The maximum win potential playing this slot is 48150x the stake. HippoPop™ can be played on all devices from €0.30 to €40 per spin and is considered a high volatility game.
As the 6th edition to the PopWins™ series, HippoPop™ is a psychedelic slot game, powered by GATI and in association with gaming giants Yggdrasil. One great aspect of the PopWins™ series is that each slot comes with its own unique design and theme. Some of the PopWins™ series include; TikiPop™, WildPops™, PopRocks™ and more!
The base game starts on a 5x3 reel set which can expand during the PopWins™ feature.
Where to play
How to win big on HippoPop™: Free Spins
To trigger the free spins feature, the reels are required to increase to 6 symbols high during the main game. Once the feature is activated the reels will revert back to 5x3 but can increase up to 8 rows high maximizing the chance of landing bigger wins.
Any multiplier which was added during the base game before the free spins feature was activated will be carried over to start the free spins feature. The Multiplier will increase by 1 after the wins are paid and will not reset between spins.
Landing Hippo symbols will increase the payout as shown below,
- Reels are 6 symbols high - Hippo symbol = x2 the base value
- Reels are 7 symbols high - Hippo symbols = x3 the base value
- Reels are 8 symbols high - Hippo symbols = x4 the base value
If all the reels are unlocked during the free spins feature, 2 additional spins will be credited.
Along with the free spins, HippoPop™ also offers the following features;
- Bonus Wheel
Each time a winning combination is created the winning symbol will pop and is replaced by 2 additional symbols increasing the reel height. The reels have the ability to expand from 3 up to 6 symbols talls during the main game and 8 symbols during the free spins feature.
Before the free spins begin, players will be met with a bonus wheel! Although players are guaranteed to be rewarded with 5 free spins, the bonus wheel provides players with an additional chance to increase the number as displayed below.
• Wheel Level 1: players have the chance to win an additional 0- 4 Free Spins • Wheel Level 2 (only if the first wheel succeeds): players have the chance to win an additional 0-5 Free Spins
Look and feel of HippoPop™
AvatarUX never disappoints when it comes to creating PopWin™ slots. HippoPop™ is a vibrant psychedelic slot game based in the jungle and looks similar to what people would describe as an Acid trip.
The symbols are denoted by wacky looking hippos, flamingos, frogs, birds, zebras, fish and a bear-like animal. The lowest paying symbols are illustrated by A, K, Q and J in vibrant colors.
The slot game overall is a delight to play and offers players plenty of entertainment and fun. There is not much to be negative about and just like the other series, I can see HippoPop™ being another popular addition.
