Platoon Wild

Platoon Wild is the direct sequel to iSoftBet’s Platoon video slot. Launched in the summer of 2016, the Platoon Wild video slot aims to be bigger, “badder”, and better than its predecessor, with official imagery creating an added sense of realism in the game, following on from where the excellent original game left off.

This Platoon sequel is a lot more thematic than the first game, though, and you might even say that it is less of a sequel, and more of a remake.

It could be fair to say that some people at iSoftBet would have preferred the original game to be played like Platoon Wild the first time around, if they’d had their way.

Developers

Both slots are based on the film that made Charlie Sheen a household name. Both slots are green and Vietnam war themed, and both contain excellent imagery from the movies, and nifty special features.

Platoon Wild is just a classier act, though, with better graphics, and, of course, cracking jackpot wins which leave the original game eating dust in its trail.

iSoftBet may not be the biggest name in online casino software development, but on occasion, they do come up with a gem just like this slot.

How to play

If you have played the first slot, you will notice that the second one contains a far more pleasing menu bar. It blends in nicely with the background, and it is a lot less gimmicky.

Silly and colourful high playing card icons have been replaced by more thematic imagery, too. Wagering is cheaper, too, with just 20 lines to bet on in this slot, as opposed to the original game’s thirty.

Platoon Wild requires you to stake at least 0.20 per spin, but if you wish to roll the dice and place maximum stake bets, it won’t set you back any more than 10.00 per spin. A tenner for a maximum stake bet? That’s hugely appealing stuff.

Features

Wild symbols: Wild symbols appear as bullet-hole ridden shields in this slot. These emblems are also the best paying symbols in the slot. They can replace all other symbols in the Platoon Wild game, barring scatters and jackpot icons.

Free spin symbols: Free spin symbols appear as badges, and these silver sensations can trigger a bonus round if three or more of these appear anywhere on the reels at any one time. The bonus round consists of a total of 8 free games, and any wins you have (barring jackpot wins), will be doubled during this feature.

Jackpot icons: The famous Platoon image of Charlie Sheen with his hands in the air (you know the one) acts as the jackpot icon in this slot. Land just 3 or 4 of them on the reels to win 1x, and 5x your total bet, respectively. Land 5 or more and you will pocket a jackpot cash prize.

Maximum Payouts

The jackpot cash prizes in Platoon are dished out if you can land 5 or more jackpot icons anywhere on the reels. In this sense, they act as scatter icons. Land 5, 6, 7, or 8 such icons in any positions on the screen and you will win 200, 1,000, 2,000, or 20,000 coins, respectively.

Land all 9 of them and you can win 50,000 coins, which is the most this slot has to offer. For maximum wagers of just a tenner a go, that’s not too shabby at all.

Summary

There actually isn’t that much difference between Platoon Wild and Platoon in terms of special features. None that would see it warrant a name like that, anyway. The wilds are scarcely any different. We can discuss how this slot outranks its predecessor all day, but we needn’t bother.

You already know that by now. If we just take Platoon Wild as a standalone slot, then we can say we would happily play this until the sun sets. It has cheap bets, it has plenty of wilds, scattered wins, free spins, and a solid theme based on a film that most of us (for whatever reason) love to bits.

You couldn’t really ask for more in a slot. Let’s all take our hats off to iSoftBet on a job well done. Mission accomplished.
