Hugo was one of the unexpected hits of the slot world, the Play’n Go slot based on the popular Danish cartoon about a charming troll.The trend in the world of online slots at the moment is sequels, especially to successful slots, as proven by the instant popularity of NetEnt’s Bloodsuckers II a short time ago. Not one to miss out on an opportunity., Play’n Go have announced that a sequel to Hugo, originally titled Hugo 2, next week.The original Hugo, despite being received well by audiences, was, in fact, a fairly average slot, so does Hugo 2 look to improve on the mistakes of its predecessor?
About the slot
The issue with Hugo, was that it didn’t really bring anything unique or imaginative to the table, which is a disappointment if you know what Play’n Go are capable of, and may make you wonder what the fuss is about if you do.However, there is no such problem with Hugo 2, which has brought vastly improved graphics and animations which bring the much-loved troll to life in ways the original could only dream of. It’s a great looking slot, that will make you love Hugo even if you missed out on his 90s heyday.
This five reel, 10 payline slot is highly volatile, with the ability to win up to 5,000 times your bet on a single spin.There are two scatter symbols, leading to two features, one being a pick and click bonus that offers a multiplier of up to 5x, while the other is a free spins feature that gives you ten spins, with extra wilds and multipliers in play throughout, which can lead to some big wins.More information will become available about Hugo 2 soon, but currently, it seems to be everything a sequel should be, namely, a huge step forward from the original.
