Play’n GO has moved a “much-loved character” in TV troll Hugo into the world of football ahead of this summer’s showpiece in Russia.
The iGaming supplier has embraced World Cup fever by releasing Hugo Goal, a 3-reel online slot featuring Hugo alongside his main adversaries, Afskylia and Don Croco, as well as the Goat.
The third collaboration between Play’n GO and Hugo Games A/S, which comes with plenty of bonus features, will see its players try to match three symbols on any payline to win.
Play’n GO Game Producer Tamas Ujszaszi said: “Hugo has such a diverse world of recognisable characters and he fits into so many different scenarios, it wasn’t easy to decide who we wanted to star in the game alongside him!
“In the end we settled for Afskylia and Don Croco, his main adversaries; we also introduced Goat, who is one of the older characters from Hugo’s world, to give a classic feel.”
Play’n GO CEO and co-founder Johan Törnqvist believes that the timing is just right for Hugo’s latest adventure. He added: “We wanted to build on our success with Hugo and release Hugo Games to operators at a perfect time, ahead of this year’s World Cup.
“This game will appeal to a large player base. Play’n GO are looking forward to an exciting summer with lots of entertaining football, and the game will offer some alternative fun between matches. We can combine players’ interest in Hugo and the tournament, giving our partners plenty of cross-sell opportunities.”
