Slots are more commonly known in New Zealand and Australia as pokies (learn more about AU and NZ pokies by visiting: http://on-linepokies.com a leading online pokies guide) and some of the best online casinos even display these games as ‘pokies’ and not as ‘slots’. The main types of online pokies are the classic 3 reel variety with just 1 to 5 winning paylines and also the video pokie variety with have 5 reels, multiple winning paylines and plenty of exotic symbols such as wild symbols, scatter symbols and bonus symbols. You can also now find several variations of these symbols and they all perform different actions.
A wild symbol usually has the ability to substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the scatter symbols or the bonus symbols and they are quite often the highest valued symbols on the reels. The bonus symbols can trigger a second screen bonus round and/or an ‘on-reels’ bonus feature and the scatter symbols usually award a guaranteed coin prize when two or more show up in any position across the reels. The scatter symbols also generally trigger a free spins bonus round when three or more of them show up in any position across the reels.
There are many different types of online pokie themes and most online casinos contain an absolute minimum of 100 different online pokies. The most popular online pokie themes include the branded pokies which are based on Marvel and DC Comic heroes, or the branded pokies which are based on famous television shows and blockbuster movies, plus you can also find an exciting range of ancient Egyptian themed pokies, action & adventure themed pokies, fairy tale/fantasy & mystery themed pokies, lucky Irish themed pokies, money/wealth/gold/jewels themed pokies, love & romance themed pokies, sports themed pokies and animal/wildlife themed pokies.
To win a prize on any online pokie, you need generally need three or more matching symbols to land in consecutive order (usually from left to right) across any of the winning paylines. All you need to do is select your stake and then hit spin and just hope for a winning combination to occur when the reels stop spinning.
We recommend playing each spin with the full amount of paylines active and this means that you will never miss out on a win. In the bonus rounds, you generally just have to select items to reveal hidden prizes and some of these bonus rounds have more than one level to win prizes from.
