The online gaming software developer Rival is the originator of a new genre of online slot games that are known as i-sots, which is a short form for interactive slots. The special feature of i-slots is that it has a storyline running through it and the plot unfolds as the player wagers more and more. The online slots game has special skill rounds that can actually influence which way the plot will turn. The latest i-slot, Cosmic Quest was released a few months ago and is reportedly enjoying great popularity in some of the online casinos powered by Rival.
Cosmic Quest is a 5-reel and 20-payline slot game with a bonus game. It does not have a progressive jackpot but a fixed jackpot of 5,000x. The coin values range from $0.01 to $0.25 and the game has a maximum coin limit of 200. One of the best aspects about Cosmic Quest is that it offers a free practice mode that allows online players to get accustomed to the online slots game before they start playing with real money.
All online slots games today feature special themes, and Cosmic Quest has a space theme, which is very popular. The complete name of the game is Cosmic Quest: Mission Control Episode 1. This not only gives the player an idea of the storyline but also indicates that sequels are in the offing. Many of Rivals, i-slots already have sequels. The icons in Cosmic Quest are astronauts, rockets, space food items, satellites, toy guns, cats and monkeys with space suits and a lady pilot in pink. The rocket is the wild symbols, which appears in the free spins and fills up the entire reel. The monkey is the scatter symbol. When 3 or more Scatter Monkey symbols appear anywhere on the screen the player gets 10 free spins. The pink pilot is the bonus symbol. 3 or more pink pilots appearing anywhere on the screen trigger the Asteroid-Blasteroid bonus round. As in all Rival i-slot games, the bonus round is skill based. Asteroid-Blasteroid is a game that is played over 5 stages. Each stage takes the player into a different rocket ship and space environment. The player wins coins depending on the number of asteroids he blasts. The largest asteroid is worth 200 coins; the next asteroid is worth 400 coins, the smaller, pink asteroid is worth 600 coins and then smallest asteroid worth 800 coins.
Cosmic Quest has excellent graphics, animation and sound effects. The first scene itself recreates the excitement of space travel. The visual of the countdown and rocket take off is so appealing that the players will want to return to the game again and again.
Cosmic Quest can be played in the following Rival online casinos: Lion Slots, Sloto Cash, Club Vegas USA, Slots of Fortune and Simon Says Casino.
