Troll Hunters Slot
Troll Hunters is a video slot with a Nordic theme released by Play’n GO in 2013. Despite its age, the slot still pulls off high-quality graphics and smooth animations for an immersive gameplay as we join three shield-maidens on their troll-hunting quests.
The game utilizes a 5×5 grid layout with tumbling reels and cluster pays. Troll Hunters slot comes with an RTP of 84.69% – 96.69% and falls into the medium-variance category in terms of payouts, with a max win of 10,000x total bet size.
How to Play
Troll Hunters offers five bet sizes: 0.2, 1, 2, 10, and 40. Once you’ve selected your bet, you can enable Autoplay, if that’s your preferred mode, and just hit Spin. There are no paylines to enable as the slot pays in clusters, meaning that winning combinations are formed by three or more symbols in a row, horizontally or vertically. The symbols that have formed the winning cluster are removed and new ones are dropped in their place. Each new drop increases the win multiplier that you see next to the grid.
The biggest payouts come from the three troll hunters themselves, with the blonde warrior bringing in up to 1,000. The rest of the symbols include different items such as mutton legs, beer mugs, and even earrings because these troll hunters are well nourished, fierce, and fabulous. A golden rune symbol is the wild which replaces all other symbols and pays up to 20,000. It appears only in the base game. The biggest payout is 40,000 (or 10,000x max bet) for clearing the entire grid.
As you play Troll Hunters, you will notice that for every spin the letters B – O – N – U – S styled as runes appear randomly on the reels. When you manage to get them to spell out the word “BONUS” in one or more columns, you will unlock the Troll Hunters slot’s free spins feature.
It starts off at 10 free games and is played on a new grid, with different symbols and a troll staring menacingly at the background. During the free spins, clusters of at least five symbols bring the prizes and five or more troll symbols will award additional free games, up to a maximum of 20.
Troll Hunters picks up somewhat slowly as there is not a lot of action in the base game except for waiting to spell out the bonus word and keeping track on the multiplier. It’s got some innovative features like the cluster pays and the added wild after a winning cluster has been cleared but it’s definitely not the most dynamic slot you can try. It is likely to appeal to players who would like to explore a new mechanic but stick to familiar features like wilds and free spins.
