Video slots in Australia may be a bit different than other locations around the globe but will still provide you with hours of fun and excitement.
Everything about slots
As they are called in Australia, pokies or poker machines simulate reels in the physical sense that in most cases have five reels. The machines offer bonuses, free games, second screen features, and bonus levels. In the majority of cases, they also offer multiple lines all the way up to 200 or various ways to be played which can go as high as 3,125.
Players have the option of playing only one line on a machine that offers 243 ways to win. The idea behind this is to get three symbols on the reel you have chosen, while other reels will only win if the center reel has all three symbols.
The video slots also offer what is known as multiway slots that allow you to use either a 5 by 5 or 4 by 4 pattern which offers five different symbols on every reel and gives players the option to win all the way to 3,125 ways.
Small and large Wins
Of course, you can have small wins, that will keep you playing for hours, but if you want large wins then you need to play progressive pokies. Progressive video slots can truly offer huge prizes and larger wins than any other slot machine, whether you play online or offline. If you hit the correct symbols on the pay line you have chosen and you have played the max bet, you could walk away with a huge amount of money.
Examples of huge jackpots that can be won at this time on progressive machines include the Mega Moolah which is at $9,7171,869.85, King Cashalot which today is at $848,058.80 and Major Millions which is at $266,231.00, and these amounts are changing every time a person spins the wheel.
A few of the huge winners of progressive pokies include anonymous winners and others. A German by the name of Gabriel won one of the largest jackpots, worth $6.81 million in 2013, while playing at the Spin Palace mobile casino. In second place is a UK resident, John Orchard that won $5.8 million in 2012 also at a mobile casino.
Different slot games
In Australia, you will find 3-reel pokies that are very close to the normal types of the early poker games with three reels that rotate and offer 1, 3, or 5 pay lines. In the majority of cases, winning is easily understood as long as you have the winning symbols on the lines you choose you to play. In the majority of cases, the odds are better at winning on this type of machine, as they are often medium to high volatility games which only means that the machines pay more often but not huge amounts.
5-reel video pokies use modern technology, which is often based on specific themes like computer games or movies and offer an array of sound and visual effects. This machine offers multiple pay line and various ways to win. These machines are considered low volatility games but once you hit, you can win huge jackpots
Progressive pokies are like other machines, but they offer players the chance to win huge jackpots as mentioned above. The reason for this is that the money accumulates each time the game is played at any casino that offers the progressive machine you choose. Of course, in order to win the huge jackpot, you must play the maximum amount of pay lines and the maximum number of coins.
