Those who are familiar with the animated, Danish troll, Hugo, will be pleased to know that Play’n GO and Hugo Games will be teaming up to deliver an exciting new slot game, based on the character. It is scheduled for release sometime in the third quarter of the year.
Hugo’s character comes from the TV show of the same name, which aired for the first time on Danish television in 1990. Due to its major popularity and large fan base, the show went on to air in over 40 other countries, as well as serve as the theme for multimedia across the globe.
Now, players can look forward to the famous character being featured in an online slot game, something that’s not yet been done. Owned by Denmark’s, Hugo Games, this collaboration with Swedish gaming supplier, Play’n GO, will serve as the company’s first real-money adaptation. It is slated to feature 5 reels, 10 paylines, and a number of characteristics inspired by the show.
RoyalCasino.dk has been given distribution rights in Denmark, and Play’n GO has been given the role of supplying the forthcoming slot via direct operators to markets on a more global scale. It will be released in both HTML5 and Flash.
Also in development is an animated feature film, based on the character.
According to Martin Zettergren, chief operating officer for Play’n GO, “We are extremely excited to work on Hugo – a character that many around the world grew up with and remember fondly. We can’t wait to bring Hugo and friends to the world of premium slots, and I’m certain that the agreement with Hugo Games A/S and RoyalCasino.dk will bear fruit for all parties.”
