Do you want to take a joyful ride into a place full of treasures and exciting adventures? Well, Hugo has the answer and invites everyone to join him in a treasure hunting quest. Knownase a loveable troll, this interesting character is featured in the latest Hugo Carts slot released by Play’n GO. This 5-reel with 1,024 paylines slot machine is another Hugo installment in the Scandinavian troll saga. Well, I’m not complaining about the choice of character and theme. If it’s working and delivering good entertainment (and potentially huge payouts), why change the formula, right?
To make another exciting slot production, Play’n GO adds a few extra thrilling features to this Troll-inspired game. With a huge potential win of up to 25,000x, this slot will certainly become one of your favorites. The game is packed with Multipliers, character-driven Modifiers, and Re-spin features. You can also trigger its Free Spins bonus where you can win up to 11 Hugo Carts Free Spins. This is another Scandinavian-themed adventure on the reels that you don’t want to miss.
Playing slots can be fun and rewarding most of the time. But as players, there is a need to weigh the advantages and downsides of a slot before getting into it. This is my approach again with Hugo Carts, a fast-paced slot game from a well-known studio. It comes with a playful theme and boasts Dynamic Payways which promises more ways to win. The game’s premise looks interesting but in the interest of fair review, I will share some of its highs and lows.
The slot game features an impressively designed interface with cartoonish gold mine as its reel background. Presented in a 5×4 layout, Hugo Carts revisits the adventure of Hugo and his partner and provides players with a fun way to spin the reels. As always, Play’n GO succeeds in creating a colorful and fun slot game. Hugo is a playful character, and he sets the tone in this slot machine. I also like the cartoonish approach in designing the symbols and the whole production, creating a relatable slot game.
Among the paying symbols to watch out for are Axes, Lamps, Shovels, and Helmet. You will also find low-value royals like 10, A, J, K, and Q. The background music of this slot is playful as well, making it more enjoyable. Meanwhile, you will not have any difficulty navigating the game’s Menu since all options are placed at the bottom part of the interface. You can see your current balance, bet range, current bet, Spin button, and the AutoPlay button.
Just like the original Hugo slot machine, Hugo Carts is easy to play. During the base game, you get a win if you land three to five matching icons adjacent on the reels. Brightly colored icons of 10, J, K, Q, and A are the low-paying symbols in the game. Meanwhile, high-value symbols include Spades, Pickaxes, Lamps, and Hard Hats. You are getting a five-of-a-kind combination of any of these symbols awards you 1.5x to 3x your bet. Watch out for Wild Nugget Bags as they replace any of the pay symbols. This rare symbol can pay up to 10x your bet.
Aside from the traditional rules, Hugo Carts also comes with Dynamic Payways. You start the game with 1,024 paylines, but this can grow as Multipliers split the paylines. I think that it’s an interesting concept and one that boasts your win potential.
In this game, the bets range from 0.10 credits to 100.00 credits. To play the game, you first need to place a bet and click the ‘Spin’ button to play the reels. There is also an AutoPlay feature to speed up the gameplay.
Activating the Free Spins feature is pretty straightforward, and all you need are three Bags of Gold Scatters. Here’s what to expect from the game’s bonus round:
Also, Don Croco spices up the game as he drops two Scatters onto the reels, which can help you enter the game’s bonus. As you play, you will also meet three interesting characters: Hugo, Hugolina, and Scylla. One character is selected before starting the Free Spins, which rewards you with a modifier for big wins. For example, Hugolina adds two to five symbol Multipliers up to 10x. With Hugo, you can expect two to five Golden Nugget Wilds sprinkled in random positions. Finally, Scylla gives you five to nine Mystery symbols which all change to matching pay symbols.
Hugo Carts may be the fourth in the series, but it still brings the same level of excitement as the previous games. Play’n GO has scored another hit with Hugo, and this game validated its standing as one of the best game designers in the business. What I liked most about this slot is the base game Modifier Re-spins that can be triggered repeatedly. I also love it when the character modifiers reward me with Re-spins. For me, the key to big wins comes from Hugolina as she throws up to 10x multipliers into the mix. The return of Hugo on the reels is a welcome development, and I will not be surprised if the studio will continue this franchise.
