How to Play It
Troll Hunters is not an ordinary slot machine, as it features an innovative way to deliver payouts. There are no classic paying lines, but rather groupings of matched symbols.
Any grouping on the 5×5 reel grid formed by identical symbols positioned next to each other in all three directions (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) will be seen as winning combinations.
Symbols that constitute a win will explode and leave room for symbols to fall down from above and assume their new positions, all during a single spin. This gives you the opportunity to accomplish even more than one win per spin.
The symbols are all theme-related. You’ll encounter three brave and capable lady warriors, a blonde, a dark-haired beauty and a redhead, and they will pay largest sums. Other icons represent either weapons or Viking-related requisites. Wilds are no regular Wilds, let us tell you.
They appear in specific moments. In every matched grouping of three or more identical symbols, the middle one automatically becomes a Golden Rune Wild. It won’t disappear like other winning symbols, but stay on the reels and help create more winning combos.
We could say that the whole game of Troll Hunters is a big special feature. There isn’t a single game element that hasn’t been improved in some way.
The falling reels and the Wild feature could also be special features. We haven’t mentioned that every time a Wild forms a winning combo, the prize meter on the left will move up a level ready to multiply future wins.
There is also an interesting Bonus round which gets activated by clearing rows on the grid. There are letters B, O, N, U and S behind specific symbols. If they get cleared and form the word BONUS the extra round is triggered. Everything you win in the bonus game will be multiplied by whatever the prize meter is showing at that given moment.
Bets are predetermined in Troll Hunters. Spinners can choose from as little as $0.20 and bet as much as $40.00 per spin, with three other options in the middle ground.
Considering there are so many ways of obtaining a win, it won’t be hard for players to achieve their daily goals. The return to player rate shouldn’t be any less than 96.73%. However, the max payout for Troll Hunters is estimated to reach $40,000.
If you’re a fan of the ancient Nordic history and mythology, you will love Troll Hunters. All the more reason to love it is the unique and engaging gameplay. Troll Hunters has almost too many innovations to fit in a single virtual slot, and may be a bit too much for beginners.
But after a few spins it shouldn’t be that hard to catch all the subtle details that make this slot machine so great. From lovely, clear graphics, to unbelievable special features, Troll Hunters will amaze even the most experienced players.
