Hugo 2 Slot Review
Hugo 2 is a slot game by Play’n Go launched back in 2017. This game continues the tale of Hugo the troll on his treasure hunting adventure, this time featuring railways. The slot has a distinctive cartoonish style and you get to spin the reels along to the upbeat soundtrack.
Just like its predecessor, Hugo 2 has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 betweys. It’s also a highly volatile game with RTP value of 96.53%, which means you won’t see wins too often but if you are willing to take the risk, you will be rewarded greatly. Just know this slot isn’t for players on a low-budget.
You can place bets from as much as C$0.10 minimum and up to C$100 max. Such a low betting range may be appealing to low-rollers but if you love to bet big, you might find this unsatisfactory. However it is possible to win up to 5000 coins on any of your spins.
Gameplay & Bonus Features
To help the good fellow Hugo escape the evil Afskylia, you will need to traverse through the complex railway system of caves, and of course you shouldn’t forget to collect some treasures along the way.
The highly detailed animated symbols are all entirely unique, you won’t see the generic card symbols in this game, instead each card matches the theme of trains like Train Whistles or Railroad Lever. You will also find treasures found in caves like Gold, Skeleton Key and Diamonds, these symbols will pay you more too.
Hugo the Conductor acts as a Wild symbol in this slot, and he also takes the role of the highest paying symbol of the game. Not only will he substitute for all symbols but Scatters and Bonus, getting 5 of a kind on a winning payline will earn you 50x your bet, up to 5,000 coins max!
Hugo 2 offers plenty of bonus action for the player, one of them is Troll Race Free Spins Feature. You can activate it once 3 Beaver Scatters land on reels 1, 3 or 5 and receive 10 Free Spins to gamble with. Your main goal here, is to collect golden coins and bags. Collect coins and you will get a multiplier on your winnings, from 2x and up to 8x. If you manage to collect enough bags instead, four Random Wilds will appear on the screen boosting your chances to score some wins.
Your friend beaver might randomly award you with 5 Extra Spins if he feels like it, that’s when Beaver Cleaver is triggered. Activate Beaver Cleaver 3 times more to gain an access to the Skull Cavern Bonus game with 3 lives.
The main trial that awaits Hugo is in the dangerous Skull Cavern and requires Hugo to meet with Afskylia face-to-face. 3 Afskylia icons will let you access the Cavern but with only 1 life. Landing four or five however, will make the journey more secure with 2 or 3 lives.
Head towards the hidden treasure, doing your best to avoid the traps Afskylia has placed for you. Cross the chamber by choosing numbered columns, if you make the wrong pick, you lose one of your lives. It is possible to collect multipliers and cash prizes before reaching the final target, the Treasure Room. After you have finally arrived, you need to choose the correct key to open the chest and either claim all the riches, or lose everything.
