Trolls Slot from NetEnt
In Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ Trolls are large and scary looking creatures (though not too bright). You’ll find the Trolls that are the symbols in this Net Entertainment slot to be a lot friendlier looking – full of character, and mostly smiling! This 5-reel video slot has 2 different wilds in the base game. Your wins can be multiplied by either 2x or 4x with these. There is also a free spins bonus round (up to 30 spins can be triggered), where your wins benefit from a further 3x multiplier. This is a colorful and engaging slot, though there is nothing particularly unique or innovative about the game play.
How to Win on the Trolls Slot
Different Trolls make up most of the best symbols – though the biggest payouts are for the wilds, which are represented by what looks like tree stumps filled with gold coins. These symbols substitute for any of the others, and will double any wins they become a part of too. Scatters are not replaced by wilds as usual. If you line up 5 wilds on one of the 20 win lines, then you’ll get 10,000 coins, with 2500 coins for just 4.
In addition to the regular wilds, there is a ‘Golden Wild’ on reel 3. This has the same design, only the word ‘wild’ is gold instead of blue. This multiplies any win by 4. Both wilds are even more powerful during the free spins game, where their multipliers combine with an overall 3x multiplier on your total win.
Troll payouts start with an old king type, wearing a crown and sporting a huge nose. This will get you 750 coins for 5 of a kind – and pays from just 2 from the left (others require at least 3). A smiling queen (holding a crown this time) comes next at 500 coins for 5, a prize shared with a side profile of a Troll with a huge club. Next comes on with a golden nose-ring, then a baby Troll (both at 250 for 5). A gnome is the last of the truly unique symbols – I am really not sure of the Troll / Gnome connection, though the Gnome appears cheerful enough.
Playing card symbols ace down to 10 then make up the smaller wins.
Full Moon Scatters and Free Spins
Scatter symbols pay out prizes based on the total number in view – regardless of their position relative to the win-lines. These are a full moon view, with the word scatter in green. You’ll get a prize based on your total spin amount for 2+ on the reels. This is 2x your bet for 2, 5x for 3, 25x for 4 and a huge 500x for 5.
In addition to the coins, you’ll get free spins for 3+ scatters, at 10, 20 and 30 for 3, 4 and 5 respectively.
This free spins bonus is identical to the base game, with not even a change to the background graphics. The big appeal is that all of your wins will have a 3x multiplier attached. This is added after any 2x or 4x multipliers from the wilds, and can make for some big prizes at times.
Deep Forest Design
Trolls famously can’t stand direct sunlight, and the design of this slot is dark as well as wild to acknowledge that. Around the reels you’ll see twisted branches and some rocks, with a green logo up top. The symbols are large, giving an overall crowded feel. Each of the Trolls has a circle around it, and all of them are drawn with a lot of detail. For me the stand out is the baby troll, which has a cheeky grin and is playing with a bone. Playing card symbols are made from branches bound together. It can be hard to quickly see your wins (especially with the playing card symbols) at times.
Animations are minimal, and sounds are rattling and the occasional jingle – there are ambient forest type sounds between your spins.
You can play a maximum of 20 win lines (though this is adjustable), and select from coins per line or increase your coin size. The maximum prize per spin is listed as 120,000 coins!
This is a simple slot by the standards of Net Entertainment. During the base game only the 2x and 4x wilds add anything extra to the game. When these are combined with the 3x multiplier for the free spins game – you’ll have some potential for bigger wins. If you enjoy the wildlife or fantasy type slots, then why not take NetEnt’s Trolls for a spin?
