Flying Colors is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot that's themed after World War I fighter pilots. One of these pilots is the Crimson Kaiser, who's no doubt themed after Germany's Red Baron. And you even get a chance to control Crimson Kaiser while he shoots down fighter planes in the bonus round. We'll discuss this bonus later, but let's first look at Flying Colors' symbols and theme.
Symbols and Theme
Flying Colors slots opens with an introduction, where you see each character flying around. You're then taken to the reels, which have blue sky in the background. You'll also hear dramatic music that reflects the serious tone of World War I air combat.
Symbols include the Red Kaiser (bonus), Zeppelin (wild), female officer (jackpot), propellers (free spins), green pilot, yellow pilot, letters, and numbers. The Zeppelin substitutes for all symbols besides the jackpot and bonus to form wins. This hydrogen balloon also pays the most at 10,000 coins for 5 symbols. The female officer pays the second most at 1,000 coins for 5 icons.
This 5-reel, 20-payline game takes a cartoonish approach to its symbols. And this keeps the game fun, instead of making it some kind of historical depiction on World War I. You also get to see cool animations during the game, including the pilots flying and the Zeppelin dropping bombs.
Flying Colors Slots Special Features
Flying Colors has two features, including free spins and a second-screen bonus round. The free spins are triggered by landing 3 or more propellers anywhere on the reels. You get 7 free games for 3 propellers, 14 for 4, and 25 spins for 5. These are called "Can't Lose Free Spins" because every spin is guaranteed to offer you a prize.
The Crimson Kaiser is the hero in this game, which is proven by you controlling him during the bonus round. After landing 3 or more Crimson Kaiser bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, you'll be alerted that there's an attack going on. You then fly around and attempt to shoot down enemy planes (i.e. green and yellow pilots). This bonus adds a really fun element and truly completes Flying Colors.
This game lets you adjust paylines from 1-20, coin size from $0.01 to $0.25, and coins per line from 1-10. The minimum wager is $0.01 per spin, while the max is $50.00. Also note that you can change the paylines with both a button underneath the reels and flags on the sides.
Two more options include Auto and Bet max. Auto lets you set the reels to automatically spin for a set number of turns. Bet Max quickly wagers the highest number of paylines and coins per line.
Final Thoughts on Flying Colors Slots
Rival Gaming, the creator of this game, passes the test with flying colors. They did a great job with the World War I air combat theme, especially by including a bonus round where you shoot down enemy planes.
We also like other elements in this slot, including the cartoonish graphics, dramatic music, and animations. If you like war-themed slots with some action (bonus round), then you'll definitely enjoy Flying Colors.
