While Cosmic Fortune is a progressive video slot created by Net Entertainment, but you would be forgiven if you thought it was an 80’s arcade game.
Play Cosmic Fortune at the best NetEnt pokies casinos
The opening is reminiscent of an alien invasion arcade game, and we’re treated to a space theme with the symbols to match. But this isn’t what makes this slot really special – it’s the five huge cash jackpots for players to win.
How to play Cosmic Fortune
NetEnt have created a 5 reel slot featuring 3 rows and 15 paylines all set in outer space.
There are five jackpots, including the Rapid, Mini, Midi, Major and Mega, with the Rapid and Mini fixed at $100 and $500, respectively. The other three are progressives and interestingly are specific to the online casino they are offered at, rather than being linked regardless of where the title is being offered.

Cosmic Fortune symbols
NetEnt have chosen not to use the traditional symbols for their lower value symbols, and instead have used the Cosmic Fortune character, three unusual-looking aliens, and an array of animated outer space symbols, all of which you want to spin at least three of to receive a payout.
However, the Wild and the Scatter symbols are what you should keep your eye out for.
Wild symbol: The Wild symbol is the gold ‘W’ on the blue starry circle and only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. It substitutes for all symbols except Scatter symbols.
Scatter symbol: The Scatter symbol is the blue ’S’ on a gold circle and you need at least three to activate the Free Falls (which can be also known as the Free Spins).
Cosmic Fortune bonus features
Cosmic Fortune includes quite a number of additional bonus features, that you may find quite familiar despite their name. The best feature, however, includes the five available jackpots.
Cascading Reels: Cosmic Fortune features Cascading Reels, which we welcome with open arms, where the symbols fall into place rather than spinning. Every win sees these symbols exploding and new symbols will fall into their place to create another chance at a win. This feature ends up acting almost as free mini-spins.
Free Falls: Spin at least three Scatter symbols and you will activate the Free Falls feature, which includes 10 Free Falls (which are actually re-named free spins) and the number of times you win will be collected and recorded under the reels in marbles. If you spin any additional Scatter symbols during the Free Falls, you will receive an extra five Free Falls.
Once you have used up your Free falls the next stage is activated and a spaceship flies across the screen dropping the marbles into four cups, where you can win a prize or activate the Jackpot Game.
Jackpot Game: If you land three marbles in the jackpot cup in the Free Falls bonus, you will activate the Jackpot Game. Here you need to land three marbles in any of the five jackpot cups, each corresponding to the jackpots (Rapid, Mini, Midi, Major, and Mega).
If you land three in a certain cup, you win that jackpot.

Our verdict on Cosmic Fortune
Net Entertainment have created quite an entertaining slot with Cosmic Fortune, predominantly due to the fact there are five progressive jackpots on offer that can be won in quite an arcade-game way. However, since the jackpots are casino-specific they won’t get up into the millions.
While they have disguised the Free Spins as Free Falls, they aren’t anything new except that they act as the gateway to the Jackpot Game. While 10 free spins isn’t much, when we include the fact that we can win additional spins just by landing an extra Scatter, we have to say it is quite a substantial feature.
Overall Cosmic Fortune is quite a fun slot, but don’t expect to become a millionaire like you could with their popular progressive Mega Fortune.
