Casumo Casino has just added a brand new online slot release from Play’n Go titled Hugo, the slot is based on the famous animated troll which was most popular in the 1990s as a TV game show where players controlled Hugo via a phone in a platform-style game, things have progressed a long way and now we have a fully-fledged online slot featuring this character.
The Hugo online slot uses a regular 5×3 reel layout slot with 10 pay lines, with the main focus of this slot machine is to collect treasure and rescue his wife Hugoline from a variety of bonus rounds which include Free Spins with stacked scatters and a picking bonus round with up to 500x stake wins.
The base game features several special symbols which include a wild symbol (Hugo) with a 2x Multiplier, a Scatter symbol (Evil Witch Afskylia) and a special bonus Treasure Chest symbol for the picking bonus round.
Hugo Slot Bonus Rounds
There are two main bonus rounds that can be triggered from the base game, the first is triggered by the Treasure Chest scatter symbols that appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, and the free spins round which is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Evil With Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
Treasure Bonus Picking Round
Once triggered, Hugo is transported to a gold mine where you must try and reach the treasure chamber with being detected.
As you pick the various doors you will be rewarded with coin rewards, with a maximum win of 500x stake possible during this bonus.
If you keep picking rewards successfully you will progress through the mines but once you are detected by the Crocodile Henchman the bonus round ends.
Hugo Slot Free Spins Bonus Round
Once the bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Evil Witch Scatter symbols you are then presented with 3 different options for the free spins round, it’s also worth noting that an additional scatter will be heavily stacked on the reels during these free spins and you can also re-trigger the bonus round for additional free spins too.
The three options for the free spins are as follows,
- 5 Free Spins – extra scatter symbols pay 3x the total stake
- 10 Free Spins – extra scatter symbols pay 2x the total stake
- 15 Free Spins – extra scatter symbols pay 1x the total stake
Overall thoughts on the Hugo Slot
Remove the Hugo brand away from the slot, and you have a fairly average 10 line slot, there is nothing too groundbreaking in either of the bonus rounds, although the 500x stake reward is a pretty impressive win to be had in the picking round.
The slot graphics and sound are well done with some nice animations and Hugo popping up onto the screen if you stop spinning the reels for a short period, with an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.40% you should definitely have some decent playtime.
So whilst Hugo is a solid release from Play’n GO we definitely prefer their more innovative and unusual slots such as Gemix and Cloud Quest which truly bring something new to the table for online slots players.
