Hugo Slot Review
Hugo is a fun, humorous even, slot game by developer Play’n Go. It centers on a cartoonish theme and stars a friendly little troll, who goes by the name of Hugo. The reels have a wooden frame around them and are also see-through, so you can have a good look at the backdrop. It features the leafy greenery of a forest and right in the midst of it all – Hugo’s little home. The symbols on the reels feature the lower value playing card symbols, each in a separate color. They appear as bubble letters and include A, K, Q, J and 10. Following them are four symbols related to gold mining: a pickaxe, dynamite, a bag of gold and golden nugget.
As for the layout, it consists of 5 reels and 3 rows, with a total of 10 paylines. You are free to use the controls and regulate the number of paylines, as well as, of course, your bet amount. Thus, players can enjoy a flexible betting range of between 10p per spin and £100 per spin. The RTP here is 96.4%.
The Wild symbol in this slot game is Hugo himself. He also happens to be the highest paying symbol on the reels, offering payouts of up to 2,000 times your stake. In addition, it can also appear anywhere on the reels and replace any of the regular symbols to help create winning combinations. In addition, it will also double the payouts for the winning sequences it’s part of. However, there are two symbols it cannot substitute for: the Scatter and the Bonus symbols.
A treasure chest is the Bonus symbol in this game. It can appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you will be looking to land all three. This will trigger the Treasure Bonus feature, where you will need to choose from several doors. Each door will reward you a different cash prize.
The Scatter here is the evil witch Afskylia. You will notice that she will turn the reels dark as soon as she appears on them. Look out for her, because if you land 3 or more Scatter anywhere on the reels, this will activate the freespins feature. You will then have the opportunity to choose your exact freespins bonus. The possible options include 5 freespins, during which each extra Scatter symbol will pay 3x your stake. Alternatively, you can play with 10 freespins and receive 2x your stake for each additional Scatter. Last but not least, you can receive 15 freespins and then the extra Scatters will pay 1 time your stake.
Hugo is a fun and entertaining slot game that has a pleasant variety in bonus features. The potential of scoring a maximum of 1000 times stake max win also certainly adds to the slot game’s general appeal, but the big wins in this game are few and far between in our experience. We would lable it as a medium variance slot and the RTP is decent at 96.40%. In the long run the more advanced slot players may find it a bit boring, but it could be a good slot for wagering purposes. The fact that you can select the amount of free spins you prefer in the free spins feature is something we like. If you prefer the low variance option you should pick the 15 free spins, which will almost guarantee you a win of some sort. If you like to take a gamble, you should select the 5 free spins and hope for a big win.
