Emoji Planet Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
First there were smileys. And then tech experts came up with more and more icons that came to be known as emoticons. As these emoticons received one upgrade after another, the term by which they are known got upgraded as well. From emoticons, they became emojis. And we see these emojis practically everywhere these days, especially on social media.
It wasn’t long after emojis became all the rage that a movie was made about them, and to coincide with the movie’s release, game developer NetEnt also released an emoji-themed online slot game, Emoji Planet. And just as emojis make our social media posts and messages more fun and meaningful, this slot is all about fun and entertainment.
It features 6 reels, 5 rows, and 20 paylines, along with game symbols that are sure to be familiar to most of us. The backdrop and the symbols alike are colorful, and they give the slot a generally youthful look. You’re also sure to appreciate the various features and bonuses that give you several ways to end up with a huge payout. There is so much going on in the game, but gameplay is simple enough for all types of players to enjoy.
You won’t see the usual card symbols in this game. After all, the game doesn’t really need those symbols; there are more than enough emojis to choose from. Base game symbols include 8 types of emoji. There’s a pair of blue hearts, a rocket, a kiss mark, a slice of pizza, an alien, the poo emoji, a bomb, and a smiley. Among these symbols, the one with the highest value is the smiley, which can help you win 500x your wager.
There is also a star emoji with the word “wild” printed across it. This is the game’s Wild symbol, which substitutes for all the other symbols to help you land winning combinations. It can appear on any of the reels at any time.
The main bonus feature of the game is the Emoji Meter feature. To the right of the reel, you will see 5 of the base game symbols--the kiss mark, the bomb, the rocket, the pizza, and the hearts. Whenever you land a cluster of the corresponding symbol, the meter is activated. If you land a cluster of 12 symbols, the corresponding emoji meter bonus is triggered. You will receive the following rewards when you trigger the respective emoji meters:
Kiss Mark Meter - You get three sticky wilds that remain in place until they’ve each been in a winning combination thrice.
Bomb Meter - Eight connected symbols are blown up, and you get 100x your wager.
Rocket Meter - You get a stack of 10 Wilds that extend over the top of the reel, helping you land more winning combinations.
Pizza Meter - You automatically get a 3x3 grid with matching game symbols, and you are awarded the corresponding prize.
Hearts Meter - Any winning combination you land is multiplied by how many times you fill the meter, plus one.
