Hugo is a Gold Mine!

You may have never heard of Hugo before, but this is one sweet troll you should get to know. The super Free Spins feature and a Bonus treasure hunt pay out quite nicely, but the big surprise was that the base game can reward very handsomely on its own.


Hugo is based on the plot of a wildly popular 1990s Danish kids show, also called Hugo, that aired in over 40 countries. It never made it to Aussie shores in its TV form, so none of us here at Slots Play Casinos ever saw the original TV show, but this is definitely one Pay’n Go slot you shouldn’t switch off!

Set in a magical forest and hosted by Hugo, a cheerful, yet nasally little troll in search of gold, this game is a real treasure! There are just 10 paylines, 5 reels and 9 base symbols. Hugo is the Wild, his evil arch-nemesis, the black haired witch, represents the Scatter symbol and the Bonus symbol is a treasure chest.

In the base game, the Wilds substitute for everything except bonus and scatter symbols and double all winnings. 2 or more Wilds also pay out in their own right. So almost every time Hugo pops up, you know you’re in for a double winning treat.

Special Features

Really, who doesn’t love a good treasure hunt? Especially when you win actual treasure! The bonus game in Hugo is triggered by 3 or more treasure chests popping up anywhere on the reels. It takes you to an underground mine where you have to choose doors to find treasure and move on to the next level until you finally choose a door with Don Crocco behind it, who literally kicks you out of the bonus game.

The Free Spins feature is also unique and well designed. If you get 3 witch Scatter symbols, you get to choose between 3 options: 5 Free Spins where the extra scatters are x3 multipliers, 10 free spins with extra scatters that are x2 multipliers or 15 free spins with extra scatters. All Free Spin Sessions can be retriggered and the wins can add up to really expand your bank roll!


Hugo is well designed, has multiple bonus features and, as it turns out, was much more fun to play than expected. The other reason you’ll love this game is that it simply pays out more often than almost every other slot game we’ve encountered. Score!
