A bright colourful game, Troll’s Tale mobile slot is a fairytale of a game, with Pinocchio, a wide eyed donkey and puss in boots.. wait a minute…
Yeap, this is basically a Shrek rip-off. And don’t say otherwise, in the online slot it even tells you about how the troll (cough…ogre…cough) is defending his land against an evil king. Sound familiar?
That said, it’s actually a really good looking mobile slot game, it reminded us a little of the Enchanted Crystals slot. When you load this iOS / Android slot, you’ll think this is a far larger game than it actually is – but Trolls Tale slot is a simple 3×5 reels with 20 paylines.
Nektan Gaming has created the illusion of a larger slot by showing you the symbols just before and just after the paylines.
And with the colourful colours and, granted, the rather funny Troll celebrating every win, it certainly draws you in.
The thing to remember is that, much like its theme, Troll’s Tale isn’t about the big hits, or the big wins. It’s a light airy slot with a light airy theme.
Not to say you can’t get the occasional 50x your bet win to make things more exciting, but the bonus features are there to keep you spinning, rather than to get you to walk away with a ton of cash.
Take the click me feature for example. By far the hardest hitting of the bonus game, it hides a couple of 100x your bet wins which if hit, can be truly marvellous. Yet, at best, you end up walking away with about 15x your bet on most occasions, because that’s what this game is here to do.
Provide light entertainment, action on the reels with constant wilds and free spins, but rarely any huge hits.
Yet decent wins are there, hiding, making this a 3 star slot review for having the occasional hope. Our advice is that when you are up by about 20% on your budget, that’s where you’re happily ever after starts, and it’s time to try something new.
We recommend the Electric Sam slot for similar fun, and yes this is another Troll, but this one is original in both theme and features.

Wilds: The wild symbol is puss in boots and he appears often enough to make a difference. He replaces all other symbols except bonus.
Free Spins: Pinocchio is the free spin symbol and you'll need three to show up on screen to give you anything up to 10 free rounds.
With no multiplier, this feature is nice, but mostly for show.
Sticky Wild: If you get 3 fairy god mother symbols on screen, you'll get anything from 3 to 5 wild symbols on the reels.
Each will have a different counter, from 1 to 5, and will remain sticky on the reels for that number of spins.
Depending on positioning, and how many you get, this can give you a good 50x your bet, but are hard to catch.
Click Me Bonus: Three troll symbols anywhere on reels will start a click me bonus. You'll get a 5x5 grid, where you'll pick one symbol per row.
Under each of the symbol you'll get a multiplier on your overall bet (up to 100x) or a soldier. As soon as you hit the soldier, the round ends.
You might also like to play the Trolls Bridge slot from Yggdrasil Gaming.
Bright, fun, and colourful, you might not even notice that the Trolls Tale mobile slot borrowed it's theme.
The slots bonus features are plentiful, and so are the wins, even if those aren't always particularly bountiful. A couple of big multipliers would have given this mobile slot machine an extra star, as it's hard to feel you're ever that close from a huge win.
Yet with a decent betting range to suit all players, this slot should entertain most gamblers looking for some easy less risky spins, regardless of your budget.
