After a great reception of Hugo slot, released in 2016, Play’n Go decided to treat the fans of their slots by releasing Hugo 2, which already managed to top its predecessor in terms of graphics and bonus features.

Younger crowd may not know that the story of Hugo goes way back to the 90s, when this charming troll has become a household name after it was first aired in 1990, as the main character in an interactive game show for children.

Hugo’s popularity was instant and continued to grow over time, resulting in numerous video games, merchandise, magazines etc, and audience all over the world got to enjoy the adventures of the troll and cheer him on as he was fighting against evil forces to protect his wife Hugolina and their children Rit, Rat and Rut.

Developer

Play’n Go is a Swedish gaming company that describes its beginnings as a journey from a small team of IT nerds to highly experienced software developers, with the goal to inspire and entertain.

Over time, the company has grown into one of the leading slot providers and one of the first to expand onto the field of mobile technologies.

You will have a hard time finding an online casino that does not provide a selection of Play’n Go games and some of their most popular releases are Mystery Joker, 7 Sins, Samba Carnival, Wild Blood etc.

How to Play It

In Hugo 2, bets are selected through a bar placed at the very bottom of the screen. Once the amount is determined, the player is ready to start spinning, which can be done either manually, or by setting up the AutoPlay mode.

The goal is to land a combination of at least three matching symbols, with Hugo Wild as a substitute for all other icons except for the Beaver Scatter. The value of the combination will depend on the icons that form them – the highest payouts will therefore be generated if the player lands an all-Wild combo, or for a string of Diamonds, Money Bags and Gold Bars symbols.

Special Features

Bonus features are probably the strongest point of Hugo 2, and the developer provided everything from Free Spins and multipliers to the adventure style in-game called Skull Cavern.

With the landing of three Beaver icons, Troll Race will be unlocked and 10 Free Spins initiated. Each of the spins can award two W Money Bags, which will in turn add 4 extra Wilds on the reels – just as soon as the player manages to collect 4 of these bags. This is not the end of surprises in Free Spins; while the feature is in progress coins are collected, awarding up to x8 multiplier.

During the extra spinning rounds, Beaver Cleaver can be triggered after any spin, unlocking 5 more bonus spins. The same feature can be unlocked two more times, adding a new 5-spins session on the second time and triggering Skull Cavern on the third time Beaver Cleaver is unlocked.

Once inside the Skull Cavern, the player’s task is to avoid the hidden dangers and win the multipliers. If you are fortunate enough to get Afskylia icons during the bonus game mode, a new life will be awarded and the game continued.

Maximum Payouts

Maximum amount that the player can expect in Hugo 2 is x5000 of the triggering bet. Having in mind that the stake limit is $100, one lucky strike could generate $500,000.

The theoretical return to player is 96%, which means that the slot is a medium variance game and the player should not expect exceedingly long sessions of dry spins. Hugo 2 offers a wide betting range and can be equally enjoyed by the players who are on a budget, but for the best result, increasing the wagers is recommended.

Summary

As always, Play’n Go does not disappoint when it comes to quality and great slot background story.

Special features are particularly enjoyable and each of the bonus games is created in a way that will keep the players on their toes, by either introducing an actual adventure-game into the slot (Skull Cavern) or adding coin rewards and new symbols during the free spins. With the potential payout and exceptional design of the game, Hugo 2 is a jackpot by itself.
