Hugo 2 is the second instalment in the popular slot game series that has been created by Play ‘n Go that follows a Scandinavian troll on his adventure. The original Hugo slot game was a huge hit for bettors, therefore it was only natural that a Hugo 2 slot game would be produced and made available.
During our Hugo 2 slot game review, we were delighted to learn that the game would keep its cartoon-style themes, however it certainly appeared to have been given a facelift and one that many players will largely welcome.
Indeed, following on from their successful first instalment, Hugo 2 slot game provides players with the traditional five reels and 10 winnable paylines that they were accustomed to in the original. The bets that players can place also remain at the same levels, with the lowest wager being as small as €0.10 whereas those who want huge rewards on their journeys can place the maximum bex of €100 per spin.
As with other slot games developed by the Swedish makers, there is a game panel across the bottom that allows players to customise their gameplay experience. ‘Auto Play’ is available in which the reels are spun automatically without the player needing to for a set period of time, whilst there are the traditional ‘spin’ and ‘paytable’ buttons as well as the middle ‘betting value’ possibilities.
However, the symbols are where some of the changes have been made in the Hugo 2 slot game. Hugo’s wife – Hugolina – no longer features and neither does Don Croco – Afskylia’s evil henchman.
There are also no traditional playing cards to feature, either, which is a welcomed bonus. Instead, there are a plethora of different mining-themed icons available on the paytable, whilst the caps and carts, the skull keys, the stacks of gold bullion and the diamonds represent higher-paying symbols.
Hugo is the most valuable symbol as well as being the Wild symbol. When he is landed on, he can provide wins of up to 50x the original bet and also has the power to substitute other symbols. The Scatter symbol is the Beaver, whilst there is also the addition of a Bonus symbol, which is Afskylia.
Our Hugo 2 slot review managed to uncover some great bonuses within the game that players will love. These bonuses are all available to test in the Hugo 2 Free Play version above this review as well!
As mentioned, the Afskylia icon is the Scatter and this will trigger a mini-game when three of them appear on the reels. Players will need to choose from three potential paths to cross in order to steal the witches’ riches.
Three scatters will provide one life, whereas two and three scatters will hand out two and three lives respectively. There is only one safe path from the three that are choosable, so the more lives, the better the chance of winning.
If players are able to reach the end of the path, they will receive a multiplier on the win depending on the number of lives remaining. Zero lives will provide Hugo with a 2x multiplier, whereas three lives will hand out a 5x multiplier.
The bonus round can be re-triggered, as can the Free Spin Bonus round within the game as well. This round will be triggered when three or more of the Beaver Scatter symbols appear, providing players with 10 free spins as a reward!
RTP (return to player)
Hugo 2 slot game has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.53%, however the slot game’s volatility is incredibly high.
