Quirky Hugo is a troll of Scandinavian folklore, developed by a Danish TV company back in the 90’s. Now a huge international media franchise, Hugo has even got his own online slots game. It’s a 5 reel, 3 row, cartoon-style game created by innovative gaming producers Play N’ Go. The game is set within a Scandinavian troll forest and regularly has Hugo popping up to interact with players. He’s endearing and he’s also offering us the chance to win a huge 500,000 coins with a couple of bonus features. Read on to discover more about this top-notch new game from Play N’ Go.
The reels of Hugo display imagery synonymous with the show; you’ll spot characters throughout the main game and bonus games. There’s a golden nugget, a sack of gold, some dynamite and a pickaxe, as well as playing card symbols from Ace to 10.
The star of the show, Hugo himself is the wild character and will very generously double any wins that he helps to create. Hugo also substitutes all other symbols except for the scatter and bonus. Hugoline – the female troll – also appears within the free spins bonus.
If you’ve ever seen Hugo the TV show, you might remember Scylla the Evil Witch who holds a grudge against trolls. She features here as the scatter symbol and the key to free spins. There’s also a bonus symbol which is glistening red treasure chest; this leads to the bonus game.
Landing 3 or more of Scylla the Evil Witch will actually bring you some good luck – the start of the free spins bonus round with added Hugoline symbols. Choose your number of free spins to begin:
- 5 free spins with each Hugoline symbol paying 150 coins
- 10 free spins with each Hugoline symbols paying 100 coins
- 15 free spins with each Hugoline paying 50 coins
The aim is to save Hugoline from Scylla and luckily for players, and therefore it is lucky that her symbol appears quite frequently (in our experience). Hence, this can lead to quite a rewarding free spins game.
There’s a second bonus game – players should be pleased to know – which is triggerable by 3 or more treasure chest bonus symbols. Find your way through the dangerous gold mine in order to reach the treasure chamber but be on your guard, as stumbling across Don Croco and your game will be over.
A thoroughly playable, amusing game with fabulous little quirks and a couple of entertaining bonus games to keep you entertained; this one’s definitely worth checking out.
