Trolls Tale

Troll's Tale is one of the newest and most technically advanced of Nektan's online slots, and it's inspired by characters from all of your favourite fairytales such as the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella, Pinocchio, and Puss in Boots, as well as a friendly troll who's more akin to the loveable DreamWorks star Shrek than the mean troll that appears in Three Billy Goats Gruff.


It's a five-reel, twenty payline game that you can play on mobile devices and desktops with a minimum of 20p and up to £20. Each of the star characters has the power to trigger a special feature such as sticky wilds, free spins, wild substitutions, and the bonus game. Plus, the most you can win while playing the slot is a mouth-watering two thousand times your bet!

More about the Software Provider

Nektan is known for two key things in the online casino industry. As far as operators go, Nektan makes one of the easiest to use and most mobile-friendly casino software platforms that allow brands like Samba Slots to offer players a flexible way to play online table games, scratch cards, and slot games. From a player's perspective, the company is a talented developer of online slots such as Cave Raiders HD, Candy Swap, Heroic – Eye of the Dragon, Magic Touch, and Pearl's Fortune.

Nektan was founded in 2011, and has its headquarters in Gibraltar where many other software providers and gambling operators are based, including Party Poker and 888 Holdings.

Appearance and Sound Effects

The colourful cartoon-style graphics that are used in Troll's Tale could almost be taken from a book of fairytales, as there's everything that a good fairytale needs including a grand castle, gingerbread men, trees with miniature doors carved into their trunks, an evil prince, and a hero – the troll. The story follows the troll and his friends as they try to prevent the prince from taking over their land, and you can see the troll standing to the left of the reels and the prince to the right of the reels.

An uplifting soundtrack featuring stringed instruments and harps is used to reinforce the fantasy theme, and it only plays when the reels are in motion. Once the reels start spinning, you'll begin to encounter the characters and objects that can help you create winning combos. They include Pinocchio, the Troll, Puss in Boots, a donkey, a gingerbread man, the Troll's Tale logo, playing card symbols, and the Fairy Godmother.

Bonuses and Special Features

Troll's Tale comes with a wild symbol and three fun bonus features.

Puss in Boots is the wild, and he can substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbol to help you land prizes.

Pinocchio triggers the Free Spins Feature when he appears three times anywhere on the reels, and awards a random number of free games.

The Troll is the bonus symbol, and if he lands three times on the reels on the same spin, he triggers the Troll's Tale bonus game. The bonus game loads a new screen which features a six-by-five grid of boxes. You get to choose one box from each of the five rows, and the aim is to find as many instant wins as possible. However, if you reveal a soldier symbol, the feature ends.

The Fairy Godmother is another special character that adds a minimum of three and a maximum of five wild symbols to the reels at random. Each wild acts as a sticky wild for as many spins as is indicated on the individual symbol.

Paylines/Reels

Troll's Tale uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty non-fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.01%. The game lets you create winning combinations using matching symbols in succession from the Reel 1 to Reel 5.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
