et to be released in Q3 2016 simultaneously in HTML5 and Flash, Hugo will be a five-reel, 10 pay line slot that features premium animations and sound based on the classic animated character’s original environments.
The deal between the parties will see RoyalCasino.dk receive exclusive distribution rights in Denmark, while Play’n GO will then bring the title to other markets around the world through direct operators deals.
First seen on Danish TV screens in 1990, the interactive children’s TV show Hugo aired in more than 40 countries and has spawned dozens of video games, books, magazines and feature films.
Copenhaged-based Hugo Games A/S owns the intellectual property rights to the Hugo franchise and Play’n GO’s forthcoming title will be the first real money game adaptation for the listed company.
Martin Zettergren, Chief Operating Officer of Play’n GO, said: “We are extremely excited to work on Hug, 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.”
