We vaguely remember when the original Platoon movie came out in 1986, but those memories are about to get a lot more vivid as iSoftBet, one of the fastest growing developers in the online industry, has just launched the official video slot based on one of the greatest war movies of all time.
iSoftBet is definitely a name to have on your radar as while it is by no means at the level of the big three of Playtech, Microgaming and Net Entertainment yet, it is becoming an important addition to the portfolios of many of the top online casinos. Indeed, such is its recent impact on the market that we recently dedicated a full and detailed feature to the company and its games and that selection looks set to grow immensely in 2014, not least because the company already has more than four hundred casino game titles to its name, with more on the way.
One of the driving factors behind this greatly enhanced gaming selection is their partnership with MGM Interactive, which also serves to solidify their position as one of the up and coming players in the market. In the same way that Playtech is building its brand with Marvel and Microgaming with DC, iSoftBet is hoping that the extensive back catalogue of popular movie titles owned by MGM will catapult them to the forefront of the gaming market, with Platoon expected to be the first of many.
If you’re not quite as old as us and don’t remember Platoon, it brought war to the screen before a time where it felt like every other movie had a war element. Big names like Charlie Sheen and Willem Dafoe brought the experiences of the Vietnam War to life based on real life experiences of director Oliver Stone. It won Academy Awards and still appears on lists of the best war movies of all time, and iSoftBet will undoubtedly be hoping that it also puts in an appearance on lists of the best slots of all time, and it has every chance.
The game is highlighted by a unique themed design, bonus features that stay true to the original movie and a gameplay layout that offers more than a hundred ways to win on every spin. Authentic video graphics and sound effects make it one of the more impressive slots that we’ve seen in recent months whether you’re a fan of the movie or not.
Nir Elbaz, Business Development Director at iSoftBet, was concise but poignant in his comments on the new launch, saying: “Our branded games collection has gone from strength to strength over the last year and with the addition of Platoon to our catalogue, we’re confident that our customers will be thrilled by what we have on offer.”
iSoftBet’s casino games are already proving to be a big hit with players at Vera & John Casino following an agreement that was signed in April of this year, and it remains one of the very best places to sample not only Platoon but many more great games.
