Cosmic Fortune Slot Review
Released in November 2014 Cosmic Fortune was a slots game way ahead of its time. It incorporates five jackpots into the game for the first time and is another in the series of "fortune" themed jackpot games along with Mega Fortune Slots
Don't be put off by the introduction video. It reminds me of countless hours wasted playing "space invaders" on the arcade machine in the local leisure centre or something I might have programmed for my Sinclair Spectrum ZX while I was waiting for a game to load from tape. Yes, folks, I am THAT old!
There is a scene from that intro video that looks a bit like the "meteor blaster" video game and I'm sure that's what it's meant to be. Leaving alone the naff intro video you should play this game because there are three progressive jackpots to be won and two local jackpots so when you win you win big. Cosmic Fortune is another great game by Net Entertainment, and you should press the buttons.
Five Jackpots, 2 Bonus games, Free Falls, Avalanche Features and Wild Substitutions - What's not to like!
Cosmic Fortune is a space theme orientated slot game with three different progressive jackpots and two static jackpots to play for. The progressives are specific to the casino you are playing at while the two local jackpots are fixed at £100 and £500. If you have multiple casino accounts, it would be a good idea to check out which ones have the highest progressive amount when you want to give this game a spin. Play at a well-known casino like Mr Green or Royal Panda, and you'll find a decent progressive jackpot to play for
The theoretical return to player for this game is 96.9% but the true figure is slightly less than that as around 6% of each spin feeds the progressive jackpot. You might be disappointed with the low payouts from this game but really you're playing for the jackpot so breaking even is a good thing.
This game introduced the "avalanche" feature again where each time you make a winning line the symbols disappear and are replaced by fresh ones. If you continue to make a winning line the process repeats. This feature was brilliant in Jackhammer 2 slots where the tension was amped up with the background music, and it's the same in this game as well.
Cosmic Fortune Slot Features
Free Spins Rounds
Spin 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the "free fall" free spins round. Your winnings are banked at the end of each round and paid out when your "free falls" expire.
If you've ever played Gonzos Quest Slot then you'll have experienced the avalanche feature in all its glory. When you hit a winning line the symbols disappear to replaced by new ones. If it's another winner the process continues causing an "avalanche effect" on the reels. This is an exciting feature when the symbols start piling up and you know you could be in for a big win.
Golden Globes are the scatter symbols and 3 scatter symbols will reward you with 10 free falls. Are you following me? Once you've finished the free falls Round, you'll activate the bonus feature which will use the marbles you collected to:
Free Falls Bonus Feature
A spaceship will float across the top of the screen but instead of trying to blast it to smithereens it will drop marbles into cups like a magician's cheap trick. Every cup you win pays out a cash win.
When you enter the jackpot game the spaceship will drop 50 marbles that will bounce around to a prize. Get your marbles in three collector cups to win a jackpot prize. Which jackpot you win depends on your bet size.
- The Rapid Jackpot: a fixed jackpot of £100 (at maximum bet)
- The Mini Jackpot: a fixed jackpot of £500 (at maximum bet)
- The Midi Jackpot: a progressive jackpot with an expected jackpot payout value of £4,000
- The Major Jackpot: a progressive jackpot with an expected jackpot payout value of £13,500
- The Mega Jackpot: a progressive jackpot with an expected jackpot payout value of £100,000.
Cosmic Fortune - The Verdict
High-quality graphics and a great music backing track compliment the unique and innovative features that Net Ent has incorporated into this great game.
Five jackpots to play for, Free Falls, Avalanche feature and a bonus round to play should please every slots game player. Get past the extremely naff opening video and you'll be rewarded with a slots game that has been well thought out and leaves you desperate for more free spins rounds.
