Hippo bingo was launched in 2011 on to the Dragonfish network. Hetti is the loveable hippo that the design of this bingo site has been based on. The design and layout is very good and overall the site looks very appealing. Navigation is very simple and a quick look at the promotions will tell you that this is just another Dragonfish bingo site set of promotions and nothing to get excited about. However, it is still worth investigating further…
The registration process is very easy with just one page of personal details that needs to be filled in. Once done you’ll find yourself in the lobby which looks similar to other bingo sites on this network but also different. The graphics used means that is it different from its competitors and there is the added menu tab of ‘Hetti’s Specials’ where you’ll find a number of unique and different bingo rooms. Hippo bingo has 90-ball, 75-ball and High 5 bingo games powered by 888 Holdings’ Dragonfish platform, which is a well-respected brand in the industry. While 90-ball bingo is the classic British style of the game, and 75-ball the pattern-based American alternative, High 5 challenges you to cover a complete line of five spaces in any direction across the ticket, with bigger prizes the more lines you manage to make. There is a good selection of ticket prices which start at 1p and go all the way up to £1 and of course not forgetting the free bingo with real cash prizes.
Look out also for Team Bingo tournaments, giving you the chance to team up with your favourite competitors to turn them from opponents into allies. Join a Team Bingo tournament within the first week of the month, and you and three colleagues can count towards your running total each time you hit bingo in any of the site’s games. If your team comes out on top at the end of the month, you can expect an impressive award – such as a million loyalty points, for example.
And if you’d rather not rely on others to help you win, there are plenty of normal bingo games to take part in, as well as those big-name online slots that dominate the main page. Keep an eye out for Hettie the Hippo’s Hot Slot promo, which rewards you for playing certain titles on the site, as well as her free bingo games and regular parties for newcomers to the site.
Check the winners’ page for proof of the lucrative payouts given away by Hippo Bingo on a daily basis – the total winnings in 24 hours frequently reach hundreds of thousands of pounds, with individual payouts in the thousands or tens of thousands. Up top, there’s a clear total amount for yesterday’s games, so you can keep track of how much is being won, and hopefully claim your share.
Our final thoughts and views for this hippo bingo review. This is a Dragonfish bingo site which is trying to be different. The lobby area is easy to use and different plus there is the welcome addition of some unique bingo rooms and prizes which really makes this something different and stands out from the crowd.
