The continuing Pokies story
Slots in Australia and New Zealand are termed as Pokies. There’s a bewildering array of pokies to choose from, they are mostly 5-reel machines commonly containing 3, 5, 9, 15, 20 or 25 lines to play. Far removed from the old “one armed bandits” with the pull handle these electromechanical slot machines have been introduced, firstly in the 1960s and continual improvements have resulted in the 3D slot machine which we are all familiar with and which has become extremely popular with slots enthusiasts. The 3D high high resolution graphics and sound effects combined with free spins and bonus rounds are what make these 3D video slots so entertaining. To make these pokies even more entertaining they are often based on popular Hollywood movies whilst some game developers will conjure up their own characters and give them an interesting story line.
Australian Visitors please note
Unfortunately due to the Australian nanny state some of the software providers on this site have been forced to instigate geo-blocking of their games. What this actually means is, that of September 12th 2017 Australia enacted a law effectively disallowing Australians access to many of the games that people enjoy playing, be they free or for real. Microgaming, Playtech and Genesis Gamingare just a few.
For those interested in the maths behind these machines
These days the more modern multipayline machines display 243, 1024,720 or 3125 paylines, being referred to as ‘243 ways to win'(3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 243) or ‘1024 ways to win’ (4 x 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 = 1024) or ‘720-ways-to-win'(3 x 3 x 4 x 4 x 5)= 720 or ‘3125-ways slots'(5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 3125) these slots also generally make use of all the modern type of features and bonus rounds.
Adobe and the macOS
The 3D high high resolution graphics and sound effects previously mentioned have been achieved by using HTML5 which is the most suitable gaming platform for your PC, Android, iOS or Windows smartphone or tablet. Since Apple has never supported Adobe Flash games on it’s platforms be they tablet or smartphone and Adobe has dropped support for it’s mobile Flash player, effectively signalling the end of any chance it will ever find support for the iPad, iPhone, or even Android smartphones and tablets.
Gamble Feature offered on most Pokies
If you’re feeling lucky you can choose the “Gamble” feature which is offered on most machines after a winning spin. By using this feature you a have a chance of winning double or quadruple the amount initially won. This feature comes in various forms such as guessing the color or the suit of a card or simply watching a numbered wheel going round and hopefully stopping at a win or any one of numerous other methods which are employed. Although this is fun it’s not to be recommended as gambling one win a lot of times results in lessening your chances of winning, so you will actually end up losing larger prize, in other words use the gambling feature with moderation.

Slots games which have a multitude of pay lines usually have smaller payouts for a winning combination due to the fact there are more ways to win, whereas machines with fewer pay lines have larger payouts for a winning line as getting a winning combination is more difficult. Playing money slots can be exhilarating but please remember as previously stated the machine has the edge so play carefully and try not forget carried away as you should only be play for the entertainment, once you’ve reached the amount you budgeted for you should quit as there’s always next time.
