Play ‘N Go’s Hugo’s Adventure Slot Review

Play ‘N Go’s Hugo is back with Hugo’s Adventure, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot that can be played from 10p to £100 a spin – on all devices of course. It comes with a pick me style game where you win cash bonuses and multipliers. It’s all about the free spins where you can get up to 20 free spins with multipliers up to 16x.

Visually, you will see the same cartoon graphics used in other previous slots (Hugo and Hugo 2) – the game is set at sea and in the air. With A, K, Q, J and 10 card suits, you will see bird pilots, troll stewardesses and monkey mechanics. Hugo, acting as an aviator, is the wild symbol – he substitutes for all symbols (bar the scatter) and will give you 2.5, 7.5 or 50 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

When it comes to bonus features, Hugo’s Adventure comes with 2. First up is the Underwater Adventure feature which is played when you get 2 submarine bonus scatters on the reels at the same time (on reels 2 and 4). The submarine then spins giving you 1, 2 or 3 lives. You then choose treasures under the sea which will give you a cash bonus.

Some treasure picks will contain danger – this takes away 1 life. At the end of the feature, each life you have left will see the golden submarine spin to give you a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x. This multiplier is then applied to the sum of your winnings from your picks. If you had 2 or 3 lives at the end of the feature, the multipliers are combined.

Look out for the aeroplane free spins feature – when 3 appear (on reels 1, 3 and 5), you will trigger the Air Ace feature where you will get 9 free spins and 1 life. Look out for +1 balloons landing as this will give you an additional life – if an air mine strikes Hugo, a life will be lost. You can also win more free spins with a maximum of 20 in total available.

To help proceedings, you will see Flying Wilds on the reels – this shift 1 reel to the left with every free spin until it shifts off reel 1. You can also see up to 4 extra 2x balloons appear at the end of every free spin - more than 1 of these balloons will see the multiplier potentially increase up to 16x! If you finish the feature with 1 or more lives remaining, you will enter the Underwater Adventure feature.

Quite simple design wise, Hugo’s Adventure is a highly volatile slot – I quite like the Flying Wilds in the free spins as well as the multiplier balloons. The potential 16x multipliers can result in payouts of 5,000 times your stake on every free spin. If you want high variance titles though, Play ‘N Go is a specialist in them – I would opt for Wild Falls as you can win 10,000 times your stake on each spin.
