About Pokie Spins

Pokie Spins have only been around since 2019 so have had plenty of time to watch other casinos develop, learn from their mistakes and provide a real modern-day casino that caters for what people want in 2020.

For the most part this Aussie-facing Casino who holds the Curacao license have managed to do just that, stocking a mammoth amount of games from  a load of different software providers, offering a welcome bonus that’s right up there with the most generous in the industry and displaying a site that’s fresh, colourful, simple to navigate and easy on the eye.

We’ll tell you about the other things we like about these guys in due course and we’ll also tell you how if they can solve a few issues with the banking side of things, they could really stand out from the crowd. We’ll also happily point out what those banking issues are and why they matter.

The potential is certainly there though and in some other areas, they’ve already shown that they can pip some of their competitors. So, we’re hoping they sit up and listen to our constructive criticism and just iron out a few teething problems.

Pros

  • Huge welcome bonus to claim
  • Endless supply of softwar providers
  • Greater game selection than competitors
  • Attractive, well designed site
  • Live casino options
  • Decent ongoing promotions

Cons

  • Some banking issues
  • No mobile app

Pokie Spins Welcome Bonus and Promotions

Get rewarded for your first six deposits. Get 200% up to $5000 + bonuses between 50 and 100% up to $1000 each on your next five deposits.

Theirs is one of the slightly more complex welcome offers. For starters, there are deposit bonuses to be claimed on not just your first, second and third deposits (like most Casinos) but rather, your first six.

The first one is the whopper. You can get a 200% bonus up $5000 and they’ll also throw in free spins to be used on any of the following pokies:  Super Fast Hot Hot, Astro Magic or Cherry Trio. They say you get 1 free spin per dollar deposited and that’s true, but it’s worth pointing out they’re capped at a maximum of 100 free spins.

On your next five deposits they’re not quite as generous but there are still bonuses on offer that aren’t worth turning your nose up at. Here’s what you can get:

  • 2nd deposit: 100% bonus up to $1000 + 1 spin on Fruit Zen per dollar
  • 3rd deposit: 75% bonus up to $1000 + 50 free spins on Hot Spin
  • 4th deposit: 60% bonus up to $1000 + 50 free spins on Carnival Forever
  • 5th deposit: 50% bonus up to $1000 + 50 free spins on Cash Camel
  • 6th deposit: 50% bonus up to $1000 + 50 free spins on Diamond Wild

So a good way of starting your casino life out at Pokies Spins in style with more cash to find your favourite games and some useful free spins to try and secure a decent win with them. Wagering requirements are a somewhat steep at 35x on all of those bonuses arising from the deposits.

Try out new pokie releases with 40 free spins

The release of a new pokie is always cause for excitement and the only thing better than trying it out is to do so courtesy of some free spins. Each month they feature a new pokie and when you make a deposit, you’ll get 40 free spins on that pokie so you can see what you think of it. Customers should be aware that they’ll need to have made at least six deposits at Pokie Spins at some stage, in order to be able to claim this offer.

Game Contribution Rate

At all Casinos, different games contribute differently to meeting wagering requirements on bonuses and this one is no different. Here’s how the games there compare to each other.

Here’s one of the key areas where Pokie Spins is head and shoulders above the competition. If you look at other casinos who are targeting the Aussie market, they tend to offer about 200 to 250 different casino games, of which about 80% are pokies. That 200-250 number comes from the fact that a lot of casinos have just the one software provider on board and that’s s many games as that one provider offers.

Not so here. They have in excess of 15 different providers and between them they’ve made over 800 different games available for players at this casino to enjoy and as per usual, 75-80% of them are pokies.

Not all the providers are household names but the likes of Betsoft, IGT and Red Rake Gaming are among the best-known ones among Australian players and across the 15-16 different providers, there’s no shortage of imagination, innovation and just really good games to choose from.

Being all 2020 through and through, they haven’t forgotten about the demand for a Live Casino. There is admittedly just one version of each of the three most table games- Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat- but that’s probably as much you need anyway.

