Based on the academy award winning film by the same name, join Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen and Tom Berenger in the sweaty jungles of Vietnam in the Platoon slot.
Film slots can be hit or miss. On one hand you get the likes of NetEnt’s Aliens slot, which is picture perfect and, though unusual, has some decent wins.
Then there’s the other end of the scale in the Platoon mobile slot. Which in every way, stays true to the film, and yet when it comes to any truly impressive wins, lacks serious hits.
And it truly is well done. From all the main characters, to dog tags on the high card symbols, tanks and helicopters, you could easily get lost in the Vietnam jungle, with all the original sounds straight from the movie.
We should point out that five of a kind wins on even the highest symbol doesn’t even cover your overall bet.
So when we say this mobile video slot pays out little, you can see what we mean. About the only chance you’ll have to get more than your bet’s worth is with the roaming wilds.
Much like in Jack & the Beanstalk mobile slot, when a wild shows up on screen at any time, it will give you one free re-spin and move from the right to the left, and keep giving you free re-spins until it hits reel number one.
With a 3x multiplier on the wild, it can bring some decent returns every once in while. And to give it its due, the Platoon slot wild shows up more often than in Jack. Yet the wins, at best, are a couple of times your bet, maybe 10x to 15x if you are very, very lucky.
Unsurprisingly Vietnam is not as good an environment as climbing beanstalks.
If there’s any big wins to be had with this iSoftbet game it’s during the free spins.
Well, actually, that’s not technically true. You’ll still need the 3x multiplier on the wild and get 5 bonus symbols for the top prize of 30,000 coins.
Yet mostly you’ll get 3 bonus symbols and 5 free spins. And whilst you do get instant cash when you get the free spins (from 5x to 15x your bet), but with no multiplier on the free spins, it’s all down to that wild showing up often.
And sure, you can, potentially, get 100x your bet win. But that’s pretty out there. If you do win that, we would definitely recommend moving to another Android or iOS slot, as that’s as much as you’ll ever get here.
All in all Platoon slot game is battling it out for your innocence – and much like the US army – it loses. Ninja Chef slot by iSoftbet is a far better low risk slot if that’s what you are after.

Wilds: The tank is the wild symbol and moves from right to left, giving you a free re-spin every time it moves across the five reels. It also comes with a 3x multiplier and is your one salvation out of this hell hole of a jungle.
Scatters & Free Spins: The helicopter is the scatter symbol and will trigger the bonus games.
You can re-trigger the free spins, though you don't get the instant win.
Vietnam was hell, and to be honest, so was reviewing this Platoon mobile slot.
The problem was that we wanted to like it. The theme is authentic to the film and really works. The roaming wild shows up often and is a bonus feature we've loved in many slot games in the past.
Yet if roaming wilds is what you're after, we'd probably still recommend something like The Invisible Man slot machine.
Mostly because you'll be hard pressed to find any decent wins, or hope for them, as you play. That said, Platoon works well enough and if you are a fan of the movie, you might find some easy going enjoyable spins.
