Microgaming is undoubtedly the current king of mobile casino gaming in Australia, powering as it does every single one of our recommended mobile operators for Aussie players. Their success is down to the fact that, just like with the online casino market, they were the first to launch the latest software for enjoyment on the most powerful devices. Mobile players across Australia have already been enjoying the likes of Mega Moolah and Thunderstruck on their smartphones and tablets for a number of years and they have proved to be two of the leading pokies in the marketplace. However, Microgaming have shown no signs of resting on their laurels in the market, with January 2013 seeing the launch of three more innovative pokie titles, each converted following success at the major online casinos.
The great news for Australian players is that pokies seem to be at the core of the Microgaming mobile casino strategy, with all three new titles operating in this highly popular and familiar format. This serves not only to ensure their market lead across Australia, but also means that fans of the likes of Royal Vegas Mobile Casino and Platinum Play Mobile Casino have access to more choice of titles than anywhere else.
The first of the new releases is actually something of a controversial choice among players, owing to its prevalent Christmas theme. Of course, there is nothing at all wrong with such a theme, but January is certainly curious timing. Nevertheless, mobile pokie fans in Australia can now enjoy a fully featured mobile conversion of Deck the Halls on the latest smartphones and tablets. Whether the game really is popular all year round, or Microgaming is attempting to bring increased exposure to a seasonal favourite remains to be seen. Either way, our readers can decide for themselves right now at All Slots Mobile Casino.
The second pokie on the list is more well-known and comes in the form of a HTML5 version of Burning Desire. The pokie is a welcome addition to the mobile casino landscape as it is one of the few smartphone casino games to employ the famous 243 Ways to Win System. Just like its online counterpart, players can scoop big prizes just for lining up the same symbol on adjacent reels with absolutely no win lines to worry about. Aussie fans of the pokies also enjoy a good jackpot win, and Burning Desire’s stands out as one of the leading standalone prizes, weighing in at a hugely lucrative 90,000 coins.
Finally, All Slots Mobile Casino now boasts a touch screen based version of Adventure Palace. While perhaps not up there alongside the likes of Thunderstruck as one of the most popular pokies in Australia, Adventure Palace is nevertheless a solid game with a number of special features that lend themselves perfectly to mobile play. Gameplay is simple but effective and allows players to take full advantage of handy features such as wild multipliers and a free spins round.
As regular readers will no doubt be aware, new mobile casino games hitting the market depend on both companies in a partnership. Microgaming’s role is to develop and test the games in preparation for launch, while the casino operator must decide on a release date and plan promotions and information accordingly. As is so often the case, All Slots, one of our most highly recommended mobile casinos for Australian players, is right at the front of the queue when it comes to launch schedules. All three pokies are already loaded up and ready to go on the mobile version of one of the world’s leading casinos.
