Way back in the 90s, a Danish television company produced a character called Hugo the Troll who is a little chap who has since gone on to star in a number of shows, magazines, and video games. Play’n Go has given new life to the beloved character, placing him front and center in his own online video slot that comes with two separate bonus features.
Hugo is a five-reel slot that features three rows and up to 10 paylines. Hugo pops out to have a quick word as the game starts and then, you’re ready to play on a wooden set of reels that are set against a backdrop of trees and undergrowth. There’s also some nice music to accompany you as you engage in the fine and seamless gameplay.
Before Hugo takes you on an adventure to help him save his wife and children form the hands of the evil witch Afskylia, you must first need to set your bets. By hitting Coin Value, Coins and Lines buttons you will be able to form the total bet.
Autoplay sets the reels in motion for the selected number of times without any interruption. Bet Max sets the highest bet allowed with only one button press, and it spins the reels automatically at that bet. Once you choose your bets, you would get the reels in motion by hitting the Spin button.
Hugo is a well-designed game and it particularly is obvious in how smoothly the game runs and how many bonuses there are loaded into it. The whimsical soundtrack may give off the wrong impression, but don’t let it get you off track. This particular game developer has managed to piece together a slot machine game that is bound to impress players of all levels. If you loved Hugo, or even if you have never heard of the character, you must still give this slot a spin!
The four high-value symbols are Hugo’s mining equipment including a gold nugget, a bag of gold, some sticks of explosive and a pickaxe. The lower values are the standard 10, J, Q, K and A. Hugo himself is the wild symbol and he’ll substitute for all others except the scatter (Scylla the witch) and the bonus treasure chest icons.
This is triggered by landing three of the Scylla scatter symbols anywhere in view and you will now get to choose one of three options:
Landing three more scatter symbols would award the number of spins you picked the first time. During this round, there’s an extra Hugo scatter that can appear stacked on all reels.
This is a picking round initiated by landing three of the treasure chest bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five. You now get to work your way through different levels of the gold mine to try and locate the treasure chests. Each successful pick wins money and progression but if you come across Don Croco, the round is over.
