Let the games begin on the reels of Hugo!
It is a bit strange to see the happy little troll on the reels of a video pokie game, since he was the main star of a TV show and is mainly a kids hero.
But the kids from the 1990s grew up and are old enough to gamble online so Hugo is a reminder of the good times we had as kids, watching the TV at home. The designers did a good job with this game.
It has the same 10 pay line design, with 5 reels and 3 rows that many other Play N Go pokies have, so Hugo is a perfect hit in their pokies collection. With bets going from $0.10 to $100 a spin everyone can afford to spin the reels of this great pokie and he can be very grateful in return for your attention, awarding payouts up to 100,000 coins.
In terms of bet this coin reward translates to a great 10,000 x total bet payout which adds a great dose of seriousness to the overall goofy game. The big payout potential Hugo has comes from the bonus round, where you can win either the free spins or the Gold Mine pick bonus.
The Gold Mine bonus is a quest through the dark gold mine corridors, where you need to avoid running into Don Croco, in order to reach the Chamber of Spins. The free spins are the last stage of Hugos quest for Hugoline, where you need to choose between the Don Croco, Hugo or Afskylia free spins mode.
You will get 15, 10 or 5 free spins, with x1, x2 or x3 total bet payout for each extra scatter that lands on the screen. The extra scatter symbol is Hugoline and she can land stacked across all reels, awarding even a full screen of Hugoline symbols in each spin.
What We love
Everything about Hugo is perfect and you can’t find anything not to love. The theme and the bonus rounds are great and you can really win big during the free spins.
It’s great that you have a choice between the free spins mode so it’s all up to you how much you want to risk and win at the same time. It’s also great that all wins with a Hugo Wild symbol involved are doubled in payout, which is a nice balance boost during base play.
We also love the fact that the free spins can be re-triggered, so with a bit of luck choosing the initial 5 free spins can turn into a much bigger number of played spins in the bonus round.
What we Do not Like
Not to like? You can’t find anything like that. Everyone loves Hugo and that’s a fact.
Of course Hugo is a game worth playing. It’s not just about the game theme and the excellent animations used to make our hero come to life.
It’s also about the high game variance and the potential to win big. With a 10,000 x total stake maximum payout, Hugo is a video pokie game worth playing as any other top title in the industry today.
