Play’n GO have announced that they will be releasing the sequel to their popular Hugo slot next week. Should we be excited?
It looks like it’s not just Hollywood who are fans of reboots and sequels as we can’t go a month without getting a hit of nostalgia from one or more providers.
Last month NetEnt made the fairly average Blood Suckers II, showing that you can’t always relive your greatest hits, whilst Microgaming hope to reboot your love in the 80s with the Highland slot game next month.
And whilst you might not know, or care, about the little troll called Hugo, out of them all, this Play’n GO slot actually shows the most promise.
We know that last year Play’n GO got the rights to the little Danish TV cartoon troll, creating the so-so Hugo slot.

Now, it was only so-so because, coming from a slot game provider who love to break rules and create insane slots like Viking Runecraft, this was a little… unimaginative.
But you know what? You can’t re-invent the wheel every time.
And if you were a kid of the 90s, and love the theme, it was a whole load of fun.
Of course, part of the fun of playing on Hugo was the fact that a little bit of your childhood got brought straight to your mobile or tablet casino screen.
Hugo 2 might lose some of that effect, especially if you’ve gotten over the glee of finding that video game you use to play on the commodore 64 as a mobile phone slot.
Thank-fully it looks like Play’n GO have a couple of aces up their sleeve.
The problem with the first Hugo was that if you didn’t know the brand, it didn’t bring a whole lot of dazzle.
It was a fairly standard 10 payline game, with occasional free spins, and a simple click me bonus. Even though the wins are good, they are not spectacular.

The new Hugo 2, on the other hand, is a far more interactive slot with far more imaginative graphics and animations.
The click me game sees you traverse a cavern where you can die in a myriad of imaginative ways, whilst the free spins see you spinning away on a rollicking train cart chase.
Suddenly, this troll is charming and funny, rather than just funny-looking.
Ok, we’re going to put our cards on the table and admit that Play’n GO have kindly given us access to play Hugo 2 video slot a week before it’s release.
Only free-play, of course, but it’s enough to make us itch to find this at a good Play’n GO real money casino on the 23rd of November.
And we weren’t even huge fans of the series back when we were kids, so it’s not just nostalgia talking.
We’re in a bit of a tough spot.
Namely because we can’t reveal everything we’ve found out about the game yet; not until the 23rd of November when we’ll write our Hugo 2 review.
However, we can make wild assumptions based on the facts because, well, we know all the facts and how they play together.
So it’s not so much assumptions, as just telling you.

So let’s start with the facts and see where we find ourselves:
Ok, you know what, we can’t do this. We’re just going to tell you.
Yes. Yes it is worth waiting for. In fact, come the 23rd of November, we suspect you’ll be happily spinning and discovering why this cartoon troll franchise is still alive 2 decades later.
Not only is it surprisingly good fun, with great features and wins, but it made us want to find out a little more about the original Hugo games.
But that’s all we are going to say, you’ll have to wait for the full slot review for any more.
Depending on when your read this, the 23rd of November is probably only a few days away.
But who wants to wait that long to play slots online?
So, our advice is to get familiar with Play’n GO and find out why, every couple of weeks, we get excited for their new releases.
Their new Fu Er Dai slot, full of luxury and far east decadence, just came out, as did their Big Win Cat slot that (in our opinion) is a little better even if it is only a 3 reel slot.
However, our favourites have to be the aforementioned Viking Runecraft, and the huge win potential that is the Royal Masquerade mobile slot.
Each and everyone can be found at Rizk, which give you a free spin of their wheel of of Rizk, where you can win huge bonuses with no wagering requirements.
