Trolls may not look much, but they sure know how to fight! The Troll fortress is protected by a large drawbridge and make no mistake – it is filled with treasure! This is a review of the “Trolls Bridge” video slot by Yggdrasil Gaming.
The birthplace of Trolls is in the north, in the land of the fjords, mountains that look like petrified sea waves, and sea waves that loom like mountains. These magic beings, threatening, hideous, powerful, and sometimes helpful come from Norse mythology. Originally, they were the adversaries of the Norse gods, solitary powerful beings wielding ancient magic.
In the 19th century trolls were introduced to the English lovers of folklore as Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Engebretsen Moe published their collection of Norwegian Folktales. Since then, trolls have served as the ultimate bad guys as well as provided comic relief in multiple books, movies, animations, and, of course, video games. These characters have been known to live under the bridges and demand a toll from those trying to cross. However, the “Trolls Bridge” video slot interprets the troll + bridge connection in an entirely different way. This time, the trolls have hidden their gold in a fortress, and you need to break through the drawbridge to get in and lay your hands on the prize.
“Trolls Bridge” is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 paylines and an RTP of 97%.
The lower-paying symbols are the blue Diamonds (50x bet for 5 in a row), green Clubs (50x bet for 5 in a row), purple Spades (60x bet for 5 in a row), and red Hearts with a skull and crossed bones on top (75x bet for 5 in a row).
The higher-level symbols are the four Trolls, a merry comic gang of troll soldiers that are defending the drawbridge to the troll fortress and standing between you and the troll treasure. Mind you, the largest amount of loot that you can get from sacking this rickety fort is €250,000.
There four brands of Wild symbols. The Regular Wild pops up anywhere in the base game as well as in the Free Spins bonus game. The Sticky Wild can only appear on the 2-4 reels, and the Random Wild symbols are only there during the Free Spins. Look out for the elusive Troll Wild that can replace one type of Troll! The Wilds can substitute for any other symbol except for the Free Spins and Bonus Pot ones.
The Bonus Pot symbol can only land on the fifth reel. It can appear at any time and gives you the following prizes:
The Bonus Stone symbol is unpredictable, but when it gets triggered it brings the following awards with it:
The Free Spins bonus game gets triggered when three or more Free Spins symbols land on your reels.
Before you start spinning, you need to pick your bonus features from the 18 cards that hide them. Three special symbols will give you 6 Free Spins plus 3 Bonus features, four symbols fetch 8 Free Spins and 4 Bonus features, and for five symbols you will get 10 Free Spins plus 5 Bonus features on top of that.
The Bonus feature picks that are appear in the Free Spins bonus game are as follows:
You can activate the Golden Bet feature so that you get to pick an additional Bonus feature for your Free Spins game. This enhancement comes at a price of 5 additional coins per spin. You can switch it on or off at any time during the base game.
Like every other Yggdrasil video slot game, "Trolls Bridge" is eye candy. Its visual style is funny, cartoonish, bright but not motley, and full of little details that keep your eyes from being bored. The Trolls that you are battling seem are badass yet good-natured chaps, so the overall feeling is that of a friendly scuffle instead of a bloody war.
The screen is bright and busy; however, the gameplay is very simple in its structure. The main feature you want to keep your eyes open for is the Free Spins game. It can be triggered in different ways so that you have more chances of snatching the bonus. The maximum you can get is 820 times your bet, a jackpot worth fighting for! In addition to that, the game offers a multitude of smaller bonuses, so that you won’t feel that your time has been wasted even if you don’t achieve the highest score.
In Bitcasino, you can play this slot on the desktop, tablet, and mobile devices without losing the tiniest grain of quality, and the bets can be made in BTC, ETH or SOC.
