Hugo Slot Review

The Danish cartoon character, Hugo, takes a starring role in this slot machine from Play N’ Go. With huge prizes galore, this is a game that you are going to love to play.

How to Play Hugo Slot

Anybody who watched ‘What’s Up Doc’ on CITV back in the 90s will have heard of Hugo. This ‘loveable’ character was the start of an interactive game show.

This ‘phone in show’ allowed callers to control a character on the screen. If you don’t remember Hugo specifically, then you will probably recall a child screaming down the phone “up”, “down”, “left”, “left” or something to that effect. Anyway, Hugo was a massive TV star. His popularity seems to have waned in recent years, at least in the UK, but it is only fair that he has his own slot machine.

Hugo is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot machine created by Play N’ Go. The minimum bet per spin is 10p with the maximum bet being £100 per spin.

The theme, as you have probably guessed, is based around Hugo. It has a very cartoony look to it. We like that in casino games. The music is listenable, and the game is certainly playable.

What we absolutely love about this slot machine is that one of the features actually ties into the theme of Hugo Slot. This is rare nowadays. We will discuss that special feature in a short while.

You start the game by setting the value of the coin (maximum £1.00). You then set the number of coins you wish to bet, followed by the number of paylines you wish to play.

Finally, you hit that spin button. At this point, there is little you can do but cross your fingers. Hopefully you will hit a special feature. If not, don’t worry too much, one of them will pop up sooner or later.

The winnings in the ‘standard game’ seem to be resting on the higher side of the spectrum anyway, so it is not a massive loss.

Bonus Rounds & In Game Features

There are three bonus rounds or in game features that you need to be aware of in Hugo Slot, which we explore below.

Hugo: he is your wild symbol. He can substitute for all symbols in the game bar the scatter and the bonus symbol. He is going to help you to form a winning combination. One of the niftiest parts of him is the fact that if you manage to score him in a combination, it will actually double your winnings.

Treasure Bonus Feature: if you hit three of the treasure chest scatter symbols, the ‘treasure bonus feature’ will be triggered. You are only able to get these symbols on the 1st, 3rd and fifth reels. You will then enter the treasure chamber. This is very much tied to the theme of the game. You can then choose the doors. Behind each door is a cash prize. The maximum you can win here is 150x your initial stake. Behind one of these doors is Don Croco. If you get him, the feature will end.

Free Spins Feature: If you get three or more of the evil witch (her name is Afskylia, for those who are unaware), you will trigger free spins. You will be given the option of the number of free spins you want. You can have up to 15 however the less free spins you take, the greater the multiplier is. If you opt for 15 free spins, there is no multiplier. If you opt for five free spins, everything will be multiplied by 3. You will be able to trigger more free spins in the game.

Hugo Mobile Slot

There is a mobile version of Hugo Slot available. As with other Play N’ Go games, it works very well. Since this game is based upon a cartoon, the graphics just pop out on the screen. It is a true joy to play. This has been sitting on our mobile devices for a few months now. We love the game so much.
