A rugged Nordic scene with snow-capped mountains is in the background of the square game window. One of the three Viking ladies will stand on the right of the grid, ready to hunt the troll in the bonus round. Beautifully crafted pay symbols ornamented with Norse rune dominate on the reels. An equally rugged soundtrack completes the slot design.
Different symbols and payouts are in use in the base game and free spins. In the base game, they start at the low end with a range of Viking items – ham, single and double beer mugs and single and double earrings. Pays for five symbols range from 5x to 10x your bet. A combination of the double and single symbols will yield 2.5x bet for five. The premiums are the three Viking ladies, awarding 15x to 25x your stake, with the blond warrior being the most valuable. A rune icon is the wild symbol, only appearing in the middle position after a 3-of-a-kind is removed. Hit five to win a huge 500x your bet.
In the free spins round, the low-value symbols are exchanged for oil lamps, arm shields, helmets, warrior shields, swords, hammer and axes. Plus, the three ladies will appear enraged as they hunt down the troll. Hitting 10 or more scattered symbols will award wins from 75x to 175x your stake.
Troll Hunters Slot Features
Released in 2016, Troll Hunters was an early indication that Play’n GO is on its way to becoming a master for grid slots. They created an intense game with a humorous take on the Viking warrior ladies and gave it ample features and win potential to make it stand out from the crowd.
At the start of a game round, 25 symbols drop from the top onto the grid. Any winning combos will be removed and the remaining symbols drop down, potentially leading to more wins. When you get a win with three symbols, a wild symbol will appear in the middle location after the other two symbols are removed. It will only disappear from the grid if it forms part of a winning combo with four or five symbols on the following drops. After each winning cluster, the win multiplier displayed in the top left corner is increased by x1, no limits. No new symbols will cascade into the empty places as the aim of the game is to clear the grid, which will be rewarded with an extra win of 1,000 times your bet.
You will observe in the background the word BONUS being vertically shown on one to five reels. Clearing the reel, to unveil the entire word will trigger 10 Free Spins which can be retriggered. The round will have a win multiplier based on how many reels marked with BONUS have been cleared on the triggering spin. The maximum is x5 when you clear the entire grid and all five have BONUS on them.
The pay symbols and mechanics change for the duration of the feature. Wins are awarded for a minimum of five scattered symbols, all multiplied by the active multiplier. The top pays are for 10 or more symbols. The troll can land on any free spin with five awarding +5 free spins, up to a maximum of 20 free spins.
Norse-themed slots are mostly great games, filled with entertaining features, rugged warriors and good win potential. Troll Hunters fits well into that category, although Play’n GO made it even better when they released Troll Hunters 2 in 2019. Overall, great grid slot that can deliver sizeable wins at any time.
