information about amount of the win is displayed under the reels. The payment table presents not indexes, but potential amounts, which the player can win by combinations playing by the current bet.
Well, now about disadvantages. Unfortunately, there is no Maxbet button in this slot, which could help setting up the maximal bet per all lines quickly. It is also necessary to click at Collect button every time you get a payoff that is quite annoying. Moreover, to transfer the winning to the account quickly, you have to make a double click at this button. It slows up the gameplay.
There are no claims to the graphics, animation and background music of Columbus Deluxe slot machine. They are implemented on the high level.
Columbus Deluxe slot machine can be meant a video slot with low dispersion level. Winnign combinations are formed quite frequently here with help of Wild symbol, which often appears at the screen. Of course, the bonus game could be pleasant, but it is the interesting slot even without it.
