King Colossus, a Simple Slot with Extras
King Colossus is a fairly straightforward online video slot from Quickspin that focuses more on bonus features and potential wins than an intricate storyline. The King Colossus of the title refers to a jolly white-bearded potentate with a somewhat Middle Eastern look, and the backdrop to the game, his treasure room strewn with gold and jewels, is only visible in the transitions between the base game and bonus game.
At other times, the five gold-framed reels filled with large, brightly coloured symbols dominate the screen. The 40 paylines are fixed, but players can adjust the bets per line, for a total bet per spin of between 0.40 and 120.00 in the relevant currency. Stately music accompanies game play, and King Colossus uses nine payline symbols in base play, backed by reels of luxurious blue silk.
Payline Symbols Pay up to 100X Bet
The Poker icons 10, J, Q, K and A crop up again in King Colossus, fashioned in multi-hued metallic characters that also have a Middle Eastern feel. All five pay identical prizes, namely 3X, 20X or 40X the line bet for matches of three, four or five symbols on the same payline, as long as they run in sequence from Reel 1.
The four medium-value symbols are a huge square-cut emerald, a hexagonal amethyst and a large brilliant-cut ruby, along with King Colossus himself. They also win matching prizes for three, four or five of a kind: 20X, 30X or 100X the line bet. In addition, King Colossus wins a consolation prize for a mere two matches on a payline: 2X the line bet.
Free Spins Deliver Two More Extras
An ornate gold-framed portrait of the treasury doors is the King Colossus Bonus Scatter. When three appear on Reel 2, 3, and 4, a round of 5 free spins is activated. The King Colossus icon also transforms into a massive 3X3 symbol, capable of covering the whole of Reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously. Coupled with potential Bonus Wilds on Reels 1 and 5, this feature can trigger some big multiple wins.
Although the Bonus Scatter does not appear during King Colossus free spins round to re-trigger the bonus, an extra icon is added to the reels during this round: the +1 Spin symbol. Every time it occurs, the player gets an extra free spin added to the round.
Golden Lion Forms Wild and Bonus Wild
A roaring golden lion mask serves as the Wild icon in King Colossus. It helps to create extra winning paylines by being able to substitute for any of the nine payline symbols, and matches of two or more Wilds from Reel 1 on the same payline also win their own designated prizes: 5X, 30X, 100X or 500X the line bet.
The same lion mask, but this time seen in profile, forms the King Colossus Bonus Wild, which can also substitute for any online gambling payline symbol, although it only appears in the bonus round. During free spins, two of these Bonus Wild icons feature on every spin, on Reel 1 and/or Reel 5, while regular Wilds are still a possibility on all five reels.
