New Netent Emoji Planet Video Slot Game
Netent have launched a radical new casino slot game today. This new Emoji Planet video slot game has an innovative design with some great features. Firstly it is unconventional to say the least and you will need to think differently to understand the game.
Forget about spinning reels this game uses a 6 by 5 grid of falling clusters like an avalanche. The symbols of course are Emoticons and the wins are awarded when various matches appear in adjacent panes.
The pay symbols are colourful and mostly unusual. Be prepared for bombs, slices of pizza, kissy lips, rockets and blue hearts which are the main symbols. The secondary symbols are an alien, a chocolate ghost and of course a smiley. The wild symbol is the star.
How to win
To win you need to match at least 5 symbols in a line, horizontally or vertically. There are five bonus features activated when you match 12 of the symbols shown in the right hand pane. Try to ignore the left hand pane, it will distract you with animations the worst of which are a pair of dancing ladies wearing red leotards. They also wear red horns, lost me there a bit!
Back to the game, after you win, the winning symbols fall away to be replaced new symbols which sometimes deliver a second win. The game features exploding bombs, a pizza feature and a kiss feature with sticky wilds. There is also a rocket feature where a stack of wild symbols produce winning combinations. Then there is the two hearts feature which multiplies the current win.
There are no win lines with this game, the wins are delivered by more than 5 adjacent symbols. Coin ranges are from 0.01 to 1 and the win rate is designed to be frequent. The most you can win is 500 times the bet.
The game does not really have a conventional slot machine feel because it delivers cluster wins rather than matching symbols on lines.
The graphics and animations are ok with good visual contrast due to the use of coloured symbols. We did not understand what the dancing ladies were about except that they are quite cute.
This is not a high stakes high win slot machine so you can play it for what is. It is a pleasant game with some nice features.
The win rate is 96.48% over the life of the machine but it can deliver random wins during the game. It is a matter of luck.
This slot game is something which might have been created by Netent to offer something different to the normal slot machine. Will it be successful? only time will tell.
The graphic presentation does seem a little simple and you certainly could not say it is stunning. It is a pleasant game to play none the less.
It does deliver frequent wins due to dynamics of the game but it does not deliver big wins like so many other slot games.
The game software is playable using a web browser from your PC, tablet or mobile device.
