COLUMBUS DELUXE FREE SPINS FEATURE
3 SHIPS TO AWARD THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON COLUMBUS DELUXE
1O FREE SPINS AWARDED FOR TRIGGERING THE FEATURE
To trigger the feature on Columbus you need to get a ship land anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5, these are the only reels that the ship symbol appears on. Successfully landing the 3 will award you with 10 free spins.
Once the free spins begin, the ships also act as a wild symbol, so ideally here you are looking for all 3 to land again, not just to give you a re-trigger and an additional 10 free spins, but to also increase your chances of hitting a full line of a premium symbol.
It likes to drop in the Columbus symbol a lot, so during the free spins with the extra wilds it does increase your odds dramatically of landing a full line of him.
You're not likely to see lots of re-triggers whilst playing this slot, if you get a total of 30 free spins from your feature you've done extremely well.
COLUMBUS DELUXE SLOT REVIEW FINAL THOUGHTS
Columbus Deluxe isn't the most exciting slot but it does give you decent value for your money, there are some Novomatic games that are not absolutely brutal in giving you the bonus, and this is one of them.
I can't ever recall going over 300 spins on this without landing the bonus, and that can't be said about too many of the Novo games.
Of course with it giving you the free spins more regularly, the chances of hitting a huge win are a lot smaller, I've never had a massive win on Columbus, just steady wins, so I don't really think it has the potential like other slots from Novomatic.
Be sure to check any terms and conditions at the casino you are playing at, but if you are trying to wager through a bonus I've always found this slot good for doing so, just because the features tend to come often and it keeps your balance at a reasonable level throughout.
