Emoticoins Video Slot Game by Microgaming
This new Emoticoins video slot game is an attractive addition from Microgaming. The theme is based on Emoticons, the symbols used for social networking, better known as smileys. As you might know from your phone there are many variations of them and they can be used to express emotion.
This new game was born out of an idea from two Microgaming employees who put the suggestion in the hat. From that embryo idea this new tantalising product was born. It seems the masters of gaming have done it again, to coin a phrase.
This new slot is bound to be popular not only because it is well designed visually but because it has a potentially high win rate.
It is a five reel three row slot game with 30 pay-lines. The wild symbols are the Emoticoin logo and scatter win symbols are the LOL tiles. The scatter win awards ten free spins. All the symbols are colourful as you might expect and the wild and scatter symbols are well animated. The wins are read left to right. Please note that the free spins cannot be re-triggered during the bonus round.
In the free spin rounds the wild symbols are sticky so the win potential is very high. The bonus feature is called the wild blast which is randomly triggered and adds five extra wilds symbols to the reels for the next spin.
The coin rate can be adjusted from 0.30 to 300 which is quite a range. The top progressive jackpot pays 7,500 coins. The win rate can be very high.
The return to player is 96.5% which is average over time. The win rate is variable during game play.
This slot game is easy to understand from the start and is therefore easy to play. The sticky wild feature makes the game very exciting during the free spins round and big money can be won if you have luck on your side.
The theme is innovative and well put together using the emoji theme from which endless choices could have been made. The chosen emojis are colourful and very cute. It is definitely a well put together production. The soundtrack is not too distracting but you can turn it off from the dashboard if you do not want to hear it.
The game has a certain appeal which as always, is waiting for that big win but it should land if you are patient.
This video slot game will appeal to those players who enjoy the world of emoji communications. Otherwise it is likely to appeal to a wide range of players because it is just fun. The production has been well put together and the win structure can easily be interpreted.
The game itself is not too challenging and we would describe it as an easy ride. The graphics are not difficult to interpret which does not drain a players energy level over time.
The only negative factor we could see was that the frees spins do not re-trigger. Having said that it is offset by the sticky wilds during the free spins round. That element of the game adds to the excitement level.
