Columbus Deluxe slot by Novomatic features a total of ten paylines and five reels. This slots game has a realistic cartoon style that focuses on the voyage of the famous explorer Christopher Columbus. Columbus was also a colonizer, navigator and citizen of the Republic of Genoa. The rulers of Spain helped fund his trip across the Atlantic Ocean, of which he made a total of four, in order to establish permanent settlements there. His first voyage was in fourteen hundred and ninety two. His quest was originally to make the round trip all the way to Japan, but he ended up hitting the Bahamas which he promptly named San Salvador and claimed for his rulers. In his next three trips, he made it to Central America where he also claimed the land in the name of his rulers. This opened the New World to exploration and colonization by Europe.
