Platooners Game Review

Platooners is a pokie about filming a B-movie action flick, think Tropic Thunder starring a load of anthropomorphic fruit, and there’s a whole lot of big and dumb action scenes to wrap your head around. While it may not be Oscar material, you can’t deny it’s entertaining, and there are all kinds of fun bonuses involving explosions, guns and enough military hardware to stage a small war. So it looks good, but is it rewarding? Let’s take a look in our Platooners pokie review.

Background

This Platooners slot game looks great, and does everything it can to remind you that you’re on a film set rather than in a real jungle full of soldiers. Sure, there’s a thick jungle in the background, but the presence of a bevy of cameras and lights in the foreground is a reminder that it’s all just pretend. The low value symbols are the standard 9 – A, in the guide of the letters of the Hollywood sign, while the high value symbols are props like dog tags, bowie knives, binoculars and medical kits. Most exciting is the golden snake symbol, which appears to be the big enemy in this slot.

The Platooners slot game really packs its bonuses in, and with four rows and five reels combining to give you 178 pay lines there are some interesting features straight off the bat. The three actors in this pokie have three different weapons, a machine gun, grenade box and rocket launcher, and they’ll randomly show up on the reels to fire off a few rounds and give you random bonuses. The rocketeer blows up two reels to replace all of the symbols with wilds, the grenadier randomly lobs grenades at scattered symbols and turns them wild, while the gunner shoots a whole payline to turn them into the same symbol and make a guaranteed win. With all these bonuses to enjoy it’s no wonder that the RTP is above average at 96.3%.

Bonuses

While these bonuses are fun, the main bonus in this game has you fighting the scary golden snake from the movie. Landing three or more bonus symbols grants you 15 free spins to fight the snake, though you get an extra actor to help you if you land more bonus symbols. Each spin allows the actors to attack the snake, and each time they hit it you win a cash prize, with the ultimate aim being to destroy it and move to the next level. It’s much easier with three actors, but you can get upgrades to your weapons and bombs to damage the snake randomly as you play. Manage to beat the snake and your weapons will be upgraded, you’ll move to the next level, and the potential prizes go up.

CasinoNZ Verdict

Platooners is a great looking game that manages to turn out a genuinely original game that blows most slots out of the water. The theme is fun, the bonuses are fun and the main bonus is really fun, though the best part is definitely the generous prizes!
