Join a steampunk space crew and aim for the stars in Cazino Cosmos, a superbly designed 5 reel, 20 payline video slot. Created by Yggdrasil Gaming, it comes with a standard bonus round that awards up to 20 free spins (initially) with sticky wilds. Collect special wilds to fill meters, each of which can trigger a free spins round with extra wilds, nudges and transforming symbols. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile device from between 10p and £20 per spin.
As usual for an Yggdrasil Gaming title, the design here is very high end. There’s a Victorian, steampunk feel to the visuals. A mechanical spacecraft is the setting. On the reels you’ll see lower value heart, diamond, club and spade symbols. They’re joined by a cat in a space helmet, a pair of mechanical passengers and the burly ship’s general. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the latter for a payout of 4, 30 or 200 times your bet.
There are 2 types of wild in play – standard wilds and collection wilds. Both of the substitute for everything bar the free spins scatter. Land a collection wild and it fills part of the meter at the top of that reel.
Once a meter is full, you’ll trigger the Collection Free Spins feature. With 10 free spins awarded, these come with special extras – what you get depends on the reel that triggered the feature:
- Reel 1 – Card Shot Free Spins – 2 sticky wilds are added at the beginning of this feature.
- Reel 2 – Hack Free Spins – 5 extra free spins are added to your tally.
- Reel 3 – Zero Gravity Spins – the reels can nudge up or down by 1 position if that nudge means an extra wild joins the action.
- Reel 4 – Mutation Spins – on each free spin, 1 of the higher paying symbols mutates into a wild.
- Reel 5 – Expansion Spins – wilds spin 2-high in this round.
Any wilds from the triggering spin are carried through to the Collection Free Spins feature and turn sticky. Any wilds that land during these free spins also lock in place for the rest of the feature.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of the Free Spins symbol and you’ll trigger the standard Free Spins feature – on offer here are 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Any wilds from the triggering spin are carried over. The sticky wilds are in play too. In the standard and Collection Free Spins features, 5 extra free spins are added to your total if you manage to land a wild on all 5 reels.
Like most video slots in the Yggdrasil Gaming catalogue, Cazino Cosmos is very easy on the senses. The visuals are terrifically well done and the soaring soundtrack gives the game an epic feel. The gameplay is decent enough too. We landed the standard free spins regularly but found the Collection Free Spins feature much harder to come by.
We liked this galactic adventure. With its classy design and playable extras, Cazino Cosmos is an entertaining take on this ever-popular theme. It can also reward you with payouts of 11,821 times your bet! I strongly recommend you try the prequel to this game, Cazino Zeppelin, which is also excellent.
