It’s time to go back to childhood and reminisce about the beloved three-toed troll Hugo. Play’n GO and Hugo Games A/S’ collaboration was fruitful one more time, and the company released another game in the series of Hugo slots, Hugo Legacy.
Greatly beloved troll:
This is the sixth game in the series. Everything began in 2016 when Hugo was released. After the huge success of the game, Hugo 2 (2017), Hugo Goal (2018), Hugo’s Adventure (2019), and Hugo Carts (2021) were released. It is followed by the new Hugo Legacy, which celebrates the 30th anniversary of the famous Hugo the Troll.
Thanks to the company’s advanced IPs, the gameplay and mechanics improve with each new release.
The game is placed across a 7×7 grid and follows the thrilling gameplay of the previous release, Hugo Carts. Hugo and his friends, Jean Paul and Fernando, are fighting against Scylla and Don Croco one more time, and the player’s mission is to help them.
The main mission is to achieve the win by removing Dynamite, Legacy Gap, Gold, Key, Diamond, or Character symbols. The bonuses are unlocked if the Overcharge Meter is filled. Each character has its own characteristic, which can greatly affect the gameplay, with a great possibility to refresh each ability once needed.
When the main character collects 15 Charges, the Charge feature is triggered, adding five to eight wilds. If it’s activated for the second time, two to five Low-Paying symbols will become High-Paying. But the third activation will lead to Scylla’s protection of one or two wilds while others are destroyed.
There’s more: the fourth Charge will lead Fernando to change one symbol type into the Wild, and the fifth one needs Jean Paul duplicate symbols to create winning Clusters.
If between 35 and 50 Scylla and Don Croco’s symbols are collected, five Free Spin tiers are unlocked, followed by additional Free Spins if more symbols are collected. This round grants the player an opportunity to Gamble the win, allowing them to greatly increase the potential prizes.
This Free Spins organization can remind the players of the popular Viking Runecraft slot, released in 2017. After a Free Spins round, the symbols can appear on the grid one more time, enhancing the win potential of the game once again.
George Olekszy, a Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, said: “Hugo Legacy is a truly ambitious slot. This game rewards fans with cool nods and references to characters from across the Hugo character roster, bringing back memorable faces from the original Hugo (2016), as well as Hugo 2 (2017), Hugo Goal (2018), and Hugo’s Adventure (2019). Because it’s Hugo the Troll’s 30th birthday, it’s only right we honor the IP, his multi-media franchise, and his slots with this truly dynamic title. The Charge features and character-specific abilities are truly terrific.”
