Playtech’s new Hugo’s Adventure Slot takes internet “trolling” to an all new level!
For most of us, nostalgic cartoons are an evocative reminder of easier days, before the responsibilities of adulthood came along to invade outdoor play and Saturday mornings in front of the television. Hugo the TV Troll was one such character. An international media franchise from Danish founder ITE, Hugo and his anthropomorphic friends brought joy to the children of more than 40 countries since 1990; first in animated cartoons, then video games, and soon to be in film.
Playtech is capitalizing on the franchise with the introduction of
its latest Hugo-branded online slots adventure. In 2016, Playtech
released the first edition, known simply as Hugo Slot.
Then in late 2017, the follow-up Hugo 2 Slot was
released. Mid 2018 saw another revival of the popular character in
Hugo Goal, a soccer oriented edition revolving around the show’s
famous title characters.
Now, in 2019, Playtech is sticking to its ‘one per year’ average
with the fourth installment – a game they call Hugo’s
Adventure. This time around, Hugo takes to the skies in his
trusty stunt plane, and dives deep to scour the ocean floor, taking
trolling to an all new level as he searches high and low for the
world’s greatest treasures.
Playtech’s New Hugo’s Adventure Slot
Hugo’s Adventure offers a traditional video slot set-up, featuring
5 reels, 3 rows across, and 10 fixed pay lines. The min/max bet range
is $0.10 to $100. Its high variance is best suited for well stocked
bankrolls, paying out at an average RTP of 96.53% – the highest yet
in the company’s branded Hugo online slots franchise.
The game’s symbols include Hugo, his wife Hugolina, his animal
pals Fernando (the toucan) and Jean Paul (the chimp), along with card
values of Ace, K, Q, J and 10. Hugo is the Wild, taking the place of
all other symbols, except scatters, to line up winning combinations.
As a stand alone symbol, Hugo pays the highest prize of 5000 coins
for 5 on a line.
Features in Hugo’s Newest Online Slots Adventure
There are two adventure features that players can partake in. The
first is the Air Ace Free Spins, triggered by seeing 3 or more stunt
planes on the reels in the base game. The second, Underwater
Adventure, is unlockable from within the Air Ace feature.
Air Ace Free Spins
Hugo starts with 1 initial life. Free spins continue until Hugo runs out of lives. With each spin of the reels, Hugo will veer his plane left or right. Up ahead, he’ll fly through a variety of shapes. A red heart balloon awards 1 extra life. A gold balloon awards a 2x multiplier (up to 16x can be collected on a line). A bomb will take away -1 life.
As the Air Ace makes his way through the skies, his symbol on the
reels becomes a Flying Wild. Whenever he appears, he will stay on the
reels, sliding left one position per spin until he disappears from
the first reel.
If Hugo continues to survive in the free games session for 20
spins without running out of lives, it will trigger the next bonus
stage, Underwater Adventure.
Underwater Adventure Bonus
Hugo dives into the ocean, where the the online slots adventure
takes on its most lucrative feature yet. First, the side of his
submarine spins to reveal 1, 2 or 3 hearts. These represent the
number of lives Hugo has underwater. His mission is to swim all the
way to the Skull Palace, defeat the evil crocodile, Don Croco, and
escape in his submarine. He’ll come across a variety of openable
items, like oyster shells and treasure chests, containing instant
credit prizes (woohoo!) or a disastrous fate (lose -1 life).
Make it past these to take on Don Croco. You’ll have to pick one
of two anchors. Pick the right one, and Don Croco is crushed,
awarding you the big prize. Pick the wrong one, and it’s bye-bye
