Cosmic Eclipse is a new NetEnt slot machine that is produced in collaboration with the Betsson Group, to which it will be an exclusive title, at least for a period of time. Previous collaborations saw the title become available globally after half a year and this might be the case with Cosmic Eclipse as well. As for the theme, it’s based on the universe and the various stellar bodies that are part of it, and that’s something that you can see in the game’s symbols.
They went with a 5 reel design in this case, one with 10 active lines available every single round. There are some decent payouts to be had in the game, even up to 400x the stake, which could amount to $40,000 cash. Feature wise, it doesn’t do as well, with only a re-spin feature provided, though one that can lead you to having an entire screen filled with a single type of symbol.
Betting and Prizes
The bets in games that are offered by NetEnt tend to follow the same lines usually, and that’s what we’re seeing in Cosmic Eclipse as well. There are 10 fixed lines, so that’s one component that you can’t change in any way. On the other hand, you have the level of the bet that you can take up to 10, along with the coin denomination that varies from $0.01 to $1. With that in mind, you can end up placing wagers of up to $10 on a single line, or $100 for all of them.
There are certain situations in the game, which result from the available features, where you can end up having an entire screen filled with a single type of symbol, so getting 10 active lines covered this way. The best prize of the game, of up to 400x your stake, can be offered this way. It has a maximum value of $40,000. Another aspect of the game that’s worth keeping in mind is that average RTP, set to 96.52%, which is a good number.
Cosmic Eclipse Slot Features
This is a simpler slot machine than you’d expect, especially since it’s coming from NetEnt and looking like a modern release thanks to its theme. There are no scatters or wild symbols inside, but there will be a bonus symbol that will be allowed to appear on only one reel.
The bonus symbol is called a Cosmic Swirl, and you will see it appear on the 5th reel. It’s purple and black, and it sort of looks like you’d imagine a black hole to be like. When this symbol lands on its reel, then the swirl from the right side of the screen will become active, picking one of the symbols at random and starting to collect it in a meter that goes around the swirl. Re-spins are started next, being used to add extra symbols of that type in the meter if they appear on the reels. Once you get no more symbols of that type for the swirl, the ones that were collected up to that point will be placed on the reels, in random positions. If you manage to collect 15 symbols, then the entire screen will be filled and you could win as much as 400x your stake.
Theme & Design
The cosmic theme doesn’t look quite natural in this case, but there is no question regarding the design quality. You have planets, asteroids, black holes and other celestial bodies in the game, as symbols or as part of the background image.
Cosmic Eclipse gives the player a very short list of features, but the quality is there and the RTP is high enough, so you’re not going to complain about the lack of wilds or scatters.
