The friendly troll is back! And this time, he’s got plenty of charm and wins to keep you spinning.
We weren’t expecting anything much from this Hugo 2 mobile slot game. Whilst we liked the original Hugo video slot, it didn’t exactly bowl us over.
But then again, we were never huge fans of the little Danish cartoon video game troll of the 90s.
And whilst there’s no doubt that if you are a fan, you’ll love this Hugo 2 slot machine, even non-fans will find this funny looking creature surprisingly charming.
The one you hit most frequently is the click me game. And whilst in the original you simply opened doors and found out if you won, here Play’n GO have gotten a little more creative.
Because you come into this casino game with lives, usually only 1 or 3, if you are lucky.
As you progress through the underground Cavern to find the treasure, each choice will win you money, so far so simple.
From bats sweeping you to the bottom of the abyss or huge rocks falling on your head, this Hugo 2 game gets creative.
The more lives you end up with, the more you win of course, but we found we didn’t actually mind losing that much.
Generally it means you only walked away with about 10x your bet, but the situation is so absurd, and you enter this bonus frequently enough, that you are genuinely left with a real sense of fun.
The real thrill comes when you catch the free spins, and you not only spin, but watch as the troll weaves across train tracks, catching multipliers and extra wilds for your free spins.
So much so in fact, you can lose track of watching these 5 reels and 10 paylines in order to watch Hugo catch these extra prizes for you.
The multipliers are the real draw of course, as is that top 5,000 times your bet win – just as high as player favourite Viking Runecraft.
But honestly, this Play’n GO slot wins our hearts by giving the little troll enough personality, and quick action, that we almost regret not having been a fans from the beginning.

Wilds: Hugo is the wild symbol and he can be used to replace any symbol to create a winning payline. He does not replace scatter symbols.
Afskylia Bonus Scatter: Get three of the witch symbols on screen and you'll trigger a mini-game.
Here you have to choose from three potential paths to cross a vast cavern and steal the witches riches - there are 4 levels, plus the treasure pick me level at the end.
If you trigger this bonus with 3, 4, or 5 scatters, you'll start the round with either 1, 2 or 3 lives.
You'll need them as there is only one safe path of the three on each level that won't get you killed in imaginative ways.
If you somehow survive and manage to get to the other side with either 0, 1, 2, or 3 lives, you'll automatically win a 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x multiplier on your instant cash wins.
Mostly you don't survive, because mostly you enter the game with only one life. But it's fun to watch and you get the bonus often.
Free Spin Bonus Round: If you get 3 beaver scatters on screen, you'll trigger 10 free spins.
At this point you'll take your Hugo 2 free spins, but as the reels go, so does Hugo, who in his trolley cart in the background, randomly starts collecting wilds or multipliers for you.
Get enough multipliers, and he'll make it so certain symbols are now worth up to 2x more - very much like in the Pumpkin Smash slot by Yggdrasil.
Collect 4 wilds, and you'll then get 4 wilds on the next spin - also good, especially if you managed to catch a win with those multiplied symbols.
This is, of course, a fairly volatile free spin bonus round however, so don't expect to walk away happy every time. Mostly, it's fun to watch, but you'll need patience to reap the rewards.
We should probably warn you that although this troll looks friendly enough, this Hugo 2 slot on mobile is fairly volatile, so watch your budget.
That said, there's plenty going on over these 10 paylines to keep you spinning, from two bonus games, to decent 5 of a kind wins.
You don't even have to be a fan of the original Hugo to love it; just able to enjoy some high risk, funny, spins.
However, if you find the little Troll tapping on your screen a little annoying after a while (we can understand that) we'd recommend you check out Treasure Mine by Red Tiger Gaming - though you will not win half as much as you can in Hugo 2.
