Theme of The Game
It’s quite rare to find mobile slot machines with 3-reel setups that offer unique themes, and for this particular category I’d say that the football inspired design qualifies as such. The game, Hugo Goal, is part of a series at Play’n GO, with the main characters being common for all titles, both with 3 and 5 reels.
Theme wise, we’re getting a football themed slot machine first of all, but at the same time we’re looking at Hugo the troll in the main role. This cute troll was part of other mobile slot machines that Play’n GO has released recently, so it’s becoming a major series for them. The action takes place on the football field, a small one that has various wild animals sitting in the stands, as spectators. The reels which are placed in the middle have images with Hugo, the female referee, a crocodile and a goat, while the lesser symbols get footballs, whistles, boots, chronometers and flags. An excellent design overall, one of the better you will find in a slot with 3 reels.
A company that has been established in 2004, Play’n GO has managed to put out well over 100 slot machines since they started working in this field. They’re doing very well and they have consistently released great games, hence the reason why they’re popular and available at a lot of other casinos. One of the areas where they’re particularly good is in graphics, something that’s evident from Hugo Goal as well.
How To Play It
Layout wise, this is a standard game, which delivers 5 active lines, and the bets you use will reflect that. These bets are selectable from the bottom area, with a list of possible values available to you there. Click on one of the bets that range between $0.05 and $100, and that’s going to be your bet for the round. Naturally, you have a line bet of $0.01 to $20 in that range.
Play’n GO has a certain way of doing things, and the interface of Hugo Goal isn’t that different from their other releases, despite the fact that it’s a classic. The features are interesting though, and they’re not typical at all for a 3-reel game.

Several stacked symbols are part of the game’s reels. Hugo is one of them, also acting as a wild, while the other three show the rest of the characters. The presence of stacked symbols makes it easier to get a full screen filled with matching symbols, and that’s the way to the biggest rewards.
Hugo is your main character, the wild symbol and the one that will form combinations that pays up to $1,600.
Probably the most important feature of the game is the Penalty Shoot-Out, a rare option that you only get when filling a screen with matching symbols. The penalty shoot-out bonus game will then decide the multiplier for the round, and it can go up to 10x.
Free Kicks occur during non-winning spins, when you get two stacked symbols and you’re missing the third to get a win. A re-spin is included.
Action Replay requires two stacked symbols covering two reels, and it will re-spin the third until a win is awarded.
The top jackpot of the game is $80,000, and it’s the result of a screen filled with Hugo wilds (giving you $8,000) and getting the highest 10x multiplier in the resulting Penalty Shoot-out.
It’s among the best 3-reel slot machines you can play right now, and it’s even more fun if you love football.
