Poke the Guy Slot Overview
Poke the Guy slot game is a bit of a puzzle. It doesn’t look like an online video slot. And it doesn’t play like an online video slot – at least on the face of things. So, why are we looking at it here? Well, it is kind of a slot, and it comes from just about the world’s biggest online video slot company, Microgaming.
This is a single-screen game that comes in with crude cartoony graphics and the slogan “Simple Silly Fun”. Well, there’s nothing wrong with simple, silly fun if it’s done with a certain amount of style and class, but does Poke the Guy slot work even on that basis?
What we do know is that the game has proved quite popular. While it hasn’t been featured at many casinos yet, since its release it’s ridden the usual early-doors bump in popularity and kept it going. People obviously like playing this game for some reason or another.
To put it into the slot terms we’re not quite sure it qualifies for: you can gamble between 0.01 coins and 30 coins, and the top prize is 500 times your stake. That’s a probable medium variance rating of medium volatility and a top prize of £15,000.
A mad, mad, mad world!
It’s possible to translate the screen layout here into a sort of version of a slot, with a 5 by 3 grid. The backdrop is a mishmash of some sort of city layout with a Sphinx (or an assortment of other international iconic buildings and monuments), and a fairground, and the sea, and some houses. It looks like a way-back version of a mobile game.
The main character is the Guy of the title. He is very odd looking indeed, with a goofy face and some sort of all-in-one body suit on.
He has one job. To pop up and shoot around the screen.
You, in your turn, have your own job, which is to fire missiles at him and hit him. Your choice of a missile is shot out of something that looks like an electric cattle prod, which fires ice cream, rubber ducks, knives and the like at the weird man.
The choice of weapon is made by changing your bet, though – like most of this game – there’s no logic to this. Then the shots are fired at random. If you get impatient with even this minimal sequence then you can use a Fast Forward button to go at a quick step through the motions.
Crazy like a fox
There are no special features or bonuses on this game. Wins come with a random multiplier of 2x, 4x, 8x, 12x, 18x, or 500x stake.
Poke the Guy slot game is an oddity. Our best bet is that is aimed at 4Channers or the like, with its odd surreal graphics and gameplay. It’s closer to an instant win scratch card than a slot and while it offers some of the looks of a video game it is missing the one thing that makes a video game compelling – interactive control!
Honestly, the best bet with this Poke the Guy slot game is to try it yourself. People are playing it and enjoying it, or at least enjoying it enough to come back and play again. So what do the reviewers – include one who called it the world ever game! – know? You will have to stake your stake and make your choice my friend!
