Pokies are far and away the most popular online casino games on the planet. The reason is not hard to understand – pokies are not only country-simple to play but they are also very entertaining. Unlike some of the more complicated casino games, anyone can play and enjoy pokies – it’s the people’s choice! At Mummys Gold, players can expect to find the best online pokies – more than 400 of them, as a matter of fact. If you join the club at Mummys Gold, you will gain unlimited access to the full selection of titles. A lot of our pokies have also been adapted for smartphone and tablet, adding an extra layer of convenience. You can play mobile pokies anywhere you like as long as you have an Internet connection.
Slots arrived in Las Vegas in the 1960s. Originally intended as side attractions for the female companions accompanying the men at the gaming tables, these machines soon stole the show. Pretty soon, the best pokies started cropping up all over the world, even in New Zealand, where they are now a favourite pastime. Some say they are even our unofficial national sport!
The basic concept of pokies hasn’t changed much over the years. There are 3 or 5 reels of different symbols arranged in a grid. When the player hits Spin, the reels spin and the symbols form different patterns. Depending on what patterns form, the player can potentially win credits and cash them out. This much has remained constant in the domain of pokies.
What has changed, though, is the technology under the hood. With the advent of the Internet, pokie games really came into their own. In 1994, Microgaming was the first game design company to develop online casino games and they soon added pokies to the list. This gave them the opportunity to incorporate every new digital possibility into their games. You can see it in the evolution of their games over the years, as the graphics, sounds, animations and features just get better and better.
Mummys Gold has partnered with Microgaming so when you play pokies, you have the best games at your fingertips. We’ve also partnered with NetEnt, whose pokies are pretty spectacular too. We figure it’s good to let them compete on our turf so they can push the envelope together.
Pokies come in different sorts and you can play them all at Mummys Gold. The gameplay of the classic 3-reel pokie game resembles that of the original mechanical Vegas pokies, but instead of working mechanically, the results are determined by a Random Number Generator to ensure fair play. Incidentally, we are independently audited by eCOGRA to ensure our pokies are legit.
Then there are video pokies, undoubtedly the cutting edge of online casino games. Themes, special features, graphics, animations, sounds, soundtracks and animated reel icons are all part of the show.
Our collection of video pokies includes hits like Bridesmaids, Phantom of the Opera, Tomb Raider, Avalon 2, Thunderstruck 2 and Legend of Oz, which has got a lot of attention lately. But you should browse our gourmet menu of titles and see which ones suit your personality, style and mood. If you join Mummys Gold and make an initial deposit, you will get a Welcome Bonus of credits that you can use on any games that take your fancy.
Both 3-reel pokies and video pokies can have progressive jackpots attached to them. The way progressive jackpots work is that a fraction of every bet made anywhere in the world is added to a jackpot that increases in size until someone wins. Then it returns to seed (the original starting value) and the process starts again. The potential wins from progressive jackpots are staggeringly huge, although with so many players, the chances of winning are quite remote. One of the most popular progressive jackpot pokies is Mega Moolah, a pokie game with an African safari that has no fewer than 4 progressive jackpots that could be triggered randomly at any time.
If you want to play pokies on the go, Mummys Gold has mobile casino games for every occasion, including more than 100 video pokies. You won’t experience any lags, glitches, buffering or other irritating interruptions because the games are optimised to suit the screen size and processing power of your smartphone or laptop. It only takes a minute to download and install our Mummys Gold mobile app, then you can experience the freedom of the freedom of the mobile casino at your leisure.
