The main character of the game stands to the right of the reels, hair and dress blowing in the breeze and her silver sword buried into the snow. Snowflakes drift around your screen and the wind howls past your ears. The 5×5 grid of symbols is situated high up in a mountainous area with the multiplier grid to the left and your paytable to the lower of the screen. If you are unsure of any of the rules of the game, the paytable will give you a good insight into the game. Use the pre-set betting options on the control panel to set your desired bet.
Symbols that can be found within this slot machine are; silver earrings, skull tankards, three female warriors, golden triangular emblem, axe, hammer, sword, shield, helmet, armoury, troll and a torch.

Hunt the Features
To start with, the biggest jackpot is awarded when you clear the grid – but how do you clear it? Well, it’s simple – every win that is triggered within the grid will vanish and golden emblems will push the symbols down – this process repeats every time you hit a win. While the wins add up on the left in the multiplier meter – the grid will empty of its symbols. Now, you have to do this with a single spin – so the chances of being able to do that are pretty slim.
Before every spin, random column(s) will be highlighted with the words ‘Bonus’ – if you can clear the whole column of 5 symbols that lay in front of this bonus text, you’ll be awarded the bonus game.
During the bonus, you will be awarded free spins. Trigger five or more trolls to get up to 20 additional free spins.
Every win triggered on the grid will multiply in the panel to the left of the screen, so the more wins your trigger – the bigger the multiplier you’ll receive.
Kudos to Play ‘n Go – we weren’t expecting a slot machine that offers something completely different to the norm. Troll Hunters is a specialised slot machine thanks to its layout. We found the slot to be a medium to high variance, which means the wins won’t fall often on the reels and the bonus game is a tough one to get your hands on.
While playing, the bonus didn’t trigger for us sadly, and we were playing a good hour at maximum stakes. If you have a bankroll that can withstand losses, there’s a huge jackpot waiting to be discovered.
