Hugo 2 Online Pokie Has More Exciting Features

December 11, 2017


One of the more popular online pokies at Casino Mate is Hugo from the online casino games supplier Play ‘n Go. It is great news for players at Casino Mate that Play ‘n Go has launched a sequel to this online pokie titled Hugo 2.

Hugo continues to award the highest line payouts and be the wild symbol. But he does not multiply the payouts. The evil Afskylia does not award scatter payouts this time. These shortcomings are more than compensated for by lucrative bonus features. The other symbols are again taken from the mining theme and include diamond, gold, gold bag, mine cart and Hugo’s cap. All symbols are thematic and the usual playing card icons have been done away with.

The bonus action begins with the Troll Race. Three beaver symbols trigger 10 free spins. The free spins take place in a dynamic background on a pump railroad trolley driven at a furious pace by Hugo. Beaver Cleaver is a randomly triggered feature during the Troll Race. It may award additional 5 free spins. If this feature is triggered 3 times, you get direct entry to the Skull Cavern bonus game with 3 lives.

The Troll Race free spins have other features as well. During each free spin you can collect up to 2 bags. The collected bags are displayed above the reels. When you have accumulated 4 bags then 4 wild symbols will be added to the reels giving a much increased possibility of hitting winning combinations. You can also collect up to 2 gold coins on each free spin. These will also be displayed above the reels. When you have accumulated 4 gold coins then symbols on the reels will be allotted multipliers up to 8x. This will considerably enhance the payouts. You can get both wild symbols and multipliers added on the same free spin.

Three or more Afskylia symbols trigger the Skull Cavern bonus game on the second screen. Three symbols start you with 1 life, four symbols start you with 2 lives and five symbols start you with 3 lives. You have to successfully navigate your way through Skull Cavern to win up to 5x your total bet. You have to select pedestals to cross the cavern. You may get knocked off are squashed and lose a life. If you lose all lives on the way the feature will end. But if you get across you will open a treasure chest for the final reward.
