Science fiction movies and arcade games with aliens are very popular forms of entertainment. Online casino software providers are well aware of this and they regularly create slot games with an outer space theme. This theme gives ample scope to exploit graphics ability, incorporate audio visual side effects and have a variety of bonus games on the second screen. This article looks at some of the best online slots in this genre produced by different software providers.

Rival Gaming is well known for its genre of slot games known as i-slots or interactive slots. One of the special features of i-slots is skill based bonus games. Rival Gaming online casinos offer two outer space themed i-slots titled Cosmic Quest 1 and Cosmic Quest 2. Cosmic Quest 1 is sub titled Mission Control. The symbols on the reels are astronauts, rockets, space food items, satellites, ray-guns and cats and monkeys with space suits. However, the highlight of Cosmic Quest Mission Control is an arcade style skill based bonus round called Asteroid-Blasteroid. This includes five stages, with each stage having a unique environment. The player is awarded credits depending on the number of asteroids he blasts.

Microgaming has released the maximum number of online casino games. Its 400th game was released in April 2009. This was The Great Galaxy Grab, an excellent slot game befitting the occasion.
