Poke the Guy is the most different a slots game has ever been. Is that because of its bonus rounds? Does it offer nothing but free spins? Is there an elephant that controls the reels?
You can guess all day and you still won’t guess close to what Poke the Guy has to offer. If you’re curious, read on to find out exactly what sets this free slot game apart. But, be warned, you might not like what you read.
About Microgaming - Developers of Poke the Guy Slot
Who has brought us this unique and weird slot game? That duty was given to long time slot developers Microgaming. They have been in the industry for a while and I am sure you will have come across their previous work on Star Slots, the home of only the best online slots. Their back catalogue includes the likes of:
- 5 Reel Drive
- Big kahuna: Snakes and Ladders
- Hot Ink
- Major Millions
- Immortal Romance
- House of Dragons
These slot games all stand out in their own way either because of their odd gameplay or over the top themes. Poke the Guy is no different. So what makes Poke the Guy so interesting? Let’s find out.
Poke the Guy Gameplay and Symbols
The idea behind Poke the guy is that it is not a regular slot game. There are no reels, no rows and no pay lines.
The first thing that you might ask yourself when opening up this slot is, ‘is this a joke’? That is because you are presented with a hairy man in a leotard running up and down the screen. The player is then presented with a selection of items to catapult at the unfortunate man.
That is where the gameplay of Poke the Guy lies. All of the items are worth a different amount and you place your bet by selecting a different item. There are rubber ducks, knives, fish, ice- creams and bushes. Hit the guy with the item to earn your reward. The items range from 0.01 to throw or 30.
That is it. You won’t find many other slot games on Star slots with gameplay like this. But is there anything here that is akin to a regular slot game?
Poke the Guy Bonus Features and Free Spins
To start, there is a fast forward button that you can press in order to speed up the rate at which you fire the objects.
That is it. No chances of a bonus round or separate game. There are no free spins or free throws in this case.
Sure, you can win up to 500x your stake if you bet the maximum and manage to hit the guy. That is a nice amount available as a max jackpot but that is really the only good thing that I can say here.
Last Notes on Poke the Guy Online Slot - Hit or Miss?
It is hard for me to understand what Microgaming were thinking when they made this slot game. Mostly because it isn’t a slot game. This would work as bonus round or mini game in another slot but as it is Poke the Guy is a random cluster of nothingness.
You don’t even Poke the Guy. The aim is to hit him with the objects.
Some of you might view this as an anarchic subversion of what to expect from an online slot game. If so, that is great and I hope you enjoy flinging random stuff at the Guy. If however, you are looking for a real slot game experience with high stakes, reels, and pay lines, may I suggest that you visit Star Slots and play some of the best slot games available? At least there is the chance to win some free spins on even the most basic of slots.
Star Slots offers numerous games like this, such as Pirate Princess.
