The loading page’s “play” icon redirects to the HippoPop’s regular 5X3 grid—flexible, frameless, celled and pays two-way—whose background is a light green-lit magical jungle. HippoPop has lowly total bets: $0.2 (minimum bet), $0.3, $0.5, $0.7, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $7.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, and $40.00 (maximum bet).

The HippoPop’s eleven ordinary-only symbols consists of four card values and seven caricatured animals: glowing golden hippopotamus, glowing pink flamingo, glowing green tiger, golden-eyed zebra, purple frog, perched golden toucan, blue fish, golden A, red K, emerald Q, and purple J.

The HippoPop’s payouts are lowly.

Three A, K, Q, or J pay X0.2; four A, K, Q, or J pay X0.5; and five A, K, Q, or J pay X1.
Three fish, toucans, or frogs pay X0.3; four fish, toucans, or frogs pay X0.8; and five fish, toucans, or frogs pay X1.5.
Three zebras, tigers or flamingos pay X0.4; four zebras, tigers or flamingos pay X1; and five zebras, tigers or flamingos pay X2.

The symbols involved in the wins vanish, creating spaces for more cascading symbols in the doubled empty cells. The grid-changing process—3+ reels enlarge from either direction; progressively increases the winning ways—continues until the regular games’ final 5X6 grid or the free games’ final 5X8 grid.

The 5X8 grid (has +2 free games) is exclusive to the minimum five free games (its grid reverts to the shortest reel’s size) activated by the 5X6 grid, which also (like in the free games) triggers the cumulative multipliers (transferrable from regular to free games modes) counter that rise by +1.

The 5X8 grid’s three, four, and five-of-a-kind hippos pay X4, X8, and X16.

Whether triggered or purchased the five beginning free games can be gambled twice using a golden picker wheel whose cyan spanner may pinpoint the nullifying red, “+2” or “+4” or “+5” segments, offering the maximum twelve free games.
