Swedish game developer Play’n GO has partnered with Hugo Games A/S to create an online slot timed to coincide with FIFA World Cup fever, Hugo Goal.
The three-reel football themed title, featuring 1990s cartoon TV troll Hugo, is the third collaboration between the two companies, following the success of Hugo, and Hugo 2, released in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
“We wanted to build on our success with Hugo,” said Play’n GO CEO Johan Tornqvist, “releasing Hugo Games to operators at a perfect time, ahead of this year’s World Cup.”
“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.”
The game, designed to appeal to both sports fans and casino players, offers a high number of bonus features, with players winning by matching three symbols on any payline.
