12 Trojan Mysteries Slot Theme
12 Trojan Mysteries have you embarking on an epic adventure based on the infamous Battle of Troy and the Trojan war. The Trojan War was waged against troy by Achaeans after the abduction of Queen Helen of Sparta by the Trojan Prince Paris.
The Trojan Horse itself became infamous after Greek Soldiers were able to use it to take the city of Troy after a ten-year siege by hiding within it.
4ThePlayer often have a captivating storyline to go with their chosen theme, and visuals to match.
The design quality of 12 Trojan Mysteries is great, and the sound effects of a battle really gives substance to the overall theme.

12 Trojan Mysteries also welcomes the return of 4ThePlayer’s Big Portrait Mode. When playing on mobile, you can toggle between classic small reels or Big Reel portrait mode.
This has been seen before in some of their other slots. In this mode, reels will spin left to right and pay top to bottom instead. Payouts and features remain unchanged. The Big Portrait mode can be a little disorientating at first, but you soon get used to it if you give it a chance.
