You've seen them on Facebook and you've seen them on WhatsApp and recently there has also been a movie made about them - so why not a slot? Netent answers the challenge in the 5-reel, 5-row and cluster pays slot Emoji Planet. This creative interpretation even offers up a chance for up to 1,000,000 coins!
If you know anything about emojis then you know that there are literally thousands of them, with new ones coming out all the time! This one has chosen an interesting selection of emojis as regular symbols that are sure to be familiar and in some cases even elicit a smile. These symbols includes a face with tears of laughter, alien, poop, rocket, kiss mark, pepperoni pizza, round cartoon bomb and blue hearts. In the background you have additional emojis in a state of flux moving about to keep things fun! Rather fitting for this slot is an upbeat tune that plays in the background as the icons avalanche downwards along with other sound effects unlocked with winning paylines and features.
Cluster wins, Avalanche Feature and wilds
Perhaps a little different to other games, the slot employs the cluster wins method which means the game does away with conventional payline wins. Instead you win by collecting 5 or more symbols 'clustered together' regardless of their position on the grid. The Avalanche Feature is triggered by a cluster win. In this scenario the symbols involved explode only to be replaced by symbols that avalanche down to replace them and this can repeat for free provided you form a new cluster win. For good measure, the game also throws in the popular wild symbol that can popup on any reel and sub in for anything.
The differentiator for this delightful slot is the Emoji Feature that contains 5 Emoji Meters referred to as the Bomb Meter, Pizza Meter, Kiss Mark Meter, Rocket Meter and the Two Hearts Meter. These meters are populated by each symbol that explodes during a cluster win and by collecting 12 of a respective emoji you will unlock the corresponding feature. Briefly running through the features, the first that we'll look at is the Bomb Feature. Here 8 random symbols on the reels explode rewarding you with coin wins of between 5x and 100x your bet level. Next, the Pizza Feature creates a huge random 3x3 overlay symbol instantly creating a winning cluster! Alternatively, there is the Kiss Mark Feature which will add 3 sticky wild symbols to the reels where each have 3 lives that count down to 0 each time they are involved in winning clusters.
The next feature is a blast, called the Rocket Feature which stacks 10 wilds on and above a reel to create a winning combination. As the Avalanche Feature runs its course the new wild symbols land on the reels until no more remain. Last, there is the Two Hearts Feature which is triggered when there are no more winning cluster combinations or Emoji Features. Here, the total win is multiplied by the number of times that the meter is filled up plus one.
Emoji Planet slot has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 96.48% with stakes that range from as small as €0.20 to as grand as €100. The slot has a unique emoji theme with the drawing attraction being the Emoji Features that keep things fresh and exciting.
