I like trolls and a bit like late-night kebabs and Kevin Costner movies, I don’t think they deserve the bad reputation they get.
I doubt you’ve seen a slot like this before
If there’s one thing I always reward when reviewing casino slots for G2G, it’s originality.
Standing out from the crowd (if there is such a thing as a crowd of slots), going out of your way to be different and taking a few risks to offer something fresh are invaluable qualities.
And Play n’ Go have achieved that with Troll Hunters. A few of the video slots we’ve tried out over the past few weeks have been a little ‘samey’ so it was great to be surprised.
Let’s go through what made this slot stand out to us.

A video slot with Play n Go’s signature on it
We suspected we might enjoy this game when we remembered that it was Play n’ Go who brought us 7 Sins and Book of Dead. That was one of my absolute favourites amongst games I’ve tried out of all my slot reviews here at G2G. I’m eagerly awaiting another slot to review from the Swedish-based slots supplier.
Other games of theirs that you might be familiar with include ‘Cats and Cash’ and ‘Jazz of New Orleans’. A quick trial of some of their games, not to mention the names of the games, shows that fun and humour are top priorities for them when they go about casino slots.
Another of their big priorities is making games that are as good on mobile as they are on a desktop. We know that for two reasons.
- They say so on their website and
- It’s obvious when you try them out.
Girl power and the increasing multipliers
Long before a troll was someone who gave you a hard time on Social Media, it was something completely different. More precisely, it was a pretty ugly creature that was somewhere between a human and a monster and generally lived in a cave.
So a bit like Osama bin-Laden, but without the beard.
Mentions of trolls can be found in lots of children’s stories and the reason for them being there was to act as a scary character that would give children nightmares when they heard about them in bedtime stories. Some parents, eh?
But I like trolls and a bit like similar to late-night food and Kevin Costner movies, I don’t think they deserve the somewhat bad reputation they get. To be brutally honest, I hope the Troll Hunters don’t hunt the Troll in this game.
There are three different Troll Hunters – all female (in case you were wondering if Troll Hunting was more of a man’s profession) and they’re the highest-paying symbols. In addition to appearing as symbols on the reels, these characters also take turns to stand to the right of the reels, almost guarding them.
Other (lower paying symbols) include the single earring, the double earring, the skull mug, the double skull mug and a…big chunk of meat.
Yes, you read that right.
There’s a gold square with a triple triangle in it which acts as the Wild. There are no Scatters in this game which is a bit unusual but hey, that’s fine by me.
One of the unique features of this 5×5 slot is that you don’t need to get symbols in a horizontal row on the middle reel. You’ll get a win if you get three or more matching symbols anywhere (with the help of the Wild if necessary) horizontally or vertically, but not diagonally.
When you get a win, all the symbols that made up the win disappear and are replaced by new ones meaning you can get numerous wins in a row from just one spin. If you look to the left, you’ll see that if you get a second win it will cause the Multiplier to increase to 2x, a third win puts it up to 3x ahead of the next spin. And so on.
The Trolls can re-trigger the Free spins feature
So if there isn’t a Scatter symbol that means there isn’t a bonus feature, right?
At the start of each spin and before the reels are filled with symbols, one or more columns will have the word ‘Bonus’ spelt out from top to bottom.
Free spins feature
If as a result of several winning spins in a row, all the letters of the word are revealed on any column, you’ll activate the 10 free spins. So it goes without saying that if several columns display the word Bonus before you spin, the chances of activating the free spins are greater.
In the free spins round, the three Troll Hunters are replaced by the Troll to the right of the reels. Click Spin and you’re good to go.
The three Troll Hunters remain as symbols in the free spins round but interestingly, two of them have different facial expressions to what they had in the base game. None of the other symbols from the base game are there and are instead replaced by new symbols. Such as a shield, an axe, a helmet and other apparatus you’d expect a Troll Hunter to carry or wear.
Wins are secured in this round by getting five or more of the same symbol anywhere on the reels though sadly the Wild symbol isn’t in play during this round. Similar to the base game, the more wins in a row, the bigger the Multiplier.
If you’re lucky enough to get to get five or more Troll symbols, you’ll activate more free spins up to a maximum of 20.
Clearing the screen
This isn’t an actual feature as such but I decided to treat it as such.
Sometimes I’m just like that.
If as a result of disappearing symbols caused by lots and lots of wins in a row, you clear every symbol on the reels, you’ll win 500x your stake. It obviously doesn’t happen that often but it can happen.
Just like Justin Bieber can be an ok, guy sometimes. OK, bad example…
The Trolls are fun-filled rather than cash-filled
You know when you try out a particular of food for the first time and you just love it? Maybe sushi, for example. It’s great but then you keep on eating it and eating it and then reach a point where you’ve kind of had enough.
Well, Troll Hunters is a bit like that. A load of fun to start with but a slight lack of different features, it might be that you get a little bored after a few hours.
Another slight issue is that the wins in the base game seem to be pretty small. Even numerous wins in a row don’t really allow you to win anything too big. it’s only a really good run on the free spins that give your bank a big boost.
But none of that stops this being a fun slot with quirky characteristics and as we said to start with, it’s nothing if not different. It’s one to enjoy rather than one that promises any huge riches.
