Yggdrasil’s Trolls Bridge 2 Slot coming exclusively to Betsson.
We all know the story of the three billy goats
gruff and the nasty troll who threatened to eat them if they crossed
his bridge. The creative design crew over at Yggdrasil know this
Norwegian folk tale better than anyone. In January 2019, they
released a Trolls
Bridge Slot loosely themed around that story, and it became
an instant brand favorite at Yggdrasil powered online casinos.
That success must have got their gears
spinning, because it didn’t take long for them to head back to the
drawing board. Now, barely half a year later, Yggdrasil is launching
a second edition, Trolls Bridge II, and this time, thanks to an
exclusivity contract, only members of Betsson-brand online casinos
will have access to it.
Yggdrasil’s Trolls Bridge 2 Slot
This review isn’t going to cover every single aspect of the new Trolls Bridge II online slot machine – not because it isn’t worthy, but because I simply don’t have that kind of time! Yggdrasil’s design team infused this game with more features than any title before it. With that said, let’s take a quick, cursory glance under the hood.
The new version increases the reels from 5×3 to
5×4, and the paylines from 20 to 25 fixed ways to line up a winning
combo. If you look close, the entire reel grid is actually the draw
bridge of a dark and foreboding castle. The object of the game isn’t
just to line up wins, but to open the gate, triggering the game’s
free spins, wherein lies a dozen features that can be activated.
There are only 8 standard symbols in the game.
The higher paying variety are warrior trolls of various shapes and
sizes. The lower ones are the usual playing card suits. Those trolls
can appear as colossal symbols at any time, spanning up to 2×4
In addition to those are four different wild
symbols. The Regular Wild can appear in the base game or bonus game,
doing the usual job of replacing other standard symbols to help
create a win. The Troll Wild appears during free games, turning one
of the trolls into an extra wild symbol. The Random Wild also appears
in free games only, turning one random symbol, high or low, into a
wild for the duration of the feature. The Colossal Wild, again
appearing only in free games, spans 2×2 and 2×4 positions to
instigate huge wins.
Those last three wilds are all potential
‘Feature Picks’ that can trigger when free games are triggered.
Trolls Bridge II Feature Picks
To trigger them, players need to see at least 3
Free Spins troll skulls land on the reels in any position. The more
scatters that trigger the bonus, the more spins and feature picks the
player gets, as follows:
3 Scatters awards 6 free spins with 3 feature
4 Scatters awards 8 free spins with 4 feature
5 Scatters awards 10 free spins with 5 feature
Players also have the option to wager 10
additional coins per spin to gain +1 feature pick if and when free
spins are triggered. There are a dozen different feature picks that
can be activated, including the three feature wilds detailed above,
along with a variety of other things that all have great potential to
produce big wins.
The Bonus Cauldron, for example, can appear on the last reel, churning out two additional feature picks. It can also land in the base game, with random effects that can range from nothing at all, up to paying out 1250 coins.
The new Trolls Bridge 2 Slot comes equipped with a 96.7% RTP, medium variance, and a max single-spin payout of 350,000 coins. Released in July 2019, you’ll find it exclusively at Betsson casinos.
