Emoji Planet from NetEnt coming to a casino near you in August
We have a surprise for all emoji lovers: the emoji is coming to slots!
NetEnt, the leading supplier of digital casino entertainment software, has announced the release of Emoji Planet Slot for August 23, 2017 following the summer launch of the anticipated feature film, The Emoji Movie.
NetEnt has teamed up with Global Merchandising Services and The Emoji Company to bring to life the universally popular icons we send millions a day to each other via our mobile devices. Emoji, as one of the best-known and most used brands in the world, has flourished across digital messaging and completely changed the way we communicate today. As NetEnt’s latest branded game, it will definitely add not only a new dimension of smiles and fun to its game portfolio but also a new and unique social gaming experience to the online casino world.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, commented: “As a leader in both mobile online gaming and innovation, Emojis is a perfect fit with NetEnt. Every day, millions – if not billions – of people around the world enjoy using Emojis. They have become a language in their own right; it is hard to think of a more collectively familiar and loved brand to partner up with.”
Emoji Planet Slot is a 5-reel 6-row, cluster pays slot which is playable from $0,2 to $200 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The game looks visually appealing, with 8 emojis as symbols on the reels: two hearts, bombs, pizza slices, kiss marks, rockets, poo, aliens and smiley faces. It is built upon the Avalanche feature where symbols fall into position instead of spinning and which also allows you to win again and again from each cascade. In order to get a winning combo, you need to form clusters of symbols of 5 or more symbols. The more symbols you get, the bigger you win. It also comes with 5 Emoji features which are triggered when you fill the corresponding meter. You can get cash prizes, 3×3 overlay symbols, 3 sticky wilds and 10 wild stacks. There are wins of up to 5,000 times your stake on each cascade.
Solidifying their status as a modern, innovative casino games designer and reaching the agreement with Global Merchandising Services and The Emoji Company, NetEnt will present this character-driven game to the world and the game’s innovative features will appeal to both young and old players.
Jens Drinkwater, Licensing Manager at Global Merchandising Services Ltd said: “We are tremendously excited to bring the colorful and exciting world from the emoji company to the gaming community. We are sure that the Emojiplanet game will be a fantastic success for players of all ages.”
