How to Play the Platoon Slot
Before starting the reels of the Platoon slot by iSoftBet, you should adjust your settings for the coin value, placing a bet and select the required number of active lines. You can do it by using the control panel found below the reels. There you can also find the Paytable button with the description of all the symbols, bonus options and rules.
The Platoon online slot comes with denomination, this means that you can convert one game currency into another. Initially, an amount of credits is deposited into your account. It is updated when the slot is reloaded. However, the bets are calculated in coins. You can change the coins/credits exchange rate by using the Coin Value button. The minimum value is 0.01 credits, the maximum one is 1 credit.
You can change the line bet in the range of 1 to 10 coins by clicking the Lines button. By using Lines you can change the number of lines. These three parameters affect the total bet which is shown in the Total Bet section. By clicking Paytable you can open the pay table to see the payouts for combinations of symbols in the slot. Unlike most of the slots, the pay table shows the amount of the prize in credits rather than the multipliers. The higher the Coin Value and Line Bet are, the bigger the payout is.
The rules of forming combinations are different in the main and bonus games. In the main game identical symbols should line up along one active line and on adjacent reels. One symbol should land on the first reel. An exception is the Scatter symbols which award the prizes regardless of their position on the game screen. In the bonus round combinations are formed both from left to right and back. Here the Scatter symbols award prizes for appearing in the required number.
An important point of the slot is that winning combos earn payouts only if they line up on active lines. For example, if you play on five lines and identical symbols land on lines from 6 to 30, the prizes are not awarded. The payout for winning combinations of regular symbols is calculated according to the formula: the line bet is multiplied by the symbol multiplier. The payout for the Scatter symbols is different. To find it out, multiply the total bet by the symbol multiplier. Anyway all prizes for a spin are calculated automatically and credited to the account. Information boxes found on the control panel help you to monitor your balance and learn the amount of your win for the previous spin.
- Total Bet - your total bet per spin
- Bet - your line bet
- Balance - your current account
- Winnings - your win for the previous spin
You can start the reels spinning in two modes - by using the Auto Spin feature or manually by clicking the Spin button. The first option allows you to adjust additional values to stop the reels. For example, you can set the maximum amount of loss or win. Once you click Spin, the reels make a single spin and if you do not want to wait for them to stop, you can hit Stop and they will immediately stop spinning.
