Do you remember the NetEnt Q4 Roadmap? The document which supposedly outlined every new slot the brand would be putting out for the remainder of 2017? Well forget it, as NetEnt have gone rouge! This week, the software developers have not only released a brand new title which hasn’t even been hinted at before, but they’ve also gave Betsson players exclusive access to it!
The new slot, Cosmic Eclipse, follows in the steps of slots like Starburst and Sparks as it sports a minimal yet beautiful design. These kinds of slots have always been huge hits with players, and so we can’t help but think this is NetEnt’s way of thanking fans for their support over the past year. Moreover, the fact that the new game has been sprung upon us as a complete surprise makes us feel like Christmas has come early! Read on to learn more about this fantastic new game and then head over to Betsson to give it a spin.
Cosmic Eclipse – Gameplay and Features
Visually, Cosmic Eclipse is stunning. Although it’s more simplistic than some of NetEnt’s recent titles, it uses their famous minimal style to maximum effect, with bold colours and a futuristic soundtrack. The reels hang against a swirling cosmos, and symbols on the reels include different planets and meteors. Create a winning combination and you’ll also be showered with shooting stars to celebrate your success.
The slot includes two bonus features, although one is simply a regular wild symbol which will substitute for all other symbols. The other, however, is far more exciting. The Black Hole feature is triggered when the bonus scatter symbol appears on reel five and, once active, one symbol will also be chosen at random.
All instances of this symbol and any wilds are then collected and sent down the spiraling vortex on the right hand side of the screen. Players are then treated to a re-spin, and this will continue as long as no more chosen symbols, or wilds, appear on the reels (or if 15 or more symbols are collected).
When the feature ends, all collected symbols are thrown back onto the reels in an arrangement which gives you at least one guaranteed winning combination. The Black Hole feature triggers reasonably regularly, and it’s at it’s best when a high value symbol is chosen. In these instances, players have the chance at filling the screen with tons of the same symbol and creating some huge payouts.
Where Can I Play Cosmic Eclipse?
As we mentioned in the introduction, Cosmic Eclipse has been exclusively released to Betsson casinos. This means that UK players can enjoy the game at their flagship site, Betsson, or at some of their other sites including BetSafe and Casino Euro.
We’d recommend giving this slot a spin at Betsson Casino itself, however, as they’re currently offering all new players a fantastic 100% welcome bonus, worth up to £100. Moreover, with almost 17 years experience, they also boast a flawlessly designed site which works across all devices, a huge array of slots from not only NetEnt but many other world-class software developers, live dealer rooms and an accomplished sportsbook section too. In addition, signing up at Betsson could mean you’re in for more NetEnt treats in 2018, as the two brands’ special relationship seems stronger than ever before.
