Back AvatarUX and Yggdrasil Introduce Latest PopWins Creation – HippoPop

Sixth PopWins Creation is Even More Dazzling

As announced, Yggdrasil is back this month with an entirely new project, developed in partnership with AvatarUX, part of the YG Masters franchise. The pioneering game builders have presented another PopWins creation called HippoPop – a vibrant and dreamlike slot full of mythical neon animals, totems, landscapes and shiny pops!

Based on Oaxacan arts and traditional wood carvings, the studio’s latest slot offering represents an authentic psychedelic gaming experience, enriched with 65,536 ways to win.

The Power of PopWins

Coming in hot right after Gator Gold Gigablox and Jaguar SuperWays, the provider’s latest project in the pipeline, HippoPop, is set deep within a rich jungle, featuring the popular PopWins mechanic where winning combinations pop and create two new symbols for an increased chance of multiple wins.

This title uses the power of PopWins to expand the rows of the game from five to eight, maximizing the ways to win to 65,536. Aside from its in-built mechanics, HippoPop also comes with a host of exciting attractions, including multipliers, Hippo Payouts and the Bonus Wheel.

As the studio reveals, increasing the reels to six symbols high in the base game will trigger complimentary rounds. During this mode players are presented with a colorful bonus wheel whose options present a chance to collect even more spins than five, which are awarded by default.

On top of that, the feature starts with the final multiplier carried over from the base game. Each winning pop-round during honorary spins lifts the multiplier by one.

However, landing a golden Hippo during extra spins can increase the payout up to 4x the base value for the rest of the round. Alongside Hippo symbols, players will also see pink flamingos, green panthers, zebras, frogs, toucans and fish.

After many successful editions, such as BountyPop, Wild Pops and PopRocks, HippoPop is finally out to shake up the industry as the sixth edition of AvatarUX. The studio’s highly popular PopWins series have been well accepted with players around the world and enjoy a huge fan base in many territories.

A Touch of GATI

Just like all the previous installments, this game is released via YG Masters program and it is powered by GATI, Yggdrasil’s powerful technology that enables partners such as DreamTech, Peter & Sons, 4ThePlayer and other providers to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardized development toolkit and produce cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

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 Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil.

According to McCarthy, the game has a lot of perspective and it could become another smashing hit in the PopWins series thanks to its unique theme and exciting features. Players will be entertained as they spin the reels and unlock the game’s powerful payout potential, concluded head of partner programs.

Meanwhile, Marcus Honney, managing director at AvatarUX, commented that a feelgood summer vibe and HippoPop’s quirky theme make it “one of the smartest and most fun games” of the year.

The maximum payout in HippoPop is €1,926,000.
