Selection of games is fantastic but that's about it.
Been playing with this casino for years. Their withdrawals are unreliable and take forever. I have been verified for 3 years a single withdraw for just 100 has taken 5 days to process and 7 to appear in my account. Their customer service staff are rude and don't solve anything I'd be surprised if they could tie a shoe lace. My account is now closed and I won't be using it again.
Hippodrome is an entirely new casino for me to try out! As the name of the casino I find it to be a weird name. It sounds like a cross between "Hippopotamus", something with a D word and "Chrome". Possibly "Hippos Dumping Chrome".
As Hippodrome is a Microgaming platform I have nothing against it, after all it is my all time favourite software and with Hippodrome stating they are London's Iconic Casino that gives me a lot of reassurance because anything from the UK is well trusted and golden. What I found is Hippodrome did not have a download version for me to load up onto my desktop. This turned out to be both an advantage and disadvantage. The Advantages are I can just play on their website with no waiting for the download to complete and Live casino at my disposable which sounded new because a lot of Microgaming casinos do not have (and if this were already out why was I not properly informed?) this feature. The Disadvantages of this is I won't be able to play on games found on the download version like Sneak a Peak - Doctor Doctor or Planet Exotica. As this may act like a killjoy to me there was something to make up for the lack of games. At least Hippodrome had Megaspin - Break Da Bank Again and any games I would not find in the download version. I'm talking about Magic Boxes, Alaxe in Zombieland and Snake Charmer.
Since I still had a lot of cash to throw down I decided to use my loaded Mastercard to make a deposit for $100. With bonuses offered to me I did not opt for them seeing is how they would get in my way and not only that but I did not want to risk $100 towards wagering requirements. With my $100 I started playing on The Finer Reels of Life. It took a long while (about 19 spins) under a $1.20 bet per spin before I can trigger the first feature called Coffee and Chocolate. This is exactly the same feature found under Thunderstruck II (Valkyries feature) for 10 Free Spins at 5x. Now if they incorporated something else into the first feature I would be more into it (Random Wilds appearing anywhere with the normal wilds or the respin + 2x Wild feature from Muse, a NetEnt slot). The total win I got from the first trigger is $34.79. I saw two scattered stars within the feature but it never caught me a retrigger to award another set of 10 Free Spins. The feature only gave me a little cash over my first 22 spins to about over $11. That basically covered my initial spins.
I then switched to Megaspin - Break Da Bank Again to find a lot of Vaults showing up to give me jjust half of my $1.80. One feature came to give me $60.50 with the help of the Break Da Bank Wild giving me 25x my wins. Now I would like to see 5 Sapphires with a 25x Wild inside this feature some day. I wonder how much I could win if getting this on Max bet? Since the road became too muddy (wins were lowering) I had to try a different slot. Snake Charmer came in next. I found this slot to be very interesting because the feature gave me 10 Free Spins where every spin a charmed expanding snake would appear to increase my winnings. At times they appeared in twos, on rare occasions threes (2 together and one apart or all three altogether). I must point out that I got a bit dizzy just looking at the rainbow coloured swirling background when the charmed snakes appeared. But what I hated the most is when these charmed expanding snake appeared on Reel 5. This was entirely futile to me unless it completed 4 symbols with the expanding wild to complete a 5 combination win. I got $38.85 from the 10 Free Spins in just a $1.25 bet per spin. I was now up to $206.38. I later continued on two other slots, Age of Discovery and Girls with Guns - Jungle Heat. I climbed to $302.17 thanks to the pick bonus in Age of Discovery. One thing that became horrific in one of the triggers is I got a bonus and on my second pick I got a skull which ended my feature with $7.50.But the second and third trigger on AOD made up for this after carefully avoiding those ending skulls.
I did like my experience here in Hippodrome but it was lacking the download version. This was just the only problem I had. Overall, I will come back to seize more delectable wins. Girls with Guns were really playing hard to get when I tried to trigger the Free Spins. A 9.5 out of 10!
