Our Take

PlayHippo Casino was established in 2013. It is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and the government of Curacao. Among its associated titles are Spinson, Jetbull, Caribic, Spilleren, Play Frank, GreenZorro, and several more.

The reviewed website is owned by EveryMatrix N.V., an independent company specializing in the development of sports betting software, gaming management systems, payment solutions, and more. Their headquarters are in London, and several offices are located around the globe. EveryMatrix N.V. is known for inventing operators powered by several software developers, rather than just one. Among business partners are many popular manufacturers, including Net Entertainment.

All content is available in English, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish to ensure convenient and easy gaming for SE and many other countries. Most visitors are from Turkey, Sweden, Thailand, Norway, and Poland.

The home page has information about the sign-up bonus, top promotions, recent winners, featured games, and progressive jackpots. There is a specially designed mobile version for owners of portable devices. The mobile app is another option available. It is compatible with iOS and Android, and can be downloaded from the links provided online. Other than downloading the app, the rest of the entertainment is designed to be played instantly within a browser.

The registration process should take no more than about five minutes. The sign-up button is conveniently located on the home page. Users will need to complete an online registration form with personal, contact, and banking information. A choice of nine secret questions is available to ensure higher security on the account. Once newbies indicate they agree with the terms and conditions, they can proceed to claim their bonuses, or simply deposit and play.

Our Take

There is a large selection of depositing methods. Clients can pay via Neteller, Skrill, and Ecopayz e-wallets, or by Visa or MasterCard. A prepaid Paysafecard is also an option. Bank transfer can be used for both depositing and withdrawal. Scandinavians can use Zimpler and Trustly, while Polish can pay via Dotpay.

Deposits can be made in such major world currencies as the American dollar, the Euro, or the British pound, or in one of the following options: Norwegian or Swedish krona, Polish zloty, South African rand, Australian or Canadian dollar, Turkish lira, Swiss franc, and South Korean won. All deposits must be played through at least once to avoid fees.

The advertised withdrawal time is instant to e-wallets, and from three to four days for bank transfers. Winners confirm that in most cases the cashier meets its payout deadlines. The estimated non-payment risk is low – only 3%.

The payout minimum is 10 EUR. Daily withdrawal requests should not exceed 10,000 EUR per day, which is a very high limit. Each month, the first cash-out is fee-free, and every further request attracts a 3% fee.

Our Take

The welcome bonus is provided to new accounts, and details on cash match percentage and specific amounts are available at the corresponding section of the gambling destination. The bonus play-through terms are slightly above average. Upon completion of the wagering requirements, the bonus money can be cashed out.

Players can take advantage of the cashback option. This is available to all active regulars as part of the loyalty program. Every wagered deposit results in accumulated points, which can then be transformed into real cash, once 200 points are accumulated. Every 100 points is worth one Euro.

For more promotions, there is the ClubHippo, which is accessible from the accounts. It offers free spins and other bonuses on a daily basis.

Our Take

There are up to 600 releases of all types. While the selection of table games is not that big, offering only several variations of mostly roulette and blackjack, arcades are well represented. Fans of this cohort will find plenty of scratch cards, classic arcades, bingo, and keno. There is no live dealer available at the library.

Entertainment is provided by a number of software developers, with most games coming from Net Entertainment and Microgaming. There are two lobbies: for regular and mobile adapted content.

The lobby helps players look for preferred games with the following sub-categories:

  • All games.

  • My Favorites, where everyone can collect their preferred entertainment from all those provided.

  • Popular.

  • Newest, where fresh releases from the software developers are listed.

  • Video slots, where gamers try to resist the tempting and colorful 7 Sins by Play’n GO, wander temples in search of Aztec gold with conquistador Gonzo of Gonzo’s Quest by Net Entertainment, or explore the bottom of the ocean for magic creatures with Ariana slot, plus many more.

  • Table games, offering roulette and blackjack variations, as well as baccarat, Punto Banco, and poker.

  • Classic slots, with such retro-inspired games as Cash Crazy and Roman Riches by Microgaming, Magic Love and Super Nudge 6000 by Net Entertainment, and several more.

  • Jackpot games, with millions waiting for their winners over at Fruit Fiesta and Lots a Loot by Microgaming, Golden Derby by Net Entertainment, and several more iconic progressive slots from Microgaming.

  • Scratch cards.

  • Video poker, where everyone is offered Aces and Faces or Deuces Wild, among others.

  • Other games.
