Hugo 2 is the second slot game based around the fictional character Hugo, produced by Play N’go. It features a colourful and cartoonish design with the potential to win big progressive cash prizes at a return to player of 96% makes it a game definitely worth a shot.
What is the story of Hugo
Originating in Denmark in the 1990s, according to fiction Hugo is a friendly, small Scandanavian folklore troll who fights against evil. The franchise has seen television series, comics, books and games made about it. Hugo 2 is the sequel to the hugely popular Hugo slot game released in 2016.
In this game, Hugo heads below ground in order to find riches stolen from him by his enemy, who has hidden these riches within an extensive set of mines.
What Symbols will I see in the Hugo 2 Slot Game?
Being set in mines, bettors will see typical mining equipment such as mining carts, levers, hard hats, and the bags of gold that Hugo is trying to find. Hugo himself is the wild symbol, helping you create more winning combinations and rake in even bigger profits.
The scatter symbol in Hugo 2 is a character called “eager Beaver”. This feature can appear on reels 1,3 and 5, and finding him on all three sees players enter the troll race free spins feature in the game, which rewards you with ten base free spins.
There is also a special scatter feature, Afskylia, a fictional witch and enemy of Hugo. Find three of this symbol on the reels and you will enter a “click me bonus” mini-game. In this mini game, you have to pick the correct path (from 3) across a giant cave and make off with Afskylia’s wealth. But beware, there is only one correct path, and failing to find it will see you killed in a variety of imaginative ways. You start this adventure with between one and three lives, and if you succeed, you can be rewarded with up to a 5x multiplier on your cash winnings.
The Troll Race
The Troll Race is the free spins section of Hugo 2. In these free spins, players are aiming to collect the bags of gold which were taken from Hugo. Per spin, players can find up to two bags of gold. Each time four or more are found, four wild symbols enter the game, increasing your chances to win.
Hugo 2 Free Play
As with almost all games brought to market by Play N’go, it is possible to play Hugo 2 in free play mode, as well as playing it for money. We strongly recommend giving Hugo 2 free play a spin, as it will help you decide whether or not the game is for you. Whilst in these reviews we aim to give as much guidance as possible, realistically there is no substitute for experiencing the game first hand, and doing this through free play means that you are not risking any money, whilst still getting to grips with the game.
If you liked the original Hugo, you will love this sequel. It does enough to keep interest without becoming stale despite the same characters largely present. The potentially big prizes means that it is definitely one to consider giving a shot.
