Appearance and Sound Effects

Emotcoins is a really well-designed slot game with some funky effects. From the design what jumps out is the tongue nature of the slot, not taking itself too seriously.  The game is set against a plain light blue background and the reels dominate the screen. There is not a lot in the way of sound effects, and what they have is quite cheesy.  On the reels, there is a selection of high value and lower value symbols. 

The lower value symbols on Emoticoins is the playing card symbols in various colours.  There is 10, J, Q, K and A.  The higher paying symbols are five emoji's including a smiley face, a winky face, an emoji with sunglasses, smiley with heart and smiley sticking its tongue out.   There is also a wild symbol and a "LOL" scatter symbol.

Bonuses and Special Features

On Emoticoins there is three bonuses and a special symbol.  The first is the special symbol, which is the wild symbol, which simply has "wild" on it.  The wild symbol is going to help create combinations by substituting for most symbols on the reels.  The wild cannot substitute for the "LOL" scatter.

The first of the bonus features is a random bonus called the wild blast.  This feature at random intervals will blast five additional wilds to the reels, which can potentially create lots of new winning combinations.

The main bonus feature is the free spins game.  To trigger this feature, players must land three, four or five of the "LOL" scatter simultaneously.  Ten spins will then be awarded and will begin automatically. 

During the free spins, there is another bonus feature called the Wild Stickers bonus.   As you play the free spins positions become sticky wilds randomly.  It firstly does it on the spin one, however, it repeats it on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th spins.  These means when you get to the 10th spin there is five sticky wilds in place, all able to substitute for symbols, potentially creating huge payouts.


Five-reels and thirty paylines.
