Alien spaceships and little green men are the stars of Cosmic Invaders, a 5 reel, 30 payline slot powered by 2 By 2 Gaming. This sci-fi adventure comes with stacked wilds, a pick me feature and a free spins bonus round. Try and save the earth from between 30p and £75 per spin.

You wouldn’t call Cosmic Invaders a really sophisticated slot as far as visuals are concerned – the cartoon style graphics have a definite charm though with the spooky 1950s style soundtrack certainly enhancing the alien theme.

Symbols on the reels include futuristic looking playing card symbols alongside the moon, earth, satellites, scanners and the Cosmic Invaders logo. The alien wild is the game’s top payer. Just 2 of these in a line will get you a payout. Land 5 in a row and that payout will be 1,500 times your line bet.

There are 3 main bonus offerings to consider in Cosmic Invaders. First up is the Wild Invaders feature – you’ll notice that there are 3 flying saucers hovering over the middle 3 reels. On any given spin, these spaceships can drop stacked wilds to fill reels 2, 3 or 4.

Land the UFO road sign symbol on reels 1 and 5 to trigger the Alien Picking Bonus feature – you’ll be taken to a new screen and given a choice of 5 aliens. Pick to win cash prizes. If you’re lucky, you can win an extra pick here too.

Finally, there’s the Cosmic Free Spins feature which are triggered by landing the female alien scatter symbol – 3 will get you 6 free spins, 4 offers 7 with 8 free spins awarded if you land 5 scatters. On each free spin, 1 of the middle 3 reels will become a stacked wild.

The randomly triggered Wild Invaders feature is in play here – if you manage to combine the 2 features, some big wins are possible. You can also trigger the Alien Picking Bonus feature from this feature but you can’t win any extra free spins.

Cosmic Invaders is a pretty simple slot, both in the way it looks and in its gameplay. There’s a steady stream of action on offer and plenty of variety too. Despite the theme, Cosmic Invaders isn’t an earth transforming slot. For some simple sci-fi adventure, you won’t go wrong though. However, there are better alternatives out there with WMS’ Invaders from the Planet Moolah or NetEnt’s When Pigs Fly recommended.
