Cosmic Fortune Progressive Jackpots
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.
Cosmic Fortune Jackpot Game
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.
Cosmic Fortune Average Win

Cosmic Fortune Jackpot Payout
As stated, the Rapid Jackpot in 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 the 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.
Cosmic Fortune Gameplay
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.
How to Win the Cosmic Fortune Jackpot?
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 within 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.
Cosmic Fortune Video Slot Game Tutorial
Cosmic Fortune is a video slot that is built out of 5 separate reels with 3 rows and 15 fixed bet lines. Both the bet level and coin value are adjustable and winning bet lines are formed by identical symbols on a bet line and on adjacent reels from utmost left to the right. The special game features of video slot Cosmic Fortune are the Avalanche Feature, symbol substituting Wilds, Scatters that activate the Free Falls mode, the Free Falls Bonus game and the jackpot bonus game in which coin wins and one of the 5 jackpots can be won.
The Avalanche Feature
The Avalanche Feature means instead of a spin, the symbols drop, like an avalanche, from top to bottom on the play screen. If a winning bet line is formed the symbols of that bet line (except for Scatter symbols) will disappear after which a (free) avalanche follows to fill up the left spaces with new symbols. As long as winning bet lines are formed their symbols will disappear and new avalanches will follow, both during the main game as well as in Free Falls mode.
Symbol substituting Wilds
The Wild symbols in video slot Cosmic Fortune substitute for all other symbols, except for Scatter symbols, to create the highest winning bet line combination. Both during the main game as well as in Free Falls mode Wild symbols can appear anywhere on reel 2 and 4 only.
Scatter symbols and Free Falls mode
When 3 or more Scatter symbols simultaneously appear anywhere on the reels during the main game the Free Falls mode is activated. For 3 Scatters 10 Free Falls are granted and any Scatter symbol extra that appeared will reward 5 extra Free Falls. During the Free Falls mode no extra Free Falls can be won.
The symbols (including Wild symbols) that form a winning bet line after a Free Fall are transformed into ‘marbles’ that will be used in the Free Falls Bonus Game.
The Free Falls Bonus Game
After all Free Falls are played the Free Falls Bonus Game will open with on the play screen 6 Collector Cups depicted: 3 Coin Win Cups and 2 Jackpot Bonus Game cups.
A space ship cruising in the top of the play screen will drop the marbles that were won during the Free Falls and every marble hitting a Coin Win Cup (logically) will pay a coin win. The value of the Coin Win Cups depends on the height of the bet that was played within the game round that activated the Free Falls.
If 3 marbles hit the Jackpot Bonus Game Cup access to the Jackpot Bonus Game is granted. The spiraled cup randomly releases marbles that were dropped into it in the actual Bonus Game cup below.
The Jackpot Bonus Game
When the Bonus Cup in the Free Falls Bonus Game is hit by 3 marbles the Jackpot Bonus Game is activated. Video slot Cosmic Fortune has 3 locally accumulated progressive jackpots an 2 fixed jackpots. The height of the latter two depends on which bet level is played, as is the chance of winning any of the jackpots. The jackpots that can be won are:
- 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 pay out value of € 4.000;
- The Major Jackpot: a progressive jackpot with an expected jackpot pay out value of € 13.500;
- The Mega Jackpot: a progressive jackpot with an expected jackpot pay out value of € 100.000.
The play screen of the Jackpot Bonus Game of video slot Cosmic Fortune displays 4 Coin Win Cups (of which the value is determined by the bet level) and a Jackpot Cup for each one of the 5 jackpots. The space ship in the top of the screen will drop 50 marbles. Every marble hitting a Coin Win Cup will reward that specific coin win.
When 3 marbles hit a Jackpot Cup that specific jackpot is won. The big collector in the middle will randomly release won marbles to the Mega Jackpot Cup beneath it. Only one jackpot per Jackpot Bonus Game can be won.
