This Play’n GO video slot is all about its theme and background. Hugo was the main character of a video game first launched in 1990. The game was played via live Danish national TV. An audience member would call in to the show, and prompt the host of the TV show to control the characters according to the numbers they pressed on the phone. The show aired continuously for about 5 years, which means that this Hugo game was played for a long long while if you think about it.
Hugo is reborn again in this Hugo slot. Along with him come wife Hugoline, evil witch Scylla and Scylla’s henchman, Don Croco. Together they make up the ensemble cast of this video game from Play’n GO. Given that they were all cartoon characters to begin with, the graphics of the game have stuck to this cartoon style. The symbols of the slot are of Hugo, Scylla, Hugoline, treasure chests, dynamites, lumps of gold, bags of gold, pick-axe and letters.
The theme of the slot is that of a gold mine (which explains why so many of the symbols are related to gold). Think gold rush, wooden railway carts, rope, and dangerous conditions. That’s the Hugo slot’s setting.
The Hugo slot is definitely going to hit some nostalgic notes with players who were a part of the franchise back in the 90’s. But even if you have no idea who or what Hugo is (answer: a rather adorable troll), you’re still sure to have fun playing this slot. You can easily piece the narrative together even from the basic structure and gameplay of the slot.
While the graphics aren’t the best out there, they’re solid enough to make the slot enjoyable to play. We can see ourselves killing a couple of hours playing this slot, for sure.
