New Online Pokies At Australian Online Casinos

August 30, 2016


New online pokies are rolling thick and fast at popular Australian online casinos. From those that have gone live recently, two of the best are being reviewed and recommended.

Secrets of Atlantis from the popular software provider NetEnt can be played at Casino Room. This online pokie has a 5×4 structure with 40 fixed paylines. The high paying symbols are precious stones from the lost treasure of Atlantis. The low paying symbols are sea creatures like crab, turtle and jellyfish that haunt the ruins of the lost city. Two immediately likeable features are that all symbols appear stacked on reels and winning combinations pay both ways. NetEnt has introduced a Highlight Feature in Secrets of Atlantis online poke. If, during any spin, reels 2, 3 and 4 get completely highlighted then a Colossal Symbol Re-Spin feature is triggered. The symbols in the central reels appear as blocks of 3×4 and these reels spin as one. This process can keep repeating and payouts are made at each stage. The mermaid is an expanded wild symbol. If it is partially displayed on the reels, then it will be automatically nudged up or down so that it is fully displayed. The wild symbol can also appear as a Colossal Symbol. NetEnt reports the average return of Secrets of Atlantis as 97.1%, which is above par for online pokies.

Fortunate 5 is a Playtech online pokie that has just been released at Omni Casino. It has the popular pirate theme with the five crew members known as Fortunate 5. Five of a kind wins from any of the pirates pay a fixed multiplier of the line bet and a progressive jackpot. As expected the audio visual effects are awesome. The pirate ship is the wild symbol and can appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game. Three or more scabbard symbols trigger the Wild Waters free spins. You keep playing the free spins till you collect five wild symbols. Then you play the final Wild Storm Super Spin. The collected wilds are randomly frozen on the reels. Additional wilds may appear on any reel in the super spin. The feature cannot be retriggered. If four of the same pirate character appears from left to right on an active payline, then the 2nd Chance Re-Spin feature is triggered. The fifth reel is spun again giving you another chance to hit the progressive jackpot. Fortunate 5 is a 15 fixed paylines online pokie in the 5×3 format.
