The NetEnt jackpot video slot Cosmic Fortune was launched in 2014 to substitute for a selection of older, outdated NetEnt jackpot games. The game offers 5 jackpots to be won, of which 3 are ‘progressive’ and thus will increase every time a bet is placed on Cosmic Fortune video slot. Below you can read everything you need to know about the video slot Cosmic Fortune in terms of gameplay and how to win one of its jackpots.
Jackpot video slot Cosmic Fortune was released in November 2014 to replace 8 older NetEnt jackpot casino games. It’s the first jackpot video slot by Net Entertainment with no less than 5 jackpots (3 progressive ‘pooled’ jackpots and 2 ‘fixed’ jackpots), and the game is themed by, apparently, a popular subject under the NetEnt game developers: the space age.
The symbols on the 5 reel, 3 row and 15 (fixed) bet lines equipped video slot all refer to space creatures, objects and travellers. The game, besides its jackpots to win, has several special game features like the Avalanche Feature, symbol substituting Wilds, Free Falls and the Free Falls Bonus Game. Both the Free Falls Bonus Game as well as the Jackpot game are based on the Japanese ‘pachinko’ game, in which balls (like in a pinball game) are shot and subsequently fall down through a field of pins, hopefully hitting certain collectors that will grant a prize.
|Min Bet||€ 0.15 per game round|
|Max Bet||€ 0.75 per round|
|Average Payout Percentage||96.90%|
|Winning Jackpot Combination||3 marbles dropped in a Jackpot Collector Cup in the Jackpot Game, which is triggered by the Free Falls Bonus Game, will win one of the 5 jackpots|
|Jackpot Type||The Cosmic Fortune Jackpots are locally generated jackpots|
Video slot Cosmic Fortune has 5 jackpots: 3 progressive and 2 fixed.
The progressive jackpots, the Midi, Major and Mega jackpot, are generated by a percentage of the wagers placed by players on the game. This means these jackpots will increase every time a player places a bet on the Cosmic Fortune video slot. As a ‘local’ NetEnt jackpot game only, players in one specific NetEnt Casino will contribute to the Cosmic Fortune progressive jackpots and the jackpots therefore can only be won by the players of that specific casino. Another consequence is the height of the Cosmic Fortune jackpot amounts differ from casino to casino.
The ‘fixed’ jackpots, the Rapid and Mini jackpot, respectively will pay out €100 and €500 when won.
As stated, the Rapid Jackpot in video slot Cosmic Fortune will pay out the fixed amount of €100 and the Mini Jackpot the amount of €500. As the Midi, Major and Mega Jackpot are all ‘progressive’ jackpots (and their values therefore constantly are changing), it’s only possible to state something about their ‘expected value’ when they are hit.
The Midi Jackpot is expected to pay out €4,000 when won by a lucky player, the Major Jackpot will pay out around €13,500 and the value of the Mega Jackpot when hit is estimated to be around €100,000 on average. Of course these values are only estimations and in reality a jackpot could hold a lot less, or a lot more when a player manages to win it.
Although video slot Cosmic Fortune has the usual 5 reels with 3 rows, the symbols appear by the NetEnt patented ‘Avalanche Feature’. This means the symbols will not appear by a ‘spin’ but they fall down from top to bottom to occupy the positions on the reels. As soon as a winning bet line is formed, the symbols of that bet line will disappear after which a new (free) ‘avalanche’ follows to fill in the empty positions. As long as winning bet lines are formed, free avalanches will follow.
The Wild symbols in video slot Cosmic Fortune will substitute for any other symbol (except for Scatter symbols) and 3 (or more) Scatters will activate (at least) 10 Free Falls. In the Free Falls mode (comparable with Free Spins), all symbols that form a winning bet line will be turned into marbles. These marbles are collected and used, when all Free Falls are played, in the subsequent Free Falls Bonus Game.
In the Free Falls Bonus Game, a spaceship will drop the collected marbles through a ‘pachinko’ field of pins. The marbles can fall into a coin win collector cup, thus granting that particular coin win, but when 3 marbles hit the Bonus Cup the Cosmic Fortune Jackpot Game will open.
In the Jackpot Game of video slot Cosmic Fortune, again a pachinko field will appear. A spacecraft at the top of the play screen this time will drop a total of 50 marbles. Any marble hitting a coin win Collector Cup will win the coins, but if 3 marbles hit a Jackpot Collector Cup that specific jackpot is won.
Note: both in the Free Falls Bonus Game as well as in the Jackpot Game, the value of the coin win Collector Cups depends on the total bet that was played with in the round that activated the Free Falls. Also, the chance to win one of the Cosmic Fortune Jackpots is related to the bet level and coin value that was in effect during the Free Falls activating round.
