Get Your Five Reels a Day
Fruit is good for you, especially when that fruit is responsible for fattening your bank balance. The dragon fruit, pears and oranges that surface in Cosmic Fruit have the potential to do just that, all while treating you to a satisfying whoosh as they’re propelled at warp speed into the ether. Spin the reels and see for yourself how satisfying this game can be, especially when you rack up a win and the fruit explode into chunks.
Cosmic Fruit is a 20 payline game with a bet per line that can be set between 0.03 and 3, resulting in a maximum stake of 60 per spin. The number of paylines can be reduced if desired and there’s the usual autoplay and max bet buttons. If you’re looking for audio controls you’ll find them above the reels. There’s not much of a soundtrack really, with the bulk of the audio coming courtesy of the actions that are triggered by wins and spins. Despite being set in space, there isn’t a lot by way of a galactic background to gaze in awe at. Booming Games have plumped for a blurred backdrop that allows the fruit to form the focal point.
Wild About Fruit
The value of the game symbols varies greatly, markedly more than those found in other slots from the same developer. Five oranges, for example, are only worth 90 but five pears are worth 3,000. Scatter is a starfruit, a fitting choice for a cosmic slot. It will trigger 10 free spins when three scatter symbols appear in view. Wild is the game’s best looking symbol, a pear-topped fruit cocktail caught mix-explosion. If Saturn’s rings were made of fruit juice, this is what they would look like. Five wilds are worth 30,000.
There’s a gamble feature built in to Cosmic Fruit just as there is with most of this developer’s slots. It’s a straightforward 50/50 gamble that can be taken any time you’ve racked up a win and can even be used when you’ve been awarded free spins, though you may decide that 10 spins is more than enough to be going on with rather than risk it all in the pursuit of glory. While free spins are being collected, it’s possible to win another 10 if three more scatter symbols appear.
There’s not a whole lot more to Cosmic Fruit in terms of features. Booming Games are great at graphics and animations, and they find some interesting uses for scatters and wilds, but that’s about the extent of their talents. In truth, there’s no obligation to cram each slot they design with a myriad different features, but even a solitary feature game would be nice. There’s scope here for piloting space rockets towards planets made of fruit; for having expanding wilds; for firing fruit at aliens, but none of these possibilities are explored.
Loads of Fruity Fun
Cosmic Fruit is a medium variance game, just like its sister slots, all of which have very similar gameplay. Try the likes of Chicago Nights or Chow’s Chance and see for yourself how closely these games resemble one another in terms of wild and scatter bonuses.
Alternatively, if you’re simply looking for other fruit-based games to play, knock yourself out: the gaming industry’s full of them. In particular, you might find Energy Fruits to be to your liking. It’s a lively 5-reel slot from BeeFee that’s a whole lotta fun.
Cosmic Fruit is another fine looking slot from Booming Games, even if it fails to innovate or to offer anything genuinely new. Make no mistake though, this is a fun game to play, as fruit based slots often are. It’s hard to escape the feeling that thematically this is an opportunity missed, but credit where credit’s due: the sound effects and animations that grace Cosmic Fruit are top notch.
