While the Emoji bombed in the box office, players need not worry about NetEnt’s Emoji Planet. This video slot is one of the developer’s newest and quite possibly, it’s most entertaining titles. While the video slot is obviously targeted for a millennial audience with its theme, its art style, graphics, and rewarding features ensures that players across all demographics will get to enjoy it. And since this is a title developed by NetEnt, players should be able to experience all that it has to offer on mobile devices and desktop/laptops that can support HTML5 content.
Emoji Planet is unique because it doesn’t follow the typical 5-reel, 3-row video slot format. Instead, it has 6-reels/columns and 5 rows with wins determined by the appearance of symbol clusters. A winning cluster would need to have at least 5 of the same symbols adjacent to each other on a vertical or horizontal orientation. Like with other NetEnt titles, players can configure bets to be as low as $.20 or as high as $200 by tweaking the Coin Level and Coin Value options on the video slot. In terms of features, the video slot has Wild Symbols that can serve as substitutes for all other symbols and help players complete clusters more easily. Additionally, there are 5 Emoji Meters that can trigger Emoji Features which can further improve players’ chances of winning. These Emoji Features include the Bomb Feature, Pizza Feature, Kiss Mark Feature, Rocket Feature, and Two Hearts Feature. When activated these features can give players up to 10 Wild Symbols (Rocket Feature), Win Multipliers (Two Hearts), Sticky Wilds (Kiss Mark), Symbol Overlays (Pizza Feature), and Random Wins (Bomb Feature). As for the video slot’s RTP, NetEnt currently has it rated at 96.48%.
Thanks to the ubiquity of messaging apps on smart devices, emojis have become one of the most popular forms of expression (and to a little extent, communication) today. Wanting to capitalize on this popularity, NetEnt developed Emoji Planet. The video slot makes use of emojis for its symbols as well as for its background. While it might look like its graphics are in 2D, it’s highly likely that the video slot uses 3D graphics rendered in a flat 2D style. As for audio, the video slot has an upbeat background music that should help make for a more immersive gameplay experience.
While Emoji Planet is a NetEnt-developed title, it’s relative newness has resulted in it being unavailable among online casinos that use the company’s casino software. Highly-rated online casinos such as Viks, Wunderino, Golden Star Casino, and even SlotsMillion still don’t have the video slot in their libraries. With that said, it should only be a matter of time for the video slot to find its way to these online casinos and their players. If they’re really raring to try out the video slot though, players can try out a demo of the title on NetEnt’s official page or at independent casino gaming portals like Vegas Slots Online.
