The 2018 World Cup is only a couple of days away, and it looks like developers around the globe are down with the football fever.
One of them is the Swedish online games specialist Play’n GO, which has prepared a new title to arrive at casinos in time for the upcoming football tournament in Russia.
The latest addition to Play’n GO portfolio represents the third game made by the famous developer that features the Danish cartoon character Hugo, a friendly, small Scandinavian folklore troll fighting against evil.
This time, Hugo will show us his football skills.
Titled Hugo Goal, the game is more compact when compared to previous releases based on the same character. It features a three-reel three-row layout with a total of 5 fixed paylines.
The game has wide betting options, with the wagering starting as low as $0.05, while the maximum available bet is set at $100 per spin. You can also adjust your bet during the Auto Play mode, which offers additional options, such as the number of played spins or the win and loss thresholds.
To make things more interesting, Hugo Slot offers a variety of special features, including the Action Replay round, where the appearance of two fully stacked matching symbols during a losing spin, while the final reel continues to re-spin until the player receives a win.
Hugo is the game’s Wild symbol, substituting for every other icon on the reel. The list of symbols also includes a female referee, a crocodile, and a goat commentator.
Another thrilling feature is the Free Kick, which resembles Action Replay, although two full stacks of matching symbols are needed on a losing spin. The final reel will be then respun, giving the player another chance to grab a win.
The Penalty Shoot-out is the game’s main feature. Its goal is to fill all three reels with matching symbols and to save five penalty kicks by controlling Hugo himself. The more penalties you save, the bigger will your multiplier be. If you’re skilled enough, you can go all the way up to 10 times.
The game is available for both desktop and mobile devices and is already up and running at any Play’n GO-powered online casino.
