Troll Hunters Slot
The Troll Hunters cascading online slot immerses you in a time when gods and beasts roamed the earth and mighty Viking warriors raised arms and slew the beasts that tormented their lands. Don, your furs, grab your axe and raise a horn to Odin, tonight we hunt trolls!
Theme, Sounds and Symbols
The world of Troll Hunters Play'n GO online slot seems at odds with itself, and there are snow-covered peaks and lush green grass all making up a part of the same vista. This is what you often see in the Nordics, the frosty breath of winter and lush promise of new life side by side! Even the sound profile plays on this with the sound of a stinging cold wind punctuated by lively bird calls.
The 5x5 grid is designed to emulate a wall carved in stone, providing a safe and protected environment for the gameplay to occur. To the right of the grid, we are treated to a full-body portrait of the active Troll Hunter, in much the same way the circus folk are displayed in Golden Ticket! They are little more than window dressing, however, having no impact on the features or gameplay other than to keep the player's attention from straying.
The slot symbols themselves are a mix of Viking history, Viking mythology and general fantasy elements. The high-value symbols are made up of the three Viking heroines (covering the standard fantasy class tropes of a fighter, barbarian and rogue). The remaining symbols include Viking Jewellery, Skull Capped Mugs of mead and a haunch of Meat!
The Wild symbol is an interesting one. In modern Norwegian it is known as Valknut, meaning “knot of those fallen in battle”. The symbol appears throughout ancient Viking culture. However, its true meaning has been lost to time. It is considered to have a connection to Odin given it appears on many burial items, and Odin was said to ferry the souls of warriors into the afterlife.
The Scatter symbol is the face of the dreaded Troll! A clever touch was to have the bonus feature see the winning combination appear to the strike the troll, playing into the theme of Troll Hunter!
The Troll Hunter slot has been designed on Play’n GO’s hugely popular cascading reels engine. Upon connecting 3 or more matching symbols (either vertically or horizontally), those symbols will disappear, allowing the remaining symbols to cascade down.
What you will notice is that unlike other cascading slots, there are no new symbols to create additional winning combinations. This is because the activation trigger for the Free Spins round is uncovering the word Bonus hidden behind the reels.
With a 96.73% RTP the Troll Hunters jackpot of 10,000 coins is ready to be claimed by the warrior with the most stalwart heart! A sure way to maximise your return should you win this trophy is to be playing the maximum coin size of €40.00 per spin! If that is a little rich for your blood, you can also opt to play for either €10.00, €2.00, €1.00 or even €0.20 per spin.
Like an axe to the face, the Troll Hunter special features get right into the action and deliver results!
The Multiplier column on the left of the base game keeps a running tally of all your kills and winning combinations increase your win multiplier by x1. The more winning combinations you string together, the higher your chances at wealth and glory!
The golden Valknut symbol acts as the Wild symbol in the Troll Hunter online slot by completing all winning combinations. Since there is no Scatter symbol, it truly stands in the gap for all symbols.
Uncovering the word bonus in the base game grants you 10 free spins and launches the Bonus Rounds feature. This feature does not require you to match symbols in a predetermined pattern, but instead, you need to have 5 or more matching symbols on the board to receive a winning combination payout.
During the Bonus Rounds, a unique symbol appears on the reels, the Troll icon. Landing 5 or more Trolls on the reels during the Bonus Round will reward you with an additional 5 free games. This does cap out at 20 additional games per Bonus Round session.

CasinoWow Game Verdict
Troll Hunters is a fun slot with a few neat tricks up its sleeves and a theme that is very hot at the moment thanks to television series like Vikings and films like How To Train Your Dragon. That said once you’ve experienced the joy of beating up the Troll in the Bonus Round a few times there is really not much else to keep you playing.
Troll Hunters is a high volatility game, and with a very shallow feature pool, the play session that feels rewarding are few and far between.
