Symbols and Multipliers
The main symbol on the slot machine Columbus is the portrait of Christopher Columbus. It multiplies your bet by 10, 100, 1 000 and 5 000 for 2, 3, 4 and 5 pictures respectively. Even if you play for free, Columbus can substitute other symbols in a line to help you make up winning combinations. However, it cannot substitute for a scatter symbol which is the picture of caravel. Caravels by themselves do not bring any gambling gain but they trigger 10 free spins, if three of them appear on the screen.
The alphabetic and numeric symbols are stylized to look like Gothic. Symbols “10” and “J” bring x5, x20, x100 your bet; the letters “A”, “K” and “Q” multiply your bet by 10, 40, and 150. The pictures provide even greater multipliers. The picture of a sextant will bring x5, x15, x75, and x250 your bet for the combination of 2, 3, 4, and 5 symbols; the golden necklace will multiply your bet by 5, 25, 100, and 500; and the portrait of a Spanish princess will guarantee you 5, 50, 200 and even 1 000 credits for every credit you bet.
