Cute but Evil Theme
Despite there being a cute theme on offer with the Higo slot machine, there is an element of evil too – the black-haired witch character can scare the pants off Hugo, but in turn reward your bankroll with some generous cash amounts. There are 5 reels and 10 paylines to this slot game, allowing slots players of all budgets to have a go – minimum bets are just 0.10, while maximum stakes are set at 100.00.
Hugo will knock on your screen and then the reels of the game will emerge from nowhere. A dense forest surrounds the slot machine with the control panel full of options sitting beneath it. Your job is to min into the hills and try to collect gold and as much wins as possible. As the reels spin, you will hear a delightful soundtrack, one that’s kind to the ears and adds a touch of mystery to your gameplay.
Symbols on the reels include; Hugo, witch, croc, lady troll, golden nugget, bag of coins, dynamite, pick axe and card values 10, J, Q, K and A.
What Can We Win?
Tempt Hugo onto the reels, if you can get five of a kind you will be awarded the biggest cash amount on offer; 2,000x multiplier. If you are a high roller betting maximum stakes, this will make your 100.00 stake very worthy indeed.
The golden nuggets awards the second highest payout with a 750x multiplier with the bag of coins and bonus game both awarding up to 500x your stake.
Mining for Features
Hugo is the wild symbol, he not only awards the non-progressive jackpot, but he substitutes for all other symbols on the reels (bar scatter and bonus) to help create winning paylines.
The scatter is the witch, a multiplier value will be added to your bankroll when at least two fall into view.
Three or more scatter symbols and you will trigger free spins. You decide on how many you wish to play. Free spins can be re-triggered too. Extra symbols come into play – these are the crocs and female troll, allowing for bigger and better chances to win.
Find your way through the gold mine in the bonus game to win big. You are required to pick one of the four doors to get into the mine. Should you find a golden nugget – the cart will fill with a cash amount and allow you to pick one of three doors in round two. In round three, there are two doors – pick the right one and you will enter into the pit of the mine. Two red chests sit in view and you are to pick just one. At any time, should you find a dynamite – the game will end and you win the amount you accumulated.
Before stumbling across Huge from Play ‘n Go, we had never heard of Hugo – sad but true. This medium to high variance slot machine offers a great deal of winning combinations, exciting features and big payouts. We were lucky enough to trigger the bonus round on our very first spin and we won 130.00 for just a 0.50 stake – and we didn’t get all the way into the mine or get the biggest amounts on offer either. The potential to win big is there.
