Hugo 2 Slot From Play’n Go Released

Given the huge reception the first iteration received, Canadian players are eagerly anticipating this newest version

Play’n Go, one of the top developers of online casino slots and progressives, has released its newest title Hugo 2. The game is a sequel to the highly beloved and acclaimed Hugo released just last year.

Given the huge reception the first iteration received, Canadian players are eagerly anticipating this newest version. And if early reviews are any indication, Play’n Go has managed to capture all the things that made Hugo a success, while also adding tons of new and exciting features as well.

“With enjoyable new features, detailed graphics and prolonged gameplay potential, this title is another strong addition to our games portfolio and we expect it to be even more successful than its predecessor,” said Johan Törnqvist, Play’n Go’s CEO in a statement.

Classic Hugo Storyline

One thing that won’t be changing is the classic Hugo storyline. Players will still have to aid Hugo as he goes on a quest to strike it rich. Standing in his way is Afskylia, a witch whose evil, miserly ways attempt to block him at every path.

Although Hugo was able to do just fine in the original, he’ll need plenty of help from players this time – who are sure to share in the spoils of the huge slots jackpots they will find along the way.

Slots Get The Franchise Treatment

There are no shortage of popular films and books that have seen a sequel or even two be made subsequent to the original release. What’s interesting with Hugo 2 is that Play’n Go not only thought a sequel was necessary, but thought it was necessary just a year after the release of the original.

“The Hugo franchise and Play’n GO’s original slot have given fans and casino players plenty of joy over the years, and so we’re delighted to return to the troll’s adventures and deliver Hugo 2 to them,” Törnqvist said in explaining the decision to go ahead with a sequel so quickly.

The concept isn’t entirely new in the online slots world, but it’s certainly not common. If Hugo 2 turns into the success anticipated, it will certainly be interesting to see if developers focus more on creating sequels to other popular titles in the coming years.
