What Were Your Top Games For Australians In 2012?

With software developers like Microgaming and Playtech working hard to push the boundaries of what can be done with Online Pokies, it’s no surprise that last year saw a rich crop of new games to tempt customers at online casinos.

And the casinos themselves have continued to improve the service they offer, despite some uncertainty – mostly in the States – about their status. 2011 was also a year that saw some incredible offers for online gamblers to take advantage of: online casinos were working hard to give us what we wanted in value and in customer service, in online Casino Games and Online Roulette , and in pokies – especially progressive pokies, which reached new heights and new, bigger-than-ever jackpots.

But what were the games that really hit the mark in 2011? We’ve picked out five that stood out from the crowd for us, and we present them here, in no particular order. If we’ve left out your highlight of the year – let us know!

First of all, Horns and Halos. Innovative and entertaining, Cryptologic’s angels-and-demons-themed six-reel pokie was one that we spent more than a little time on. It didn’t boast the biggest jackpots of the year, but it was one of the most fun pokies around, and it didn’t break the bank with every spin of the reels.

Equally fun is the epic King Kong, and packing quite a punch in the jackpot department, too. The great King Kong Goes Ape and Plane Smash bonus features kept us coming back for more, and this is the pokie that offers more free spins than any other we’ve seen – one of our favourite stories of the year was of a gambler whose single spin on King Kong lasted for a full 24 hours because he kept re-triggering the free spins (of course, we’ve no way of knowing if it’s true or not – we just love the story...)!

Microgaming’s Gold Factory was a massive hit in 2011 – we think most likely for its combination of appealing graphics, great gameplay and generous jackpot prizes. Certainly Gold Factory is an online pokie that drew a lot of traffic to the online casinos, and you can’t argue with that sort of success!

Speaking of success, Siberian Storm made the cross-over from land based casinos to the world of Online Pokies in 2011, meaning that online gamblers could recreate the experience of one of the most successful pokie machines around. And the online version had all the great features the pokie machine boasts, making this an instant hit.

Lastly, perhaps our favourite release of 2011 came right at the end of the year – another online pokie developed by Microgaming, and one on which they spared no expense at all. Building on the format of the excellent Thunderstruck, Immortal Romance offers gamblers a pokie with genuine gothic, brooding atmosphere, some compelling characters that give the game a real sense of story, and an array of great features that make it a lucrative choice at online casinos.

The newest of Microgaming’s 243-ways-to-win range, and with plenty of bonus round and wildcard action, the prizes keep coming on Immortal Romance – but the best feature for us is the soundtrack that accompanies the pokie. The soundtrack is all too often overlooked by designers of Online Pokies, and so we appreciated the atmospheric, original tunes that are the background to Immortal Romance.

You can give all of these great games a try at online casinos right now. We recommend Spin Palace and Jackpot City – both safe and well-supported online casinos that cater specifically to gamblers here in Australia. And if we left out your favourite – drop us a line...
