Play’n GO has released another installment in their Hugo series, titled Hugo Legacy, which marks the sixth game in the series. Following the initial release of Hugo (2016), subsequent titles including Hugo 2 (2017), Hugo Goal (2018), Hugo’s Adventure (2019), and Hugo Carts (2021) were launched. Hugo Legacy commemorates the 30th anniversary of Hugo the Troll.
A troll like no other
The game showcases improvements in gameplay and mechanics as part of the ongoing series evolution. Played on a 7×7 grid, the game continues the style of Hugo Carts. Players engage with Hugo and his companions, Jean Paul and Fernando, as they once again face off against Scylla and Don Croco. The objective is to assist them in their mission by eliminating Dynamite, Legacy Gap, Gold, Key, Diamond, or Character symbols to achieve a win. Bonuses are accessible upon filling the Overcharge Meter. Each character possesses distinct traits that can influence gameplay, with the option to refresh abilities as needed.
The Charge feature triggers when the main character amasses 15 Charges, introducing five to eight wilds. Upon the second activation, two to five Low-Paying symbols transition to High-Paying. However, the third activation results in Scylla safeguarding one or two wilds while eliminating others. Further features include Fernando transforming one symbol type into a Wild upon the fourth Charge, and the fifth Charge causing Jean Paul to duplicate symbols for creating winning Clusters.
Five tiers of free spins
Accumulating between 35 and 50 Scylla and Don Croco symbols unlocks five tiers of Free Spins, with the potential for additional Free Spins as more symbols are collected. This round offers a Gamble option for enhancing potential prizes. The structure of the Free Spins segment may remind players of the Viking Runecraft slot from 2017. After a Free Spins session, symbols have the chance to reappear on the grid, enhancing the game’s win potential.
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, as well as Hugo 2, Hugo Goal, and Hugo’s Adventure.”
“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.”
