How to play Platoon slot
The Platoon slot is available to play for fun for free in its trial version with 1,000 virtual credits. Before starting to play you must assign the value of a coin, the internal divisa of the game that is used to place bets. Access the menu at the bottom left and choose how much you want to pay for a coin from seven options from 0.01 to 1 credit.
Next, set the line bet (Line Bet) from 1 to 10 coins and activate from 1 to 30 pay lines (Lines). The cost of a spin that is deducted from the balance (Total Bet) is calculated by multiplying these two values by the cost of a coin.
After setting the bet parameters, the game with Spin begins. You can also schedule automatic spins (Auto Spin) and try to win a Big Win playing with the maximum bet (Bet Max).
Game symbols and payouts
Movie slot Platoon is set on a battlefield during the war in Vietnam. Its screen shows 11 basic thematic symbols plus 2 special ones. Among the basic symbols, the least profitable and most frequent symbols are the icons of cards from 9 to Ace that pay from 3 to 70 times the bet per line.
The portraits with the protagonists of the film Platoon are more profitable, their combinations multiply the bet per line from x10 to x1000. The paytable (Paytable) shows your prizes in credits according to the established bet.
In addition, two special symbols appear on the screen of the 5 reel slot Platoon: the Wild Wild and the Bonus. The wild with the image of a tank is the most coveted symbol. Not only can it substitute for any missing basic symbols in a combination, but it also triggers a respin, that is, a free replay roll during which it changes squares in order to produce more combinations. What’s more, all the combinations that the Wild is part of are paid in triple by multiplying the prize indicated in the pay table x3.
The Bonus symbol with the image of a helicopter awards prizes for coming out with three or more images on any space on the reels. Unlike other symbols, the payouts of the Bonus symbol multiply the total bet x5, x10 and x15. In addition, 3, 4 and 5 helicopters in any space activate the free spins bonus.
Respins and extra multiplier of Platoon
By getting on the screen of the slot Platoon a symbol Wild with the image of a tank you get guaranteed prizes. For starters, it serves as a wild card and works on any basic image by composing or completing your prize combination. What’s more, all the prizes for combinations with Wild are paid in triple, multiplying x3 the amount of the pay table.
After the won prize is credited, the wild symbol starts a respin for free without discounting the bet. If after the respin the wild symbol is part of another prize combination, the spin is replayed for free. In addition, after each respin the Wild moves one box to the left helping to form more winning combinations until it disappears from the screen or stops producing combinations.
Free Spins Bonus
The bonus round with free spins is triggered by three or more Bonus symbols with a war helicopter in any position on the screen that also pay prizes:
- 3 Bonus symbols initiate 8 free spins and multiply the total bet x5.
- 4 helicopters activate 10 Free Spins and give rewards of 10x the cost of a roll.
- 5 Bonus symbols give 12 free spins and pay 15x the total bet.
During the free spins series the combinations on the Platoon slot are calculated in both directions, from left to right and vice versa, increasing the chance of winning prizes. You can get an extra Free Spins if you get three to five Bonus symbols again. However, helicopters do not award credit prizes during the bonus round.
