About Flying Colors Slots

Despite a very simple, cartoony style, and a theme that is neither here nor there, Flying Colors is a slot that actually works. There are as many positives as there are negatives to this slot, but which one outweighs the other and how does Flying Colors stack-up overall?

Game in Action

The graphics on Flying Colors are very simple, even more so than other Rival Gaming slots. They are far from polished, very bright and almost a little painful at times. The symbols are mostly numbers and letters, along with a couple of flying machines and pilots. The highest of these pays 500x, but there are four symbols that pay 100x or less for 5.

This is partially offset by a jackpot symbol which pays as much as 1,000x and by a wild symbol that pays a huge 10,000x if you land 5 of them in a payline, whilst also significantly boosting other paylines. The pros and cons here pretty much create a level playing field, which means that the quality of this slot is reliant on the bonus rounds it offers.


Bonuses

The main bonus round is triggered via the red plane symbol. This is a decent little mini-game, but it is far from the best we have played and even gets a little tedious after you have played it a few times (assuming you’re lucky enough to unlock it that many times). However, there is a fantastic free spins round on Flying Colors, which is definitely one of the best we have seen. This round “guarantees” a win every spin, which is a welcome inclusion as it’s very annoying to unlock a free spins round only to get nothing out of it.

The reasoning behind this “guarantee” is the wild reel, which appears on the first reel for every spin. All spins also have a 2x multiplier, which means as well as picking up wins on most spins, you’ll also get a substantial return, and you only need two symbols for the minimum win.

On average, even with just 7 free spins you should able to secure a win of around 15x, and this could easily increase to more than 50x if your luck is in and if you unlock the maximum number of spins.

Summary

Flying Colors is not a particularly attractive game. It is very basic visually speaking, and there are only really two high paying symbols here, one of which is the wild. There is an interactive style bonus round, which is always a welcome sight, but the main feature and the main positive with this slot is the free spins round. This round alone is why we are happy to score Flying Colors 8 out of 10, instead of the 5 out of 10 that we might have given it without this round.
