Sometimes simple works really well and that certainly appears to fit the bill with NetEnt’s Trollpot 5000 slot game. The developer have produced a game that looks as though it has simply been lifted from an Arcade game and been made widely available online.
We had plenty of fun conducting our Trollpot 5000 game review as the Irish themes NetEnt appear to be following certainly made it all the more entertaining and enjoyable.
As mentioned, simplicity appears to be the key for NetEnt with their Trollpot 5000 online slot and right from the beginning this desire appears to have been achieved. This game follows a 3-reel format and features just one payline. Players just have to match three symbols in the middle row to form a win! Bets can be made from as little as $0.02 a spin but can go as high as $70.
Quickspin and autoplay features are also available for players who want to customise their gameplay experience to suit their needs. Sometimes reels can feel as though they take forever to go through the motions, therefore the ‘quickspin’ button can come in handy. For those that find clicking the ‘spin’ button every time a little tedious, then the ‘autoplay’ button can be a great tool.
The Irish theme that NetEnt appear to have gone for can be highlighted by the symbols that have been used in the game, with Trollpot 5000 combining it with some of the classic symbols to be found in arcade versions of such slot games. BAR (which is the lowest-paying icon), Shamrock, Mushrooms, a Celtic Symbol, a Star and the Sevens are the symbols that are available.
Other icons in the game to keep an eye out for include the game’s Wild and Scatter – both of which can also be found in the Trollpot 5000 Free Play version above. The Wild is the little troll joker, whereas the Scatter is represented by the jewel (which has the ability to nudge), and the Jackpot Scatters are the pots with green, red and blue accents.
Whilst we were disappointed to learn that there were no free spins in this game, Trollpot 5000 slot game does still have a plethora of bonus features that make it a great game to play!
As mentioned in the previous section, the jewel Scatter has the ability to perform a nudging motion. When the symbol lands on the reels, the reel will nudge in a backwards and forwards motion and will collect wins from other matching icons that are on the reels. This feature could then provide bettors with some big wins!
There are also multipliers available on the reels, which can boost the potential winnings even further. They also stack, therefore providing the possibility of huge winning combinations. One is worth 2x the original bet, whereas two icons is equal to 4x as three is equal to 8x the original stake.
As mentioned in the Gameplay section, Trollpot 5000 has Scatter symbols that can trigger a jackpot game. The mini jackpot is worth 20x the bet, whereas the midi is worth 1,000x and the mega is worth a whopping 5,000x. If three of these appear once the reels have been nudged, players will be awarded with the lowest of the three to appear.
RTP (return to player)
NetEnt have produced a high volatility slot game with their Trollpot 5000 title, although it still has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.19%.
