Aussie-Themed Pokies to Try
I wouldn’t call myself the king of Australian pokies if I didn’t offer an ode to history and culture. That ode comes by way of my best Aussie games to tug on your Mother Country strings, with possible paydays putting the icing on top. With new Joe Fortune pokies always coming in, the assortment of choices is always growing. Then we might add a cherry.
Even with the endless outback of games, there are a few Joe Fortune pokies that stand out for a gen-u-ine Aussie bloke or sheila, born and bred. Spinning through these pokies will take you on adventures through our very own history, nature, and culture as you gather up prizes and belt out the first verse of Advance Australia Fair with momentary reverence (it’s un-Australian to know the second).
As always, once you’re done with these little bush gems, there will forever be more new pokies to tackle for just as much excitement and wins.
But for now, let’s take a look at the top pokies to pique your interest and heat up that sizzling Aussie pride sausage.
The glorious horses of the old Wild West are reminiscent of Australia’s new country when the British began to colonise in 1778, charging in with a stampede of farm horses that gave rise to the wild brumbies that run free to this day across our sunburnt land. In Storm Rider, cowboy boots, lassos, cowboys and cowgirls cover 4 rows and 5 reels with 40 ways to win.
Bronco the horse is the mega wild symbol, and landing 3 can earn you multipliers up to 3x. To bypass the dark, mysterious nature of the cowboy is The Ropin’ Reels Feature. In this feature reel 1 duplicates onto reels 3, 4 or all 5 to get you a guaranteed payout. No mystery there! You might even get to jump on your horse and gallop into the golden sunset of wild west wealth and other rampant prizes when you trigger the Stampede Storm inside the Ropin’ Reels Feature.
One thing’s for sure, this is one of the wildest Joe Fortune Australia-like pokies you can rope in and grab onto the reins.
The wide expanse of open Australian land awaits you, with one of the finest Joe Fortune jackpots Australia has to offer. Roo Riches is a hoppin’ cash adventure rich with prizes. Falcons, foxes, crocodiles and kangaroos spin with the reels, and they know how to keep you bouncing on your toes.
The Cash Chip Spin feature is randomly triggered and could result in a win up to 100x your stake. Your bonus scatter is a rock, and it can award you up to 15 free spins when you land 5 of them.
As every Aussie knows, roos aren’t always in the best of moods, and they tend to hop out when least expected. Far from the highways where kangaroos are a clear and present danger, Roo Riches free spins are always welcomed in the pokie world. Here, all symbols are cash chips, and every cash chip in sight results in a cash prize. If you choose to enter Lightning Bet mode, you can trigger Lightning Respins to strike the reels and award you up to 15,000 coins. Just call me Joey Fortune.
Gold Rush Gus
The Victorian Gold Rush may have passed an age ago, but with Gold Rush Gus you can experience the rush just like the glittery-eyed pioneers and prospectors from long ago.
With 2 mini jackpots and one grand jackpot prize, the earth in this 5×3 pokie is overflowing with historical-grade gold deposits and utterly ripe with riches. Full of gems, keys, and treasure chests, a grueling day of hard work will result in plenty of rewards and maybe one of the biggest Joe Fortune jackpots.
When the mole pops up holding a treasure chest, cross your fingers to see a winning white diamond for the entire progressive, a green or red for the minis, or a golden diamond that gives an instant money award based on your bet. Eureka!
Imagine you’re on the field in Melbourne’s MCG. Your collared jersey is darkening with sweat, and your fingers are gripped firmly around the bat. You know the stakes are high, and you’re about to swing for stacked and expanding wilds, free spins, and the epic win of 100x your stake.
For a dash of excitement and mystery, the expanding wilds will randomly stretch either up or down to fill out the entire reel, granting you massive prizes with their growth spurt. Free spins come with a progressive multiplier that can reach up to 10x, soaring beyond a Six in the game.
Just as the ball careens rapidly through the cricket field, tumbling reels let the winnings pile up with new symbols cascading down until no more winnings – and no more innings – are left to make.
Reels and Wheels
As a heartfelt throwback to Australia’s favourite game hosts of a bygone era, John Burgess and Adriana Xenides would be proud to see you spinning these Reel and Wheels with a tribute to Wheel of Fortune. Anyone with a heartbeat is bound to have seen the show at least once, and anyone with an empty space in their wallet is bound to fall in love when they play Joe Fortune pokies Wheel of Fortune style.
With just 3 reels and 1 winning line, this game feels classic and clean. What you want to see is a bonus symbol appear on the line. That will trigger the jackpot bonus wheel, which is the real star of this show.
On the wheel, you can practically hear John making wise cracks and Adriana clapping you along as you spin for multipliers, and maybe even access to the jackpot wheel itself. If you’re lucky enough to get it, you won’t be taking home food mixers or silverware sets. With this game, you could win the largest Vegas Jackpot and buy the whole show set!
When it comes to Joe Fortune Australian pokies, there’s no doubt that these five take the cake. You’ll be in touch with your hometown roots, heart bursting, as you land Joe Fortune jackpots that would make your neighbours gasp. Sing it with me now: we’ve boundless plains to share…
