Top 10 Australian Online Pokies Games
Australian players enjoy gambling in general and playing online pokies for real money in particular.
Although Australian laws prevent companies from operating online casino businesses from within Australia, they do not prohibit residents from signing up at offshore online casinos that operate under a license issued in remote gambling jurisdictions.
In other words, it is 100% legal for Aussies to sign up at Australia friendly offshore online casinos and play their favorite online pokies for real money.
Here are the top 10 online pokie games at Australian online casinos.
- Beach Life
A delightful progressive slot based on the beach theme, Beach Life is one of the most popular slots at Playtech online casinos. The slot has 20 lines and five reels populated with icons of popsicles, ice cream, snorkelers, sunbathers, and others.
The sun wild substitutes for all other symbols and helps players complete winning combinations. If players land five sun symbols along the twentieth payline, they will win the life-transforming progressive jackpot, which can become as large as $7 million. If players land five sun symbols along any of the other paylines, they will win the top fixed jackpot of 100,000 coins.
- Lotto Madness
Playtech has designed Lotto Madness to give players the experience of winning the lottery. The slot is popular because it comes with the Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot, which players can activate by placing an optional side bet. As soon as players place this side bet, the Dollar Ball Game, which is totally unrelated to the main slot game, gets activated and players have to select a few numbers at random. Players will win either the entire Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot or part of it depending on how many of players’ numbers match the numbers drawn at random.
The game has a top fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins that can be won by lining five wilds along an activated payline. Lotto Madness also features a scatter symbol, a bonus symbol, and a Lucky Wheel Bonus Round.
- A Night Out
Playtech’s A Night Out Slot revolves around a night club. The game delivers free spins, wild symbols, scatters, and the immensely popular Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot. The reels are populated with icons of a wide range of drinks and beautiful women. The slot’s betting range makes it ideal for players with different bankroll sizes as they can wager anywhere between a penny and $1000.
If players land the pilsner wild along an activated payline, they will win the top fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins. The bonus round gets triggered when the bartender icon appears on the first and fifth reels. This round challenges players to choose a beautiful lady to get free spins and a drink to get a multiplier value.
When NetEnt launched Starburst in 2012, players were unsure about it. However, the game quickly gained popularity and remains the most popular game at NetEnt casinos even today. Starburst is popular because it reminds players of another popular PC game called Bejeweled. The game also gained popularity because NetEnt powered online casinos began offering free spins on it as new player bonuses.
Starburst lacks special features; in fact, the only special feature of the slot is its wild symbols, which appear only on the mid three reels and expand to give players a maximum of three re-spins. This feature continues till no more wilds appear on the screen.
The uniqueness of this game and its win-both-ways feature makes it one of the top slots in the NetEnt portfolio.
- Jack Hammer
NetEnt’s Jack Hammer is very popular among high rollers chiefly because of its $250 max bet, 97% RTP, comic book theme, and maximum win of 250,000 coins. NetEnt has two variants of Jack Hammer and the second variant, called Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business, is the superior one.
If players land five Jack Hammer symbols along an active payline, they will win the top jackpot of 1000 coins, but they can win up to 250,000 coins by unlocking the game’s free spins round and sticky wins feature.
- Good Girl Bad Girl
BetSoft Gaming’s 3D slot Good Girl Bad Girl is definitely worth playing, especially as it comes in two modes—the Good Mode, which promises regular small winnings, and the Bad Mode, which promises large irregular payouts. Players can also play in the dual mode provided they place double the usual bets. The slot, which comes with multipliers, scatter symbols, and wild symbols, has a return-to-player percentage of 97.8%.
- Gypsy Rose
Gypsy Rose, a 3D slot in the BetSoft Gaming portfolio, features astoundingly beautiful graphics. The slot is based on the gypsy theme and revolves around the character of Rose, the gypsy fortune teller. Gypsy Rose has amazing background music and plenty of bonus features that can plump players’ casino bankroll in a matter of minutes.
It is a 30-line slot with 5 reels packed with symbols of crows, love potions, roses, tarot cards, and magic books. The slot features wilds, scatters, free games, re-spins, and enormous prizes. For example, players can trigger the Magic Book Bonus if they land a crystal ball on the third reel with two magic book symbols on either side of this. When this happens, players will win an instant cash prize of up to twenty times their original bet amount.
- Thunderstruck 2
Thunderstruck 2, Microgaming’s sequel to Thunderstruck, is one of the best slots in its portfolio. Based on the Norse mythology theme, Thunderstruck 2 features symbols of Thor, Loki, Valkyrie, and Odin. Players can take advantage of 243 ways to win, four bonus features, and large payouts.
- The Dark Knight Rises
Microgaming’s The Dark Knight Rises is based on a batman movie of the same name. In a bid to reproduce the authentic movie experience, Microgaming has populated the reels of The Dark Knight Rises with images of the very actors who had made that movie famous. But The Dark Knight Rises is also a slot game, not just the reproduction of a movie, owing to which it features plenty of bonus rounds.
The slot comes with a free spins accumulator, plenty of free spins, multipliers, and a Symbol Scramble feature that gives players another chance to win by scrambling all the icons on the gaming screen. Players can also split a wild icon and create unique six-of-a-kind combinations that carry payouts of their own.
- Jackpot Pinatas
Jackpot Pinatas is Real Time Gaming’s (RTG) 20-line and 5-reeled progressive online video slot. Based on a charming Mexican theme, the slot features images of presents, food, piñatas, dancers, and fireworks. While the slot can make players feel as if they are at a Mexican party, its best feature is its progressive jackpot, which can be won by landing five bull symbols along an active payline.
