Gameplay Interactive is firing players into space with its Cosmic Boost slot. The space genre in slots is fairly saturated, but this title does throw a cute little alien sidekick in to help give it a little edge over its competitors. The slot comes loaded with some good special features, including a free spins round and a hold and spin style re-spin bonus. Let’s take a look at what else is on offer in this Cosmic Boost slot review.
The design and gameplay of the Cosmic Boost slot game are very easy to adjust to. From a visual perspective, the game has a slightly arcade-game feel. It is set in outer space, with a Tron-style grid under the reels and a floating robot head blinking at you on the left-hand side. Earth is floating around in the background, bathed in the blue light of space. The reels themselves have some robotic elements attached as part of their border. It’s a lot of fun to look at and definitely adds some charm to the game.
Under the reels is a control panel that looks as though it has been taken from a spaceship. Here, you can adjust your stake using the line bet option. There are 30 paylines across a 5x3 grid, with all 30 being active for every bet. This Cosmic Boost slot review would not be complete without information about the bet limits. So, the minimum you can wager per line is €0.03, giving a total bet of €0.90, while the maximum is €6 per line, giving a maximum of €180. This is definitely a slot that is better suited to higher rollers.

All of the higher-paying symbols in Cosmic Boost are rocks of some kind. The blue one is the highest, paying out 150x your line bet for five, 50x for four, 10x for three, and 2x for two. The green, purple, and orange all pay 100x for five, and 5x for three. The only difference is that the green pays 30x for four, while the other two pay 25x.
This is the same set-up with the royal symbols, with one paying higher than all of the rest. The highest one is the Ace, which pays 75x for five. The other four, the King, Queen, Jack, and 10, all pay 50x for five, 10x for four, and 5x for three.
There are two main bonus rounds in the slot. The first is the Cosmic Boost free spins round. This is triggered when you land three or more of the scatter symbols on your reels. Regardless of the number of scatters you land, you will be given six free spins to enjoy. During the round, any wins that occur featuring a wild will be doubled. It is also possible to continue to retrigger the spins during the round.
The other main Cosmic Boost bonus round is the re-spins round. This is triggered when you land six of the booster coin symbols. When this happens, they will hold in place and you will be given three re-spins. Any booster symbols that land in this will hold on the reels. As well as this, every time you land a booster, the respins will reset to three. When the round finishes, all booster symbols will be added up and paid out. What’s more, if you trigger this during the free spins round, then all wins will be doubled or tripled.
Both of these features can also be randomly triggered when the robot on the left-hand side of the reels comes to life. When this happens, he will either trigger the free spins round, some respins, or give you a big win.
The Cosmic Boost RTP is listed as a solid 96.99% by Gameplay Interactive. There is no volatility information made available in the game. In our experience, when playing for this Cosmic Boost slot review, we found that big wins were very hard to come by, with a lot of small wins paying out.
