If you are looking for a new vibrant, colourful slot game, then Emoticoins is the one for you.  Created by Microgaming and Slingshot Studios, this game dives deep into the world of emojis.  Best known for their use on social media as a reaction or as a quick way to respond to a text, emojis have filled a need for fast communication.  However, now they are also here to stay on our slot screens too.

Our Verdict:

Emoticoins is a bright and colourful slot game.  Like most Microgaming slots there is real attention to detail in the design and animations.  The game is set against a lighter blue background, with the darker blue reels taking centre stage.  The symbols on the reels add further colour.  As you spin, there is also some tongue in cheek cheesy sound effects adding humour to the gameplay.  There is also quality gameplay for players in the way of the three bonus features, particularly the free spins where big potential wins can be won.

How to Play:

Emoticoins is a five-reel, three-row slot.  On the game, there is thirty paylines and players will look to land at least three symbols in a combination on one of these to win a prize.  The value of the prize will be determined by the type and number of symbols which land, as well as how much the stake is.  A minimum stake on Emoticoins is 30p, and a maximum is £30.  A top prize on offer is 7500 coins.

Wild Symbol:

The Emoticoins wild symbol is the most lucrative symbol on the game.  The wild is instantly recognisable as it has wild on it.  This symbol can also substitute for most other symbols in the game in order to complete combinations but can't substitute for the "LOL" scatter.  The symbols it can substitute for include the playing card symbols of 10 – A and the five emojis including the smiley, sunglasses emoji, kissing emoji, winking emoji and emoji with the tongue sticking out.

Wild Blast:

The first of the bonus features is the Wild Blast bonus.  The Wild Blast will trigger at random intervals during the game.  When triggered it will blast five wild symbols on to the reels.  These new wild symbols will perform like the other wilds that land and may help complete combinations by substituting for other symbols.

Free Spins Bonus Feature:

The main bonus feature on Emoticions is the Free Spins. To trigger this bonus game, players will need to land three, four or five of the "LOL" scatter symbol on a single spin. This will then award ten free spins.

Wild Stickers Feature:

The Wild Sticker feature is a bonus that works alongside the free spins and comes active soon as the Free Spins are triggered.  During the free spins, the wild sticker will allocate sticky wilds to the reels.  It does this on the odd number spins from one onwards, totally five sticky wilds by the end of the free spins.
