New Instant Win Game From Microgaming


Microgaming has released a new game called Poke the Guy. The guy is the son of a beast that you have to poke (hit). If your aim is true you win a prize. Poke the Guy is live at all Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas, 32Red and All Slots. If you do not find it in the featured games then check out the instant win games category.

The presentation on the screen makes up for the simple conception. The Guy is a wacky character. He stops around a fictional city in a completely outlandish manner. The city itself is a crazy amalgam featuring the Eiffel Tower from Paris, the Mermaid from Copenhagen, the Pyramids from Egypt and even a Mount Rushmore type monument. You have to take down the Guy and save citizens from his silliness and mischief. The arsenal at your command is even crazier. At the low end you start with a rubber duck. Then you move on to a durian fruit, a flesh eating piranha, a kitchen knife and finally a volcanic mountain. Each weapon offers a range of bet values from which you can select using the slider. Across all missiles, the bet range varies from $0.01 to $30.00.

Once you are ready for the kill, you click the electrified slingshot. The Guy will try to evade the projectiles, donning comical poses. You may hit the Guy or you may miss. Each weapon has an appropriate animation for either event. If you hit the Guy with the kitchen knife he will be sliced into pieces. If you miss with the piranha it will create a fish pond in the city. A hit will award a random bet multiplier that can take one of six values from 2x to 500x. Each hit is accompanied by a cloud, with a more ornate cloud assigned to the larger multiplier.

Discerning players will recognise that Poke the Guy is essentially an old fashioned scratch card. It has been fashioned using sound effects and animation into something that slightly resembles an arcade game. The outcomes are random and there is no skill required. You do not aim at the Guy with the catapult. Whether there is a hit or a miss will be randomly determined. Poke the Guy has an RTP of almost 95%, which is a fair call for an instant win game. It has also been fully optimised for mobile, giving players the chance become world saviours from their smartphones and tablets.
