Those who were growing up watching and playing with the friendly three-toed troll Hugo will have now been old enough to have a pop at the brand new slot game revolving around one of their favourite childhood programs.
Hugo enjoyed great success on global basis and we expect nothing less from the brand new 5-reel and 10-payline game.
If cool graphics and the subject itself is not enough to get you excited than rewarding features allowing you to win up to 500x your stake most certainly will.
Online world is perhaps the only part of the universe Hugo franchise has not sneaked in just yet and Play’n GO should be applauded for their vision and business predictability that have encouraged them to dwell into this daring endeavor of presenting the children’s character to the slot gaming world.
What We Love
Hugo slot game remains true to its original TV version from the 90s when game dynamics are concerned. It is good to see Hugo being more than a regular straightforward pokie.
Play’n Go have created a game that takes you through the mine tunnels and behind doors all the way into the treasure chamber and Evil Witch’s hideout as Hugo hurries to save his loved Hugoline.
You can help him escape the evil clutches of Don Croco and you will be in for some handsome rewards for your help. We simply love all the features to this game and its versatility.
Unlike most of the games that let you form a winning combination by notching at least three matching symbols, the Hugo video slot will let you win even if you have nothing more than just two Wild Hugo symbols and two Evil Witch Scatters anywhere on your reel.
Two of these are only active when you have no other winning combinations and this detail is quite nice actually when you stop to think about it as it increases your winning potential and also can boost your confidence after a string of empty spins.
We must say that we did not expect nothing from Play’n Go when it comes to visual appeal of the game. Impeccable graphics are true and true to the original, while the 3D feel adds a lot of depth into the whole game.
What We Do Not Like
Play’n Go have announced the game by boasting it brings 500,000 coins as the top prize for the most fortunate players. Still this jackpot is almost impossible to claim and it has to be noted that game’s rewards as not as lucrative as it may seem at first.
Knowing that you need to invest $100 as top bet it can be a bit frustrating to know that all you can hope for during the base game is a win worth 2,000 coins.
We all love Hugo even though he can be a bit annoying with his constant remarks and knockings on the screen, but playing for real money is all what this game is about and Play’n Go should have pushed their rewards higher up.
Every original theme and branded game should be given a try, even if you don’t like the concept, theme, rewards or anything else in a game for that matter.
Not that this is the case with Hugo, quite contrary as we are big fans of his. Play’n GO did a wonderful job to create a fitting tribute to this world-wide phenomenon from the 90s and all possible downsides aside.
It is a highly entertaining game that will take you on a trip down the memory lane when you were just kids watching this three-toed troll, or parents watching your kids watch this friendly little bugger.
