Online pokies are the most popular casino games in the world and especially in New Zealand, where they have assumed a very special role in our popular culture. Without a shadow of a doubt, legions of New Zealanders love to let off steam by spinning the reels of these intriguing and compelling games. Perhaps the whole point is that, unlike with some of the more complicated casino games, you don’t have to cudgel your brains to figure out how to get the most out of them. You just click or tap the Spin button and watch the reels do their thing. No wonder players are lining up at Mummys Gold early to have a go at the best online pokies you can find anywhere in New Zealand.
Playing pokies online is a totally different experience from what it used to be. Players can play mobile pokies on their smartphone or tablet wherever they are, whenever they like. The overall entertainment value has if anything increased, and there are many more ways of potentially winning at pokies than there ever were before, with Cluster Pays, Ways To Win and other clever tricks becoming mainstream with the high-tech video pokies that are coming out nowadays. However, the old ways are sometimes the best and many players still enjoy a session with the classic 3-reel pokies.
Classic or 3-reel pokie games are inspired by the glorious history of the one-armed bandits and fruit machines from the early days of gambling, back in the late 19th century when the West had just got used to having been won. As time went on, the clanking of the reels started to be accompanied by cheerful tunes and at some point, video displays.
Then in 1994 Microgaming – our gaming partner of choice – developed the first online casino games and everything shifted to a different level. Nowadays, most pokies fans find their games online, but the basic concept has not changed a bit. The aim of 3-reel pokies is still to line up matching symbols on the reels in the hope that they form paylines for a potential payout. Fortunately, instead of taking time out for a trip to a land-based casino, you only have log in to Mummys Gold to play 3-reel pokies on your web browser, or download and install the convenient Mummys Gold mobile app to play directly on your home screen.
With our 3-reel pokies here at Mummys Gold, you get the best of the old and the best of the new. The nostalgic look and feel of our 3-reel pokies games like Fantastic 7s, Couch Potato, Cracker Jack, Diamond 777, Break da Bank, Cosmic Cat – and many more – gives a nod to the styling of the classic pokies machines, with their Cherries, Bars, 7s and Bells, without the inconvenience and discomfort of physically trekking to a casino. Certainly it’s much more convenient to load your wallet and withdraw your potential winnings via the Mummys Gold app than it is to cash in tokens at a teller. Another thing is that the 3-reel pokies are less dizzying to the brain than the snazzy video pokies, so they are ideal for beginners who just want to get their heads around how things work. Then there are those among us who prefer to concentrate on the paylines, which are limited to 3 in the case of 3-reel pokies, and get grumpy when all the bells, whistles and special features of the video pokies start going off like a squad of monkeys in a fireworks factory. The best of the new, though, is in what’s under the hood – flawlessly performing software from Microgaming that guarantees smooth, uninterrupted play no matter what device you choose to play with or what operating system or platform you use.
You deserve the best online pokies experience, and you deserve it whenever you want it. Players who register with Mummys Gold and make an initial deposit will receive a Welcome Bonus in the form of credits they can use to try out 3-reel pokies as well as a huge variety of other casino games.
