For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Platoon is a 1986 war film, which was written and directed by Oliver Stone. It’s the first of a trilogy of Vietnam War films directed by Stone, and it stars actors like Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe and Charlie Sheen. It went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1986, whilst picking up further awards for Best Director, Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing. Of course, like all good and popular war films, it’s important for you to have a slot game to play based on such, and iSoftBet has taken it upon themselves to create such, and have entitled it Platoon Wild. So, if you’re ready to don your khaki clothes and aim your gun, this one will take you right in to the thick of the action and have you prepared for war in no time. Your game play will also be accompanied by a military, adventurous piece of music, and you can always count on this developer to provide stunning graphics and entertaining game play alongside.

Take Your Aim and Fire!

As soon as you load up the game, you’ll be presented with five reels and three rows worth of an interface, so everything is very familiar in terms of the overall design. iSoftBet has also incorporated a total of 20 different pay lines, and these are not able to be altered in any way, so you’ll always be wagering on such. It’s upon these reels that you will find the game’s different icons, and these begin with three different BAR symbols – a single, a double and a triple. There’s also an ‘ANY BAR‘ icon, which offers up the lowest possible standard symbol pay out. The remaining icons exist as four different symbols, and these are four characters from the movie. You’ll find Charlie Sheen as Private First Class Chris Taylor, Tom Berenger as Staff Sergeant Bob Barnes, Willem Dafoe as Sergeant Elias and Keith David as King.

When it comes to the time for you to place your wagers on the game, you are able to customise this particular feature solely by increasing or decreasing the coin value. Here, you’re able to choose between a range of €0.01 and €0.50. This allows you to place a maximum overall wager of €10 per spin. There’s also the possibility to utilise the game’s ‘Auto Spin‘ button, which allows you to spin the reels up to a maximum of 1,000 consecutive times.

Claim Victory for Your Country!

When you head into a battle, you need to have certain specialities at hand in order to try and gain the upper hand. Fortunately, the developer has also taken this to mind and has incorporated such into this one. The special additions of this game start with its wild symbol, and this is represented by the army badge with the word ‘WILD‘ written on it. If a wild does show up on the reels, you’ll find that it will stand in for any other icon in order to form a win, with the only exception to this being the free spins and jackpot symbols.

And speaking of the free spins symbols, these are represented by the icon stating the words ‘Free Spins‘ in silver metal. You’ll need to spin three of these into view in order to be rewarded with eight free spins of the reels, but these work as scatter icons so they can show up in any location to activate the free spins round. All wins achieved during the free spins round will also be doubled, with the exception of any jackpot wins.

The jackpot symbol of this game is represented by the icon of the soldier with his arms raised, and five or more of these showing up in view in any location will pay out a jackpot amount. Five offer up a pay out of 200 coins, six will provide you with a reward of 1,000 coins, seven offer up 2,000 coins, eight provide a pay out of 20,000 coins and nine of them will give you the chance to receive a total of 50,000 coins altogether.

To Summarise

Platoon Wild takes all of the thrills and wonder of the movie and injects them vigorously into this game. It has some interesting special features, although a bonus round would also be something spectacular. However, the wilds, free spins and jackpot offerings are very intriguing on the whole, while a nice choice of high quality graphics also exist within.
