After casinos became legal in Australia in 1973 so many video
poker machines appeared across the country that all slot machines were
affectionately called "pokies". Today Pokies.com, with over 320
games online, upholds that long and happy tradition of slots machines
in Australia and welcomes you with a 100% match on your first deposit
up to AUD $200 and 10 free spins.
When you go to a casino called Pokies.com you are going to play pokies. Pokies.com knows that and they are ready for you. For starters the casino has partnered with Microgaming. You know them as the world's biggest software developer of slots games and the innovator of the "243-ways-to-win" slots. So you have hundreds of Microgaming slots to try. The games play fast, look sharp and sound good. Microgaming also offers the online world's fattest progressive jackpots, including the legendary Mega Moolah where the minimum payout is AUD $1 million.
But Pokies.com has plenty more on offer on its virtual casino floor. They have also teamed with Aussie mates NextGen Gaming that has one of the longest and most respected resumes in Internet gaming. Since 1999 Next Gen has trademarked such exciting game play features as UpWild with the wild symbol expanding up the reels, Slide a Wild with adjustable volatility and Super Bet that juices the action with side bets and tempting multipliers.
Pokies.com casts its gaming net even wider. The casino also features high-definition video slots from Rabcat, the Viennese software developer that has given us Penguin Splash and Castle Builder. The plucky Swedish upstart Thunderkick contributes its playful take on traditional and video slots to the casino's game roster. All told there are more than 320 games ready to play.
But table games are not shuffled to the side at Pokies.com. The casino taps into Microgaming's live deal streaming for real-time blackjack, baccarat or roulette. And of course there are plenty of video poker options on the virtual floor. All games can be played right in the browser with no downloading or apps required.
Pokies.com welcomes you with a 100% match on your first deposit up to AUD $200. That also earns you 10 free games with NextGen's popular Foxin' Wins game. (See right) Unlike normal fox hunts the vulpines are not the quarry but the hunters - on the scent of a leprechaun and his gold.
As soon as you make your first spin in the casino you are anointed the status of a Bronze level VIP. Every AUD $16 wagered after that results in an additional VIP point which points you towards lofty Diamond VIP status where you are showered with gifts, assigned a personal account manager and awarded plenty of additional casino perks. Regular players find matching weekly deposits and an occasional Weekly Bonus Surprise that can pop up any time you are in the virtual casino. Expect promotions and free spins to accompany introductions of new games as well.
