The types of pokies offered by Microgaming can broadly be classified into:
Classic Pokies or Fruit Machines
Many players enjoy playing on a traditional fruit machine, similar to the one that players used to enjoy at pubs, bars and land based casinos. True to its name, the game is all about fruits and mimics the traditional fruit poky machines.
- Reels – Three
- Paylines – Three to five
- While playing, the players can see the location of these lines on clicking on the Win Lines button. Adjacent to this button, they may open the paytable to know the different fruits and other symbols that would spin on the reels and the rewards that each symbol could give.
- Symbol/Theme – Fruits
- Winning combinations – For payout a paying symbol must appear on all the reels of an activated payline, though generally there is an additional symbol which pays, though it may appear in just one reel
- Wager – One, two or three coins
- Free spins – Generally, classic cookies from Microgaming don’t offer free spins as a bonus.
Alternatively, the game has many high paying symbols. The different rewards that these symbols can give vary from two to three hundred times the placed bet.
Seasoned as well novice players can easily control and place bets because the control panel located under the reels is user friendly and easy to use. Some of the top Classic Pokies from Microgaming include Break da Bank, City of Gold, Cash Splash, Jingle Bells, and Jewel Thief.
Video Pokies from Microgaming are simply astounding and cover nearly any theme that a player can imagine of. These are best known for the excellent quality of their graphics, lively introductory clips and computer graphics plus special sound effects that make betting on them all the more pleasant. In fact many of the newer ones are known to have ‘win ways’ instead of the usual payline format with up to 243 different ways to win per spin. Terminator 2 has up to 1024 ways to win per spin during the Free Spins Bonus Round.
New releases like Jason and Avalon feature bonus trails wherein players contract several exciting bonus games having rewarding payouts. Likewise, other pokies such as Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance offer a sequence of free spins rounds.
- Themes: Sport, an ancient civilization, natural beauty or movie pokies
- Features: Video pokies have richer features. The number of paylines can go up to hundred or even more. The ongoing trend is to treat all probable combinations as paylines.
- Bonuses: modern video pokies are famous for their bonus features, of which the most admired is the free spins feature. Once this feature is activated, you are automatically allowed to play several spins without having to place any bets.
Another well known feature is the bonus game offered on a second screen wherein the player is asked to select objects before getting rewarded with random bonus payments.
Jackpot pokies, often referred to as progressive pokies have the potential of offering highest payouts because the amount of payout continues to increase with every bet that any player loses. The amount to be won at any given time is displayed on screens to attract additional players. Once a player hits the jackpot, he gets the entire accumulated amount and the jackpot is reset with a predefined amount that starts going up once again.
Winning combination: In most cases progressive jackpot is won by having the selected highest paying symbols on all the reels of a live payline. In certain progressive pokies all the similar symbols should necessarily be in the last payline. You also have random jackpot pokies wherein jackpot is arbitrarily awarded at the end of any spin, without any need of getting any grouping of symbols on reels.
Wager: In majority of cases, jackpot pokies have a default fixed wager. Some would require the player to bet the maximum amount for participating in the progressive jackpot.
Megaspin pokies provide 4, 6 or even 9 times the fun and excitement, compared to playing online slots as you can play 4, 6 or 9 game at the same time.
All Slots Casino have five varieties of MegaSpin online slot machines:
- MegaSpin Double Magic
