The 19-year-old has joined for an initial fee of £30,000 with Rovers ensuring a sell-on fee should the player move on from Bolton in the future.
Walters was tipped for a big future at Ewood Park, having captained their FA Youth Cup team and featured regularly for the Under-19 Academy side, but he was released by Rovers on disciplinary matters.
He had been told he would never play for Rovers again after being suspended by the club following an internal investigation into the disappearance of players' belongings.
Middlesbrough, Wolves and Stockport had all been interested in Walters but Trotters boss Sam Allardyce has moved quickly to bring him to The Reebok Stadium.
Allardyce has been impressed with Walters and he has given him the chance to get his career back on track.
