iSoftBet recently released a brand new video pokie game on the market, which managed to catch our attention from the first day it was announced to be released. We have to admit that the video pokie games collection from iSoftBet wasn’t too familiar for us and we didn’t have a chance to put their pokie games to a long real play test.
But Platoon Wild definitely earned its right to be the first one to undergo a thorough investigation thanks to several intriguing details. The first one is the overall game design and the theme used as inspiration. If you are a fan of old war movies, you will recognize the game symbols on the reels, as the main actors from the cult war movie classic Platoon.
This is one of our all time favorite movies and is probably the first movie where Charlie Sheen made a real breakthrough on the movie screen. It’s a really smart move to use original pictures from the movie as main symbols in the game.
There is always a strong urge to try a new video pokie game where you can see your favorite movie actor. The overall design is simple and pretty much standard with 20 pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows. As expected the bets go from $0.20 to a decent $10 per spin and the pay line number can’t be altered. But the detail that attracted us most on the reels of Platoon Wild is the bonus features.
Players can trigger the free spins bonus, once 3 free spins symbols land on the reels, awarding 8 free spins with doubled payouts.
Not much to look forward to, but it looks much better when you see that the bonus can be re-triggered and any combination of 1, 2 or 3 Bullet symbols also awards payouts. Also you can’t miss seeing the Jackpot sign on top of the reels and the attractive 50,000 coins payout.
What We love
We already said that we love the game theme and are really happy to see a video pokie which pays tribute to one of our favorite movies, Platoon.
Creating a regular branded pokie game is easy, but iSoftBet managed to create a great branded pokie, thanks to their hard work and creativity. We love the fact that the main game symbols are identical with the main actors in Platoon. We also love the bonus features, especially the attractive jackpot awards.
What we Do not Like
Platoon Wild is the perfect video pokie game to play and we can’t find any detail we would like to change in the game.
If Platoon is one of your favorite movies too, you won’t even ask this question, but will go straight to the Spin Button. Platoon Wild has everything video pokie games need; a great theme, decent visual effects, good base play payouts, free spins bonus round and a Jackpot attached.
The free spins winnings are doubled and the bonus can be re-triggered, while the Jackpot awarded can range in 100, 1,000 or 2,500 x total bet payout, for 7, 8 or 9 Jackpot symbols on the reels. If this isn’t enough for you then you need to look for alternative ways to have fun online.
