Cosmic Eclipse slot is a futuristic design that should instantly remind the player of Netent's ubiquitous Starburst game which online casinos so often hand free spins out for, therefore you must surely have played at one time or another! Luckily Cosmic Eclipse has a little more life than that old chestnut, immediately apparent with the swirl of a black hole to the right of the transparent reels and brightly-coloured planets inhabiting this dark world to the tune of modernistic music and sounds. Now that black hole has me worried, being as their pull is so strong not even light can escape, so what hope is there of our bankroll defying gravity?
The game is quite straighforward and we are given a standard grid of 5 reels and 3 rows with 10 paying lines from left to right only. Symbols are stacked and are in two forms, three planets and three asteroids. The planets are the higher pays with 5-of-a-kinds paying 60x bet for the Orange and Red planet, 35x for the Yellow, 15x for the green with turquoise, blue and purple asteroids paying 5, 4 and 3x respectively for a full line. You do see Wilds singly on all reels with no dedicated pay, but usually this means equal value to the highest icon. So where's this black hole?
On reel 5 you will notice a single symbol consisting of bright pink matter spiralling toward the black hole at its centre. This is replicated in large scale to the right of the reel set. When this lands on reel 5 a symbol on the grid will be selected and all of them in view plus any Wilds will be added into the 15 spaces around the black hole. The reels then re-spin and any wins are paid before any further of the chosen symbol or Wild anywhere on the grid are added to the 15 spaces. There are re-spins until no more of the chosen symbol or Wilds appear. When this happens the grid turns black and the black hole fires the symbols out and places them onto the reels in such a way you will be guaranteed at least one winning combination. This is similar to the grid fill you may have seen on Quickspin's Second Strike slot.
Cosmic Eclipse slot looks good and displays great imagination from Netent with the unique bonus game mechanic along with bright and crisp graphics and effects. There is potential for some good 3-figure times bet hits in the base game as well as the feature, although the feature is where you'd be most likely to get the maximum 600x bet full screen of the top symbol. The RTP is quite high at 96.52% and when added to the fact the feature isn't too rare, makes for an enjoyable session. Netent's old stalwart Starburst has certainly been eclipsed here...
