Lucky Hippo Casino

The way you feel bears no relation to how you might fare when you play games at Lucky Hippo Casino. However, the casino does look cool with a Vegas backdrop at the top of the home page, and it has lots more to offer as well.

We thought we would take a deeper dive into its presentation, games, and promotions. In doing so, we’re going to cover all the areas you may have queriesa about before you play at Lucky Hippo Casino.

Backed by a solid software company

The software is important because it tells you who supplies the games at this casino. In the case of Lucky Hippo, the name you need to know is Realtime Gaming. They’re also called RTG, but either way, it’s the same company.

What do we think of the lobby?

You’ll soon realize this is an instant play casino, offering many RTG titles in one easy to access place. The lobby gives you a straightforward way to find all those titles, from the table games to the slots and some video poker to specialty games. They even have a section for progressives if you want to play those. Within minutes of finding your way there, you’ll know how to get to your favorite games.

Join the casino by hitting the REGISTER button

They have displayed this in the top right corner of the website, so it takes just a second to spot it and go through to that section. The usual signup process will then begin, giving you a chance to create your account so you can play.

Signup restrictions for Lucky Hippo Casino

The casino won’t accept anyone under the age of 18, although they make it clear that you must be of legal age in your jurisdiction. That means the required age may be higher than the minimum displayed at Lucky Hippo.

You must also make sure you live somewhere that would allow you to use this casino. This is clarified in point 3 of the general terms in the T&C portion of the site. You can reach and reach this from the bottom menu at the website. They do not go into detail about which countries may or may not be permitted, so you must check your own state or countrywide laws to confirm your eligibility.

Games from RTG

All the games in the collection come from Realtime Gaming. That should tell you how promising the collection is. You’ll be able to explore all the titles inside the instant play casino whenever you wish. The games include lots revolving around cards, such as pontoon, blackjack, and Pai Gow poker. You’ve also got many versions of video poker, played with different hand quantities.

Choose your best slots

The casino offers slot games of many types. You can narrow the options if you wish, allowing you only to look for three-reel games or five-reel games, for example. They even have a few with six reels. Searching for those with bonus rounds or progressive prizes is straightforward as well… another reason to check out Lucky Hippo Casino, we believe.

Free games in demo mode

It is wise to understand that the free games at Lucky Hippo are those that offer practice spins rather than real ones. You may occasionally receive bonuses with free spins involved, and these will be for the real game. However, you can enter practice mode on any game you wish, just to try it out for a while.

Lots of paid games for all budgets

The great thing about playing at Lucky Hippo Casino with all its games is that there is always a title to suit your available budget. Penny slots are easy enough to find, but there are many other games with larger coin values involved as well.

New slot games at Lucky Hippo Casino

While there isn’t a category in the main menu for new games, you will see them at the bottom of the instant play casino. There were a half dozen games there when we viewed this area. This seems common enough as we have checked out this casino before and spotted the same quantity of games – always the last six to be released.

Go through to the promotions from the main menu

When you arrive at Lucky Hippo Casino, you will see the menu spread across the top of the site in a red bar. The second option within that bar is the promotions area.

You can also see the so-called ‘triple welcome bonus’ underneath that section. This covers your first three deposits after signing up. You can receive a maximum of $9,000 across the three amounts if you make the best of it. Never deposit more than your budget would allow though.

We can also report that several other deals were inside the promo area on our recent visit to the casino. Among them were some other deposit bonuses offering free spins on named games, too. They also confirmed the presence of weekly bonuses for existing players, so once you have signed up and claimed your welcome deal, you know there are other deals yet to come.

Slot tournaments also make the grade

The menu does not have a dedicated area for the tournaments. However, we can confirm there are some to look forward to. The casino reveals this in the ‘even more bonuses’ area underneath all the other promotions on that page. Once you are a member of Lucky Hippo Casino, who knows how many tournaments you may feel ready to enter?

Casino winners do not appear on the home page

Or anywhere else that we could see.

Rewards from the VIP Club

This gets a mention in the menu, and this confirms there are four levels going from Silver Plus to Diamond Elite. The only thing they do not confirm is how you enter this. Is the basic level open to everyone? It’s not clear.

Mobile and app accessibility

You won’t need an app if you want to visit Lucky Hippo Casino on your tablet or smartphone. None is supplied, and you can easily go to the website without adjusting any settings. Just use your mobile browser – the website adjusts to suit whichever size screen you are using.

Play without registration by selecting a demo game

Go through to the instant play casino and choose one of the games there. The demo will load for you, meaning that you can easily try it without betting any real cash on it. You do not even need an account at Lucky Hippo to do this. We tested it with a few games, hopping from one to the next. We were not asked for an account or login at any point.

Instant play makes life a lot easier

Yes, because you never need to download anything. This also means you can play on any computer or device whenever you wish. You never need to worry about downloading to play on something else. One login works across all devices you might use.

What about becoming an affiliate?

You can do this if you wish; the program is handled by Main Street Affiliates, giving you simple access to the program. If you want to visit that site, you can do so via the link in the bottom menu area.

Sporting services, betting, and bookies… none here

The lucky hippo doesn’t have any interest in any of these areas, so you don’t need to worry about any of those.

No blog/forum area

Few casinos have these, so we were not surprised to find Lucky Hippo Casino didn’t dip its toes into this area either.

Live dealer games don’t appear here

RTG doesn’t deal in these games, so it wasn’t a shock to find that Lucky Hippo didn’t have any of these available.

Deposits via a few methods

And there really aren’t too many options here – you’ve got Visa, MasterCard, and Bitcoin… and that’s it.

Making a withdrawal is best done via Bitcoin

This qualifies as the only method appearing in both the deposit and withdrawal areas of the banking page. You can also ask for a check to be mailed or couriered to you, or a direct deposit into your bank account.

Bitcoin is fee-free

As are the other methods for depositing and withdrawing, but the convenience of Bitcoin is going to make it the top choice for many.

Look for assistance via chat if you can

The site does offer live chat, but it is not always available. Fortunately, you can always leave a message if you are online and they are not. You can also select the department to handle your query.

If you are expecting an FAQ area though, you will be disappointed – as we were. This is one thing they could add to help players with some queries.
