Enter the world of hilarious troll characters in a magical fairy-tale slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It will take you to a far-away castle where you have to conquer the bridge to gain entrance to the castle that holds the vast treasures the trolls have been accumulating and guarding for centuries.
Initially released on 12th June 2017 exclusively to the Betsson Group, Trolls Bridge was launched network-wide in January 2019. Two bonus features in the base game, a free spins round with extra reel modifiers and a Golden Bet option that allows one additional modifier pick can lead you to wins of up to 2,000x your stake.
Trolls Bridge is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Pays are awarded from left to right only. You can join the trolls on any desktop or mobile device from 0.20 to 200 credits. Activating the Golden Bet will cost you $0.25 to $250 per spin. Maximum win on a single spin is 500x stake for a full screen of the top paying troll symbol and the 2x multiplier in the Free Spins. The overall potential for an entire bonus round is of course higher.
The RTP of this medium variance game is an exact 96.00%, increasing to 96.30% when the Golden Bet option is activated. Autoplay will enable you to complete up to 1,000 consecutive spins without interruption.
Graphics and Visuals
Set in front of the to-be-conquered suspension bridge that leads to the treasure castle, the game evolves around four cartoon-style troll creatures, a bubbling cauldron with a green potion and that desired feature that grants entry to the castle. Expect the high standard for graphics and animations that Yggdrasil is known for. A quirky soundtrack completes yet another stunning slot creation from this provider.
Open the game to find at the low end four shields with card suits, followed by four hilarious troll characters at the high end. Pays for a single 5OAK range from 2.5x – 12.5x bet. The game has four Wild symbols, one regular appearing in both, the base game and Free Spins and three that are features that can be picked in the Free Spins. The bonus symbol is a bubbling cauldron appearing on reel 5 only. Scatters are a golden skull with the words “Free Spins” at the bottom.
The Golden Bet
Before starting your gaming session, you will have to decide whether to activate the bonus bet. This can be switched off or back on after any spin in the base game. The Golden Bet will increase the cost per spin by 25% and will allow you an additional pick for the extra features in the Free Spins. The minimum number of modifiers will thus be increased from three to four when the round is triggered by just three scatters.
While we are not big fans of extra bet options, we have to admit that for this game the Golden Bet makes sense as the one additional modifier can have quite an impact on the result of the free spins round. Plus, the cost is rather reasonable.
The Bonus Pot Feature
The first feature in the base game that can award extra coins wins or entry to the free spins is the Bonus Pot feature. Having the cauldron with the bubbling green potion land on any position on reel five will trigger the bonus game. You will be led to a second screen with nine bubbles that can contain 40 – 1,000 coins or 6, 8 and 10 Free Spins with 3, 4 and 5 feature picks respectively. The bubbles pop and disappear randomly until only one is left which will then be awarded.
The Random Bonus Stone Feature
The second feature is triggered randomly after a losing or winning spin. On losing spins the bonus stone can award a cash prize of up to 1,000 coins, potentially turning losing spins into a big win, while on winning spins the bonus stone can award x2 to x5 win multipliers for the current spin.
The Trolls Bridge Free Spins Feature
Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins mode. Alternatively, it can be awarded in the Bonus Pot feature. The game will lead to a second screen showing a choice 18 cards holding the possible extra features for the round. Based on the amount of scatters the game will award 6, 8 or 10 Free Spins with 3, 4 or 5 picks plus 1 additional pick if the Golden Bet was activated. The extra features are:
- 2 or 3 extra spins
- 1 or 2 random Wilds on each spin
- 1 sticky Wild on reels 2 to 4
- 1 Troll symbol becomes a Wild symbol
- 1 Troll symbol becomes super stacked
- x2 multiplier for the entire round
Players can now make their picks from the 18 cards to unveil the modifiers that will improve their chances to hit big wins in the free spins. The round will start automatically once all picks have been made.
After Betsson had this seriously funny slot exclusive for themselves for more than a year, all players can now try to conquer the suspension bridge to loot the vast treasures that are hidden in the castle. The gameplay is engaging, the features seem to trigger frequently and the win potential is high enough. We do recommend though some caution on the bet size as the game can be quite volatile at times.
