If you were a child in the years after 1990, you must’ve watched or even played Hugo, the TV show where you can control the character Hugo with your telephone buttons. This was a massive hit TV show that received huge attention from people globally. And a few years back, Play’n GO brought it on the reels. There are several titles in the Hugo slot series by the developer, but the new one surpasses all of them in terms of quality, called Hugo’s Adventure.
The symbol with Hugo in a gold-framed square with the W letter at the bottom is the Wild and the highest-paying symbol in the slot. It replaces for all symbols on the reels, but not for the Aircraft Scatter and the Submarine Bonus symbol. The former lands only on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel, while the latter on the 2nd and 4th.
Now, you should know that the gameplay revolves around two key features. The first one is the Air Ace feature, during which further features can be activated. It is triggered with 3 Scattered Aircraft. You get 1 initial life, and 9 Free Spins. Then, should Hugo hit a "1+" balloon, you get extra lives. If the Air Mine hits Hugo, on the other hand, you lose a life. When the number of lives hits 0, the feature ends. The maximum Free Spins you can get is 20. Now, during the Free Spins, you could see Flying Wilds appearing and moving 1 reel to the left until disappearing from the view. Or, you might see up to 4 Extra Balloons appearing with 2x at the end of each spin on random spots. These Balloons multiply your winnings up to 16x.
If at the end of the feature Hugo still has 1 life, you trigger the second major feature, the Underwater Adventure. If, on the other hand, Hugo has 2 lives, not only do you trigger the Underwater Adventure, but it will begin with 1 extra life! Now, you can also trigger this feature by landing 2 Submarine Bonus symbols. This is when the submarine spins and gives you 1 to 3 initial lives. You then need to pick from the treasures buried under the sea, each containing either a cash prize of up to 25x the stake or dangers. Dangers reduce 1 life. But, for each life you have remaining, the submarine will spin again and again give you a multiplier of up to 20x the stake.
Theme & Design
Hugo in this slot, contrary to other slots in the series, dives into the deepest of the sea in pursuit for buried treasures. You will see the picturesque landscape at first, with the bright blue sky and the calm waters, and then as you enter the two major features, you go underwater.
Presented with cartoony graphics, Hugo's Adventure takes you on a fun adventure, where you will meet Hugo's nemesis the Eagle Pilot, his friend the Money Repairman and his girlfriend Hugolina. You will see them all on the reels, along with Hugo as the highest-paying symbol, giving you 50x the stake for the best combo. For the lowest-paying symbols, you will find the playing card Royals, with a dice, clover, golden bell, diamond and horseshoe attached to each of them.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 10 paylines in Hugo’s Adventure, for which you can place a minimum bet of $0.10 and a maximum of $100.00. The RTP is 96.53%, meaning the average one.
Now, Hugo can deliver a payout of up to 50x the stake, should you land 5-of-a-kind combo with its symbols. This means that for the max bet, Hugo can deliver $5,000.00. However, with all the Multipliers during the fun, feature-packed, dynamic gameplay, you could scoop a 5,000x the stake maximum payout. This means that half a million can be yours in a blink of an eye. $500,000.00 is a lot of money, worth trying the game for.
As expected, Hugo’s Adventure looks and plays impeccably. We loved the dynamics, the gameplay and the visual representation a lot. We cannot decide which we liked more: the animations and the gamification used for the special features or the actual maximum payout potential of half a million. Combined, these make the slot incredibly fun and rewarding and engaging enough for any slots player to appreciate.
