Hugo is back, and this time he can
reward you with real cash!

Mention the name Hugo in most countries and you’ll get a blank stare, though that’s changing rapidly thanks to a new online slot game. After establishing a multi-million Euro franchise with endless films, books, TV shows, games and other spin-offs to his name, the wildly-popular troll now appears in a five-reel casino adventure as well.

Given the way the online casino industry works in Northern Europe, a Hugo-themed slot makes a great deal of sense: Some of the biggest and most professionally-run online casinos are based in Germany and Scandinavia like mybet and Interwetten - and Sweden tops the list with highly-prestigious sites like Betsson and Mr Green Casino leading the way in terms of site design and game variety.

Some publishing and production companies might be cagey about giving a much-loved children’s character his own play-for-money slot game, but the relaxed – and widely-admired – regulations in Sweden take a far more sensible approach, allowing Hugo fans to hook up with their – or even their own children’s - childhood hero whilst they’re enjoying a session at the casino.

It makes even more sense when you realise that Hugo was conceived in 1987 as an interactive video game – so why not join him in another interactive adventure, and this time maybe win some cash? Playing slots requires some skill and judgement after all, and offers the possibility of a very happy ending if the larger jackpots are won.

The game is made by Play N’ Go, a relative newcomer to the world of online video slots – and it’s available for Swedish players at leading online casinos via www.bä, who can give you quick links to casinos that offer the game with free bonus cash to help you explore it in detail without spending any of your own cash.

Play N’ Go are a very highly thought-of outfit who have racked up some seriously good credits in a highly competitive industry by only launching the highest quality games. Hugo, though, is their first branded slot and they’ve really pushed the boat out to make sure it’s one of their best.

Playable across all desktop and mobile devices, it has 10 paylines and 5 reels and challenges you to unearth the world’s most valuable treasure whilst simultaneously rescuing Hugoline – Hugo’s wife – from the clutches of evil. There’s a vast array of symbols used with the lower-ranking playing card favourites supplemented by various digging accessories like picks and dynamite, bags of gold and golden nuggets.

Hugo himself acts as the game’s wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols and doubling the value of any winning line he’s used in; there’s also a free spins feature that gives you up to 15 complimentary games. This would be the main feature in any ordinary online slot, though here there’s lots more going on:

Land the treasure chest symbol on Reels 1,3 and 5 and the real fun starts. You’ll be taken into a gold mine containing doors that you pick from, and your aim is to reach the treasure chamber without attracting the attention of the Crocodile Henchman – do this and you can win up to 150 times your stake level.

In total, returns of up to 10,000 times stake are possible on this game, though if you’re Hugo fan you’ll have a great time no matter what the outcome. If, however, you’re not a fan of the famous heroic troll you soon will be after giving this extraordinary online slot a few spins.
