How we review and score pokies

The team at CasinoSites play and test each and every online real money pokie we review extensively to provide as in-depth coverage as possible. We examine and score multiple facets of the games to give readers a good understanding of what it has to offer and if it’s a good match for a particular type of player – casual, high-stakes, low-stakes, progressive jackpot hunters or just general pokies enthusiasts.

Our review criteria includes:

  • Audio, graphics and theme: Is there an intro cinematic? Is the sound crisp? Are the graphics impressive? Is the theme enticing enough?
  • Gameplay features: Wilds and scatters symbols? Gamble features? How many reels and paylines? Free spins?
  • Progressive jackpots: What are the jackpot prize pools for progressives?
  • Platforms: Is it available on computer only? Is there a mobile smartphone or tablet version? Is it optimised for portable devices?
  • Stake levels: How many coins denominations can we bet and win per payline?

Along with coverage of the game in whole, our reviewers will also provide their opinion and final verdict on the game, to give readers a good indication of what type of player the particular pokie caters to. Every review also comes with high-quality demos, screenshots and video of the game in action so you know exactly what is offered.

All of the games we review are available to play in practice demo mode for free, so players can get a decent feel for a game themselves, when videos and screenshots aren’t enough, before committing to any real money wagers. As a rule of thumb, they’re also all playable via Web browsers (Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox), directly loading via Flash technology so you don’t have to download and install software for every game – though the option is available at some of our recommended casinos, should you want a dedicated program to access your games.

This last point also extends to mobile smartphone or tablet pokies play; our casinos offer several mobile-optimised video slots which can be played directly via your phone’s Web browsers, with no need to download native apps. Not all online slots are ported over to the mobile platform, but the most popular titles usually are. A few recommended casino sites offer pokies casino apps which enhance the mobile gambling experience, but only a handful are available due to strict Australian gambling laws, which mobile brands and their app stores like Android and Apple abide by.

Top-rated pokies game developers

We review only the highest-quality real money online pokies games from the best software developers in the Internet casino industry, tested and proven in fairness, random number generators (RNGs) and payouts. Many of these studios have produced original pokies and licensed games based on an existing popular media franchise, such as Aliens, Game of Thrones or Tomb Raider, for added appeal to the mass market of pokies players.

Pokies are only reviewed on this site if they’re available in full to Australian real money players wanting to best in Australian dollars (AUD). Due to our gambling laws, some international casino game developers and their catalogues are region-locked and thus not able to be played for real money from Internet addresses located in our country. Well known companies such as IGT and NextGen are unfortunately unable to cater to the Australian market, though this is always subject to change.

Here are our top pokies game studios which make up the bulk of our pokies reviews:

BetSoft - real money online 3D pokiesBetSoft: BetSoft is a specialist in computer animated 3D pokies with interactive graphics, with over 150 slots in its catalogue. Its signature flair is cinematic production, character model animation and visual FX, with some of the most engaging games in the digital space, with crisp audio and colourful visuals always making the standard pokies gameplay interesting. Well known titles include Gold Diggers, Mr. Vegas and Vikings.

Microgaming - Play Game of Thrones pokies onlineMicrogaming: The leading online casino gaming developer, Microgaming has been around since 1994 and pioneered the Internet gambling scene with the first ever working casino website. Since then, the studio has produced over 800 slots titles, secured several high-profile media properties (Batman, Game of Thrones, Hitman, Playboy, Terminator) and develop truly memorable video slots, in addition to producing well known original pokies content (Avalon, Mega Moolah, Thunderstruck) that are now house-hold names. When it comes to progressive jackpot slots, Microgaming reigns king, with 40 progressives and the biggest progressive jackpot network on the ‘Net, paying millions to pokies players for the last decade.

Net Entertainment - best Internet pokies in AUDNet Entertainment: Net Entertainment, also known as Net Ent, are a massive player in the online pokies industry. With impressive graphics and a diverse range of properties under its belt, Net Entertainment are best known for both their licensed pokies games and original titles, including Aliens, Gonzo’s Quest, Scarface and more. Their progressive jackpot pokies also match Microgaming’s in popularity and jackpot payouts, with Arabian Nights and Mega Fortune paying out millions of dollars to lucky slots players over the years.

BetSoft, Microgaming and Net Entertainment are some of the biggest names in the online video slots field, but up-and-coming developers like iSoftBet, Leander Games and Playtech get the recognition they deserve and also have great games reviewed here on our site that we also recommend highly to our readers.
