EmotiCoins by Microgaming is a 5-reel slot that runs on a standard 5×3 boards. It’s got 30 fixed paylines and is themed on the Emojis that you use all the time texting to your friends on your chatting sessions on Whatsapp or Skype or in SMS on your cell phone or PC. So you need to focus on the emjoi here and note in the game you can’t be expected to subsist solely on matching identical emojis on a payline. That’s fun for a while but it’s not that stuff that hours of engrossed gaming are made of and features a top non-progressive jackpot of 7,500 coins.
Before you visit this land of Emoticoins, you should set your bets. By clicking on “Bet” you will set coins size which ranges from 0.01 to 10, and “Coins” will help you set the number of coins per line that you wish to bet.
The game brought to life by a crew of cheerful emoticons including favourites such as Tears of Joy, Kiss and Winking Face. The game with an upbeat soundtrack and vibrant graphics that include all your favourite emojis, offer great features, bonus and free spins.
Symbols and features
The emoji symbols look like, well, emojis, springing no surprises. You’ve got the usual suspects including sunglasses emoji and winking emoji. The remaining symbols are made up of playing cards. Instead of assigning the job of scatter to an emoji, Microgaming have handed it to a speech bubble that reads LOL and you’ll be laughing out loud if you land three or more of these on the board and successfully trigger free spins. When it comes to collect these, Wild Stickers come into play. This simply means that any wilds appearing onscreen will become sticky, remaining in place for the duration of free spins.
Wild Blast is one such feature, dropping as much as five extra wilds onto the board at random just to liven things up. The graphics are very simple, to the extent that wild for example is just that; the word WILD rendered in green in a cartoonish font. Any time you record a win in the base game, the emojis in question will swell in size and the sunglasses emoji, for example, will smirk and the winking emoji will of course wink.
- Five cheerful emoticons such as Tears of Joy, Kiss and Winking Face make up the high value symbols.
- The Emoticoins logo is the Wild symbol and substitutes all other symbols barring the Scatter icon to form a winning combination.
- The LOL symbol is the Scatter icon and triggers the Free Spins feature.
The Bonus Feature
Tanding 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere in sight triggers 10 free spins accompanied by the Wild Stickers feature. On the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th free spins one symbol’s position becomes a sticky wild, which means by your last 2 free spins 5 sticky wilds will be added to the reels. It is during this feature that players can win up to 300 times their original wager off a single free spin. This feature cannot be re-triggered. 5 extra wilds are awarded at random bonus anytime during the base game.
Three or more LOL scatter symbols anywhere on screen will trigger 10 free spins. Here, on every other spin, you’ll get one wild symbol randomly place on screen and stay there till the end of the bonus round.
The free spins come every 50 to 100 spins or so, so more often than you’d think for a medium variance slot. That’s because Microgaming have ensured you leave the EmotiCoins free spins bonus happy, by giving you a sticky wild every other spin. That means that in 10 free spins, you’ll always get 5 sticky wilds by the end of the round. It’s not always a guaranteed big win, but generally at least over 20x your bet.
EmotiCoins is sure to have players laughing out loud with wins of up to 92,000 coins and a minimum bet of 0.30. The winking face and kissing face offers two wild bonuses, the Wild Blast which awards five extra wilds and a guaranteed win, and Wild Stickers which are wild symbols that are held in place during free spins. The games scatter, the LOL symbol, has the power to trigger 10 free spins. Emoticoins with it’s two interesting features has an RTP of 97.00%.
