Appearance and Sound Effects

Microgaming is world renowned for creating top slot games, and Emoticoins is another that is sure to become a classic. Taking a tongue in cheek attitude to the world of emojis, this slot game is fun, vibrant and colourful.  The game is set against a background of light blue, with the five-reels dominating the screen.  As you spin, some cheesy sound effects add further colour to the offering. 

On the reels of Emoticoins, there are five emoji symbols.  These are the most lucrative of the symbols and include a smiley face, an emoji with sunglasses, an emoji with a heart, a winking face emoji and an emoji sticking its tongue out.  The least lucrative of the symbols is the playing card symbols of 10, j, Q, K and A.  On the reels there is also a wild symbol and a "LOL" scatter bonus symbol.

Special Features

Emoticoins is packed full of bonuses.  The first special symbol in the game is the wild symbol.  The wild on the game is simply a symbol with the word "wild" adorned it.  This is a traditional wild, and it is going to substitute for symbols when it lands in order to try complete winning combinations. The wild symbol cannot substitute for the "LOL" symbol. 

The first of the bonus features is a random feature.  The wild blast is a bonus which blasts wild symbols on to the reels. The maximum number of symbols which will be blasted on will be five.

The main bonus feature is the free spins game.  This feature has two elements to it.  Before you are awarded the free spins, the feature must be triggered.  This is done by landing three or more of the "LOL" scatter symbols on a single spin.  Once triggered players are awarded ten free spins.

The second part of the free spins is the sticky wilds bonus.  While playing the free spins, this bonus becomes active. This will then apply sticky wilds to the reels. To start with it will apply a sticky wild position to the reels on the first spin.  It will then add further sticky wilds on the third, fifth, seventh and ninth spins, leaving five sticky wilds in place for spin ten. 

Playing on Mobile Devices

Emoticoins is a game which can be played on a desktop or mobile devices.

Our Verdict:

Emoticoins is a fun, vibrant slot game based on Emojis.  While playing the slot players will enjoy the tongue in cheek nature of the game, but more importantly, will appreciate the three bonus features where big prizes are up for grabs.
