You play on a slot that has 5 reels and with the help of the PopWins mechanic, 3 rows can be up to 8 rows. As a result, 486 paylines can be up to 65,536 paylines. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 40. HippoPop has an RTP of 96.1% and a high volatility. The lucky player can win up to 48150X the bet.
It is a very cool place that we have ended up in, where incredibly well-thought-out color choices together with the shimmering symbols create a superb atmosphere for the spins. Where the lower paying symbols are J, Q, K and A. The medium paying symbols are a fish, a parrot and a frog in sculpted glass. The higher paying symbols consist of a zebra, a tiger and a flamingo, where with their shining eyes they certainly catch one's attention. There is also a symbol that pays even higher than these and that is the hippo, where 5 of these in a winning combination gives 4X the bet. The great thing about this is that within the free spins feature, the value of the hippos can increase even more. Let's find out what the different features do.
In this slot, we head far into the deep jungle, to a place where a giant slot awaits along with exciting symbols. Where these symbols have been influenced by Oaxacan's delightful type of designs. It is a place where you can not only find good symbols, you can also find big wins. The game's max win is 48150X the bet and it will be possible to get with the help of the slots exciting features. Where these features are PopWins, multiplier, Bonus wheel and free spins.
When you spin the reels and get 3 of the same symbol types on adjacent reels, starting at the far left, you get to partake in the PopWins mechanic. It is with the help of this mechanic that the number of paylines can increase to 65536, as each symbol included in a winning combination will disappear and then be replaced by 2 symbols. This means that the rows can increase in number to a maximum of 6 rows in the base game and 8 rows in the free spins feature. As long as new winning combinations are created, new symbols continue to land, which can be a real delight for the eyes just like when cascades take place.
There is also a possibility to activate a win multiplier and you do this by activating 6 rows on all reels. The multiplier you then receive will increase by 1X for each extra win made after the max limit of the reels has been reached. The fun thing about this multiplier is that once you activate it, it will accompany you on upcoming spin adventures.
Since you activate the free spins feature by filling all the reels in the base game with 6 rows. Your base game multiplier will then be applied to the wins throughout the free spins feature. The magical thing is that the multiplier won’t reset and can instead only increase by 1X for each win.
Before you can start spinning, you must spin on a Bonus wheel that determines how many free spins you should get. You are always guaranteed to get 5 free spins and the first reel shows 0 to 4 extra free spins. If you manage to land extra free spins, you get to spin on another wheel that shows 0 to 5 extra free spins. After this, it's time to start spinning the reels, where you may have received up to 14 free spins using the Bonus wheel. You can also manage to get two extra free spins in the Bonus feature by fully unlocking the reels.
There is certainly a reason why they named this slot after the hippo symbol, as it comes with wonderful features within the bonus game. The value of the hippo symbol will increase differently depending on how many rows you have created on all the reels. If all reels have 6, 7 or 8 rows, then the value of the hippo symbol increases by 2X, 3X and 4X respectively for the remaining spins.
But like the other PopWins slots, the reel height will be able to decrease between the spins. It then decreases to the same size as the lowest reel has.
If you want to go directly to the free spins feature, you can use the Buy Bonus feature. You then pay 85X your bet and get 5 free spins with 2X to 4X multiplier. If you want to gamble, there is the possibility of getting 7 free spins with a chance of 2 extra at level 2. Where the multiplier can be 4X to 6X. If you instead go to level 3, you can get 9 free spins with a chance of 3 extra. Where the multiplier can be 6X to 10X. If you gamble in the hope of more free spins and do not succeed, you will return to the base game without playing the free spins feature.
