The single fixed payline and 3 reels are reminiscent of the veteran arcade machines, but with Trollpot 5000, the similarity ends right there. With up to 14 nudges per reel, this pokie takes on a life of its own when a winning combination falls into the bet line. Land 3 of a kind on any symbol and the auto nudge feature comes into play, with multiplier wilds and jackpot symbols available to boost wins.
How to Play Trollpot 5000
1. Launch Trollpot 5000 and press the Continue button. You'll be presented with 3 reels behind the Trollpot 5000 logo.
2. Customise your game settings. With the icon to the bottom right of your screen you can adjust your volume settings. Adjust your bet and coin value with the up and down arrows in the bottom left half of the screen. To speed up the spins and skip some of the animations, select the Quick Spin icon immediately to the right of the Spin button.
3. To configure your Autoplay settings, use the icon just to the left of the Spin button and select the number of rounds you want to play. Use the Advanced Settings to stop the Autoplay based on wins and cash limits.
4. To access information about the game, its rules and paytables, tap the menu icon to the bottom left of the screen. Values in the paytable correspond with the coin value you've selected.
Trollpot 5000 Graphics and Sound
NetEnt has gone for a bricks and mortar casino vibe with Trollpot 5000's design. Background music plays over a mixed hubbub of crowds and the sound of pokie machines paying out cash, with the hollow acoustics giving the impression of playing in a large, indoor space. Spotlights swing through a blue background and play over each of the reels as you play this video pokie and this adds to the visual charm. Even the sound effects to the reel spins have a slightly old-fashioned, mechanical sound to them, and there's real life cheering if you get a big win.
The game itself has a Celtic, fairytale feel, with lucky tokens such as four leaf clovers, pots of gold and red and white speckled toadstools among the symbols on its reels. However, in contrast to Pragmatic Play's Celtic Gold pokie where the Irish style soundtrack and drifting clouds immerse you directly into the Celtic theme, Trollpot 5000 feels like it's more about the old school experience of playing than the theme on the reels themselves.
Trollpot 5000 Features
There are three features to Trollpot 5000.
As the most frequent feature, nudges can bring you quick wins. A winning line automatically activates the nudge feature. If the symbol above the winning line on the left hand reel is the same or is a Wild, it will nudge down into the payline and make a new win. The auto-nudge repeats in this way until no winning symbols are left. If a blue arrow appears above the winning line, the reel will roll upwards to the bottom of the winning stack and restart the nudge sequence. Once the left reel is exhausted, the centre reel takes over, and after that, the right-hand reel.
These are the Jester symbols, and they act as Wilds, multiplying any line win by 2. Two Wilds on a winning row will multiply your win by 4. Three in the payline will give you 20x your coin value. When combined with the Nudge feature, they'll multiply your wins by 2, 4 or 8 times, which can boost your winnings significantly.
There are three levels of jackpot, Mini, Midi and Mega, and they'll pay out based on the lowest jackpot symbol showing. So for example, if you get two Mega Jackpots and one Mini Jackpot on the payline, then the prize will correspond to the Mini Jackpot win. Likewise, if you have a Mega Jackpot and two Midi Jackpots, you'll be paid the Midi prize.
Jackpots can also be won as a bonus on the Nudge feature. If, after all three reels have finished nudging, there are three Jackpot symbols on the top row, then the Jackpot prize is payable based on the same rules as the payline Jackpots.
While a single payline and no bonus games may not be everyone's cup of tea, there's a nostalgic feel to TrollPot 5000 that those who enjoy traditional pokies will appreciate. If Trollpot 5000 isn't for you, try checking out the wide variety of other NetEnt pokies that are available.
