We love a good slots universe, and there have been a few over the years, but one of the more recent entries into the market has been the Hugo games that have come out recently. He’s been a goalie, a miner, and now he’s on a round the world trip like something out of a Jules Verne novel in Hugo’s Adventure!
Not everyone will be familiar with the little Danish cartoon hero, but luckily you don’t need to know a lot about him in order to appreciate the wacky goings on. But is this slot just fun and games or can you win a fortune too? Let’s find out in our Hugo’s Adventure review.
The main game in Hugo’s Adventure isn’t the main attraction in this slot, so you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that it’s all fairly bland to start with. The background is a generic seashore picture, while all the high value symbols are travel related, including planes and a range of animal ground staff like pilots and mechanics. The low value symbols are just the standard 9 – A, but even these have like fruit machine symbols on them such as bells, clovers, dice and diamonds, while fun and jazzy sound effects and background music make it all a rather playful romp.
The main game is fairly standard in Hugo’s Adventure slot , and as we’ve said it’s really just a waiting room for the bonus games, so it’s got a fairly standard layout with five reels and three rows with ten pay lines. The top paying symbol is Hugo himself who pays 50x your stake, not bad but hardly a king’s ransom, though the betting limit of £/€/$100 means you can do quite well out of it regardless. However, the main attraction is definitely the bonus games, which can bring your RTP up to 96.53% if you play your cards right!
There are two varieties of adventure available in the Hugo’s Adventure slot game, the air adventure and the undersea adventure which are triggered by different scatters, which are at heart a pick and win and free spins game. The undersea adventure gets triggered most often, sending you off into a scary looking cave to pick prizes from treasure chests, and it’s no walk in the park! Hugo risks being crushed by falling rocks or swept to his death by shoals of angry fish, but you can also win big cash prizes too! Similarly the air adventure is fraught with danger, starting with nine free spins and one life, though good spins can give you extra prizes and extra lives as well as more free spins. Bad spins can have you hit mines, losing lives and eventually knocking you out of the sky. Hit enough multiplier balloons and you can benefit from a huge 16x on each spin, more than enough to turn the tables in your favour!
Hugo’s Adventure is another hit in the growing series of games based on the loveable troll, and this has to be his most exciting adventure yet. Regardless of the mechanics the theme always manages to draw you in, but the fun missions under the sea and in the air have to be played to be believed, and the prizes aren’t bad either!
