How Hugo Goal works
In the world of online casino, sometimes some characters used for a slot machine are so popular that they come back for one or even several sequels. This has been the case with the slot adventurer Rich Wild, who has several slot machines named after him. But another kind of hero has had his name used for several slot machines, and that is the character Hugo Delirious, a children's hero created in Denmark in the early 1990s. Here, the little troll puts on his boots in Hugo Goal, a slot machine by Play'n GO!
Released in October 2016, the Hugo Goal slot features the famous character, who this time finds himself on a soccer field! The starting grid is relatively small since it is composed of three columns, each with three symbols. The graphics and animations perfectly reproduce the very special world of Hugo Délire. And with the sound atmosphere, you will be totally carried away in this universe. Several features are present in the basic game, each of which is based on events that can happen during a soccer match. However, you will not be able to unlock free spins in Hugo Goal.
The first feature present on the base game is the "Replay Action" feature. This feature is randomly triggered on a non-winning spin, where a combination of two whole stacks of the same character symbol will replay the last available reel until you make a win.
The second feature is called "Free Kick". This function is also triggered on a non-winning turn. It is very similar to the "Replay Action" feature in that it will fill two columns with the same symbols, this time representing objects, and will re-spin the last reel once, giving you an extra chance to make a win.
The third and last feature is the "Shootout" feature. You can trigger this feature when all columns are filled with the same symbol. Once triggered, you play as Hugo, who is a goalkeeper, and your mission will be to try to stop as many shots on goal as possible. You have five attempts to save, and for each penalty shot saved, the multiplier increases by x 1. If you manage to save all the penalties, then you will inherit the maximum multiplier, which is x 10! This multiplier will then be applied to the winnings of the spin that triggered the feature.
Hugo Goal is a slot machine with a volatility that is considered high, while the payout ratio (RTP) is 96%, which places it perfectly in the average of the slots present on the market. As for the maximum payout, it is 800 times your initial bet, which is a nice amount of money to try to win.
The different symbols of Hugo Goal
Hugo Goal from Play'n GO is a slot machine with several symbols, which can be grouped into two categories: common symbols and premium symbols. There is also a Wild symbol, represented by the main character Hugo Delirious, which can substitute for any symbol except the Scatter symbol, so it can be useful for making connections or unlocking a feature. It can also earn you up to 16 times your original bet.
First of all, there are the common symbols, of which there are five. These symbols are so called because they appear much more often, but because of this, they have a lower payoff. They are represented by objects that can be found at a soccer game:
Flags, which can earn you up to 0.4 times your original bet
The timer, which can earn you up to 0.6 times your original bet
A pair of cleats, which can earn you up to 0.8 times your original bet
The whistle, which can earn you up to 1x your starting bet
The balloon, which can earn you up to 1.2 times your initial stake
Below are the potential payouts for each common symbol in relation to a one euro bet.
Next are the premium symbols, of which there are three. If these symbols are considered premium, it is because unlike the common symbols, they are much more profitable but logically they appear much less often. They are represented by different characters of the Hugo Délire universe:
The goat that can bring you up to 3 times your initial stake
Don Croco, which can earn you up to 4 times your original bet
Afskylia, which can pay you up to 5 times your initial stake
As with the common symbols, below are the potential payouts for each premium symbol in relation to a one euro bet.
The connections in Hugo Goal
As you may have noticed, the Hugo Goal slot machine has a relatively small starting grid. Indeed, with only three columns each containing three symbols, inevitably the number of paylines would be proportional. Indeed, you only have five fixed paylines on the Play'n GO slot, which you can see on the screen below.
In order for a connection to take place, and thus to realize winnings, the same symbol must appear at least once on the three columns of your starting grid as well as on a connection line. Please note that connections at Hugo Goal only work from left to right.
How the bonus works in Hugo Goal
As mentioned earlier in the introduction to this Hugo Goal review, you will not be able to unlock free spins on this slot. So you will have to make do with the three features in the base game.
The absence of a bonus game on Hugo Goal is a pity, as the universe of Hugo Délire is vast and could have offered us a bonus feature in the image of this universe, that is to say totally delirious and colorful.
