It was an exciting week for NetEnt fans as the group rolled out its new video slot game, Emoji Planet. After a hiatus of nearly a month that NetEnt hadn’t released any new games, it was welcome news for players that a new game had hit NetEnt powered online casinos. The fact that it was the long-awaited Emoji Planet slot was an extra bonus. Emoji Planet slot is a mobile-first game that was developed in partnership with the emoji company GmbH & Global Merchandising Services Ltd. Earlier this year, NetEnt announced that it would be creating a game based on these social media images that have taken the world by storm and have changed the way that people communicate with one another. The game was also released to coincide with the new movie, The Emoji Movie that hit the big screens in July. According to the chief product officer at NetEnt, Simon Hammon: “The Emoji has become a worldwide phenomenon, so we’re pleased to be able to give players the chance to enter their world. The Emoji Planet was made to bring fun and laughter to the gaming experience and we’re confident our players will love this unique encounter and everything it offers.” Emoji Planet Review Emoji Planet Slot in a Nutshell Emoji Planet slot is a five reel game that uses Clusters to replace pay lines (more about that below). The 6 row game can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices and – clearly – is based on emojis. While there are a multitude of emoji symbols that people use to communicate their feelings every day, NetEnt has chosen to focus on a handful of the truly well-known ones such as Two Hearts, Kiss Marks, Smiley Faces and more. The Avalanche Feature Players who are familiar with NetEnt’s award-winning Gonzo’s Quest slot will recognize the Avalanche Feature that is also used in Emoji Planet slot. Symbols fall into positions instead of spinning, and if they form clusters of symbols of five or more, a winning combo is formed. More clusters equal bigger wins. The Avalanche kicks in when players get a cluster win. The cluster symbols explode and, in their place, new symbols appear. Thus, each spin has the potential to release new Avalanches and bigger wins. Betting on Emoji Planet Slot NetEnt wants everyone to enjoy the new Emoji Planet slot and has therefore made it possible to wager anything from 0.20 to 200.00 per spin. Budget players and highrollers alike would be tweeting smiley faces galore over this betting range! Emoji Meters When a symbol is destroyed, its corresponding emoji fills its Emoji Meter. There are five Emoji Meters in total. As soon as you fill up 12 of the same emojis in one meter, its bonus feature is triggered. The five bonus games reward well through random cash prizes, sticky wilds, stacked wilds and more. Our Opinion This is a fun and highly entertaining game with symbols that we are all familiar with. With the chance to win up to 5,000 x your stake and lots of Emoji Meter feature games, there is never a dull moment with the new Emoji Planet slot.
