Sails of Gold Pokie
You probably did not know, but America was discovered long before Columbus’s expedition and Vikings, led by Erik the Red are responsible for this discovery. Still, in the popular culture, Christopher Columbus, Italian navigator that sailed under the flag of Spain, is regarded as the first European to set foot on the soil of the American continent.
Discovery of the new continent, faraway lands, new cultures and people are just a great inspiration for a pokie machine. Set your sail, we’re off to the brave New World and our fellow sailor will show us how to get back in 1492 and earn some decent amount of money.
