The Most Popular Pokies In The World
With well over 15,000 online pokies available in the world of online casinos, it really does take something special to become one of the most popular. In some cases it’s because they are just very playable and addictive, in other cases it’s because they have a feature or mechanic that is great, and in other cases it’s because they have successfully made the transition from the land-based casino world, as is the case with our first game, Cleopatra.
Cleopatra – IGT
Cleopatra is a five reel, 20 pay-line pokie that was launched in early 2012. Although the game has been around for quite some time now, it remains a favourite among players and is present in many, many casino lobbies. But why does Cleopatra remain one of the most popular pokie machines of all time? Well, the base game is fairly conventional, with wins possible by landing three or more symbols from left to right. What really sets this game apart is the special wild symbol which doubles payouts. Then you’ve got an amazing, not to say unusual, special bonus feature that rewards up to 180 free spins thanks to a trebling multiplier. So there’s your answer.
Gonzo’s Quest – NetEnt
This game is one of NetEnt’s online pokies flagship titles. Since its release in 2013, Gonzo’s Quest has gone on to attain legendary status in the online casino community. Inspired by the daring-do of conquistador Gonzo Pizarro, the game’s theme is brilliantly captured by the kind of animated 3D short that’s become a staple of NetEnt’s most popular pokies. The actual game-play is replete with all manner of visual embellishments including some superb reel animations. It’s further enhanced by the first ever appearance of the Avalanche mechanic, in which winning symbols drop from the reels to be replaced with new ones. Factor in the Free Falls feature with its 15x multipliers and you’ve got yourself quite a pokie.
Hotline – NetEnt
This five reel pokie from NetEnt is inspired by hit 80s TV cop show Miami Vice and the famed detectives, Crockett and Tubbs. Although the cartoon duo fronting up Hotline is more Felixstowe than Florida, they don’t spoil what amounts to a high-octane, feature-laden pokie game. The main feature here is a special bonus bet option where you can choose to play with one, two or three hotlines. The more you stake, the better your chances of triggering re-spins and expanding wilds. There’s also a free spins round that includes expanding sticky wilds. A sequel to this acclaimed game was released in 2020.
Raging Rhino – WMS
Raging Rhino is one of those popular pokies that started out in land-based venues before being converted for online play. There are six reels instead of five which of course means you’ve got more than 4000 ways to win with each spin. Themed around the African savannah, the base game is actually fairly straightforward. To win, you’ll need to land at least two symbols on adjacent reels beginning with reel one. Standard wilds are in play and substitute all others apart from the scatter. This triggers a very rewarding bonus round that can dish out as many as 50 free spins. During the round, every wild that appears on the reels includes either 2x or 3x multipliers.
Rainbow Riches – Barcrest
Whether you love it or hate it, Rainbow Riches is without doubt one of the most popular pokies of all time – and that applies to land-based venues as well as online casino lobbies. Launched in the distant days of 2009, Rainbow Riches is brimming with an extremely colourful assortment of Irish clichés including a harp, leprechaun and a pot of gold. One of the reasons for its popularity is a simplistic but accessible base game that requires you to land three or more matching symbols. But we should also mention the three bonus features too that include a cash-trail and pick-me game. Each one gives you the chance to win up to 500 times your stake.
