The playful Danish troll is back in town, this time as a goalkeeper, more than willing to help you score some really big prize. The Hugo Goal slot machine comes as a sequel to two highly popular slot games from Play’n Go, Hugo and Hugo 2, brimming with simple, yet powerful bonus features that can pave your way to hefty cash rewards. The exciting release benefits from the randomly triggered Action Replay feature, Free Kick Respins and Penalty Shootout enhanced with up to 10x multipliers. The top-prize in this medium to high variance release is 800x your bet.
Before the whistle goes off signifying the beginning of the football game, you will be required to adjust your stake by clicking on +/- on the Quick Betting Panel. Once you selected the desirable stake, hit the Spin option to set the reels in motion. If you wish to sit back and relax, spinning the reels without interruption, press the Autoplay feature.
The reels are populated with three high-paying symbols which all pop up stacked on the reels. Those are a referee, a commentating goat and a crocodile supporter. Low-paying symbols include the referee's whistle, a football, a pair of football boots, linesman's flag and a watch. Wilds are represented by Hugo himself that can land three positions high, substituting for all other symbols to form a winning.
The Action Replay feature is triggered at random on any non-winning spin when two reels are covered with the same character symbol. The reels will now respin until you create a winning combo.
Free Kick can be triggered on each non-winning spin, when two reels are filled with the same low-paying symbol (the referee's whistle, a football, linesman's flag, or a pair of blue boots). Players will now receive a free respin, trying to complete another winning.
Fill the entire three reels with the same symbol and trigger the Penalty Shootout where you will be taken to another screen with Hugo assuming the role of a goalkeeper. In this game, you will be required to save as many penalties as possible by choosing one of the arrows on the goal and instructing Hugo where to dive. By saving penalties, you will raise the multiplier as follows: 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x.
Hugo Goal is a simple, medium to high video slot with an average return to player of 96.49%. If you are keen on football and the World Cup, then this Play'n Go title will, no doubt, be right up your alley. Moreover, the simplicity and straightforward features will suit the less experienced punters. The highest potential payout on a spin is 800x your bet awarded with the help of 10x multipliers in the Penalty Shootout feature.
