Theme & Symbols
Hugo keeps his classic look from way back when he was first designed though he has kept up with the times and sports a bit of a modern twist. The title in general looks like a standard minecart themed title just with our hero Hugo thrown into the mix.
Blue crystals grow all around this title, they give the game that little level of detail that is always so nice to see. While we might be in a cave that doesn’t mean it has to be all dark and gloomy, developer Play’n GO made sure to add the classic Hugo charm to every nook and cranny.
The grid is basic but it works, it’s a solid piece of wood that houses all the symbols in the game. It’s a perfect fit for this title as you’d expect to see something similar down a mine shaft like this one. It’s clearly been here for a while as crystals have taken root and started to grow off the edges of the grid.
Music and animations are great, once again Play’n GO have shown that they deserve to be up there with the rest of the industry leaders. Reels spin smoothly and symbols have a charm to them that makes the game that much more inviting.
In all, the developer has done a great job adapting the character of Hugo to the video slot format. They did him justice while transitioning him to a more serious format.
We’ll start by listing all the low-paying icons first. These are all represented by playing card values so expect to see 10, J, Q, K and A appear quite often on the reels.
Next we’ll talk about the high-paying symbols, these are the ones that you’ll want to appear on the grid as you play the game. They’re represented by tools you’d expect to find in a mine, things like a Pickaxe, a Hardhat, a Spade and a Lanturn.
Golden Nugget Wilds will substitute for any common icon in the game and help you build winning combos easier.
Hugo, Hugolina and Scylla are all present in the game. They each only land on specific symbols and each have their own bonuses that they bring with them. Hugolina only lands on reel 2 and adds 2 – 5 symbol multipliers up to x10, Hugo only lands on reel 3 and drops 2 – 5 Golden Nugget Wilds and Scylla only lands on reel 4 and casts 5 – 9 Mystery Symbols. Any single character or character combinations will trigger a respin!
A stick of dynamite represents this game’s Scatter symbol. Land enough of these and you’ll trigger a special gameplay feature.
