We all know NetEnt to be not only one of the developers with the highest standards in the industry, but also one of the most prolific – releasing a minimum of one game a month to keep their voracious fans happy. Well, it’s up to its normal tricks this week and has come to us with a treat – the release dates of not just one, but two upcoming games which we’ll be about to get out mitts on later in the year!
Wolf Cub and Emojiplanet are wildly different games, but seeing as they’re winging their way over to us from the studios at NetEnt, we can rest assured that they’re going to be great. We’ve got the low-down on both of these games, and are ready to share what we know so far with you!
Emojiplanet Mobile Slot – Releasing 23rd August
Ok, let’s cover the slot we can expect to see first from this veteran developer: Emojiplanet. Hitting all good NetEnt casinos towards the end of August, this is a fun loving and summery slot designed to capitalise on the craze for emojis currently taking popular culture by storm.
We know what you’re thinking: this whole emoji themed slot thing sounds familiar and you’d be right. There are already a couple of other emoji themed slot on the market and more in the pipeline, but that’s just what you get when no one technically owns the intellectual property for suck a big craze.
Other than the newly announced release date, there’s actually relatively little known about this new slot. NetEnt has put out a video trailing the game, but rather than the usual video teaser of gameplay, this is a whole live action advertisement that riffs on the name and theme without revealing any details about what we can actually expect from the game. Of course, when any more information is available, we’ll be sure to share it with you!
Wolf Cub Mobile Slot – Releasing 7th September
Now Wolf Cub is a funny one for a release, because it’s technically not new. The slot has been around a while, however, it’s been exclusive to Betsson casino, so while it has been out for some time, only a small minority of players have tried it. The 7th September is when the game goes mainstream, and becomes available for all online and mobile casino players.
Of course, this is good news for us, because it means we’re able to bring you far more details about this game than might otherwise be possible. Wold Cub is a wintery and a cartoony affair, set in a snowy forest that's populated by cute bears, owls, mountain lion, and of course, wolf cubs. The game has a high 96.34% RTP rate, plus features 5 reels and 20 paylines.
The basic bonus features are wilds and scatters, but these are augmented by the Blizzard feature, which will duplicate symbols during the extra spins round for bigger wins throughout. Unfortunately, we’re not at the point yet that NetEnt has put out an official video, but if you’re desperate to check out the gameplay, you’re more than welcome to take a look at the many fan made reviews online.
