Game maker Microgaming has assuredly been around the block more than a few times and has a reputation for making high-quality slots. However, their latest effort might leave purists scratching their heads trying to categorise it and wondering just what they stumbled into. This particular slot is the Poke The Guy slot and it by all appearances has more in common with a classic arcade video game than a traditional slot.

Do read on for more poke-worthy details!

Poke The Guy And Poke Up Some Fun!

The Poke The Guy slot has a decidedly cartoonish look of the sort found in the early part of last century. The onscreen action involves chasing a weird looking guy around and trying to hit him with an eclectic mix of objects like knives, dead fish, bushes, rubber duckies and even ice creams. It can be played on mobile and on practically any device with Internet connectivity.

The main character here is dressed in a yellow outfit that’s decidedly unlike anything in the stores. He looks like a banana with facial hair, loves to smile, is as agile as a monkey and loves to jump around like one.

The setting here is a cartoon map that’s filled with high-rise buildings, lakes, trees, balloons and such famous items as the Statue of Liberty, the Sphinx, Mount Rushmore, the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids.

There are no reels, rows or paylines in the Poke The Guy slot and there’s not much similarity with other slots. The gameplay objective here is simply to catapult varied items at the yellow-suited guy in the hope of hitting him and so winning varying cash awards.

Bet amounts vary depending on what is used to catapult items at the main character, with the lowest and highest bet amounts being set at ₤0.01 and ₤30 respectively. A Fast Forward button is featured for impatient fellows and when pressed will considerably speed up gameplay.

Special Features

No special features as such are available in the Poke the Guy slots. Payouts here appear to be randomly calculated and can feature a 2x, 4x, 8x, 12x, 18x or even a 500x win multiplier.

Bets amount here vary depending on the weapon used, but generally the bigger the bet amount the greater the potential payout.

Final Thoughts

The Poke The Guy slot defies classification and offers simple fun and massive potential wins. It has a decidedly dated look and is worth checking out.
