A Danish television company created Hugo the Troll way back in 1990 and his purpose was to save his family after fighting the forces of evil. Hugo became a star on video games, magazines and several TV shows ever since. Play n Go developed an online video slot based on this heroic character and it’s simply called Hugo. Hugo is presented on 5 reels with three rows and features 10 pay lines. The slot game also comes with numerous bonus features including wilds, scatters, a free spin feature, a bonus game and a top paying jackpot bonus worth 2,000 coins.
Appearance and Betting Options
The background takes place deep inside a dense forest with lush green trees filling up the backdrop behind the reels. The semi-transparent reels are surrounded by a wood frame while the reels are separated by rope. The betting platform received the same decorations with leaves, wood and rope presented across each betting option. There are four high valued symbols that include Hugo’s mining equipment such as dynamite sticks, a pickaxe, a bag of gold and a gold nugget. The lower valued symbols include the standard 10, J, Q, K, and Ace to complete the set of symbols found on the reels.
Hugo provides a fantastic variety of betting options to cater to slot enthusiasts and beginners alike.
