If you think HipHopopotamus is a strange name for a pokie, then you’d be right, but the pokie itself is also very strange. Although it looks like we’ve tried to spell hippopotamus and are just really bad at basic English, the astute of you will have picked up on the fact that HipHopopotamus is all about a Hip-Hop Hippo, and it’s a pokie that is well worth playing. To play HipHopopotamus for yourself, head for Spin Palace.
HipHopopotamus is awash with hip-hop images. Literally. In fact there is not a single empty space on the entire game screen, with graffiti, turn-tables, bling and more. The game’s payline info is also shown on this screen, and from here you can see that HipHopopotamus has a maximum win of 500x your stake. This is hefty jackpot, but there are bigger wins available on this pokie.
HipHopopotamus also has “nudge”, “hold” and other features that were commonly found on arcade pokies.
All of this aside, the reels themselves are very simple, with just 3 reels and 1 payline. That’s common with retro pokies of course, but the inclusion of a bonus feature is not, and HipHopopotamus has two of them.
You can bet a minimum of $0.10 and a maximum of $10 on HipHopopotamus.
The record reacts every time you land a winning payline, and this gives you the chance of doubling your winnings. There is also a main bonus feature, and you need to build up the number trail in order to unlock this. Once the feature starts you’ll head for a board game that lets you take chances with a classic Hi-Lo game, and one in which you can win extra lives and extra turns, as well as unlocking cash prizes.
HipHopopotamus is great fun and breaks the mould for retro pokies.
