When it comes to online betting, NZ players are big fans of all types of pokies. Arcade Pokies are however, a real favourite, and we have a great selection in store for you!
There's no better place to enjoy these innovative casino games than with us, right here at Platinum Play Casino, thanks to our 100% fair Random Number Generation software and totally secure playing environment.
Enjoy Arcade-Like Action
While conventional pokies and table games offer incredible thrills and big wins, they do have a very specific feel to them. The focus is usually on betting as shrewdly as possible, and beating other players or the House.
Arcade pokies are different. Unlike most pokies, they don't usually feature reels, although symbols do move on the screen and you can still win substantial payouts. The graphics are designed to look like arcade-style video games, and there is always an objective to the gameplay.
Instead of just spinning the reels and hoping symbols line up along active paylines, as in most online pokies, in these variations you always need to complete a task. You need to use more video gaming skill than is required in other casino games, manipulating your keyboard, mouse or touchscreen to make the moves you need to complete your task.
Two of our favourite arcade pokies are Max Damage and the Alien Attack, and Germinator, and we’ve given you a sneak peak of what they have to offer to whet your appetite!
Attack Some Aliens With Max Damage
In this online pokies title you need to shoot alien ships down. Anyone who played a video game with a similar goal when they were younger, such as Space Invaders, will enjoy the healthy dose of nostalgia that Max Damage serves up.
Space ships move across your screen, though the updated graphics are high-definition and not as pixelated as you probably remember from your days in the local arcade. You need to fire at the invading ships as you try to make them explode.
When an alien vessel is destroyed, you win a multiplier of whatever you originally staked and it costs you 10 coins. In other words, you still spend money and get payouts as you would with a typical pokies title, but with a level of interactive gamification that will blow you away.
Breed Wins With Germinator
If you're new to the online betting NZ arcade pokies games can offer, Germinator is a great place to start. Gameplay is very simple, but still highly enjoyable. A variety of brightly coloured germs are seen on the screen in a 6x6 grid, and you win payouts by landing 3 or more of these nasties alongside each other, either horizontally or vertically. Your return is calculated using the value of each germ, and the amount that you bet.
There are no spinning reels, but the groups of matching microbes do more than just trigger a win; they also disappear to make room for new germs. In the Bonus Round, you get to remove all the images of a particular icon, and the spaces are then filled to generate – or germinate – more rewards.
