Everyone’s favourite troll returns with plenty of people’s favourite sport. Play ‘N Go have combined the Hugo character with the game of football in a hugely fun slot game!

Players will be delighted to know that the Hugo Goal slot game provides them with some of the recognisable characters from previous instalments of the troll’s adventures with Afskylia, Don Croco and the Goat all making appearances.

Our Hugo Goal review will provide players with everything they need to know in order to find the back of the net with this game.


Hugo Goal is played on three reels and features five winnable paylines. Players can look to spin the reels in this football-themed slot game for as little as $0.05. Those that fancy their chances in front of goal and back themselves to score when it matters can spin the reels for as much as $100.

The betting panel along the bottom maintains all the traditional buttons that can be found in previous instalments of the Hugo series, with Play ‘N Go sticking with a format that is instantly recognisable. There are various values of bets available to set, whilst there is the ‘Autoplay’ button to allow players to let the reeles spin automatically for a set period of time.

Bettors do have the option to test the game out with the Hugo Goal Free Play version available, although we would recommend heading straight into the action as the game is so simple to play!

Items that can be associated with the sport of football can be found on the paytable, with a pair of flags representing the low-paying icons. These are then followed by a watch, a pair of football boots, a whistle and a football before characters from the Hugo franchise get involved. Goat and Don Croco are both represented, whilst Afskylia is a referee in the Hugo Goal slot game. Each of the symbols provide players with a 3x multiplier, although the evil witch provides players with up to 500 credits.

Hugo is the main character that players need to look out for in this football match, though. The troll acts as the game’s Wild and will pay out up to 1,600 credits if three are landed on. He does also have the ability to provide players with winning combinations as he can substitute himself in and replace other symbols.

Feature Bonuses

Our Hugo Goal games review managed to find a number of great feature bonuses, with some of them providing players with some great rewards!

The first to have been found was the ‘Action Replay’ feature. This is activated when two stacked character symbols appear on the reels. The third reel that does not feature one will respin and will continue to do so until players form a winning combination.

Implementing aspects of football, Hugo Goal also features free-kicks. If two of the symbols that are represented by items associated with the sport land on the reels as stacks, the third reel will respin once to provide another chance of finding the back of the net in regards to recording a win. 

Although they do not happen all that often, penalty shootouts are perhaps one of the most famous aspects of the sport and Hugo Goal provides players to participate in one. However, this sees you take on the role of Hugo and means you need to save the penalty kicks, not score them!

This round is triggered when the reels are full of the same symbols i.e. only footballs are showing. Players will be tasked with trying to save as many as five penalties. For each one that is saved, the win multiplier will increase and this can go up to a maximum of 10x.

RTP (return to player)

Hugo Goal slot game has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.49%.  This Play ‘N Go game is of a high variance, though, therefore big wins can be produced but players may have to be rather patient.
