The Platooners slot is loosely based on the 1986 film, Platoon, starring Charlie Sheen, in which a group of men head off to war in Vietnam in the 1960s. While the movie is quite harrowing, the maker of the slot game, Elk Studios, has brought some welcome humour to the proceedings.
The three Platooners are, in fact, actors who are shooting a Hollywood movie in which the enemies are golden snakes. Armed with various weapons, the soldiers are primed and ready to shoot down generous cash prizes on your behalf. As they randomly award Action Spins, they can add identical symbols, wild symbols, and five-of-a-kind wins to the reel. Plus, the snake scatter symbol has the potential to trigger the Platooners Vs Snakes of Fortune Bonus where the soldiers have fifteen attempts to win you as many prizes as possible. You can enjoy this amusing video slot on our mobile phone casino with bets of 20p to £100 per spin, and we’re sure that you’ll be keen to set your sights on the tasty target of 250,000 coins!
The game begins with an intro, showing the three animated soldiers heading out on a nighttime mission. The scene then cuts to the main game screen where you can see cameras and lighting in the foreground, and a jungle set in the background. Exotic birdsong and fast-paced piano music with jungle beats provide the upbeat soundtrack. The brightly coloured paytable symbols contrast nicely against the dark green of the palm trees and vegetation.
There’s a golden snake’s head, a Hollywood sign-inspired “WILD” symbol, Platooners dog-tags, binoculars, knives, medical bags, and four playing card symbols. The “WILD” symbol is, as you’ve hopefully already guessed, does exactly what it says on the tin. It can replace any other symbol to help create winning combinations apart from the bonus scatter.
The bonus scatter is the golden snake’s head, and three, four or five anywhere in view kick off the Platooners Vs Snakes of Fortune feature. Depending on how many scatters trigger the feature, you get to use one, two or all three of the soldiers. To start with, you get fifteen free spins, and on each spin, the soldiers attack the snake with their weapons. If two or three soldiers are active on each spin, double or triple damage is caused to the snake. If you manage to defeat the snake before your free games run out, you move onto another level to take on a bigger snake with more valuable prizes, and finally, the third level is unlocked.
Another exciting addition to this mobile slot is Action Spins, which can be randomly activated during the base game. The soldier with bullets awards at least one five-of-a-kind win. The soldier with grenades adds extra wild symbols to Reels 3, 4, and 5. The soldier with rocket launchers fires matching symbols onto the reels. The Platooners slot is highly innovative and just as entertaining as it sounds. So, join the gang in the jungle and see if you can stalk some incredible cash prizes at Touch Mobile Casino today!
