Swedish online casino games developer, Play’n GO, has announced the mass-market launch of Troll Hunters 2, the sequel to the hugely successful 2013 slot game Troll Hunters. The title was originally released in September 2019 with online operator Kindred Group plc who had exclusive rights to the game for nine months.
According to a September 25, 2019, press release, Troll Hunters 2 surpassed “€1 Million in bets shortly after being live for 24 hours and securing the title of most successful exclusive launch.” And was announced at the time by the Maltese online casino and sportsbook operator with a campaign bearing the hashtag #2019GameOfTheYear.
Played on a 5×5 grid, the latest in the Troll Hunters saga centers around a trio of fearsome women, the raven-haired Ylva, stoutly warrior Borghild, and the fearsome Astrid, whose mission is to protect their village against the ominous troll that has threatened their very existence for generations!
Each of the three characters in the game has its own unique bonus feature, and as part of the narrative, players are able to choose which one of them they prefer to play with. Also included in the game is Play’n GO‘s innovative Win Spin feature which is incorporated into its free games, guaranteeing players a win per Win Spin.
Commenting on the challenging process of creating a sequel, Chief Product Officer for Play’n GO, Martin Zettergren, used an official press release to say…
“There are many factors to consider when creating a sequel, or adding to a series of games. While you want to capture the familiarity of the original and keep the elements that made it successful in the first place, you can’t simply retread old ground and expect the same results.
We’ve always maintained that we only revisit titles when we feel we can bring a new dimension to what’s gone before, and Troll Hunters 2 is a perfect example.”
The new video slot is a further example of the Växjö-headquartered developer adding a new dimension to characters that players are already familiar with and using the story to entertain and tie titles together as creatively done with the Egyptian and Rich Wilde series. While similar aesthetically to the original, the sequel builds on the success of Troll Hunters with improved 3D artwork, a powerful fantasy soundtrack as well as new, innovative bonus features, elevating gameplay.
The high volatility video slot that has a return to player (RTP) of 96.50 percent and a 5,000x max payout is now available market-wide.
