Expert's review Melanie Hart

Slot tested

Board the minecart and head deep down into the caves with Hugo Carts. Our favourite troll, Hugo, is back and with him is his wife Hugolina and the meanie Scylla in this 5-reel slot with 1,024 dynamic payways.

When he crossed over from video games to slots, Play’n GO made sure to give him quite the spread of games and this is the 5th release bearing his name. It’s possibly also the most interesting and entertaining of the bunch. OK, heading down to the caves looking for gold might be an overused slot theme but Play’n GO has made this game quite exciting with the respin features in the base game.

There are some gorgeous designs, cheeky animations and an adventurous soundtrack that will keep you on your toes.


The high-paying symbols all feature mining equipment, while lower-paying symbols take the shape of card suits.

The symbols, from highest to the lowest consist of:

  • The scatter tile is dynamite. With 3 or more scatters the free spins round is triggered.
  • The Wild tile is a bag of gold and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. Five-of-a-kind will yield 10x.
  • The helmet yields 3x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The gas lamp and the pick yield 2x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The shovel and the Ace yield 1.5x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The King and the Queen yield 1x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.
  • The Jack and the Ten yield 0.5x with 5-of-a-kind adjacent tiles.


  • Re-spin round

During the base game, any character that lands on the reels will award a re-spin with a special feature. Multiple characters can appear also in one spin, in which case the features are stacked for the re-spin.

  • Hugolina may land on reel 2. She will add between 2 and 5 multipliers (up to 10x) to random positions on the reel.
  • Hugo may land on reel 3. He will drop between 2 and 5 Wilds in random positions around the reels.
  • Scylla may land on reel 4. She can cast between 5 and 9 mystery symbols anywhere on the reels.
  • Free spins bonus game

Three or more scatters will trigger the bonus round. Landing 3 scatters awards 7 free spins, 4 scatters award 9 and 5 scatters award 11 free spins.

At the start of the bonus round, a character will be randomly selected between Hugolina, Hugo and Scylla. Every spin in the bonus round will have the same properties as the character in the re-spin feature. If another 3 or more scatters land on the reels the bonus feature will be retriggered. This can only happen another 2 times until all the characters have been chosen.

  • Don Croco

At any point during the base game, Don Croco might make an appearance. He will go through the reels and randomly drop 2 dynamite scatter symbols. This means you are just 1 scatter away from triggering the bonus round. Good ol’ Don Croco.

In conclusion

This slot might be all about the Hugo universe but it definitely feels like a highly volatile Play’n GO slot. Don’t be fooled by its cartoonish looks, the engine underneath is cut-throat and it may make a serious dent in your balance.

This high risk does come with a 25,000x max win but the chances of hitting this are 1 in a billion spins. The high rewards are most likely in the bonus round which isn’t the easiest to get to. The first time around I had to wait for over 250 spins before I hit the 3 scatters.

The base game doesn’t offer a lot of rewards, even when the characters come round for a respin feature. Most wins I was registering seemed to hover around the 5x-7x because of the low symbol values. The yield for the bonus game was a disappointing 34x.

That’s high volatility for you, but I honestly couldn’t see the potential for big wins in this game. At one point, in one bonus round, I only managed a 4x win which is shocking. The symbols just weren’t landing right, and this was my experience throughout. So all in all, Hugo Carts is a very enjoyable game to play, with interesting mechanics and great design choices. Just keep an eye out on your balance as with its high volatility it may be drained quite quickly.
