Hippodrome is one of the most famous casinos in London - located in Leicester Square. This stylish casino launched an online casino with the same name. With an online presence, this well-known UK casino is now accessible to online players the world over. The casino features a wide range of exciting games, rewarding promotions and top-notch customer support. In addition, Hippodrome Casino launched a mobile gaming platform that is compatible with a wide range of mobile gaming devices.
The Hippodrome Online Casino’s ongoing promotions include opportunities to pick up extra winnings on specific days of the week and add to your Loyalty Points for the VIP scheme detailed below. There are also promotions that are specific to particular games - hopefully including your favourites.
Range of Casino Games
The Hippodrome Online Casino offers over 450 games, the impressive variety of which includes:
- Slots (530+) including Immortal Romance, Life of Riches and licensed titles like Game Of Thrones
- Live Games (10) with roulette, blackjack, baccarat and three-card poker all represented
- Jackpot Games (15) including Mega Moolah, Treasure Nile and Major Millions
- Blackjack (20) including Classic, European Blackjack Gold and Multi Vegas Downtown
- Roulette (10) such as European, American and French Roulette
- 'Other' Games (15) including Red Dog, Enchanted Woods and Flip Card
The other options include video poker and Vegas games. The site is also well-supplied with blackjack games.
The breadth of the gaming options is impressive. Microgaming, the casino's only software partner, provides many of the online casino games that you would expect; however, we are also delighted with the live offerings, which even extend to Dream Catcher and Stud Poker.
The casino also has a mobile app called Hippodrome Mobile Casino. Still, keep in mind that, while this app is free and would let you use your desktop Hippodrome account, the quantity and choice of games to play through this app is significantly lower than what the site offers.
Software and Graphics
The graphical appearance of the Hippodrome site certainly befits the reputation built up by the bricks-and-mortar casino. The site looks classy, and everything loads smoothly as you click through the options.
You should appreciate that speed as you access the games themselves, all of which allow in-browser play. Nonetheless, many of those games require you to register to the casino; furthermore, not all games can be played for free.
This online casino actually takes the Hippodrome name from the offline casino of the same name in London. That building has been around since 1900 and was opened as a casino in 2012.
It shouldn't seriously surprise, then, that the online casino acts on this unique arrangement by running promotions that tie in with the bricks-and-mortar offering. Therefore, you could benefit from frequenting both places and see what winnings result.
The site operates the Hippodrome Rewards Club. Membership of this club will enable you to collect Loyalty Points when playing at the casino. You can then exchange Loyalty Points for free Casino Credits. The more you play, the higher Reward Level you can reach.
New players start at the Red tier and can climb to Silver level upon amassing 5,000 Loyalty Points. The next levels up are Emerald, Platinum, Diamond and Privé, which requires 2,500,000 Loyalty Points.
Deposit / Withdrawal Methods
Whether you deposit or withdraw, there is a minimum limit of £10. Below are details of the available payment methods and what limits they impose, although the casino itself may set different limits.
