Platoon Wild is a war themed video pokie game for which the designers found their inspiration in the cult 1986 Vietnam movie, Platoon. This great film won a number of awards and recognitions worldwide and even today remains as one of the best war movies of all times.
Based on the real veteran experience of the script writer and director, Oliver Stone, Platoon brought to life the real everyday ordeals and terrors soldiers had to endure in this gruesome war. It’s no wonder that a video pokie game was created to pay tribute to this great movie achievement, making sure it will never be forgotten.
If you have watched this movie you will recognize the soldier symbols in the game which are cut outs of the real actors in the movie shooting. Players can see Charlie Sheen (Chris Taylor), Tom Berenger (Staff Sergeant Bob Barnes), Willem Dafoe (Sergeant Elias) and Keith David (King).
These characters were the heroes of many people around the world and were the starting point in the professional career of many actors. With its great graphic, animations and original soundtrack from the movies scenes, Platoon Wild will leave you spinning the reels intensely as gunshots echo in the background.
Platoon Wild is the latest video pokie game coming from iSoftBet. This provider was unknown to the majority of online players until recently, but with a decent number of new pokie releases, iSoftBet managed to catch the attention of many curious players. Their pokie games are fun and fast to play, with interesting bonus features and attractive Jackpots attached.
How to Play
The designers at iSoftBet decided to go with a 20 pay line, 5 reel and 3 row design with their latest pokie game. The bet levels range from $0.20 to $10 per spin, making Platoon Wild a perfect game for high rollers or simply players who like to play on higher bets from time to time.
The bet size can be adjusted by using the Coin Value button, while the Auto Play feature can be set to a maximum of 1,000 auto spins and the option to stop when a jackpot is won or a loss/win limit is reached.
At first look Platoon Wild doesn’t have much to offer in terms of bonus features. There is only one classic bonus feature in the form of a free spins bonus round. It is triggered when 3 Free Spins symbols land on the reels awarding 8 free spins in total.
The free spins bonus winnings will be doubled in payment and another set of Free Spins symbols will award additional 8 free spins. Still what makes this feature attractive is the fact that the symbols can come stacked across all reels and that any combination with 1, 2 or 3 bullet symbols also awards a payout.
This detail adds to the frequency and volume of the payouts during the free spins bonus. Also the Jackpot symbols tend to come more often and in a bigger number during the free spins round. This can make triggering one of the Jackpot payouts easier and more realistic.
The biggest payouts in Platoon Wild can come if one of the Jackpot payouts is awarded. The value of the Jackpot won depends on the number of Jackpot symbols that trigger it.
Players can win 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 jackpot symbols in a single spin, which will award an according win of 1x bet, 5x bet, 200, 1,000, 2,000, 20,000 and the maximum 50,000 coins. This means that the highest possible payout on Platoon Wild is a great 2,500 x total bet in a single spin.
Platoon is one of our all time favorite movies, which even after all these years still brings strong emotions every time we see it. It’s a classic that will never die or be forgotten, so we can understand iSoftBets inspiration to create a video pokie game with this theme.
They did a great job, by implementing decent animations and graphics, using the original actors as symbols and by adding intense background music. Platoon Wild has a fast and dynamic game play, where the real excitement starts when the free spins bonus is triggered.
During the 8 free spins all wins are doubled in payout, except for the Jackpots. Even so players have a chance to win big as the free spins can be re-triggered and the 50,000 coins Jackpot can be won if 9 Jackpot symbols land on the reels of Platoon Wild.
