Hugo 2 is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Play ‘N Go which is a sequel to the original Hugo game – playable from 10p to £100 a spin on all devices, Hugo the Troll is back as you hop aboard a mine trolley on your way to free spins, wilds and special multiplier symbols. Can you help recover the treasure stolen by the evil Afskylia? If you do, there are wins of up to 5,000 times your stake on each spin!
Hugo 2 is based on the Scandinavian heroic troll from TV, video games and magazines – with a railway track in the backdrop, it has cartoon style graphics. Symbols on the reels include whistles, levers, hats, mining carts, skull keys, gold bars, bags of gold coins and diamonds – the latter rewards you with 52.5 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
Hugo is the wild symbol and replaces all symbol bar the scatter and bonus – it’s also the most valuable with 5 giving you 75 times your stake. The scatter and bonus symbols both trigger bonus features which are described below.
Look out for the Beaver scatter symbol appearing simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 as this will activate the Troll Race Free Spin feature – you will begin with 10 free spins. Look out for the Beaver Cleaver feature which is randomly triggered – this can give you an additional 5 free spins. It can trigger twice meaning an extra 10 free spins in total. If you trigger it a 3rd time, you will enter the Skull Cavern Bonus feature with 3 lives (more on this below).
Back to the free spins – up to 2 bags can be collected on every free spin. When you collect 4 or more, 4 wild symbols are added to the reels which then replace any 4 symbols.
Furthermore, up to 2 multiplier coins can also be collected on every free spin. When you gather 4 or more coins, 4 2x multipliers are applied to any 4 symbols on display meaning you could benefit from a multiplier up to 8x if you’re lucky.
The Skull Cavern Bonus feature can be triggered from the Troll Race Free Spin feature (as described above) or by getting 3 or more Afskylia symbols anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 1, 2 or 3 lives respectively. Your aim is to navigate through the dangerous Skull Cavern – you can do this by choosing paths inside the cave.
If you reach the treasure chamber unharmed, you can unlock Afskylia’s treasure by picking the correct treasure key. If you reach the end of the feature with 3 lives intact, your win will be subject to a 5x multiplier.
Hugo 2 is all about the Troll Race Free Spin feature really – getting 20 free spins is decent but the potential for 4 wilds and multipliers totalling 8x is good. It’s a highly volatile offering where you can win up to 5,000 times your stake on every free spin. Overall, another decent slot from Play ‘N Go. I still prefer to play other games of theirs such as Fu Er Dai and Grim Muerto.
