Often seen as a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore, it’s not a surprise Netent was inspired by this ugly cave-dwelling creature, knowing that the software company was founded by one of Scandinavia’s leading off-line casino operators. Although in old Norwegian sources, trolls are described as dwarfs dwelled in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, while rarely helpful to human beings. Later on in Norwegian folklore trolls where designated as ugly and slow-witted, but also as dangerous to human beings. In some Norwegian folklore trolls even have tails, several heads, while their size can vary from a few inches to several miles high with even trees, moss or other plants growing on them. There were mountain trolls, forest trolls and ocean trolls, or trolls associated with particular landmarks, which could explain why some trolls turn to stone upon being exposed to sunlight. However trolls are trolls, I can imagine it must have been a pleasure to design a video slot like Trolls. And may I say, the designers did a great job, portraying trolls in many different appearances, including trolls of all ages and sizes, from dangerous to gentle, from ugly to uhm well even more ugly, and from humorous to goofy. Don’t forget to have a look at the frame of the game, hiding even more type of trolls so well-known from the Scandinavian folklore.
I have to admit I liked Trolls straight from the beginning, but maybe that has something to do with the troll doll hype from the 90’s, also known as Dam doll. Yes, I had trolls too, with furry hair in all colours. Such a useless gadget, I know, but what can I say, I wasn’t even a teenager yet. So I guess I’m off the hook right? Based on the sounds used behind this video slot, including the tranquilising sounds of birds and nature, I assume you’re looking at forest trolls, also reinforced by the magical forest these trolls live in, the wooden letter symbols, the trees, their branches and leaves, meandering through the game.
Just as there are many different trolls present in this Netent video slot, there are also a numerous of betting options available. Starting from 0.01 up to 80.00, there’s no chance you won’t find a bet that fits your budget, unless of course you’re one of these high rollers looking for bets over 200.00 like in Jack Hammer, Space Wars and Simsalabim. In that case trolls won’t be for you, but if you’re an average player, I’m sure you feel comfortable playing Trolls. You can either start with one bet line, but this won’t bring any dynamism to the game, the reason why I recommend you to play with all 20 bet lines activated. This means a 0.20 minimum bet will be the case, although this bet can easily be adjusted when you would like to bring some more excitement to the game. Use the 4 bet levels and seven different coin values wisely to bring more winnings into your account.
Even though it’s not hard to see Trolls is one of the older titles offered in a Netent Casino, its bringing you more than similar designed video slots like Viking’s Treasure and Excalibur. There are two Wild symbols for example, including the regular Wild symbol, substituting for any other symbol in this video slot, except Scatters. Besides that this a Wild symbol also multiplies prizes x2 when it participates in a winning combination and if not enough already there’s an extra Multiplier attached to it up to x10.000. If not amazing enough yet, Netent also added a Golden Wild symbol which appears on reel 3 only, but has an amazing x4 Multiplier attached to it. Both appear quite often whereby your winning odds will be significantly improved.
Also the amount of Free Spins is much higher than in similar Netent video slots, offering up to 30 Free Spins. Two or more Scatters triggers Scatter wins, while 3+ Scatters activate the Free Spins feature. For three of them you get 10 Free Spins, for four you are awarded with 20 free games, and for five allows you to spin the reels 30 times without any costs. It’s also worth mentioning that all the prizes won during Free Spins will be multiplied x3. Scatter wins start with tour total bet doubled when two Scatters appear, while five of them multiplies your total bet with 500(!). Do I need to say more?
