Hugo is a name that became famous around the world back in the 1990’s when an adorable little troll was introduced as the main star of a Scandinavian TV show. Since then this character has been the star of many TV shows and quizzes around the world.
Today we finally have a chance to see his adventures on the reels of a video pokie game. In this game his mission is to find his way through the gold mines, avoiding the evil crocodile and save the love of his life, Hugoline, from the clutches of the evil witch Afskylia.
The designers of the game did a great job by giving the entire game an expected funny and cartoon look, but at the same time implementing an original game concept and interactive bonus features. With a fast game play, great animations and funky background music, Hugo will keep you entertained for very long sessions.
Hugo is the latest video pokie game coming from the great software provider Play N’ Go. We had a chance to see many new video pokie games from Play N’ Go the past few months and most of them are very popular among players today. We hope to see many new additions to their offer with the same high quality level in the future.
How to Play
Hugo is a video pokie game with a simple 10 pay line, 5 reel and 3 row design, which is common to most of the new Play N’ Go pokies. The bet levels can go from the minimum $0.10 to the maximum $100 per spin, so Hugo will catch the attention of both high and low roller players.
The bet size on this pokie can be adjusted by manipulating the coins number from 1-5 and the coin size from 0.01 to 2. The auto play option can be set to a maximum of 50 auto spins at a time.
The designers of Hugo managed to create an interesting set of bonus features by offering players the chance for both a cash pick bonus and a free spins feature. Also the wild symbol of the game (Hugo) substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and bonus, doubling a payout in winning combinations.
The bonus symbol of the game is a golden treasure chest and you need to land 3 of them on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the Gold Mine bonus round. Here you will need to make your way through the gold mine selecting doors that hide coin prizes and reach the treasure chamber.
But be careful as Don Croco is behind one door protecting the gold and if he finds you he will kick you out. The free spins bonus round is triggered when 3 or more scatters land anywhere on the reels. Once this happens you will need to choose between 3 free spins modes.
You can choose to play 15 free spins where each extra scatter symbol has a payout of 1x total bet, 10 free spins with 2 x total bet extra scatter payout and 5 free spins with 3x total bet extra scatter payout.
The extra scatter symbol during the free spins is Hugoline and she can come stacked across all reels. The free spins can also be re-triggered, awarding the same number of starting free spins.
Hugo is designed as a mid to high variance video pokie game. It is capable of producing big payouts up to 100,000 coins or 10,000 x total bet.
Play N’Go continues on their mission to launch top of the line video pokie games, with an interesting theme and bonus features. Hugo is definitely one of those games and the designers put in extra efforts to make every detail of the game attractive to the regular player.
They implemented good animations and graphic details with symbols based on a popular TV character so many players will be interested to see what Hugo the troll is up to this time. The bonus features are also attractive and it’s great that there are 2 separate bonus features.
The free spins round is interesting with the extra scatter payouts and the chance to win a full screen of extra scatters. We believe Hugo will get a lot of fans in a very short time over the online gambling community.
