A top pokie site for Aussie players
Players from United States not acceptedVISIT CASINO
As with most products that have an Australian slant, the All Australian Casino relies heavily on stereotypes: its website is characterised by clear blue skies, a hopping kangaroo, a great white shark snarling at the heels of an ignorant surfer… Still, it’s all in the name of fun – and Aussies are as thick-skinned as they are good-humoured.
The online casino itself has been built to cater to Australian players, which makes the aforementioned stereotypes either ironic or just plain daft. Whatever, all that matters is that an array of high-quality games are on offer, titles fresh from the Net Entertainment software company’s busy production line, as well as boutique provider Amatic. The instant-play casino has been servicing customers from Oz and elsewhere since 2013.
As well as furnishing eager players with all their favourite pokies, players can sample a selection of live casino games transmitted from the exclusive Portomaso Casino, located in the Mediterranean island of Malta. If you’re the kind of person that can only stake money after peering into the granite eyes of a dealer, you’ll welcome the inclusion of this immersive interface.
The website is fully operated by L&L Europe Ltd, a Malta-based company that runs several web-based gaming platforms, among them the All British Casino, the All Irish Casino (do you spot a theme emerging?), the No Bonus Casino and Karl Casino.
One thing you can be sure of is a fair game: every one of them utilises a RNG (Random Number Generator), ensuring that games of chance remain exactly that – and are not skewed disproportionately in favour of the house. The Gaming Authority also produces an official payout rate each month, though clients must request this information on their own.
They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen – and the phrase is especially apt where gambling is concerned. Players of this premier gaming destination are able to close their account whenever they wish; they can also elect to play for free, or impose their own personal wagering limits. Of course, a specially trained team of customer service operators is at your disposal, should you encounter any difficulties.
The site makes full use of partner NetEnt’s suite of games, as well as those by Amatic Industries. From hot bonus video slots to popular 3-reelers, classic roulette to variants of video poker, the portal will entertain you from the moment you log on. Indeed, it can be a dilemma trying to choose which game to play! Thankfully, the website helps you out, with sections such as Latest Pokie, New Pokie, New Table Game and High Payout Pokie.
NetEnt devotees will already be familiar with the slots on offer here, but for those scuffing their shoes in the dark, games include Aliens, Cosmic Fortune, EggOMatic, The Wish Master, Gonzo’s Quest, Bloodsuckers, Silent Run and Scarface. The latter, based on Brian DePalma’s iconic 1983 gangster film, includes a Say Hello to My Little Friend bonus feature. Piqued your interest? The world could well be yours by the end of this one – the jackpot is worth 60,000 coins.
If life-altering progressive jackpots are what you’re after, juggernauts like Arabian Nights, which is currently paying a jackpot of $2,340,076, or Hall of Gods, which is paying $1,659,851, make the prospect of a flutter all the more enticing. There are half a dozen progressives in total.
Away from the pokies, old-world punters will be pleased to know that live roulette is broadcast from the Portomaso Casino. Red or black? Games are beamed onto the website from 10.00 to 17.00 Central European Time, seven days per week. The casino also broadcasts live blackjack and baccarat from its bespoke studios round-the-clock. Place bets while you trade anecdotes with fellow players using the interactive chat facility.
Slots may constitute the majority of the action, but the latest in NetEnt’s scratch ticket series is also available. Lucky Double is a two-in-one scratch card that gives you the chance to win up to $100,000 on a 3x3 grid. There’s also a (higher) chance to win up to $100 by scratching a 2x3 grid. Reveal the symbols by manually scratching the boxes using your mouse, or by tapping the Scratch All button for swifter play. Sound effects mimic the sound your fingernails make when shaving a real scratch card! There’s a Demo option to get a feel for it, but truthfully, there’s not much to it.
By visiting the News & Promotions page, you can keep abreast of the latest alluring discounts and bonuses. There are new deposit bonuses every week, each tied to a different pokie. New customers, meanwhile, can take advantage of a 100% welcome bonus on first deposits up to 50 bucks. Wagering requirements are 35x the bonus.
Customers are furnished with a range of payment options where deposits and withdrawals are concerned. The only caveat is that the currency used is Australian dollars. Well, the clue’s in the title, I guess.
Incidentally, deposit options include Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard and bank transfer. Withdrawal options are almost identical: Visa, Skrill, Neteller and bank transfer. All deposits and withdrawals are free. Needless to say, the site employs the best technologies to ensure that all online transfers are safeguarded.
Like a great many online casinos nowadays, All Australian likes to list the recent winners on its homepage. Alongside the player’s name, you’ll see how much they’ve won and on which game. As well as serving to remind you that players actually win sometimes (if you’re on a particularly rough streak, you almost need such a reminder), it gives you a feel for games that have decent pay-out rates. Worth keeping an eye on as you’re trawling the homepage, deciding what you want to play next.
Is this site worth a whirl? That depends very much on your opinion of Amatic and NetEnt’s games. If you like ‘em, you’ll probably love this casino. If you prefer the likes of Microgaming, IGT and WMS, you might be best looking elsewhere.
Personally, we find it hard to believe many players will have a problem with NetEnt’s ever expanding library. The developer’s titles are on point, and there’s tons of choice. Throw into the mix the All Australian Casino’s credibility – they are licensed by both the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission – and you can’t really go wrong. Unless, of course, you’re from the US, Italy, France or Estonia: residents of these countries are prohibited from joining the fun…
