Hypno Hippo slot from Quasar Gaming has an African feel featuring wild and exotic animals. This game uses simple cartoon style graphics and animations, although this is not an issue with this addictive game. With an RTP of 95%, it appeals to all types of gamblers, especially with the many winning potentials of the different bonuses.
Hypno Hippo from Quasar Gaming is classed as a low-medium volatility slot that consists of 5*3 reels and 25 paylines, and the aim of this game is to line up the symbols from left to right. Possible wagers go from €0.50 to €100.00 per spin. You will see animals such as the monkey, elephant, laughing hyena and obscurely, a chicken, which is the scatter symbol. If several chickens appear at the same time, then the winnings could be multiplied by up to 50 times the initial bet, but this will not trigger any bonus feature. Whereas, if you find three wilds, the mesmerising swirling icons, the free spins round will be activated. Other symbols consist of regular playing cards A, K, Q, J and ten as well as a little grass. The elephant symbol is classed as the most profitable if you can land five across a payline the winnings are 200x your stake. With just one elephant and two monkeys, wins can be made. The Wild icon will substitute for all other symbols apart from the playing cards.
This Quasar Gaming slot has various special features including free spins. This bonus feature is triggered by the HYPNO symbol appearing three times on the reel. During this bonus round, the animals on the second, third and fourth reel start to perform like the chicken after being hypnotised by the hippo! As chickens are the scatter symbol, this will mean more winnings! Finding five chicken scatters on the reels will win you up to 50x your total wager giving a perfect chance to see big winnings. This round can be retriggered meaning up to 16 more free spins which are added to the remaining spins.
