Yes. For those unfamiliar with the expression, a ‘pokie’ is a term used in Australia and New Zealand for games. It is short for ‘poker machine’ and includes video poker and slots. is for the more details.

The pokie games selection found in Australia is actually quite similar to the games found in Vegas. So, you would find games made by IGT, Bally and Aristocrat in Australia (Aristocrat is actually an Australian company, which is very popular in Vegas). Novomatic pokies are also popular in Australia and New Zealand.


Bonus Offers vs Bonus Features
The term ‘bonus’ is used in two very different ways by online casinos, with completely different meanings.

1) Bonus Offers - this is the one featured on so many casino website, the Bonus Offer, which is an incentive given to a player, which can improve the chance of hitting a big win or progressive jackpot.

2) Bonus Features - during your slots play you may trigger a Bonus Game or Bonus Feature - these are the classic in-game features we love to hit when playing.

Free Slots Bonus Offers
When it comes to online slots, a bonus can also refer to a ‘bonus offer’, which is usually an incentive to persuade you to make a deposit, like a matched deposit bonus, or a No Deposit Bonus.

A bonus generally gives you ‘free’ cash to play, which is not free at all, but gives you more play for your money, but with terms and conditions applied. Although a bonus comes with T&Cs, they do give you a better chance to win big, because you get more spins to hit the jackpot.
