Join the warrior maidens in Troll Hunters slot!
If you’re a fan of Lagertha and her warrior maidens from the Vikings series, you’ll feel right at home with the crew of Troll Hunters.
This trio of formidable females is hunting trolls. We know what you’re thinking. Trolls aren’t generally associated with popular Viking depictions. We thought exactly the same thing. After a quick look through Wikipedia, we discovered trolls do apparently feature throughout Norse and Scandinavian mythology.
These beasts of legend are most often depicted as living in isolated mountainous regions and are generally… fond of human flesh?! Luckily, we have Play’n Go’s Troll Hunters standing guard to tackle these fearsome beasts.
The reels can not contain them!
The traditional three rows of reels weren’t enough to contain the fearsome Viking maidens of Troll Hunter. The solution? A unique 5×5 square slot layout.
The unique nature of this slot doesn’t stop at the number of rows. Instead of spinning reels, symbols simply drop down from the top of the screen. Any symbols involved in winning combinations are removed, allowing the remaining symbols to fall into their place, possibly triggering additional wins. It’s sort of like a Vikings-themed Candy Crush Saga game.
Adding to the slot’s theme is an animated Viking maiden standing guard next to the reels at all times. When three of the same character’s symbols line up vertically, horizontally or diagonally on the reels, they’ll be substituted in for their turn at guard duty. This doesn’t have any effect on your wins, but it does look cool.
Let the slots battle begin
This slot isn’t just beauty. It’s got brains too. When three of the same symbols line up vertically, horizontally or diagonally, the symbols are transformed into a wild symbol with the possibility of triggering additional wins. Each subsequent winning combination will add a 1x multiplier boosting your wins. The multiplier will reset when there are no more winning combinations.
But what about the troll we hear you thinking. As the symbols drop down, the reels will be cleared. If a reel with “bonus” behind it is completely cleared, you’ll unlock access to a second-screen free spins bonus game where you’ll come face to face with the troll. You will receive ten free spins, which are retriggered with the appearance of five or more troll symbols on the reels, up to a maximum of 20 free spins.
The brass tacks
You know the good stuff. Now we’ve got to get down to brass tacks. Troll Hunters has an impressive return to player rating (RTP) of 96%. The bet scale of between €0.20 and €15 gives you an easy point of entry to explore the slot while allowing you to bet the max without breaking the bank. It is a medium volatility slot that affords you the chance to win a not insignificant jackpot amount of more than €30,000 while still scoring regular wins. Troll Hunters is, to put it plainly, well balanced.
Troll Hunters is a treat for the eyes!
Three Viking bombshells and beautiful Scandinavian scenery, what more can you ask for?
In all seriousness, Troll Hunters is a treat for the eyes. The slot features fantastic animation with incredible detail. As we played the slot, we often found our focus drifting from the reels to the serene beauty of the backdrop, which always seemed to be alive with movement. It’s a slot that we managed to get lost in for far longer than we realised.
So, our opening statement still holds. If you’re a fan of Lagertha from Vikings, you’ll probably get a kick out of this one. And if you’re not? You should still check this one out.
