The Emoji Movie has made it clear that the emoji craze has reached a whole new level. If you're a fan of those fun little digital icons and images that convey the tone of your messages and represent your feelings in your electronic communications, you'll likely love NetEnt's newly released slot: Emoji Planet!
You'll probably recognize the emoji icons that have been used for some of the symbols in this slot: kiss marks, smileys, pizza slices, aliens, hearts, rockets, bombs, and even the popular poo emoji. In addition to being cute and familiar, these symbols can land you some pretty big wins.
What truly makes Emoji Planet interesting is the fact that this 5 reel slot doesn't have spinning reels. Like NetEnt's popular Gonzo's Quest, Emoji Planet has 6 rows and cluster pays. The symbols fall into place in an avalanche-style. When a group of 5 or more symbols cluster as a result of a play, they create a winning combination. They then proceed to explode and new symbols fall taking their place. If another cluster of 5 or more of the same symbols results again, another win will occur and the same cycle will happen. This means that from only a single play, there is the possibility of scoring multiple wins.
In addition to these great winning chances, you can also benefit from the slots bonus features. There are 5 in total and each one is linked to an emoji symbol. For instance, in the Bomb Meter feature, 8 random symbols are eliminated and a random cash prize between 5x and 100x your stake is awarded for each symbol eliminated. To trigger any of the bonus features, you need to fill up the corresponding emoji symbol's meter by 12 spaces.
