Everyone goes nuts for Netents pooled jackpot video slots, and rightly so, as their jackpot totals usually hit well into the multi millions. However, we shouldn’t be so foolish as to overlook their smaller, local jackpot games, like the 5 level Cosmic Fortune. Not sure of the difference between ‘local’ and ‘pooled’? Let me explain…
A pooled jackpot game is where the game has one integration, and every single casino offering that game is feeding the same, one jackpot prize pool. Every single Netent casino that offers a pooled jackpot game, such as Hall of Gods, is feeding the same jackpot, meaning that an absolutely huge player base is feeding in, with a portion of every spin topping up that total.
Local jackpots work in the same where, whereby a portion of each players spin feeds the jackpot total, however the game has it’s own integration on each casino. This means that only Casumo players feed the jackpot shown at Casumo, whilst only Royal Panda players feed the jackpot total at Royal Panda. This means a few things;
- Yes, the jackpot total will be a little less, as a smaller player base is feeding in…
- …however, if you’re playing against less players, it surely stands to reason that you have more chance of winning.
- Although the jackpots may be a little smaller, they can still reach unlimited heights.
- PLUS the jackpot amount will vary at every single casino, so you can shop around and play the game where it’s biggest.
Cosmic Fortune is the newest jackpot slot developed by Netent and has a whopping 5 different jackpot levels! All other Netent jackpot games have the standard 3 jackpot levels, which go by different names but are effectively Small, Medium and Large. But Cosmic Fortune is the first slot ever to have 5 levels;
The Rapid and Mini jackpots are both set amounts and are the same at each casino, the Rapid is the smallest at €100 and the Mini is a not-so-mini €500! The next 3 levels, Midi, Major and Mega are all fed by player spins. Every time you spin the reels in Cosmic Fortune, a percentage of your stake will feed the jackpot levels, so the more you play, the more there is to win.
Cosmic Fortune is a 5 reel, 15 line video slot with 5 jackpot totals available. It includes 2 Bonus Games, Free Falls and the Avalanche Feature, all of which try to give players even more chance of winning.
The Avalanche Feature can be seen across a number of different Netent video slots, like Gonzo’s Quest and is hugely popular amongst players. Whenever you have a winning pay line, the symbols will glow and then disappear, leaving space for more symbols to fall into their place. This is kind of like a ‘free re-spin’ as it gives you another chance at winning (and goes on and on as long as a winning pay line is created) without costing anything more!
The Free Falls feature is triggered when receiving 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere across the reels. In this feature winning symbols are transformed into marbles and the more you collect, the more you win! Then, in the Free Falls Bonus Game, a Japanese Pachinko style game where the marbles fall and can be caught in various sections, either indicating coin wins or, what we’re really here for, jackpot wins!
Some Cosmic Fortune Jackpots
The Cosmic Fortune jackpot amount will vary at every single casino, below I’ve listed some of the biggest and best totals around. These were the correct totals at the time of writing but warning: they may have increased dramatically since then!
Without a doubt, this Casumo Cosmic Fortune jackpot total is the highest that I have ever seen for this Netent video slot! Considering that only Casumo players are feeding this particular jackpot, you can see how popular this game must be. Simply log into your Casumo account, or create one if you don’t already have one and who knows, within a few spins that rather tasty jackpot amount could be yours.
Thrills, the flying casino, are thrilling enough as they are, but a huge local jackpot amount like this one on Cosmic Fortune is enough to get anyone feeling a little excited. Coupled with an amazing design, loads of achievements and bonuses for new and existing players and a huge selection of all your other favourite Netent games, Cosmic Fortune is definitely worth a spin at Thrills Casino.
iwCasino is the casino side of Interwetten and is a casino that doesn’t get enough love. They’re hugely popular amongst players and their whopping Cosmic Fortune jackpot amount shows that Netent fans just love this online casino. If you fancy winning big on Cosmic Fortune, iwCasino is one to try.
Royal Panda: €8618
This is actually a pretty low Mega jackpot total for Cosmic Fortune but I though it was worth a mention as the reason it’s quite low (although, I’d still quite like to win that much!) is because in March 2015 one lucky Royal Panda player won a respectable €17000 from a measly €3 spin! Since then, the jackpot has been steadily creeping back up and even at it’s current amount, it’s definitely worth a shot.
