Swedish online casino games developer, NetEnt, has joined the emoji craze with its latest release, Emoji Planet. The new video slot game lets players enter the fun universe of the emoji much like the hit feature film.
Love them or hate them, emojis are everywhere! Every day people use them to communicate and in 2015, Oxford Dictionaries even named an emoji, Face with Tears of Joy, the Word of the year.
What if there was a place where you could indulge your love of video lots and emojis? Now you can do just that when you experience the fun universe of the emoji with NetEnt’s Emoji Planet.
Developed in partnership with emoji company, GmbH & Global Merchandising Services Ltd., Emoji Planet is a mobile-first game. The game’s release comes on the heels of the July 23 launch of the Sony Pictures Animation-produced feature film based on emojis.
The five-reel, six-row video slot uses the Cluster Pays mechanics to send players into the middle of an Avalanche accompanied by playful music which sets the scene for the sweet chaos that follows as our beloved emojis come cascading down.
The new game has lots of exciting Emoji Features, including Pizza, the Bomb, Rocket, Kiss Mark and Two Hearts. All of them are up for grabs as they ascend from the sky wreaking chaos as they fall. Face with Tears of Joy, which is also Twitter’s most popular emoji, is also featured in the game.
NetEnt Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon, said, “The emoji has become a worldwide phenomenon, so we’re pleased to be able to give players the chance to enter their world.” “Emoji Planet was made to bring fun and laughter to the gaming experience, and we’re confident our players will love this unique encounter and everything it offers,” said Hammon.
Emoji Planet was unveiled in February at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming in London and excitement regarding its release has been growing since.
