Bonuses & Promotions

The Welcome Offer

  • 4x bingo bonus wagering requirement

 After you sign up for a new account, Hippo Bingo UK players get a 200% deposit match on your first deposit as a signup bonus. The minimum deposit to claim the Welcome Bonus is £10, and you can claim as much as £200. Your bonus is only valid for use in 75 ball and 90 ball bingo rooms.

The bingo bonus comes with a 4x wagering requirement, which means that if you claim the full £200 bonus, you need to wager £800 on bingo tickets before you can cash out any winnings from your bingo bonus. If you make a withdrawal before you meet the playthrough, you forfeit any of the remaining bonus and the winnings from it.

With this signup offer, we would recommend investing the minimum i.e., £10 so that you can begin playing with £30. To clear the bonus in this case, you would need to wager £80 on bingo tickets (4 x £20), which should provide most players with enough time to check out the site and all the games in full.

Ongoing Specials & VIP Program

Every time you play at Hippo Bingo, you earn loyalty points, and the more points you earn, the higher you progress through the 4 tiers of membership: Rookie, Pro, Master or Champion. The rewards you can redeem your loyalty points for include bingo and slots cash back bonuses, extra spins, and tickets for the big £10K Sure Win game.

There are also regular scheduled games with low ticket prices and guaranteed jackpot prizes, like Late Night Show, Big Night In and Pennies Make Pounds.

Games & Software

You can play in 32 different bingo rooms at Hippo Bingo, which means you have outstanding choice when it comes to game styles and ticket prices. The games include 90 ball, 75 ball and 5-line bingo, and tickets start from as little as 1p. There are also free bingo rooms, including the Daily Doozey where newbies can play for cash prizes for free, as well as big money jackpot games played at set times every day of the week.

Games are played 24/7, with a new game starting every couple of minutes, but if you can’t get to your phone or laptop to log in, you can pre-buy tickets for your favourite games in advance.

Slots & Casinos

There are almost 500 Hippo Casino slots and casino games to choose from, with games by a range of leading developers such as NetEnt, IGT and 888.

There are more than 450 video and themed slots that you can play, including well-known and popular titles such as Starburst, Planet of the Apes, Foxin’ Wins and Doctor Love. There is also a selection of big payout progressive jackpot slots, like Diamonds Delight and Fluffy Favourites, plus a big collection of Slingo games, where both bingo and slots are combined into a single game.

You can also play Hippo Bingo casino games like blackjack and roulette, as well as scratch cards and video poker games.

How to Deposit & Cash Out

Depositing

The payment methods that you can use at Hippo Bingo include PayPal, EntroPay and PaySafe Card, alongside wire transfer and debit/credit cards. The minimum deposit amount is £10, and funds are available to play with in your casino account immediately. There are no fees for using of the above payment methods.

Cashing out

The minimum withdrawal amount is £5, and you are required to withdraw using the same method as you used for deposits (where this isn’t possible, you will be sent a cheque). All withdrawal requests will be subject to a 48-hour processing period, after which your funds will be released on the next working day. There are no fees charged for making withdrawals using these methods.

Having PayPal available as a payment method is a good option, as is the inclusion of EntroPay, although it would be helpful if the better-known e-wallets, like Neteller and Skrill, were also accepted.

 The Community

Although the availability of chat room hosts will vary depending on the room you choose and the hour of the day at which you play, we have found the moderators here to be some of the very best we’ve encountered. In particular, the hosts in the free bingo rooms for newbies are very engaging and helpful and do a good job of helping to make new players feel at home.

It’s also very helpful that there’s a winners list, that shows you which have been the most popular games recently.

We looked hard to find Hippo Bingo on social media, but unfortunately, they don’t seem to be active on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, which is a shame.

Take Hippo Bingo with You

Playing Hippo Bingo mobile games is easy to do on any sort of device, and as all games are browser based, you don’t need to download and install an app. If you have a phone or tablet with internet connectivity, including Apple iPhone or iPad, or an Android phone, you can play mobile bingo and slots directly in the browser of your device.

Navigating the Hippo Bingo app is very straightforward, with all bingo rooms easily accessible from the home screen. Once you’ve chosen your bingo room, the game screen is well configured so it’s easy to keep track of all your tickets and the progress you’re making in the game. This is a feature on both the desktop and mobile sites, but we actually like the screen layout better on the mobile version.

Our Take on Hippo Bingo

We have always had a positive playing experience here, and we especially like the fact that there is a good range of rooms offering a variety of game styles and ticket prices. With high quality Dragonfish software powering the games, you can be sure of a smooth and uninterrupted playing experience and being able to access their network of progressive jackpot games means you have the chance to play for big money.

The site is well designed and welcoming, and is always easy to navigate, and you can access the different bingo rooms quickly on any device.

Overall, we are very happy to give a Hippo Bingo review final score of 4½ stars out of 5.
