About The Slot
Emoji Planet slot features an unconventional 6x5 reel layout. On top of that, it does come with any paylines. Instead, you get wins by forming clusters of the same symbols. The more the same symbols you get in a particular cluster, the higher your wins, but you will need five symbols to form one in the first place. Emoji Planet accepts wagers starting from 20p and this number caps out a massive £200 per spin. That said, this game will suit both casual players and slots enthusiasts just the same.
All the symbols in this game are designed after emojis (duhh), and you will come across everything from hearts, kisses, aliens, poo and bomb emojis. Keep an eye out for the smiley face as it is the highest paying symbol in this game. They can potentially pay you up to 500 times your spin wager when you fill your reels up with them.
From our experience playing Emoji Planet, we can say that this game is in between medium and high variance. While the size and payout frequency is decent, players may sometimes have to go through a drought before going on a win streak. Return to Player (RTP) rate in this game stands at a higher than average 96.4%, giving players higher chances of being able to maintain their bank balances in long gaming sessions.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
With all NetEnt mobile slots, you can expect nothing but the best in terms of graphics. Whilst there wasn’t much to design in this game, especially with all the symbols being emojis, NetEnt has channeled all their creative energy into the design of the reels and the animations in this game. For starters, the reels look amazing even on smaller screens with two times the amount of symbols on them. Speaking of which, the Emoji Planet slot is highly mobile optimized. The user interface and experience on mobile devices regardless of platforms are impeccable.
Don’t even get us started on the animations in this slot game. Right off the bat, you will be greeted by a short movie of a travelling angel emoji. You will follow it as it travels through time and meets tens of other emojis. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. In the background during gameplay, random emojis will come to live and help boost your spirits. One thing for sure: every animation in this game is work of art. All in all, every aspect of this game works as flawlessly as it can get and even after 40 minutes of hard testing the game, we encountered zero stutters. We are thoroughly impressed.

Game Features: Emoji Meters
As all the other NetEnt mobile slots, there are the Wilds. In Emoji Planet, the come in the form of the Star emoji and they replace all other symbols to form cluster wins. The first bonus feature in Emoji Planet is the Avalanche feature. After every win, the cluster responsible will disappear from your screen and symbols will ‘avalanche’ from above replacing them. With the new symbols now in place you get a free chance of winning a new cluster without spending a penny.
Now, to the main attractions of Emoji Planet – the Emoji Meters. To trigger this feature you will have to create a winning cluster of 12 symbols. The participating emojis in this feature includes the bomb, pizza, kiss, rocket and double hearts symbols.
The best part is, when you get 12 or more of these symbols, the Avalanche feature is triggered first, giving you maximum win potentials. The following are the specific details for each of the following five Emoji Meters:
- Bomb Feature – When the Bomb Feature is activated, eight random symbols on your reels will be destroyed and a random win between five and 100 times your spin wager will be awarded for each and every one of the destroyed symbols
- Pizza Feature – Once the Pizza Feature is activated, 3x3 overlay of any random symbol (except the Wilds) will appear on your reels
- Kiss Mark Feature – When the Kiss Mark feature is activated, three Sticky Wilds will randomly appear anywhere on your reels; each Sticky Wilds symbols have three lives and whenever a Sticky Wild is part of one or more simultaneous winning combinations, it loses a life (i.e. feature ends)
- Rocket Feature – Once activated, a stack of 10 Wild symbols appears on and above one of the reels creating a winning combination
- Two Hearts Feature – When activated, your total win is multiplied by the number of times the meter is filled up plus one
Emoji Planet — A Slot To Represent The Year 2017…
At this juncture, we are not sure if we can pin-point a single feature or element in this game that has resulted in it being amazing. Firstly, we can even think of any other theme in the world that is more appropriate than the emoji in 2017.
Payouts wise, Emoji Planet is no slouch either. The avalanche feature combined with the Wilds may prove to be extremely profitable when they appear together. That's not to mention the five different bonus features present in this game as well. Each and every one of them have been designed so prudently to ensure that they yield maximum levels of excitement for everyone playing this game.
Back to the point, we honestly think that the unique feature in this game is the harmony that exists within it. Every aspect works hand in hand with one another to create an experience that will put a smile(y) on your face whenever you play it.
