Fancy yourself a bit of an action hero? Well, then you are going to love this fantastic release from Elk Studios. The game begins on the set of a Hollywood action movie based deep in the jungle and you will notice all of the usual movie set paraphernalia such as the camera and lighting equipment. So get ready for your close up as you battle it out in enemy territory to win that top jackpot prize.   

The Design

Boasting the stunning graphics that Elk Studios is renowned for, Platooners has a cartoon element to it and you will see some warfare related symbols such as binoculars dog tags, a hunting knife and a first aid pack among others. The lower values symbols are represented by the standard A, K, Q and J and all of the multipliers can be located in the paytable at the top right-hand side of the screen.

The dog tags are the most lucrative; paying out 1,000x the value of your stake should you land five of them on the reels in a winning combination. The game is called Platooners because of the games three characters ‘Rockets, Grenades and Bullets. Each of them is dressed in camouflage and has their own unique skills which we will look at in more detail later.

The game also features a rather suspenseful that suits the gameplay well as is a great accompaniment to this action-packed adventure.

Games Features

The game’s Wild symbol will substitute for any of the symbols on the reels with the exception of the scatter which is represented by the rather evil looking snake. Landing three or more of these will kick-start the bonus game; Platooners vs. Snakes of Fortune.

The aim of this mini-game is to try and defeat the snake in order to level up and earn higher payouts. There are three levels in total with level 3 being the most difficult but also offering the greatest rewards. There are mystery coins and symbols which will appear here and you can launch attacks with bombs and automatic ammunition refills.

Platooners are randomly triggered and if you land the green one called ‘rockets’ then he will cover reels 1 and 3 with matching symbols for one spin boosting your combination win. ‘Grenades’ is the red one and he automatically adds the Wild symbol to the last three reels for one complete spin. ‘Bullets’ looks like a banana and he will create a 5 of a kind payline using one of the symbols from the first reel.
