On the reels players will come across the playing card symbols Ace through to 10 coupled with knives, medical bags, binoculars, Platooners dog tags and totem pole styled masks. The dog tags are the highest value symbol awarding players with x50 of their stake if they are lucky enough to land five across a pay line. There is also a wild which can replace all symbols apart from the bonus scatter to create winning combinations. One of the most interesting things in this slot is that the characters interact with the reels and appear randomly to activate their own specific bonus feature as follows: The Rockets Platooner feature plays out with the green Rockets Platooner firing rockets at the first and third reels filling them with matching symbols which increases the players chance to win across many of the pay lines. The Grenades Platooner feature sees the red Grenades Platooner throwing hand grenades onto the reels to activate randomly generated wilds on the third, fourth and fifth reels.
Finally, there is the Bullets Platooner feature and players will see the yellow Bullets Platooner firing an enormous machine gun after reel one comes to a stop at the other reels. This feature will generate at least one winning combination made up of five of the same symbols. Lucky players will land the five bonus symbols as this will in turn activate the main bonus feature with the three Platooners active for every free spin. There is no getting away from the Platooners vs Snakes of Fortune feature which is the main attraction in Platooners. This feature comes into play when the player lands three or more of the snake bonus symbols anywhere on their reels. The player begins the feature with 15 free spins and the Platooners begin to attack the snake. The more bonus symbols the player has landed to activate the feature the more attacks they have to play with.
Landing three bonus symbols will award one Platooner with every free spin whereas landing four awards two Platooners and five bonus symbols awards the best with all three Platooners coming into play on each free spin. The whole aim is for the player to defeat the snake with the Platooners, two Platooners and there will be double the damage and three causes three times as much damage and the Platooners weapons are also upgraded to cause maximum damage to the snake. Not only can players get the benefit with extra Platooners and ammunition they are also awarded with bombs that can damage larger areas of the snake and defeating the snake sees the player progressing to the next level. There are three levels which can see the player being awarded many extra free spins.
