25+ centuries ago, philosophers devised logical theories about the surroundings of our planet. One by one they went, starting with Democritus, who taught about atoms, and Aristarchus, who suggested that all planets rotated around the sun. But it would be two thousand years before we had the tool to confirm all their claims.
In 1609, Galileo Galilei demonstrated an instrument that would soon be called a telescope. Aiming it at the night sky, we could now observe and explore our galaxy, the moon, and the neighboring planets. You could call it an outward voyage, which developer Thunderkick has attempted to illustrate in their newest slot, Cosmic Voyager.

Slot Details: Skin, Math Model Stats, Paytable, & Basic Rules
Upon loading, Cosmic Voyager presents a splash screen detailing the selling points of the game at hand. Proceed by clicking anywhere on the screen, and you are greeted by an instantly familiar scene. That is if you have played a celestially themed slot before. The mysterious being in the background and playing area is a unique touch, though, giving you something to look at other than the clusters of neon-lit stars.
Players get cast out in the reaches of space upon selecting their ideal bet and setting the reels in motion with the spin or auto-play button. That can be on any device unless you prefer using old school flip phones like Saul Goodman. Recommended screen dimensions for the best view are 1280×720 or 1024×576 but alterable nonetheless, provided that aspect ratio remains at 16:9.
Hopping on the spaceship, players should not expect the smoothest of rides, given that 11.46 is the square root of variance or the volatility setting. Triggering the bonus round sure takes a while, but a high theoretical payout rating of 96.14% ensures that you never run out of liquid hydrogen to keep going.
The aim is to line up identical symbols starting from the leftmost reel. While at least two are required for the mid-payers (star, blue pyramid, green cube, & orange icosahedron) and the premium (golden mask), at least three are required for the low payers (orange, pink, green, blue, & purple planets). The premium is worth 250x for a five-of-a-kind combination, meaning that the 5000x potential claim remains on paper. Cosmic Voyager can only do 2500x at best since it does not utilize a both-ways-pay system. Modifiers with booster multipliers are not featured anywhere either.
The Cosmic Voyager Symbol
The named symbol is special, doubling as the game’s scatter symbol and substituting wild. As a scatter, it pays 2, 20, and 200 times the bet for three, four, and five appearances besides unlocking the bonus round.
Stacking three identical regular symbols on the first reel triggers the named feature. Here, any symbol identical to those stacked on the first reel becomes an expanding symbol. The best-case scenario would be to have a golden mask occupy all five reels for an impressive 2500x payout.
Land at least three scatter symbols to trigger ten free spins, where endless retriggers are possible. The expanding symbols feature continues as in the base game.
Cosmic Voyager- Our verdict
If there is one thing we can agree on, it is the lack of originality by Thunderkick here. Look at the overall styling, and the likes of Starburst come to mind. Trigger the features, and you get those ‘book of’ slot vibes.
On the positive, Cosmic Voyager is a respectable slot worth checking out because of its playability. That is not to mention its generosity, all thanks to a primary feature that activates often to award decent wins.
