Classic slots are thought to be a niche nowadays although they feature persistently in the release maps of most developers. Trollpot 5000 by Swedish studio NetEnt is such an example bringing classic pay symbols onto a 3×3 reel set with multiplier wilds, a Nudge feature and three fixed jackpots that can lead to wins of up to 7,040 times your bet.
Trollpot 5000 is a video slot with three reels, three rows and one fixed pay line. Wins are awarded for three matching symbols on the pay line from left to right only. Playable on desktop or mobile devices, it comes with bet sizes from 0.02 to 200 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.19%, which is spread as follows – 86.97% for line wins, 4.69% for the mini, 1.56% for the midi and 2.98% for the mega jackpot.
There is little surprising on Trollpot 5000 when it comes to the visuals as you would expect it on a classic slot. A generic blue background is combined with a structured frame in the same colours and a simple game window with pay symbols dating back to the early fruit machines. The troll joker will be your wild symbol and key to scoring sizeable wins. The display with the three fixed jackpots on top of the reels serves as a constant reminder of the win potential. A pacey soundtrack rounds of the slot design.

The six pay symbols are in ascending order of value – bars, 4-leaf clovers, toadstools, a golden ornament, stars and red 7s. Hit three on the single pay line to win 0.5x to 10x your stake. The troll joker is the wild symbol, awarding as well 10x your bet when three land on the line. However, these are multiplier wilds, each marked with x2. One wild in a winning combo will multiply the win by x2, two will raise that to x4 and three wilds will multiply it by x8, which is taking the maximum win potential in a single spin without nudges to 80x your stake.
Trollpot 5000 Slot Features
If you ever played Grand Spinn from NetEnt then you will know what to expect as Trollpot 5000 is an exact clone down to the last digit of the RTP, features and maximum win potential of up to 7,040 times your bet. Chances to hit it have not changed either with odds at 1:1 billion spins. We’ve covered already the Multiplier Wilds which will multiply any wins by up to x8, so let’s take a look at the rest of the features.
Next in line is the Nudge feature which is triggered on every winning spin. If the symbol on top of the winning symbol on reel one is matching it, then the reel moves one position down, awarding the same win again. This repeats until there appears a different symbol on top. The nudges will continue then with reel two and reel three if there are as well matching symbols on top. The sequence ends when no more matching symbols appear on top of the winning symbols.
But there is more. Should an arrow symbol appear on top of the winning symbol, then the reels where the arrow is in view move to the bottom of the current winning symbol stack and then all nudges are repeated one more time. Remember, wins are paid again and again after each nudge.
For added spice, Grand Spin comes with three fixed jackpots – Mini at 40 coins, Midi at 200 coins and Mega at 10,000 coins – which can be won on any spin. In real money, that is 20x, 100x and 5,000x your bet. To win the jackpots, you will need to have jackpot symbols appearing on top of the pay line, be it at the end of a Nudge feature, on a winning or losing spin. If different symbols land, then the lowest jackpot is paid. Matching symbols will award the respective jackpot.
Well, to be honest, I have no clue why NetEnt is gracing us with an exact clone of a game that has not proven to be overly popular in the casino community. The progressive version called Grand Spinn Superpot has found way more fans and we expected to see that on Trollpot 5000 as well but disappointingly only the three fixed jackpots have been included. Whether that will thrill slot players remains to be seen.
