COPENHAGEN, May 31st 2018: Hugo Games A/S (OAX: HUGO) has once again teamed up with omni-channel slots specialist Play’n GO to create “Hugo Goal,” an exciting online slot game using the “Hugo the Troll” franchise owned by Hugo Games.

“Hugo Goal” has just been launched by Play’n GO and is a 3-reel slot game based on Hugo, the popular 90’s TV troll. This is the third time Play’n GO has created a game based on the beloved Hugo character and this newest edition sees him entering the world of football.

Hugo Games’ CEO Henrik Nielsen is very pleased to be working with Play’n GO again. Furthermore, he believes that the World Cup in Russia, which kicks off on the 14th of June, will draw attention to the new Play’n GO slot game.

“We love soccer at Hugo Games and we thought it only natural to celebrate the upcoming World Cup using the Hugo character,” says Nielsen.

“We have been working with Play’n GO for several years and it’s always satisfying to see how they are able to bring new life to our classic and beloved characters in the world of online slot games. It’s great to be working with the Play’n Go team and we are looking forward to continuing the partnership.”

Play’n GO CEO and co-founder Johan Törnqvist also believes that the timing is just right for Hugo’s latest adventure:

“We wanted to build on our success with Hugo and release Hugo Games to operators at a perfect time, ahead of this year’s World Cup,” says Törnqvist.

“This game will appeal to a large player base. Play’n GO is looking forward to an exciting summer with lots of entertaining football, and 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.”

Hugo Goal is the latest in Play’n GO’s expanding roster of top quality games, and it looks like they’ve scored themselves another winner.
