A beautiful slot based around the Three Billy Goats Gruff fairytale, this Trip Trap Troll mobile slot teaches you about patience and waiting for a bigger payoff.
Which is ironic if you think about it because the original tale is all about a silly Troll who, instead of taking what was in front of him, waited too long and ended up with nothing.
That said, that could also easily happen to you here in this Trip Trap Troll slot game, so perhaps it’s not so stupid after all.
What we can’t complain about the theme though, this is a beautiful modern take on the tale, with the three billy goats dressed in modern clothes, and the bride cave of the troll set up with PlayStation and TV.
On every win the symbols will explode and more come tumbling down from above; giving you a mini-free go and a second chance at a win.
But unlike in Gonzo’s Quest game where successive wins give you multipliers, here it turns the three high paying symbols into wilds, helping create a chain reaction of wins.
So in fact, if you are a fan of Quickspin, you might recognise this set up as the same from their award-winning game Big Bad Wolf.
That’s because the Troll gets ready to cook the goats, and if you find a fire symbol on the fifth reel, it increases the temperature in his ‘hot tub’ otherwise known as a cooking pot.
Get enough and you get permanent wild goats symbols, more free spin, and eventually a 2x multiplier on all win.
Wanna know how easy it is to 1. trigger the free spins or 2. get those fire symbols. Hard. So goddamn hard.
This mobile casino slot suffers from the fact that, much like in the Rapunzels Tower slot, you have to jump through way too many hoops to get a multiplier that games like Thunderstruck by Microgaming or the new Agent Jane Blonde slot gives us as standard.
This Zonelock slot game is frustrating, you never feel like you get enough wins to turn enough goats wilds, and even the free spins don’t guarantee you’ll get much more than in the base game.
That said, the potential for decent wins is there, and it has a high return to player rate, meaning your wallet won’t crash and burn too quickly.
A low variance game that certainly teaches you the morality of patience, which is odd for the type, but not without some fun spins.

Avalanching Reels: Any winning symbols will explode and the rest of the symbols above the crash will fall down, with more coming from the top to fill the empty spaces.
This continues until no more wins have been had.
Wilds: The frog symbol is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the troll scatter.
Goats Go Wild: The Three Billgoat gruff will each turn into a wild symbol after each successive win from the avalanching reels.
The goats stay wild until no more wins are found.
Scatters and Free Spins: The Troll is the scatter symbol and 3 or more trigger 10 free spins.
Only this time you'll have a hot tub to the left of the reels and a thermometer. If a fire symbol appears on reel 5, you collect it and it increases the temperature of the hot tub.
Collect 3 for 2 extra spins and the medium goat staying wild. Collect 6 and the big goat now stays wild, you get 2 extra spins, and a 2x multiplier on all wins.
This Trip Trap Troll game is a fun, wonderful take on a fairytale that you don't see very often, making it feel fresh and modern.
It borrows heavily from past Quickspin fairytale slot games, however, which is no bad thing but doesn't always pick the best feature to mix into its gameplay.
Basically, this is a very frustrating video slot that pays out little and often.
It's frustrating because you always feel like you are just one or two symbols away from getting something truly stupendous, but it's never quite within reach.
Still, one good free spin round is all it will take to convert you to a long-term player and it does it using less bonus features than the Mirror Mirror NetEnt slot.
