If you’re a fan of Elk Studios’ the Bloopers slot, it’s time to meet the Platooners! The Minion-Esque film crew has returned to star in its very own action movie, complete with scenery, lights, cameras, and microphones. The atmosphere is buzzing as the animated stars prepare to make Hollywood history as they take on gold-filled snakes with grenades, rockets, and machine guns in a bid to win you prizes. To keep you glued to the screen throughout, the slot game offers you up to 178 ways to win, a top jackpot of 250,000 coins, and an impressive arsenal of bonus features including wild substitutions, randomly awarded Action Spins, and the Snakes of Fortune Bonus Game.
When you launch the Platooners slot, you have the option to turn the sound effects on or off before moving on to the main game. Once you’ve made your choice, you find yourself in a jungle setting which is lit up by bright studio lights. As the sounds of tree frogs, birds, and wild animals fill the air, you begin to encounter the different types of symbols that can appear on the reels during play. There are the Snakes of Fortune, a medical bag, army dog tags bearing the game’s name, binoculars, knives, J, Q, K, and A. The game controls are conveniently located at each corner of the screen, allowing you to change the size of your stake, enable auto-play, view the paytable, and spin the reels.
In the Platooners slot game, the wild symbol is depicted as the word “WILD” in Hollywood sign-style lettering. It can handily replace any other symbol on the same payline except for the scatter symbol, which means that it has the potential to score you more prizes.
The scatter symbol in the Platooners slot is represented by one of the Snakes of Fortune – a gold-coloured reptile with glowing red eyes and sharp fangs. Three or more scatters initiate the main bonus game.
The Platooners slot offers an exciting randomly-triggered special feature known as Action Spins. It’s activated whenever one of the three soldiers (N.B., the Bloopers) appears on the screen.
Each soldier comes with a different bonus feature:
- The green soldier comes equipped with a rocket launcher which he fires at Reels 1 and 3 to fill them with a mystery stacked symbol;
- The red character adds random wilds to Reels 3, 4, and 5 by throwing grenades at random positions on the screen;
- The yellow soldier wields a machine gun which he fires at the reel set to create one or more five-of-a-kind winning combinations.
The second bonus feature in the Platooners slot is the Snakes of Fortune Bonus, and if it’s activated by three, four or five scatters, one, two or all three of the soldiers respectively are used in the feature. You have fifteen rounds of ammunition with which to try and kill the snake, and each successful hit is rewarded with extra ammo, extra attacks or instant cash prizes. The more levels that you gain during the feature, the more damage the soldiers’ weapons inflict upon the snakes.
