Emoji Planet Slots

In August, 2017, NetEnt introduced the video slot called EmojiPlanet, playable on desktop or mobile devices. It comes as no wonder that these cute little emojis served as an inspiration to the gaming developer, given the fact that a whole plethora of different smileys are so omnipresent in the virtual world we are surrounded by, be it on Facebook, Viber, Instagram, or any other popular social network. The vibrant title comes with a 6-reel, 5-row and Cluster Pays-based layout, offering 3x3 overlay icons, even three Sticky Wilds and as much as ten Wild stacks helping you grab the incredible 5,000x your line bet on every avalanche.

How to Play

In terms of visual aspects, NetEnt didn't quite live up to the high expectations we had, knowing that the famous gaming developer has already displayed so much resourcefulness and ingenuity in that field. Obviously, since the symbols themselves don't leave much room for creativity, the programmers concentrated their efforts on the design of the reels and much better animations. The soundtrack could have been less tedious, but you can easily turn it off if you wish so. Gameplay wise, the slot falls into the medium to high variance category. Overall, we can say that the winning combos are relatively frequent, however, due to rather high volatility, you can expect at least several dead spins before starting a winning streak.

Betting Options and Payout

The coin value ranges between $0.01 and $1.00, while the minimum stake you can wager is $0.20 and it can go up to the maximum of $200.00 per spin. That being said, the emoticon-inspired slot is well-suited to both low-rolling punters and the more aspiring ones thanks to the extensive betting range. Use the Bet Level button to adjust the bet value to your preferences. The Max Bet option is also at your disposal and will come in handy to high-rollers, automatically setting the wager to the maximum bet level at a preferred coin value. EmojiPlanet is a cluster pay game, excluding paylines altogether so the wins can come from all over the place. You are only required to link together not less than five symbols of a kind to create a winning combo. Obviously, the larger the cluster, the larger your payout. The smiley face is the highest paying icon on the reels, awarding even 500x your stake for grouping together 30 of them in any position on the reels.

Symbols and Extra Features

The symbols populating the reels include various emoji icons such as two different hearts, pizza slices, kiss marks, bombs, poo, rockets, and smiley faces, too. Besides the smiley faces which prove to be the most generous symbols on the reels, the game also features the Wild icon represented by the star and substituting for all other symbols. In terms of special features the slot machine introduces, there are five of them, the first one being the Bomb feature where 8 randomly chosen icons explode and award a cash prize ranging between 5x and 100x your bet for every symbol that is destroyed. During the Pizza feature, a 3x3 overlay of a randomly selected symbol pops up on the reels. During the Kiss Mark feature, three Sticky Wilds are added completely at random and they stay in that place for the duration of the feature. Keep in mind that every Sticky Wild possesses three lives and, when one of these contributes to the winning, one life is lost. That basically means that you get three wins for every Sticky Wild icon. When the Rocket feature is triggered, a cluster of ten Wilds lands on and above one of the reels, forming a winning. Last but not least, during the Two Hearts feature, the final win comes with a multiplier that is determined by the number of times that the meter is tanked up +1.

Our Verdict

If truth be told, we were not particularly impressed with what the NetEnt title had to offer here. The visuals are lagging behind the majority of other releases powered by the same gaming developer. Also, the highest prize that equals only 500x stake is yet another stark shortcoming, plus the fact that most of the features require much effort and patience to be activated in the first place. So, overall, if you have higher standards, you may want to choose a different game that brings in more entertainment and rewards as well.
