Yggdrasil and AvatarUX Unveil New Game 'HippoPop'

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Slot designer AvatarUX has announced that they've released their newest video slot 'HippoPop', which was developed in conjunction with Yggdrasil through its YG Masters program.

The game is a 5 reel slot that's set in a dense jungle complete with various critters. Players will find a whopping 65,536 ways to win in this game, and with Yggdrasil branding this game as "hyper volatile", there's likely to be big swings in the wins when they do come to play out. The slot's features include the PopWins mechanic, which sees a winning combination popping and creating two new symbols. These can retrigger and keep generating wins until winning icons stop being formed.

HippoPop is being distributed through Yggdrasil's GATI platform, and it carries a 96.1% RTP (return to player) percentage, which is about average for an online slot.

A preview of the game can be seen below:

"AvatarUX's PopWins™ content has been a huge success and the titles were some of our top-performers last year with players really enjoying the mechanics that offer an element of daring and excitement," said Yggdrasil's Stuart McCarthy. "HippoPop™ is another smashing hit in the PopWins™ series with a unique theme and exciting features that will have players entertained as they spin the reels to unlock the game's powerful payout potential."

AvatarUX's Managing Director Marcus Honney added: "Along with a feelgood summer vibe and HippoPop™'s quirky theme, it is also fused with advanced slot mechanics to create one of the smartest and most fun games of the year.

"The fusion of epic themes and powerful bonus mechanics, makes HippoPop™ a must have slot for online casinos looking to deliver in-demand games."

You can test your luck with HippoPop now at casinos that offer Yggdrasil's slot products.
