Wins with Spins: Pokies Magic
All the Microgaming titles at Casino La Vida are impressive, and will thoroughly entertain online gamblers in New Zealand. When it comes to pokies, however, the developer truly is in a league of its own. And we’ve got the full library waiting for you.
Different Types of Games
Online slots, as pokies are known in many parts of the world, come in a few different categories. There are plenty of every kind of variation at our casino, and they are all best for different situations. None are better than any of the others; we recommend exploring them all.
Nostalgic Action with Reel Pokies
These games are inspired by the original one-armed bandit machines, first see in the early 20th century bars of Brooklyn and San Francisco, and then made wildly popular in 1960s and 1970s Las Vegas. They feature fewer paylines, reels, betting options and special features than more modern games, though the payouts are the same. Spin Couch Potato, Cosmic Cat, Funhouse, Thousand Islands, Bar Bar Black Sheep and other examples of these slots when you feel like slowing down a little, or you are new to the world of spins.
Immersive Thrills with Video Pokies
Video pokies take things to a whole new level of engagement. Every title is based on a set theme, which can be branded as in Tomb Raider or inspired by anything else, such as Thunderstruck which draws on Nordic mythology. With Agent Jane Blonde seeing a female agent going on adventures in a tongue-in-cheek play on 007 himself, it seems safe to say Microgaming’s titles are constantly pushing the envelope!
Increase your chances of small wins with the many paylines and reels in the game, and play when you want to be totally distracted and forget what is going on around you. Other popular branded video titles include:
- Jurassic Park™
- Terminator 2™
- Game of Thrones™
- Battlestar Galactica™
Spin the Arcade Reels for Something Different
Arcade pokies are a great development, and bring slots action together with the beloved arcade-style games of yesterday. Pokies-style play is used to achieve different goals, such as shooting a whole lot of aliens who fall in a slot-like way in Max Damage and the Alien Attack. Have fun exploring all the other arcade options, including the colourful and wonderfully strange Germinator.
Extra Excitement with Progressive Jackpots
Progressive jackpots like Cash Splash and Mega Moolah can be attached to any type of slot game, and run alongside the regular action. You still enjoy playing as normal, but the fact that you could hit the jackpot at any time adds more thrills to the proceedings.
Progressive jackpots are accumulated by adding a portion of every bet from every player, in a whole network of online casinos, to the general pot. This grows massive incredibly quickly, and is triggered at random in some games or when the symbols line up in specific ways in others. Either way, if you are lucky enough to have it happen to you your life will never be the same!
