Video Pokies for New Zealand Players

Most players will tell you that Video Pokies are the most exciting games. They are definitely the most abundant games that you can find at any NZ online casino today and brand new ones continue to be released each month by companies such as Microgaming and Playtech.

Video Pokies are designed to appeal to a wide audience of online gamblers. They have a range of different game themes and each pokie is quite unique from the next. Most of today’s Video Pokies have anywhere from 9 winning paylines up to in some cases as many as 100 winning paylines (or more) and many of them have Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols and Bonus Symbols.

More About Video Pokies

Learning how to play on a Video Pokie is relatively easy and everything that you need to know about the pokie is usually explained in the paytable. These paytable’s explain how much each symbol is worth and what specific action certain symbols perform. For example, the Wild Symbol usually acts as a substitute symbol and can substitute all other symbols to generate a new line win that otherwise wasn’t there.

The Scatter Symbols generally award some kind of guaranteed ‘scatter’ cash prize when at least two of them show up in any position across the reels and they can also trigger a Free Spins Bonus Round when three or more of them appear anywhere in view. The Bonus Symbols usually trigger either an on-reels bonus feature (such as a click me bonus game) or an entertaining multi-level second screen bonus round (aka side game or picking bonus).

When playing on a multilined video pokie, the best thing to do would be to set the amount of paylines to the full amount where possible. In other words, if the pokie has 30 winning paylines, play with the full 30 paylines active and don’t play with any less. This means that you will never miss out on any possible line wins that occur.

The other thing that you need to remember to do when you play on a video pokie for the first time is to set your stake. You should always change the bet-per-line value and also the coin value to correspond to your bankroll. The only thing that’s left to do then is hit spin and hope for a win. Some pokies even have Autoplay Features, a Turbo Mode (which can speed up gameplay) and/or a Gamble Feature (which you can select after a line win to try and increase those winnings even further).
