Featuring five reels and 10 paylines, Hugo is a Play'n Go video slot that can be played from 10p to £100 per spin.
You would be forgiven for presuming the Hugo slot was based around the Martin Scorsese film of the same name. However, the game revolves around the life of a cute little troll named Hugo who was made famous on Danish television. Apparently this particular troll was a miner and the symbols include elements of his gear such as a pickaxe, some dynamite and a bag of gold. Hugo himself is the wild symbol and his enemy, the evil witch Scylla, is the scatter. There’s also a bonus symbol that takes the form of a treasure chest.
Landing three of these treasure chest symbols activates the bonus game. You’ll be taken to a new screen and presented with a number of doors inside the gold mine. You get to choose which doors to go through with the aim of reaching the room with the most treasure before being caught by the crocodile antagonist. Every door you successfully go through coughs up a cash prize but when the crocodile pops up the round ends and you are returned to the base game.
The free spins round is activated by getting three or more of the Scylla scatter symbols anywhere in view. Players are allowed to choose between three options: five free spins with a 3x multiplier whenever an extra scatter appears, 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier with an extra scatter or 15 free games with a 1x multiplier for an extra scatter. Free spins can be retriggered during the round.
Hugo has a quirky theme and is an entertaining game to play. There is plenty of player interaction to be had in the bonus rounds and the graphics and soundtrack are up to the high standard expected from a Play’n Go slot.
