If you’re already familiar with Hugo the Swedish cartoon-turned-slot protagonist, then this slot’s theme won’t be confusing to you. The character was originally created for TV in 1987 as an interactive game, reaching massive popularity. But for those who never encountered this cartoon troll before, things could appear somewhat bizarre. Allow me to paint a picture for you. The grid sits within a lake backed by lush mountains, and the soundtrack is up tempo and fun. Hugo himself is a little horned troll with a single tooth and a cheerful appearance. His adventure could take him down two routes, each one being a special feature to be unlocked.
There’s also a female troll, and both her and Hugo appear on the reels are in full 1980s aviation gear. The remaining symbols include an eagle in a captain’s hat and a grinning monkey clutching a sharp looking weapon. The low value items are A, K, Q, J, and 10, each accompanied by a traditional symbol like a shamrock, gold bell and dice. The symbols which will transport you to the bonus games are a submarine and a plane. The special features are where the slot’s theme really shines through, although I still have absolutely no idea what Hugo the troll is doing diving for treasure and battling underwater alligators. This is the fourth slot adventure Hugo has been on, which means that despite the monetary gamification of a kid cartoon, the general opinion is obviously a favorable one.
