Playing Online Pokies
Online Pokies Reels and Paylines
The reels are the main components of any pokie machine. These are the wheels with symbols painted on them. When you play online pokies, the reels spin around for a while and then come to a stop. All online pokie machines in All Jackpots Casino have either three reels or five reels.
The symbols on the pokie machine reels can be traditional Australian pokies symbols like cherries, bars, and playing cards, or they can be created specifically to fit the theme of a particular pokie game. Starscape online pokies, for example, has an outer space theme and has symbols of the sun and moon, Mars and Saturn, a comet, and a Spacecraft.
A pay line is a line that runs across the reels. It may go straight across, or it may zig and zag, but it must touch all of the reels on the online pokie machine. You “enable” a particular pay line when you place a bet on it, and you win at pokies when the right symbols appear on an enabled pay line.
Playing Online Pokies
Before you start to play pokies online, you must select your coin size, the number of coins per line, and the number of pay line enabled. For example, if you select a coin size of $0.02 and you select 10 coins, you will be wagering $0.20 on each line. If you enable 25 pay lines, your total bet will be $5.00 on each spin of the online pokie machine.
Once you have made all your selections, you may click the Spin button. That’s when the real online pokies action begins. The reels will spin around for a few seconds, and their positions when they stop determines whether or not you win at pokies.
Winning at Pokies
You win at pokies when several of the same symbol appear consecutively on an enabled pay line. Each online pokie machine has a Payout Table that tells you the payouts for each winning pokies combination. In Starscape pokies, five Sun symbols will pay 1,000 times your bet, while three Moon symbols will pay 10 times your bet.
It’s possible to collect multiple wins on one spin of the pokies reels. If you get five Sun symbols on one pay line, three Moon symbols on another, and four Comet symbols on a third, you’re in for a big online pokies payday.
When you do win at pokies online, the online casino software will calculate your payout and credit your casino account automatically.
Scatter Symbols, Wild Symbols, and Multipliers
Scatter symbols are special symbols that win a payout any time two or more of them appear, even if they are not on an enabled pay line. In other words, they can be “scattered” anywhere on any of the reels of the online pokie machine.
A wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol to create a winning pokies combination. In the Thunderstruck online pokie, for example, Thor is the wild symbol, so a pay line with Hammer-Thor-Hammer-Hammer will win as if it had four consecutive Hammer symbols.
In some online pokie games, the wild symbol also acts as a multiplier. In Thunderstruck, Thor acts as a 2X multiplier, so if the normal payout for four Hammer symbols is 100 coins, the Hammer-Thor-Hammer-Hammer combination will pay 200 coins.
Free Spins and Other Online Pokies Bonus Features
Many online pokie games have a Free Spins feature. In Thunderstruck, three or more Ram symbols scattered anywhere on the online pokie machine will give you 15 free spins. And to make it even better, all payouts are tripled during the free spins.
Free spins are a great online pokies feature because they give you a chance to win some real money jackpots with no risk of losing anything because they’re free. Pure profit with no risk of loss is about as good as it gets in online casino gambling.
Other online pokie machines have other special bonus features that are too numerous and varied to describe on one page, but they are all fun and entertaining and they all give you great opportunities to win real pokies jackpots.
