This Hugo slot originates in Danish TV and worldwide video games back in the 1990’s, but will this 2016 casino spin revamp it’s renowned fame? Let’s find out.
A quirky looking Danish troll is the main character in this 5 reel, 10 payline video slot. His mission, and yours, is to help save his love Hugoline from the evil witch Afskylia, via various free spins games and click me bonuses.
What you’ll find is a video slot that’s quite simple to play, but one that might not be as friendly as the big eared, bug-eyed Hugo might have you think.
The theme is pretty uninspiring to be honest, and not half as beautiful as other Play’n GO fares, like the Grim Muerto slot, for example.
We get why they’ve done it, obviously to reflect the original TV game show, but you can’t help but feel that it looks a little dated. Unless, of course, you have nostalgia on your side.
The actual Hugo slot symbols are made up of the familiar A – 10 brightly coloured lower paying ones, along with golden nuggets, pick axes, dynamite, bags of gold, and a bonus treasure chests.
Basically everything you would think of when mining for gold rather than saving the love of your life.
A medium variance slot machine, this Play’n GO Hugo game comes with average base game wins that don’t quite keep your balance ticking over.
At least you have the wild symbol, represented as the main man himself Hugo, who helps create some bigger wins, thanks to it’s 2x multiplier on all wins.
However, it’s the pick me bonus game where you can win up to 500x your total bet that really catches your attention.
You’ll be searching for three of those gold filled treasure chest to show up across the five reels in order to fill your pocket and give your wallet a break.
Here you have to find your way through the maze of tunnels in the gold mine, picking the right doors to be rewarded with cash, and advancing through to the real treasure, much like in the Enchanted Crystals slot machine.
Pick wrong and Don Croco will kick your ass out of there faster than you can say Bug Eyed, Big Eared Troll.
This Hugo slot bonus feature is one that shows up more regularly than the free spins bonus, and you’ll be rewarded with 15x to 30x your bet more often than 500x… but it’s nice to know it’s possible each time you enter these caves.
That’s right, if you are lucky enough to trigger the free spins games by finding three or more of the evil, black haired witch Afskylia anywhere on the reels, you’ll get your choice of spins.
And by choice we mean you’ll get to pick from one of the following:
With stacked Hugoline symbols appearing only during the free spins, the chance at some decent wins are good.
We like to go safe and stick with the middle of the road option of 10 free spins, with every once in a while trying our your luck with 5 free spins and those higher paying symbols.
We’ve only managed to get around 30x our bet at most, though more is no doubt possible.
Just remember you will have to budget wisely if you want to actually trigger the free spin games, as this Hugo slot machine will easily take a good 200 plus base game spins to get there.
With a 96.4% return to player rate you’d think the wins would come easily, but you will have to budget to catch those bigger bonus game wins.
A betting range of 0.10 up to 100 per spin makes it easily affordable for every kind of slots player who wants to give this casino slot a go.
With it’s heydays back in the 1990’s, this Huge slot machine might not have travelled well into 2016, but is still worth a spin if you are feeling nostalgic.
Especially as the slot features reminds us of the popular Enchanted Crystals or Wild Blood slot, and certainly fun to play.Play Now at Leo Vegas »
