Time to head to the stars (or is that the astral plane?) in this Cosmic Voyager slot with 5 reels and 10 pay lines full of expanding scatter symbols.
We are going to be genuine and say that the slot theme for this Cosmic voyager slot game isn’t for us. We don’t mind crazy wacky themes, as long as you feel like there’s a story behind it, but here it’s just a strange mix of the mystical and planetary that don’t quite mesh.
Still, if you are not the type of slot gambler who gets swayed by theme, then read on. Because this slot created by Thunderkick has plenty to recommend it, and no it’s not just the fact that it bears a passing resemblance (in how it works) to the famous Book of Ra Deluxe 6 slot.
Instead, it’s that it takes those familiar mechanics and gives you more of what you love.
Much like the Mysterious Egypt slot game, on any spin one symbol may expand to cover the reel it’s on. How do you trigger this feature?
By landing a stack of the same symbol on reel 1. Then any of the same symbols anywhere on the reel will expand and pay like a scatter.
What does that mean? It means that it will pay on all 10 bet lines regardless of whether the symbols are adjacent to each other. In other words, depending on how many symbols are on the reels, you’ll get 3, 4 or 5 of a kind wins on all 10 paylines simultaneously.
How often do you get a stack of the same symbols on reel 1? Probably not as often as you’d like, but this is a high variance game after all.
And it could happen on any spin, but it’s more likely to happen in the Cosmic Voyager free spins bonus round.
Why? Because when you hit 3 scatter wilds (both the same symbol represented by the Cosmic Voyager slot logo) you’ll trigger 10 free spins.
At this point, any mid to high paying symbol that land on reel 1 will expand and trigger the expanding scatter pay symbol. They don’t have to land to cover the reel, just one is enough to trigger this feature.
It’s kills the anticipation of knowing which symbol will bring you fortune like in the Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead slot, but on the other hand, it gives you the opportunity for big wins with not one but 5 symbols.
A price worth paying in our honest opinion.

The Cosmic Voyager symbol: This is both the Scatter and the Wild symbol. It substitutes for all symbols both in the Base game and the Bonus game.
Expanding symbols feature: 3 stacked symbols on the first reel trigger the Expanding symbols feature. Any symbol identical to the stacked symbols anywhere on the reels will then expand and pay like a scatter over all 10 paylines, regardless of which reel they are on.
The Cosmic Voyager Wild/Scatter symbol never expands.
The Free Spins: 3 (or more) Cosmic Voyager symbols during the base game triggers 10 free spins. In the free spin, any mid or high paying symbol on reel 1 will expand and cover the reels. This will trigger the expanding symbol feature across the rest of the game.
The symbols in play are the blue pyramid, the green cube and the orange icosahedron for mid-level. The high-pay symbols are the star symbol and the golden mask symbol.
3 (or more) Cosmic Voyager symbols during the Bonus game will give you a re-trigger of 10 Cosmic Voyager free spins.
We weren't sold on the theme, but you can't deny that with a top win of 5,000x your bet and some expanding scatter pays, there's not a fair element of fun here.
What we like here is that Thunderkick has taken the familiar 10 payline Book of Ra slot mechanics and made it their own, without doing a true copy. It feels fresh, all whilst giving you the same if not more opportunities for wins.
Now if only they could clean up the theme and make it feel a little less messy, we might even be willing to come back here more than once.
Or you can play Cosmic Voyager at one of these mobile casinos:
