Hugo Goal Gameplay and Bonus Features
The paytable is split into two groups, Items and Characters. Items are the low-paying group and the five of them pay from 0.60x to 1.20x your bet for three-of-a-kind, which is the only winning combination possible in this game since it has three reels. The three Characters pay significantly better prizes of 3x, 4x and 5x your bet respectively, and Hugo is the Wild that pays 16x your bet if you land three of them on a winning payline. Characters and Wilds are stacked symbols that are three symbols high, so with them, you always have a chance of landing a full board win which would grant 5 payline wins. Items can also appear stacked, but not always.
Action Replay is a feature that will give you unlimited re-spins of one reel if the two other reels each have a full stack of the same Character symbol. The re-spins will go on until you win, and this is a great feature that will help you get a big win. The same thing happens when you have two full reels of the same Item symbol, but in that case, the feature is called Free Kick.
Finally, the most important feature in the game, which will get any player excited, is triggered whenever you land a full-board win. You'll enter the Penalty Shootout, with you/Hugo as the goalkeeper, and will get to save 5 penalty kicks. Each one you save will increase the win multiplier for your full board win – x2, x3, x4, x5, and finally x10 if you save all five. This means you can win up to 800x your bet on a single spin in this slot game! In case of a maximum bet, that would be $16.000. This is one of those slots that actually should be played for real money, as the prospect of getting that win multiplier is worth the risk. Also, the Penalty Shootout game will be infinitely more fun if you're winning at a real money casino!
