TrollPot 5000 Slot Review
Do you ever miss the authentic feel of a land-based casino? Had enough of all the complex features and flashy graphics on online video slots? Love the simplicity of just having 1 bet line and the thrill of landing a high jackpot? Then you’ll fall in love with this NetEnt game.
TrollPot 5000 takes us back to the days of simple slots at land-based casinos, giving the feeling of a classic slot through its simplistic presentation. You’ll see the familiar symbols that are synonymous with slot machines. Pots of gold will intermingle with shamrocks and 7’s, all vying for a chance to give you that winning combination you’ve been looking for. There’s something that feels so familiar about the sight of these dazzling symbols rolling onto your screen, showering you with diamonds and gems when you score that big win. The immersion is completed through the underlying soundtrack that perfectly emulates the memorable sound of classic slots.
TrollPot 5000 is compatible across both desktop and mobile devices, so you can join in the classic fun wherever you go.
So, what are you waiting for? Read on below to find out more about the features and functions that TrollPot 5000 has in store. We’ll delve into the main assets that stand out and deliver our verdict on this classical re-imagining. Who knows, this might be your next favourite NetEnt slot.
We mentioned that TrollPot 5000 takes us back to basics and in doing so it simplifies quite a lot. To begin with, it cuts down all bet lines, leaving us with just one. The middle line is the traditional bet line, where all of your winning combinations must land. If you’re lucky enough to manage one of these winning combinations, you’ll be in for a great surprise.
Any win on the reels will trigger the Nudge function. Once it is activated, the middle reel will remain in place, while the top reel will move one symbol down and the win will be awarded again. This only works if the top symbol on the first reel is the same as the winning symbol. The reels will carry on nudging until the symbol above the winning one is different. Once this happens, the process is then repeated for the second and eventually even the third reel.
When the reels finally stop nudging, there’s one more chance for you to bag in a couple more wins. At the end of a nudge, an up-arrow symbol may appear at the top of the reel. This will give you a second lease on the Nudge function, moving the reel down to the bottom of your current stack of winning symbols. All wins will be counted, and the reels will begin to nudge once more, paying once again for all positions starting from the top. This up-arrow function will only happen once for every Nudge though and will be replaced with a blank symbol after one use. Bear in mind that these very same blank symbols can appear anywhere on the reels and do not pay.
It’s a simple yet effective feature that can multiply any winning combination into a huge sum!
Wilds appear in most online casino slots and serve the noble cause of substituting symbols on the reels that can help get you a winning combination. They’re always a sight for sore eyes and can turn a disappointing near miss into an incredible win!
In TrollPot 5000, they serve the exact same purpose but with an added twist. Represented by the fool himself, these wild symbols now have multipliers attached to them as well. That’s right, a Multiplier Wild symbol on the winning bet line will multiply your win by 2. On top of that, additional Multiplier Wild symbols will increase the multiplier even further. 2 symbols will give you a x4 multiplier and 3 symbols will reward you with a stunning x8 multiplier. What’s not to love?
Jackpots. The holy grail of all slot machines and video slots. The ultimate prizes that can be awarded to any player lucky enough to land one of these bad boys.
Once all of your reels have shaken off the Nudge feature, Jackpot symbols have a chance to appear at the top of the reels. Should a Jackpot symbol appear on top of each reel on a winning stack, the corresponding jackpot will be awarded! There are three different types of jackpots available, each with their own unique names, symbols and rewards.
- The Mini Jackpot: A fixed Jackpot that awards a coin win of 40.
- The Midi Jackpot: A fixed Jackpot that awards a coin win of 200.
- The Mega Jackpot: A Jackpot that awards a coin win of 10,000.
It’s great to see such a loved slot feature make a return in this ode to traditional slot machines. We can’t wait to manage one of these bountiful prizes!
TrollPot 5000 Slot Verdict
There it is. TrollPot 5000 is a beautiful love letter to classic land-based casino slots. Its design may look too simplistic at first, but it achieves its goal spectacularly by immersing players into its theme, with familiar visuals and sounds that transport you back to your favourite land casino. It completes this nostalgic trip by utilizing fairly traditional features too. By sticking to the 1 bet line and simple functions that simply build on top of this base, it sets itself apart from other online casino slots. The inclusion of jackpots is also a welcome sight, adding even more thrill and suspense to every spin.
The only criticism we might mention would be that, despite the great way with which the traditional aspects have been implemented, it would have been interesting to see a few modern inclusions that could have been merged into the classical setting. A subtle merging of both worlds would have really been the best of both worlds, because as it stands, TrollPot 5000 may not be that appealing to players who are used to more robust features on their favourite slots.
With that having been said, TrollPot 5000 is a great online casino slot, one which impresses and succeeds in transporting you back to a different age in casino history. We loved the classical theme and we’re sure old school players will love it too.
So, if you’re looking to try out TrollPot 5000, check out our free demo above (upon launch) and see what you think. Unless you’d rather just go straight to the main game and play for real on one of NetEnt’s licensed casinos!
