From the name and what we’ve said so far it is obvious that emoticons will play a central part in this slot. The lower value symbols are the generic 9 – A that have been given a little makeover to suit the theme, the background is a wallpaper type effect of blue speech bubbles that make the reels stand out creating an interesting pattern. The high value symbols of course are where emoticons start to come into play, appearances are made by such classics as sunglasses, smiling, whistling and winking emojis.
The game gives off carefree vibes, thanks to the happy sound effects and emoticons performing their actions through little animations as combos of them are formed.
A big part of what made emoticons so popular is how easy and simple they are to use, the Emoticoins game follows that with a simple 5-reel, 3 row format with a possible 30 paylines to play with. There is more to this slot however that adds extra than symbol matchmaking, for example the Wild blast which can add up to 5 wilds to the reel at any point after a spin.
However, the simplicity should not make you think that this game offers low winnings only, the highest bet can reach the incredible height of £/€/$1500 on a single spin. Put this together with the fairly generous RTP (Return to player) of 96% and you can see that being fun and easy sometimes pays out. Along with these features there are also great bonuses available in Emoticoins.
You can make the most of the free spins feature by landing only 3+ LOL Scatters, you will be granted 10 free spins along with a cash prize. During these free spins you will see that any Wilds landed will be sticky and remain in the place they are in until you have run out of spins, this increases your chance of matching them. With luck by the end of the round you will find the screen full with plenty of wilds, this can trigger a shower of coins animation letting you win even more.
