As more and more popular pokies make the transition from land-based casinos to the online world,
this website will hopefully point you at the best real money pokies you can play online along
from Australia or New Zealand with guidance on which safe websites have the games available for real
money play or for fun!
Some of the common pokie manufacturers already launched a slew of popular games for real money online:
Novomatic, WMS and IGT are well established along with Aristocrat pokies like the Queen Of The Nile II
and Lucky 88 which started appearing in 2011.
Aristocrat have also released 50 Lions online along with both 50 Dragons which
is pretty much the same game (there's a video of 50 Dragons below if you scroll down),
5 Dragons (nothing like it!) and Sun And Moon. These games
are initially exclusive to MoneyGaming.
Important News for Aussie Residents - Aristocrat have blocked
their online pokies to players from Australia but New Zealand residents are still good to go.
In general, players from New Zealand will be able to sign up and play at most of the casinos listed on this site, even
the Aristocrat games can be played for real money. However, Australian pokie players
aren't so fortunate because Aristocrat block them. But all is not lost: check out the video below and look at the casinos
listed below it - those are available to Aussies aswell ;)
Note: Please ensure that online gambling in your jurisdiction is legal before you play pokies for real money online.
The online casinos above all run Microgaming software, all have the Sovereign Of The Seven Seas pokie and all
accept Australian and NZ residents! You'll see from the video that this game is so like Aristocrat games it has
to have been developed fro Microgaming by an outside developer. Microgaming software is actually very good on
poker machines as it happens with over 300 available in the 'download' version and nearly 200 in the Flash-based
'Instant Play' browser-based casinos they offer.
Please remember that when you are playing pokies for real money online, although the RTP is generally decent on most
games averaging between 92% and 97%, it can be easy to get carried away and even more easy to chase your losses! Follow
my lead and ask the casino to implement a deposit limit if you tend to be subceptible to these things a bit too much!
