If you like playing slot games and have a thing for wildlife, then you should check out the latest slot release from AvatarUX called “HippoPo“. This is one of the lesser known developers in the gaming industry but has received attention in the past for its PopWins mechanic.
The PopWins mechanic is a mainstay for AvatarUX games and their latest slot also integrates it.
HippoPop takes players into the jungle so that they might encounter different wild animals, especially the hippo. The game’s lush jungle background and bright colors only highlight the great graphics of this slot offering.
The game features a 5×3 grid right in the middle of the bright visuals, and the unique colors make it stand out. Initially, there are 485 ways to win, which is pretty impressive. Matched with the $1,926,000 jackpot, players can enjoy a big payout here if they get lucky.
Players will be familiar with the low-value card royals. There are also the thematic symbols of various animals. This includes a parrot, a fish, a zebra, a frog, a flamingo and a tiger. The most valuable symbol is the hippo.
The betting range in this game is not impressive It starts at $0.20 and goes up only to $40. Players who want to bet big will not like the low limits. However, this slot is ideal for those slot players who have a limited bankroll.
The interesting thing about this game is that there are no Wilds and Scatters. The bonuses that it features depend more on other mechanics. First, there is the replacement feature. Players who get a winning combination will see the symbols disappear and be replaced by two symbols for each that won. This can result in new wins.
Additionally, every win will see the game add more rows. During the base game, players can get up to six rows for this game. It can even go to eight rows when it is the bonus round. The additional bonus is that when the rows reach six, a multiplier feature is added. More wins mean that the multiplier increases.
When the reels are fully expanded, players then get free spins. A bonus wheel will appear to help determine how many free spins the player will get. There is a guarantee of at least five free spins and it can go up to nine. During the free spins, players will have a maximum of 65536 ways to win. HippoPo has an RTP of 96.1 percent.
