About the Developer

Elk Studios is a Swedish based company that was established in 2012.

About the Game

Platooners is set on a Hollywood set and includes a dense jungle backdrop. Symbols on the reels include the usual A to 10 card values, medical bags, binoculars, knives, totem masks, Platooners dog plates and more. The plates play out the highest value giving you 50x your bet when you land 5 on a payline. The slot also has a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the bonus scatter.

Each of the characters has their own special feature which is activated randomly. Their bonus features include;

  • Rockets Platooner feature - Here the green Rockets Platooner will launch rockets at the 1st and 3rd reels filling them with the same symbol. This will improve your chances of winning across many paylines.
  • Grenades Platooner feature- The red Grenades Platooner throws grenades at the reels and the result is random wilds on the 3rd, 4th and 5th
  • Bullets Platooner feature- The yellow Bullets Platooner fires his machine gun at the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th This usually leads to at least one 5 of a kind winning combination being formed. If you’re lucky, you get 5 bonus symbols which will activate the main bonus feature and all 3 Platooners become active on every free spin.
  • Platooners vs Snakes of Fortune feature- This feature is played when 3 or more snake bonus symbols land anywhere on the reels. It starts off with 15 free spins. The Platooners then take turns to attack the snake.

The more bonus symbols you used to activate the feature, the more attacks you’ll get. 3 bonus symbols give you 1 Platooner on each free spin while 4 give you 2 Platooners on each free spin. If you activate the feature with 5 bonus symbols, all 3 Platooners will land on each free spin.

If you go in with a pair of Platooners, the damage to the snake is doubled.  If you go in with 3, the damage is tripled. The goal is to defeat the snake. If you manage this, the Platooners’ weapons are given an upgrade which will ultimately put the snake in more danger and give you a chance to defeat it.

The Verdict

Platooners slot has a medium to high variance and offers maximum payouts of 2,500x your bet on every spin/free spin. The Platooners vs Snakes of Fortune feature is likely to be the most profitable thanks to the chance that several Platooners will be active on every free spin.
