We have all been waiting to see what new and exciting games NetEnt was going to announce at ICE Totally Gaming 2017. After last year’s success with the NetEnt Rocks trilogy, we were wondering what could be better or at least match it. It seems that the digital casino entertainment company has worked out just how to keep a smile on their players’ faces with this year’s exciting upcoming release. NetEnt has announced an emoji slot game, which is sure to be popular with players for a very long time.
Emojiplanet Release in Q3 2017
With the high popularity of social media and mobile phones, emojis have become widely used around the world. Digital messaging has been enhanced and changed by the introduction of the emoji.
NetEnt’s new game, Emojiplanet, will bring emojis to popular online casinos and will add a new dimension to the social gaming experience found in online and mobile casinos. The new game is set for release in the third quarter of 2017 with an expected launch taking place after the summer. The timing has been set to come soon after the launch of The Emoji Movie that will hit the big screens in the summer of 2017.
In order to create the upcoming emoji-themed slot, NetEnt has partnered with Global Merchandising Services & The emoji Company. The new slot game uses a number of the popular emojis as symbols, and is likely to appeal to a wide demographic of players. As with all recent NetEnt slots, the game will be released on both the mobile and online platforms at the same time, allowing players to choose to play at home or any other convenient location.
Comments on the Upcoming Emoji Slot Game
NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon, commented on the new slot game: “As a leader in both mobile online gaming and innovation, Emojis is a perfect fit with NetEnt. Every day, millions – if not billions – of people around the world enjoy using Emojis. They have become a language in their own right; it is hard to think of a more collectively familiar and loved brand to partner up with.”
The Licensing Manager at Global Merchandising Services Ltd had the following to say: “We are tremendously excited to bring the colorful and exciting world from the emoji company to the gaming community. We are sure that the Emojiplanet® game will be a fantastic success for players of all ages.”
