History, Ownership and Operator Details

Play Hippo is a very original online casino that has been active since 2012. After spending a large amount of funds on advertising, the casino has established itself as a top online casino brand and accommodates players from different parts of the world. The operator of this casino is perfectly aware that advertising is not enough for players to stick around, which is why it adheres to the high industry standards in order to offer its members a quality service.

This casino is based and licensed in Malta and has an EU gaming license, but it is also licensed in Curacao through the Microgaming software, which means the casino is regulated and monitored from several strong licensing jurisdictions. The casino itself has a very positive vibe and has a hippo mascot through which all the services are advertised and offered. This is a practice that only few casinos implement, and usually those are the more playful casinos that lack the elitism touch. Instead Play Hippo likes for all of its casino players to feel friendly and close to it. The operator of this casino is EveryMatrix Ltd., a proven and reliable operator of a dozen other top casinos.

This casino uses the Microgaming Quickfire platform

with Flash and HTML5 mobile game play options.

Unique Features

Play Hippo is a unique gambling site in itself, but something that you might love with this casino besides the selection of games and payment methods, which is huge, are the trip promotions. When you become a member of the Hippo VIP Club you will have the chance to take part in various promotions where players are awarded with trips around the world. Many exotic destinations have been offered in the past, such as tropical beaches, cities around the world with legendary casinos etc.

Play Hippo Casino offers more than 600 exciting casino games from the best online casino software providers.
