Poke The Guy Slot by Microgaming


Poke the Guy is a scratch card-style game developed by the renowned software developer Microgaming. It’s best described as a simple slot filled with slapstick fun and players start by selecting their bet size which ranges from 0.05 to 30.00.

Each bet size has a different item attached to it and the objective of the game is to try and hit the unusual-looking ape wearing a onesie. Poke the Guy has no reels, no paylines and no symbols to match and you will either find it highly entertaining or become easily bored. This medium variance game has an RTP of 94.89% and a maximum win of 500x your stake and it’s playable across all devices.

Poke the Guy Slot Features

As mentioned above, Poke the Guy does not have any specific features and it comes down to chasing an Ape around the screen whilst trying to hit him with various objects like rubber ducks, ice cream, knives etc. To win payouts players must click on the weapon and shoot the Ape, it is, however, a tad frustrating because the weapon shoots at random meaning you have no control over what happens on the game’s screen.

The payouts are also randomly dispersed with wins of 2x, 4x, 8x, 12x, 18x or 500x multiplier on the triggering bets. The bigger the bets the bigger the payouts players receive in Poke the Guy and players can adjust their bets in the Total Bet outfit. The shooting can also be sped up by activating the fast-forward option.


Poke the Guy looks more like an arcade game than a video slot and it’s not one of Microgaming’s greatest achievements. You will either become extremely bored playing this cartoon-themed slot or find it highly entertaining. Poke the Guy and decide for yourself.
