Recent studies show that younger generations use a lot of emojis in digital communication. In some cases, they use emojis a lot more than they use words. It has been said that a picture is more worth than thousand words, and an emoji is basically a picture. Online casino software developers have always stayed in touch with the latest trends and made sure that their slots are modern and playable.
The emoji team is relatively new when it comes to slot games, but it is spreading like wildfire and it’s particularly popular with the younger audiences (people in their late teens and early twenties). NetEnt has a reputation of being one of the most innovative slot developers and it based on the success of their recent games, one can predict that Emoji Planet is bound to become an iconic game with large following.
The graphic design and features are quite impressive, but that actually can be expected from a NetEnt game. Instead of standard reels, the symbols fall onto a smartphone screen, and on each side you can see interesting animated characters. The music fits the theme perfectly. The sounds will remind you of video game music. It also has an element of cheekiness which makes it even more unique.
The outline is non-standard, the grid is 6 by 5 and there are no paylines in the traditional sense of the word. You win whenever a cluster of at least 5 symbols is formed. The more symbols in a cluster, the greater the win.
As there is no standard set of reels, and no standard pay-lines the wager is not calculated into coins per payline. You always play this game with 20 coins and the minimum amount that you can wager per coin is one penny, which sets the minimum stake at 20p. The maximum that you can wager is £10 per coin, or a total of £200. The largest in game win is 10,000 coins.
You can adjust the coin level and the coin value. Technically, the coin level matches the number of coins per payline in games which feature a standard set of paylines. Use these buttons to set the amount that you wish to wager and always remember to take care of your bankroll and manage it accordingly. If you have enough cash and you wish to aim big, use the ‘Max Bet’ button to wager £200 per spin. With the ‘Autoplay’ button you can automate the game and set the slot to spin continuously for a number of games, without having to press a button each time.
All symbols featured in this game are emojis, there are no boring card symbols or other symbols that are in no way connected with the theme. There’re two blue hearts symbol, a bomb, a piece of pizza, a kiss, a rocket, the famous poo emoji, an alien and the tears of joy emoji. There’s also a yellow star which serves as a wild symbol and can substitute each of the emoji symbols.
Clusters can be formed from 5 and up to 30 symbols. Five hearts and five bombs pay only 5 coins, but if you manage to get five tears of joy emojis you will receive 40 coins. The prizes per cluster increase with the number of symbols. For example for 10 double heart you will get 40 coins, whereas for 10 tears of joy emojis you will win 200 coins. With 15 tears of joy symbols the prize is more than doubled – 500 coins.
The maximum number of symbols that you could get in a cluster is 30, which is basically every symbol on the grid. Even though this is not very likely to happen, the prizes are massive and one can but hope to win them. 30 double heart symbols will give you 1,800 coins, whereas 30 tears of joy symbols will result in a 10,000 coin payment.
Emoji Planet is a medium variance game, which means that you can respect fairly regular payouts at regular intervals, not too many and not too few. The game RTP is 96.40%, which is not the highest RTP offered by NetEnt, but then again it’s not the lowest either.
This game has the Avalanche feature, which has already been used in a number of NetEnt games. Whenever there’s a winning combination, the symbols that formed the combination are removed and new symbols fall onto the screen. If a new winning combination is formed, this is repeated. There’s no limit on the number of winning combinations that can be formed.
With each win that is formed by either pizza, bomb, kiss, rocket or two blue hearts, one of the five emoji meters is filled. And when the respective emoji matter is filled one of the five bonus features is activated.
With the pizza symbol you get a special overlay symbol which has a 3x3 outline. It appears randomly and it can help you form a massive cluster. When the kiss meter is filled, you will get 3 sticky wilds that will be added randomly. Each wild has three lives and one of them is lost whenever the symbol participates in a winning combo. The two hearts feature is triggered only after the last winning combo and where there aren’t any more filled meters. The win depends on how many times the meter has been filled.
The bomb bonus will destroy 8 randomly chosen symbols and award you a cash prize in the amount between 5 and 100 times your total wager. The rocket feature brings about 10 wilds on top of and above one of the reels. After each win new wilds land on the reels unless the 10 awarded wilds are used.
Emoji Planet is a very dynamic and cheerful game. The game engineers and developers at NetEnt worked very hard and everyone at the company is pleased with the game. It appears that players are also quite satisfied and keep coming back to this amusing game. This game will surely put a smile on your face.
