NetEnt, the leading supplier of digital casino entertainment, has announced two new pokies at ICE 2017, London, to be released later this year.
Emojiplanet: what are Netent thinking?
Emojiplanet will follow the release of the feature film The Emoji Movie and will bring the universally popular icons to life with a unique social gaming experience.
In the words of Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt: “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.”
Now we must be honest with you here. This sounds like a terrible idea for a slot machine. Pokie machines should be exciting and thrilling, and we find it hard to believe how a smiley, any smiley, could lead to interesting gameplay. But then again, Netent are true masters of their craft and continue to amaze players from all over the world with their dazzling pokies.
Emojiplanet is due for release in Q3 2017, following the summer launch of the anticipated feature film, The Emoji Movie .
Planet of the Apes: all the ingredients for a brilliant pokie
Thankfully, the second big pokie announcement has all the ingredients in it to make a perfect pokie. A great storyline, several epic movies and lots of possible bonus features. The second big slot announcement was for “The Planet of the Apes”.
NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes pokie is set to create a huge buzz among film fans and players when it is released in the second half of 2017. The pokie will feature stunning graphics and unique game mechanics that will bring to life the power and excitement of the brand.
The simian franchise originates from the French novel La Planète des Singes. In 1968 the first movie based on the book premiered, starring Charlton Heston. It acclaimed critical success and spawned the cherished series. The most recent releases – Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) – have also both been critical and commercial successes.
NetEnt has signed an exclusive agreement with 20th Century Fox to license the Planet of the Apes film franchise for online casino gaming.
We can’t wait!
