Hugo 2 Slot
Welcome to the wonderful realm of Hugo 2, an online slot machine from Play ‘N Go. In similar fashion to the original, players will join the lovely troll Hugo on his quest to find mythical treasures deep inside the gold mine.
Hugo 2 has five reels, 10 pay-lines and a minimum and maximum bet ranging from 0.10 to 100 per spin. The casino game has high volatility and an RTP of 96.53%. Typically speaking, originals tend to be better than their sequels, but this is not the case with this particular slot game. It will definitely become popular with many casino streamers. – maybe even more so than the original Hugo slot.
Design and Symbols
When it comes to symbols, these all relate to the theme. Here we will find a gold bar with the word Hugo on it, a sack full of golden coins and a diamond to make up for the higher value symbols. As for the lower paying symbols, you should find a Hugo cap, a leaver, a skull key and a tub full of charcoal. The highest paying symbol of all is the wild, which features Hugo himself. He can substitute all symbols except for the scatter and the bonus one. The scatter symbol features a beaver and a bonus symbol features the evil witch Afskylia. The max win possible can go up to 5000x the stake.
There are only two special features in Hugo 2, but we are not really complaining as with high volatile games, the potential to win big comes into play during these rounds.
Skull Cavern Bonus Game
You can trigger this bonus by landing three or more Afskylia bonus symbol anywhere on the reels.
- Here you will choose paths inside the cave; the aim is to choose correctly, having said that this is a bonus game so you won’t really know the outcome before you have made a decision.
- The goal is to help Hugo reach the treasure unharmed. Once you make it to the end you can unlock the treasure of Afskylia by picking the correct treasure key. In addition, each path can award a cash prize.
- If you manage to reach the treasure, any win you have made will be multiplied by the number of lives you have left. These multipliers range from 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x the total win for 0, 1, 2, or 3 lives remaining.
- The more bonus symbols you land while triggering this bonus, the more lives you will have.
- Just be careful as the path is dangerous and you might lose lives while making your way to the treasure!
Troll Race Free Spins
You can trigger the free spins by landing three beaver scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5.
- The initial number of free spins you will get is 10.
- You can win extra spins during the feature for a maximum of 20.
- If you reach the 20 max number of free spins then there is a chance to enter the Skull Cavern bonus game with 3 initial lives.
- During the spins, when you accumulate four or more wilds they will be applied to the reels, replacing four random symbols.
- You can also collect 0 to two multipliers, so if you collect four or more, then these multipliers will be applied to any four symbols on the reels.
Reviewers’ thoughts on Hugo 2
The Hugo 2 video slot is certainly an improvement from its predecessor. It has an excellent design and impressive animations. The bonus and free spin features have huge winning potential thanks to the multipliers available. After giving it a couple of spins ourselves, we never got to the end of the Skull Cavern Bonus Game, as there were never enough lives left and the game is solely based on luck, so we’re not entirely sure what happens there.
