Troll Hunters Slot Review
Join a team of three fearless Shieldmaidens and go on a hunt for trolls in Troll Hunters, a five-reel, five-row video slot that benefits from cluster pays. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2013 release is packed with action and there are plenty of opportunities for big wins. The Play’n Go product benefits from cascading reels, meaning that all winning symbols are removed from the reel grid, leaving a Wild behind. The goal is to clear the entire grid in order to reveal the BONUS letters and trigger free spins. Once there, spinners will get 10 freebies and if they discover Trolls, they will get extra free spins.
Themed after Norse mythology, the Play’n Go title is packed with plenty of familiar symbols. There are three Shieldmaidens that are looking for the Troll. One of them has blonde hair, the other has red hair and the third is a brunette. There are plenty of Earrings on the reels, because they are ladies after all, but ladies that like to drink lots of ale, so expect to see plenty of Beer Mugs as well. They have to eat too and that is why chunks of Meat are also included in the symbols. The Golden Rune is the Wild that will substitute for all symbols on the reels and it appears only during the base game.
The reels are set on a mountaintop covered in snow, because it is a well-known fact that Trolls live high on the mountains. The 2013 release features five reels, five rows and benefits from cluster pays. There are no paylines and, if you want to win a payout, you need to match at least three corresponding symbols on adjacent cells, horizontally or vertically. Thanks to cascading reels, the winning symbols will disappear and a Wild will appear from that winning combination, hopefully, to create a new winning combo and clear more cells, because you need to clear reels in order to trigger the Bonus.
You will notice that BONUS letters are randomly placed in the back of the reels for every spin. Clear the entire reel and reveal the BONUS letters to trigger the Bonus and get 10 free spins. You will be taken to Troll’s cave and there a new set of reels will be waiting for you. Land five matching symbols anywhere on the reels during the Bonus feature and you will win payouts. If you reveal more than one BONUS during the triggering spin, you will get a bigger win multiplier, which starts at 1x. Watch out for Troll symbols, because five of them will get you five extra freebies. Up to 20 free spins can be triggered at once.
The biggest win players can expect in the 2013 release is set at 1,000 times the bet, so up to £40,000 can be won in a single spin. The Wild pays the most, offering 500 times the bet for five of a kind. Clear the entire grid and you will get a bonus of 1,000 times the bet. Regular symbols do not pay as much as the Wild. Troll Hunters’ RTP is 96.73%.
Troll Hunters on Mobile
Despite the fact that Troll Hunters are themed after Norse mythology and despite the fact that the Play’n Go title was released back in 2013, it is pretty up to date when it comes to modern technologies. The slot can be played across all devices and believe us when we tell you that it offers the same gaming experience on all compatible gadgets.
+ Cascading reels with winning combos that add Wilds
+ Symbols pay anywhere on the reels during freebies
+ Playable across all devices
– Can seem a bit complicated in the beginning
– Not easy to get all 20 free spins
We are big fans of Norse mythology and we are particularly glad to see an action-packed video slot themed after Vikings, or Shieldmaidens in this case. The 2013 release houses bright, cartoonish graphics and a fitting soundtrack. We also like the fact that after you create a winning combination, a Wild will be added to the reels, helping you land more wins further on. The Free Spins feature is also quite good, especially because you can land symbols everywhere on the reels and still form a winning combination. We are positive that all spinners will like the Play’n Go title as much as we did.
