Since the dawn of smartphones, emojis or emoticons, depending on your preference, have become our favourite way to express our thoughts and feelings via SMS and social media. And, to honour all of the smiley faces and other comical symbols that are now an important part of the online community, world-famous slots developer, NetEnt, ha s created Emoji Planet.
The mobile version of the slot is brimming with fun features, all of which are based on popular emojis such as the Rocket Meter and the Bomb Meter. Plus, as NetEnt has included its Cluster Pays system, you can potentially form colossal wins with clusters of symbols rather than just across active paylines. And, if at first you don't succeed, there's no need to reach for the "poo" emoji, because Emoji Planet also comes equipped with an Avalanche Feature that lets you create back-to-back winning combos from a single spin.
More about the Software Provider
NetEnt is a legend among mobile slots players, as it's responsible for creating some of the most-played games of all time. As well as making hit mobile slots like Gonzo's Quest, Jack Hammer, and Starburst, the company has come up with pioneering special features like Avalanche (see Gonzo's Quest and Cosmic Fortune), Cluster Pays (see Aloha), Free Falls, and Appetite for Destruction Wilds (see Guns n' Roses), as well as level-based gameplay in mobile slot games like Steam Tower.
Appearance and Sound Effects
A funky electronic soundtrack starts playing as soon as you load Emoji Planet. The background consists of fluffy white clouds, balloons, and a beautiful rainbow, and the famous dancing emoji twins can-can their way from side-to-side. Look out for guest appearances from some of the most popular characters from other NetEnt slots such as Gonzo and the pig from When Pigs Fly who pop out from the right-hand side to wave at you every few seconds.
The reel set features thirty different symbols, which consist of a laughing face, an alien, the smiling poo, a rocket, two hearts, a bomb, a slice of pizza, a gold star, and a kiss mark.
Bonuses and Special Features
Emoji Planet uses five Emoji Meters: the Kiss Mark Meter, the Bomb Meter, the Pizza Meter, the Rocket Metre, and the Two Hearts Meter. Each time you form a win with one of these five symbols, the respective meter starts to fill up. When a meter is completely full, the bonus feature is awarded. Each bonus has individual characteristics. For example, the Rocket Feature adds ten wilds to the reels while the Bomb Feature destroys eight symbols at random.
The gold star is the wild symbol and it can appear anywhere on the reels to substitute for any of the other paytable symbols.
As Emoji Planet uses Cluster Pays rather than paylines, you can create wins using clusters. Clusters are formed with five or more matching symbols which are horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other.
Emoji Planet uses six reels, five rows of symbols, and five paylines, and the Cluster Pays system which lets you form wins with five or more identical symbols (N.B., a cluster) that are vertically or horizontally adjacent to each other. The slot also has an impressive RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.4%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
Emoji Planet is a unique new slot with fun graphics and animations, and a bucket-load of special features that can grant you stacked wilds, sticky wilds, symbol transformations, and more. If you want a smiley face, give it a play today!
