Launched on January 24, 2019, Cazino Cosmos is a casino game from Yggdrasil Gaming. It is the second installment in the developer’s two-game Cazino series. Incidentally, the October 2015 slot called Cazino Zeppelin is the first installment in the serialized Cazino. Other cosmos-inspired rival slot games include Wild Space from Genesis Gaming, Cosmic Reels from MetaGU, Cosmo Mix from Spinmatic, and Cosmic Eclipse from NetEnt.
Scientifically, a “cosmos” is a collective term for the seemingly orderly universe. Like in Cazino Zeppelin, the Cazino Cosmos players match two, three, four, or five symbols.
Cazino Cosmos Game Characteristics
Cazino Cosmos, a high volatility game, has twenty fixed pay lines on its 5X3 grid. The Cazino Cosmos symbols include: a golden “Free Z Spins” coin; the so-called collection wilds (also substituting) consisting of a beauty wearing a pink wig; an overweight man with a clean-shaven head, has a carnie moustache, and is wearing a monocle and a beaver hat sideways; a man wearing a suit, a beaked mask, and a beaver hat; a bat holding cards; a wine-drinking man with glowing eyes; clubs suit, spades suit, diamonds suit, and hearts suit.
After loading, the Cazino Cosmos software reminds about its free spins-triggering sticky wilds and the five ladies associated with free spins. After pressing anywhere as instructed, the Cazino Cosmos players get six collection wilds as welcome bonus before pressing “Continue” and being taken to the interface where they set the coin value—the auto play icon is the only other thing that can be set, automating between 10 and 1000 game rounds. When ready, the players press the spin icon sandwiched between the “auto play” and “max bet” icons.
The fifteen Cosmos’ coin values are: $0.005, $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.07, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.30, $0.50, $0.70, and $1.00. Their corresponding Cazino Cosmos cash bets are: $0.10 (the minimum total bet), $0.20, $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $1.40, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00, $10.00, $14.00, and $20.00 (the maximum total bet).
These are the Cazino Cosmos payouts for three, four, or five matching symbols, respectively. The clean-shaven and moustached man pays X40, X300, and X2000. The bat pays X25, X150, and X175. The beaked symbol pays X30, X200, and X1000. The symbol with glowing eyes pays X20, X130, and X500.
The clubs suit pays X7, X50, and X170. The spades suit pays X6, X40, and X150. The diamonds suit pays X5, X30, and X125. The hearts suit pays X5, X30, and X100.
Two, three, four, and five matching “Free Spins” symbols pay: 40 coins; ten free spins and 40 coins; fifteen free spins and 40 coins; and twenty free spins and 40 coins.
The Cazino Cosmos game not only converts Wild symbols into sticky Wilds during its free spins, but also retains the wild symbols for the following free spin round, wherein players get five more free spins whenever more than one Wild symbols appear on a reel. The free spins, which are based on how the five wilds have been collected, are divided into five parts: card shot, hack, zero gravity, mutation, and expansion.
The Cazino Cosmos software is good. Its sounds are unique, especially the sound effect resembling that of a compression release brake. The vivid graphics range from the colorful symbols to the astronomical observatory in the grid’s background.
