Colossus Fracpot Slot
Increasingly the best online casinos are distinguishing themselves from their rivals by offering players exclusive games, and so we find CORE Gaming’s big money Colossus Frac/pot slot debut as a unique proposition for players with Sky Vegas. So what has this giant got to offer that makes the case for you to reach for the Sky?
Well, on first acquaintance Colossus Frac/pot is certainly a good-looking slot, though far from exceptional. It’s not the first Ancient Greece themed slot ever invented, so you won’t be overwhelmed by the originality of its basegame, but if you already love playing five-reel twenty-payline online slots then Colossus should certainly hit the spot.
The graphics and audio are very atmospheric indeed adding a sense of epic drama to each spin, and the user controls are very nicely implemented.
In traditional video slot style, the Colossus Coin symbol is this game’s Wild, with the power to substitute for all other symbols except the three Key symbols that unlock the titular Frac/pot feature . . . which leads us neatly to where the real gold (or reel gold, to be more literal) lies for players.
The three Key symbols – Bronze, Silver and Gold – are Scatter symbols that provide the route to Colossus Frac/pot’s big money bonus feature. You may have been wondering what on earth Frac/pot with its awkward spelling actually means, but all becomes a little clearer when this online slot’s bonus feature is explored.
Entry to the bonus game is triggered with two instances of a Jackpot Key spinning into view on the basegame, with the two keys’ metallic colour dictating which of the three possible jackpots the player will be working towards.
It’s also worth noting here that the three jackpot values are related to the stake you make on a spin, but the headline gold jackpot is a tasty 10,000 times your stake so even if you have to go with the smallest stake of 20p you still stand to bank £2000 if luck is on your side – go large with a £100 spin and it’s a million quid up for grabs! Returning to the Frac/pot feature, access to the bonus game finds you offered a tempting cash reward for your two keys.
However you have a strategic choice to make – do you take the cash or gamble it for more on the premise that further spins of reels three, four and five will add more instances of those Keys to your haul and earn you even bigger rewards? And here’s where Colossus Frac/pot slot makes its innovative move – players can choose to bank a specific fraction (and hence the ‘Frac’ bit of the game’s curious title) of their current offer, and gamble the rest. Win the gamble and players have the same chance to bank or gamble all or just a fraction.
Colossus Frac/pot is a very interesting online slot once you explore beyond its basegame and the addition of a little strategic thinking to your gambling choices in the Frac/pot feature should make it a hit with players who like a little more of a challenge to their video slot gaming.
It certainly makes a great case for playing Sky Vegas today, and we hope, if it’s the success it deserves to be, it might become more widely available at other online casinos in the future.
