Experienced Aussie online gambling know-how is behind this newcomer

Making its debut in the online gambling industry this week is a new RealTime Gaming powered online casino branded Hippo Jo.com. With wagering in British pounds or Euros, the newcomer is offering over eighty games and a tiered bonus structure.

New players who sign up are eligible for a 150 percent signup maxed at Euro 150 and carrying a wagering requirement of 25 x d+b. Players who return for another crack at the games can claim a 100 percent bonus maxed at Euro 100 with a wager thru’ of x 20 d+b, and on the third visit a 300 percent bonus is available maxed at Euro 300 and carrying a wagerthru’ of x40 d+b.

The site is clean and professional looking, with round-the-clock Support. In the event of any disputes that cannot be settled at casino level, the management have agreed an arrangement whereby the independent advocacy services of the experienced Casinomeister portal will be called in – a similar arrangement to that which Casinomeister has with Intercasino.

HippJo is owned by a Cyprus registered company called Trustbond Services Limited, and we can reveal that the substantial backers have retained the services of a highly experienced and respected Australian online gambling consultant.

The Terms and Conditions contain a refreshing and welcome change, which is sufficiently remarkable for us to quote here as a benchmark for other operators:

The Site Use Agreement assures players that HippoJo will never change the T&Cs retroactively. There is also a condition that says “If we [HippoJo] have made an error of fact with conditions they will be honoured until amended and published.” All versions of the T&Cs will be available from the website and will be datetime stamped for the safety of players.”

Marketing for Hippo Jo will be carried out by Four Monkeys Pty Ltd, along with day-to-day operations, affiliate and advertiser management, as well as the call centre and payments processing. The Four Monkeys team has been involved in online casinos since 1999 and origininates from the early days of the industry when it was involved in setting up an online casino for the Queensland State Government.

Unfortunately, for now Hippo Jo will not be accepting US players.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
