Net Entertainment’s Emoji Planet has been designed to take on Microgaming’s Emoticoins as these two emoticon themed slot machines go ahead to head in 2017. The slot machine is quite different from its rival, though, in that it is one of NetEnt’s Cluster Pays slots. This means that there are no paylines on the reels of the game, but instead, players are required to land clusters of symbols on the reels to pocket prizes. Understandably, that makes wagering on the game rather easy, with minimum and maximum bets ranging from 20p per spin up to £200 per spin, respectively. If you can land a good combo of clustered symbols on the reels, you could walk away with a non-progressive prize worth 10,000 coins.
Emoji Planet contains an avalanche feature, or if you prefer, rolling reels or collapsible reels. This means that whenever symbols appear in winning clusters on the reels, they will subsequently disappear from the reels, and new ones will drop down in their stead. Players can not only pocket multiple wins in succession with this feature, they may also be able to fill up the Emoji Meters located beside the reels to land special icons bonuses.
Several special features have been included in this slot, and they are triggered when the relevant symbol meters are filled, as mentioned above. Bombs can destroy up to 8 symbols at random, whilst pizzas can offer 3×3 overlaying symbols on the reels. Kiss symbols can offer 3 sticky wilds on the reels for 3 re-spins, whilst rockets can add stacks of 10 wilds onto the reels, the only time you find wilds in this game. The hearts are also useful since they can provide instant cash wins, even though no other symbols appear in winning clusters on the reels.
We keep talking about Emoji Planet going head to head with Emoticoins but the truth could just be that these two slots are both excellent and different enough that they could both become fan favourites side by side at many online casino sites.
