Pokies.com is one of the best online casinos around. Established only in 2014 it's definitely new, but the casino has turned its young age to its advantage by featuring new fun games and investing a top quality mobile gambling experience.

And oh, if you wonder about the odd name of the casino, "Pokies" is Australian slang for a slot machine. I guess this also explains the kangaroo in their logo!

Games

Pokies.com features the best games from several big game developers, including Netent, Microgaming and up-and-coming Thunderkick.

Like many modern online casinos Pokies.com features games from more than one game developer. Most of the 320 games are by Microgaming, the largest gambling game developer.

The presence of Microgaming games means that you’ll get to play the very best slot machines available anywhere, including big name titles like Game of Thrones, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park and online slot classics like Mermaids Millions which has been a huge hit for 10+ years.

Pokies.com in the news


Rest of the games are by less known developers like Rabcat, NextGen and Thunderkick. Perhaps a bit surprisingly the smaller game companies deliver excellent games. Just check out Foxin Wins by Rabcat, a fantastic slot game with fun graphics. Testing the game is easy thanks to Pokies.com’s 30 free spins offer for the game.

The real surprise, and the main reason for our 5 star review for Pokies is Thunderkick. Do yourself a favor and look up Thunderkick’s games from Pokies game lobby. Fun & cartoony graphics, high payout percentages and slick gameplay combined make Thunderkick’s slot games some of the best around anywhere. Check out titles like Flux, Toki Time and Sunny Scoops to experience first rate gaming.

If you like other real money games besides just slots, you’ll be well served. Video poker selection of Pokies isn’t all that fantastic (it only covers the very basics), but you’ll get all the casino table games, scratch cards and jackpot games you can hope for. In the jackpot front Pokies even features Mega Moolah, the largest online jackpot.

Mobile

Easy-to-navigate game lobby with 50+ mobile games for your mobile phone and tablet.

Unlike most Microgaming-based casinos, Pokies.com has put in effort into its mobile game selection. You can play the games with Android and Apple tablets and phones.

The mobile lobby (where you’ll automatically end up when you sign in with a phone or a tablet) functions well, is easy to navigate and most importantly features a big bunch of games (about 50 to be exact).

The game selection consists mostly of slot machines, but the other genres are covered too with everything from Deuces Wild to Roulette, Blackjack, instant scratch cards and so on.

Our only negative point here is that depending on your device some of the lobby elements (banners) may appear a bit distorted. The games themselves work well though so who cares.

2017 welcome bonus

As a new player you’ll get a three-part bonus up to $800 and 30 free spins for Foxin Wins slot machine.

Pokies.com’s 2017 welcome package consists of three bonuses for you first three deposits:

  • 100% up to $200 + 10 free spins
  • 50% up to $300 + 10 free spins
  • 100% up to $300 + 10 free spins

Notice that you’ll get free spins with each of your deposits. The spins are for Foxin Wins, which is one of the best slot machines of the casino.

Pokies.com for Canadian players

You can play in Canadian dollars and get live-chat support around the clock.

Like Guts and couple of other big casinos Pokies.com also has added Canadian dollars to their currency selection. This makes a big difference for us, as playing in your own currency is easy and simple compared to CAD-USD-CAD conversion required at casinos like 888.

Customer support is an ok fit for Canadians: live-chat is available around the clock. And as we say in each one of our reviews, if you have the chance, always use live-chat to sort out any problems or questions you have with a casino, it’s simply the most convenient way to contact customer support.

Conclusion

Strong contender for the best online casino of 2017, we recommend Pokies.com for easy and fun gaming.

No downloading, no currency exchange hassles, good customer support and a great mobile casino. All these features make Pokies.com a casino where you can concentrate on what really matters: playing fun & exciting games and chasing those ever illusive huge jackpots!
