Play Emoji At Tombola Arcade

Article Updated On 26th January 2019

Did you know that six billion emojis are sent out every day? No, neither did we! Apparently Emoji, according to a report on Sky News, is the most successful planned language in history. Given the worldwide appeal of these mini icons it's perhaps no surprise to see them turning up in online games. There's Emoji Bingo at Mecca Bingo and an instant win game at Tombola Arcade.

Tombola Arcade Emoji

It's the latter that we're featuring today. When you login to Tombola Arcade and head to the Emoji tab you're greeted with a huge selection of emojis. Don't worry this isn't the game card. Your first task is to select your favorite symbols that you wish to be on your game card. Our advice is to simply select shuffle and let the computer pick the symbols instead. It saves a lot of time in our view. You're then invited to wager on the game. As with all Tombola Arcade instants you can play from 5p up to a maximum of 1.

How To Play Emoji

The object of the Emoji game at Tombola Arcade is to match as many of the symbols on your game card as you can. When you click play emojis will appear and the various Emojis that appear at the top of the screen. A total of 20 symbols are drawn and if the drawn symbol matches one on your card then this is marked off in yellow. To win a prize you need to match at least 5 different symbols. The match up process is automatic so all you have to do is sit back and watch the game, whilst listening to music which wouldn't be out of place on Art Attack! Switch it on when you play and let us know if you can imagine Neil Buchanan doing one of his big Art Attacks.

There are eight different prizes on offer when you play Emoji. The higher the wager, the higher the prizes on offer. The prizes are x1, x2, x5, x25, x50, x200 and x00 your stake. The maximum prize is 500 should you get 11 or more tiles covered when wagering 1. Note that you can also win a x20 your initial stake prize if none of the symbols are marked off during the game. Note that you'll win nothing for matching 1, 2, 3 or 4 symbols.

Our Verdict

As an instant win game, Emoji is OK. When we first reviewed it we said that we didn't like that you couldn't pick your game card. That's now changed and if you click the green symbol on the right of your game card you can reset your choices. Emoji has a 96.9% RTP according to Tombola but when we played we found that wins were limited. After a number of turns we actually only recorded one x1 win. This kind of return doesn't encourage repeat play!

To keep your spirits up there's always chat available with other roomies. Note that they're not all playing Emoji which does make things a little bit confusing. You might also want to consider switching the music off as after a while it starts to grate - seriously! Having returned to this review and the game we'd forgotten just how bad the soundtrack actually was! Overall Emoji at Tombola Arcade is worth a look, but it's not the best game available at the site in our view.
