It’s been a while since we’ve taken a look at the latest and greatest games on offer here at Online Casino Australia, so there’s no better time to take a look at the current market and what you can hope to find by playing online! Naturally, we cover both online and land based gaming here on the site, and having already featured Aristocrat’s latest pokies this week, it is the turn of the online players to see what our favourite brands have to offer.
The biggest names on the casino gaming scene continue to be Microgaming and Net Entertainment, so we’ve chosen those as our big two developers for this week’s feature. So, let’s get into the games and where you can play them online for yourself.
Microgaming is the undisputed king of the online gaming space, with more pokies and games than any other developer. Quantity does not always equal quality however, although we have to say that you can’t go far wrong with any of their games. They also offered the added benefit of releasing many games across multiple platforms, meaning that you can play them just as easily on your mobile or tablet as you can on your desktop. If you’re new to the world of Microgaming pokies then here are three great choices to get you up and running:
- Untamed Crowned Eagle. If you’re an Aussie player then you’ll be used to the concept of pokies series, where different games are linked together by common features, themes and bonuses. The Untamed range is certainly such a set of games, and Crowned Eagle is the latest release. With detailed graphics, free spins and wilds, it is simple but effective gaming at its finest.
- The Dark Knight Rises. Another recent release is the official movie tie-in to the third and final Batman movie from the recent trilogy. It’s a visual stunner and offers a unique method of building up your free spins and multipliers in preparation for the bonus round landing.
- Lucky Koi. If you’re looking for something slightly more traditional but still recent, then Lucky Koi is the poker machine for you. If you didn’t know any better, you’d swear that it was an Aristocrat pokie given the Asian theme and simple graphics and options. However, unlike Aristocrat’s finest, it is available online here in Australia and you can play it right now.
Check out these great games at the following casinos, each of which has been hand-picked for being absolutely perfect for Aussie players:
Net Entertainment may not be quite as big as Microgaming but their games are more than a match for the finest that their main competitor has to offer. Aussie players are particularly fond of them as they always seem to have a game available that is noticeably similar to what Aristocrat brings to the table – everything from themes to betting options and features have inspired NetEnt pokies over the years so the opportunity to play familiar games online is rarely lost in our market. While the following games can’t be compared to any Aristocrat pokies in particular, they are some of the freshest and most rewarding choices around.
- Big Bang. As of right now, this is Net Entertainment’s most recent pokie release and it is best known for the unique multiplier feature. Indeed, a separate bonus round has been done away with altogether in favour of rewarding consecutive wins, so if you like to win big during regular gameplay, this is the pokie for you.
- South Park. Microgaming isn’t the only developer with quality licensed pokies up its sleeve, and South Park was one of our favourite releases of last year, not to mention one of the most hotly anticipated worldwide. You’ll already know what the show is all about and the poker machine brings it to life through great animations and themed features – it’s so good that it’s worth a play whether you’re a fan or not!
- Champion of the Track. Rounding off this week’s feature is perhaps the greatest horse racing themed poker machine of all time. If you’ve been checking out Spring Carnival, which was recently released as part of Aristocrat’s Legend series, then this game will be right up your street. Even if you have no interest in the horses, the feature round is truly incredible and one that must be seen to be believed.
You can find each of these top pokies at the following industry leading casinos where you can be sure of big bonuses, fair treatment and top class support:
We hope you enjoy our selections, and be sure to keep an eye on the blog for all of the latest and greatest releases from Australia’s most popular online pokie developers!
