The wombat says: Want to get back to basics? Then have go at this space-themed slot from Microgaming that has no bells, whistles or bonus features of at all – just 3 simple reels and a ‘Spin’ button.
But it does feature a cat in a spacesuit which is always nice. Maybe he’s been warped over from the Stardust slot – or beamed over.
Look and Feel
Microgaming make all sort of casino games like Jacks or Better video poker, roulette and blackjack but here they have tried to create a replica of a Las Vegas slot machine, and they’ve done a decent job. Here you will meet the courageous castronaut who fancies exploring outer space in search of extraterrestrial fish and fresh milk. An animated galaxy makes up the background and the soundtrack to the slot is a whole host of cosmic sounds and firing laser guns.
OK, the design is simple and outdated but this is an old slot, so what do you expect? Some of you might decide that Microgaming have much better-looking games on offer like the Jason and the Golden Fleece slot and Jurassic World. And you’d be right.
Cosmic Cat Game Play
Cosmic Cat has 3 reels and just the one pay-line. These old fashioned reels spin on a weird drum-like thingy in the top left hand corner. Underneath the reels, you’ll also find our feline friend in front of the Cosmic Cat logo who is sporting a galaxy on his shoulder. As you do.
There are only 3 symbols on your reels and they are made up of the intrepid Cosmic Cat himself, traditional slot machine single/double/triple bars and a cheeky-looking mouse. Three mixed bars on the pay-line will pay you out some moolah, while the moggy symbol also acts as the Wild symbol in this slot – which means he’ll substitute for all of the other symbols to help you scoop more wins.
But this generous little space kitty has another function too, Wombat Fans. If you land x1 or x2 of the cats anywhere on the pay-line you will scoop either 2x or 5x your initial bet respectively. Cheers Microgaming!
How It Works
The first thing to do is set your wager level by using the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons on the menu bar at the bottom; now you can decide the bet level by using the ‘Bet One’ or ‘Bet Max’ buttons. This essentially doubles your bet and the prizes available as you can see from the pay-table. This means the biggest coin prize available is 1000x for the three cats on the pay-line. Meow!
Cosmic Cat Bonus Features
Sadly for us Wombat Fans, this game doesn’t have any bonus round or extra features which is still slightly disappointing for those of us who liked the theme and were hoping for at least a Scatter symbol or Gamble Feature! It certainly gives us paws for thought. Ba dum tish.
It’s pretty simple slot fans: just spin the reels and hope for a win while you sit back and enjoy the sci-fi sound effects. And that’s your lot. If you are big fans of bonus extras and second screen antics then Cosmic Cat slot won’t float your boat, but if you like slots without the complicated rules and fancy game-play try it out, you might just get an astronomical win…
Wombat score: 3/5
