Online Pokies for Australian Players
A vast number of online pokies can be found in every fully licensed Australian online casino and these games range from having 3 reels and 1 winning payline (known as classic pokies) to having 5 reels and multiple winning paylines or multiple ‘ways to win’ (known as video pokies). The best online pokies in the world have been developed by companies like Microgaming, Playtech, Net Entertainment and Realtime Gaming.
These games are available in the real money mode and in the free play mode and they can be launched instantly in your browser or from within a secure download client. You can find a variety of different themes such as action themed pokies, sports themed pokies, ancient Egyptian themed pokies, lucky Irish themed pokies, love & romance themed pokies, UFO/space/science fiction themed pokies, and various other popular themes.
Some of the most popular online pokies are the branded ones which are based on famous characters, popular television series, Hollywood blockbuster movies or on Marvel & DC Comic heroes. Other popular branded pokies are based on well-known board games. New online pokies arrive almost every week and the pokies with the biggest prizes to play for are known as Progressive Jackpot Pokies.
These games are really easy to play. All you need to do is set your stake, play with the full amount of paylines active and then hit spin. A prize will then be awarded when three or more matching symbols appear across any of the active paylines. Wild Symbols can substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols and these Wild Symbols basically help generate line wins that otherwise weren’t there. Bonus Symbols can trigger a second screen bonus round and Scatter Symbols can trigger a Free Spins Bonus Round and/or some kind of guaranteed coin prize.
Online pokies have wide betting ranges to cater for all budgets and once you have learned how to play on one pokie, the rest will be just as easy to play. When a bonus round triggers, you generally have to pick objects by clicking on them to reveal hidden prizes. Sometimes these second screen bonus rounds have more than one level of play to win prizes from and you generally have to be betting max per spin to be in with a chance of triggering a bonus round or a progressive jackpot.
