It’s time to dim the lights, get the camera rolling and the guns blazing in this Platooners slot game.
The follow up from the Bloopers slot, Elk’s Platooners mobile slot game brings you all the high action of a blockbuster army movie to the small screen.
The three recruits are armed with rockets, machine guns and grenades and promise explosive wins when they show up on screen.
But will this 178 ways to win slot live up to its impressive arsenal of weapons? Or will we wonder why this army game is even needed?
The max win of Platooners is 2,500 times your bet, which is a decent amount for an online slot machine. Mostly we are happy if they pay out anything close to 1,000 times your bet.
Which actually makes this slot game a medium to high variance machine, so be careful with your budget and use one of their automatic slot strategy to keep your wallet from going dry.
The army theme should probably give it away that this is not for the faint of heart, even despite the cutesy team of the production crew.
At any point, any one of the three colourful characters will show up and give you one of three features; this can be mystery reels, guaranteed 5 of a kind wins, or extra wilds.
In all cases, these work out in your favour and are certainly fun to watch, even if not always that easy to catch, but they make up for the lack of free spins.
The main bonus game is when you get a chance to defeat the snake of fortune. Unfortunately, the fun is taken away a little by the fact that you just stand there and watch.
At least with the Jumanji mobile game you get to roll a dice to decide your fate, but here you watch and see if the little characters can get to level 3 – the answer is mostly no. You’ll be lucky to get to level 2.
Not as much fun as the multiple bonus features in their Birthday! machine, but that’s not to say this video slot doesn’t have plenty of charm, as long as you don’t mind the risky nature of war.

Wild: The 'wild' symbol will replace all other symbols on the reels except for the snakehead scatters, much like all other Elk Studios casino games.
Action Spins: At any time during any spin, one of the three characters may show up on the reels and grant you one of the features below:
Snake of Fortune Bonus: Get 3 snakehead scatter symbols and you get a fun little animation where you watch the 3 platooners try and kill off a rock snake.
You start with 15 rounds but can hit additional bonus attacks as you slowly unravel the snake.
These can be extra bullet rounds, double attack (where two platoons attack at once rather than by turn) or triple attacks, upgrade in weapons etc...
Defeating a snake will lead to a level up and bigger, better, cash prizes.
This is Hollywood, where dreams come true, but it's hard work getting to the top of the pile.
The same can be said of this Platooners slot on mobile, which has some decent wins, especially if you get to level 3 of the snake, or some decent 5 of a kind wins.
Don't expect as much action as with Microgaming Girls With Guns slot machine, but as far as war games go, this is fun enough.
