As you would expect, there will be plenty of football in the media this summer. In the spirit of the World Cup, Play’n Go has launched a new slot machine named Hugo Goal. The game was launched late May 2018 and this time, it’s Hugo’s football talents that will be the focus of the video slot.
Whether you’re a football fan or not, you’ll probably enjoy playing the Hugo Goal Slot Machine. It is based on the popular 90’s cartoon character Hugo, making it the third video slot machine in the Hugo series from Play’n Go.
By design, this new casino game is simple. After a few minutes of play, you’ll understand most of what’s going on. This is because the game isn’t packed with loads of features, bonuses and extras but nevertheless, it is still a very entertaining slot.
In this article, we will take a closer look at the game’s features, how it works and of course where to play.
Play’n Go Hugo Goal – How does it work?
Hugo Goal is a classic video slot featuring 3 reels and 5 Paylines. In the game, Hugo takes on the role of goalkeeper, the goat is the commentator and the crocodile Don Croco and Afskylia are referees. There are also lots of other animals such as owls, monkeys and toucans cheering from the sidelines.
Hugo’s symbol is the wild and can replace all the symbols, helping players to land wins. Afskylia’s symbol has the highest payout, offering 5 times the bet for three of a kind. Other lower value symbols in the game include flags, footballs, stopwatches, football Boots and whistles. Play’n Go did not include Scatter symbols in Hugo Goal.
Bets range from 5p up to £100. RTP is set at 96.49% and the maximum you can win is 800 times your bet.
Hugo Goal – Features and Bonuses
The Hugo Goal slot machine has 3 main features:
- Action Replay: This feature is triggered on non-winning spins and guarantees a win. It happens when you will get two full stacks with high value symbols. The 3rd reel will then continue spinning until you get a winning combination.
- Free kick: This feature is similar to the Action Replay but with low value symbols. You’ll get one free re-spin to try and get a winning combination. Unlike the Action Replay, landing a win here is not guaranteed.
- Penalty Shootout: This feature is the main attraction of the game. It is triggered when all three reels have the same symbol. You will then play as Hugo the goalkeeper and try to save penalties by choosing to dive left, right or up. The more penalties you save, the higher the winning multiplier. Save all 5 penalties and you will get the 10x multiplier.
