Get ready for another bumpy reel ride on the slot from Play’n GO. Hugo Carts takes you on a wild adventure on rickety carts in search of precious gold nuggets. Joining Hugo and Hugolina comes with wild substitutions, three base game modifiers and a free spins round where the modifiers can all be active at the same time to deliver wins of up to 25,000 times your bet.
Hugo Carts is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 1,024 ways to win. Pays are awarded for landing three to five matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost. You can join the hilarious couple on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 10 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (8/10) with a default RTP of 96.23%. Beware, some operators might offer it with secondary RTP settings of 94.24% or even as low as 91.24%, always read the help file to find out which version you will be playing.
From the lofty sky looping on Hugo Adventure, it is back down into the gold mines on this latest slot in the Hugo franchise. Together with his lovely wife, they jump fearlessly into rickety carts in pursuit of the precious metal. Hot on their heels is the evil witch Scylla trying to snatch their newfound riches. The wood-framed game area is set in the midst of the mine while the three main characters popular the reels.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 to A, carved in stone and awarding 0.5x to 1.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by shovels, pickaxes, oil lamps and miners’ hats. Hit five across the reels to win 1.5x to 3x your stake. A bag of gold nuggets is the wild, substituting for all regular symbols and yielding 10x your bet for five. Lastly, a bundle of dynamite sticks acts as the scatter.
Hugo Carts Slot Features
The hilarious couple has been with us since 2016 when Play’n Go released the original Hugo slot. Since then we have seen Hugo 2, Hugo Goal and Hugo’s Adventure being added to the franchise. Just as much part of the reel campaigns have been the evil witch and Don Croco. All characters are returning now for a more volatile quest to find gold nuggets worth up to 25,000x bet.
Watch out for any of the three characters – Hugo, Hugolina and Scylla – appearing at any time on their designated reel in the base game as they will be key to scoring big wins. Any or a combination of them will trigger a single respin with the respective modifier/s applied to the reels. Worth noting is that the respin cannot be retriggered.
- Reel 2 – Hugolina: Adds 2-5 wilds to random reel positions
- Reel 3 – Hugo: Adds 2-5 symbols multipliers of up to x10 to random symbols. Any win containing one will then be multiplied by the factor.
- Reel 4 – Scylla: Adds 5-9 mystery symbols to random reel positions. All will reveal a common pay symbol.
Hitting three, four or five dynamite scatters will trigger 7, 9 and 11 Free Spins respectively which can be retriggered twice only. Don Croco might make a surprise appearance on a base game spin to add two scatters to random positions, making it easier to trigger the feature. One of the characters will be randomly chosen to apply its modifier on every free spin. One retrigger will add a second character and modifier while the second retrigger will get you the last one. All remaining free spins are then played with all three modifiers – random wilds, symbol multipliers and mystery symbols – active on every spin.
Not sure how everyone who has played any of Hugo slots will feel about Hugo Carts, but to me, it has a vibe of being the peak in the franchise. The 5-reel format is pretty much maxed out and the win potential is at least 2.5x higher than on any other in the series. Worth mentioning are the odds of hitting the max win on Hugo Cars which comes in at 1:1 billion spins, so don’t expect it to happen that often.
