Endorphina Launching Two New Slots: Diamond Vapor And Slotomoji
Endorphina might not be a developer we hear a lot about, and given that their last big piece of publicity was its having to take a game out of circulation because it offended Maoris, the company could do with a turnaround of fortune.
That’s what it’s hoping for this week as it launches not just one, but two brand new games, each designed to really get their players hearts pumping. Both based on recent cultural phenomena – one on the current ‘vaping’ trend, and the other on emojis – Endorphina will certainly have their fingers crossed that no one can find anything in these new slots to get bent out of shape over.
Diamond Vapor Mobile Slot
Despite reports of their batteries exploding in people’s pockets and suggestions that the health benefits have been way over-blown, vaping (smoking electronic cigarettes) is a trend which seems like it’s here to stay. It might not seem like the most obvious theme for a slot to take, but when it comes to Endorphina, they’re not exactly known for sticking to the most obvious subject matter.
Vaping culture is brought to life in Diamond Vapor with the aid of bottles of coloured fluid (presumably vaping fluid) and three trendy looking characters (presumably the kind of cool cats who vape). The 5 reel, 10 payline game has a lot going on under the hood. For one thing, the Vape Bar symbol has the double function of being both Wild and Scatter, meaning it can create winning combinations, while at the same time triggering up to 10 free spins!
During free spin games, it’s also worth knowing that symbols can expand to take up entire rows, giving a much bigger winning potential. Having courted controversy with their Maori slot, you’ve got to wonder whether Endorphina is just asking for more trouble by promoting what is, in essence, smoking. Is this slot simply the modern equivalent of ‘More doctors smoke Camels ‘?
Slotomoji Slot Mobile Slot
It’s happened: post-modernism has eaten its own tail and vomited it out all over the new carpet. With the release of the Emoji Movie this year, it was only going to be a matter of time before the emoji themed games started coming out of the woodwork.
Slotomoji won’t be the very first slot based around the pictorial internet language, it’s certainly bringing the faces to life in novel new ways; for instance, the emoji symbols which are part of a winning combination become animated, and act out whatever they’re meant to convey (our favourite is the sickly face trying not to vomit…).
It’s not just the graphics which make this 5 reel, 10 payline slot compelling, it has the mechanics to back up the looks too. Take for instance the wild symbols; wanting to get as many different emojis in the game as possible, there are in total three different wilds – a ballerina, a disco-dancer and a samurai warrior. These not only substitute for any other symbol, but also trigger re-spins, in which the wilds stay fixed, and which feature multipliers which increase until there are no more wins to be had.
