How to play
The slot allows bets from $0.10 to $10. It has one pay-line and one coin will be wagered each spin. Clicking Spin starts the game. This classic slot features 1 reel and 1 pay-line, and a non-progressive jackpot.
Hiphopopotamus has a large variety of randomly triggered extras. Each spin that you make gives you the chance to receive up to 4 nudges. By clicking on the arrows above the reels you can take a sneak peak at the next symbols. Other randomly triggered nudge options are: gamble nudges, repeat them, or bank them for the next spin. To nudge a reel you have to click on the corresponding button that will be flashing under the reel window. Another randomly awarded perk is to hold a reel. Select the reel that you want to hold using the flashing button, and click on Spin. With these two great features you can significantly increase your winning possibilities. When you do not get a winning combination, after a spin, the Shifta feature can be triggered randomly. One reel is held, and the others moved until a winning combination occurs. Another random feature is Funk You Up. During this event you have to decide when to stop the flashing information window, and you will be awarded the prize corresponding to the symbol it reveals. Getting a winning combination on the reels also activates the Scratches feature during which you can double the round’s prize money.
The Hi/Lo bonus game is started when symbols that have numbers appear on the pay-line. You advance along the trail until ‘Start’ is reached. In the bonus game you have to select whether the next number is higher or lower than the number shown on the board. When you win you receive the next available award on the board. You can repeat this process, or collect your prize. Guessing the number wrong ends the game.
The slot also offers a Reel bonus game that starts when you receive symbols with a bonus label. In this game you can win random bonus features such as Boost, Skillshot, Stoppa, Selector and the Hi/Lo bonus game.
