Emoji Planet

About The Developer
Digital Entertainment is just what NetEnt do – after 20 years in the industry they are still pioneers in creating online content to satisfy the masses, and keep them coming back for more. Testament to this is the ridiculous number of transactions their titles handle every year – up there in the billions, across their hundreds of titles and 1000s of online casino operators.

About The Game
If anybody had suggested that a game built entirely on Emojis would be one of the most enjoyable, engaging experiences I’d had online, I might’ve checked their temperature and asked them to take a lie down. However, NetEnt have managed to cobble together a visually marvellous online slot game comprised almost entirely of those enigmatic little characters that pop up on the end of Texts, Tweets, and Messages all over the digital world.

This 5 reel, 6 row cluster-win online slot game captures all the fun of your regular online slots, plus the feel of a mobile-based arcade game. From £0.02 to £200.00 per coin, we can watch the symbols cascade and the wins pile up.

Emoji Planet begins with a quirky, classic NetEnt intro video, which feels a little bit like what the sleeping emoji might be dreaming about while he/she/it permanently snoozes on our phones – a cartoonish cornucopia of cool graphics, audio and sound effects. Once we’re into the game we can select our level, and decide on whether to trigger the Autoplay feature (which is always useful for cluster-win, cascade games).

We are looking for clusters of 5 or more on the reels, in the 30 spaces on the screen (and each of the 8 symbols subsequently carry multipliers up to 30x – so you can imagine the potential wins!). There are also five Emoji meters, linked to the Bomb, Pizza Slice, Lips, Rocket Ship and Double Heart symbols, which fill up with each cluster landed per spin. When these meters are filled, a unique bonus is triggered.

The Random Bomb Feature destroys 8 random symbols on the board and awards a random coin return of between 5x and 100x, the Pizza Feature replaces a 3x3 chunk of the board with a random symbol, the Lips Feature comes in the form of 3 Sticky Wild Kisses appearing on the screen, the Rocket Bonus is an instant stack of 10 Wilds, and the Two Hearts feature results in a unique multiplier.

Befitting the vast quantity of Emojis available with which to communicate, the number of wins in Emoji planet are copious!

The Verdict 
The arcade feel to Emoji Planet makes it instantly distinct to other online slot games, and this feel is carried through the title by the graphics and delightful audio. While the gameplay is relatively simple, it doesn’t ever need to be anything more. It is catchy, quirky and charming enough without making the gameplay overly complex. Dream Jackpot are taken by any game with this level of innovation, and award at a Smiley Face, Thumbs Up, Rocket Ship 9/10.
