On 23rd August, NetEnt drops its emoticon-themed slot EmojiPlanet. It was just a matter of time until we saw the world of online slots collide with that of emojis. And now NetEnt is making it happen. Now, if you’re already buzzing with anticipation to get a fix of this one, here’s some news to bring a smiley to your face: we’ve got hold of the 1st footage!
EmojiPlanet shoots you off into a pop art world full of colourful and quirky things like dancing she-devil twins, unicorns with eyes that light up into hearts and more, and the weather is always bright with sunshine and rainbows with a dash of clouds. At the same time, it all feels so familiar. The screen and animations make it look like you simply have a chat session going on on your mobile phone. And all you can use to communicate are emojis.
You’ll see all the emoticons you probably use on a daily basis already. You’ve got a kiss mark, a rocket, an exploding bomb, a pizza slice, 2 hearts, a rocket, an alien face, a LOL face. Hey! There’s a smiling turd too! Symbols fall from the top onto a 6-reels by 5-rows screen and as winning combinations are formed, they pop, making way for more symbols to fall. The game is an Avalanche™ type slot that uses NetEnt’s Cluster Pays™ technology. So, you can be sure to see quite a few wins.
If a picture can say 100 words, Emojis in EmojiPlanet can win you 1,000,000 coins! Yes, that’s the maximum pay-out you can scoop up in one go. There’s no information about adjustable bet levels or coin values so far though. However, we’ve got half an idea about the special features.
Besides the regular wild symbol represented by a Star Wild, there are 5 other symbols that can trigger special features. There’s also a Broken Heart Symbol that functions as a sticky wild. All of these take place in the base game. Each special feature symbols (besides both wilds) has its own meter on the left-hand side of the screen. Collecting enough of the same symbol will fill up the meter and launch the special feature. Here’s the list:
EmojiPlanet’s first footage has certainly whetted our appetite for some emoji action. It simply looks like NetEnt have worked out yet another formula combining attractive visuals and fun game mechanics to ramp up the fun. We simply can’t wait. And as the launching date draws nearer, we’ll also be on the lookout for free spins offers by NetEnt Casinos. So, stay tuned for more!
