Emojis are everywhere in the modern world, no longer just a modern form of language, there’s even a film on the way to prove that these little characters are taking over the planet.
As always, it hasn’t taken long for the online slot market to catch on to this rise in popularity, and as is often the case, it’s NetEnt who are leading the charge with the release of EmojiPlanet.
Design and theme
EmojiPlanet has a unique format, as it is presented on a 6 x 5 grid, and the aim is to form clusters of symbols to create wins, as opposed to the traditional payline system.
As you would expect, the reels are adorned with different emojis, including, but not limited to, the alien, the rocket, the lips, the pizza, and the bomb.
The wild symbol is a gold star here, and will substitute for all other symbols to create winning combinations.
NetEnt are known for their inventive and innovative features, and this is the case again here, five different emojis having their own features.
As you get clusters, meters corresponding to each symbol will fill up, when one fills, a feature will activate, and you can activate more than one at once!
These features include:
Bomb – Eight connected symbols are blown up, awarding up to 100x your bet
Hearts – Any wins are multiplied by the number of times the meter has been filled up on the spin, plus an extra one
Lips – Three sticky wilds are added to the reels and stick until three winning combinations are formed.
Pizza – A 3 x 3 grid of matching symbols appears and pays accordingly
Rocket – A ten high stack of wilds appears on the reels to aid with winning combinations
With cascading reels at play as well, there are many ways to win big from this entertaining NetEnt slot game.
