NetEnt’s Slot Machine Emoji Planet is based on the movie Emoji movie that was made and released by Sony earlier this summer. If you are now wondering why on earth Sony should start messing with making movies, then you are not the only one and we look forward to having that discussion sometime in the future.
Today, however, we can conclude that the Emoji movie became a giant flop. It is listed on Rotten Tomatoes with a rating of 8% (at the time of writing). NetEnt’s interpretation of these small expressions for emotions in drawing form is much better in our opinion. We have been emphatically confirmed that Emoji is something that fits better on small screens simply and not on the big screen.
NetEnt has used the theme elegantly and has given us something that could be considered one of this year’s best vending machines by this developer. The game layout is a bit like one of our game favorites from Play’n Go, namely Viking Runecraft. However, we do not feel that it pedals this machine on the toes, so to speak.
The vending machine sets the mood right away with its lighter humorous music. However, it can get a little tiring, so you end up turning off the sound. Things you will recognize: the Avalanche feature, which is nothing but falling symbols (avalanche means race, as in snow), Gonzo from Gonzos Quest who heads in from the left. So does the astronaut from When Pigs Fly. Why they do it? Because they have a desire to be included as emoji in our mobile phones, of course;) But we think the chances of it being rather small.

About Emoji Planet.
The Emoji Planet is a medium to high volatility slot machine. We play all over six reels and five rows. There is a lot going on on the screen, of elements that jump in and move, but that’s not all it’s worth keeping an eye on. You know the symbols from before, here they are all together; the kisses, the bombs, the lord piles and the pizza.
The symbols payout table can get a beginner to tears first, but relax, it goes quickly, it’s not as difficult as it seems. It is as it is because of the cluster function. In this slot machine Emoji Planet there are not 3 or 5 equal symbols that pay out, there are clusters that pay off.
Features of the emoji planet.
There are five different features and they are based on five different emojis. It’s the bomb, the pizza, the kiss, the rocket and the hearts. Each of these has its own meter that fills up as you get profitable bunches of that particular symbol. When a meter is full it will trigger that symbol’s function. Each meter has 12 places, although it is not easy to see, and when all twelve places are filled up, the function is then triggered.
Let’s take a look at the individual features:
- Bomb function : when activated, eight random symbols on the reels will explode and give a random coin gain. The winnings can be between 5 and 100 times the bet for each blast symbol. It is worth noting here that wilds cannot be blown up.
- Pizza function: This is a feature that provides a field with 3 times 3 equal and randomly selected symbols on your wheels. Once again, the wild symbol is exempt.
- The Kiss Feature : The red lipstick marks give you three randomly picked wilds that stay on your wheels. Each of these has three lives and is thus stuck by three spins (raises) to increase your chances of winning.
- Rocket Feature : When activated, one missile will fly over your reels and a stack of 10 wilds will appear. These will then fall down until everyone has fallen or until a profitable combination has been created.
- Cardiac function: This is the hardest to get and it is probably because it doubles your total gain by the number of times your meter has been filled, +1!
Our thoughts on the Emoji planet.
Emojis with Emoji Planet definitely do better as a game than as a movie. We believe this may be a new favorite of many players. Personally, we think that a spin or an avalanche may take a little longer than strictly necessary. Fortunately, you can increase the speed of Emoji Planet if you touch the settings icon in the bottom left. It helps a bit.
