An alien themed slot machine, Cosmic Invaders is available on the Quickfire platform, at Microgaming casinos. The obvious inspiration here is the alien invasion motif, which is so often present in movies, games or TV series that us humans enjoy. Despite the somewhat older look, the slot has plenty of paylines, 30 used on 5 reels. There is a maximum payout of $3,750, and among the features there are Wild Invaders, Alien Picking and Cosmic Free Spins.
Betting and Prizes
A wager which is placed in Cosmic Invaders online slot will use 1 to 30 lines, with 1 to 10 chips per line, and with a chip size that reaches $0.25. If you add it all up, you get a line bet of $2.50 and a total wager of $75 for a single round.
If you have a combo of five wild symbols, it will bring you a prize of 1,500x the line bet, so up to 15,000 coins, or $3,750 cash.
Cosmic Invaders Slot Features
The stacked wild symbol gets the Green Alien image on it, with the head of a happy looking green fellow showing on it. This is a wild that appears in regular size most of the time, on all the reels, and which is known for its ability to substitute for other symbols. It doesn’t do it for scatters or bonus symbols though. Should the wild appear from left to right on a line, with two or more symbols, it will pay its own prize which can go up to 1,500x.
Wild Invaders is the name of one of the three features which the game can trigger. There are UFO ships on top of the middle three reels, and sometimes they will drop stacked wilds on them. It triggers at random, so there is nothing you can do to get it.
With Alien Picking, the trigger is the presence of the UFO sign on the 1st and 5th reels, scattered on them. You have to choose one of five aliens shown on the screen, and a prize will be offered once that’s done.
Cosmic Free Spins needs you to have a certain number of scattered icons present, the ones with the Purple Aliens on them. 3 to 5 such symbols will bring you 6 to 8 Cosmic Free Spins. The added feature in their case is the wild reel that is used, on one of the three middle reels.
Theme & Design
Cosmic Invaders theme is not uncommon, and so I’ve had a chance to see better designs from games that have similar topics. There are various alien related icons on the reels, but the design seems older, so they don’t always look their best.
You should try out Cosmic Invaders Microgaming video slot mostly for the theme choice or the multiple features present in it. The top payout isn’t that big though, and the graphics are also on the older side.
