Columbus Deluxe is a mobile slot originally developed for land-based casinos back in 2005 by Novomatic to be later optimised for online and mobile play. It is based on the story of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean and discovered America. Being developed 11 years ago, the game features quite plain graphics and typical Novomatic sounds providing you with a real casino experience. Besides Columbus, on this thrilling journey you will also meet Queen Isabella of Spain and you can win up to 50,000 coins per spin.

Columbus Deluxe Gameplay

Columbus Deluxe is a 5-reel 10-payline mobile slot. Enter the Menu on the right side of the reels to adjust the number of paying lines you want to play at and your bet per line. You can choose from AU$0.01 up to AU$5 per line, which means the game playable from only AU$0.10 up to AU$50 per spin at all paying lines activated. You are also allowed to press the Max bet option and set your stake to the maximum amount.

Turn sounds and music on or off according to your preferences and press the Spin button to set the reels in motion. If you don't feel like spinning the reels manually, hold the Spin button a bit longer and as soon as it goes blue, you will be offered to choose a preferred number of automatic spins and win and loss limits at which Autospin stops. To create a winning combination, you need to land two high value or three low value symbols in succession on an active paying line.

Bonus Features

Columbus stands for Wild and substitutes for all symbols except for Scatters thus helping you create more winning combinations. During the game you get two kinds of Scatters and they appear only on the reels 1, 3 and 5. In the base game, you will see the icons represented as three Columbus' ships Niña, Pinta and the Santa Maria and as soon as you land them on the reels simultaneously, you will get 10 free spins.

During these free games you get another set of Scatters which act at the same time as substitutes to help you complete more winning combinations. They also appear only on the reels 1, 3 and 5 and when you land them all anywhere on these reels, the feature will be retriggered. You are also allowed to gamble and double each payout by guessing the colour of a hidden card or collect your payouts without gambling them.

Symbols & Payouts

Besides Queen Isabelle and Columbus, the game features two more high value symbols which are depicted as the golden necklace and the navigational instrument while low payouts are delivered by playing card symbols. The maximum payout is delivered for landing five Columbus Wilds on an active paying line and it stands at 5,000 coins per line. The theoretical RTP for Columbus Deluxe is 95.02%.
