ALL ABOUT CAZINO COSMOS SLOT REVIEW
Yggdrasil are a highly creative Scandanavian casino game developer whose back catalogue includes the slot Cazino Zeppelin which is something of a cult classic and regularly makes it onto lists of the top high variance slots of all time.
So when news got out that a follow up to Zeppelin was on the cards there was a lot of excitement and anticipation around what could be done to top the thrill of the original. Part of the joy of Zeppelin is in its simplicity and Yggdrasil have wisely kept much of the main elements of the game the same – it centers around sticky wilds and free spins. And where they have added more elements – in the Collection Free Spins feature – they’ve created some a really cool add-on that enhances the game and creates excitement without over-complicating the set-up.
This is a slick and mad looking game and a worthy follow-up to its predecessor.
Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
If there is a theme to Cazino Cosmos it is surely Intergalactic Steampunk! The game features a ‘matriarch’ called Stella and a peculiar group of alien followers. The backdrop to the reels is a starry galaxy viewed through the front window of your spacecraft.
Low value symbols in the game are the four card suits – spades, clubs, diamonds and hearts. The premium symbols are the four characters – a steampunk wine merchant, a weird looking big-eared cat, a bird-like top-hatted creature, and a gent with a big moustache who delivers 200x for five on a payline.
Stella the matriarch is the wild and substitutes for all others.
Cazino Cosmos Features
The free spins round is central to this game and you’ll need to unlock it to experience the true potential of the slot. You need free spins scatters to land on the reels as follows:
3 Scatters = 10 free spins + 4x win
4 Scatters = 15 free spins + 4x win
5 Scatters = 20 free spins + 4x win
The key to free spins is the wild. When you trigger the round, ANY wild that is present on the trigger spin becomes sticky and stays for the duration of your free spins. Further, any wild that lands during the bonus round will be sticky too.
Should you land a wild on every reel during the bonus round then you acquire 5 more free spins. Once again, the wilds that triggered the spins are sticky too.
Collection Free Spins
The free spins round follows the same format at that in Cazino Cosmos. But to keep things fresh, Yggdrasil have added a further feature to the slot – Collection Free Spins. For each reel there is a collectible wild symbol. Each time you land a wild on a reel you will add to the meter above it. Once you have filled the meter (5 wilds required) you set off the Collection Free Spins.
The Collection Free Spins are the same as standard free spins but with the following additions:
Reel 1 – Card Shot Free Spins – 2 random sticky wilds and 10 free spins.
Reel 2 – Hack Free Spins – 5 extra spins – 15 free spins in total.
Reel 3 – Zero Gravity Free Spins – when a wild is in reach the reels can be nudged up or down 1 place at the end of a spin.
Reel 4 – Mutation Free Spins – one random premium symbol is chosen for each spin. If it lands it transforms into a sticky wild.
Reel 5 – Expansion Free Spins – new wilds appear in double stacks
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Cazino Cosmos is an excellent follow-on from Zeppelin. It re-produces the gameplay of the first slot entirely with the sticky wild-free spins combo before adding more than a dash of enhanced gameplay with extra wilds, free spins and transforming symbols to create a whole new level of excitement in the Collection Free Spins round. All great in theory but as ever we must caution that this is a high variance game and takes time to release its treasures. So tread carefully.
