Onto the second NetEnt Q3 slot release, and it’s one we think you online casino gamers will be very excited about – the emoji is coming to slots! That’s right, solidifying their status as a modern, innovative casino games designer, NetEnt have managed to sign a deal to release emojiplanet™ to the world – and we don’t really need to give you two guesses for this slot’s theme, do we?
Whether or not the game will have a direct reference to the upcoming The Emoji Movie remains to be seen, but we’re fascinated to see what kind of Wild symbols and bonus features NetEnt have in store for this character-driven game.
The agreement has been reached with Global Merchandising Services and The Emoji Company for the rights to make the game, so it will be as authentic as they come.
Details are fairly sparse as to exactly what the reels will look like and what features will be implemented, but we expect it to be a particularly visual and colourful affair (as seen in the teaser trailer above).
We also know that you’ll be able to play NetEnt’s emojiplanet™ slot for free on release day at Netent Casino – with a whole article dedicated to those emojiplanet™ free spins packages that many operators are sure to offer.
When the emoji casino game was first announced in February, both the CPO of the company and Global Merchandising Services’ Licensing Manager commented on the fruitful partnership.
We’ll start with the latter, Jens Drinkwater:
We are tremendously excited to bring the colourful and exciting world from the emoji company to the gaming community.
We are sure that the emojiplanet™ game will be a fantastic success for players of all ages.
NetEnt’s Simon Hammon then followed, touching upon the fact that the emoji slot would naturally be available for mobile casino players, seeing as though these devices played a huge part in the concept’s creation.
Here’s what Simon had to say:
As a leader in both mobile online gaming and innovation, emojis is a perfect fit with NetEnt. Every day, millions – if not billions – of people around the world enjoy using emojis.
They have become a language in their own right; it is hard to think of a more collectively familiar and loved brand to partner up with.
Alongside emojiplanet™, NetEnt are (potentially) returning to the much loved Universal Monsters™ series for their first Q3 release.
The end of the summer shouldn’t be met with complete dismay by gamers either, as a double-helping of slots is scheduled for September.
