Prior to its modern day incarnation as an online casino of some repute, the Hippodrome was one of the UK’s most famous brick-and-mortar casinos, which opened its doors more than a century ago in 1900.
A stylish gaming experience meshed nicely with live entertainment from acts as legendary as Stevie Wonder, Shirley Bassey and Judy Garland, and a £40m overhaul in 2009 ensured that the glamour and sophistication can continue to this very day.
The Hippodrome branched out into online gaming in the mid-2000s and now players from across Europe and beyond can sample their diverse library of games from the comfort of their own homes. From traditional favourites like blackjack and roulette to more modern pursuits such as video poker and slots, there truly is something for everyone here.
The hallmarks of the physical Hippodrome Casino – elegance, grace and period charm – have been utilised in their online platform. Players can expect only the smoothest and coolest gaming experience. This timeless attitude, matched with a desire to innovate, results in a contemporary casino with a nod to a bygone age.
Powered by their casino partner Betway, the Hippodrome offers a collection of 450 premium titles, with everything from small buy-ins to huge progressive jackpots catered for. Three, four and five reel slots sit alongside blackjack and roulette, of which you will find classic variants as well as their European and American counterparts.
A myriad of poker tiles including Casino Hold 'Em and Pai Gow Poker and video poker titles like Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better, await card players too, as does a selection of other table games such as baccarat, craps and sic bo.
One noteworthy tool Hippodrome provides is the ability to search their hundreds of slots using the following categories for 3-reel and 5-reel slots: Action, Adventure, Animals, Around the World, Fantasy, Multiplayer, New Games, Romance, Sci Fi, Sports, Thor, and TV & Film.
Most premier online casinos offer dozens, if not hundreds, of slot titles which is great for variety but not so great for organization and search functionality. Luckily, Hippodrome offers these unique search categories for players to more easily find their favourite slot or discover some they might not have known existed.
Alongside their traditional online casino platform, The Hippodrome brings the thrill and excitement of gaming into players’ own homes via their Live Casino offering, which is filmed in HD and manned by dealers and croupiers waiting to take their next bet around the clock.
This immersive experience includes Live Roulette, Live Hold ‘Em and even Live Multiplayer Blackjack; it really is the next best thing to slipping into a tuxedo and heading out to the local casino. For players wishing to experience the unmistakeable atmosphere of a ‘real world’ casino, then the Hippodrome in London’s Leicester Square guarantees an unforgettable experience.
Alongside traditional house games and electronic machines are live poker tournaments and UK & Ireland Poker Tour events, where sponsored players Chris Gordon and Kelly Saxby may just be in attendance. For handheld fun, the Hippodrome mobile site offers a wealth of games that are housed in an intuitive layout and smart design, ensuring an experience second-to-none on Apple and Android devices.
