Hippo Bingo Review

Rating: 3.9/5

Rating: 3.9/5

Hippo Bingo is a fun Dragonfish bingo site that has been around for getting on for a decade.  As Dragonfish bingo sites go, it’s got an excellent selection of bingo rooms.

Hippo Bingo

Hippo Bingo was originally fronted by a cute cartoon character, Hetti the Hippo, but she was removed in 2017 (just leaving her habitat behind) after the Gambling Commission told operators not to use cartoon characters to promote gambling and is not even in evidence inside the lobby.

What you WILL find inside the lobby is a lineup of bingo rooms that goes beyond the core rooms found at every Dragonfish bingo site. Take the 90 ball area – as well as the ubiquitous Top of the Shop and Flip It, Hippo Bingo has Pennies Make £s, The Big Night In and Wacky Wings, all of which are shared with just a few other sites.  There’s also invitation only weekly and monthly specials; you can find details about all of these in the Offers area of the lobby.

The player rewards system at Hippo Bingo is based on what you deposited and spent the previous week; the lower of the two determines your level and the lowest level starts at a deposit/spend of £25.  Rewards include bonus spins, free bingo tickets to invitation only rooms and spins of the Hippo Wheel (unusually for a promotion of this type, each wheel segment has an equal chance of winning).  Further information about all of this is in the Rewards area of the lobby, and there’s also an Inbox where you’ll find notifications of new games and fresh promotions.  So quite a lot going on.

Finally there is the Slots area of the lobby and Hippo Bingo does not disappoint, although it doesn’t have quite as many games as some other Dragonfish sites.  It has plenty of progressive jackpots courtesy of Eyecon, a Slingo section, and an area for seasonal games as well as New and Popular games where you can look first if you don’t know what to play.  Games can also be searched for by name.

All in all, Hippo Bingo still has plenty to offer players despite its age, and works particularly well on mobile devices.

  1. I wagered my tenner and got my bonus. Got the money upto £110 and couldn’t withdraw any. Had to play pound spins for wagering requirements but lost it all before i could withdraw.I now feel cheated. Will not be playing again

    1. All Dragonfish network sites now have this type of arrangement; it used to be possible to withdraw winnings without completing the wagering requirement (although you would lose any remaining bonus) but as of September 2015 winnings go into the bonus bankroll and stay there until the wagering is done.
