A website dedicated to reviewing online pokies is helping pokie fans all over the world find the best places to play online. The site, onlinepokies4u.com, states that they “…review the best online casinos for pokies, keep you posted on all the latest land-based pokies and let you know where to play the biggest jackpots online!”
The term ‘pokies’ originated in Australia and is used almost exclusively in Australia and New Zealand. In the USA they are known as ‘slot machines’, in the UK as ‘fruit machines’. These machines, found in casinos, pubs and social clubs across Australia, have been highly popular since gambling became legal in the 1950s in New South Wales. The laws governing the use of gaming machines are set at state level, therefore Australia’s six states create their own regulations for the use of pokies.
Pokies usually consist of five reels, that the player spins in order to gain winning combinations of symbols. Multiple lines and ways can be played, which can result in a greater chance of winning compared to conventional slot machines, that only pay out on winning combinations from left to right. Due to the differing laws governing pokies in Australia, payout percentages will vary per state. The lowest payout percentage can be 87% and on average, payouts are in the region of 90%. The payout percentage for online pokies is generally around 95%, making it far more attractive to play online than in casinos, bars and clubs. Playing slot machines online has become increasingly popular since the mid-nineties and with it, an increase in online gambling sites.
Onlinepokies4u.com reviews sites that offer online play of pokies and in addition, they review the most popular and newest land-based machines. The games that can be played in the casinos, pubs and social clubs of Australia are not always available online. The website will compare alternatives and match the closest online equivalent to the games that are popular offline.
Playing slot machines is a game of chance; nonetheless, the website offers an ‘online pokies strategy’ guide, which enables the player to receive advice and learn tips on how to become a better pokies player. In addition, it keeps track of pokie jackpots and shows where the biggest and best online jackpots can be found, with ‘live jackpot tickers’ available on the site. Besides information, comparisons and reviews, Onlinepokies4u.com has a news section where articles of interest are posted on a regular basis. A number of pokies are also available to play for free on the website.
www.onlinepokies4u.com was founded in 2010 by three pokies aficionados, who decided to combine their expertise in online gambling and their love of pokies to create a comprehensive website dedicated to finding the most exciting places to play pokies online. Fraser Jones is Australian, Bethany Davis is from the USA and Jane Richards from New Zealand.
