The Cosmic Quest Online Pokies
January 29, 2018
Cosmic Quest is a series of two online pokies from Rival Gaming with the popular space theme. They can be played at Australian online casinos like Joe Fortune and Ignition Casino. They have similar looking graphics that have a comical feel about them. The audio visual effects take to back to the arcade games. These two pokies have interactive bonus features, which are a Rival Gaming speciality. Such pokies have been given the name i-slots.
Each of the Cosmic Quest has its own identity. The first one is called Episode 1 Mission Control. The symbols on the reels are astronauts, rockets, space food items, satellites, laser guns, animals in space suits and a female pilot in pink. The rocket is the wild symbol and it awards the highest payout of 5,000 times the line bet. The scatter monkey symbol triggers 10 free spins. The rocket becomes an expanding wild in the free spins. The pink pilot is the bonus symbol and it triggers the Asteroid-Blasteroid interactive bonus game on the second screen. It is played over five stages. In each stage you take a different rocket to another area in space. There you aim at the asteroids and blast them into smithereens with your weapon. You win bonuses depending on the number of asteroids you blast. The payouts are larger for the smaller asteroids because these are more difficult to hit. The smallest asteroid is worth 800 times the bet.
Episode 2 Mystery Planets is the name of the second Cosmic Quest online pokie. The high paying symbols are planets. You can identify the ringed Saturn and the red Mars. The low paying symbols are asteroids and space equipment. The rocket is again the wild symbol and awards the highest line payout of 5,000 coins. But it is an expanding wild even in the base game. The payout is multiplied by the number of rocket symbols on the reels. The jet pack triggers the free spins. Three scatter symbols award 10 free spins, four of them award 25 free spina and five award 50 free spins. All payouts are doubled in this feature. The interactive bonus game on the second screen is called Scatterstronaut. It is triggered by three or more spaceman symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You are given your own spaceship that you have to navigate through a cave filled with obstacles. You have to use your motoring skills to weave your spaceship around them. Your bonus depends on how far you get through the cave.