Table and Speciality Games

With over 800 different games offered, you’ll do well to want to play a game that they don’t stock.

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
  • Video Poker
  • Keno
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Bingo
  • Three Card Rummy
  • Scratchies

Many people take the view that you really don’t need to have five or six different versions of Blackjack or Roulette because essentially they all end up being the same game and whatever side bets or special bets you can place, aren’t really things customers want to be betting on anyway. They’d rather just focus on the main game that they’ve come here to play.

There’s some truth to that but at least it’s nice to know that those games with extra features are there if you want them.

And if they’ve stocked up on the table games, they’ve done the same with the specialty games. That includes some of the better-known ones such as Keno, Craps and Scratch cards but also a load of other ones, some of which we’d never even heard of!

Their choice of Video Poker isn’t quite as vast but there are enough to keep fans of those more than happy.

 

Pokies

Pokie lovers have come to the right place and the hard part is picking which ones to play.

  • Betsoft
  • Booming Games
  • Booongo
  • GameART
  • Gamevy
  • Habanero
  • IGT
  • iSoftbet
  • MrSlotty
  • Nolimit City
  • Playson
  • Realistic Games
  • Red Rake Gaming
  • SA Gaming
  • Tom Horn Gaming
  • WazdanRealTime Gaming

 

When you stock over 500 different pokies, it’s hard to know where to start in terms of talking about them. Well, Super Fast Hot Hot may be the best-known of them but there really is a huge variety when it comes to different themes, the bonus features they have, the amount of the pay-outs, number of reels and even the visuals and sound effects.

The best way to separate the wheat from the chaff is to just play them. So, when getting those big bonuses on your first six deposits, why not use the bonus to try out a few of the ones you’re not so familiar with? Just remember to check the terms and conditions so you know which of them don’t contribute to the wagering requirements.

Banking Methods at Pokie Spins

So, here’s the section causing us some cause for concern. First up, only having three methods allowing you to deposit (VISA, Neosurf, Mastercard) isn’t that many to start with compared with plenty of other Aussie Casinos.

Secondly, only being able to withdraw with VISA and bank transfer really isn’t enough. We all have different preferences when it comes to how we move our money around so just offering those doesn’t really cut it. It’s probably time that they realise that this may be a serious barrier to getting more customers on board because if you can’t get your money in and out, you’re going to ostracise a fair few punters.

There are a few other issues. The minimum withdrawal is $100 which is pretty steep, the minimum deposit is  $30, which is also a bit on the high side and if you were to secure a big wn from somewhere, you can’t get your dosh out all at once. You can only withdraw $10,000 per 10 business days so if you were to strike gold on a Progressive Jackpot or something, you may have to wait a while till all that money is actually in your pocket.

So like we said at the start, there’s some work to do in this area and let’s hope they do it.

Withdrawing your funds

  • All withdrawal requests carry a 48-hour waiting period.
  • You can only withdraw $10,000 every 10 days.

Pokie Spins Mobile Casino

Like most casinos these days, the site has been fully optimised so you’re not having to put on your glasses and craning your neck to see what you’re doing when playing games on your mobile. It doesn’t admittedly have a stand-alone app but the browser on your mobile should do just fine anyway.

 

Play your favourite games and manage other aspects of your account on any iOS or Android phone, or tablet.

Pokie Spins Customer Security

Safe as houses

This isn’t an area you need to you need to worry about. Like any other self-respecting casino, they use SSL encryption which means that data sent between your computer/phone and their servers can’t be intercepted by anyone who shouldn’t be accessing that stuff. So, your money and details are safe and that’s one less thing to worry about.

Customer support at Pokie Spins

Round the clock assistance

They don’t really offer much in the way of FAQs compared to some of their competitors which is a shame because that’s a cheap, quick and efficient of customers solving their queries with minimum of fuss.

They do have a Live Chat service and you can also send them an e-mail but it’s hard to see why there isn’t a phone service, as well. Not everyone is a fan of written communication so the fact you can’t phone at all seems like another area where they should look into investing in.
