Cosmic Invaders Review

Cosmic Invaders Video Pokie by Microgaming

Cosmic Invaders is an online pokie by Microgaming that has a space aged theme. Some Aliens have come to Earth to invade the planet. There is a futuristic feel to the game. The interesting thing about the future is that it is more of a retro future. This future is based on a vision that is decades old. For people that are into the science fiction productions of recent years, it may seem insulting. However, it does make for a unique and interesting game with the flying saucers holding up the reels against a space background.

Cosmic Invaders Features

This game features 9-through-ace symbols, wild symbols, scatter symbols, and other symbols like a moon and what looks like a ray gun. The wild symbols which can be stacked occasionally drop down from the three flying saucers. The Earth, and the satellite make up the rest of the symbols on the reels. The green male alien is the wild symbol while the purple female alien is the scatter. When the player gets at least three scatters, he can get up to 8 free spins. One of the three reels in the middle becomes a wild during the spins

When the Wild symbol is matched 5 times across the reels, the player will get the largest payout of the game. This is definitely the symbol that players should be looking to match in the game if they want to win big with this pokie.

One other feature that this game has is the bonus round in which the player gets to pick the Alien. During this bonus round, the UFO warning sign appears on the first reel and the last reel of the pokie.

Cosmic Invaders features 5 reels and 30 pay-lines. This may be lower than some of the other pokie games released by Microgaming but he winning potential is still there. The minimum amount that the player can bet is 1 coin at 0.01. The maximum that the player can bet is roughly 10 coins per line at $0.25 each. This totals the maximum bet at $75. The jackpot that the player could win is 1500 which gives the player a grand total of $3,750. The game has a non-progressive jackpot. However, the winning potential is still attractive enough for players that are new and expert players that have played a lot of online pokies.

Cosmic Invaders Overall

Overall, Microgaming has put together an interesting game. The visuals are great with the theme. Even though it does have a dated type of future, it does make for a nice nod to space aged science fiction. The graphics are cartoon like which add to the enjoyment of the game for science fiction lovers and casual players alike. There is only one disadvantage and it is that there is no progressive jackpot. However, the game is otherwise a worthy effort. It can be accessed at Microgaming powered Casinos.
